Importance of a hiring best web design company in Australia
Our advice is to hire a true “website professional” who will bring all of his or her advanced web design skills to the project, deliver a final product that will stand the test of time… and… Make sure your website is profitable!
We are not just another “boutique” website design company. We were one of the very first website design companies in Australia… and we still remain one of the very best. When you hire us, you are hiring a full service website design company with over 20 years of combined experience… and… You can be 100% certain that your project will get the highest attention from everyone on our team.
Website these days are almost as important as the product or service that is being sold. In fact, we believe that a well-designed and well-written website can be more valuable (in some cases) than the product or service itself. A good website is like a mini-magazine that is updated frequently about your company and its products and services.
The website also provides an opportunity for you to sell your company and its products and services to millions of people all over the world. We have created hundreds of websites for our clients over the years. Some of these clients have had very successful results with their websites; others have had disastrous results. We believe that no matter what, every website should contain these three elements:
(a) An About Us page which gives visitors to the website a general idea about who the person or group is that owns the website, what they are trying to sell (if anything), and how they can be contacted.
(b) A Contact us page which enables visitors to send a message to the website owner. This could be for any reason, such as to request more information, to suggest changes be made to the website, to ask for an update on a certain project, or to offer help in some way. The owner of the website then decides whether or not to respond to these messages. If the owner does choose to respond, it is usually via email.
(c) A Sales/Pricing page which enables the website owner to sell his products and services via email. In this case, the visitor pays for whatever is being sold via PayPal or some other secure method and the website owner sends an email with an attachment containing the purchased product or service. The website also needs to be search engine optimized.
How to find a best web design company in Australia?
There are many ways to go about finding a best web design company in Australia. Some of the best ways include: Ask around. Ask your friends, your relatives, your colleagues, your neighbours, your associates, and anyone else you think might know someone who would be interested in this kind of work. Word of mouth is still the best way to locate a best web design company in Australia. Search online. There are several websites where you can post your project details and various website designers and developers will send you their qualifications and bids for the project.
How much does it cost to get a new website?
Website costs vary greatly depending on a number of different factors. The first and foremost factor is how much (features) you want for your “buck.” If you’re getting a basic, one-page site with e-mail signup and an opt-in e-newsletter, you can expect to pay between $100 and $5,000 for a one-time setup fee and about $30 to $100 per month in ongoing maintenance fees.
If you have more extensive needs, the cost of getting a website designed and built can easily run to four figures. On the low end, you can get a simple, static website with a few pages for around $2,000. On the high end, you can get a complex, database-driven website with hundreds of pages, shopping carts, e-commerce capabilities, and all sorts of other advanced features that will set you back tens of thousands of dollars.

The process of how a web design company charges for their work?
The process of how a web design company charges for their work is somewhat mysterious. However, there are some costs involved that are not properly accounted for in most client/designer contracts. To get an idea of what I’m talking about, let’s examine the fee structure of a typical website project:
Design: Usually, this is where the bulk of the cost of the project lies. If your needs are rather simple, you can expect to pay a one-time fee of approximately $5,000 to $10,000 for a good web design company to create a basic, functional site for you.
If you have more extensive needs, you can easily spend double or triple that amount. On the low end, you can get a simple, static HTML website with a few pages for around $2,000.
On the high end, you can get a complex, database-driven website with hundreds of pages, shopping carts, e-commerce capabilities, and all sorts of other advanced features that will set you back tens of thousands of dollars.
Hosting: This is where the bulk of the cost of your new website actually resides.
What clients usually need from a web design company?
The answer is… A Good Web Designer! The client doesn’t necessarily need someone to set up a web server for them, install WordPress on it for them, or anything else like that. What they DO need is a good designer who will create a functional, eye-catching website for them.
Website Design Is NOT A Business… It’s An Art Form! As far as I’m concerned, there are only two types of people who can legitimately call themselves “web designers”:
Type #1: These are the people who have a few basic HTML/CSS skills and are happy to create a simple, functional website for their clients at an average cost of $5,000 to $10,000.
Type #2: These are the people who have advanced HTML/CSS skills, a thorough knowledge of web programming languages, and a passion for creating truly outstanding websites for their clients at a cost that is many times higher than what Type #1’s charge.
