How Can We Help?

Townsville Web Design with DP Web Design

Sales Pitch

DP Web Design has been creating high quality websites for businesses across the North Queensland region since 2002. Our success is based on our ability to combine quality design with excellent functionality, resulting in attractive websites that are easy to navigate and enjoyable to use.

If you already have a vision for your website, we will deliver it. If you have a basic idea of what you’d like, but need professional input, we will work with you to bring your ideas to life. If you have absolutely no idea… no problem! You’ve come to the right place!

At DP Web Design, size doesn’t matter! Whether you’re a sole trader or large manufacturer… whether you sell flowers or save lives, DP Web Design will work with you to produce a website that represents your brand, meets your needs and continues to grow as you do!

Reality

Yes this is true! I've been designing websites since 2002, although when I started they were not as high quality as they are now, but hey, we all have to start somewhere. Also when I use words like 'our success' & 'our websites' I really mean 'me' (oh and now Zac), I do it all (ok most of it), It's just a thing us designers do to make us sound like we are not just a man in a room staring at a monitor.

"The ability to link quality design with excellent functionality..." bla bla bla! comes from over 200 website builds and thousands of hours in this field. I can make any website design layout requested, but if you request a website design or structure that has common website bad practice flaws in it, and continue with that layout ignoring my suggestions then I'm not responsible for low ranking or redesign of that site when it fails to provide your desired results.

You are employing me for my experience in graphic design, functionality and web design best practice knowledge & skills, please make use of this and be open to all my input, after all this is why you're thinking of hiring me.

Technical

At DP Web Design, our websites are built using the Joomla content management system, further enhanced by the numerous components, modules and plugins we’ve sourced over the years to make the Joomla system even more user-friendly. We also work with Wordpress, Shopify, Wix and other content builders. If a system you use or want is not listed, we may still be able to help. Please get in touch!

All of our sites are built using the latest software versions, to ensure the highest level of security and performance. We use the YOOtheme Pro Page Builder as the template framework, making editing as simple as drag and drop or as complex as adding code, scripts and modifying CSS.

We always use a 50+ point checklist when developing our sites to ensure they conform to internet security and performance best practices.

Websites Made EASY!

What we provide?

Sales Pitch

DP Web Design will provide a visually professional website, with rock solid functionality as per your requests. We build with you and your customers in mind, easy to edit and refined for your target audience. view portfolio...

Reality

No hidden truth sales pitch here. You and I will talk about what function your website has to serve, then it'll be built to best serve that function, oh and it's gonna look good too! It's not rocket science, just creativity, statistics & logic.

Technical

All my websites are built on the Joomla CMS using selected 3rd party components, modules & plugins to make editing and functionality even better. Using the YOOtheme PRO framework with a drag and drop system of editing.

Where to start?

Sales Pitch

You can email, Skype, online chat, Facebook, Twitter, SMS, send an online form and so on, but the best and most effective way is to simply call us and discuss your ideas with a professional. We have also developed our step by step web design process to help you understand what is involved.

Reality

Out of all those options, of course you're going to call. I just wanted to show you how accessible and connected I am. Unless it's 11 o'clock at night then don't call, go to bed, don't be like me and spend every waking hour on your business.

Technical

Nothing technical here!

What will it cost?

Sales Pitch

The average website will take anywhere from 25 to 30 hours to complete at $110p/h. We have created website packages to make pricing easier. Adding extra functionality will always increase a website build. Read more on pricing & standard websites here.

Reality

Base websites start at $2,420. Unfortunately if you think this pricing is too high then you're not at the place yet where you understand how much goes into a business website & the benefit of getting a professional to make one for you. If you have the time and a creative flare for the D.I.Y. option, then sign up to Wix, good for businesses on a budget.

Technical

Nothing technical here!

Time to start

Sales Pitch

A 1/3 (33%) deposit of quote estimation is required for work to start on your project. DP Web Design will send you all the information you need to gather your website or project content. We've done this hundreds of times, but you haven't, so we'll guide you through every step.

Reality

No bloated truths in the sales pitch here. When you pay 1/3 of the quotes price, I'll get started right away then when finished you just have to pay the remainder and the site goes live. Simple as that.

Technical

Nothing technical here!

Time frame

Sales Pitch

If you know what you want and all information is supplied a website can be completed in as little as 3 days (develop, review then finalise), but realistically the standard site is usually finished within 1 to 3 weeks from project start.

Reality

Honestly, the sales pitch is what everyone wants to hear and the truth is that I want to finish the project as quick as possible and get paid, but real world problems sometimes happen.

Read this to get a better idea.

Completion

Sales Pitch

Once final payment is made, your website will go live. We also supply a 3-week grace period where minor updates can be made (at no charge). You can also take advantage of our Support Packages offering big savings on our hourly rate.

Reality

I spend NO money on advertising so your satisfaction is my future work, just check out my Google Reviews. If you're not happy then the jobs not complete, simple as that.

Technical

I use a 5 step workflow consisting of an 80 to 100 point checklist (depending on the site build) used on every website created. There is a 30 point checklist just to wrap up the site making sure all sites follow a strict construction guideline.
Here's the Meat & Potatoes

Sales Pitch

We can talk until we're blue in the face about how good we are and all the wonderful things we can do for you, but let's face it, it doesn't mean a thing without proof of work. There's no 10 project portfolio here, take the time to look through our LARGE portfolio and notice the attention to detail with every website we build, and we've built hundreds over the years.

Reality

When I complete a website, I add it to my portfolio, so if you're looking at some of the live sites and they may seem a little out of whack, just remember all my clients have 100% access to the site and can do whatever they want with it once it is handed over. I know it sounds like I'm passing the buck here, but I'm a little OCD when it comes to the look and layout of my sites. Every pixel in its place.

Technical

Nothing technical here!

Above is only a sample of our latest work!
What Our Clients Think

Sales Pitch

DP Web Design spends NO money on advertising, so our client's satisfaction is our future. If you're not happy, then the job is not complete!

Reality

You might be thinking… yes, yes, more fake trumped-up testimonials, and you might be justified in thinking this except I have the same reviews on Google Business, check them out. If you've read reviews on Google Business you'll know how unforgiving they can be.

Technical

Nothing technical here!
