What We Cost

Every website is unique and prices can vary depending on design , complexity and functionality. The web design and development prices shown here are indicative

Website Design and Implementation

We build websites that work. Designed with the user in mind. Crafted from the keywords your clients are searching for and built to encourage visitors to stay, learn, engage and take action. Every site is unique and we spend time assessing your requirements and expected outcomes before we start developing. The initial consulting time we spend can save you time and money in the long run. We are very competitive and would be happy to give you a fully priced proposal once we understand your requirements.

Domain Registration

If you don’t already own a domain name we can organise your domain name for you. Preferably choose a domain name which corresponds to your business name. Finding a domain name that’s not taken can be difficult and pricing varies depending on domain suffixes (eg .com or .com.au) and what length of time the registration is for.

Premium Hosting

We recommend hosting on dedicated, secure, managed, super-fast WordPress servers. Our premium hosting starts at $15 per month and includes:

  • SSL Certificate
  • Software Updates – WordPress Core
  • Daily Website Backups
  • Ad Hoc Support

Managed Plugin Updates

Plugins and Themes are part of what make WordPress such a popular and powerful Content Management System. Plugins extend functionality and add features to your website. Plugins and Themes are regularly improved and updated for better performance and security, so keeping Plugins and Themes up to date is an important part of website maintenance.

With our Managed Plugin Updates feature, we keep your site working safely and updated all at a price that’s well worth the peace of mind!

For $20 per month(+GST) we can keep your plugins and themes up-to-date.

Email Addresses

The hosting of your email address can have an influence on how many of your emails end up in your customers’ junk bin. All email hosting is not the same. Rather than have an email address as yourname@gmail.com it looks more professional to have your own domain address as your email address. We charge $50 to establish each email box and then $1 per email box per month thereafter.

SEO - Search Engine Optimisation

Initial SEO

Once your site is live you want people to find you and SEO is the art of ranking as highly as possible in the search results of the major search engines. When you search for something on the internet, Google’s aim in life is to provide the best possible search results for your search term. Your website must be clear, concise and accurate, built with an understanding of E-E-A-T and Web Core Vitals (check out our blog) Keywords are still useful for SEO but E-E-A-T is now even more important in Google’s decision in deciding where your site ranks. What is E-E-A-T? It stands for Experience, Expertise, Authoritativeness and Trustworthyness – and your content has to convey those characteristics. We will help you ensure that your website is built for E-E-A-T There are a number of other “on page” techniques to help with ranking which range from page speed to keywords in your content. Our initial SEO work on your site consists of
  • E-E-A-T consultation and recommendations
  • Keyword selection (up to 100 keywords and phrases)
  • Initial ranking for those keywords
  • Competitor ranking comparison (up to 3 competitors)
  • Fixing page titles, meta descriptions etc
  • Headline analysis
  • Page speed analysis
  • Image alt tag

The average cost of this initial SEO work is $950 and can vary depending on the complexity of the site

Ongoing SEO

Staying ahead of the competition with your search engine ranking is an ongoing art consisting of  

  • reviewing your analytics,
  • measuring your metrics and
  • analysing your and your competitors rankings.
  • and making the necessary adjustments to remain competitive.

Ongoing SEO commences at $150 per month and, depending on the nature of your business can be carried out monthly or quarterly

Care Plans - Looking After Your Website

Enjoy peace of mind by ensuring your website is safe, secure and always at its best

Just like cars, websites need a little maintenance to keep them safe, secure and in optimum condition

We wouldn’t expect you to service your car neither would we expect you to maintain, service, update and support your website.

You would probably prefer to spend your time managing and growing your business.

To keep your website in top condition:

    1. WordPress needs to be updated regularly
    2. Plugins have to be updated and tested – there are major updates to WordPress 2 or 3 times a year but minor updates and security updates can occur several times a month.
    3. Plugin functionality and security updates occur regularly so your plugins need to be updated and tested regularly.
    4. Text and images may need to be added from time to time to ensure that your content is fresh and relevant to your target market.
    5. SEO adjustments may have to be made to ensure that you are maximising visitors and
    6. Content may need to be tweaked to ensure you are maximising conversions.

We can tailor a Care Plan to suit you

You may have the time and experience to look after text and photo changes, add articles and new testimonials but don’t want to touch the plugin updates. Not a problem – choose those tasks you’d like to complete and we’ll handle the rest.

Whether it’s interpreting your Google Analytics or improving your search engine rankings – it mostly come down to progressively adjusting your site until it is fulfilling the objectives you had when you first went live – and like most website owners you want “more paying customers!”

The suggested care plans set out below are those we’ve found suit most of our customers – but we’d be happy to develop a tailored plan that is just right for you.
