We can appreciate that the process of having a website designed can be an overwhelming experience. With that being the case and in order to minimise the stress and any hassles, we work together with our clients throughout the entire process and provide continued on-going support after the website has been completed and handed over.
Please find below a few of the most commonly asked questions and answers.
The actual cost to create a website can vary and will depend on the number of pages and functionality required as well as whether you require CMS or Non CMS. Generally our websites start from around $2500. Please note: All the websites we create are custom designed to suit the client and we do not use Templates! Plus all of the website we create come with On-page SEO incorporated into the design to help with the ranking.
This will depend on the website size and complexity involved. Other factors will include how long it takes for the client to provide us with the content etc. A normal website will take approx. 2- 3 weeks to complete.
Yes. All of the websites we create are fully responsive ( mobile friendly ), and as such will render on all devices. Ie Desktops, Laptops, Tablets and Mobile phones.
Our web designers and SEO team have the knowledge and experience which enables us to offer complete web development solutions including: CMS websites such as: WordPress, Joomla, Magento, E-commerce shopping carts, as well as Non CMS sites like Bootstrap. We also have a Software Engineer to handle any custom programming functionality that might be required.
Yes, not only do we design websites from scratch, but we can also redesign and maintain existing websites. However, depending on the original build quality and coding of your current website, it might be more cost effective to simply utilise the existing content and design a totally new website, which is more current and modern.
Yes, we can. Although because you know yourself and what you do better than us means ideally it is much better if you provide us with general content required to be included in the website. From there we can assist in elaborating on the content as well as making it attractive to search engines like Google.
The website design itself is extremely important and needs to be done right and therefore should not be rushed. Take the extra time to sit down and work out exactly what pages your website will require along with their respective content and more important, how you envisage the overall website design will look and function. Do not forget to allow for growth, ie what other possible pages will site will require in the future!
Of course we can assist you and guide you through what needs to be done, however by having something prepared and ideas in mind prior to seeing us can be very beneficial and could even save you money.
No. Unlike a number of designers out there who do not actually perform the work themselves but instead offer you a really cheap price ( under quote ) and then outsource to a developer overseas, all the work we perform is done in Melbourne and Sydney.
No. Although it is nice to put a face to the name and meet the client in person, it isn't always necessary or possible. Not being able to meet the client in no way poses a negative impact on the process and end result. It simply means that any discussions take place via phone, email or Skype. Whether the client is local or lives interstate, we make sure that you are kept well informed during and after the website design process has been completed.
Yes, Our website design portfolio is extensive and boasts a range of website designs spanning over many different industries including Engineering, Health & Fitness, Finance, Building, IT, Automotive, Education, Furniture, Chemicals, Manufacturing, Music and Entertainment just to name a few.
Content management systems (CMS) are a software system such as WordPress, Joomla, Magento which allows you to maintain and update your website at any time. You can update text content, images and add new pages etc without necessarily having any previous coding experience. With that being said, you must understand that these types of websites can be easily corrupted if the user makes a mistake plus they can be a target for hackers, so you will need to be vigilant and keep your security patches etc up to date.
It is important to understand that content management systems will not suit everyone and as such will depend on the structure, size and complexity and of course how often the content needs to be updated. In many cases having a Content Management Systems website may prove to be overkill and a waste on money.
Yes. As we include 1 or 2 hours of initial training once the website has been paid for and handed over to the client. We also offer on-going support should the situation arise.
The term SEO or Search Engine Optimisation is used to describe the process applied to a website in order to increase its ranking in search engines like Google. Consisting of 2 key components ( On-page and Off-Page SEO ) the SEO process involves fine tuning a website to make it more attractive to the search engines for certain targeted keyword phrases than your other competitors. Website optimisation is an integral part of website design and development process and should therefore not be overlooked.
If your main priority is to have your website ranking well in search Engines and outranking all your other competitors and plan rely on your on-line presence to play a major role to promote your product, then SEO is a must! Those who choose not to invest in search engine optimisation will usually see their website slide down the rankings.
