Our Web Design Process
There is no doubt that in today’s modern age a good online presence will definitely drive more customers to your business. But designing a website that will convert visitors into potential sales is not always so clear cut. We have been doing this for over 10 years and know what it takes to create a website that will definitely give your competition something to worry about.
Analyzing Your Competitors
As a matter of fact, we don’t write a single line of code until we have spent countless hours analyzing your competitors. This allows us to create the best possible website within your industry. During this process we look at businesses that are doing well in your niche and use their strengths and weaknesses to create a website that will place you above your competition.
Mind Blowing Design
Once we have done enough reconnaissance and are happy with the information we have collected, our graphic designer will create a beautiful homepage theme that will best represent your business. Now on the odd occasion that he doesn’t get it totally right the first time round you are more than welcome to make as many changes as you like until you are 100% happy with your design. Having said this we will still guide you through the design process and make sure that the landing page is not only aesthetically pleasing but also designed with practicality in mind. After all, there is no point in having a pretty website if it doesn’t convert your visitors into sales.
What's Under The Bonnet?
Our websites are built using the very popular WordPress platform. Many years ago WordPress was well known as a blogging site but in recent times the platform has really come of age. As a matter of fact it is so robust that some of the worlds most popular companies use it. Here’s a few of them:
The Walt Disney Company
The New Yorker
Microsoft News Center
Harvard Gazette Online
One of the other main benefits of WordPress is the easy to use content management system. After all there is no point in having a website if you’re not able to change the content yourself. Once your website is completed we guide you through the process of how to access your admin panel and change both written and media content with the greatest of ease. There is no need to understand code or even be all that technically inclined. As long as you can operate a mouse we’ll have you updating your websites content like a pro.
Reputation Is Everything
There are many web design companies that will promise you the earth but when push comes to shove they very rarely deliver. Most of our clients have come to us with nightmare stories about dealing with such shady companies. It usually starts with a call from someone in a foreign country professing to be a guru web designer. If you already have a website they will point out a number of fictitious reasons why you’re not ranking on the first page of Google. Many of our current clients have fallen victim to this sales pitch and paid the price for it.
One client in particular had paid the full amount and upon doing so was no longer able to get in contact with the developer. He was also locked out of his unfinished website and unable to retrieve his login details. To make matters worse, he entrusted the web designer to register his domain name and was never given any details of where it was registered or what the login details were. Other clients have reported multiple errors on their sites and a flurry of broken links which definitely doesn’t earn you any brownie points with search engines.
Many of these companies will setup a representative in Australia to give you the illusion that they are Australian based but in actual fact their developers are offshore and not very good at their job. Sonic Web is a 100% Australian owned business and has been registered as such for over 10 years. All of our work is guaranteed and we are always contactable when you need us. Before hiring us to build your website we highly encourage you to contact any of our previous clients and if they give us anything less than a glowing review feel free to use someone else.
