Many things make a good website. Unfortunately what is perceived to make up a good website is generally not correct. Most users believe that the appearance or what you see is what makes a good website. Although the visual aspects of a site are important, it is like looking at an iceberg, only 10% of what you see makes up the bigger picture. Good site design goes far beyond the visual element. For example a site may look fantastic but if it is badly designed no one will find it using a search engine or the site may break in certain browsers.
At Invent Media we take the time to explain how your site works without bombarding you with technical information. This in turn gives you a look at the bigger picture so together we can created a website that not on looks great but is effective from a technical point of view.
At Invent Media we strive to create a unique, customized websites for our users at great prices. There is no universal solution to building a website, so the cost of a website varies from customer to customer. At Invent Media we take care of all the details from start to finish when creating your website, then we bundle them all together for you so you know exactly what you are paying for and there are no hidden costs along the way.
There are five basic costs involved in setting up and maintaining a website. They are:
- Domain name registration
- Website hosting
- Website design and development
- Website Maintenance
Details of each of these can be found below.
A Domain Name is a unique website address. An example of a domain name is www.inventmedia.com.au. Finding a unique domain name can be difficult due to the large number of domain names already registered world wide.
Choosing a good domain name will help your customers find you and will also improve the amount of traffic to your site. We can help you find a domain name for your business.
Once you have chosen a domain name it needs to be registered. Annual fees apply in order to keep the domain name registered. As always, at Invent Media we take care of all the details and will register your domain name on your behalf.
In order to view website on the internet, the files that make a website must be stored or “hosted” on a server. This is call “website hosting”. This server is visible to internet users who then access the websites files in order to view the site. Invent Media hosting servers are located in Sydney and not overseas.
As always, at Invent Media we take care of all the details and will host your website for you.
The development stage of the process is the actual design and build of the site. For development costs you will be provided with a quote based on the work required. Costs vary depending on the size, complexity, and the time required to build the site.
Development costs may also be for major changes to the site, for example adding a new page or feature to the site. Typically, anything that doesn’t fall under maintenance of the site would be development.
Maintenance is the day to day changes made to the site in order to keep it up to date and running. Website maintenance is charged at an hourly rate. Anything beyond the scope of maintenance falls into the development category. Most sites need very little or no maintenance once they are up and running.
As with all modern media good a product will generate interest on its own. At Invent Media we maximize the chances that your site will get high search page ranking and generate traffic without the need for any extra advertising. If you choose to, there are ways you can increase the traffic to you website through advertising. Invent Media can tailor a Google ad campaign to suite your advertising needs.
