Everything You Need To Know
I'm based in Hillcrest, Durban, South Africa but I'm available for clients worldwide. I've created printed and digital content for both local and international brands, and have recently completed a stint as a freelance designer for Barrows Global (UK) where I worked on brands such as Budweiser and Essity. Back home in South Africa I developed an intranet portal for Massmart and continue to design websites for small to medium sizes businesses. I also do photography and video, you can view my other website here.
Every Website Comes With
Before I begin any work on your website we will sit together and discuss your needs and objectives. We'll discuss the functionality and how best to achieve your goals.
Search Engine Optimisation
Every page on your website will have the information included that search engines look for, ie. page titles, descriptions and keywords. I will also submit your website to Google.
Mobile Responsive Layout
Your website will automatically adjust to the size of the screen it is being viewed on, no need for a separate mobile version. Perfectly compatible with all devices.
World Class Design
I have a background in professional graphic design, so your website will not only be functional but beautiful too.
I will include a Google Map widget in your website on your contact page next to your contact form, this helps your customers find you and confirms your reputability.
Your domain is your website address. I will register your domain with the domain names authority and set up your hosting account with my preferred hosting company.
Home Page Slider
The front page of your website is where your most important and relevant information goes. It can include an interactive image slider or a special offer.
Hosting and Maintenance
Once your website is built and live, it will need monthly security backups and maintenance. Plugins and themes also need to be updated.
An easier way to get answers to commonly asked questions is to incorporate them into your website enquiry form.
Custom Email Adresses
You will get an almost unlimited amount of email addresses along with your website, which adds to your reputability. For example firstname.lastname@example.org
It's As Easy As
Step one is for us to sit together and plan your website using a good old fashioned pen and paper, we'll discuss your objectives and I'll suggest the best way to achieve them.
Next I will get to work on the development, I'll build all the pages according to what we discussed and let you know when it's time to test and review.
Once we're both happy with the website I'll make it live for all the world to see, I'll also submit it to Google for indexing so your site will show up in the search results.
"If it wasn't for our website we wouldn't have gotten any work in the beginning. It's still a vital part of our marketing because it confirms our reputability and continues to generate leads."
