Websites

Big business style on a small business budget.

In the last 20 years, websites have gone from utilitarian ugliness to overcomplicated design exercises to the cookie-cutter templates of today.

Through all of this I’ve tried to stand a little apart, combining my design skills with the technical knowledge I continue to acquire along the way, to produce websites that not only look good but stay up to date with the latest functionality options.

There’s a lot to consider.

A website has to be easy to navigate, the content must be logically presented and still be attractive, it needs to be mobile friendly, working on all sorts of screens and devices, and people have to be able to find it among your competitors.

There are also a range of different types of website for different applications. Brochure sites, eCommerce, events & bookings, blogs…

I help you to make the right choices now, saving you a lot of time and money later.

WordPress

For the last few years I have concentrated on building sites using WordPress. It allows me to deliver more for less cost and gives you ease of use for making your own updates if you wish to do so. Unless otherwise requested, WordPress is the platform I would build your site in.

Prices shown include login access to the CMS (Content Management System).

Add-ons or core features?

My quoted price will always include design, site creation, uploading to a server, basic SEO, Google Analytics and submission to Google for indexing with a sitemap.

I consider these items to be core features that should be built-in from the start, not extra charge add ons.

I will never outsource my work.

Almost every day I receive emails and phone calls from overseas web designers and developers telling me they’ve looked at my site and were impressed, and are excited to offer their services and look forward to a mutually beneficial arrangement where I outsource my work to them at a huge profit for me.

If you are one of these people looking at my site right now with an intention to contact me with such an offer, please don’t. I’m not interested in outsourcing my own job. I enjoy my work, this is what I do. Why would I want to pay someone else to do it for me?

If you are a prospective client looking at this site seeking assurance that the person you would be dealing with is the same person who would be doing your job, right here in Australia, supporting our own local economy, I offer you that assurance absolutely.
