What platforms do you use for websites?
For Informational sites, we use WordPress, an open source content management software and currently powers around 25% of all websites on the Internet. The project is contributed to by tens of thousands of developers all over the world and is growing from strength to strength. WordPress allows us to develop flexible and customisable websites to modern standards and observes web development best practices. Furthermore the community of web developers that use WordPress reaches far and wide and allows us to tap in to this collective intelligence and bring that wealth of experience to your project.
We also use BigCommerce and Shopify for online shops. These platforms are specifically designed for e-commerce. Both are all-in-one, fully hosted e-commerce solution that come with a robust set of tools for managing your online store. This means that they already come with essential features that you could activate without paying extra to your developer, including extra plugins for different methods of shipping, payment, selling on Facebook and Ebay and many more. Their out of the box features mean you can turn them on and off in the future when you are ready.
WHAT IS DISCOVERY BLUE PRINT?
Discovery Blue Print is your take-out that will help you get more clarity for your business. For each project, we kick start by facilitating our clients to dig deeper to actually uncover the business maps (which includes real market you want to target, the benefit you want to offer them, the emotion we want to gain and work on a communication strategy to help you achieve your goals).
We start by identifying your why, who, what your real objectives are and work on the how. You will get your brand Map & Positioning report to help you tailor your digital marketing journey.
What happens if I want to add some features to the website while you’re building it?
Whilst we like to be flexible and responsive to your needs, we also like to deliver what we promise within the time frames and budgets we have allowed.
If you ask us to add new features to your website while we are building it, will most likely ask why? If we all agree that your new request will help us achieve our objectives then we will be more than happy to oblige.
If your new feature is something you would like to add to your website but is not directly tied to your original objectives then we will suggest to schedule it for a second iteration of the website once it has been launched.
This will require a new proposal.
How long does It take to make a website?
Each project is different and it is a collaboration, so your availability is key as well as mine. Once you decide to go ahead with the booking, we will send you project timeline so you know what to expect and what is expected from you.
We work on tight deadline. We understand that sometimes things don’t go out of plan, but any delay from your side might means that the project will need to be rescheduled around our existing projects at the time.
If for any reason you become unreachable within your design period you’ll have the opportunity to reschedule within 3 months. As your booking is a priority in my calendar there will be a $250 reschedule fee.
What do i need to provide to get started?
Before we can start your website, we will need your content before we get started. This includes all of your text content, photos, products, pages and anything that will be used as part of the website.
We will also need elements of your branding if we are not helping you with the branding.
To receive your content we will send you a content planner and will store all your files in the portal and we can keep it all nice and organised together.
If you are unable to create this content, we have a network of photographers and copywriters that we can recommend to do this for you.
Do you host your clients' websites?
We are not a hosting company but we have a few preferred companies that we can recommend. We would prefer you to set up your own hosting and domain, so you have the ownerships of them.
As such, if you have issues on hosting or downtime, the best place to get help and support for these services is directly from your service provider.
If your website is powered by BigCommerce & Shopify: They are your software provider, so if you find any troubleshooting or technical support, contacting their support desk is the best place to get help.
WHAT is your technical support
We would love you to feel confident using your website!
Just like your smartphone and computer software needs updating, so does your website More importantly, though, your website is a crucial part of your business and therefore requires extra care to make sure it continues to perform its functions.

How long will it take to appear at the top of Google?
The time it takes for your website to appear on page 1 of Google depends on a number of factors. It depends on the search phrase people are using to find your website and the number of other websites that are also available for those search phrases.
Nobody can truly say how long it will take for your website to appear at the top of search engine results pages (including people who actually work for Google), however there are a number of factors that can improve your chances.
Our chosen platforms have some great Search Engine Optimisation fundamentals built-in.
