Understanding a client’s needs and target market is crucial to every web design project. Taking a comprehensive brief from the client and establishing goals is an essential first step. It’s also important to understand what your competitors are doing online and look at ways to outshine them.
Once we have established what we need to do, we create a plan for how we will do it. Then, we produce website wireframes, evaluate the brand and make any necessary recommendations for change. We also start planning your website’s copy and content marketing strategy, critical ingredients for consumer engagement and Google rankings.

See some of our recent web design case studies – we have lots more web design projects but this is just a snapshot of some of the great work we’ve been doing for some of our Sydney clients.
The Bali Villa Escapes website was designed & built on a WordPress platform. There was extra add ons such as a chat feature, TrustPilot review software, and a currency converter. The website was optimised for the search engines and is ranking on Google for all its main keywords. The project took 6 weeks from briefing to launch, and we continually update the site with content, videos and security features for peak performance on Google.VIEW CASE STUDY
Doolan Wagner approached Hopping Mad Designs to create a new website and commence an SEO campaign to drive new sales leads and increase revenue. The results were phenomenal, with a 300% increase in website traffic and excellent Google rankings. The website is built on a WordPress CMS platform allowing for easy updates and the latest plugins. In the competitive divorce lawyers industry, the most profitable keywords are also the most competitive. Proven SEO strategies with a conversion-focused web strategy boosted this client’s search engine rankings – resulting in top 3 rankings for super- tough keywords such as ‘ divorce lawyers North Sydney’.VIEW CASE STUDY

Timings are always different with each project, but a simple brochure-style website would take 2-3 weeks in a perfect world. The more complex the site and its functionality, the longer it will take. We will always communicate with you throughout the process, updating you on timings. If you have a deadline, we will confirm if it’s achievable and commit to meeting it.
We prefer to work with WordPress, as it’s open-source and provides a more flexible long-term solution for our clients. We also work with Joomla, Shopify, Magento, and Wix.
The only ongoing costs are your yearly hosting, domain name registration and renewal of your SSL certificate. However, if you make any design amends to the website structure, this will need to be quoted.
Hosting: Every website on the Internet needs to be ‘hosted’ on a server somewhere (preferably in Australia ). Without this hosting, your website would not show online, and no one would be able to view it. A hosting company charges a yearly rental fee for your hosting, and the cost is roughly $695+gst per year. If you have an extensive eCommerce website that uses a lot of bandwidth and data, the hosting fee will increase.
Domain Name Renewal: Each year, your domain name will require renewal.
You own your website and all the intellectual property. Some agencies will not allow this but at Hopping Mad Designs we are happy to hand the whole site over to you with all the necessary logins and passwords.
We design and build every new site with the goal of setting it up so it will have the best chance of ranking on Google. We optimise every page with the correct meta titles and descriptions so once launched your web design Sydney will be easily indexed by Google. According to Statista, in February 2021, online search engine Bing accounted for 6.7 per cent of the global search market, while market leader Google had a market share of 86.6 per cent. So we make sure that you have the best chance of taking advantage of this with an SEO-Google-friendly website. See our SEO Sydney service.
You have total control over the website and can make as many changes as you like and the best part is; that it’s completely free. We will show you how you can make content amends through the back end of the WordPress website and if you run into any dramas or are still unclear, we are here to help you.
