Your telephone conversation with Melanie Schoeman and or Francois Marais from Buddy Web Design refers.

1.)  What do you get for R2,500?

An unlimited pages , interactive website, which you can easily update yourself. Training is included in the R2,500 fee.

The monthly hosting starts from R99 ex vat for your own domain name.

2. The Design and Training Process

2.1.) Goal setting and measuring actual results

Look and feel

Most clients want a pretty websites. We will not proceed with the project unless the client is happy with what the website looks like. Included in the R2,500 is some basic design and CSS Stylesheet work. Clients usually supply us with their logo or we use inhouse graphic designers at +- R500 per logo / website banner.

Good quality photographs go a long way in ensuring the website looks pretty and professional.

Fortunately no look and feel is cast in stone and this can be changed at a later stage without having to design a new website or learn a new CMS System.

We will sit down with our client and discuss their specific design needs.

Good Search Engine Results

Our clients will be shown where to access daily website hit reports. It takes between 2 and 6 weeks for Google to index information from websites and to present these to users of such information.

Our clients do not have to guess whether the website is working for them or not. They will know by looking at the number of website visitors, search terms and country hits.

2.2 How search works

We spend quite a bit of time explaining to our clients how search engines work .

Knowledge is power. Google Results / SEO these days mostly depends on our clients own efforts in creating and adding unique, fresh content to their websites.

You need to be unique and original. The amount of effort required largely depends on the competitiveness of the industry.

2.3 How to update your own website

With the end goal in mind, knowing how search engines works , we show our clients onsite how to update their own website.

This is how we accomplish our mission, to assist business owners becoming internet marketers.

3. 20 point website development checklist

 
 
Before you embark on your website development project, whether it is an upgrade or redesign of an existing or a brand new website, ask yourself these 20 questions:
