Ask yourself these questions:
If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions then you will begin to see the potential benefits in having a web-site for your business. There are other possible reasons - please contact us to discuss your individual situation.
The cost of web sites ranges from a few hundred dollars upwards (not very informative but true!). As a guide, think of your costs in these categories:
Yes, all prices given on this site include GST (Australian Goods and Services Tax) at 10%. Clients outside Australia will not need to pay this and should divide all figures by 1.1 for the GST-free price.
No. For design work we invoice you only when the web site (or an agreed part of it) is completed to your satisfaction. For domain registration the price shown is payable at the beginning of the registration period; nothing further is payable until the next renewal. However no refunds are available on domain registration. For hosting we ask you to pay 3, 6 or 12 months in advance, with the monthly rate discounted for longer periods. There are no setup fees and you can change plans at any time without charge - paying just the difference in cost between plans calculated pro-rata for the period of time remaining. Finally, if you decide to cancel your hosting we will charge pro-rata for the time used and refund the remainder.
Remember, we will provide a free, fixed-price quotation for everything you need to set up and maintain your web site. Please contact us for your free quote.
If you want to save money by creating the site content yourself, but don't want to learn all the technicalities of creating your own site, we can set up a skeleton web site using a content management system (CMS). This will look after the site design, while you enter the content for all pages using only your web browser. You can choose a standard template or we can create a new one especially for you.
Take a look at other web-sites created by your candidates. Are they professional and in a style compatible with your company? Compare prices - they vary enormously, and more expensive doesn't always mean better. Most important - discuss your ambitions for the site and ask what they will do to help you achieve them.
