Here at ethne. we have been building WordPress websites since about 2014. Some of us more, some of us less. But all in all... here are some of the common questions we have been asked along the way.
I have never had a website before, how does this work?
That's ok! You can learn how we take you through a website design project in our process section.
How much does a website cost?
The cost of a website can vary depending on many things, just like the cost of building a house would. Generally speaking, our website projects start at $4000.
How long does it take to design and build a website?
The time it takes to produce a website depends on the size and complexity of your website and the quality of content (images and words) that you have ready to go for us. A basic website typically takes around 4 weeks from beginning to end.
Do I need my own domain name and web hosting?
Yes, we can help you get this setup or can work with your existing provider. We are not a web hosting company.
What is a domain name?
A domain name is your address on the internet. Typically this would be something like yourcompany.com.au
What is web hosting?
Web hosting is a service that allows your website to be viewed on the Internet. It’s basically a computer housed in a data centre that runs your website and email.
Will my website work on mobile devices?
Yes it will. All the websites we design work on all devices. In our world, we call it Mobile Responsive.
Do you do eCommerce/Online Store websites?
We sure do! But please be mindful these websites work best when you take the time to learn how to use them after site launch and understand how best to handle your shipping and postage costs.
What is a Content Management System?
A Content Management System is a tool that allows you to maintain the pages of your website yourself, without the need for any technical skills. A CMS allows you to edit and add pages, images, products or blog entries to your website. No additional software is required – all you need is a web browser and an internet connection.
Do you provide training?
Yes we provide all our clients with training on maintaining their WordPress website.
Can you help me with Social Media and Email Marketing?
We sure can. As part of your project we can include social media and email marketing services.
What is Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)?
Search Engine Optimisation is all about getting your website higher up in the search results on search engines such as Google. The higher up the results you are the more traffic (and customers) you’re likely to get.
There are many aspects that go into achieving good SEO, and one of the most important is the copy (words) on your website. Focus on well-written, keyword-rich, and appropriate content is the key.
Do you write the content for my site?
We don’t directly write your content, however, if you need help with this we can put you in contact with a copywriter who can assist you.
Can you design my logo?
We can! In fact we love to design an entire brand kit for you. Just ask...
