Pro Tip – When comparing which web design agency in Australia to use for a new or updated site, ALWAYS ask what SEO is included in their standard pricing. Most will only give you the absolute minimum and you still won’t rank well on Google unless you upgrade your SEO package.

Web Design Australia – What to Expect

l

Web Design Step 1 - Discovery

We’ll have an indepth discussion about your web design. We’ll discuss your business goals, budget, timelines and ideal inclusions.
Common Questions

Do we need to meet prior to quoting on my site?

No, however we will need to have an indepth discussion about your business. We’ll need to learn as much about your business as possible before submitting our proposal. Once we’ve spoken, we’ll do our own research and obtain as much relevant information as possible to help us provide you with the best possible solutions.

How do I give you the information for the Website Design Brief?

Once you’ve decided to go ahead with our proposal, we’ll send you a comprehensive questionnaire that will enable us to commence your web design project.

This is where the magic happens! With the information you gave us in Step 1, we’ll get to work designing and building your website.
Common Questions

I have no web design concept at all, can you help me?

Absolutely, we can provide great visual suggestions based on your industry and business goals.

What’s involved in the design and build phase?

Yes, in fact most of our web design and builds contain some elements of content written by us, even if you have provide all the content yourself.

We know what works with search engine optimisation (SEO), therefore we’ll usually add our own content to further enhance your site for optimal Google search engine results page (SERP) ranking.

If you don’t have any of your own content, don’t worry, we can write your entire website’s content if needed.

Do you outsource your website design?

No, we do all design work in-house.

Web Design Step 3 - Review

Any significant alterations and modifications will happen here if needed.
Common Questions

What input do I have during this phase?

We’ll be updating you along the way and we’ll give you access to your staged site to see how it’s progressing. And remember, we’re only a phone call away.

How many changes am I entitled to?

Generally, we allow for up to 2 changes per section. You can change your mind as many times as you like, however standard hourly charges will apply.

Why is WordPress your preferred platform?

Well, WordPress is great for clients to maintain without knowing any coding. Although daunting for some in the initial setup phase, it really is quite easy to use. And it’s so versatile, you can build just about anything with it.

One of our goals in web design is to build sites that our clients can edit if they choose to do so. Many competing website platforms claim to have amazing drag and drop editors that make building your own website a breeze, however they are generally weak in SEO functionality and have very limited web design capabilities.

The thing we like most about WordPress is that it’s SEO friendly. Search engines really, really like WordPress. It optimises well straight out of the box, however you  can get some great plugins to make it even more awesome.

WordPress is also a great eCommerce platform, utilising the popular WooCommerce plugin. Having said that, we use either WooCommerce or Shopify when designing eCommerce sites.

Web Design Step 4 - Handover

Voila, your website is complete!
Common Questions

Will you maintain my website?

Of course we can maintain your website. Although we design our sites for easy editing and maintenance by the owner, we can also look after all the back end biz for you. We’re happy to discuss our maintenance plans at any stage of our journey together.

What about website hosting?

We’re more than happy to host your website through our WordPress Managed Host and can bundle your hosting with our website care plans. Essentially, we provide ‘set and forget’ options that will remove any concerns about keeping your site live and up to date.

Of course, you can source your own web host, we’ll ensure your site is transferred to that host during launch.

Web Design FAQs

SEO Basic vs SEO Advanced

Not all Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the same.

Generally speaking, most SEO agencies provide the following Basic SEO inclusions:

  • SEO plugin such as Yoast
  • Page title – what you see in you browser tab
  • Page layout – headings (h1,h2 etc) and paragraphs
  • Meta Title and Meta Description – what you see on a Google search engine results page (SERP)
  • Page speed reporting

On Page SEO goes further than what is generally provided. Ask your SEO agency to include the below optimisations, it’ll be well worth the extra cost and effort:

  • All of the Basic SEO inclusions
  • Content keyword optimisation
  • Heading keyword optimsation
  • Image alt text optimisation
  • Image size optimisation
  • Google Indexing
How long does it take to design and build a website
It depends upon the size and complexity of your website. We like to provide our clients with a fast turnaround and aim to complete our basic sites within 4 weeks. Having said that, larger and more complex web design and builds will generally take more time.
How long will my web site take to rank on Page 1 of Google
We get this question a lot at Digital Marketing Hub. When it comes to web design and ranking high on a Google Search Engine Results Page (SERP), there honestly is no simple, one size fits all answer.

If you’ve had a budget website built somewhere else with minimal SEO input, it’s quite likely your site will never see the light of day. Having said that, if your website has been adequately designed and optimised for SEO, you may see some positive results within a few months.

It’s not all about kewords and the ‘red light, green light’ of SEO software plugins in terms of how quickly you will rank well on Google, it’s much deeper than that.

Your page content is absolutely critical, as poorly written content stuffed with keywords and phrases may result in your site being  penalised and displayed lower on Google Search Engine results.

Remember, it’s almost certain that your competition have an SEO strategy in place, so chances are your keyword SERPs may take a while to gain traction.

The reality is that an effective SEO strategy is something that must be done ASAP. In my blog Why SEO is Crucial for Small Businesses, I wrote that;

Search Engine Optimisation is an INVESTMENT IN YOUR FUTURE

It’s worth a read, I’m confident it will shine a brighter light on the relationship between a good web design and an effective SEO strategy.

Should I build my own web site

Want to go it alone and build your own website?

If you have the time, loads of patience and a creative flair, I highly recommend exploring your inner web designer.

Our friends at digital.com have created an amazing guide to using WordPress or other website builders. You’ll find loads of information on building, customising and managing your very own website.

Have fun!

Can I update my website at any time
Yes, having a WordPress website means you can easily update your website whenever you choose. Once your site has been designed, built and handed over to you after final payment, the website is entirely yours to own.
Will I receive training in how to manage my own website
Absolutely. At Digital Marketing Hub we believe that you should be able to manage your own website. That’s one of the reasons we’ll design build your site with WordPress and a choice of amazing web page builders, it makes it much easier for you to manage any changes down the track. We won’t overcomplicate your site with code that only the author can manage, that’s bad business etiquette and only makes keeping your website fresh and current harder. We include Website Training in all of our packages. As a small business, it often makes smarter business sense to make the smaller changes without the added cost of a web developer.
