You need more than "just a website". You need an online platform that sells. Your business, your products, your services.
Premium WordPress Website Design for Business & Online Stores
You know that having a website for your business is essential in today’s world. After all, it’s the home of your business online. It’s often a potential customer or client’s first impression of you and your business, so of course you want it to be awesome.
It’s not enough to just have a Facebook page or other social media accounts. If the social media platform disappears (which, let’s face it, happens sometimes), you lose all the hard work and content you put into it. Whereas you own your website and therefore have more control. Ready to jump in?

HOW IT WORKS
In the discovery phase, we'll spend time learning more about your business and brand, goals, and target market. A strategy will then be set up.
Once the strategy has been developed and the content has been received, the development and design work begins. You'll be kept updated often.
After your final approval and some last checks to make sure everything is working perfectly, it’s time to go live. Cue excitement and champagne (or coffee)!
The work is never truly complete. Your website should continue to evolve along with your business, so keeping it updated and growing is vital.
YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED
There is no “one size fits all” approach when it comes to the development and design of a new website. Some agencies and freelancers have set rates, but the ethical approach is in taking the time to understand your business ecosystem, goals, and what success looks like for you. Once everything has been taken into account, only then can an accurate amount be quoted.
There’s no point in having a generic website that doesn’t do what you need and want it to. I believe that your online platform is an investment in your business, that should, ultimately, pay for itself as quickly as possible.
A 50% deposit is required on starting the project. 30% will be payable once the final project design has been approved by you, but before the final checks to prepare your shiny new website for it’s grand entrance to the online world. When the balance of the remaining 20% has been paid, your website will go live.
I’ve found that this system works well for everyone involved. 🙂
This is dependent on a number of factors such as the type of website required (simple one-page, ecommerce, etc), and the scale of the project. It typically ranges between 4-8 weeks, but once I know what you’re looking for, I’ll be better able to let you know the time frame for the work.
Please note that the time is also dependent on the co-operation of the client. If the content for the website is ready and available as and when I need it, and the delays in communication and approval at different stages of the project are minimized, this will ensure faster turn around times.
WordPress is the dominant website platform, and for good reason. It’s flexible and powerful, and ideal for small-to-medium-sized businesses.
Using this platform, your website can grow along with your business. This will allow you to have an unlimited number of pages, and is perfect for growing and maintaining a blog (which is excellent for SEO). It’s also easy to keep your website updated yourself and make changes.

Your new website will be built and set up with SEO (Search Engine Optimization) best practices. The key elements of SEO will be integrated from the start in order to ensure that your website gets indexed as quickly as possible, and set up to capture traffic.
Initial keyword research will be done in order to get your descriptions, titles, and other important information to be visible to Google.
It’s a solid start, but in order to get maximum exposure on Google (and other search engines), SEO is an ongoing process. For this reason, I offer monthly SEO as either a standalone service for more comprehensive SEO, or as part of the “Grow” website care plan.
You would have to provide the content you’d like to use. When we start working together, you will receive a welcome package that outlines the type of content required (as well as tips for how to create it and best practices), and any additional content as discussed in the discovery session.
If you’re just starting out and would prefer to outsource this, I also offer copywriting services.
Yes! I offer initial WordPress training as part of the web design package if needed. This will provide you with the tools to be able to add and manage posts, comments, media, etc.
If you sign up for one of the website care plans, you’ll receive priority support and can rest assured that your website is in good hands.
Any big additional changes to the website (such as adding new pages, changing layouts, colours, etc) will be charged accordingly.
