More Information / Website FAQ
What are the ongoing costs?
Your site will need ‘hosting’. Your site is made of code, and this code sits on a secure and powerful computer. The cost of renting the use of this computer and of making your site accessible to the world, is called ‘hosting’. It is a small amount payable per month and depends on how big your site is. Hosting is the only compulsory ongoing cost.
If a different website developer offers ‘free hosting’, keep in mind that the cost of their computers is recovered from you somehow, someway.
What are the optional ongoing costs?
Because sites are made of code, they go out of date which means they might stop working how they are supposed to, and also, they become more susceptible to attack. Also, with changes to the site, things will over time become untidy, again allowing the attackers to perhaps find a way in. The world has many hackers looking for out of date or poorly maintained sites. We offer and recommend an ongoing service to mimimise the chances of these things happening by keeping your site up to date.
GTB also offers other service, such as a standard Google Analytics report for $5 a month which gives you an interactive online summary of your websites key statistics, including visitor numbers.
Can I update the site myself?
Yes. Our WordPress sites are fully updatable by you. Keep in mind that while simple updates are easy to do even for a relative novice, bigger updates require some knowledge of WordPress and website design.
There are many training videos for WordPress available on the web. GTB can provide training for you if you have specific things you want to do.
Or you can ask us to update the site for you if you are not confident. This will be done quickly and efficiently
Does GTB do ALL types of websites?
No. We don’t do corporates or chains. We don’t do websites requiring lots of bespoke programming to delivery functionality. We don’t do websites requiring lots of careful customizing and artistic development.
What we do is websites that will be great value for the vast majority of kiwi small to medium businesses and organisations.
Are GTB websites costly?
No. Our clients are kiwi SMEs and they don’t have money to burn.
GTB has put effort into cutting out unnecessary cost. The cost to building a website lies mainly in the time taken to do it. A lot of the time taken to do it is in the process, not actually in the building. That is, we don’t mess around. We don’t have 10 unnecessary meetings with you. You don’t get to change your mind 100 times.
Can I change my mind about how the site looks during the build?
Yes, to a point. We work with you to ensure you get the site you want because we’re proud of our wok and we want you to be happy and tell others about us! But we ask you to make firm decisions at key points and then move on. This way we can deliver to the price we have given you. Because re-doing work is costly.
If you genuinely have a change of requirement after the site is already mostly built for example, then we will of course accommodate that; but it will come at an additional cost. Because re-doing work is costly.
Do you only do WordPress sites?
No, we also do sites in Craft CMS. We will listen to what you need the site to do for you, and then tell you which platform we recommend and why.
Can you write the site for me, or source great pictures and graphics?
Please let us know at the outset if you want us to do these things. Yes, we can likely help, but they are extra to a site design and build.
Writing the sites content is something you do best because you know your products and services and you know your clients and what they want.
It is one thing to do the words for a site, and it is another to go thing to go through a process to understand your target market, who they are, what they want, and therefore how you should design and explain you products to them. Your site will work best for you if it is written to really engage with your visitors, and if it gives them the messages that they want to hear, see and feel. We suggest you think about engaging with a marketing professional to write your words if this is important to you. GTB works with professionals and can recommend someone to you. Please ask.
Do you do Google AdWords and other online marketing guarantee campaigns?
To an extent. If you are looking for someone to do or assist you with these types of activities, then we can do that with you. We don’t however hold ourselves up to being a marketing agency, because we are not. Please discuss your needs with us.
Can you update my site when I want updates done?
Yes. Just send through what you want updated, and we’ll do it. This is a great service for keeping your site up to date and fresh with new photos, team members, updated products and services, etc. You pay only for the actual time it takes us to do it, no minimum fees or anything like that. See our Web Services page.
Can you host my site and keep it secure?
Yes. We can host your site, mange your Domains for you, and keep your site up to date and tidy thus reducing the chances of it being successfully attacked. See our Web Services page.
How long does it take to get a website done?
How quickly can you make decisions and give us the content?
Our experience is that a site typically takes a month to six weeks from payment of deposit, but this very much depends upon your availability for meetings, etc, etc. If it is truly urgent, then we will pull out the stops and potentially get it done in a few days.
What can I expect if I go with you guys?
When you are happy with and have accepted the workplan, we’ll get underway.
You’ll meet online with our developer for a ‘look and feel’ session. Our developer will already have a very good idea of what you want, but this is where you can really discuss what you are wanting, what you are thinking. If you have examples of websites you like the look of, then great, show them to us.
We’ll then prepare a mockup for you to provide feedback on.
Then you send through the content that you want in the site and we’ll fit it in, make it look good, and again listen to your feedback and tweak as needed. By content we mean the words, pictures and/or videos
When we’re all ready and the site is how you want it, we’ll make it go live for the world to see!
Great. The next step is for you to contact us so you can tell us what you are wanting, or what you are thinking about.
