Its been such a busy week at curlytowers(tm) we’ve had so many people bobbing by that I’ve had to buy a calendar out of the office petty cash (pound coins I found in a drawer ). I thought it may be a good time to describe how we see things, how we work, and if we are right for you.
We are a rather small company. We work from a lovely office that we adore upstairs in the wonderful Remedy Centre in Preston (they can fix anything thats bothering you!) We are extremely proud of the fact that we have a sign outside.
We believe in what we term the business rules of ‘cricket’ or fair play. We treat our clients exactly as we would like to be treated. If we were running a business and wanted some design work / seo / graphic design we would want:
- Some really nice guys we could talk to on the phone and ask endless amounts of questions
- Really really quick response to any emails
- Have a physical presence, an office we could visit to have a chat rather than a back bedroom operation that could shut up shop any day
- Mockups before we pay anything, and when we do pay, would want flexible options to pay
- …most importantly, and rather cheap of ourselves, we would want somebody cheap
This matter of money / cost / price is built-in quite deeply to the Curlykale world.
When it boils down to it, we don’t charge very much. True, you can get websites and design work done cheaper from freelancers and certainly offshore. But you can also pay a lot (LOT) more. In the past week we have had wonderful people bob by who have been quoted at least 400% more than our quotation.
We strongly believe you may not have to pay a large amount of money. The web and general technology is moving on at such a rapid pace, developments such as wordpress, joomla and other fantastic content management systems enable the costs of webdesign to plummet. We want to pass these savings on to you.
If you want a completely bespoke website build, built from scratch, that has taken weeks of design and flipcharting we may not be the guys for you. If you want somebody to spend weeks agonising over a brand, pouring over font books, researching colours, trends and curves, we may not be the guys for you.
If you want a beautiful website that converts, need a flyer designed, need a logo or need your website on the first page, and just need everything to work and earn you some money, and you dont want to spend bags of money, please give us a ring.
We’ve been working with local clients now for over ten years. We have formed some fantastic relationships. What gets us up in the morning is knowing we are making a difference to small businesses looking to grow. We don’t have a trendy office, we don’t have trendy cars, and we don’t do lunch meetings with trendy coffee. We are far from corporate, and as you have just learnt, only recently purchased a calendar.
If you are looking for down to earth, friendly people to work with, please give us a call.
I do hope I havent rambled on too long!
Enjoy your weekends
