Setup & Design
My web design business is something that I do on the side and is my after-hours job that’s why I look to be efficient with my websites and bring great quality and communication to my clients. See below for more details.
Building websites tailored to your needs.
Building websites for a long time I know what is involved and always think of the customer’s needs to help promote their brand. It’s important to know all the technology behind web design and that’s the advantage when selecting me as your designer.
Web Design Build
I try to stick to a process when building a website. There are certain steps I follow to get it up and running. I try to fit the needs of the client as best as possible.
With the use of CSS Editor’s and DIVI builder, I can customize website to your needs. In some cases, WordPress theme’s selected can have restrictions but I attempt to contact their developer or find ways to get the appropriate outcome achieved.
Always use known good plugins and only what is required and always recommend not to bloat WordPress with heaps of plug-ins.
Before the build starts I discuss with client what will suit best and that is selecting a pre-made WordPress Template or a custom build which I use DIVI builder for.
Before starting the build of the website its important to make sure you have a web host that supports the clients neeeds. Also if it’s a current web host upgrade plan if required. All extra costs with web host are NOT included in my pricing.
Post WordPress installation I make sure I apply to all the common security standards to make your website secure. Also discuss annual maintenance plan to help keep it secure with regular updates and much more
When selecting theme or building website I always consider mobile/responsive design so the website appears is working on all platforms.
In most cases client will supply the appropriate content needed for their website. I always recommend when writing content to take things like SEO and visual displays into consideration. Always discuss contact forms and CTA’s as well.

I work out with you what the best timeline is to build your website and Go Live. As this is my second job most clients are flexible on the timeline and expectation when job should be finished.
Once the website is live if you have purchased the support plan then it will be looked after with updating, content updates, security, backups and much more. Further services going forward would be SEO and getting more traffic to your website.
When set a scheduled time with the client to Go Live, I make sure that e-mail, old design and new design is all ready for viewing and appropriate testing is completed.
When starting the website project I invoice for part/deposit of project then when going live I’ll ask for the remaining payment. Normally accept payments via EFT which a final invoice will be sent.
