Digital Solutions for new businesses
Website design service especially for new businesses in their first 12-18 months, who are serious about wanting to grow their business. With that in mind, we make it easy for you by:
- getting you online fast, so you can start reaching your target market

- not asking for a large upfront payment – instead we offer small monthly payments over 12 months
A beautiful, well-functioning website that ranks high in Google search results is your most powerful asset when it comes to marketing your small business online.
But getting there can feel like an insurmountable obstacle if your expertise is not in digital marketing.
With over fifteen years’ experience in websites and SEO, I can help you get your site and your SEO working like a well-oiled lead generation machine.
When we work together, all your dealings will be with me personally; there is no middle person, the buck stops with me. That means you get the security of knowing exactly who is working on your site and that they really understand your needs, because you and I will have gone over everything in detail together.
I can build your website from the ground up, organise hosting and get everything sorted for you so you can focus on what you do best: be the expert in your very own small business.

Lucy really knows her stuff. Her ability to work with you to create an awesome website is second to none. Lucy created my website and its now the corner stone of my business. Easy for customers to use and communicate with me. More importantly after a few months, my website is on page one of google listings because of how Lucy designed it.
Your website will be...
Easy to edit
With the websites I design, you’re in control. Easily build extra pages, add pictures, or update and manage content all by yourself. I teach you how to do this as part of the website package, and also provide easy to follow video trainings. I use WordPress to build my website, which is one of the most simple website systems for non-techies to use once the website is built.
Found on Google
The websites I design get excellent rankings on Google. I design your website with Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) in mind, and fulfil the on-page SEO techniques so it’s search engine friendly and can be found by your potential customers. Did you know that less than 1% of people actually look at the second page of Google?!
Made with best practices
Your website will look great, and function well on all devices and platforms, including mobile phones, tablets, and desktop computers. It will be fast to load (did you know if it takes more than 3 seconds to load you will loose 60% of visitors?!). And it will be designed in a way that I know increases conversions (sales or enquiries).

Frequently asked questions.
How long is the monthly payment for?
It is for 12 months. Once the 12 months is up, we can continue to host your website and support you for a small monthly charge. You own your website, so if you decide after 12 months to take it to a new hosting provider, that’s OK too!
What is the cost after the 12 months?
You can decide. We have 3 different payment packages for hosting and maintenance of websites after the initial 12 months. They start at $49+gst per month. You can see more about them here.
What does hosting mean? And domain?
A domain is the www.YOURDOMAIN.co.nz part. We can organise that for you as part of the package.
Hosting is what keeps the website online. We use a NZ based host for optimal speed and security for a NZ market.
What is copywriting?
Copywriting is the wording or content of your website. Copywriting and images are some of the factors that have the biggest influence over the success of your website, so that’s why our packages include professional copywriting.
You will have a 30 minute zoom session with the copywriter and myself (Lucy) so we can find out more about you and your business and then we can get started on created you effective copywriting for the website!
If there is any copy you particularly want to include on your website – that’s OK too!
What do I need to provide you first?
- Your logo (if you have one already)
- Any images you want to include
Other than that, our intial consultation will give us all the other information we need to create your website.
When do the payments start?
The payments start on application so the first payment is complete before the website is live.
Can I use this service if I have been in business for more than a year?
Yes you can! The same packages are available for you too.
How long does it take?
It generally takes around 2-3 weeks to get your website up and online.
What support do you provide afterwards?
Once the website is live, we include an hour of training with you – to show you how to make changes to the website yourself. The programme we use makes it very easy for you to do this yourself. We also provide video tutorials too.
With the platinum package, you also receive digital marketing coaching each month too, which you can see more about here.
Can I make my own changes to my website?
Yes! We make it very easy for you to make your own changes to your website. You can easily change things like text, images, testimonials etc.
What about images?
You can provide us with the images or photos that you want to include on your website. If you don’t have any, thats OK too as we have access to millions of stock photos that we can use too.
What's the process?
Once you sign up, we will have a initial 30 minute zoom consultation to get to know a little more about your business.
Then we will have a 30 minute zoom consultation with the copywriter.
