Web Design Questions

Websites pricing is highly variable as there are many factors that come into play that affect the total website cost. We offer a free website strategy session to all clients to put together a formal website quote. The session typically goes for an hour and in this time we ask a series of questions that allow us to better understand your business, goals, and needs.

To give a very rough guide to pricing an average 6 page website starts at $4000.

The website design process varies in length based on a number of factors. The biggest dictating factors are the website size and how long it takes the client to supply the necessary website copy (text).
In general, the quicker the client can respond to questions and provide necessary content (text and images if/when needed) and provide feedback / approval of designs, the quicker the project can be completed.

As a rough guide a standard custom designed 6 page website takes 6-8 weeks to design, develop and launch.

Yes we do! To help our clients with their cash flow requirements we offer interest free payment plans. Payment plans are set up based on the specific needs of each client, but generally involve an up front deposit and the remainder paid off over 3 to 6 months.

If you’re interested in a payment plan please contact our team and we can discuss your needs.

Yes, all of our websites are designed and developed by our team here in Australia. We do not outsource our websites to cheap, low quality, offshore developers.

Yes, once final payment for the website has been made you will be supplied with all logins to your website and servers. You will own your website outright and are free to do with it as you please.

Yes, in most cases you will need to supply the text (copy) for your website. We offer copywriting services however many industries have specific terminology and information that needs to be promoted through your copy and it is generally best that the business owner supplies the copy for this reason.

If you feel you need help with your copy you can supply it to our team and we can make edits to better suit the website.

Your web designer will guide you through the copywriting process and supply you with all the information you need during your website design brief if you decide to have a website built by The Honest Agency.

Yes, websites require ongoing maintenance to remain secure, fast, and functional. Compare your website to a car. Without regular servicing your car will eventually grind to a halt, or things will start to break. Websites are exactly the same.

We offer website care plans that involve the team here at The Honest Agency making regular updates to your website and all connected plugins.

Yes, once your website has been designed, developed, and then launches, you are able to make changes to it yourself. We offer training services if you would like us to teach you how to use your website, however it is important to keep in mind that you will only be able to make minor changes to the website such as changing text or basic image changes.

Yes, once your website has been paid for and has been put live we will supply you with full administrator privileges and supply all logins to your server and website.

When having your website built by The Honest Agency we will supply you with a list of login details and information that you need to supply. This will vary from customer to customer, however all customers will need to supply:

Logins to your domain name provider if you have an existing domain name (e.g Crazy Domains, GoDaddy etc).
Logins to your server and website if you have an existing website.

If you are unsure of where to find these logins, your previous developer or hosting provider will be able to supply you with the information you need.

If you get really stuck and cannot find the logins you need, we can help you track down the best person to contact in order to get the necessary logins.

Yes, we supply mobile friendly website designs to all clients as this is very necessary in today’s smartphone centric society. Your website will work on all modern smartphones, tablets and web browsers as outlined in the quote you will be supplied.

Yes, if you want to be able to make changes to your own website we supply paid website training sessions that can be carried out at a time that suits your schedule. Training sessions generally range from 1-2 hours based on the size and functionality of your website. 

It is very important to keep in mind that we cannot teach you how to become a web designer within a 1-2 hour training session. We will only show you how to make basic changes such as altering text, changing basic imagery, adding blog posts, checking enquiries, and using your ecommerce platform if you have an ecommerce website.

For more advanced website changes we can quote you on a case by case basis, or you can enter into one of our care plans that include a monthly allocation of design and development work that can be used as needed.

A website alone will not make sales for your business. You can build the most beautiful website in the world, but if no one knows it exists and no one visits it, no sales will come through the door.

Your website needs to be fed users from your marketing efforts. We offer online marketing services to drive the right type of people to your website including SEO, Google Ads, and Social Media Management. We can also help you build a mailing list that you can use to connect with potential clients and push your products or services to.

Once you have the right type of clients visiting your website it is the job of your website to convert these users into paying customers.

We build all of our website on WordPress.

No, we only build our websites using WordPress.

No, we only develop websites that are designed by our team in house. In short graphic designers are not web designers, it is a completely different skill set. To get the best results your website needs to be designed and developed by a professional web focused team who know what they are trying to achieve and who know how to meet your goals.

No, we only design and develop complete websites. If you have a website that is half finished by yourself or another developer we advise that you start again from scratch and have the website designed and developed properly.

Half finished websites can be a minefield due to poor coding, cheap plugins, poor design, and it often ends up taking longer to finish half a website than to start from scratch because of the problems that arise from developers not doing things right to begin with.

A website by default will not rank well on Google without proper SEO setup being performed. SEo setup involves setting up the website to meet Google requirements and then submitting the website to Google to let them know it exists.

We offer SEO setup as a service and recommend that all websites are properly setup to be found online. What’s the point in having a beautiful new website if no one can find it?

Online Marketing Questions

Yes, we provide a range of online marketing services including SEO, Google Ads, and Social Media Marketing. It is very important that your target market can find you online and that you have marketing driving users to the website if you’re looking to land sales and enquiries.

Hosting & Email Questions

Website hosting is required to have your website shown online and accessible by the public. Effectively your website sits on a server that is accessed by users browsing the internet who want to view your website.

We charge monthly hosting fees in order to have your website live as servers cost money to run and maintain.

We do not launch our websites to servers that are not managed by The Honest Agency. Servers vary widely in performance and accessibility making it hard to know exactly how a specific server will respond when a website is launched.

Our servers are high speed Australian based units and we have full access to all the features needed to launch and manage your website overtime. Launching to external servers always comes with an associated risk and we choose not to risk the website launch going wrong due to problems outside of our control.

If you would like to launch to an external server we can complete your website on our own servers and you can find another provider who is willing to migrate the website to their servers.

If you wish to enter into a care plan / maintenance plan with the Honest Agency we require your website is hosted on our servers to ensure we can make all necessary updates and maintain a secure and efficient website.

A domain name is the URL that your website is connected to e.g “www.yourbusiness.com.au”. A domain name is required to have your website live on the internet.

If you don’t already have a domain name we can purchase one for you and connect your new website to it.

Yes, all websites require a domain name to be live to the public on the internet. You can also have your emails connected to your domain name.

If you don’t already have a domain name we can purchase one for you and connect your new website to it.

Yes, we can setup email accounts for you as long as you are hosted on our servers. Simply let us know what email addresses you would like setup and we can accommodate your needs.
