Plutonium Creative specialises in website design. In fact we’ve been building websites since 1998.
Humans are emotional beings. When it comes to web design we aim to take advantage of that and evoke a ‘Wow! These guys know what they’re doing!’ or ‘Oooh, I like that!’ kind of response. It creates an immediate connection between the user and your business which we can then build upon through great, relevant content and a professionally designed website.
We also get that your website is a key element in marketing your business. While we make great looking websites we also focus on implementing the best possible SEO, site structure, user experience (UX) and site speed to make it as effective as possible. We can help you to write content and structure the hierarchy of every page to actively encourage your site visitors to take that next step and pick up the phone and call you, to fill their online cart with your products, hit that chat button or even just fill out the query form and send you their question.
Websites with insight
Receiving website generated queries is a great way of gauging how well your site is doing but sometimes you need a deeper level of insight. That’s why we set up Google Analytics or all new and existing websites so that you can learn more about your audience and how they’re interacting with your site. This data can really be really useful in improving your marketing strategy, helping your site visitors to find what they’re looking for, understanding what social media platforms your should be targeting, understanding what content they find most valuable and much more. It’s also great if you’re advertising online because it integrates with Google Ads, and yes, we can design your Google Display, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn ads for you too 🙂
Deeper engagement with site visitors
Social media isn’t the only way to regularly engage with your customers. Adding lead generation forms or even just newsletter subscriptions to your website can be a great way to build a database of potential and existing customers who you can then communicate with (i.e. market to) directly. Common integrations we implement include HubSpot, Mailchimp, Drip and Sendinblue amongst others. When you’re ready to setup your email campaigns we can ensure these are professionally designed and on-brand too. Many of our clients make it easier for their customers to make bookings with them by doing it online. WordPress makes online bookings easy via integrations with many popular booking and CRM systems. See how our client Osteo & Heath Inner West have included online booking on their site by clicking here.
We predominantly develop websites using WordPress. Why WordPress? Firstly, it’s free and open source which means that there’s a huge community of developers out there contributing to its continual improvement and increasing its functionality. It’s highly customisable, so we can make any kind of website with it including blogs, business websites, eCommerce sites, membership sites, portfolios, galleries, chat rooms, forums, job boards, eLearning sites and more. Many of the sites we’ve designed and developed are a combination of these.
Because WordPress is a content management system. This allows you to update and change content on your website without the need to get a web developer involved. For larger changes or if you just don’t have time we’re always here to help.
We also design and build websites on managed services like Shopify, Squarespace or Webflow. Good site structure, information hierarchy and SEO optimisation are still key considerations whichever platform your site is built and hosted on. While these services also enable drag and drop site design it’s still a good idea to get an experienced web designer like us to do this for you. After all, you want to project that professionalism and quality we referred to earlier.
If you’re selling products or services online we also design and develop eCommerce websites. We’ve built sites with as few as 5 products up to hundreds of products. With WordPress as our go-to content management system WooCommerce forms the backbone of many of our clients’ online stores. With it’s built-in inventory management, order management and integrations with a wide range of shipping providers and payment gateways WooCommerce is flexible enough to handle any type of store. If you’d prefer a managed solution like Shopify we can do that too. The importance of a well structured, branded and professional looking site is just as relevant whichever platform we use.
If you don’t have the time or technical knowledge to set up your own web hosting we arrange that for you. We can advise on the most appropriate hosting plans and providers to suit your website and budget. Many of our clients are first-time website owners so need assistance with setting up a domain name and domain hosting as well. We can recommend reputable domain registrars or handle the whole process for you.
So, down to the nitty gritty. How much does a website cost? As you can see from the overview of our web design services described above, there are a lot of variables which change significantly from website to website. The number of pages, how much content is on each of those pages, whether you need us to help you with writing the content, how many product variations you have, whether you want users to be able to subscribe to electronic direct mail, etc. This is why we estimate each website project individually. We take time to understand not only what your new website needs to do and deliver but also to learn about you and your business. All of this information and understanding comes together to culminate in a website which will form a key role in your marketing strategy, building your brand and in helping to achieve your business goals.
