Website Conscruction

Different businesses require different types of websites and there is no need to buy a Ferrari hood for a holden commodore, you'll just be wasting your money and it won't suit your needs. If you have a clear idea of your website requirements, then you can get a more accurate quote from us.

Don't Know Where To Start?

What do you want your website to do for your business? This is the first question you should ask yourself and for the most part a client's response is...
I really just want a web presence showing what our business does and can do. It must have a contact form... Oh, and placed on the first page of Google!
If this describes your business, then you will be wanting what we call "A Base Build".

What do you get in a Base Build?

  • 5 to 10 pages of information (you can have as many pages as you want but usually 5 or 10 is enough to represent most small businesses. Page examples: Home, About Us, Services, Clients, Contact Us, etc.)
    NOTE: Higher content sites will increase the base build price.
  • All pages populated with images and copy (page information to be supplied by client, if you like we can supply licenced stock images)
  • Site content can be client managed using a simple click, drag & drop page builder system (support packages are also available if you would like us to do it for you).
  • Structured Home Page & Feature/Hero Banner: The home page will summarise your business, showing key points of interest to your users incorporating call to action buttons and links to engage your customers. The feature/hero banner can be static or include motion such as sliding, fading etc. Either way a feature banner will summarise the key points of your business.
  • Base SEO (Search Engine Optimization): keyword refinement, adding keywords/phrases & description to meta tags, using best SEO practices for titles, menus, images etc. (Keywords to be supplied by the client, we will help you refine them)
    NOTE: this is not a 1st page ranking guarantee as that is a dedicated SEO
  • Social Bookmarks & Like/follow buttons (if required)
  • A simple contact form or call to action form (e.g. name, email, subject & message, or something similar).
  • Design layout is selected by the client & developer then company logo, colours & images are added to give your site an original look.
  • You website will be fully mobile/tablet responsive, multi browser compatible development to work seamlessly on all devices from desktop down to mobile screen sizes.
  • Google Analytic integration (require Google or Gmail account)
  • Website coordination for creating a structure for the optimal layout.
  • Client liaison
  • Domain & hosting setup

Built Using Joomla (CMS) Framework

Your site will be built using the popular Content Management System "Joomla". You will be able to create or update menu and page titles and information easily yourself.

What is Joomla?

Joomla is a highly advanced and versatile content management system (CMS). What does this mean in layman's terms? Simply, it's the shell of a website and you add in the content. In your case the content is your business information. This platform is perfect if your website will contain a large amount of content and menus that you would like to edit and maintain yourself without paying a designer for updating fees. If you want to have full control of your site and cut down you ongoing updating cost, then this system is the best for you!

Q: What does CMS mean?
A: Content Management System.

Q: I'm familiar with Wordpress, can you build a Wordpress site?
A: Yes, they are both different versions of a CMS. We prefer Joomla simply because it is a more advanced versatile system. 

Joomla uses "Extensions, Components & Modules" for advanced functionality on your site.

REMEMBER! You can always add advanced functionality to any Joomla site as your business grows.

What are Extensions, Components & Modules?

Joomla also offers almost 9,000 extensions, these extensions either free or commercial enhance your site in many ways best suited to your business needs. In fact, this site itself is built using the Joomla system with various plug-ins handling functions like:
  • Member & client areas
  • Automatic invoicing systems
  • Online credit card payments
  • File download/upload handlers
  • Portfolio presentations
  • Photo & image album & slide show presentations
  • Support ticketing
  • Calendar systems
  • Shopping carts
  • www.extensions.joomla.org (find more extensions here)
 

What goes on behind the scenes of a Base Build?

  • Designer & client consultation via email or phone, or if you're located in Townsville, feel free to pop around for a face to face meeting during site development & pre-development
  • Testing site for cross browser compatibility (All popular** browsers & versions Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, iPad & iPhone*)
  • Testing site in different screen resolutions (HD screens to mobile devices)
  • Testing site on different operating systems (Mac, PC, iPod & iPhone*)

Advanced Websites or Specialised Features

Ask yourself these questions:
  • Do you require more functionality from your website to keep your growing business running smoothly?
  • Do you need specialised programming for your site that is unique to your business needs?
  • Do you need an eCommerce solution?
  • Do you want to manage members and users using your website?
  • Do you have requirements that exceed the standard presentation website?
Enough with the questions!
It sounds like you need to talk to an experienced web developer to find a solution, and it sounds like you need an advanced website created so...
