The websites I build are Search Engine friendly out of the box, but there are additional steps we can take to further fine-tune your site.
I use a range of SEO tools and techniques, following Google-recommended best-practise to optimise your site to its fullest extent.
This gives you ongoing benefit in terms of the visibility of your website in a search engines unpaid (organic) search results.
Whether you’re looking to bring in new website visitors, grow online sales, get the phones ringing or keep customers coming back for more, Google Ads can help.
Google Ad Campaigns
|No Minimum Budget|
Google Ads doesn’t require a minimum budget. However, I recommend that new advertisers start with an average budget of $5 to $50 per day so that your ads have more opportunities to show to potential customers.
With Google Ads, you decide how much you’re comfortable spending and set your budget accordingly. This makes online advertising accessible to businesses with limited advertising budgets.
You decide how much you want to spend, and pay only when someone clicks your ad.
|Target Your Customers|
|When you advertise online with Google Ads, you can use different targeting methods to reach potential customers right when they’re searching for your products or services. This can help make sure that you’re putting your advertising dollars towards reaching only the people most likely to become your customers.|
|Ad Campaign Management|
Once we have defined and set up a Google Ads campaign, I will regularly check on the account and make adjustments if necessary.
I will report the performance of your Google Ads campaign to you on a weekly basis.

I work with you to determine what goals the website needs to fufill. Once we know your site’s purpose, we can define the scope and timeline of the project.
Who is the site for?
What do they expect to find or do there?
Is this website’s primary aim to inform, to sell, or to amuse?
Does the website need to clearly convey a brand’s core message, or is it part of a wider branding strategy with its own unique focus?
What competitor sites, if any, exist, and how should this site be inspired by/different than, those competitors?
Here we start digging into the sitemap, defining how the content and features we defined earlier will come together.
The sitemap provides the foundation for any well-designed website. It helps give me a clear idea of the website’s information architecture and explains the relationships between the various pages and content elements.
Building a site without a sitemap is like building a house without a blueprint. And that rarely turns out well.
With your help, I then start creating content for each page.
Content serves two essential purposes:
Purpose 1. Content drives engagement and action
Purpose 2: Search Engine Optimisation
After that, it’s time to create the visual style for the site. This part of the design process will often be shaped by existing branding elements, colour choices, and logos, as stipulated by you, the client.
By now, all pages are defined so its time to add the finishing touches and to make sure it all works.
I combine manual browsing of the site on a variety of devices with automated site crawlers to identify everything from user experience issues to simple broken links.
There is also an opportunity here for your feedback before the site goes live.
Once everything’s working beautifully, it’s time to plan and execute your site launch!
This should include planning both launch timing and communication strategies — i.e. when will you launch and how will you let the world know?
After that, it’s time to break out the bubbly!
Once a website is live, it’s not only important to protect it from malware and hackers that can take your site down and destroy your Google rankings but it’s also important to keep the tools in the site updated and to make sure the site as a whole is running quickly and efficiently.
