The pathway to an online presence
I’m here to help, every step of the way
Getting online or fixing part of your business’s online process can be a daunting prospect, especially when you have your own work to do.
There is a pathway though, and I can take you through every step of it.
Unlike other web designers, who can only design websites, I have the qualifications, skills and experience in all the other technology that surrounds your website and powers your business both on and offline.
You may be at the very beginning of the pathway, with no website, no business emails and only an old laptop.
Or you may be further along your journey. Maybe you purchased a domain and your neighbour’s son has made half a website or you still have an @gmail.com work email address.
You may even have a website you like but want to add some power to it such as an online booking system or shop.
This is called your domain name and is purchased from a domain registrar. It’s job is to tell a browser looking for your website where to find that website; i.e. where it is hosted. I can arrange and manage your domain for you.
Your website has to live on a server somewhere. Hosting companies provide those servers and the resources your website requires. I use virtual private servers with global providers to give robust and top level performance.
It isn’t as easy as it looks! People are extremely distractable these days and you need to capture them within seconds of arriving on your website. I use WordPress to build all my websites as it gives me power and flexibility while still being very easy for my customers to update once the website is launched.
Do you still have an @xtra.co.nz email address for your business? If you have a domain name then you should be using it for your emails too. I use Google Workspace for all of my customers because its well priced, reliable and fully integrated with every device you already own. I can set everything up so you have professional emails using your domain.
A monthly maintenance package keeps your website up to date with the latest software and security releases.
If something goes wrong, I’m here.
