Development related questions

There’s not one single answer to this question. A website design is quoted based on the needs of each individual project. Every website is unique and requires different components; we design and develop custom websites specifically for your small business. We’ll ask a lot of questions, assess your needs, and give you a quote based on that assessment. Most of our sites run in the R5,000 – R10,000 range, but can be more or less depending on needs.

On average, we shoot for a six to eight week turnaround, but the pace of any project is set by each client. How much input you can provide during the initial stages, your availability with feedback, how soon the content is ready – all this affects the speed of completion. The functionality needs may also play a role – more complex sites will take more time to develop.

No. Although WordPress is our preferred choice and it is a  great content management system. We also create websites on Opencart, Prestashop and Joomla. 

Yes! We love it when our clients take control of their website and learn to manage it on their own. We’ll provide you with a training session to help get you on your way.

We can! We provide on-going support for many of our clients.

Absolutely! Having a mobile-friendly website is more important than ever! We work hard to ensure your website looks great on a variety of devices. 

We offer a variety of payment options, varying from a one-time, up-front payment to 50% up-front the balance on completion or 3 monthly payments. We understand that this is a big investment and want to help you budget for the expense in whatever way possible.
