What are the objectives of the website?

Everything is built using industry best practices for page load speed, mobile optimisation, HTML / CSS practices. We use Wordpress and Webflow as our preferred CMS platforms, both give you as the end user the ability to make future changes and add posts easily.

Q. How much does a website cost?
A. This can vary depending on things such as how big the website is (number of pages) and the features and functionality that is included in the website. Our typical website projects range from $5,500 - $25,000 (inc GST).
Q. How long does it take to design and build a website?
A. It’s generally an 8 -12 week process, depending on the complexity and the size of the project.
Q. Do you write the copy or do I provide that?
A. We can, or you can. If you’d like our SEO copywriters to re-write or create your website copy, we will provide that. If you have usable copy, then we will use it! Before we provide you with a quote, we’ll do an assessment of your copywriting requirements.
Q. How do you ensure the site has been properly optimised for SEO?
A. The second step in our website build process is to audit the SEO landscape in your market. This will help us select the right keywords and site information architecture. Our copywriters are skills in writing SEO optimised content. Plas, we run through a go-live checklist that further optimised the site for SEO (things like robots.txt, sitemaps, etc.).
Q. Once the site is built do you offer training?
A. Yes! We offer a round of training for your team on how to make simple updates to your website using the Content Management System. You’ll be able to change photos, update images and add new blog posts and pages.
Q. Can you integrate my website with my CRM?
A. Yes! And we recommend that we do this, especially if you have an offline sales process. Linking the forms on your website to your CRM will provide a valuable link between advertising and marketing campaigns, and sales made offline.
Q. Can you design my logo?
A. No, we don’t offer logo design services. This is best handled by an agency that specialises in brand development.
Q. Do you build Ecommerce sites?
A. We can build you an e-commerce website, but it’s not our core focus. We excel in developing lead generating websites.
Q. What should I look for when hiring a web designer / developer?
A. Look for previous experience and the quality of the websites they have built before. Ask to see case studies for how these websites are performing in terms of generating leads and sales.
Q. Why would I consider Webflow over say Wordpress as my website platform?
A. Recently we’ve switched to focus on building in Webflow. It gives our conversion designers a way to create webpages with very clean code and lightning fast page load speed. This website you’re reading now was developed on Webflow!
Q. If I build my website in Wordpress and decide I’d prefer Webflow can it be moved over?
A. Yes, if you wanted to move to Webflow we can provide you a quote to transfer across.
Q. What makes a great web design?
A. Our definition of great web design is a beautiful website, that’s easy to use and gets results.
Q. What platforms do you build with?
A. We usually build websites in Wordpress because it’s got a large user base, comes with exceptional 3rd party plugins, and it’s easy for clients to use. Lately we’ve been building in Webflow - our website you’re reading now was developed on Webflow.
Q. Will my website work on mobile devices?
A. Yes! We use best practice design optimised to all device sizes. Your website will render beautifully on desktop, tablets and mobile phones.
Q. Are your websites built with a conversion focus for driving enquiries and leads?
A. Yes! Our goal will be to develop a high performing website. We measure high performance by leads and sales generated!
Q. Once the site is live do you offer maintenance plans?
A. Yes, we can provide monthly maintenance plans for your website to make sure security, plugins and key functionality maintains up to date.
Q. If I selected Wordpress do you use a theme or build from scratch?
A. No. We develop the website from scratch from our own templates because our developers don’t like to work to the limitations of pre-built themes. Often, we’ll find themes have been coded poorly, which adds to the work to develop.
Q. We have an existing system - can you make our website talk to that?
A. It depends if that system has an open API. If it does, then yes, we can usually make the website talk to your backend systems.
Q. If you redevelop my website how do I maintain my search rankings when it’s switched over?
A. We run an assessment of the current performance of your SEO prior to rebuilding your website. High ranking pages will be earmarked to pay special attention to, and avoid changing too much that would impact rankings.
Q. Will you also setup my email?
A. Yes, we can setup your email accounts if you are starting the business from scratch.
Q. My business isn't in your city, can you still build my website?
A. Yes! We can build you a website no matter where you are. We’ve built websites for clients all over the country.
Q. I already have a website. How do I know if it needs to be redesigned?
A. Does your site look like it was built in the 90s? Does it load pages slower that 5 seconds? Has your business changed significantly since your last website refresh? Is it difficult to use on mobile devices? Could your website performance be dramatically improved? If you answered yes to any of those questions, the answer is yes.
Q. Will you setup Google Analytics and connect my site to Google Webmaster tools so I have full tracking in place?
A. Yes! A crucial aspect to your website build will be the setup of Google Analytics and Webmaster Tools. These will be setup, goals mapped and integrated prior to going live with your site.
