We will register a .co.za or .com domain for you. This annually renewable registration gives you exclusive use of your domain name.

If you already have a domain registered, we can optionally move it to our own hosting for you as part of your added value on this package. If you prefer, we can rather upload the finished site to your own hosting, as long as your hosting service meets certain very basic requirements.
We offer free hosting as standard added value with our website packages. After the free period expires, you’re welcome to renew with us, or we can help you move the site to another host.

We’ll carry out all basic SEO best practices in building your site. Some of the SEO tasks include:
While it’s important to build your site with SEO in mind, getting ranked on search engines does not end with the website build. To get found on Google, and by the right people, you want to carry out an ongoing SEO strategy and produce new content on a regular basis.
- Keyword and competitor analysis
- Keyword strategy
- Content strategy
We’ll carry out more advanced SEO on your site and consult with you on how your site’s ranking and how your competitors are doing.
Having an SSL certificate installed means that your site has been verified as being secure and safe for visitors to browse on. This is good for SEO and also helps build trust with your visitors.
A secured site’s web address will start as https:// rather than the more common http://. Most browsers also show a green padlock alongside the web address, which you should be able to see while on this site.
When people are looking for your business you need to make sure that you can be found. We will verify your business on Google Maps for you so that you can be assured that your business pops up on digital maps and your customers always know where to find you.
Google Analytics is essential for tracking the health of your website. It allows you to track a range of insights into how users find and use your website. This allows us to compile up-to-date and relevant data so that you can effectively tweak your online marketing strategy to increase website traffic and conversions.
Traffic reporting will help you to keep your website running smoothly and efficiently. With this package we will give you three months of personalised traffic reports – customised to suit your business – so that you can keep track of your website’s performance.
As with all our website builds, you get the following features and personal attention to detail.
Custom built & unique
All of our sites are custom built and designed specifically for you. While there are countless free and paid for WordPress themes available, there’s nothing worse than seeing some other company using the same theme as you. With our unique webdesign built from scratch, you can be confident that your site doesn’t have dozens of clones around the internet.
We will work closely with you to determine what it is you need for your website. We don’t believe in cookie-cutter solutions, but would rather adapt what we offer to best suit your specific needs. We will assess your existing online presence, if there is one. We can also look at the opportunities and the competition in your specific field and area so as to best optimise your site for relevant search queries to drive traffic to your site.
Professional editing & proofreading
We have extensive experience in sub-editing and writing, keeping your website free of embarrassing errors.
Although our smaller packages do not include editing and proofreading, we’ll generally correct any mistakes we see in supplied copy. In our larger packages we’ll actively edit and neaten up all written copy. We are also available to write all your original website copy and can even ghost write your blog, should you need help with that.
For more details. please see our content production page.
Easy to update yourself
We build our sites on the popular WordPress content management system. Using WordPress, it is easy to update content yourself with just basic computer skills. Importantly, we don’t restrict your access to the site and we will show you how to access the back end easily yourself.
This way you can easily stay up to date with prices and other information that may change on a regular basis, without having to incur further costs from asking us to do it for you.
If at a later stage you’d like to change the look of your site using someone else, we will also provide them with all the necessary access to make changes to the site.
Mobile responsive sites
With more than three out of four internet users in South Africa now on mobile devices such as phones and tablets, it’s essential that your site looks good and is fully functional when viewed on the smallest to the largest of screens.
If you’re on a phone now, go ahead and rotate your screen and you’ll see how the content adjusts to the width so that there is no text or images running on the sides of your screen. If you’re on computer, just adjust the size of the browser window. As it gets smaller you’ll see elements like the slider and the logo at the top of the page will change and adapt to the different widths.
Many older sites were built before mobile was such a big consideration. If you have an older site, let us take a look and we can rebuild it so that you aren’t losing out on a big chunk of potential traffic.
Search engine optimised
SEO is important. All our sites have at least some of the basics to get you ranked on search engines, with our larger packages having more to boost your rankings. There’s only so much one can do with the build alone. For best results one needs a well thought out content marketing strategy, to produce regular and relevant content. Check out our search engine optimisation (SEO) and content production services for more information on how we can get your website found on Google.
No hidden costs
We’re 100% transparent about all our pricing. We also supply you full access to your site so that you are able to make make basic changes yourself – we don’t believe we should make you pay just because a price or a time has changed. Our basic entry-level packages are all once-off builds without maintenance, while the higher end packages that come with ongoing security, maintenance or content updates have upfront prices without any hidden surprises.
If the gold website package isn’t what you’re looking for, please have a look at our website packages page as well as the rest of our digital marketing packages to see if there’s something that suites you better. Else please contact us and we can come up with a custom solution for you.
