Web Design & Maintenance
Web site design is our specialty. Our development platform of choice is WordPress. “WordPress powers one of every 6 websites on the Internet, nearly 60 million in all, with 100,000 more popping up each day. 18.9 percent of the web is running on WordPress” This is according to an issue of Forbes Magazine published on the 24th of September 2012. With so many people using WordPress, you cannot ask for a better platform.
By using WordPress as a platform we have the best of both worlds. We have tools that assists us to develop sites relatively quickly & therefore cheaper, but we will also design unique sites, which are Taylor made to suite the corporate identity & business needs of the customer. Although web sites are primarily a source of information, we believe that they should also be graphically pleasing to the eye & clear, work well & be well-thought out & therefore easy to navigate. We optimize our graphics to ensure fast loading speeds & this helps your customers get what they want quickly.
Our websites are tested with all popular & relatively modern browsers. This is to make sure that our sites are cross-browser-friendly.
When we build a website, we also register it with Google & include SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), this is included at no extra cost & should help your web site appear on the first page of Google.
The price of the web site & the length of time it takes to design and build a website depends on the scope of work & the type of web site that you require. Some web sites like those with shopping carts can cost more to setup. If you contact us & tell us exactly what you need done, we can give you a quote & timeline.
We design our websites on CMS (Content management System) so that you can maintain the website yourself if you would like. However we are also only too happy to maintain any websites that we have developed. For minor changes, we charge our standard minutely rate (so you don’t have to pay for a whole hour of maintenance if it only takes 5 minutes). For structural changes, we will provide you with a quote based on what needs to be done. If there are going to be regular updates we can organize a monthly retainer, whereby you pay us monthly fee at a discounted rate.
