We design and build stunning websites without the inflated web design costs of other agencies. And if you do manage to find a cheaper quote from a similar agency – send it on to us so we can beat them on price and service!
Websites can fast become one of the best ways to secure new leads or even produce new leads while you’re out of the office. Not every business has a dedicated sales team, and they rely on their websites doing the hard work, generating new leads and sales for them.
This is why it’s important to be online, and to make sure your website gives the relevant information to new visitors. We understand that this is crucial to any business and we will help you through the process.
So what should I be looking for when engaging a web designer or web design company? What should I be expecting to pay, and how do I avoid getting into difficulties once I’m established online?
1. How long has the Web Designer or Agency been in business?
It’s important to find out if your Web Design Agency has been around long enough to know what you need! Secondly, that they’re in it for the long haul. Your website will grow with your business so you want to make sure you engage with a company that will be there to support your needs for growth.
We’ve been in business for well over 5 years and in this time we’ve helped hundreds of new and existing businesses in Australia grow their online presence. With all this time in the industry comes experience, and this is something that’s shown in our work.
From expert advice to suggestions to keep your website performing at it’s best – to the fact we simply build great websites!
2. What should I expect to pay?
The question that’s usually the most pivotal when thinking of investing in a new marketing platform for your business. You’ll want to know what it will cost, any ongoing costs – and what’s a reasonable amount to pay. Web design quotes can vary wildly from agency to agency and can be a little hard to understand why one agency will quote $3000 – $5000 while another quotes $700 – $1400?
Most small business websites with 3-5 pages of content and image galleries, sliding images and detailed contact forms will cost around $1000+gst. We’ve built enough of these small start up sites to know the design time taken along with development requirements and launch costs. Put it simply – we charge for the time and labour taken to produce the website and not other factors.
Generally speaking, the more advanced the design requirements or the more pages you need for the initial launch, then the more expensive the website design will become.
We offer fixed price packages or we can tailor a quote to meet your specific needs. So you get only what you need without paying for additions you may not require.
We also quote upfront – we’ll advise you of the ongoing hosting/domain name/support costings so you know going into a new web design project what these cost yearly. Our website renewals for our starter websites are just $200+gst per year. This includes support, email accounts, hosting, domain name management and access to your CMS (Content Management System)
We don’t charge any monthly fees. Once you’ve paid your renewal for the upcoming year you’re good to go! And for only $200+gst that’s probably the best marketing spend for your business when compared to other mediums like Newspapers, Radio, Online Adverts, Flyers and more!
Sometimes it’s tempting to get a neighbour or a friend to help you out. What can look like a cheap way to get a website made for your business can quickly unravel. If your website looks unprofessional or simply doesn’t rank then you may not get any leads at all. And then if you do manage to find leads online – are they put off by the presentation or layout of your site? We help by making sure you look good online, at a price that’s affordable to all businesses in Australia.
3. Can you update the website content yourself?
You certainly can! With our Content Management Systems, once the website is live we send you some login details along with helpsheets and support you in getting used to your new website online. You’ll be able to change the text content and images within the pages, add in new images to your Galleries amongst a host of other features.
We’ll also support you if you have any difficulties using the Content Management System, we understand that not everyone loves using computers! So we make sure the systems in place are simple to use and won’t dominate your weekends when you just need to update a contact number or change your price lists online. And since your website is already online – any changes you make happen instantly – so you don’t need to pay out every time to change small details on your own website.
4. Keep it together
From Domain Name Registration to Email Accounts, through to Hosting and Support. Some design agencies request you host the site elsewhere and then purchase emails from another provider and even down to the domain name. That’s a lot of information to keep safe each year and a lot of different outlets and agencies to engage with should you run into any issues.
We can register your domain name on your behalf. We’ll add in your email accounts and manage your hosting, we’ll provide the Content Management System and we’ll do this all in one place. So all you have to remember is our number or email should you have any questions – keeping it simple so you can get on with running your business.
5. Are There Any Hidden fees? Additional Charges?
Not with us. While there are agencies and providers out there that will add to the design and build cost during a project, we quote upfront. We’ll detail all the inclusions to be designed and integrated into your new website. We’ll agree this with you prior to starting any work and as long as the scope of the project doesn’t change, then that price is what you pay. If you do decide during the design stage you’d like to add more pages or a new integration then we’ll discuss this with you prior to working on any new integrations. We don’t do hidden fees, and our yearly renewal charges are all included upfront in our initial proposal.
6. What do your websites look like? What will mine look like?
There’s no better way to check a design out than viewing past work – we’ve built hundreds of websites and with over 1000 individual projects completed we’ll have a relavant sample to show you. All web designs we create differ in design depending on the individual needs. We can show you samples of past and current work. All our websites are designed via proof and revision too. So if you’re not happy with the initial designs, we’ll take on board any feedback and design and revise until you’re happy. A lot of web design companies will simply take a brief and build the site they think you should have. We know that you deserve more and take your guidance, working closely with you during the design stage so we build the site you want. Your website, Your way.
