Powered by WordPress
What makes your website so easy to use, yet fully capable?
It’s powered by WordPress, the web’s leading Content Management System (CMS).
WordPress has become the platform of choice for millions (74.6 million give or take) of website owners, because it makes it incredibly easy to make updates to your own website, without having to touch any code or know any programming. Whether you’ve used WordPress before, or you’re completely new, you’ll find it easy to get started with managing your own website.
As professional web designers, we’ve been recommending and implementing WordPress websites for our clients for years. So when we set out to create an all-in-one website solution for our customers, choosing to power it with WordPress was a no-brainer.
A New Concept in WordPress Websites
So what sets us apart from other WordPress-powered websites?
Well, typically, the process of setting up a WordPress website involves quite a bit of legwork: You would need to get your own hosting service, then install WordPress on your server. You’d search for a theme or hire a designer to create one for you. Finally, you would need to add plugins and make modifications to fit your needs. This can all be quite time-consuming and costly.
“Our aim is to streamline this process, lower your costs,
and give you everything your business needs in one easy to use package”
First, it’s a hosted service, so once you sign up, your WordPress website is immediately up and running. Next, we give you a selection of beautifully designed templates (themes), to choose from. Finally, we custom tailor the features to perfectly suit the needs of your business.
You get the keys to your new site so you can make all your own changes yourself including adding new pages, photos, products etc etc. but, we know you need to get on with business and the one thing we don’t want is for your new site and marketing tool to be out of date, so, all you have to do is send us your information you need changed, added or deleted and we do it…no problem.
That’s not all. Normally you are responsible for making sure your site is backed up in case of failure, hacking or corruption. We take daily backups of your site and keep up to 5 backups at a time so if for any reason your site goes down we can have it back up and running within hours.
We include everything below…and more to come!
Your success is our success. We do everything to make sure your site looks great and most importantly works to achieve your goals, not just for now, but for years to come.

The theme you choose for your web site will likely have to be modified to suit your own business requirements. This could include changing the layout or colours and removing or adding some elements.

SEO is Search Engine Optimisation. It is the process of making sure your web site comes up when your potential customer searches for what it is you offer.
We use state of the art software and practices to get your site to the top of the search engines and we provide monthly reports on how you are going. If you need to promote a special event or service we do that for you also.
✔ Customer Finding Service
Let’s say your a truck repair business in Toowoomba. It’s probably safe to say that your customers and potential new customers are people that own trucks! both owner drivers and larger businesses.
We would assemble a list of most transport and associated businesses in your immediate and surrounding areas.
Where available the email addresses would be put into an email marketing system (see next item) and a schedule of promotional emails are sent out to promote your business, service, sale etc. We keep scheduling this type of communication including special offers, events, new services etc.
There will be businesses that don’t have an advertised email or who don’t want any email communication or, larger businesses where email just doesn’t get to the right person. In this case we design and make up physical mail outs to go out as direct mail.
Note that we can organise printing, and mailing but mail and printing costs etc is not included in this service.
All mailings and who they go to are approved by you before anything happens.
✔ Automated Email Marketing Setup
Sending large volumes of email can be time consuming and detrimental to your bandwidth and resources. We set up your own email marketing system using one of the worlds premier services used by over 7 million customers.
We can tell you who opened your email, what links they clicked on and who just junked it without opening, this information is invaluable to know who is interested and who isn’t.
Note that this is a third party service and sending rates are free if you have less than 2000 in your list and you can send up to 12000 emails per month.
We would like to get you many many more potential customers in your list beyond 2000 but this volume is perfect for testing the waters to prove that this form of marketing is both beneficial and profitable. Additional costs when your list increases are quite nominal but are not included with this service.
✔ Print Marketing
Where we can’t find a business email address, website or fax number we create a physical mailing to be sent out. We design and create the mail piece, provide address label data and can even organise the printing and delivery for you.
Please note that the cost of printing and mailing is not included. If it is a short run of mail outs it can easily be done on your own printer or photo copier, or outsourced to your local print shop. Short run mail outs usually involve stamped mail. If you’re planning on a large mail out then a service such as Australia Post or Salmat etc. will be the most cost effective. We can organise all of this or do the short run set up ourselves if you prefer. We are happy to quote you on print and mail costs.
✔ Social Media Set Up
Are you on social media, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter? Great we will make sure your site connects and interacts with it. If not, we will at least set you up with Facebook. Love it or hate it, people (your potential customers) use it.

Why is our price so
In the old days when I first started in IT, Web Design was magical. There was no such thing as a content management system, you had to code in HTML and PHP and a few other languages and when something got updated, your site broke, so costs were expensive and you needed actual computer programmers to build and maintain your web site.
As everything became standardised and systems became available to manage your own web site, it got a lot easier and soon we had online web companies offering FREE, EASY to build sites. These are neither free nor easy, and regular web companies tried to cling to their old pricing regimes.
Nothing is for free. I don’t believe I know of any philanthropic web companies. The free sites are very limited and I would stake my reputation to say they are next to useless for business thus you need to upgrade for a price and keep upgrading to get what you need.
As for easy, even WordPress which is our preferred platform can be frustrating, that is why we offer to do EVERYTHING for you as part of our pricing, its our knowledge and experience that make a difference.
So. We recently abandoned the old way which was; quoting on work, doing the work, deciding if the customers changes were in the specification and needed price adjusting, hand coding etc etc etc.
We decided to offer a platform for web development (WordPress) and just include everything for you. One price no options or packages to consider, no surprises…just EVERYTHING included for you.
