Simon – I’m a results oriented, tech-savvy guy who has over 2 decades of experience in IT consulting, business systems and process anaylsis, and software design, programming, development, implementation, training and support. I’ve worked in Australia, the USA and the UK, on large and complex implementations, for many blue chip companies (Eg. Orica, Shell, Cadbury Schweppes, Atomic Energy Agency of the the UK, McKesson USA, Pacific Gas and Electric) and of course for business owner/operators in Australia.
Now, away from the shackles of the big corporates and red tape – working with small to medium sized organisations is my focus. Building, enhancing and integrating WordPress websites that help businesses achieve the online impact they desire – is what I do!
Your website build is NOT getting outsourced to a unreliable low quality code-farm!
I (Simon, the company co-owner and director) will be working for you.
Small to Medium sized projects are our focusThe costs for every new project, or updates and enhancements to your existing site are estimated on a case by case basis. We can also work to stay within your specified budget or on a retainer.
To give you a guide – typical new website costs ($AUD) where you have most of the base content are:
Simple, Small Site: $800 – $2,000
Medium Size Site: $2,000 – $5,000
Larger/Complex Site (eg. with Shop): $5,000+
Copy / Content Creation / Photography: Per Hour rate
SEO / Site Updates / Enhancements / Integrations: Per Hour rate
Other training / consulting: Per Hour rate
Email & Hosting Costs (paid direct to trusted 3rd party companies with my guidance and no add on fees from CCB) : From $200 – $400 per year (budget / business packages, SSL certificates, Email hosting, etc)
Basic Site Maintenance – WordPress/Plugin updates(optional): From $200 per year
From basic, quick, low cost sites with information and a contact form, to much bigger and sophisticated sites with many pages, online product catalogues, project portfolios, and blogs – right through to fully fledged online stores with online payment gateways or member sites and online communities – we can help!
Website design and development: $50 + GST (10% / $5) per hour
All jobs are done on the basis of an estimate, and then charged at actual time and purchases (usually very minimal).
When the job is underway – any changes to the estimates are clearly and honestly communicated before proceeding.
Web and Email Hosting and Themes and Plugins are purchased (with assistance as required) direct by you from those vendors (with no add-on fees).
our Client's Websites
People find businesses and services using the internet.Why waste money on a Yellow Pages advert? Most people no longer receive it, throw it out, or just never use it.
It makes much more sense to get online with your own google optimised web site – and it does not have to be complicated or require much ongoing effort!
