How long does the process take?
Once we recieve all of the correct information off you, we aim to have your new website completed within two weeks, but often we can build them sooner than this.
Why are you so cheap?
We prefer to see ourselves as awesome value for money.
The emphasis and vision of Easy First Websites is not to sell ‘cheap’ websites, but to give you a great start, with everything you require to build a solid online foundation.
We are able to keep to our price point by offering already pre-designed websites.
This is in contrast with a traditional website build where a lot of time is spent going backwards and forwards with a client working on specific designs.
But please don’t see this as a restriction. With the software that will be installed on your website, you have the ability to further create anything that you require.
This takes us back to our vision: Which is to give you a great solid foundation – we get you online with great value, but where our work ends, is where your website begins as it is more than capable of going wherever you require it to go. Your website is fully scaleable and will grow with your business.
What we do for you:
- We complete a full WordPress install
- We create the standard pages required with your content
- We supply each website with one of the most powerful and popular drag-and-drop page builders there is, with a lifetime licence worth over $350AUD alone!
- We give you instructions with how to make basic changes
- … and we even host it for FREE for the first 12 months
Which platform does Easy Web Creation use?
We build all of our websites on WordPress. A tried and tested platform which now is powering a staggering 30% of the entire internet!
You are in good hands – and good company too with the likes of The BBC, Bloomberg, The Official Star Wars Blog, Sony Music, The New Yorker and MTV amongst others using this particular platform.
Having a website based on WordPress mean that in the future, if your needs change, your website will be more than capable of expanding into whichever direction you require it to go.
Additionally, as a user of WordPress, if you require help in the future, would like to build custom functionality or even find tutorials, you are not short of help.
As WordPress is pretty much the industry standard now, virtually any website developer is comfortable working on it as its underlying code is the same from one site to another, where if you have a website fully custom written, you may experience problems in finding others willing to work on that particular platform.
Can I buy a website as a gift for someone else?
Absolutely! We will require the content from you so you have something to show the lucky recipient.
The only difference in buying a website from EasyWebCreations for somebody else is the registration of a new domain name. With the importance of domain names; unless you are exactly sure that your friend / loved one wants to register a particular domain name, it may be best to leave this to them.
In this case we can still build the website for you, but the website will sit on a temporary domain, so you can give your friend or loved one their new gift. Then, when they register their domain name we will connect everything up together.
… and remember. When they take ownership of their new gift, the recipient will receive instructions from us in how to make changes to their content and even change the whole website design!
What changes can I make after I take ownership of my website?
There are unlimited ways you can make changes to a WordPress website and can grow it however large you would like it to be!
You shall receive instructions on how to undertake simple changes; the use of the drag-and-drop builder, how to create new pages, changing your text or images and even changing the layouts which your pages are based on – we have over 750 pre-installed!
The sky really is the limit and it is totally up to you.
Why would I not use a service such as Squarespace or Wix?
Good question and one which actually drove us to create Easy First Websites to begin with.
We have been website developers for some years and noticed a trend of clients re-building their websites away from online website builders such as Squarespace and Wix.
The main issue is that you are limited and restricted to what their platforms can support and in most cases, if your requirements change over time, very often you will be needing more functionality from a platform than what your website would be based on.
(just Google Squarespace versus WordPress and see what the results say)
The other benefits are:
After you send us your content, we will lay out the pages for you – minimum effort on your part.
With Easy First Websites YOU own your website.
Your website is built on your own platform. The only different ongoing costs to you is simply renewing your yearly hosting, which is a fraction of the cost of renewing an annual membership with Squarespace or Wix
You have very little limits to how you want your website to look.
With Easy First Websites, although you choose a design to begin with (you have to start somewhere) the actual platform comes loaded with over 750 page designs built in and literally tens of thousand of themes available all across the internet – many for free!
Owning a website on your own platform means that your website grows with you.
Would you like to sell products? No problem, integrate a full e-commerce solution and build a shop of unlimited size.
Would you like to teach and sell online courses or have your very own membership area? Again, no problem, all of these things, and a gazillion more will integrate with your site now and any time in the future.
Imagine spending a great deal of time building a really nice looking website only to have to re-build it again somewhere else in the future?
I would like something different than one of your example designs?
If you would like something different than one of our current designs, we would be happy to speak with you to discuss your project.
Have a look on our services page where you can read more extensively of our additional services and how to book a FREE Strategy Call
- We can build you a larger site than the examples shown
- Add extra pages
- Integrate additional functionality: e-commerce solution, membership area etc
- Build your email list campaigns
- In fact we are happy to help whatever your requirements are
Some of your designs links to pages that are not there
On some pages in our designs, there are links that appear as point to pages that are not there.
This is purely to demonstrate where that page could expand into.
Also, there are some instances where it appears a link or a button points to a third party application (for example an appoinment system in design four). This is for demonstration purposes only and your options with the examples above are:
- Create the extra pages
- Remove the links
- Buy and intergrate the third party application or software
Could you explain how your hosting works?
To assist our clients in getting online as easy as possible, we offer FREE hosting with each website for the first 12 months.
After this date, you will be given the option to either remain hosting with us, which currently costs $79.99 a year, or to host your website with a company of your choosing.
Please bare in mind that our free hosting is considered ‘locked’ hosting. You will NOT have any option to access your hosting account or be able to make any changes on the server. If you feel that you require these advanced features please consider upgrading to our Premium Hosting where you will have full server access. Click here for more details.
I already have hosting and / or an existing website
This is great and no problem for us.
We shall build your new website on a temporary domain on our servers. Then, when it is completed, we shall migrate the new website over to your hosting account.
Which software do you use?
Your website will be created with the awesome page builder Divi, from Elegant Themes.
We do not like restrictions of any kind and by choosing to base all of our websites on Divi ensures that you receive a tried and tested end product with full functionality.
Unlike traditional WordPress ‘themes’ Divi is a powerful page builder with drag-and-drop functionality, allowing you to make changes on the front end of your website so you can see your results instantly.
When using a page builder, what you can create, is only limited by your imagination and NOT the restrictions of what a traditional theme is capable of.
(for example, this website has been created with Divi)
Of course, also being WordPress based, if you would like to swap out Divi for something different, you are totally free to do so.
What other costs will I have?
You will have two ongoing costs:
1, The purchase and subsequent renewal of your domain name (you will have this expense no matter where you build your website)
2, The renewal of your hosting account after the first FREE 12 month period had expired.
I don’t have my own images.
There are a variety of copyright free image websites available to download images from, for use on your website such as Unsplash
Please don’t forget that once you take ownership of your website, you can easily change your images over for other ones.
I don’t have a logo. Can you help?
Although we can arrange a logo to be designed. You may be of benefit if you utilise a designer on Fiverr and liaise with them directly.
Do you offer ongoing support?
Indeed we do and it can come in two different forms:
- Monthly mainenance – This involves visting your website every month, undertaking any neccessary upgrades and to ensure your website is perfoming as it should be.
- Full Webmaster Service – With our FWS we will undertake the monthly maintance as above and will also perform any changes, edits or uploading of content
