- Search Engine Optimisation (SEO):
During the design and build of the website Boost Digital Media Ltd is not responsible for the client’s on-going website promotion. Should the client require the site to be promoted on an ongoing basis a separate contract must be drawn up. The order in which websites are ranked in the natural results are controlled by the search engines. Whilst we may optimise your website for this we are unable to make any guarantees of its success of any search engine promotion activity.
- Design & Approval:
Once we have taken a brief from the client we will then produce a series of designs based on this. Initially we will produce 2 home page designs. You will need to choose one of these 2 designs for your home page and a further 2 designs will be created 1 of these will be for standard page and the other will be for the contact page website.
Should you require additional designs or if you are not happy with any of the 3 designs provided an additional charge will be added. This charge will be at the set rate of £60.00 for each additional design carried out.

- IMPORTANT Failure to Provide Website Content:
We are small but busy digital agency. To remain as efficient as possible we must ensure that work we have programmed is carried out at the scheduled time. On occasions we will reject other work and enquiries to ensure that your work is carried out and completed on time.
This is why it is vital that you provide all the require information in advance. On any occasion where we cannot progress with your website because you have not provided the required information when you have agreed to do so, and we are delayed as a result, we reserve the right to impose a surcharge of up to 25%.
Also, if your job involves Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) we need the text content for your site up front so that the SEO can be planned and completed efficiently.
If you agree to provide us with the required information and subsequently fail to do so within four weeks of project commencement we reserve the right to close the project and the balance remaining becomes payable immediately.
Simply put all the above condition says, is not give us the go ahead to start until you are ready to do so.

We will charge an additional design fee if we have to approach our design team and a separate development fee for creating the new template.
All amends need to be made before the website goes live, content amends are down to the clients, unless you have requested for us to quote for content to be added to the website on top of development of your website.

All quotations are limited to 28 days net. Should the client decide to change the requirements of the brief during the build a separate quote and price will be drawn up for the works. Where it isn’t possible for Boost Digital Media Ltd to produce a separate quote for the works, the client understands that the works will incur further costs and this will be added to the final invoice as a result.
