Website Design FAQs
How much do you charge to build a website?
There’s not a simple answer to this question. The website design is quoted on the needs of each project. Every website is different with a unique set of requirements. We design and develop a website specific to your business. We ask a lot of questions, get to know your business, and give you a price quote based on what we think will meet all your requirements AND will best grow your business. We usually provide several options. Our smallest package starts at $1000. Please contact us at [email protected] to begin the quote process!
How long will it take to complete my website?
Our standard timeline is 2-6 weeks but this depends on the project size and your requirements. Speed is affected by how much input you can give during the initial stages, how soon the content is provided, as well as edits and revisions. We aim to get you the website your business needs as soon as possible and provide a timeline for each project so you know where we at!
Do I have to be in Wellington to work with you?

The content comes from you but we can guide you through the process AND tweak the words if necessary. You are the expert on your business, so it’s always best if it comes from you.
