Frequently Asked Questions
Development Go To Top
Can you make my website work on mobile devices, tablets and Ipads?
Yes, we can. The actual term is "Responsive development" and it involves us telling the website how to "respond" to different screen sizes, and it is not a separate website - not when we do it, anyway.
What technologies do you work with?
We do Wordpress websites. We work with CSS/CSS3, HTML/HTML5, PHP and jQuery to get the desired design and functionality.
General Go To Top
Do you upload my content for me?
We upload 3 normal blogposts for each client, as well as a few images in your gallery etc., so you can see how it is done, if your site is a WooCommerce site (shop), we do upload up to 3 products free of charge.
What do I need to prepare before you can quote?
The more info we have the more efficiently and quickly we can finalize your website. Here is a list of things we need before we can quote you:
- Decide how many pages you want, and what they will be called
- Decide if you want forms, and how many
- Get your design ready if you are using an external designer
- Prepare images and text (content) for all your pages
- An indication of whether you want your website to be responsive?
What is Wordpress?
Wordpress is basically the easiest and most powerful blogging and website content management system (or CMS) in existence today. You can easily create and edit your blogposts, manage your page content and manage contact forms etc.
What will my website cost?
Generally we start at R 6,000.
Isn’t web development and web design the same thing?
Not at all. Web design is usually a flat PDF, or image, it involves the styling and placement of everything on your website. Web development involves the "building"/coding of that design and giving it the desired functionality. There are "Drag and drop"-options in web development, but we don't do that.
Will I be able to maintain my website?
Yes, you will. We try to keep your website as simple and user friendly as possible as we know not everyone is familiar with Wordpress, but we do offer Wordpress training sessions (Cape Town), where we will have someone sit with you and show you how to do everything on your site, and we offer information documents with detailed descriptions and screenshots for those who are unable to make it to us in Cape Town.
How many changes can I make to my site without additional cost?
You will receive a first draft of the design and all functionalities have to be confirmed. Once agreed the final website will be compiled and a set of 10 changes can be applied. You can make one set of changes without additional cost, please note that additions (like pages, etc.) are not considered changes and will be charged additionally.
Hosting Go To Top

SEO Go To Top
Do you do optimise websites for search engines?
To make a long story short, no we don't. We do offer basic SEO services, which involves installing and implementing an SEO plugin on your website. Usually, it should be efficient enough to improve your ranking in Google, but in certain cases, you would require more advanced SEO services to improve your ranking, then an SEO plugin is not enough.
We help by providing a base for SEO which includes plugins. We don’t offer SEO marketing plans but have great contacts for you.
I want my website to be on the first page of Google, how can I do that?
Unfortunately, that is not something that happens overnight. Your website's ranking in Google depends on a wide range of things, such as how many visitors your site gets, it depends on your SEO titles and descriptions of your blogposts and images etc. And when all of those things are in order, it can take weeks - even months to reflect on Google Search.
