Add Value to your business
Find, engage, and keep customers.
How can a website benefit my business?
There are many benefits to having a website, not the least of which is credibility. People expect your business or organisation to have a website and they expect you to show up on the first page of google. Once you have a website, it opens you up to doing business nationally and globally, the world is truly your oyster! If you don’t have your own products, you can sell products on your website that are available from reputable suppliers and never have to handle or ship them yourself. If you are too busy you can use a website to filter and qualify leads, improve your workflow and give you back time.
What type of website do I need?
One that ranks in google, generates leads and sales, keeps you in touch with your clients, is easy to use, and adds value to your business. From a technical and marketing perspective, we can build you nearly any type of website including an informational brochure website, an eCommerce website, a customer portal with a secure login area, or a mix of all of the above. If you have bespoke requirements then give us a call and we can discuss your options and find a solution. With access to 60,000 plugins that we can add to your site, the potential to build features and value into your website and business is only limited by your imagination. A well-functioning site can help take your business to the next level and give you back valuable time by streamlining your workflow.
How can a website save me time and money?
Selling to people online is less hassle and more cost-effective than dealing with customers in real life. Do the sales pitch once on your website and keep selling off that one pitch. You can qualify leads online, take inquiries, and get feedback using forms. You can save time and money by integrating with apps like Xero eliminating double handling which is a waste of time and money. Xero integration enables orders from your website to have invoices created automatically in Xero. Combine that with a Stripe or bank feed making reconciling invoices in your accounting software a breeze. We can integrate your website with other apps such as Hubspot so all your website’s contact form inquiries go directly into your Hubspot account.

What Does It Cost?

How much does a website cost?
The best way to think about website costs is in relationship to the profit generated by leads or sales from your website, both of which can be tracked and reported on. New businesses can often spend up to $100,000 on a shop fit, vehicle branding, and signage. This could result in tens of clients coming into the store each day. If you spent a quarter of that on a high-quality website and the digital marketing to go with it, it can result in thousands of people visiting your online store each day. You are no longer limited by your physical location or country.
“Invest in digital the same way you would with a bricks and mortar store”
If you need a brochure-style website, budget in the range of $3,500 – $10,000, depending on the number of pages and other bits you need such as content writing and photography. When it comes to an eCommerce website, you need to be thinking in tens of thousands. Budget $10,000 – $15,000 to get an eCommerce website built depending on the number of products, shipping options, payment options, etc. If you want an eCommerce website with lots of bells and whistles like Xero integration, CRM (customer relationship manager), or a Point of Sale system built in, it’s more likely to be in the range of $15,000 – $30,000. Time saved through integration can easily offset the extra setup costs.
Should I build my own website?
Short answer, no. The likes of Squarespace, Shopify, and Wixx have spent millions telling you that you can build your own website. That is basically the same as someone giving you a box of automotive parts and telling you that you should just assemble it into a car. Unless you have previous experience as a mechanic, then you would never think to attempt it. Building a website is the same thing. It’s technical, complicated, and ever-changing. Even if you manage to build your own website, will it be better than the competition’s website? Will it successfully reflect the value proposition of your business? Will it have ‘call to actions’ and the correct user-centric design that is optimised for mobile phones, tablets, and desktop computers? Once you have built your site, will you know how to market that online? Will you know how to analyse the results from Google Analytics and make the relevant changes to keep it improving?
“It’s like trying to build a car from a box of free parts”
