Need a small business website in Perth?

A great small business website isn’t just about pretty.

It’s about the idea, the story, the words. Pretty helps, but it’s less important than hit-’em-right-between-the-eyes copy and clever business strategy.

You might not know this yet, but for any business, and particularly a small business, the process of creating a website will push you out of your comfort zone.

You’ll need to think about your business from your customers’ point of view and often in a completely different way. You’ll have to do some big thinking, to find the elusive words that describe how your offering is unique and to blend them with the ones your customers are using to search for the thing you sell in the first place.

You’ll have to get clear about where your business is actually headed and how you can leverage your new website to be the stand-out choice more often than not.

If getting a new website for your small business is at the top of your to-do list, why not partner with a web consultant who will help you on your journey with best-practice responsive design, common-sense SEO tactics and easy to understand marketing strategy, without the big agency price.

Call me today to find out whether we could be a good fit or send me an email with the details.

Sandy Taylor designed both the website and banners for Lupus WA, a small non-profit, volunteer-based group. Her price-point was very competitive and the work produced was of an excellent standard.
Sandy was an absolute joy and pleasure to work with and we are thrilled with the final result. Throughout the entire process from quoting for the job right through to the design, development, production and maintenance of the website, Sandy ‘value added’ at every opportunity.
We highly recommend Sandy for all your web and other design needs.

A website is only as good as the words on the page. I often get web design referrals from within my network of copywriter friends, because they know I put a high priority on ensuring that the site is created with best SEO practice in mind. On projects like this, they write the copy and I create the site.

What you’ll get from me

With every website project you get:

  • A strategy session to establish the goals of the business and how your website can get you closer to achieving them.
  • A new WordPress website, optimised for mobile.
  • A premium, professional theme, with developer updates until the site is live.
  • Automated backup to your website hosting account.
  • Security to protect the site.
  • Caching to improve speed.
  • Google Analytics & Google/webmaster setup and customisation to enable you to see who is visiting your site.
  • Two rounds of revisions after delivery after first draft.
  • 30 days of support after the site has been launched.


Optional extras
  • Domain names from $12 per year
  • Web hosting from $105 per year
  • Security certificates from $60 per year
  • SEO Copywriting > see packages
  • Additional functionality
    • on-line shop
    • booking system
    • event management system
    • membership system

In a nutshell, everything you could possibly need to get online and grooving down with Google.

Choosing a Web Designer
To create a website, you need the following things:

  • Project Management
  • Web Strategy/User Interface/User Experience Architect
  • Copywriting
  • Web Design
  • Web Development/Programming

In an agency or corporate environment, these roles would be assumed by different people or teams of people who do only that.

For most small businesses, agency pricing would blow the budget sky high, so what’s the alternative ?

A small business specialist

You obviously need someone who can do all these things (or has people who can do those things for them) but

more importantly you need someone who can put themselves in your shoes and suggest solutions that are appropriate for a small business, both in terms of cost and manpower to maintain.

I’m not suggesting you think small, you should think HUGE and make sure that anyone who is advising you, has the tools to help you get there.

But how do you know if they do ? How do you know if you’re talking the right person ?

For a start, are they listening ?

80% of my clients report having previously felt enormous frustration at not being listened to and having trouble getting hold of their “website person”.

Are you their target market ?

My niche is small business owners who are inexperienced at web development.  I don’t work for big business because I don’t want to. My skills in each of the key areas required to produce a website, are at

the level required to produce an excellent website for a small business. I don’t particularly want to generalise into just copywriting or design.  I like the variety involved in a small business website and my background is in small business management, an area that I get pretty excited about.

Are they the cheapest price you could find ?

If so, step away, then run. We all want to save money, but in a small business there are heaps of things you can save money on, that won’t compromise the overall result of a website. Use the cheapest domain name provider you can find, the most cost effective hosting provider that offers a reliable 24/7 helpdesk and the most reasonably priced fonts and images available.

Why should I spend more money than I have to ?

A professional theme, the best copywriter you can afford and an organised and efficient designer to put it all together will get you a long way towards your dream of a website you love.


You’ve looked at my portfolio and pondered my prices.

If you think I might be the one to help you realise your dream of a website for your beautiful business, get in touch and I’ll respond pronto.

I’m very gentle with my clients and very rarely bite.

You're the one for me, baby !
