There are a few reasons:
I work from home, so business overheads are at a minimum.
I am Auckland-based, and while I am happy to meet with local clients, communication via phone and email is usually all that is required to generate great results. This saves us both time and money.
I use smart template software to give a clean, stylish and professional look to my web designs.
As I do not write code from scratch, you do not have to pay for this time. The templates are very flexible for layout, colour schemes and content. As long as we stay within the confines of this, the price will stay down.
I genuinely want your business to succeed. If you succeed, I succeed.
I cringe at some ‘cheap’ websites out there, but appreciate that for many businesses, this is what they can afford. I want to help give small businesses a step up, by looking smart and professional right from the start, without needing a huge amount of cash to invest. After your website is live, we can continue to make edits as needed. It is very important to keep your website up to date, and fresh – ensuring that things like products/services, prices, and contact details are always correct for your customers.
Depending on what hosting and platform options have been chosen, it is possible to edit the website yourself.
For more complex updates and changes, I am available to help and work to an hourly rate (or agreed maintenance fee for larger and ongoing updates).
There are three main ongoing costs to keep your website live on the internet:
Every website on the Internet needs to be ‘hosted’ on a server somewhere. It’s like paying a monthly ‘rent’ for your website to ‘live’ on the internet. Without it, your site would not exist. Costs can vary depending on the needs of your business, but for the majority of my clients, my preferred supplier charges NZ$25/month (incl. GST).
Domain Name Registration:
Each year, your domain name (web address) will require renewal. This will be approx. NZ$18-25
Depending on what is required, on-going maintenance can be included in your contract or not. Let's chat about your requirements and go from there.
For straight forward websites, I have a timeframe of approx 1 week. I will create a series of test sites for you to view and give feedback on. Once you are happy with the final version, this will be copied and made available to your domain.
For more complex websites, the timeframe is discussed between you and I, and will have a series of milestones that we will aim for as the website is created.
