Dear Business Owner,

Performance Improvement Guaranteed!
Did you know that the majority of existing websites on the web are duds? Why?
Most people, including Sunshine Coast web design agencies, have no idea what’s important in a website.

Let me explain.

The majority of people see a website they like and want a similar site.
But this is taking the wrong approach.

Let’s look at 2 websites.

Some Average WordPress Website


The first one is a screenshot of my website.
My website is interactive AND fully loaded within 0.589 seconds.

The next one is a WordPress site I looked at earlier today. This Sunshine Coast business website was just “rebuilt”, and it now is interactive in 12.6 seconds.

This is pretty average. I’d say 90% of websites take more than 10 seconds to load, but that is forever to stare at a blank screen.

Like I said, most web developers don’t know what they’re doing.

In a 2018 research report, Google found that 53% of mobile users leave a site that takes longer than three seconds to load. This number has only increased since then.

Which website would you rather have? Let’s have a chat and find out how fast your website actually is.

So the first important aspect of a website is its load time. This includes where your server is located and how many other websites are hosted on that server. We host our websites on Australian servers. I reduced the load time of my website by 50% just by moving to a better host.

Anyways, if you’re not into websites, this is all mumbo jumbo. What you should do is this. When you get a quote for website development from other sunshine coast web design agencies, ask this: What is the finished website’s gtmetrix score? And, what is the Google Page Speed Insight Score of the final website?

Sunshine Coast Web Design Agency

If you’re in the market for a new Sunshine Coast website designer, there are a few things you need to be aware of. For starters, if you’re honest, you don’t just want a new stunning website. You want traffic, and you don’t want traffic either, you want leads and sales. Right?

So your website needs to do a few things:

1. Your website needs to rank well and get traffic
2. your website needs to turn traffic into leads
3. your website needs to represent you well.

The problem with most (Sunshine Coast) web designers is just that. They are designers. Most people and web design agencies that we’ve worked with have a graphic design background. In and of itself, that is not a problem, but it becomes a problem when graphic design comes first. In our experience, every excellent website design starts with the right website platform. Once you have decided on the platform, you need to do your keyword research. What terms should your website rank for? As in what business are you in? And what are people searching for? Then you need good content on your website. We have seen terrible looking websites with no graphic design on it. But the content was so good that the website was converting traffic into leads. Then you need to think of your branding, and only then should you think of graphic design.

Why do you need a website?
Think of it this way. Google and Facebook generate more revenue than any other traditional media company. Why? Because they control more eyeballs. So, if you want to get your product or service in front of the right people you gotta be where they are. And, like it or not, people are online. Especially after 2020. So your website is your new business location. Do you have a cheap office, tucked away in some alley? Or do you want to be on the main street where all the traffic is? It’s the same with your website. You need a good website to present your business well.

Then, once you have a good website you need a good digital marketing agency that can put together a digital marketing strategy, such as Google AdsFacebook or Social Media.

We think we should talk 😉

Website platforms:

There is no shortage of website platforms out there. We’ve looked at many platforms and worked on many platforms. Are you selling products through your website and want an eCommerce site? We would recommend either NETO or Shopify. Are you an established business that is getting some good volume through your website? And have brick and mortar locations? We would recommend NETO. If you sell only online or are just starting, Shopify would be the way to go.

For everyone else, a WordPress website or Squarespace site is the way to go. Do yourself a favour and stay away from WIX. We’ve had nothing but trouble with them. In our experience, WordPress is the better option. You can do more optimizations, more customizations. There is almost nothing you can’t do on WordPress. Which is a huge plus, but can turn your website into a bloated beast, if you’re not careful. If you’re just starting and want to do a lot yourself, Squarespace is an excellent option.

Website Ranking (SEO- Search Engine Optimisation)
Once you’ve decided on a platform, you need to determine what you want to rank for. If you have an established business or website that should be easy. We use Semrush, to do keyword research, but you could sign up for a Google Ads account and use that.

If you have an established website, check out your Google Search console. Google Search Console will show you what keywords your website is ranking for. Are you redesigning your website? Make sure you don’t change your URLs without setting up a 301 redirect. If you don’t know what this means, talk to your Sunshine Coast web designer. If they don’t know what you’re talking about, or how to keep your rankings while transitioning to a new website. Run. You can get a brand new website without losing rankings. I rebuilt my website and increased my average rankings.

Website Optimisation and website page load time

As you are building a website, you want to keep your page load time and website optimisation in mind. I would recommend using a tool like Google page speed insights or gtmetrix while you are building your website. Does the new plugin you installed drop the page load time by a massive amount? I was using a form plugin, that would double my page load time. We decided to come up with a different solution.

Image Optimisation. A lot of graphic designers love huge image files. Probably because they’ve come from a print background, on the web your images should be the exact size they are rendered on your website. And you should optimise your images. You can use a tool like tinypng to compress your images before you upload them


Website Branding

What is the brand you want to your website to communicate? I don’t mean your logo, but what tone of voice are you using? What images are you using? What calls to actions? Do you want to position yourself as a local business or a national company? As a start-up or an established organisation? Will you be using your photographs, stock photos or illustrations? What icons will you be using, …. ideally you want to work with a copywriter or a brand consultant to help with this. Again, I couldn’t tell you how many times we’ve seen spic and spec websites, that looked great but had virtually no content whatsoever on them. I’d rather spend $5000 on a copywriter and use a templated website than hire a graphic designer and skimp on the messaging.

You can generate leads with a white page and great content. A picture is not worth a thousand words when it comes to Sunshine Coast web design.

Conversion Rate Optimisation: How to turn traffic into leads

Assuming that you are getting the right traffic, now you’re website needs to do the heavy lifting. For starters, you need to decide what your main goal is. Do you want sales? Or phone calls? Form submissions or newsletter signups. Or online bookings? Or, … you get the picture. Your website needs to be designed to guide people into making the decision you want them to make. With a lot of our eCommerce clients, we found that it takes the right foundation just to get started. But to make money from your online shop, you do need to test different aspects. From the product title to the product page. From the checkout page to the checkout process. From where you put the shipping information to the return information. From the reviews, and, and, and.

If you approach a website that you get it done, and then you don’t touch it, you will be disappointed. Like everything in life, you will have to put work in. You will have to make changes, test something, and make improvements. If you do, you will be rewarded. If you don’t, well…
