Website design & development

We know, we know! Getting a new website
is a Pain. In. The. Butt. Right? 

You don’t know where to start. You don’t know what you need.
And you don’t know what you don’t know.

We pride ourselves on making the
website design process easy 
for our clients.

We’ve been in the game for more than 10 years and have developed
rock-solid systems and processes that save our clients time, money
and, most importantly, mental energy.

Our most popular website design package starts at $6,500. If your budget is slightly less, get in touch anyway. We may be able to tailor something to suit.

We've built hundreds of sites so we know the typical pitfalls of website design. Over the years we have refined our website design and build processes to endure that you get the best online solution in the quickest time frame possible.

1. Discovery

We gather information from you (via our briefing form and in-person meetings) about who you are, what you're about, what makes you different, who you want to reach and what you need your website to communicate.

2. Scoping

Based on what you’ve told us you need plus our own knowledge of how to best achieve your stated goals and brand objectives, we scope up your job. This step includes visualising the sites UX (user experience), wireframes that show how we believe the website needs to be structured, how pages will interact with each other and also gives an idea of the proposed user interface.

3. Consultation

We go over the website scope with you to ensure that all your design and functionality requirements have been met and that expectations are well-defined for both you and us.

4. Design

This is the stage where the website wireframes come to life. We are always aware that it’s not just good enough to design a beautiful website – your new website must inspire action and support your branding too. We consult with you closely throughout this state to ensure you absolutely love the look and feel of your website before proceeding to the next stage.

5. Build

Using the industry standard CMS platform WordPress, we then build a fully responsive website that incorporates both the beautiful designs we have created for you, and also all required functionality. This stage is exciting because at this point the website comes alive and is interactive.

6. Content Population

Once the site is built, we then insert your content (words and images) you provide. We are also available to assist with producing the content for your website if required.

7. User Testing

Once the site is designed and built, we work through it page by page and test that everything works exactly as expected.

8. Publication

Once you give us your final approval, we move your site from our development server to the live environment and your site is now live!

9. Training

Now that you have your shiny new website you’ll also teach you how to use it. We provide you with an hour of in-house training along with a comprehensive and customised user manual for your website.

10. Ongoing support

Our support doesn’t stop once the site goes live. While it’s not a compulsory part of our website design packages, we are able to provide you with a fully managed hosting and support plan to ensure your website is kept up to date, secure, and that important data is being tracked and reported on. We can advise how to best position your brand for the digital age. This will help you refine and tailor your website to get the most out of your online presence.

11. Here to help

It is always important to tweak and test better ways to do things as your site evolves based on user requirements and overall conversion rates. Taking advantage of our ongoing support makes this an easy process and ensures that getting advice and support from the experts is only a call or email away.

With a beautiful website, your businesses brand and image is on display in the best possible way to the world. But unless you can get the attention of your ideal customers and get them over to your website, how do you know your ROI? How do you keep up with all the changes and new ways of reaching your customers?

1. Digital Marketing Strategy

Should I be on Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram...? Do I need to do SEO, SEM, FB Ads? Whether you're new to all this online stuff or not, it can all be very overwhelming. We will work with you and what your primary business goals are to come up with a targeted and action oriented Digital Marketing Strategy that defines a clear roadmap and return on investment.

2. Customer Avatar and Profiling

We gather information from you (via our briefing form and in-person meetings) about who your current and or ideal clients and customers are, what they're about, and where they "hang out". We'll also gather insights into your current customer data and perform an analysis of your competitions data to ensure your marketing efforts are laser focused and you're not wasting time or money.

3. Social Media Marketing

Your customers are increasingly moving online, onto mobile, and it's getting harder to reach them with your products and services. With our Digital Marketing Strategy in place, determining the best social media marketing outlets and approach will ensure you are reaching the right customers, in the right place, at the right time.

4. Paid Advertising and Acquisition

With the noise and competition online increasing at a rapid pace, advertising to reach your customers is a way to better your competition and in some markets, mandatory to survive. If you are a new business, paid acquisition can be an amazingly successful way to scale your business fast. We'll define an SEM and Paid Traffic and Retargeting Strategy to provide you with perpetual leads and sales into your business using Google Adwords, Facebook Ads, and more.

5. Content Marketing and Copywriting

Creating ongoing, targeted, and consistent content is the best way to grow a sustainable and long term business online. But it's hard! We take all the heavy lifting out of this for you by writing your content and "splintering" this content across each of the online channels to ensure your brand is reaching as many possible customers wherever they are.

6. Market and Competitor Research

With an amazing amount of data available online, it's possible to really dive deep into your market and competitors to find out where they are getting their customers and what you can do to get in front of them instead. We use powerful tools and insights to analyse this data add dynamically to your Digital Marketing Strategy.

7. Detailed Tracking and ROI Reporting

What gets measured, gets managed and when it comes to the overwhelming amounts of datapoints and channels available online, it's important to know what to look for, where, and how to interpret it all. We provide regular reports without all the techno jargon, just simple business metrics that show how well your digital marketing efforts are doing and what areas we can focus on to improve.
