Website Design

Not sure if you need a website? Well, let me save you the time thinking about it. The answer is YES. A website makes you appear professional & serious about your business and unlike social media, you own your website and it cannot be removed from you. 

Think of a website as digital premises. It is not just a brochure, it is a business tool – it can work for you, saving you and your customers lots of time and money.

Now we have that out of the way, you have two choices. You can DIY your website which is very achievable (learn more here about DIY websites) or you can find a designer to work with. This page will give you an insight into my style and skills and that will help you to see if I will be the right fit for your business.

I am currently booked out until October 2020

FAQ's

We have an initial chat where we discuss all your needs. If we are both happy that we are a good fit, then I will book you in.

I will send you a checklist of things I need in order to start the website build. (Think images, text, logo etc)

When I have received payment and all the assets then I will begin the first rough draft, which is really a design outline. 

I will send you a video of the rough draft, and you can approve or make changes/reject. 

Once we are happy with the layout/design I will begin the design.

Once the design is complete, I complete all the testing then send it to you for the final approval.

 

When you are ready to proceed. I take 50% upfront and 50% on the completion of the job.

I send you an invoice and you can pay by direct deposit or credit card.

Just like a mobile phone plan, your website needs to have a hosting plan attached to it. All my plans come with 6 months hosting at which stage you will need to extend your hosting with me or find another hosting provider. This can be as little as $60 per year.

You will also need to purchase a domain name which will be around $20 annually.

 

It will be very easy to make changes to the text, images will require a little more work. If you want to change the layout, this is achievable but will require a little bit of training. The same goes for adding pages. If you wish to add regular blog posts, this is very easy to update.

Yes, I will supply you with basic notes on how to make changes to your website and how to maintain it. This will be via a pdf and accompanied by a youtube video.

Provide me with a rough outline of what you would like (what pages and what you want your website to do)

Provide me a couple of examples of websites you like so I can get a feel for the website styles you are looking for.

Supply me with a logo

Supply me with any pictures, text, and colours you want to use on your website

That’s it to get started!

I can provide you with a basic logo (text-based, so, for example, the name of your business, or initials) which can be changed at any time in the future.

I am a member of the Australian Website Association. I have been building websites for the past two years and I am part of an extensive network of website designers, developers and administrators.

I also hold two degrees, a MBA (the University of Technology in Sydney) and a degree in Marketing  (University of Western Sydney)

I am proficient in Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign) and have experience in many website platforms, WordPress, Shopify, Big Commerce to name a few.

I also have worked with html, css, javascript, PHP.

It depends on which package you choose. Allow at least one week for the basic and entry websites. 2 weeks for the 5 page website and for custom websites, depending on the complexity of the website, will depend on the time frame. I will supply you with my expected time frame when quoting on the build.

Yes. I also teach people how to build their own websites. Please look at my “learn” section which has lots of free options including courses and memberships. I also do one on one tutorials.

I have a comprehensive portfolio that you can view here

I will send you a list of requirements when the project begins. It will include images, texts and a logo as a bare minimum.
