How We Work

Conversations

We'll talk to you to find out who your client base is, and what you most want from a website. We understand you might have detailed plans for your website, or only vague ideas, and we can offer you ideas and options based on either. We can meet you in person in the Central Wellington and Lower Hutt/Petone areas, or Skype all over the world. If you prefer communication by email or text chat, we're very happy to do that as well.

Collaborative

We can build a website for you, but we can also build one with you. Perhaps you're comfortable editing your own content but need some help with the setup and design? Maybe you've built a website but want some custom features? Or perhaps you want to build it all yourself but want some advice on where to start and what tools to use? Our web tailoring service is customisable to your needs. And if you want something outside our skillsets (such as a logo, content editing, or book cover design) we're happy to recommend other professionals who can help out.

Responsive Design

Today's users expect to be able to access your site on the go - and we can help them do that. For us, ensuring your sites display well on phones and tablets as well as on home computers isn't just an optional add on - it's an integral part of every site right from the start. We'll test your site on a variety of devices and ensure it not only works on all of them but looks great at any size. And if you have an existing site that's not looking so good on mobile, we can help with that too.

Analytics

Want to see how many people are visiting your website, track the success of your marketing campaigns, or understand customer behaviour on your site? See where customers drop off in the sales process or look at the effectiveness of advertising with Google Adwords? We can set up and configure Google Analytics to bring you the data specific to your needs, and help you grow your audience.

E-Commerce & Appointment Booking

Still taking orders by email? We can implement effective e-commerce solutions on your website that build customer confidence and enable you to focus less on the admin work of sales and more on your core business. Or perhaps you're selling a service that relies on appointments? Rather than you going back and forth with your clients on availability, with our solutions they can see when you're available and book an appointment in just a few clicks. Get in touch to see how we can tailor solutions to your business.

Fast

We work quickly. Small changes can usually be made same day, and if you need a website urgently we'll do everything we can to have it up and running when you need it. Get in touch for a timeframe estimate.
