Common Web Design Questions

A selection of the most common questions I get asked about my website creation services.

Yes, absolutely. Each website that I have built is unique and completely tailored to the business it was made for.

Many "cheaper" website builders will use templates to cut down their own costs, however I believe that to look professional and have the best chance of success its important to have a custom design that reflects your brand and is built to achieve business growth from the outset.

Success looks different for every business, and every business in unique in some way. It makes sense that each website should be built with a strategy to achieve those specific business goals and showcase the unique value proposition of the business.

WordPress is the usual option, however the choice of content management system can vary depending on the website requirements and the business.

I build the majority of websites for Gold Coast businesses using the Wordpress CMS. From simple 5-page business websites to larger, more complex sites, Wordpress offers the flexibility, functionality and plugins to help make it happen.

WordPress is also very simple to use, so if you would like to add your blog posts or change some wording yourself, you can. Sometimes different CMS solutions are required depending on the project requirements. For instance, online stores are usually built in Shopify, micro websites are static HTML or built using a lean PHP framework called MODx Revolution.

As mentioned above, you are welcome to edit your own website and the Wordpress system makes it easy to do so. However if you don't feel comfortable doing this or you are too busy, I am always just an email away and can assist you with any updates and amendments required.

All websites I build and serve from my web hosting will include an SSL Certificate, which stands for Secure Sockets Layer Certificate - you can see this as part of your website address and refers to the https section.

If its just http, then the connection is not secure. If your website address includes https and you also see the lock symbol that means the site is safe and any data or communication with that website is encrypted between your browser and the website's server.

An additional form of security is to ensure regular updates of your website and plugins, which will make your website less susceptible to hacks. This is provided to each of my clients who are on one of my affordable monthly website maintenance plans.

In 2022, around 58% of all internet users around the world use their mobile phone to search the web. This has increased from 31% in 2015 and is likely to continue to rise as time goes on.

For this reason alone, all websites need mobile responsiveness in order to provide visitors (and potential customers) with a smooth user experience when accessing through a mobile device. It's no longer optional but a design requirement.

Google have pushed this point even further with the introduction of 'Core Web Vitals' and 'Mobile-First Indexing'. This means they will use the mobile version of a website for crawling and indexing which can have a direct impact on your search engine rankings. It's critical that your website has a smooth transition between mobile and desktop and a responsive design will help to achieve this.

No. All work is conducted in-house by me (Michael Sherry) and my small team based on the Gold Coast.

Working local is the is the only way to ensure the integrity and high quality of my website design, web development & online marketing work.

I have been designing and building websites for over 8 years, with extensive industry experience in agency work and freelance web design throughout this time.

Since moving to the Gold Coast QLD in 2013, I have worked with dozens of local Gold Coast businesses and helped achieve some excellent results for them with online marketing.

From local auto electricians, to dental clinics, laundromats, removalists, accountants, physiotherapists and attorneys, I have a broad range of experience and the ability to provide my clients with the highest standards of web design services at an affordable price.

Every business requires a unique website and as such, every project is quoted based on the requirements and desired outcomes.

The cost of a website varies greatly depending on the degree of functionality required and the overall size of the website, whether you require premium plugins or have additional requirements such as eCommerce or APIs.

A basic website with a contact form, a blog section and around 5-10 pages will cost from $3500 and up. Larger business websites will start from $6000.

There are certainly cheaper website builders out there but you will be extremely limited in design, functionality and performance. Going for the cheapest option can cost your business greatly in the long run in terms of missed sales, poor usability and customer frustration.

To get an accurate price on website design and development services, get in touch to arrange a consultation, either in person or online, so I can get a better idea of what your design requirements are and what functionality your website will need.

Generally. you can expect to pay around $200 annually which covers your website hosting plan, SSL certificate and domain name recurring costs.

I use a fast & reliable Australian hosting provider which guarantees 99.9% uptime. Backed by a highly responsive hosting support team, your website will be safe from server issues and performing at it's best,

I also offer very affordable website maintenance plans which ensure the system your website is built in is kept secure, up-to-date and backed up each month.

This includes regular website checks/testing, theme updates, core software updates, plugin updates and security updates which start from $60/month.

To get your website up and running, I can assist with domain registration and hosting services so you will only need one point of contact for all of your website requirements.

I also offer digital marketing solutions to improve your digital presence and achieve ongoing growth, including high quality local SEO services which will help your website to rank better in Google search for relevant phrases.

Instead of hoping and waiting for customers to find you, SEO will put your website in front of an audience that is actively searching for the services you provide. Its a crucial element of digital business and something every business owner with a website should consider.

I also offer quality Google Ads management which provides your business with immediate results in the form of quality leads and sales from paid traffic.

Generally 3-6 weeks.

Once a proposal has been signed and an initial deposit has been recieved, most business websites can be designed, developed, populated with content and launched within 3-6 weeks.

Every website is unique to the business, so it's natural there are exceptions where the development timeline can be less than 3 weeks or longer than 6 weeks.

You'll be provided with an approximate website development timeline before you sagree to go ahead and sign your proposal.
