Website Development

 

Websites designed, developed and built, for individuals and businesses

Many people know their business needs a website, but don’t have the time, skills or knowledge to set it up or maintain it on their own. This is where I as a website designer/developer can step in and offer an affordable solution.

I develop websites using high performing Content Management Systems (CMS) such as WordPress and Koken.

All sites are built using responsive web designs aimed at allowing webpages to be viewed in a fluid response to the size of the device a visitor is viewing with, such as a tablet or mobile phone.

I can also set your Facebook Business and Google business pages as well as help with other social media needs.

Baked into the web design from the beginning is search engine optimisation (SEO) ensuring search engine-friendly websites. (SEO is the process of increasing the visibility of a website in a search engine’s unpaid results – often referred to as organic search results.) Combining responsive design and SEO ensures your site will look good as well as increasing it visibility on search engines such as google.

WordPress is the worlds most popular CMS. The strength of WordPress is in its quick installation and the massive user and developer community that results in a vast array of plugins and enhancements for the platform.   WordPress was used by more than 26.4% of the top 10 million websites as of April 2016. WordPress is reportedly the easiest and most popular blogging system in use on the Web, supporting more than 60 million sites worldwide.

Koken is a CMS built for creatives and photographers, it includes a full-featured management interface that looks and feels like a desktop application.  Setup your navigation, add pages, and edit your site’s color and layout with simple point-and-click controls. No HTML experience required. Browse, select and install themes and plugins through an integrated store. A publish services plugin for Lightroom allows you to upload, edit or replace images from inside Lightroom.

Finally no one wants their site to break, but they also don’t want to take time away from regular business matters, so I also provide maintenance and support services, such as: managing updates; monitoring for security breaches; backing up; setting up email accounts and other common types of support.

Pricing will depend on the individual site requirements but the following gives a fairly accurate idea of the cost per site.
