I have no idea about this website thing, how does it work?
Thats what I’m here for, I’ll guide you through my proven process, check it out here. I am here to help every step of the way.
How much does it cost to build a website?
It depends on a number of different factors and the needs of your business. Each project is different, just the same as every business is different. Our projects usually start at $1500 for a basic website.
How long does it take to build a website?
Depending on your project, it usually takes between 4 – 10 weeks. This includes your consultation, research, design, developing and testing.
Websites with a shopping cart (e-commerce) tend to take longer (6 weeks ish) as there is a lot more involved in the setup. Products also need to be loaded with descriptions and images but the time spent on this will depend on how many you have.
Do I need to provide images for my website?
If you have particular graphics or photos of your business then yes. However, I can source images to use throughout your website design.
Do I need to write my own content?
Not necessarily. I can create your content so that it includes keywords specific to your industry so that search engines are able to find your website easily.
Do you provide training on how to use my website?
Yes, definitely! I will show you how to use your WordPress website.
What platform will my website be built on?
I use WordPress to design your website. WordPress websites are the easiest and most powerful blogging and website content management system (or CMS) in existence today. I love it!
What’s involved in a consultation?
I like to visit my clients, it allows me to get to know your business and get a feel of what you are all about.
If you live on the Central Coast, Newcastle, Lake Macquarie or the Hunter then I can possibly come and visit your place of business and over a cuppa we can have a chat about your project. However, if you would prefer me not to visit then that’s ok too, we can always talk on the phone, video call or over email.
How does the payment process work?
After the agreement between us has been signed then a 50% deposit of the total cost will be invoiced at the start of your project. After that the remainder will be due in 2 seperate instalments.
What method of payment do you accept?
I accept direct Bank deposit or payment by credit card.
Are there any ongoing fees?
Yes. You will need to pay for hosting for your website, this can be done on a monthly basis to keep it affordable.
You will need to renew your domain name every couple of years depending on where you purchased it from.
If you would like me to manage your website and keep it updated on a regular basis then an affordable monthly fee (depending on the work you want doing) will apply. This will be discussed at the face to face consultation.
