WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO APPROACH YOU FOR A QUOTE
Every client and every project is different in their own way. As a bespoke agency, we customize the work for the businesses so we may always meet (and surpass) their creative needs within budget. For our Agency, it is very important that our clients establish a general budget prior to contacting us – just as if contacting an Architect to build you a house, his first question would be to know what kind of house will he be building based on the client’s investment. Once you have an idea of budget, then you can outline the general ideas of your project; inspiration imagery, point form needs and other possible references that will help us visualise your next amazing venture. Once all this is put together, then it is time to get in touch and discuss how we can help you bring your vision to life.
I'M LOOKING TO CREATE A WEBSITE THAT I CAN MANAGE LONG TERM - DO YOU OFFER THIS?
Most of our websites are created on a WordPress platform, as we feel this to be on the best user-friendly softwares right now on the web. It is also highly indexed on Google and various other Search Engines. Our goal is always to empower our clients to learn how to manage their websites long-term, so they can create active webspaces to showcase their company’s culture and daily news.
CAN MY WEBSITE BE CONNECTED TO SOCIAL MEDIA AND WORK ON TABLETS AND SMARTPHONES.
Yes, having websites connected to one’s social media accounts is quite standard for our company. Also, all webspaces as of 2014 have been created fully responsive, to work across all forms of desktops and mobile devices.

HOW MANY WEB CONCEPTS DO YOU SHOW TO A CLIENT BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH SITE
In order to not create a back and forth of submission and revision, we must be fully clear on the type of site our clients wish to have, prior to starting any work. Allwood Agency then prepares a mock site for review and present a semi-completed webspace which we can perfect from there. We have yet to create a test site that our clients do not love. Once approved, we proceed with balance of web design. In this sense, we work on a very precise method where we are incredibly clear of our mandate prior to start, which ensures results every time.
WHAT IS THE STARTING POINT ONCE WE AGREE ON A PROJECT TOGETHER
Once we are both very clear with the project details, budget and timelines, we then draft an Agency Agreement which outlines our full work promise together. Both parties sign this document and a deposit is left based on agreed terms. Then, we get to doing what we do – so you can do what you do!
