ARE WE RIGHT FOR EACH OTHER?

JUST LIKE ANY in great RELATIONSHIP, WE NEED TO KNOW IF WE ARE RIGHT FOR EACH OTHER. IF YOU HAVE ALL THE RIGHT stuff then your new project is going to hit all the right notes.

YOU HAVE CLEAR GOALS

Things always go better when we know where we are heading. This means the journey will only be smooth if you know what you want to achieve. If it is still a little bit hazy, thats OK, just book a discovery session and I can help you flesh it out, or just write up a list of what you want to achieve and then we can get the ball rolling!

YOU HAVE PASSION

Building an audience online is hard work and it takes time. Passion is the fuel you need to keep going when all the chips are down and you feel like you’re smashing your head against a brick wall. If you’re not passionate about what you do, then you need to ask why...

YOU HAVE AN AUDIENCE

Building an audience through producing great content is the only way to generate new customers online. If you don’t already have an audience you should be prepared to build one. We can help you with that - it's what I do best, but we will need to be onboard, to help me help you!

YOU HAVE BUDGET

If you really want to knock one out of the park, you’re going to need to invest some hard earned cash. That’s just the way it is.I don’t work for equity in your start-up and I don’t cut corners. You don’t need to re-mortgage your house but you are going to need to treat this as an investment and if you do everything I tell you, you’ll get a positive return.

YOU'VE GOT RESOURCES TO COMPLETE THE PROJECT

Project momentum can slow to a crawl if you don't have time or resources to complete the project . If your schedule is full or if you're uncontactable, and we have to make a quick design decision everything will slow to a crawl and delay your project delivery and potentially others.

If you made it THis far, then we just might be right for each other.

THE PROCESS

  • The Brief

    I'll ask the right questions to uncover the truth about why you need a new website and exactly what it is you're trying to achieve. Some of these questions may seem a little uncomfortable. In fact, if it doesn't get a little awkward, then chances are I haven't done my job.

  • The Sitemap

    Once I have all the information I need, I'll build a visual sitemap so we can all get on the same page very quickly about what it is we're trying to communicate and the best way to structure the information.  We discuss how best to arrange the content so users can navigate the site easily.

  • The Wireframe

    Here's where we get to play around with where we are going to put everything on different pages of the site. There are no colors or images to get in the way, this is purely about how everything will be laid out. We decide how to structure the pages so that users can easily interact with the site.

  • The Prototype

    Now instead of trying to tell you what I intend to build and throwing a whole lot of technical terms around, at this point I'll build an interactive prototype in the browser to show you how my solution will work. With no attention to design at this stage, it's no michaelangelo, but the it's our roadmap for moving foward.

  • The Design

    The fun begins during the design stage because we get to play around with colors, fonts, layouts, and graphics to bring your interactive prototype to life to match your brand identity. 

  • The Delivery

    Finally, we go underground for a couple of weeks and make sure everything is plugged in and tested before deploying your shiny new website to your hosting server so you can show it off to the whole world.

FAQ

  • How much does a website cost?

    The cost of a website can vary depending on various factors, just like the cost of a house may vary depending on how many bedrooms it has; so it is difficult to estimate without more information. Some customers have budgets of $2-3K, others $700. Unlike many other developers I do accommodate for all budgets and project sizes, with websites starting $587 for a starter business or blogging site.

  • How long does it take to design and build a website?

    The time it takes to produce a website depends on the size and complexity of your site and the quality of content that you have ready to go. A starter site package will take a week if ALL your content is ready to go. A custom website typically takes around 2 - 4 weeks from beginning to end. When you decide to hire us, we will allocate you a timeframe for the project.

  • Do I need my own domain name and web hosting?

    You can BYO or we can include it in your package. Our managed WordPress hosting partners offer fantastically fast and secure Wordpress hosting with CDN option available. (which means it runs uber fast anywhere in the world!)

  • Will my website work on mobile devices?

    Yes it will. All the websites we design work on all devices. Depending on your requirements we can design and develop your site using responsive design so that the site is optimised for mobile devices.

  • What is a Content Management System?

    A Content Management System is a tool that allows you to maintain the pages of your website yourself, without the need for any technical skills. A CMS allows you to edit and add pages, images, products or blog entries to your website. No additional software is required – all you need is a web browser and an internet connection. We specialize in Wordpress (CMS) which powers more than 25% of the internet.

  • Do you provide training?

    Yes I provide all our clients with training on maintaining and using their website as part of handover. We also provide videos for you, so you can learn more about Wordpress.

  • Can you help me with Social Media and Email Marketing?

    We sure can. I specialize in developing a marketing strategy to suit your business and in our custom package provide an option for website and marketing performance reporting so you can adjust your site and content to achieve maximum impact.

  • What is Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)?

    Search Engine Optimisation is all about getting your website higher up in the search results on search engines such as Google. The higher up the results you are the more traffic (and customers) you’re likely to get. There are many aspects that go into achieving good SEO, and one of the most important is the copy (words) on your website. Focus on well written, keyword rich and appropriate content is the key. One thing which I unfortunately cannot guarantee (and nobody can) is to get you to the top of Google's listings. What I can do is make sure that your site is positioned with the best possible chance to climb as quickly as possible.

  • Do you write the content for my site?

    I don’t directly write your content, however if you need help with this I can put you in contact with a copywriter who specialises in writing for the web.

  • Can you design my logo?

    Yes I can! This is another of our specialities.

  • What is a domain name?

    A domain name is your address on the internet. Typically this would be something like yourcompany.com.au

  • What is web hosting?

    Web hosting is a service that allows your website to be viewed on the Internet. It’s basically a computer housed in a data centre that runs your website and email.

SWITCHED ON WEB DESIGN IS AN ETHICAL AGENCY

When I worked with Butterfly Space they really touched my heart. Alice and Josie's determination to help the local community suffering from malnutrition, disease, and poverty really put things in perspective - so I wanted to do everything I could to help. That's why 2.5% from every website I build goes to help the UK registered Charity Butterflyspacemalawi.com.
