I greatly value her expertise and contribution to the business.

John Halkett Co-publisher | Timber & Forestry Enews

We love our new website (www.fulltilt.com.au)! Adriana was so good to work with from start to finish. She even travelled all the way up to Gympie to meet us and work out what we wanted from our website. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they happily worked with us on all our fussy requests 🙂 I would highly recommend SunCoast Media to anyone looking at building a new website. Their prices are very affordable for a new business starting out too. Thanks again SunCoast Media, it really was a pleasure doing business with you!

Amanda Ryan | Full Tilt Equipment

Sunshine Coast

If you are a business that is looking for that personal service from a web designer, where you feel heard and understood. Look no further than Adriana at SunCoast Media. I had tried 3 different web design companies prior to SunCoast Media. I felt that they all did not listen, charged me for stuff that I didn’t ask for, & did not provide me with stuff that I had asked for at very inflated prices that completely blew out.

Talk to a real person, not a robot who works with you to create the best outcome for your website (www.mooloolabacanalcruise.com) and ultimately enhances your business, so that it can grow and prosper. SunCoast Media have some very attractive web design packages to suit whatever you are looking for, and they will even customise them further if need be. Go on, give them a call? You won’t be disappointed.

Jo | Mooloolaba Canal Cruise

It was so easy and fun working with Adriana. She is such a lovely and warm person. Adriana has such a gift in understanding what your need is and creating exactly what you want. I am so grateful I have found SunCoast Media. Adriana went above & beyond to make sure my website www.lokahiway.com.au was everything I had hoped for and it is!! Thank you so much.

Scope of Web Design Services Sunshine Coast

SunCoast Media takes a wholistic approach to web design & developmentChoose your web design package. We strive to understand your market, your audience & your core business drivers in-depth, so that we can correlate every design and engineering decision directly back to helping you achieve your business goals.

We are believers in the power of collaboration. The more fluid our communications, the more powerfully we can achieve your goals.

To deliver this outcome,our process has five stages:

1. Research

We begin by performing a rigorous audit of your market space. Who is the core audience? What are their concerns and values?

The first step is we need to thoroughly understand your business, your business goals, your customers, their expectations and behaviour, and then how your website factors into all of it.

We’ll also look at the competitive landscape to establish context and benchmarks for how your site should function and then improve on that. This will give us a foundation for moving forward with just the right recommendations for the web design and development of your new responsive website.

2. Prototyping & Web Design

Sunshine Coast

Prototyping involves rapid & collaborative iteration on wireframe concepts, layouts & directions.

Once we’ve agreed on finalised prototypes we’ll create high fidelity mockups of the final product with dummy text.

We’ll set to work sketching out interface layouts for 3-5 different views, including the home page, sub page, the blog template (if applicable), and any additional page templates needed.

3. Web Development

Once you’ve approved the design, we’ll start building them.

4. WordPress Integration

After testing the static layouts, we integrate the new designs with your current WordPress theme.

To do this we’ll need to mirror your live site in a development environment, then we will test the site across different browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer 9+) and devices (iPhone 4S, Galaxy II). Any bugs that arise from this testing will be fixed prior to launch.

5. Website Launch & Measure

Finally, we  go live to the world and measure the return on investment for you, with detailed analytics.

The launch process is a carefully considered one. We need to ensure email addresses don’t go down, the site doesn’t have any downtime, any old links are re-directed to the new pages and several other things.

This is something we’ve done hundreds of times before. We operate to a checklist which we’ve curated over the years and it’s not failed us once.

We always launch late on a Friday night to give us the best chance of getting any issues ironed out. You can sleep easy knowing we’ll be on-call over your launch weekend to ensure everything goes according to plan.

Web Design Sunshine Coast Process Stages

Although there are a lot of web design companies, highly experienced ones follow the same basic steps.

If you are planning to order a website, here are the basic steps for the design and hosting of your website.

There are several steps involved in creating a website.

There are several steps involved in creating a website. We probably cannot emphasis a customers involvement enough. Not only that your website should be aesthetically pleasing, functional  and professional but you should love your website. Too much? Maybe a little. We say this because if you are in love with your website you will want to create articles, insert images as well as produce and then showcase your videos. Website should be treated as a central online platform.

Remember, you are in total control of your website, as you collect a following you will have full access to email addresses and contact details you gather. It’s you who is in charge of your contacts not Facebook or other platforms.

This is very important to remember, if you build a following on Facebook for example and Facebook changes one of their algorithms in the future you will lose some of that following there is nothing you will be able to do about it. If you have a website you can collect your own following by asking people to subscribe.   

Domain Name

The website design process begins with a good domain name. There are several factors involved. Choose something catchy & easy to remember.

Sometimes it is beneficial to add your location. You may provide your domain name or brainstorm with your website designer to create one. It is better to use a domain name that explains the purpose of the website.       

Web Design Brief

Give a brief on the purpose of your website and how you want it to work. Think about what kind of services would you like to include in your website design. Is it going to be a one-page website or a small website? The purpose of the site will also determine its design, what plugins would be used to showcase your organisation, and individual features. In other words, the brief should be a clear description of the purpose of the website and how it will work. We also recommend to search the net for things you like in the website and things you dislike.

Website build

Based on the specific website brief, a completed design is presented to clients online. What follows is often the longest part of the process as it may require substantial back and forth between designer and client. The aim being to ensure customer satisfaction, but don’t worry I’ll walk you through this process.

The structure of any website is of considerable importance as the easier it is for Google bots to crawl through the higher the site will rank.

Content insertion

After the design process, content is inserted to all appropriate pages of the website. Typically I’ll ask you to prepare content for your website, as generally The best person to write about your business is you. This is a vital part of the website.

Remember, all marketing and SEO techniques can only bring visitors to your website when you have quality content.     

Initial SEO

These days, developing and hosting your website is only half the job. It simply must be optimised for search engines as there are thousands of websites competing in every niche. Ideally you need to begin to optimise your website even before you launch it. That is why initial Search Engine Optimisation is offered with each of our web packages.

Going Live

This is the final stage. When the initial SEO activities are completed, you can now have your website hosted by a reputable web host with high redundancy. This means that your web host should have multiple backup servers to retrieve your data quickly in case is of any loss.

Content for the website

SunCoast Media will lay the content provided and images as well as create every page that is required and agreed upon.

*Please note that content is to be provided by the client. We understand that this might not be your cup of tea. That is why we also provide copy writing services by engaging professional copy writers. The additional cost per page is $120 (brief is incuded).

Homepage

Solid call to action attracting email subscribers from which a slow burn relationship will be formed.

About

We suggest new team photos and action shots of people working.
These are great and far better than stock photos.

Case Studies

Listing clients are great, testimonials are better but giving it some context in a case study is considerably better.
A range of case studies will serve you for years to come.

Services

This should be split up into the primary reasons people buy your services, with labeled headers to match.
For example ‘Bookkeeping’, ‘Saving Tax’ and ‘Audits’. Doing this means people can relate your headers to solutions to their problems in a fast and effective manner.
z

Call to Action

We’ll strategically place a contact form at the bottom of each page that makes sense.
h

Process

How do you work? What’s required of your clients? It’s worth detailing your process in advance

Pricing

It’s worth giving an indication of your pricing. This will typically reduce the number of enquiries but increase the quality a huge amount.

Resources

In this day and age, it’s vital to give away content and advice in advance in order to “win people over” that you’re the right company for the job. Frequently asked questions from the kinds of clients you want more of is a great place to start when thinking about what content to produce.

Time Line

How long will the whole process take? There is a lot to take into consideration: Research, Wireframes, Sitemap design, Initial Designs, Design Revision, Design Approval, Coding, CMS & configuration, Testing & Debugging, Client Testing, Setup, and finally taking the website live!

We endeavour to have template & pages ready and this will depend on which package you have chosen. Normally for the small website design it will be between 10-14 days, after that if provided content and images are supplied by you, We will have a website ready for final approval in 3 days.

Choosing affordable web design Sunshine Coast

Do you need to compromise on quality if choosing affordable website design and what to look for?

Affordable Web Design has often gotten a bad reputation. Sadly sometimes deserved. We think the reason is that people don’t differentiate between the positive and negative connotations in how the phrase “Cheap Websites Sunshine Coast” can be interpreted.

Cheap is a loaded word. Or maybe it is that sometimes the outcome doesn’t contain the full load expected. “What did they shave off?” is what one should ask on a cheaper product (or service).

One major reason that websites were costly in the early days was that there was a lot to do. Even an agency offering cheap websites needed to have a lot of staff to build everything from scratch. Specialists in each arena, filling chairs, adding to the bill no matter the workload. Things got shaved off to offer cheap web design.

Many agencies still charge this way even though they use the same infrastructure that is available to all on the open market (WordPress, Servers etc.). Whilst there is still a very valid reason for agencies, when the business needs a lot of custom work in several disciplines and wants someone else to stage manage it all, the reality is that most businesses can benefit far more from hiring smaller.

Every good business needs a website, and not just any website, one that captures the viewer’s attention and keeps them glued to your site, promoting views and ensuring the sale of one or more product or services.

Getting a good website is no easy to achieve, but everyone wants it anyway. The desperation of certain people and limited funds can lead to them settling for a cheap website and not one that is affordable. Before we begin, however, let’s find out what these terms mean:

In plain terms, a cheap web design has little to do with price. It’s all about the mindset. Yes, we know that several new businesses are not very big on funds, but you can still get a good quality website for your business. Cheap web design is a choice you make. Due to the funds you have, you choose to contact a web designer to build you a sub-par website all in a bid to save cost. There are a couple of reasons why people search for cheap web design.

They are trying to work within their budget

Without a doubt, a lot of people who search for cheap web designers fall into this category. Several people have dreams of starting up their own business, but when the funds are tight, what do they do? Bear in mind, that “cheap” is relative. A $1,000 – $1,500 website may be seen as cheap to some people, but to others, it can be very expensive. Even website design that costs $450 can still be expensive for some people. On that note, they just rely on Google to give them what they can afford.

They do not understand website design and its offers

There are still individuals who care less about the kind of website they are set up with. Their major aim is to have a website running, any website, and they are not willing to pay more than they feel it is worth it. A lot of work is put into building a website, and for those who don’t know its worth, it has no business being expensive.

They search for desperate web designers

Even though there are people who genuinely cannot afford a standard, good quality website, there are some individuals who prey on desperate web designers. A lot of competition exists in the web design industry. And for this, there are web designers who are willing to accept paltry sums just to keep themselves in a house or provide themselves with basic needs. The ones who are willing to accept low prices for a website are desperate for work.

Reasons why people source for cheap web design

Having known what a cheap website design is about, you can have a better view of what an affordable website entails. It is not necessarily expensive. It is simply getting worth for your money. Whether it is £1,000 or more, the major thing is to get quality work. There are affordable web designers that charge reasonable prices for a good website, and also pay attention to what is important in a website.

Now the question is, how can you tell the difference between a cheap and an affordable website.

Differences between cheap web design and affordable web design

It is important to have in-depth knowledge of the differences between a cheap website design and an affordable one, to avoid cheated or given a substandard job. The differences are as follows:

There is no interest on the designers part

Simply put, a cheap web designer wants the money and nothing else. They are not interested in finding out what your business is all about. They don’t care about your goals, your business idea or what you hope to show your viewers when they click on your site, and neither do they care about building long term business relationships with you. To them, all they need to do is make a couple of clicks on their computer, set up a homepage with few interesting links to click on and get paid. In the end, you are left to deal with the mess they have made.

They cut corners

They do a lot of work, or so it seems, but they leave a lot of things undone or halfway completed. Besides causing a huge inconvenience for you, they put you in a position where you either have to call them back, which ultimately means more money, or you hire someone else to fix things. Either way, you end up spending more money.

They do not include SEO

The importance of SEO in a business website and in general, cannot be overemphasised. This is the one way your business gets views, clicks and recognition. Without SEO, you are practically invisible to the people who may need your services. A cheap web design does not include those vital things like SEO. Just like a vehicle without an engine, your business has no chance of going anywhere without SEO.

How does affordable web design help?

For the sake of your business, you would have to do what it takes to give it room for growth by getting it enough recognition. A cheap design may seem like it is doing just that, but it isn’t.

    affordable vs cheap websites

    Here’s how affordable web design Sunshine Coast fixes things

    1. Getting an affordable web design will guarantee you quality website at an affordable price
    2. The price of the website will depend on its size and functionality. Good and affordable web designers will bundle services with it if need be, delivering the clients everything they need at a package price
    3. Finally, good and affordable web designers focus on SEO and the website as a whole, with extras like social media marketing and email marketing being part of the whole package.
    4. As a business owner, your focus shouldn’t just be to get the website at any price. Your website should be handled by someone who knows what they are doing and not just for the money. With the right price, you can get a good quality website up and running.
