Sole traders who need a brochure-style web presence to advertise their products/services.

Start-ups who need a budget conscious starter website.

Our free search engine submission service will let search engines know that you exist.
We will submit your site to a small cluster of the most important search engines such as Google, Yahoo and MSN.
To greatly enhance the success and coverage of your submissions, an XML sitemap will be created for your site. Google uses XML sitemaps to crawl sites more effectively and it will help your rankings.
All this for nothing! Worth $55
If you are looking for a quick, professional and cost effective website to get your business on the web then our simple sites are what you need. With six templates to choose from there is one that is right for your business.
With prices starting from $990 for a customised six page website with you company's logo, images and text, it is also affordable. We also give you the ability to edit text and images on your site.
First, you will need a domain name and hosting (if you're not sure what these are, then read our quick guide to getting online).
Then you choose a template from our template gallery. We'll ask you to send us your logo (if you have one), any promotional material you already have such as brochures and flyers, colours that you want to use and the text for the pages (if you don't have text then we suggest you take a look at our copywriting info).
We will use your images and info to set up a draft site. We'll also search for some stock images to match your business info. Then we'll ask for your feedback and work together to get the look and feel right for you.
Next comes the important part - the text. There's no point in having a good looking site if you don't have anything to say! We'll add in the text and style it up to look great.
Behind the scenes we will set up your Google Analytics so you can receive statistics on who is visiting your site as well as setting up your contact form so you can receive inquiries from prospective clients.
Once we have your sign-off we'll hand over the site and send you your passwords and links to our video tutorials so you can work on your site yourself (although if you're pressed for time you can always get us to maintain your site for you).
It's that simple!
As soon as we have access to your hosting we'll put up a holding page with your contact details and logo.
If we have all your text and images, contact info, access to your domain name and web hosting panels (or we are arranging these for you) and space in our schedule then we could have a simple site up and running within 24-48 hours. However, a more realistic timeframe which allows time for feedback and changes is between 3-5 working days, longer if you don't get back to us with feedback immediately.
If you want your site up ASAP then make sure to clear space in your schedule to work on the site.
Using SimpleCMS you can update text and images using an easy-to-use website editor. There's no need to install any software - you can edit your site from any computer or even your iPhone.
A simple site is a great way to test the waters on the web, especially if you've never had a site before. You can test how the site works with your business and gauge customer reaction - then use this info when developing a bigger site.
Rest assured that you won't be 'wasting' your time and money by choosing a simple site. If you order a custom site within 12 months of launching your simple site then we'll credit $990 to the cost of upgrading and if it takes you a bit longer (between 12-24 months) then we'll take $500 off.
