We choose to pay monthly for our phone, our car insurance, maybe even our sofa, so why don’t we do the same for our website? A question we often get asked, “Why are more businesses choosing pay monthly web design?”. Well, we think it’s because it’s a brilliant idea for a number of reasons. Most businesses realise the importance of paying for a professional website to help them stand out and generate new sales and enquiries online. However, web design can come with large upfront fees which can be a financial burden on businesses, especially if you are just starting out. This is where pay monthly comes in, no large upfront fees, no hidden costs, just one fee that you pay each month.

So, what is pay monthly web design exactly? Well, it pretty much explains it in the name but we will expand. Pay monthly web design is a process where the customer will pay their web company a fixed monthly fee. This payment will be a fraction of the total sum for the time and effort spent creating and supporting their website.
Different web companies have different terms and commitment lengths so do your research to make sure that their offering works for your business. For example, some don’t have a contract and you just pay your monthly fee for as long as you need the website, but most of the time you’ll never own the website. Others have a minimum term you have to sign up.
At Red Box, we offer a feature-packed professional website and all we ask is that you commit for two years. After that, you just go on to a rolling monthly agreement. When you’re ready for a new design, you don’t pay any more, you just commit for another two years and we’ll build you a brand new website.What are the benefits of pay monthly web design?
The main reason why working with not only a good web design agency, but one that gives you the option to pay monthly is that most will include time for updates and changes to your website. This will allow you to get changes such as images, copy, new pages, blog posts, all included in your monthly price.
Most agencies where you pay for your website in one will also charge hosting and support fees on top. Whereas at a pay monthly agency you will get these two essentials included in your monthly payment, meaning you have no surprise bills.
With our pay monthly packages you also have the option to add additional services, maybe you would like a shop? Or maybe you want us to improve your SEO? You can add these packages which will just be an add on cost to your monthly fee.Is a pay monthly web design right for me?
So you know what a pay monthly website is and the benefits of one, but now you need help to find out if a pay monthly website is right for you. The main decision you have to make is would you prefer to spread your payments out over a certain amount of time or would you prefer to pay for it all in one?
With our pay monthly websites, as well as being able to spread the cost of your website, you’ll also benefit from our 5-star support service. Your monthly payments will cover ongoing support, with us fixing anything that might go wrong, along with anything you send across, such as amendments and images that you would like to change. Our aim is to create a pro-active service to help you get the most out of your monthly payments and ensure your website is always looking and performing at its best.I think I have made my decision, but what package is suitable for me?
At Red Box, we offer our pay monthly web design in two packages: Red Box Lite and the Red Box All-In. It all depends on how big your business is and what you would like to achieve overall. We recently wrote a blog post that talks about “What is the purpose of your website,” which might be helpful if web design is new to you.
But let’s talk about the packages. First of all, our Red Box Lite is the smaller package that we offer. You get a beautifully designed website with 6 pages to promote your business. This is a perfect option if you have just started out or you have a small business and just need a good web presence, but don’t expect your website to need much updating. As your business grows and you’re ready for a bigger website that needs more updating and support, you can then move up to our Red Box All-In package.
Red Box All-In is where you get much more control and support for your business growth. You can add up to 15 pages and any feature from the list on our website. Red Box All-In also gives you more support time, where we can amend your site, upload blog or news posts, we can even help with the SEO of your website.
With our Red Box All-In package, you will receive a monthly report where we will tell you the work that’s been carried out, how much time you have left for support and amends, and how your keywords are positioned within Google. You can even use your support time to have some basic SEO work carried out on your website.
With both of our packages, you will always get your domain and SSL certificate included.
To keep our customers happy with our service and have a website that they are proud of, when their two-year payments are up, they can have a complete re-design of their website, at no extra cost. We just ask that they commit for a further two years to cover costs for the website, support and ongoing amends.
So if you have made it to the end, I hope we have inspired you to take advantage of all the benefits that a pay monthly website has to offer. If you have any questions, either check our website or contact us, we would be happy to help.
