Do you have a website but it is outdated? Or you would like a website and are just not sure how to get started?
Generally, my customers fall into two scenarios either a Revive of an existing site or a new site but they just have no idea where to get started.
Following that there are also the customers who have quite a bit of technical capability but just want to be shown how to run their site (or help with the initial setup so they can take it over) or there are those who have a very limited technical ability and just need someone to help them out.
Notice how I have not written anything about the industry, the genre, or the elements of the site. This is because, in the past 28years of building websites, I have not had any websites that fit into the one box.
It’s all about the business owner and how it’s going to work for them sure there are commonalities between sites…BUT
The pages, the design, all the specifics really come later down the track in the conversation, that is not the place to start and you are here on this page because you are looking around right?
All the specifics are determined after there is a discussion about what your website needs to do, how it’s going to be managed, and who is going to do that because the SOLUTION or the tool of having a website will have different requirements depending on YOUR business.
Things like: how long you have been in business? Where you are at right now? Where do you want to be in the future? What does the site need to do? Who is going to look after it? and what is working and what is not in your overall marketing how does youre website tie in?
I COULD just build you a site based on pages, price, and structure, but if none of the above things are considered it’s really a waste of time and money for both of us, I have a very common sense approach to the way I work and the people I work with, there is no point doing something if you dont need it.
Having a site has to SOLVE the reason why you are having it in the first place, no point in adding in all the bits if you don’t need them or missing out on a key element because its not in the “package” on offer.
However, in saying all of that, if you don’t know me…
I know it for myself, I don’t like it when I don’t know what I am up for and I don’t like to be “SOLD to” on a sales call, so I know the resistance and wariness with talking to someone about all this stuff and no doubt we both have been in those conversations when you have to be wary of what is being said. Let me just say, I am not up for that. I practice consented and ethical conversations without sales tactics. I don’t agree with them, I don’t practice them.
In order, to give you a bit of reassurance about me, I am sharing with you a bit of a ballpark and also a distinction of how I work which is a little different from many of web providers out there…
The WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS (initial stages) in my business follow this format:
- Broad discussion to get to know one another on a 20min call on Zoom or phone. NO OBLIGATION no direct sales unless you ask for it. If you have a site already we can take a look at that, and ask questions if there is something I can help you with during this call I will. If its a new site we can talk about what is involved and what you need help with. It is completely of course optional if you wish to continue working together. – Make a booking via my calendar for a 20min call>
- Depending on where you are at, I can give you an estimation of the work at this stage, and development and discussions can progress from here on out.
If you need help working out what exactly you need so that I can quote you may need to book in for a strategy session where we have anywhere from 1-4hours working together to give you clarity, framework, and strategy for moving forward. This allows you to organize content, do some research just work out what you need your site to do. This can result in a site structure plan, a white page of your site (a plan with no design) so you can work out what is happening on the pages and any functionality that needs to happen. This allows you to get a quote for the work from me, but also go to other providers if you wish to cause you can have clarity and knowledge about what you need and are comparing apples with apples rather than hoping you can get what you need but not understanding the requirements going in blind.
This is a paid service it can either be a separate fee, after which you can go away and get someone else to do your site or do it yourself, or if you definitely want to work together we can roll it into a development quote.
- My website developments include the standard consultation times in managing your project, a standard SEO strategy, and implementation of Google Analytics if not done already, design/usability principles, 1-year license for the Divi theme.
It does not include hosting or domain name fees. Also, I like to include small updates for the first month and check in to see that your Google is happening.Obviously, the price will vary on a bunch of variables within that framework plus if there is anything else you need like eccomerce, payments from your site, forms etc all impact this. Perhaps you would like to be supported for the first year after your site is live. All of that we discuss when quoting and we can allow for future things now rather than having to go back to the drawing board when you are ready for your next stage / level.
Websites can start anywhere from around $880- inc GST
anywhere up to $3850- inc GST all depending on all the variables.
I offer different payment structures and packages if you wish to bundle this with a logo design, business cards, etc because I can do all of that as well.
Or if it’s a revision of the existing site perhaps you don’t need to start from scratch and you can go with one of my
>BULK RATE packages.
OR do we need to create just a setup structure where you get some training and do it all yourself?
Whilst browsing my site you may be looking for specific web prices to compare, I hope you can get that in working with me, I am working with you and it is tailored to you because you and your business are different from every other customer I have worked with in the past, so it starts with just a 20min discussion and working out what you need and go from there.
