Is This Service For Me?
You Want To Do It Yourself
You don’t just want a ‘done for you’ website that sits gathering dust for months because you are too afraid to break it. You want the confidence of having been a part of the build, so you understand how it works, how to keep it up to date and how to maintain it in the future.
Better Hiring & Outsourcing
As your business grows, you will be able to move beyond the micro management that was vital at the start and you will need to find great people to take your business to the next level. You’re hands-on experience will be invaluable, ensuring that you have the knowledge to ask the right questions, evaluate great work and make better decisions when hiring or outsourcing.
You Want Experienced Advice
We started this business after over 15 years designing custom websites for our clients. We have degrees in business, have started and funded several businesses, won funding through technology incubators and have poured over countless strategy plans. We don’t just bring our website design skills; we bring a powerhouse of business strategy acumen and a desire to support you to succeed.
You Are Looking For Cutting Edge Design
We love cutting edge design but it is a slow, intense and extremely involved process, that takes hours of research and experimentation to craft an exceptional piece of work. That investment of time comes at a price – if you want a completely custom-built website, this is not the service for you. Decide on the style you love, find a designer who excels in that design ethos and have a generous budget ready to go.
You Prefer To Delegate Tasks
This service is designed for people who want to get their hands dirty. If you prefer to command a team to help you fulfil your tasks and goals, then this is probably not the service for you, as you will need to be heavily involved in the process.
You Have The Time
Everything is a time vs money trade off. If you don’t have much money but you do have time and enthusiasm, it is a fantastic investment that not only produces a website but also the dividend of a skill and knowledge that you will have for a lifetime. You won’t need to run to a web developer every time you need a little change, want to change direction or run into trouble – you will have learned how to do it yourself.
You still want it to look professional and beautiful!
You never get a second chance to make a first impression – this has never been as true as with websites today. Potential clients evaluate your website in under 3 seconds – if they are not intrigued in that time, they quickly bounce back to Google and try the next option on their endless list of options. Great targeted design stops this from happening – that is where we come in!
You don't have the time
Learning how to build and maintain a website yourself takes time and there is an opportunity cost to time. If you are not motivated to learn then you will drag your heels and be frustrated with the build and maintenance issues that inevitably arise. You will likely come to the conclusion that it would be better to outsource the project after many hours of frustration, multiplying your costs in the long run.
You Want Your Website To Grow With You
No business survives its first exposure to clients… it either adjusts course or dies. You need to be able to quickly make those little changes that come from listening to great clients, so your service continues to evolve. Wordpress is incredibly adaptable and can incorporate almost any functionality, from events to e-commerce and membership. When you are ready to grow, your website is ready to grow with you, and we are here if and when you need a professional hand.

Up to 10 page website
You can always grow your one page website organically over time but, if you need a full website straight away, upgrade to an up to 10 page website.

We also create a custom page template so you will have this template as the base for adding as many new pages as you want in the future.
