How much does a website cost?

There are many solutions available today for getting a website for your business or organisation. These can range from free sites that you create yourself, to complicated multi-page database powered sites that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to get up & running. Unfortunately there is no 'standard' across the web development industry that dictates how much a website should cost, or what you will receive for your money.

Avoid the cheap & nasty

With so many free options out there, you may ask 'what's the point of using a professional?' Ultimately, if you want a quality website that looks great, is original, consistent with your organisation's branding, AND works well, then you will have to pay for it. There are so many factors that work together to make a website successful - some of which you may not even be aware of, or more importantly, have control over if you use a free website tool. You will save yourself time, money and stress in the long run if you leave the details up to a reputable company such as Design Sense Graphics & Web.

Keeping your website up-to-date - Content Management Systems (CMS)

Keeping the information on your website relevant and up-to-date is extremely important!! Although the thought of this can be daunting, in reality it does not have to be a huge task, and little-to-no technical knowledge is required to achieve this if your website includes a Content Management System built by Design Sense.

What is a CMS?

A Content Management System can be built into your website to allow you to make changes to certain text, images, documents etc. or can be used to manage an online store, blog, calendar etc. Design Sense custom-builds a CMS for each new website, tailoring it to the individual needs of the client. The CMS is very simple and easy to use. Unlike other Website Development providers, the CMS that Design Sense offers does not use a 'back end', but alternatively everything can be edited using the interface and navigation system of the actual website. All you have to do is log in, find the page you want to change, and click 'edit'.

Will my website be found by Google? (About Search Engine Optimisation)

With so many people now searching for services online, it is important that your online presence is professional and stands up against the competition. However, just because you have a website does not guarantee that people are going to find it. There are many factors that can affect your Search Engine Results Page (SERP) Rank, and it can take time for your website to ‘climb up the ladder’.

What is my SERP Rank?

Whenever someone conducts a Google (or any other search engine) search, the result page will show a list of links to web pages that relate to the words that were entered in the search. These links are displayed in order of relevance based on a series of factors such as your website content, page description, number of pages in your site and incoming links. The higher up the list a website is displayed, the higher the SERP Rank.
