Like you, we’re a small business so we offer our clients a very personal service. When you email or phone us you’ll get us, when you have a question we’ll be happy to help and if there are any problems during the design phase, or after your new site goes live, we’ll be here to support you and keep things running smoothly.

Your website is the most important and cost-effective marketing tool your business has, and we take that responsibility seriously.

Your site should act as a way for you to find and convert new clients and allow you to keep in touch with existing clients. As the first point of contact for new clients, it will create that all-important first impression about your business so it’s crucial that it looks good, is easy to read and scan and is user-friendly so that people can find the information they’re looking for fast.

When someone visits your site for the first time you only have a few seconds to let them know how you can help them and convince them that you’re the best person for them to work with. Which is why, if it’s well designed, it will be the smartest marketing investment you make.

We design sites that stand the test of time and that can grow and evolve with your business. Before starting work we’ll spend a lot of time finding out about your goals and clients so we can design a site that gets results.

WordPress

Since we first started building websites in 1995 we’ve used content management systems like Mambo, Drupal, and later Joomla,  but it wasn’t long before we realised that WordPress was a far better option. Since then it has continued to improve, becoming an excellent solution for any site that will be updated regularly as well as for e-commerce sites and of course blogs. WordPress now powers 43% (and rising!) of the Internet.

Today we use WordPress for all our web development. We love and recommend it because it’s so easy to use and you’ll be able to update the site yourself. We will give you documentation so that you can learn how to update your site or, if needed, give you and your team training at your home or office if you live on the Sunshine Coast or by Skype if you live further afield or overseas.

WordPress is a great solution for business because it’s easy to use but it’s also powerful enough to host blogs for mega sites like CNN, Reuters, and Ebay. In fact, you can do anything in WordPress, from setting up an online store with secure sales to hosting a private membership only area or forum.

5 More Reasons We Recommend WordPress

1. It has hundreds of plug-ins – Plug-ins are extras that upgrade your site to create enhanced functionality, security and ease of use. For example, there are plug-ins to allow you to add Twitter or Facebook share buttons to your site or to create a blog editorial calendar. It’s flexible – it can do whatever you want it to do, so you’ll never need to change your content management system again.

2. It’s great for SEO. If you want your website to rank well on Google, you’ll need a WordPress site!

3. WordPress is great for websites, not just blogs –   it’s an excellent content management system that allows you to update every page of your site yourself.

4. It’s free – Yes, you read that right.

5. There is a huge choice of themes – there are literally thousands of themes to choose from and we can point you to the much smaller number that are any good. The benefit of using a good theme as the starting point of your design is that it will save us a lot of development time, and save you a lot of dollars!

To find out if WordPress is the best solution for you, give us a call. We’ll be happy to discuss updates, themes, plug-ins or anything else that you’d like to know more about.

Web Hosting

We offer secure and reliable WordPress Business Grade web hosting with guaranteed 99.9% uptime and advanced features that will meet any future requirements of your website throughout its lifetime.

1. Reliability

We’ve done the research for you and selected a secure and reliable hosting provider with all the database and coding options that may be useful in future if you need to upgrade. We speak WordPress and can assist with any problems you may have with it.

2. Guaranteed uptime

If your server is recorded as having less than 99.9% uptime for a full calendar month, just let us know you’re not satisfied and we’ll add one month of free hosting to your account. No questions asked, no excuses, guaranteed.

3. Regular backups

If your site goes down for any reason we’ll have a backup stored so you’ll never lose all that valuable content. In fact, since we host your site we’ll be able to get the whole thing back up for you as soon as possible.

4. Speedy service

When you host with us we always have your server details and a backup on hand, and we know our way around the control panels and advanced features. So if you need a new email account, to restore data, to upgrade disk space or bandwidth, to check website statistics or internet marketing accounts or to get your site updated, it will be quicker and cheaper when you host with us.

5. Support

If you need any support,  you get to speak to or email us rather than enter a support ticket at any old web hosting company who may or may not get back to you in a timely fashion and who may not even be in Australia. This extra layer of support is very important, as we understand WordPress and your site content while most hosting companies only deal with technical faults on the server.

6. Fast load times

Load times are still important as the average reader won’t wait around if it’s slow to load, they’ll look for another company offering the same services or products. We can host your site in Australia and/or overseas depending on where most of your readers are and our fast servers mean fast download times.

7. Excellent value for money

Our hosting isn’t the cheapest around but it is one of the best. Thanks to all the features listed above, it protects you from income loss caused by problems with cheap hosts, and makes it an easy and worry-free experience.

Web Hosting Costs

We offer premium hosting for $29 -$49 per month. (Limits 1GB disk space and 5GB bandwidth and if you’re based in Australia, all prices exclude GST.)

Apart from design, our expertise includes:

We’re based in Noosa but get great results for our happy customers around Australia and overseas.

On-Going Maintenance

When your site is live we can provide site administration and updates.

We recommend that websites are kept current and up-to-date. This will keep regular visitors interested and should get new visitors to come back again. Many of our clients ask us to update sections such as news, future events, customer comments, competitions and special offers for them. We can even write or edit your online and email newsletters so that the copy makes good reading and the style is consistent.

Regular updates like these can be made weekly, monthly, quarterly, or bi-annually. Even sites of a fairly static nature may need to have a few changes made now and then when information about people, menus, services or products changes. Many of our clients prefer to be able to update their sites in-house and we offer full access to the content management system that allows updates to be made quickly and easily with no experience needed!

To find out more please see the wide range of our projects and give us a ring or email us now.

We’d love to hear from you and will be happy to talk about your needs and concerns. Bear in mind that there’s no charge for talking to us, or for us to write a detailed proposal and costing for you. So, don’t miss out on some good, honest, professional advice. We look forward to helping you.

10 Things We consider When We Design Your Website

No matter what size your business, Mucho will design and develop a website to market, advertise or sell your products anywhere around the world. The secret to our success lies in first developing a clear strategy for new sites, then following it through with meticulous planning.

We’ve Got the Key Areas of Effective Design Covered:

  1. The main aims of your site
  2. Your target audience
  3. Your branding
  4. Graphic design – the principles of good interactive design
    We understand the importance of white space, typography, colour palettes on the web, screen size and resolution, grouping elements. We consider what information will be instantly visible to visitors and what information they’ll need to scroll down to see.
  5. Internet marketing and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
  6. Usability
  7. Ease of update
  8. Technical constraints For example user screen resolution, browser choice and bandwidth
  9. Legibility and readability
  10. Logical and consistent layout and navigation

Clear Strategy

We’ll develop a strategy and provide a tailor-made solution to achieve your goals. We’ll define the concept, analyse the topic and study the target audience and competition. Once we’re fully prepared we can go on to design an effective online presence for you.

Many web design companies have a technical background but are unable to fully understand the principles of good design, or cater to business needs. We are uniquely qualified and experienced in integrating copy and images to create a cohesive website that’s easy to navigate and understand. We work hard to understand the needs of your business and then create practical, integrated solutions.

We are driven by usability and functionality, not by technology. So, if the latest innovations don’t add value to your requirements, we won’t use them. But of course, if you could benefit from having a more interactive website or one which combines sound, animation and video, then we can do that too! Careful planning

We’ll conduct a needs analysis and suggest how your needs can be best interpreted on the web.

Our prime concerns are ease-of-use and speed. When we’ve got a clear understanding of the job we’ll write a detailed proposal with a fixed costing.

Clear and careful planning are the keys to success in any detailed project. That’s why we storyboard all our websites not once, but twice. First on paper to give an overview and then in more detail online to allow everyone involved to actually experience how the site will work. Storyboarding is a vital process that helps to:

  •  eliminate errors;
  •  anticipate problems;
  •  ensure ease-of-use;
  •  avoid loose ends;
  •  allow all team members to input ideas;
  •  reduce user testing.

And of course, throughout the development process, we’ll manage the project professionally, so that it is produced within budget and on time.
