Quick & Easy Websites

A quick, easy and affordable website…

As a small business owner, I understand that you may not have big bucks to spend on a shiny new website. That’s why I created these Quick & Easy website packages, specifically designed to get small businesses online fast, without stress and for under $1,000!

But affordable does NOT mean cheap! A Quick & Easy website is carefully customised for each business, optimised for speed and search engine friendly. The result is a smart, attractive and effective website that you can be be proud of!

And best of all, websites come with an easy to use online editor, so you can update the text and images on your site whenever you want. No need to pay more when you want to change some text, or add a few new images to your site.

Check out the plans below for pricing. If none of these plans meet your needs, then you may need a custom built website.

How it works

Kick off

You pay a deposit, sign and return the Work Agreement and choose one of my beautiful handcrafted website designs to base your site on. 

Content & Customisations

You provide your logo, colour scheme, text and images, and let me know any other changes you’d like made to your chosen design.

Development

I register your domain name, build your site and customise your chosen design to your specifications. Build time depends on your chosen plan.

Review

You review and test your draft website and let me know what you’d like changed. The number of rounds of revisions depends on your chosen plan. After revisions are complete, final payment is due.

Launch

I point your domain to your website, so your site will be live on your own domain for the whole world to see! I submit your site to Google, and set up your Google Analytics and Search Console (pro plan only).

Training

We do website training via Skype or phone, where I take you through exactly how to update your website content. Be assured though, I’ll still be available to provide help if you need it!

Your Questions Answered

What type of domain name is included?

I will register the domain name of your choice, so long as its available to be registered. The domain will be registered in your name, with my name listed as the technical contact. This means that you own the domain, not me!

I will keep your domain registration valid for as long as you are using, and paying for, a Quick & Easy website. If you choose to discontinue the service, you will need to maintain the domain registration yourself.

* Please note that special requirements apply to registering a .au  domain names, which you will need to meet. See details.

What if I already have a domain name?

I’ll give you instructions for how you can easily update the settings to point the domain you have registered to your new Quick & Easy website. 

Can I host my Quick & Easy site elsewhere?

No. Part of the reason the Quick & Easy websites are so affordable is that I have everything for them already set up and ready to go on my own server. To have to set this all up on another server/web host would take considerable time, and therefore it does not make it cost effective for me to do so.

If you wish to choose and organise your own web hosting,  you will need a custom built website.

I don't understand some of the terms on this site? Can you explain them?

Sure can! If you’re confused by any of the technical terms or jargon used throughout the site, see my glossary of web design terms for an explanation. 

What forms of payment do you accept?

Bank deposit, and credit cards via Paypal.

What are the ongoing fees?

After the first year, there is a fee of $300 a year. This covers website hosting, domain name renewal fees, work to upgrade and maintain all software running on your website, and license fees for that software. 

An invoice will be emailed to you 45 days prior to the renewal date, and needs to be paid within 30 days to ensure there is no disruption to your website, email or renewal of your domain name.

How do I cancel the service?

If you don’t wish to renew your Quick & Easy website for another 12 months, then simply contact me to let me know. Your website and email will keep working until the end of your current 12 month period. 

What about all the techie details?

Quick & Easy websites are built on WordPress, the world’s most popular website software (it powers around 30% of all websites online), with a popular page builder to make it super easy for even the most non-technical person to use. WordPress has been around for many, many years, and proven itself to be reliable, secure, flexible and extendable, with a huge community of users and developers.

The websites are hosted in the cloud, with data centres in Australia, USA, UK, Europe and Asia. This means your site will load fast for your visitors, no matter where in the world they are located.
