Why Do I need a website for my business?
A website is a 24/7 marketing machine
Your website keeps working for you day and night so your customers can access information when they want and you get leads for your business while you work or sleep.
Future proof your business
When economic times are good, businesses naturally have a good flow of customers. However, a search engine optimised website will make your business resilient when times get tough, ensuring you remain highly visible to customers who still need your business and widening your customer reach.
It can help you beat the big guys
Some of your big competitors will have massive marketing budgets, but that doesn’t mean you can’t compete with them. Our websites are built on the same platform as huge companies like Vogue and PlayStation. Lots of small businesses have been known to outrank their competitors with the right website.
People can find you on Google
It’s a fact that most consumers these days will do some online research before buying a product or service and if you have a website, you can make sure you’re in front of them when they do.
FACT: A website is one of the most effective ways to not only get your business found but also noticed.
Your competitors have one
Most customers go online to research when they want to find a product or service. If you don’t have a website, there is a good chance that customer is going to one of your competitors who does.
We live in the age of now
People want the information they need immediately and a website can provide everything they need at their fingertips and in seconds (even when your business is closed). You can also use your website to answer your customers frequently asked questions and save time getting them the information they need.
You control the narrative
Get your message, services and products in front of your ideal customers the way you want it to, unlike social media platforms and review sites where you have no control over what people might say about your business.
You own your website
Unlike social media accounts and some website platforms, we build you a website where you control the domain name and website files. This means you own the website and content, can take it with you if you rebrand/move your business or can even sell it with your business down track.
It adds credibility and trust
If your business doesn’t have a website, chances are your losing customers. It instantly boosts your credibility as a legitimate and professional business and these days your customers expect it.
FACT: 48% of customers will stop considering a business if it doesn’t have a website.
A professional web design is more affordable then traditional advertising
Reach thousands more customers than local advertising, mail drops and even expensive adverts on tv and radio, all without any effort. While you have to keep paying big dollars for traditional advertising, once your website is set up there is minimal cost to keep it running and up to date.
Showcase ALL your services
In your print advertising you may be able to fit some of what you do but you’re limited in characters and space. With your own website, you can dedicate as much space and even whole pages to your services as you like. Highlight your portfolio of previous work, show your expert knowledge with articles containing handy tips, go into detail on your services, and showcase your unique selling points.
These days most customers are looking at online reviews to help with their buying decisions. While review sites are helpful, your website allows you to really showcase some great customer testimonials and influence potential customers.
FACT: 67% of customers won’t consider a business with unfavourable online reviews.

Designing good UX
Website User Experience
User experience or UX is a focus point when our web design team is building websites. We’ve all been to a site with bad user experience and it’s frustrating. We want to make sure your customers can find what they are looking for with good structure and navigation, engaging content, responsive web design and quick load times among other things.

Mobile friendly websites
Responsive Web Design
Is your website optimised to be mobile friendly? Part of the User Experience that Google and other search engines use to rank websites is looking at whether they are responsive. In fact, in 2016 Google introduced a ‘mobile-first’ policy where they penalise websites that aren’t mobile friendly by ranking them lower in search engine results. Further, in 2018 they revealed they would be using mobile-first indexing which means they are looking at mobile content, rather than desktop to present information to their consumers.
Since most websites are now viewed on mobile devices, it is essential that your website is set out and coded with a mobile website design so it always looks good and is functional for the user. This is why it’s so important that a responsive website design been used that will ensure optimal viewing experience across all styles of devices – desktops, laptops, tablets and mobile devices.
cONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
WordPress Website Design
As the industry standard, our team use WordPress to design all of our websites. WordPress sites are not only visually appealing, but they have superior functionality, security, SEO and customisation compared with other platforms.

Why Choose WordPress for your business website design?
A question that is commonly asked is: Why should I use WordPress? Our customers want to know: What is wrong with their old site? And why we want them to switch from another platform? There is lots of website builder platforms out there and some of them are so easy you can build a site yourself. So, what makes WordPress websites so superior?
You own your website
With other website builder platforms, you don’t have full ownership of your site and content. You are technically renting your site from these companies, which means, when you stop paying, your site is essentially gone. The beauty of WordPress.org is you own the files for your website and can move them around between hosts, which might mean better value or performance or even sell the website as you choose.
WordPress is written using high quality code which means it tends to rank higher in search engines than other platforms. Not only that, but with in-built SEO features as standard, as well as ability to upload dozens of media forms from photos to videos, you can see why search engines just love websites built on WordPress.
As we mentioned above, Google ranks sites that are not mobile friendly lower in their search results. With WordPress, the themes we use are automatically responsive so they can be read beautifully and navigated easily whether your customers are on their mobile, desktop or tablet.
Safe and Secure
WordPress has security as a priority and is considered to be a safe platform for websites. Unfortunately, hackers are a reality of the online world, but with the use of additional WordPress plugins for security and backups, we can ensure your site is as safe as possible and that we have recovery options if needed.
84% of customers want a trustworthy website.
All of our websites come with an SSL certificate (the padlock beside the URL that ensures secure transactions) and Google is looking for websites that have this too.
With other platforms, functionality is often built in and limited (which is what makes it so easy for those without website design skills to use), but with WordPress we can expand your site with dozens of plugins, coding and customisation to do some really cool stuff. Everything from booking or invoicing to automate your business, to social media integration and contact forms to ensure your customers can stay in contact. This not only ensures it suits your needs, but provides your customers with a great user experience.
89% of customers say they want a website that’s easy to navigate so functionality is super important.
Perfect for all types of sites
While WordPress started out as a blogging platform and is still superior in its blogging capabilities, it has evolved over the years to integrate so much more and become what we think is the most powerful website builder and content management system (CMS) available. The best thing about WordPress is it has the flexibility to suit all types of websites and can be customised to suit your businesses with its 54,000 available plugins.
It’s the industry standard
According to WordPress, 35% of the web uses their platform to build their website. From Disney to Sony, Facebook to Time Magazine, there is a long list of BIG companies that all use WordPress for their sites.
Superior Blogging Functionality
From a simple one author blog page to having multiple contributors and scheduling posts, nothing compares to WordPress for blogs or articles and it’s no surprise considering it started out as a blogging platform.
