Things always go better when we know where we are heading. This means the journey will only be smooth if you know what you want to achieve. If it is still a little bit hazy, thats OK, just book a discovery session and I can help you flesh it out, or just write up a list of what you want to achieve and then we can get the ball rolling!
Building an audience online is hard work and it takes time. Passion is the fuel you need to keep going when all the chips are down and you feel like you’re smashing your head against a brick wall. If you’re not passionate about what you do, then you need to ask why...
Building an audience through producing great content is the only way to generate new customers online. If you don’t already have an audience you should be prepared to build one. We can help you with that - it's what I do best, but we will need to be onboard, to help me help you!
If you really want to knock one out of the park, you’re going to need to invest some hard earned cash. That’s just the way it is.I don’t work for equity in your start-up and I don’t cut corners. You don’t need to re-mortgage your house but you are going to need to treat this as an investment and if you do everything I tell you, you’ll get a positive return.
Project momentum can slow to a crawl if you don't have time or resources to complete the project . If your schedule is full or if you're uncontactable, and we have to make a quick design decision everything will slow to a crawl and delay your project delivery and potentially others.
I'll ask the right questions to uncover the truth about why you need a new website and exactly what it is you're trying to achieve. Some of these questions may seem a little uncomfortable. In fact, if it doesn't get a little awkward, then chances are I haven't done my job.
Once I have all the information I need, I'll build a visual sitemap so we can all get on the same page very quickly about what it is we're trying to communicate and the best way to structure the information. We discuss how best to arrange the content so users can navigate the site easily.
Here's where we get to play around with where we are going to put everything on different pages of the site. There are no colors or images to get in the way, this is purely about how everything will be laid out. We decide how to structure the pages so that users can easily interact with the site.
Now instead of trying to tell you what I intend to build and throwing a whole lot of technical terms around, at this point I'll build an interactive prototype in the browser to show you how my solution will work. With no attention to design at this stage, it's no michaelangelo, but the it's our roadmap for moving foward.
The fun begins during the design stage because we get to play around with colors, fonts, layouts, and graphics to bring your interactive prototype to life to match your brand identity.
Finally, we go underground for a couple of weeks and make sure everything is plugged in and tested before deploying your shiny new website to your hosting server so you can show it off to the whole world.
The cost of a website can vary depending on various factors, just like the cost of a house may vary depending on how many bedrooms it has; so it is difficult to estimate without more information. Some customers have budgets of $2-3K, others $700. Unlike many other developers I do accommodate for all budgets and project sizes, with websites starting $587 for a starter business or blogging site.
The time it takes to produce a website depends on the size and complexity of your site and the quality of content that you have ready to go. A starter site package will take a week if ALL your content is ready to go. A custom website typically takes around 2 - 4 weeks from beginning to end. When you decide to hire us, we will allocate you a timeframe for the project.
You can BYO or we can include it in your package. Our managed WordPress hosting partners offer fantastically fast and secure Wordpress hosting with CDN option available. (which means it runs uber fast anywhere in the world!)
Yes it will. All the websites we design work on all devices. Depending on your requirements we can design and develop your site using responsive design so that the site is optimised for mobile devices.
A Content Management System is a tool that allows you to maintain the pages of your website yourself, without the need for any technical skills. A CMS allows you to edit and add pages, images, products or blog entries to your website. No additional software is required – all you need is a web browser and an internet connection. We specialize in Wordpress (CMS) which powers more than 25% of the internet.
Yes I provide all our clients with training on maintaining and using their website as part of handover. We also provide videos for you, so you can learn more about Wordpress.
We sure can. I specialize in developing a marketing strategy to suit your business and in our custom package provide an option for website and marketing performance reporting so you can adjust your site and content to achieve maximum impact.
Search Engine Optimisation is all about getting your website higher up in the search results on search engines such as Google. The higher up the results you are the more traffic (and customers) you’re likely to get. There are many aspects that go into achieving good SEO, and one of the most important is the copy (words) on your website. Focus on well written, keyword rich and appropriate content is the key. One thing which I unfortunately cannot guarantee (and nobody can) is to get you to the top of Google's listings. What I can do is make sure that your site is positioned with the best possible chance to climb as quickly as possible.
I don’t directly write your content, however if you need help with this I can put you in contact with a copywriter who specialises in writing for the web.
Yes I can! This is another of our specialities.
A domain name is your address on the internet. Typically this would be something like yourcompany.com.au
Web hosting is a service that allows your website to be viewed on the Internet. It’s basically a computer housed in a data centre that runs your website and email.
When I worked with Butterfly Space they really touched my heart. Alice and Josie's determination to help the local community suffering from malnutrition, disease, and poverty really put things in perspective - so I wanted to do everything I could to help. That's why 2.5% from every website I build goes to help the UK registered Charity Butterflyspacemalawi.com.
