Frequently asked questions
We have over 20 years of experience in creating custom websites and software development. In that time we have been through hundreds of projects creating a bank of knowledge and experience that we are more than happy to share with you to make your project come to life.
Every project is unique of course, that is why we are not tied to any particular system, we work across platforms to give us the ability to develop the project outcome you need.
Here’s what people ask us the most.
How much does a website cost?
It always depends on what you want it to achieve, there are low budget solutions that are really effective, but website development is like any other commodity in that you get what you pay for. Low cost options have limitations and high cost solutions are not a magic wand, so what we will help you find is the solution that offers you the best value for money.
What is e-commerce
Ecommerce, also known as electronic commerce or internet commerce, refers to the buying and selling of goods or services using the internet, and the transfer of money and data to execute these transactions. Ecommerce is often used to refer to the sale of physical products online, but it can also describe any kind of commercial transaction that is facilitated through the internet.
What is brand development
It’s much more than your logo and website. Brand development is the continuous process of defining, refining, and testing your overall brand strategy. It’s the foundation for your company’s go-to-market approach and long-term winning strategy. From brand values to design to marketing assets, brand development is the process to get you there.
What platforms do you work in
We work in the platform you need for your project. We don't force our way on to you - we establish which platform best suits your needs then build in that one! We are agile and this enables us to create bespoke teams to work on your needs, not ours.
Can you integrate my site with POS or accounting software
Yes - be it Xero, or Infusion or any other accounting or POS system we can integrate your website.
If you are using a hosted solution it may require using pre-built options and flexibility is limited, but if you have a custom solution then integration is no problem.
What training do you provide
We support you with as much training as you need on managing your website or software.
We are always available to talk you through any issues and can create manuals and videos for reference if required.
What if it goes wrong
If there's an issue we fix it as the priority then we find out why the issue arose. We always work in good faith and we are going to assume you do too!
Can you help with funding
We can't guarantee that funding will be available but we are a registered service provider for the Regional Business Partner Network so we can help you apply for certain funds.
We will also help you look for funding if you have a great idea but can't quite get it over the line because of money - if you need help please ask, we'll do our best to support you.
What is custom design
Custom design is when we create something just for you. There are lots of themes available these days but not many of them if any, will be an exact fit to your specific needs.
Custom design means we create the system to fit your needs, you don't need to change how you work to fit the system that way.
Do you work with agencies
Yes - often! We do a lot of "white label" work where our team is the builder while the agency runs the project.
We can also work with designers to apply brand material and style websites according to their requirements.
How do I get the right photographs
Work with a photographer is the best idea if you have the budget, and it needn't be expensive.
Talk to us about what you have available and we can point you in the right direction. For websites you don't need high resolution images - the orientation is more important than the actual size - and don't forget to name your photos, search engines don't know what is in a photo named DSC12121211221!
There are some great online resources like www.pixabay.com that have some great images that are royalty free.
Do you help with SEO
All of our websites are SEO optimised - but search engine optimisation is never finished, just as your mobile won't ring if nobody knows your number, you need to promote your website to get the best results.
How much is hosting
Our hosting starts at $60 per month - we only host our websites though, so you are safe from being located next door to unsavoury elements!
What is content management
Content management is the means by which you update your website. It is also the way to make sure the right content is on your website, content creation is a different story - literally! You need to make sure you have a good content strategy to ensure you engage effectively with your audience.
Can I make my own website?
Don't know, can you?
