Frequently Asked Questions
I'm new to websites. What goes into creating one?
We are glad you asked! Well, there’s quite a lot that goes into creating a website, which is why we have dedicated a full page to our web design process. Make sure you check it out. If you’ve got any questions, feel free to send us a message.
How much does a website cost?
It’s best to think of a website as buying a new home. Your website is an online home for your business. As such, the price can vary a lot depending on many factors. Our website projects start from $1500 for a basic setup and upwards depending on your unique requirements. Whether you need a basic website, eCommerce store or the best of the best, we have website packages to suit.
How long does it take to create a website?
A basic business website normally takes 4 weeks to complete. However, it really depends on the complexity of your website and the quality of content that you already have ready to go.
What content do I need to have ready to go?
Before we begin work on developing your website, you will need to have your content ready to go. This normally includes: text content (copywriting), logo and images. If you don’t have your content ready, then we can help at an extra cost. But be prepared for an intense questionnaire that allows us to extract all the necessary information out of you!
Can you get my website ranked at #1 on Google?
Getting to that #1 rank on Google can be easy or difficult, happen quickly or over many months. It’s all about what you want to get ranked for. Getting you ranked at #1 for your business name is relatively easy. But ranking for a competitive phrase like ‘ web design geelong’ is more difficult. We will consult you on the best strategy following our in depth keyword research for your particular industry. Keep in mind that the more competitive a keyword or keyword phrase, the more difficult it is to organically rank for.
Will my website be mobile friendly?
All of our website projects are designed to be responsive across all devices. Having a responsive website aka mobile friendly website is critical for user experience and improving your SEO and search engine rankings.
Do you create eCommerce websites aka online stores?
Yes we do! Creating eCommerce websites aka online stores is one of our specialties. There’s a fair bit of work that goes into them, but we absolutely love it!
What is SEO?
SEO aka Search Engine Optimisation is the process of optimising your website so that Google thinks it is the most relevant piece of content for a particular search query (query meaning the thing you are Googling).
What is a domain name?
A domain name aka URL is your online address. For example, our domain name is webcreationstudios.com.
What is hosting?
Simply put, website hosting is where your website files live. A great analogy is to think of your website like a house. Your domain name aka URL is like your street address while your hosting is like your actual house, where you live.
Do I need my own domain name and web hosting?
Yes. You will need your own domain name and hosting. These are not included in our pricing considering they are ongoing costs. If you haven’t purchased any yet, we highly recommend SiteGround for small business startups and WP Engine for those with a bigger budget. It’s probably best to contact us first though!
Can you teach me how to make changes to my website?
We offer a ‘website care plan’ so you don’t have to worry about making changes or managing your site. But if you do want to learn, we are more than happy to put together a tutorial video that walks you through the basics of managing your new website.
