Services, process and discounts
WordPress is a website content manage system. It is considered the most used and supported content management system currently in use. Websites running content management systems can be technically managed in the background by an experienced administrator and content can be easily added and edited by users without having to gain a skill level much higher than needed for most social media platforms. This makes them a great choice for a website you can add to or update easily without having to worry about all the technical stuff.

If adding or editing content is infrequent, it may be more cost effective to have your site managed than maintain site management skills for yourself or staff.
If you are managing your own content and find online support documents a bit daunting or you are stuck, I can provide training either one on one or in small groups to help you get started or get you over a bump. These are usually online & teleconference but in person may be possible in some situations
Domain registration support
Having your own domain name requires finding a registry, choosing names and extensions, registering and pointing the name to your host. This can be straight forward for some, but not for everyone. I can walk you through this or in some cases set it up for you.
Email addresses @yourdomain
There are plenty of great free email services out there, but usually they require the use of the providers domain. There are also services which can be set up to use your own domain for a fee. I can help set up email addresses using your domain
No Obligation Consultation
Here we can discuss your vision and ideas and look at what I can do to meet these. There is no obligation or cost to this apart from your time. You may decide to go ahead or not and that is ok, as long as you get value from the consultation. Or from our discussion you may gain insights that lead you going in a completely different direction altogether.
Discounts - cumulative up to 60%
Beyond our already affordable rates, I will discount further when you:
- take up more than one service (2 services -10%, 3 services -15%, 4+ services -20%)
- have ethical content to your project or your identity or community are unjustly marginalised -20% (Please discuss eligibility)
- Your NFP, Social entrepreneurial start-up is unfunded -20%
- or your content identifies with an event related promo
Let's get an idea of your vision and how we can best represent or actualise that online. We can brainstorm this together and work out what we need to pull it all together
I create an overview of your site (online or offline) to share with you so you can get a better idea of what it might look like in the real-online world.
We make changes to the site or plan to better suit your vision. This may also happen on an ongoing basis for continual improvement
When you are happy with your site or plan we release it into the wild (making it live on the net)
I provide documentation, training and ongoing support & maintenance as required to help you evolve your site as you or your organisation evolves.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why are your prices so low?
This service is currently only myself, a sole trader working from home and as such there are no extra overhead costs for me for hiring staff, commuting and renting & operating a premises. These savings to me can be passed on to you
In return for providing this service, I receive fulfillment of sense of purpose, not needing extra profit to fund fulfilment elsewhere.
Purpose of service
It is a purpose of this service to make an online presence for ethical projects and marginalised groups more accessible. A lower cost increases this accessibility.
What are your timeframes?
If you have all the content you want on your site ready, a live site can be made in a few days. More practically though there are a number of iterations or tweaks and each may take a few days. A month is a good timeframe to plan for but if you’d like sooner that should be quite possible. Please contact me to discuss
Can you develop larger sites
Yes, larger sites are possible, but I would be reluctant to take on a large project if it means risking availability to offer support and meet timeframes of existing projects. For example, a complex social media site may be too large in most cases but an online store may be possible. Please cntact me to discuss.
