We build websites that get results

If you’re running a business, then you probably don’t actually want a website — you want the results for your business that a website can bring.

Whether you are focused on increasing awareness of your brand, generating more and better leads, or driving sales — we can help.

A lot of web developers make websites that look pretty, but don’t pay enough attention to the outcomes you’re looking for.

We can do “pretty” – but we know that what you want, and need, are results.

Why Choose Us?

Our focus when we work with you is to make sure we deliver you the outcomes you’re looking for — because if we make you successful, we’ll be successful too.

We provide an end-to-end web development service including:

  • Web Design

  • Content writing
  • Search Engine Optimisation
  • Website Analytics
  • Managed Website hosting

We aim to build a long-term relationship with all our customers. We want you to know you can rely on us to be there whenever you need our help. That could be every week, every month, or just once or twice a year.



Common Questions

How long does it take to build a website?

We typically allow between 4-12 weeks to build a website from scratch, although larger sites can take up to 6-8 months.

Factors that affect the development time include:

  • the complexity of the site you need
  • how quickly you supply all the assets (branding, design, content)
  • how responsive you are when we ask for input or feedback

That said - we can also turn around a website within a month if we have everything we need on day one and you are motivated to get the site launched quickly.

It's worth noting that content writing is usually the biggest hold up. A lot of our customers start out wanting to write their own content but soon realise that it's not as easy as they think. For that reason, we normally recommend that you get us to write your content for you.

Will I be able to change the content in my website?

Yes. We design all of the sites that we build to be easy to manage, and can provide training so you know how to update your website yourself.

I’m not very technical. Can you manage my website once it’s finished?

Yes we can. We offer Website Care Plans where we manage your website for you. This can range from making small content changes from time to time, through to full Search Engine Optimisation services.

Do I need to pay for any plugins in my website?

Plugins provide a way to extend the core functionality that WordPress offers. There are many free plugins available from the WordPress repository.

Where we can, we try to use free plugins when building websites. Sometimes, the best option is to use a premium plugin - i.e. a plugin that requires a monthly or annual fee, either because there are no free plugins that meet your requirement, or because the free plugins don't offer all the features you need.

Our approach to premium plugins is threefold:

  1. We have existing licenses for a number of premium plugins that we include at no charge as long as we are hosting your website. An example is SEO Press Pro which normally costs US$49 per year.
  2. We have other licenses that we will charge a nominal fee for (i.e. less than the going rate for that plugin). An example is Amelia Booking, an appointment and event booking system, which normally costs US$79 per year.
  3. If we don't already have a premium plugin with the functionality you need, we will recommend and purchase an appropriate plugin on your behalf. We will then on charge it to you at cost. We do it this way because it means we have direct access to support from the plugin developers, but the plugin license belongs to you.
How much does a website cost?

You probably won't be surprised to hear us say this - it depends. Websites can be as small as one page, or as big as hundreds or even thousands of pages, and the price can vary just as much.

To simplify things, we've put together a set of packages that are typical of the websites we've built in the past. We find these cover the majority of our clients, although we can customise each package to meet your requirements.

Anyway - back to the question. We rarely build a website for less than $2,000+GST, but you should assume the starting price will be closer to $3,500+GST. From there, key factors driving the cost include:

  • Which features you want  your website to have
  • How detailed your brand guidelines are
  • Whether you need us to write the content for your website
  • How many page types you need (e.g. Services, Projects, etc)
I don’t have a logo or branding. Can you help?

Yes, we can prepare brand guidelines and a logo as part of the development of your new website. If you're just looking for branding but not a website, we can recommend you to a specialist in this area.

I’ve chosen a WordPress theme already. Can you use it?

To be honest - we prefer not to work with pre-built WordPress themes. They may look pretty but they are often poorly built, which makes them difficult to work with - which in turn makes it more expensive for you.

The approach we normally take is to figure out what it is that you like about the theme you've chosen, and then create a design that incorporates the elements you like into a new theme design.

Will my new website rank well in Google?

This will depend on a number of factors, many of which are out of our control.

We'll give you our honest opinion early on in the project so you know what to expect, but we won't make any promises we can't keep.

That said, we have a lot of experience in this area and will do what we can to ensure your new website has a good shot at ranking well for your chosen keywords and phrases "out of the box".

We can also provide an ongoing service where we work on your website to improve your rankings over time - talk to us if this is something you'd be interested in.

Can you write my web content for me?

Yes we can. Writing can be difficult at the best of times — writing content for websites is even more difficult because you have to write content that appeals to both your target audience and Google. We do this all the time - and we can do it for you too.

Do I need to provide my own photographs?

Good photos are the key to building a website with impact. It's fair to say that photos can make or break a website.

So, whilst it's always best when our customers provide their own images, we know how tough it can be to get good photos that work on the web.

To help you out, we can look for stock photos that fit your business. We can also recommend a professional photographer if you need one.

Can you train my team to manage my website?

Yes we can. We're happy to manage your website for you, but we're just as happy providing training you or your team in how to manage it. We normally do this via a Zoom call where you can record the session as a video that you can keep to watch later.

But this doesn't mean we walk away after the training - we remain on hand to help with the tricky stuff when you need us.
