  Web Design

How can one comfortably and safely choose a company or individual to design a website which will positively reflect their business? It is surely one of those services where word-of-mouth is the most trusted means of securing a reliable web designer.
Our reputation and business have been built on such personal recommendations. We are reliable. We are trusted. And we wouldn't sleep at night if we weren't!

ERW Design caters primarily to small / home / startup WAHP (work at home parent) businesses and the sole trader. Our dedication to this sector, creating individual designs with a personal touch, means we do not spend many hours creating intricate animation components for your site - although if this is your desire, of course we will meet your requirements.

While often impressive, feedback we consistently receive indicates many people find such graphics are mostly overused, slow down their navigation of a website and actually hinder the experience by getting in the way of finding what they went to the site for in the first place.

ERW Design aims for value for money. Whilst we are happy to design and build your website without direction, we greatly appreciate your input as this is far more economical. We will listen to your requirements and work together with you to build a sensible, smooth-flowing site. We go beyond the call more often, as we take pride in every design we create and ensure our clients are satisfied with their site before we all say the job is finished.

We welcome enquiries so if you would like to know more, or to get the ball rolling, please contact us.

Pricing

Some Web Design companies quote that their services start from as low as $5,000 ranging up to the $10,000's and more. If you have that sort of money to spend, perhaps that is the best way for you to go. We work on a smaller scale than some of the bigger companies.
ERW Design aims to provide each and every one of our clients with a unique, thoughtful and individual web page they are pleased with and our pricing policy reflects this. We have no "strict" price structure as such, beyond the basic starting prices below, preferring to make a price on application dependent on your budget and goals for your web site/page.
Whatever your budget, we can have a draft of your site up and running in a matter of days so you can immediately start seeing returns on your investment. From here, the turn around time for your site to go "live" for public viewing on the internet is dependent only on the time it takes to work out any changes and improvements, but this is rarely longer than a few weeks for a basic 3-5 page site.
Below are some estimates of design costs, provided here as a guide only. Please contact us for a more accurate, no-obligation, free quote with a full list of inclusions.

• Single page site:   from $180* - depending on the actual scope of the project.
• Basic 3-5 page mostly text-based site:   from $650* - depending on the actual scope of the project.
• Larger sites ( including E-Commerce   enabled):   from $1,000* - contact us for a free quote.

We offer innovative design, with prompt and reliable service, and excellent follow up should you wish to update your site at any stage, all at reasonable, affordable prices.
Email us to submit an outline of what you require and we will contact you to discuss your needs. If distance permits, and if possible, we will probably also meet in person at least once throughout the process.

Web Hosting & Domain Name Services

You will need both a site host and a domain name in order for your website to become visible to browsers and potential customers on the internet. Domain name registration and hosting services can also be provided, or procure your own provider/s and simply provide us with the details.

• Domain names from $40 / 2 years* (price for .com.au name)
• Hosting from just $120 / year* (price for single page site including an email address)

We aim to take the mystery out of sourcing your own site hosting and domain name (your "address" on the web, where people will find your business or services), by doing it all for you. If you have ever boggled your mind over attempting to find the best hosting provider and domain name registrar, or lost valuable time trying to compare prices and wondering if you will make the right decision, look no further! You can be assured of service excellence with ERW Design.

Additional Updates

From time to time, you may find updates to your site are required. This may happen yearly, quarterly, monthly or even more frequently depending on the evolution of your new presence online.
We are happy to make any adjustments for you at any time, offering prompt follow up of your requested changes at reasonable hourly rates. Enquire here for more information or to ask a question.

Site Maintenance

This is a complete service and we will periodically look over your site to ensure everything is in working order. At any time, if you find a problem you can contact us.
And if you are a Site Hosting client, as above! If you have a comprehensive Hosting package through ERW Design, you can also request site traffic information at no extra charge.

Payment

We request a 20% deposit once a framework has been agreed on, prior to commencement of site development. During the construction of your site, we welcome any information you wish to include.
Once we complete all work to your specifications and your site is finalised and uploaded to the worldwide web, we will invoice you for the balance, including any extras incurred along the way (at all stages of this process, we will advise you if what you are requesting will attract an additional charge - rest assured you will not be delivered any surprise invoice charges!).
You can make changes within the scope of the project at any stage of the process before you receive your invoice. After this time, any subsequent updates, additions and maintenance you request once your site is uploaded for live/public viewing will be invoiced accordingly.
