The website is completely owned by the client, on receipt of the final payment based on contract. Watabe Digital cannot lay claim to ownership to any website designed by us. We provide a simple link in the portfolio of our website, to show case the work we have done, but do not lay claim to ownership..
If you agree to any of our services quote, you will receive an invoice for 60% of the quoted price. This is to be paid before any design work can begin. On completion of a project, the balance of the project is to be paid after the project has been approved by the client and before it is loaded live..
In the majority of cases a meeting isn’t necessary and most of our websites are generally completed with contact / system via email and telephone only. If a meeting is required, we can meet you at our office or your place of work or at a suggested coffee shop or restaurant with internet access.
Website time depends on the type of website that needs to be designed, client budget, as well as the workload that we have. Some websites require less coding and implementation than others, therefore that will take less time to design. If we have a lot of websites to design during a specific month, a website will take a lot longer to finish but within a time proximity of 3 to 28 days. Websites are designed on a first come first serve basis. It is therefore vitally important that all the required information and images, as well as the website deposit are received in time, so the design process can begin. You will be provide an expected time line in the formal quote.
There is no set price for website design as well as system development. There are different types of websites and systems, and they each differ in price. The prices on the website or system, a user guideline and a full quote must be given, in order to provide an actual cost for the design or service.
We don't charge an hourly rate like some design companies do. We charge a flat rate for the month or annual based on agreement with our client including you . During that time you can make as many textual and images changes as you want. However if you need to add new pages for your website, we will charge you for new pages.
All information and photographs are to be supplied in electronic format – for example, the files output by a digital camera and the words in MS word or similar format.
All websites are created with search engines in mind and the website design is compliant with search engine guidelines. It is a good idea for your website to be re-evaluated in time as over a period of time the search engines do alter their rules and algorithms and you will want to be certain that your website is kept up to date and complies with new rules. We also provide you with the correct meta tag information and notify the major search engines on completion of your site, so the major search engines can start indexing your website.
Maintenance is checking that your site is looked after during the month. This means checking that there is no down time, backing up your website, backing up your database. Websites are backed up ever week.
Once your site has been submitted to the top Search Engines they may require several weeks, or even months to actually spider and list your web site in their directory. How fast your site is listed depends on each individual Search Engines database update schedule.
