Building on WordPress is a bit like building on a block of land with no zoning, height, or council restrictions – you can build whatever you want and whatever your budget allows. And you OWN the site, you’re not leasing it from a provider.
It’s the perfect platform for a starter website, or for a small website because the possibilities are endless. You’re not locked into certain functionalities, or facing a huge cost to add them in down the track.
It is SEO-friendly, infinitely scaleable, user-friendly (especially with a few video guides) and empowers small businesses to manage your online presence
Your site will be unique to your business, not just an over-used theme with colours changed.
It will be divided into 5 main sections:
- Intro – tell your clients how you help them
- USPs – what makes you the best choice
- About – a bit of background to reassure your customers that you’re real, and good at what you do
- Services – what do you actually offer, your service packages kind of thing
- Contact – We will add your social media links, and can add a google map reference if you need, plus all the usual contact info.
Absolutely! I will provide a website owners manual, and video tutorials on how to update bits and pieces of your site – tailored to what you need.
You get to sit back and celebrate a bit, make sure you share it around. Building your SEO takes a bit of time, but it’s one of those great slow-burn things that are worth the patience and commitment.
This package includes 6 months of website maintenance (value $300), so you don’t need to worry about your sites’ security or plugins.
If you want more work done, I offer special existing client rates for half and full dedicated design-y days.
Yep, but they are pretty minimal and I will do my best to keep them down.
Domain – You will need to purchase this if you don’t already have one. It’s important that this is purchased and registered under your business details, but I’ll be there to help you out and make sure you aren’t paying for things you don’t really need. This can be anywhere from $5-125/year (but probably closer to $10/year)
Hosting – This offer includes 12 months of hosting on Siteground (valued at $400). If you already have hosting, that’s ok but it won’t change the price of this offer – exisiting hosting can mean a little more work to set up the site, so it balances out.
Hosting is an ongoing cost of owning a website – it can range from $3 – $50 per month depending on inclusions. For example, some hosting will include an SSL certificate (the little lock next to your URL), daily backups, and other benefits, or you might opt for a private server (instead of a shared one) which is super speedy, super secure and… more expensive.
I’ll help you decide what to do when the time comes. Quality hosting is possibly the MOST important thing to make sure your website works as it should.
Emails – these are not included on my hosting plan.
I cannot emphasise strongly enough, the importance of having your emails hosted separately to your website. I will provide a couple of options for you to pick what works for you, and I’ll help set it all up (if you don’t have it set up already!)
Plugins – There may be additional costs for certain functionalities if you want anything special added – I will do my best to keep the costs down for these and use the free or my agency plans where possible, but this will simply come down to what you need your site to do.
I’m not about hiding costs to trick you, if something pops up unexpectedly, I will let you know and also let you know the options we have available.
