Each package can be mixed and matched and therefore the prices are a guide only. Please read the description under the graphic for an explanation of each item.
Webpages as required
Your website can typically consist of all of the standard web pages you need and a blog section if you decide it would be beneficial for your business to go down this track. Web pages can include the home page, about page, products or services page, a gallery and contact page, or any others you can think of. You can also stick to a brief one page website as per the trends of a few years back. However, as many people use the internet for research before making a buying decision, sometimes the less is more approach is not a good idea.
All our sites are mobile responsive, which means they resize to fit all devices and some aspects of the site may drop out. For example, in the full version of this website, there is a small contact box to the left of the top menu and a full side menu under the contact box. On the mobile site, both the contact box and the top menu are not visible and the side menu is in its place as a drop down navigation menu.
The blog page has a pinterest-style layout of four columns, but on my mobile phone there are only two columns of post images and extracts in portrait mode (four columns in landscape mode).
Image sliders are still a popular feature with the ability to link from images and add or remove images at any time. They can be any size, even smaller ones like the one at monique.co.nz.
Embedding videos is a great way to display a moving visual of your work, or staff etc. Videos can be hosted on youtube or vimeo, and simple code entered onto any web page.
Social media icons
It is fairly straightforward for us to add social media icons to your website, but I don’t recommend them if you are not planning to be active on social media, that is scheduling regular social media posts, and your target market are regular participants in social media.
Large background image
A large, beautiful background image can really add a splash to your site and create drama. A good example is the site of the Impact Dance and Stage School and the Webs International marker page, you can see that the different approach suits each site perfectly.
Everything mentioned above are options available for our customised sites (even when they are offered as freebies).
A good option, sometimes better than free social media accounts or paid ads, or as an addition to these, is to have an email newsletter. Not every email will be opened but you are still present in your customers’ inboxes if they sign up to your newsletter. We can set these up for you and train you to use them, or you can use the services of a Webs Assistant.
On Google maps
If you have premises, it is worth being on Google maps, as people searching for services in the area will find you when searching, and Google will tell you how far away from them you are. It is also easy to purchase Google ads through Google My Business. Verification is required – Google mails a postcard to your street address with a code up to 15 days after set up, before your appearance on Google maps.
Paypal buy now buttons
If you want to sell one or a small number of products and receive payment through Paypal (or via their credit card service), we can set up Buy Now buttons on your site. The funds are kept with Paypal until your download them into your bank account. They keep a small fee.
Shopping cart site
Another option for selling directly is to have a professional shopping site, such as shopify, where payment is made directly into your bank account. There is a monthly fee for some of these sites, but it is worth it for stores with larger inventories.
Social media set-up
If you need social media, we can set up accounts for you on the platforms you wish.
2 hrs Social media tuition
We offer specialised tuition for using social media sites.
Video promo show real
We can edit a limited amount of footage which you provide into a showreal of your work and embed the finished video on your site.
Multi-lingual site (2 lang)
If you provide the web copy translated into other languages, we can set up a dual website with the second language.
If you need an area for members, we can set this up for you and show you how to use it.
