New Budget? New Website!

New Budget? New Website!

With the passing of the financial year, you’ve probably allocated your budget for the next. Or perhaps you’re still tinkering with your figures, and wondering where to place your money? Before you go dedicating ALL your dollars and cents, there’s one area in particular that we believe simply won’t fail you in terms of building your business and boosting revenue, and that’s your website and digital marketing.

Why allocate a budget to your website?

Where do we even start, guys? There are so many reasons you should invest in the digital side of your business. These stats show us exactly why if you’re not well represented online, then you’re not competing within your market.

  1. Responsive sites work across all devices (no more side scrolling, zooming and trying to read teeny tiny text). With mobile traffic responsible for over 50% of global market share, this is a must-have. Bottom line, get mobile friendly!
  2. 57% of users say they won’t recommend a business with a poorly designed website – nor will they use it themselves we can presume. An old outdated site is actually a hindrance to your business.

The good news? Whatever your budget (small or large) we can help stretch it as far as possible.

Smaller Budgets 

Web Support & Hosting

If you’re already in business with a functioning website, you might just be looking at investing in some support. Every website experiences it’s glitches. Hacking, server issues, email issues, and updates are all part of owning a website – they happen. If you want someone to call when you need assistance, updates and edits to your site, and someone to back up your info offsite, then a web maintenance plan could be right up your alley. These popular plans start at just $80 per month and we have three to choose from. See them here.

Site Healthcheck

Perhaps you just want someone to perform a site health check? A one-off service to ensure your site is actually working hard for your business? We can offer these for just $299 and our clients say they are well worth it. A website boost will look at your site speed, security, and ensure all of your updates have been applied to your site – so you’ll be firing on all cylinders!

To provide our clients with a fast solution for their website woes, we offer a one-off Website Boost – see what’s included here.

Larger Budgets

Site Redesign & Update

So many clients contact us with an existing website that requires an update. Some sites haven’t been updated in 3-5 years, and since we have a general rule of updating your website every three years to keep up with the digital market, and your competitors, it’s at this point we would recommend a remodel.

Remodelling your site means a fresh design without straying from your brand colours, unique characteristics or logo design. We are simply bringing your site upto 2018 standards with all the mod cons of a modern website.

Here we will address:

  • outdated design features
  • incorporate modern functionalities
  • ensure your site translates across all browsers and devices
  • add features such as a blog, booking tool, call to action functions
  • data catchment to ensure you can effectively market yourself
  • social media integration and more.

Custom Design New Website

We can create a high functioning, custom designed bespoke website just for you anywhere from $5000-$20000. It depends on what you need it to do for your business. A website should work for you as if it were your employee – one that works 24/7 and never sleeps! A website should smooth the contact process, booking process, purchase processes and provide a wealth of information on your business and services. These sorts of websites truly convey your brands messaging, and they sell your product because they are well thought out, well designed, and backed with SEO and other smart functions.

See some of the websites designed and developed by us here.
