Improve your online presence
*Maintenance includes backup management as well as regular updating of back end systems after web development. This is offered to clients who opt for the landing page service as we host the site on our hosting server. This is an ongoing cost that includes updating your site content. Updating content can include updating of multimedia items like photos, icons, videos, and written materials in your site. This does not include creation of the content. If you wish to opt for maintenance with your Basic WordPress site, you will need to advise our team and provide access to your hosting. If you need separate services that are not included in these packages, you may purchase them individually by contacting our team for a quote.
2 Hour Consultation
We do this to understand your needs better. This is in-depth so we encourage clients to prepare. We will ask about your company and help define what is needed on your site. Check the “Preparing for Development” section.
WordPress is a content management system (CMS) for your website. This is not the same as the websites created on WordPress.com as those are hosted in the WordPress company servers. Instead, our team installs (into either our hosting or your provided hosting) a blank WordPress. This ensures we have control over your website completely. See the comparison here.
Images can bloat up a website if not properly uploaded and is one of the primary causes for a slow site. We ensure that your images are optimised to the smallest possible size without compromising your design.
Responsive means that it will change how it looks according to the device being used. Websites need to be responsive these days as many people are on mobile.
SSL (secure sockets layer) is basically your website security. When setting up a site, it defaults to HTTP and advises browsers that the site is not secure. Activating the SSL changes your site from HTTP to HTTPS and tells the browser that your site is secure.
WordPress needs a theme to create the design. We will choose the most suitable for your site.
We offer maintenance only to landing pages. Our team will maintain, backup, and update the website for a small monthly fee.
Child Theme Installation
We install the child theme as it is required for custom websites to prevent the layout from breaking. Clients don’t need to do anything!
Self-hosted means you are responsible for hosting your website. Hosting is the storage in which all your website files are stored. If you wish to understand more about how websites work, we’ve created a simple guide here.
A contact form is quite handy for websites as your clients can send you a message. We set this up for websites that have several pages.
cPanel Email Setup
Website hosting often comes with a cPanel area that has an option to create emails. We can set this up if it is available.
2 Hour Basic Web Training
For 5-page+ websites, we find it is easier to hand it over with some basic training and documentation. Once this is completed, the website is completely yours!
Need something different?
Send our team an email about your specific requirements and we can give you a more accurate quote for your web development project. If you need a more detailed quotation, we can itemize everything for you and provide a service summary to explain where your money is going. We charge you a Detailed Quotation fee for this, but we credit it back to your project once you give us the approval.
Preparing for Development
Look at your competitors and what they are doing. Make sure to look at what works well. Make sure to look at whether their site works well on mobile as well and let our team know what you find.
Why we ask you to look at your competitors
Your competitors are most likely already established and have an idea about their customers. This means that you can base your website design to something similar. We will do our own research as well but we encourage clients to understand that a website is a big commitment.
Make sure to have your brand clearly defined. This includes your colours, fonts, or even images or videos you may need. If this is not clear, we would need to do this first before starting any website development and it is a separate service.
Why this is important
Having your brand ready will allow our team to make a unified site from the very beginning with little adjustments at the end. Basically, it saves you a lot of time and money. It also makes production much quicker if the brand is already set. You can’t be website ready if your brand is not ready!
We will use stock footage and text that will not be applicable to your brand. These will all be replaced by the content that you provide our team so make sure that you are ready!
Writing content for clients
We can make graphic icons and make the framework of your website but we expect most clients to have their content. Writing content is specific to the client who usually has the best knowledge about their brand and/or product. It is also usually connected to your marketing. If you are uncomfortable with writing, we still encourage you to write and our team can proofread and enhance your content at a cost.
