SOME OF OUR WEB DESIGN PROJECTS
Always custom designed - we do not use mass produced templates
PLEASE NOTE: Our clients maintain their own websites, so live sites are not always 100% reflective of how we handed over the site to the client.
READ WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
Oak Graphics has helped us transition from our old web site to a modern professional looking web site, from our first contact Julie listened to what we wanted and at the same time gave us options and ideas on what she could do to improve the site. By offering web design ideas that we could see and check before she made them live on the site it gave us time and space to make the right choices on the changes we were making. Ultimately the changes she has made to our site are honestly the best thing we have done, our web traffic has gone up, contact pages are working the phone is ringing and the web site is new, modern and most importantly it is easy to use, our customers love it and the increased web traffic is testament to that. We will continue to use Oak Graphics for all web design work in the future and we highly recommend to give this company a go if you are considering either a new web site or a fix up of the old one like we did.
WHAT TYPE OF WEB SITE DO YOU NEED?
Let us help you navigate through all the jargon
A single page information website
If you are on a budget, just getting started in your business, or just need to get your basic details out there, a little about what you do and some contact details then this is all you need - you can always expand later as your business grows. A Single page site has all your relevant business sections listed with links from your site menu to the part of the page the menu item relates to. A single page site is a more economical option if you are just starting out in business and don't have a lot of web site content at this stage and is also the most economiocal option.
A multi page information website
If you have an established business and need to provide customers with a variety of information about who you are, what services you offer, examples of your work and so on, then a multi page information site will help you get your information out there. Enquiries generated by your website will be from customers who have already decided your business can help because you provided enough information for them to make a decision before contacting you - this saves you time answering questions and brings you customers more ready to commit.
An ecommerce website for selling online
An eCommerce website is a must if you want to sell products/services online. We utilise a variety of easy to use shopping cart solutions to suit your needs and help you reach out to Australia or to the world. An online shopping solution helps you expand your horizons without having to leave your suburb, it can go hand in hand with a retail outlet, a market stall or it can be your only store front. In today's world selling online has become an essential option for many businesses - something made very clear in recent times with lock downs or weather events affecting your ability to open your brick and mortar storefront, it also frees you from relying solely on local traffic for sales. Let customers book and pay online if you are a service provider, manage cancellations, automated email reminders to your clients and much more.

WEB DESIGN SERVICES
The details of web design
Creating the right style of web site that is the best fit for your business is an important part of web design.
We take time to understand the target audience you wish to appeal to, as well as the business image you wish to convey.
Because we are also graphic designers, we can create the perfect custom ‘look’ for your web site.
You can maintain your website content, or we can take care of that for you, ask us about our web site maintenance options.
Website content is a balancing act between text, imagery and functional additions.
We will guide you as to how much of each type of content is required and suggest options to maximise the delivery of your content to your web site audience.
You don't have to write the site content as it will appear on your web page, just send us the information as it comes to mind and we will work it into a suitable layout.
Whether you need a shopping cart to sell online, a booking site for your services, a beautiful gallery to display images, custom contact forms, content management database and much more, we can design the web site you need to best promote your business.
DOMAIN NAMES/WEB HOSTING/EMAILS
All web sites need a domain name and a place to host the web site.
We can arrange the purchase of a domain name for you or use one you already have.
The web design platform we use is WIX - they have secure hosting inbuilt with every website and take care of all the security for your site hosting so you don't need to worry about updating security yourself.
You can use your current email with your website or if you want to purchase a domain based email such as firstname.lastname@example.org we can also assist you in purchasing and setting up your email accounts on your computer/devices.
SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION (SEO)
Search Engine Optimisation is the name used to refer to several processes that a web designer undertakes to increase the visibility of a web site to Search Engines, when we say ‘search engine’ we are referring to the likes of Google, Yahoo and Bing.
The purpose of SEO is to increase traffic to your web site and this in turn can become a ‘conversion’ which is a sale or enquiry generated from your web site. All our websites come with our standard SEO package so you don't need to pay hundreds of dollars extra on top of your site cost.
SERVICE AND SUPPORT
100% Australian owned & staffed
We are friendly and easy to talk to - we don't use lots of tech talk or jargon. We value traditional customer service, and believe having affordable custom website design shouldn't come at the cost of losing those values for the sake of saving a few minutes of time. We gladly talk through all the aspects of your website, answer your questions and get to know you, so we can create better solutions to meet your individual needs, not offer you a quick cookie cutter website design.
The web design platform we use has extensive inbuilt help options and we include a 30 - 40 minute training over the phone or via zoom/skype on how to maintain and edit your website. If you prefer we do the updates then we offer an affordable maintenance option as well, the best of both worlds.
The security for your site is taken care of automatically by the platform we use, you never need to worry about updating your software and if you ever have a problem we are always here to ask if you can't find a solution via the platform help and support options.
