Got to keep moving.
Things have moved on a lot here at RuckinRugby in the last few years and you will see a distinct difference between the earliest websites and those that have gone live more recently.
Brand new for the 2014/15 season we introduced a new, simple price structure and features set. Click here to read more about why you should choose RuckinRugby as your partner.
New for the 2017/18 Season we are bringing all RuckinRugby web packages in line with our business brand, in order to streamline our administration. This will reduce costs for clubs who need more hands on support and it will also give you more incentive to stay with RuckinRugby for longer.
Website Club Package: £1400*
Since around mid 2012, all of my websites have been built using WordPress which in my opinion is the best content management system (CMS) solution in the world for 99% of website builds. Every website I build is responsive, this means it is designed to operate 100% correctly on every device from an iPhone to a tablet, a PC or a Mac.
Once the WordPress framework is in place, every website is unique. We will meet and talk about your project and what you want to achieve. Together we will work to create your brand and look at how best to represent it on-line. We will register domain names, social media handles and put everything in place that needs to be done in order to make sure your website can grow as big as you want – we get the foundations right.
Imagery is a very important part of my projects and I work with a number of photographers who specialise in different genres and will be happy to meet you to discuss your needs.
My wordpress builds start at £1400 +VAT and this includes a basic digital branding service that will be enough to get your website a professional look and provide the building blocks needed for any on or offline marketing you want to do in the future.
Hosting & Maintenance
Every website I build is hosted on my server and maintained by me – I do not design-and-run, I am your online presence partner for life. My ongoing hosting and maintenance fees start at £20.75 +VAT per month and this covers the physical hosting of your website and email, rigorous anti-hacking and security protection and 24/7 support. Read more about our hosting service here.
As part of my hosting service I also ensure the basics are in place in order to get you seen on Google. I can also open an Analytics account that records your visitors’ stats and saves them for you. I can provide monthly reports to you for a small additional fee.
Free website appraisal
If you already have a website and you would like to have a free professional appraisal of it’s design and effectiveness then please, contact me and I will get back to you with my thoughts.
Website Player Package: £1100*
The Player Profile website package is exactly the same as the club package above, but is lower in cost at just £1100 due to the reduced amount of work involved. Player websites are all about raising a player’s profile and given them an opportunity to put their own facts online – if you don’t take control of your online profile, somebody else will!
More and more young player are switching on to the idea of making plans early and ensuring they’re looking at options long before they intend their playing career to end. A very wise philosophy.
Our first player profile website was for Danielle ‘Nolli’ Waterman and off the back of that, we are now working on websites for Vicky Fleetwood and Katie Mason.
* Infinite payment options are available, all at 0% interest. Never let cost prevent you from discussing your options, at no obligation.
The last addition is the integration of our new ‘ClubHub’ system. You can integrate ClubHub with any of our packages and the additional cost is dependent on how many members you have. The main function of the ClubHub system is to allow your members to register and PAY their membership online, with a credit card. The collection of subs and the organisation of large junior sections are two primary concerns to our clients right now, and both are areas where clubs lose money. With ClubHub installed:
- We guarantee an improvement in subs collections and timely payment.
- ALL members are in a single database for your ease of management.
- Once all members are in a secure area they can be assigned to teams and grades.
- All internal club communication can take place in this secure area.
- Notice boards can be placed online with public and private messages – easily.
- Merchandise can be sold online during registration or any time to both members and non-members alike – MAKE money for your club.
There are many, many ways in which the addition of the ClubHub function can help make your club more viable and it makes all administration and organisation much more easy for you so that you can get back on the pitch where you belong. Just go to www.clubhub.co.nz and have a look at the testimonials. You can use a 3 month trial for free and take it or leave it – we charge a small fixed fee of around £6 per ‘playing’ member per annum in the UK (please ask for other countries) and depending on how many members you have, you may well be subject to a reduction in your annual hosting fees too. You are invoiced monthly for this part and only for members that have joined that month.[/su_column]
