Just because you don’t have $12,000+ to spend on web design for your small business, doesn’t mean you have to settle for a second rate website.
In addition to my main occupation as a Brisbane SEO Consultant, I have been designing and building WordPress websites for over 7 years and have an excellent understanding on how to get the most out of this very powerful platform. I am able to offer everything from logo design & image editing right through to custom coding and content writing.

Like with my SEO clients, I pride myself on being upfront and honest with my Brisbane small business web design clients. I won’t try and sell you unnecessary ongoing website maintenance packages or offer you website hosting (which is actually just farmed out to another company with a mark-up on top).
My pricing starts from $3k for a SEO friendly WordPress website design & build, however I can provide a much more detailed quote upon request.
Before we talk colour schemes or layouts, I’ll first ask you about your business goals and common customer pain points. This gives me a clear picture of what the main purpose of the website will be and ‘must-have’ features to ensure a smooth customer journey. If required, I will also review your current organic rankings to create a strategy that ensures positions are maintained (if not improved) with the launch of your new website.
This step is critical to to ensuring your site is able to be easily navigated by both users and search engines. Drawing on keyword research, I’ll come up with a suggested navigation that allows your site visitors to quickly locate the information they’re searching for, whilst still providing enough depth for Googlebot to establish relevance for your target keywords.
Once an agreement has been reached on the layout of the website, I’ll then get to work producing 2 detailed mock-ups to fine tune the design of your website and lock in an agreed aesthetic to ensure you’re happy with the final result.
The development stage typically involves purchasing an existing theme and creating a child theme to create the level of customisation required. This allows you to maintain the latest version of WordPress without breaking your website every time.
Finally, your website will be tested in multiple devices and browsers to ensure that it works perfectly every time.
I’ll be on hand for weeks, months and years down the track to help you with any questions you might have with your website – no disappearing acts here. You’ll have my personal mobile number to get in touch whenever you need assistance.
Whilst you’ll need to pay for website hosting, domain registration and a developer like myself to build your website, once your WordPress site is up and running there’s no monthly costs involved. Inferior alternatives such as Wix & Squarespace cost between $19 – $25 USD per month.
What’s the point in having a website if no one can find it? In my opinion, WordPress is by far the most ‘optimisable’ in terms of SEO. XML sitemaps, robots.txt files, meta robots tags and a bunch of other important files are simple to edit on WordPress – which isn’t the case with most other alternatives.
Even if you have no experience when it comes to editing websites, adding pages, blog posts and images to WordPress is very straightforward. However, I’m always available to help out if you get stuck.
There are thousands of well supported WordPress themes and plugins available to help you achieve almost any type of design or functionality.
Unlike Shopify, Squarespace, WIX and other CMS’s – WordPress allows you to choose your hosting provider, meaning you can host your website closer to your customers for the best possible loading times.
