How much does a website cost?
There are a lot of variables at play when it comes to building a website. Our basic business sites begin around the $4,000 mark and go from there depending on your specific needs.
How long does it take to design and build a website?
A basic website will typically take around 4 – 6 weeks. Depending on the complexity of your needs, this will obviously vary. We supply a customised timeline as a part of our proposal process.
Do I need a domain name?
Yes. If you don’t already have one, we can assist you in setting this up.
Do I need my own web hosting?
We offer website hosting to help simplify the process for you and help with ongoing maintenance and updates. If you already have a hosting service, you’re welcome to use it as long as it is suitable for your needs.
Will my website work on mobile devices?
Absolutely. We build all our websites with a ‘mobile-first’ approach. Your site will look great on all devices, optimised for mobile phones, tablets and desktop computers.
Do you do E-commerce/Online Store websites?
We sure do! We can assist with custom development of WooCommerce websites as well as Shopify store development.
What is a Content Management System (CMS)?
A Content Management System is a web-based tool that makes updating your website simple, without any technical skills required. You can add and update your pages, images, products and blog entries simply by logging in through your web browser.
Do you provide training?
Yes. We provide all our clients with training to help you keep your website updated.
Can you maintain our website for us?
We can. We have a number of ongoing website care packages with various levels of support including hosting, software and security updates, backups, SEO, and content management.
Can you help me with Social Media and Email Marketing?
Absolutely. We believe in ensuring there is great cohesion between all your web platforms. We can assist in email marketing, Facebook page setup and helping you share your site’s content across these platforms.
What is Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)?
Search Engine Optimisation is all about maximising the number of visitors to your site by ensuring that your site appears high on the list of results returned by a search engine.
Many aspects go into achieving great SEO, but one of the most important is the quality and relevance of the copy (content) on your website.
How long will it take to get on the first page of Google?
This depends on a number of factors – your content, location and competitors for starters. We provide initial SEO configuration on all the websites we build, but it’s more than likely your website will require more than this to be competitive.
Enquire about our Website Care Packages for more information about our ongoing SEO support.
Do you write the content for my site?
Not directly, but we can help tweak the content you supply to suit the page layout and help with focused keywords for good SEO.
Can you design my logo?
Yes, we can! We also offer complete branding packages which set you up with business cards, letterheads, envelopes and the rest.
