Frequently Asked Questions …
“Okay … so who runs this place?”
Just me, Vixx – hi! You can find out a little more about right here. :)
“I don’t know anything about websites …help!”
That’s okay – it’s what I’m here for! I can help you with anything and everything and have frequently designed for people with absolutely NO experience at all . . . so don’t be embarrassed or scared to ask me anything at all. We were all new to this once!
“What sort of website should I have?”
Once you’ve decided that yes, you’d like a website, what kind of site would you like it to be? Are you trying to sell a product or service? Or is it a personal or fan site, or an online journal? Do you want to appear professional and austere, or are you looking for a more friendly approach?
“What’s a domain name? How can I get one?”
From the onset, I can help you arrange everything you need to get your site online. From helping you choose your domain name, registering it and then choosing your web host provider, I can help ensure that you elect the right package for you and your site.
“What about hosting?”
I can help you with that too! I can recommend a whole host of reliable web space providers, but if the thought of any of this puts you into a sweat, don’t worry – I can host you myself too!
“How long does it take?”
Well, this really depends upon the complexity of the job at hand but I can usually turn a project around within 20-25 working days (this excludes weekends and public holidays) of clearance of your deposit. Please be aware, though, that when I give estimations, I mean it! I work for as long as it takes to get your site to your satisfaction!
“Why don’t you have a definitive price list?”
As every single project and website is different, it’s impossible to give estimates without seeing first what it you’re looking for. That’s why I ask you to complete the Project Assessment Form as soon as possible – it’s that that will enable me to provide you with a clear estimation of price and turnaround.
“Why do I have to pay a deposit?”
It takes hours and hours to make a good website. Even the conceptualisation – the bit where I think about the design, colours, layout etc. AGES before I start putting it together – can take time. I won’t waste time bidding for work. I don’t create concepts. I work in partnership with my clients from the moment they pay their deposit – and that way, you always know that I’m dedicating 100% of my time to actual clients and waiting list rather than chasing new ones.
“What’s special about Geek Goddess UK?”
I know – us web designers? We all pretty much seem the same. But believe me when I tell you that we don’t all do the same things! Yes, I’m a designer but I care as much about the backend – the code that goes into making a design – as much as I do the front. I don’t cut corners. I don’t fudge. I take time and pleasure in ensuring that every image and line of code is as perfect as it should be for you and your site.
And as this site is run by me to my high, exacting standards, you’ll know that every graphic and piece of code is prepared and written by me or a member of my painfully talented, hand-picked team of amazing designers. I aim to only work on one project at a time, ensuring that each site gets my full and undivided attention until it completion. In short, I take pride and great, great enjoyment in what I do!
Geek Goddess isn’t about profits or overheads. It’s merely the small project of a nethead wanting to help as many people as possible get online with style and substance and stay there!
