FAQs – Web Design & Development
How much do you charge for a new website?
We have built hundreds of sites and each one is unique. We customise each project to suit your business needs and budget, so give us a call to get a more accurate estimate.
Consider that the aim of building your website is to get profitable business outcomes. So it’s more an investment than an expenditure. When we get a better idea of what your short and long term goals and priorities are, we could provide more relevant and useful information on benchmarked ROI, conversion rates, and other relevant metrics.
What type of clients do you have experience with?
As professionals we have worked with all sectors – large, medium, and small companies, not-for-profits, and government agencies. We have provided the most value to clients from growing medium-size businesses, start-up companies, and businesses that need a marketing revamp or business boost. Our industry experience includes automotive, business associations, Chinese digital marketing, education, engineering, food and beverage, healthcare, industrial, law, medical aesthetics, not-for-profits, property, printing, professional services, retail, and technology.
Will you change the design if I’m not happy with it?
The answer is Yes because each project comes with scope for refinement. You won’t need too many rounds of changes though. We usually get it right the first time because we ask the right questions up front. We work closely with you to find out what you want, share ideas for strategic planning, and, of course, provide professional design skills.
How long does it take to design and develop my website?
Project completion can take 3 to 6 months. What you want to achieve guides what needs to be built. Timeframe also depends on whether content is supplied or needs to be created.
Our most successful and speedy projects come from great collaboration: between you (the subject matter experts) and us (the digital marketing experts). We love what we do and have a great system and processes for clear communication that drives project progress. Website creation is our forte so you can trust us to do it professionally as your reliable digital marketing partner.
Where are you located?
Our main team is based in Perth, Western Australia, and we also have people in Melbourne and Shanghai. We have successfully delivered projects to clients from Melbourne, Sydney, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore and more.
We welcome clients from any location as our go-getter spirit, robust project management system, and the use of video-conferencing and messaging technology allow us to be responsive and work well with people from different time zones.
Cheech consistently delivered great results when facilitating our SEO Campaign. I would recommend Cheech to anyone looking for strategic SEO and SEM advice and digital marketing services.
