Frequently Asked Questions
Can I just ring and have a chat?
If we talk on the phone, I’m going to ask you all of the questions in the quote form. It’s better to fill in the form, and this will give me a clear picture of what you need. Then I’d love to chat on the phone to clarify what you need, and see if we’re the right fit for each other.
I don't want to spend much money, I just want a simple site.
If your budget is under $1,500 I can use a template, (I have a library of great templates) and I upload your text and images to the design layout. This will give you an online presence which will include a contact form, but no extras e.g. sign up forms, social media integration, SEO plugins, or custom design.
I don't live near you, how do we do this?
I often have remote clients, and with modern technology it’s easy to go through the creative process via skype or google hangouts. If you’re not savvy with these, I’ll step you through.
How much for a site designed with all the extras?
Fill in the quote form and I’ll get back to you. My prices reflect my quality of work, but I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised how competitive my rates are.
What happens if I don't like the design?
This never happens:) I make sure I have a very clear understanding of your branding: fonts and colours, images you want to use, (whether you or I supply them), and text (copy) that you want on your site. I’ll share a layout design for each page, showing where text and copy will go. We will have looked at several sites together, so I know what ‘style’ you are looking for: e.g. playful, contemporary, folksy, minimalist, bold, colourful. Once you’ve signed off that everthing is as you wish, I’ll then build your site. My motto? Careful planning, so no surprises!
My site is a brand new one. Can you help me with setting up the domain and hosting?
I'm not very good at writing. Can you write the copy for my site?
I’m happy to write the copy for your site. Make sure you tick the relevant box in the quote form.
want to make your own changes to your website?
I can train you in how to do this.
want me to look after your site and keep everything updated?
Updating WordPress, your theme and plugins regularly is important to keep your site secure. I have a monthly fee if you’d like me to do this for you or I can show you how.
help! I've done something to my site!
Once you are a client, I will be there to sort out any issues. I charge an hourly fee for this.
I want to rank on the first page of google
There is no magic wand to make this happen. It requires ongoing work with SEO. (Search Engine Optimisation) I offer SEO services of another company at a competitive monthly rate.
Are you ready to start?
I SURE AM!
