We have a tried and tested process when it comes to websites and aim to keep the formula as streamlined and effective for our clients as possible. The first stage is always establishing a brief and desired outcome. We aim to get a good understanding of your business and its objectives.
Our next step is to create wireframes and concept designs. Creating a website is collaborative, so we encourage our clients to be involved and give feedback early on.
Once the design is approved, we move to construction, showing you a site on a testing server, populate it with content and train you to edit. Any testing or debugging is performed at this stage prior to going live.
Timings are always different with each project, but in a perfect world, a simple brochure-style website would take 2-3 weeks. 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 as we go. If you have a deadline we will confirm if it’s achievable and commit to meeting it.
Our websites are complete solutions. We. plan and style the site to be a cohesive and professional finished product. For standard website solutions, our prices range from $3500 to $6000 as an average indication. The more complex a site in terms of functionality and special custom features will be more expensive.
We prefer to work with WordPress, as it’s open-sourced and provides a more flexible long-term solution for our clients. We also work with Joomla, Shopify, Magento, and Wix.
The only on-going costs are your yearly hosting, domain name registration and renewal of you’re SSL certificate. 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 a large eCommerce website that uses a lot of bandwidth and data then 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 web design Sydney 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.
