Website Design And Development

The purpose of your website is not just about what it looks and feels like. It’s about how it works.

Your Investment

Starting From $1,800

Timeframe

3 - 4 Weeks

When starting a new website project the first question we ask ourselves is, ‘How do users think?’

We focus on the usability of the website, not the visual design.

Users come to your website to look for information, not for the design, so we follow the keep it simple principle and focus on good user experience.

Now in saying all of this, the design of your website does matter as well! You need to stand out from your competitors.

Your website is your business’s best salesperson, it needs to be on brand and have a purpose.

What to expect when working with us

Get Your Free Website Estimate

At Seven Sands we have simplified the daunting process of getting a project quote by creating a simple questionnaire for you to fill out. Once we have received your questionnaire we will get back to you (via email) with a free no obligation estimate.

50% Project Deposit & Contract

Once we find out you are on board and ready to start your project, we will send through a Deposit Invoice and Contract to secure your place in our schedule. Check our availability here.

Website Questionnaire & Content Collection

Before your project start date, we will send you through a simple website questionnaire to gather all of the information relating to your website goals, likes, and dislikes.  This questionnaire will gather all of the information we need to create a great design for your new website.

Seven Sands will create a Google Drive Folder for your project. This folder will be used to share all of the website text and images etc. If you don’t know how to use Google Drive never fear we will be here to guide you through!

Website Design - Mockup Creation

This is the time where you can sit back and relax because you have done everything that you need to do. Now that I know the websites goals and what pages/features the website requires to fulfill these goals I will begin creating a Mockup of what the Homepage of your site will look like.

The mockup will show you how your websites homepage will be structured and what content will be included. Your mockup will be delivered as a .png file embedded into a custom .html link for you to review, it will not be a working website.

This process will take 5 business days and you will have 2 rounds of revisions. Once you are happy with your website mockup, we’ll move on to the development.

Website Development

Once we are set on the design of the website’s homepage now it‘s time to build it. Seven Sands builds all of their websites on a platform called WordPress, you can read more about the features and why we use WordPress here.

We’ll send you an interactive website to review and provide feedback on, so you don’t have to use your imagination to see how your customers will experience your website. The development stage of the process will take between 10-15 business days and will have 2 rounds of revisions. Changes after this revision will by charged at my hourly rate of $60/hour.

Final Revisions, Testing, Integrations

Your website needs to sit at the heart of your marketing strategy and play nicely with other software you use day to day, such as email marketing systems (e.g. Mailchimp), payment gateways (e.g. Stripe, Zippay), automation tools (e.g. Zapier), and audience monitoring tools (e.g. Google Analytics). View our hand-picked list of WordPress Integrations here.

Once our integrations are complete, we’ll run tests to ensure your website works perfectly on a range of devices (mobiles, tablets, laptops and desktops) as well as in the latest versions of major browsers (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).

Transfer & Launch - Ongoing Support

Once we’ve received your final payment, we’ll transfer your website to your hosting account so you can make any final copy edits or tweaks before you go live.

Then What?

On the launch of your website, Seven Sands will provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to make changes and edits to your website. We also have an Ongoing WordPress Support package available that includes 1 hour of website changes per month.

We will check in with you a week after launch to make sure everything is running smoothly and to answer any questions you may have. We will always be available post-launch to help.

Yes. Your website will be fully responsive and will look great on all devices. We don’t charge extra for this. It comes as standard.

It takes approximately 4-6 to design and build a custom website from scratch, providing we have all of the information from you prior to starting the project. We work with strict timelines to ensure all work is completed on time.

Depending on the website you want we normally require:

  • Any branding materials (logos, business cards, flyers etc.)

  • Images for the website
  • Any videos
  • And anything else you would like to include on the website

If you have an existing website we are also happy to transfer the content directly to the new website.

Generally, if we build your website we like to host it for you too. Our hosting services start at $20/month but you can choose to host your website anywhere you like.

Sure can! We understand that you don’t have time to run your business and keep your website up to date, that’s why we have created ongoing support plans for our clients.

Of course! Because our websites are built with Elementor WordPress, they are super easy to maintain. All of our website packages come with customised “cheat sheets” with details on how to login to your website and how to perform the most common tasks on your website.
