FAQ’s.

WIX

There is always a question of which is the best website builder software to use for website design especially with many cropping up in the market. Let’s re-frame it this way: Is WIX better than WordPress, Drupal, Shopify, Weebly, Squarespace, and the likes? Is WIX worth it? The answer isn’t that straightforward. It always depends on the kind of solution you are looking for. Each of the cloud website builders and the CMS platforms has pros and cons, hence it is a matter of choice! WIX is a great choice for those who want to create attractive and functional websites faster. In fact, it is one of the easy to use builders around as it doesn’t require lots of technical knowledge to get started. That said, you will perhaps need a WIX designer to help if you want better designed WIX websites and professional solutions for your business.

Yes. Many design companies won’t mention recurring costs before starting your project. At a minimum, you’ll need monthly web hosting and an annual domain name registration.

What

WordPress

We use our own collection of plugins to extend WordPress for small businesses.

Category: WordPress

Never. We design and code each website by hand.

Category: WordPress

We believe WordPress is currently the best CMS available for small businesses. Unfortunately, not all WordPress websites are created equal. There are a lot of low-quality pre-made themes available that give the platform a bad reputation. We build each website from the ground up using our own Framework.

Category: WordPress

WordPress is content management system (CMS) software that allows you to edit and manage the text and images on your website. It’s open-sourced and community developed, meaning anyone is free to build their website on top of the software.

Category: WordPress

A content management system (CMS) is software that allows you to update and manage your website through an easy-to-use interface. Think of it like Microsoft Word but for your website. Without this software, you’ll need to hire a web developer to make modifications to your website. We use WordPress, the most popular CMS in the world, as our content management system.

Category: WordPress

Yes. We use WIX and WordPress, both the leading CMS currently in use on the Internet. We believe it provides the right balance of customisation and usability for small businesses.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

No. If someone is making you this guarantee, be very careful. There are bad actors who claim this is possible. They typically use techniques that can penalise your website or even get you removed from Google. Every business’s circumstances are unique and the outcome of every SEO strategy is different. A more realistic goal is to have your website show up on the first page of Google results for a set number of key words.

Yes. It’s almost always possible to get your website to show up for “branded” searches, meaning someone typing in your business name. It can be much more difficult to compete on industry keywords if your market is oversaturated.

Yes. All our websites are coded using search engine optimisation best practices.

Our Basic plan includes SEO Content Optimisation and is perfect for small businesses looking for an extra marketing push. We’ll perform industry keyword analysis and make content modifications monthly to help improve your ranking. The premium plan also includes Local Search Optimisation where we’ll list your business on “Google My Business” and other major directories. This can also be a good way to gain visibility if your business operates within a small geographical area.

Yes, in some form. Many people are surprised to learn SEO isn’t a single process that takes place. Google has thousands of different factors it weighs in order to rank your website. How fast your site loads, ease of use on mobile, how long people stay on your site, and more are all taken into consideration. On-page search engine optimisation is almost always a good idea. This ensures your website is coded to correct standards and the content on your website is structured properly. This makes Google happy and gives you a boost within their rankings. This is included within your plan, which is different to most agencies. Off-page search engine optimisation is more complex and primarily involves something called “backlinks”. These are links on other websites pointing to your website. Getting authentic quality backlinks is very time consuming and difficult. Some agencies will try to “game” the system by creating fake backlinks. Google is getting very good at figuring out if a backlink is fake. If you’re caught, you can be completely delisted from Google searches. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is.

SEO on WIX works pretty much the same as other platforms but this platform has a tool known as WIX SEO Wiz to help you rank faster on Google and Bing’s first pages. It is basically a wizard that guides you towards ranking your WIX site higher on search engines, in your niche.
There are other ways to improve SEO on WIX but perhaps the best way is to use the right keywords in your content. We are talking about finding out about what users are searching around your site’s niche or product, then cleverly inculcating them to your content. This includes having the right keywords in titles and metadata for every page or section on the site. You should also tailor the site for mobile devices, structure it well, build links with relevant sites (e.g through Guest Posting) and of course generate quality content that keeps users coming back for more!

Hosting + Domains

If you don’t have a domain name and our on our standard or premium plan, we can purchase and register one on your behalf at no additional charge. As long as you’re on one of these plans, we will automatically renew your domain for you annually.

A domain name is a memorable phrase used to access your website, often “yourbusinessname.com”. Every computer connected to the Internet has a long string of unique numbers used to identify itself called an “IP address”. Without a domain name, you would need to remember the IP address in order to view a website. Domain names are purchased using a “registrar” which acts like a phonebook. When someone types in your domain name, behind the scenes your registrar will look up your domain for them and return your IP address back. Their computer will then know where to find your website.

Yes. Most web hosts bundle email service into web hosting to give you a barebones email system. Basic spam controls or fraud and virus protection are given and very limited amount of storage space. But you can upgrade your email plan.

Yes. “Fully-managed” web hosting is included with all of our plans. Simply put, we take care of everything for you.

Yes. This is what makes your website accessible through the Internet. All of our plans include web hosting at no extra charge.

Web hosting refers to the server which responds to requests to view your website. It’s simply another computer connected to the Internet for the sole

purpose of transmitting your website to users. Any time you visit a website, there is another computer somewhere in the world you connect to in order to view it.

Design + Development

Yes. We use WIX and WordPress, both the leading CMS currently in use on the Internet. We believe it provides the right balance of customisation and usability for small businesses.

Our Basic plan allows for 2 revision rounds, Plus and Pro plan allows for 4 rounds, and our Unlimited and eCommerce plan allows for unlimited revisions. We ask that you give us a comprehensive list of changes each time to make the process quick and smooth. Revisions only become an issue if it’s obvious we’re moving in circles. If this happens, we’ll work with you on ways we can get the project back on track.

Yes. We believe our solutions are some of the best you’ll find. Some of our clients see a majority of their traffic from mobile phones. We put a high emphasis on making sure the website experience on a phone is second-to-none.

Responsive web design is a technique used to build a website that adapts its layout to fit the size of any device. Instead of having to build an additional website for mobile devices, you can lower initial costs by only needing a single website. Since responsive web design is really only a classification, each company has their own interpretation and implementation.

Nope! A lot of our competitors purchase “themes” or use pre-made templates to cut costs. We make every website to the exact needs of each client.

Our primary focus is working with business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) small businesses. We have experience with creating websites within almost every major industry. Contact us and we’ll consult with you to see if we’d be a good fit.

We’ve found it’s cheaper in most cases to start over than it is to retrofit or complete an existing website.

In order to keep our prices as low as possible, we do not offer proposals. However, we do start each project with a plan in place. Once you hire us, we outline content and design details prior to starting.
