WordPress is used by 35% of world's sites. It's the go-to for professionals. While Wix and Squarespace can provide a good tool for non-techies, they are not as flexible as WordPress and also do not provide the same levels of performance. Here is a comparison of a Wix site that we re-created in WordPress. The load speed and number of requests are significantly less for the wordpress variant.
All of our sites are custom built to each client's specification. A basic web site (1 pager with supporting legal pages) starts at AU$1000. We then charge per page and functionality (some pages will be more some less depending on the level of complexity). A 5 page site will typically cost between AU$1800 and AU$2800.
No one knows the business better than the person running it, so we leave all written content and photos to the client to provide. However, we can offer some handy tips on content creation, which will save you time and make things much easier.
If you need help with writing content, design or photography, let us know and we’ll recommend someone who we trust.
The timescale of a website design project is often dictated by the client. If you have a deadline we will endeavour to meet it for you. Once we start working on your site it usually takes 4-6 weeks to build. This varies depending on how complex your site is and if you have everything ready to go (content being provided by clients is often the biggest hold up on sites being finished in time).
Domain name registration, hosting and maintenance are ongoing costs to be aware of. We can help you purchase a domain name which is usually requires an annual or bi-annual renewal.
WordPress websites require ongoing maintenance to keep the site information and software up-to-date. We have hosting and monthly maintenance packages starting at $AU20. We are happy to discuss your requirements.
