Website Design Services
All of the websites I design are completely unique — each page is custom-built down to the last detail.
They're also effective, because the layout is designed strategically with your business goals and the needs of your audience top of mind.
With search engine optimisation (SEO), a security certificate and regular back-ups and updates included, you can be sure your website will always be in good health and personally taken care of.
01 / Research
An in-depth look at your audience, competitors and aesthetic preferences. We'll establish the primary purpose of your site and form a site map that suits your objectives.
02 / Design
I'll design + build a custom site on the WordPress platform. The design will be uniquely yours down to the last detail, responsive across different screen sizes and fully editable. There's plenty of opportunity to tweak everything to perfection with three revisions available.
03 / Training
Customised tutorials will be provided to show you how to manage and edit your site. Ongoing support is also available if you prefer to outsource your website's management and updates to me (for an additional fee).
04 / Launch
The most exciting part of all—we send your site live. Congratulations! I'll be on hand for a week to make sure any wrinkles are ironed out, then it's a wrap!

I like to offer my pricing upfront wherever possible. However, in my experience with website design, they are all so different in their needs and inclusions. So, I now only custom quote on all website enquiries. You can expect a price range anywhere from $1k-3.5k.
I'll quote on the following variables:
01 / Site Setup
Everything you need for a solid site foundation. This part of the project is outsourced to my husband, James, who is an IT professional with more than 15 years of experience. You’re in good hands: Domain name purchase and/or configuration; website hosting configuration; Google Analytics integration; security SSL certificate; website security software installation; basic search engine optimisation (SEO) setup; regular back-ups and managed updates.
+ Setup costs $500
02 / Website Hosting
All websites we create are hosted with us. This gives you a personal point of contact, speedy support and peace of mind for any issues that may arise. We perform regular backups and keep everything up to date for you to ensure everything runs smoothly behind the scenes. Technically, this includes 2GB disk, 200GB bandwidth on the flexible WordPress platform.
+ $29 per month, charged annually
03 / Site Map + Content
I take into consideration the number of pages you will need as well as the scope of content.
04 / Copywriting
I can provide copywriting services, or you can supply your own.
04 / Specialised areas
Some websites require more in-depth services such as being able to sell goods and services online, provide subscriptions or memberships, or integrate events and calendars.
05 / Training
I like my clients to feel confident and in control of their own website upon handover. So, I prepare a customised training document with step by step instructions on how to edit and manage everything on your site, including how to edit and make your own new pages.
Timeline: 4-8 weeks, depending on the scope
Investment: $1k-$3.5k as a guide
Q \ What websites have you built? I can't find anything on your portfolio.
My portfolio is currently undergoing some updates. In the meantime, if you'd like to see some samples of my work, I can send you a list. Please contact me.
Q \ Will I have a login to edit my website?
Yes, I will create your own user account for your website. You will be able to log in to the back-end dashboard and have full admin access. You will be able to edit everything on your site using a really easy drag and drop page builder called Beaver Builder. Don't worry, full training is provided.
Q \ Do you set up google analytics?
Yes! We will send you the details. Please note, we do not provide training on how to decipher the data. Most of it is pretty self explanatory but if you wish to delve deeper into the world of SEO and analytics we suggest you engage the services of an expert in this area as it is a real science in itself!
Q \ Will my website be mobile friendly and adapt to different screen sizes?
Yes! Our websites are fully responsive, which means they automatically adapt to all screen sizes (computers, tablets and mobiles). I do tweaks at the testing stage to ensure everything looks good on all sizes.
Q \ What about ongoing support? What happens if I need to change something in the future or make content updates after handover?
You will receive training for the elements you have chosen to include (such as adding a new blog post), so that you feel confident in managing it yourself. If you have other changes or content updates after go live that you would prefer to outsource to me I am more than happy to assist. However, as 'changes' and 'content updates' can be vastly variable in nature, I like to quote on a case by case basis.
