Custom Website Design & Development

Having a website isn't just for online sales...

Any business can benefit from having an online presence. Hairdressers, electricians, plumbers, builders, legal services, property services, photographers, sports teams, schools, non-profit organisations, the list is endless. Providing your customers with as much information about your business as possible maximises the chances of a potential customer making contact with you. Promote your website link on your vehicle, in your business front window, in newspaper and print media, letterbox drops, social media including Facebook, Yellow Pages ads, on your business card, in fact any place that you can think of. From the comfort of their own home your customers can check out your hours, services, prices, gallery of work and then make the decision to contact you.

With over 15 years experience and over 200 websites built for small, medium and large businesses you can be assured your new website will be in capable hands. My focus is on quality design, website usability and above all, unrivalled customer service. I keep my client base to a minimum so your business will always have my full undivided attention. You will be kept up-to-date every step of the way with your website progress and I aim for a turnaround time of 6 weeks.

Effective Search Engine Optimisation is done by selecting the appropriate keywords and key phrases that are relative to your business. Major search engines including Google, Bing and Yahoo rank websites in their search results based on using the most appropriate keywords and key phrases describing the content on each page on your website. By using Search Engine Optimisation techniques we can increase web visitor counts or visits to your website by ranking your website very high in the search engine results of these keyword searches. Basic SEO is included in all of our website development projects.

Responsive Design

The use of mobile devices to surf the web is growing at an astronomical pace, but unfortunately much of the web isn't optimised for those mobile devices. Mobile devices are often constrained by display size and require a different approach to how content is laid out on screen. Our responsive site design ensures that your website will be on its best behaviour no matter what device your prospective customers are using.

Social Media

There are a range of social media websites today and it's difficult for a business to know which way to turn. Way back in 2004 I was one of the first web design teachers to introduce social media to the teaching classrooms of TAFE NSW and in 2015 your business will benefit from my years of experience. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Digg, Google Plus, Instagram, Pinterest.... I know which ones are relevant to your business, which ones to integrate into your online presence and how to setup your social media presence to make your business stand out from the crowd.
