What is a Domain Name?
Your domain name is your calling card online. The digital name for your business and you can acquire these from as little as $30 for two years (for a .com.au registered domain name) We can take care of the domain name registration for you as long as we have a copy of your ABN, so we can register this on your behalf. This simply means that while we help you get your domain name, you retain ownership of it. All new builds come with a FREE domain name registration for the first year included.
What is web hosting?
Hosting is like renting storage. Every website needs somewhere to live online, so the first point of any website build is to acquire some hosting - so your website and email accounts have somewhere to live online. We provide FREE hosting for every new web build for the first year so you can establish yourself online quickly and easily.
Can we discuss our new website and the ideas we have for it?
Definitely! Great websites are born out of straight forward communication. While we can complete your website over the internet via our online email proofing system, what better way to get your ideas across than by giving us a call to talk one to one and let us get to know your business better. We are on hand throughout the process keeping in touch to make sure we stay on point both in design and they development of your new website.
What will it all cost?
Depending on the design and style of site will ultimately determine the price of a design and build. Smaller sites with a single page of information only cost $630+gst. The larger and more complex the website design the higher the cost. Most businesses will be able to get a striking, unique web design for their business for around $1200 dollars. eCommerce systems with heightened security and invoicing systems start as low as $2500+gst. We always deliver the best possible quote for your budget and requirements and we work to a fixed price point, so you know going into the project what the complete cost will be.
How long does it all take?
Usually most sites go live within 2 weeks of initial design brief, once we have a copy of your logo and content and some design direction we start proofing you designs within 72 hours. From here we revise and deliver final proofs to suit your online business. This process usually takes 5-10 days to build a 6-8 page website. Once the designs are approved the build process takes around 5-10 days for the full site to go live and the final stages of the search engine optimisation to be integrated. During the design and revision phase of the project you’ll get regular design revisions within 48 hours for any amendments and adjustments to layouts so we keep the design process moving as quickly and smoothly as possible so we can get you online as quickly as possible.
How do I get the information for the website to you?
Anything digital is usually the fastest way, if you have some word documents, or pdf files of text you’d like included, and any images you have we will set up a link or take these over email/cd/usb so that we can use your content in the initial designs. We retouch images in Photoshop to ensure the best outlook on the net as well so even if you have images taken on a mobile media device we can usually work some retouching on to make sure they stand out online.
Do you charge for every minor change or amendment to the site?
We supply all our websites complete with a content management system, this means you’ll be able to edit your site live online and add images, text and more content to the existing pages. If you need further design changes or you’d like some extra work undertaken then we quote on a fixed price basis so you know going into any changes what the costs will be.
I’ve heard of SEO or Search Engine Optimisation do I need this and how does it work?
SEO is the art of ensuring any website is ranked efficiently by the major search engines, there’s no point in building a great looking site if no one can find it. All our sites come with Google integrations (Sitemapping, Analytics and Google Webmaster Toolset) as well as some fundamentals included in the design and development process (Meta Tags, Page Titles, H1 tags and more) In short - because our websites are all custom built, we build in the integral components of a search engine friendly site from the start, so you have the foundations of a search engine friendly website. Depending on your specific keyword requirements we provide SEO packages to promote your website online. Call us today on 1300 84 21 25 to discuss your specific needs.
Will my site be on mobile devices?
All the sites we design are built to be mobile compatible, which means your smart new iPhone or Android handheld will all be able to display the site optimally
Can I get some flashy slideshows on my website?
Certainly, we suggest to get some movement onto web pages to bring them to life online. Our slideshows are able to be changed in the content management system once completed so you can control the content of these once your websites complete and online.
