Web Design

We believe that Websites are tools for people. If we create a website only for our portfolio or the CEO, we miss the mark. So we want to keep the end-user in mind, every step of the way; from the design, to the experience, to contacting you.

Mobile First

It is important to provide your visitors an experience on your web site that is accessible by all, and that means across all devices including desktop, tablet, and mobile. Getting there is no easy task and with all the new devices being released at a rapid pace (almost daily!) it’s hard to keep up the pace unless your website is fully responsive in all environments.

Content Migration

If you’re finally ready to take the leap and discover the wonders of WordPress firsthand, Southern Sons Group can help you move from your current system into a brand new, beautiful and responsive WordPress site. As long as you have the data, we can do the work.

Custom Coding

Our key to doing development well is to stick with a set of standards that ensures our work is well designed and implemented. A set of standards that many people can agree upon are typically referred to as best practices. By adopting best practices as our development standard, we ensure that every site is structured well, optimized, safe and performant.

Premade Layouts

A design that is done well looks good. Design done best gets you results. We do more than create a look. We connect with you and help you next-level your brand.

Maintenance

Web Design FAQ

My new business idea will be huge, maybe the next SaaS. Can you help?

Yes. Websites like Facebook, Amazon and Twitter are not like standard websites. They require thousands of hours of work just to get the portal or website launched. You’ll need a team of developers on hand 24 hours a day to keep the website running smoothly. Us at Southern Sons Group can assist you with bespoke Web Development Projects.

Do I really need a website?

Yes definitely! If you want to expand your business, get more enquiries or become the go to person in your industry then you should have a website. In times of a global pandemic you might want to think about accepting online bookings or even expand into ecommerce.

Do you build mobile friendly websites?

Yes certainly. Your website will be fully responsive and will look great on all devices. Responsive Web Design is already included and we do not charge extra for it.

I already have a website, how easy is it to change it?

Great, you already have a website! That means we can build your new website whilst your legacy website is still online. Once you are happy with the design and we can then swap the old site for the new one. We will even cater for 301 redirects if applicable. It can take as little as 10 minutes for the new website to be visible. This means you’ll barely even notice a drop in your website traffic.

What if I don't want to use WordPress, can I choose something else?

Yes of course. But to be honest we prefer making use of WordPress to build websites. WordPress is a CMS that’s easily accessible for our clients to update themselves and is search engine friendly. Another value add is the easy to integration with third party companies.

How do you build my website?

We design your website from scratch using a number of tools. One of them is an open discussion with you and doing research on your competitors. You are also welcome to provide us with ideas or website you have on mind. We typically build your website using a platform known as WordPress.

Will you write the text for me?

It depends on the package you choose. We are happy to write the text for your website if you would like. We have a copywriter who will create the content for your website so you don’t have to. This may incur extra charges.

Can I update the website myself?

Yes absolutely. Once your website has been built we provide you with individual learning videos. We will also provide you with all the tools to be able to make website amendments. We make use of an easy to use platform called WordPress. Thus you can add edit and delete content without paying us to do it for you.

What if I don’t want to manage the website. Do you have a Maintenance Package for me?

Yes, we can arrange a website maintenance package to suit your needs. This can range from 1hr per month to 40 hours per month. We can discuss a package that’s right for you.

Who hosts the website?

We usually include hosting in our quotes. So it is easier for you to manage only one vendor. We offer a variation of hosting options starting from Shared Hosting to VPS and Cloud Hosting. We have access Server Locations around the world which will be beneficial for your local SEO. In South Africa alone we have Server Locations in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

What are your web design payment terms?

Yes, we split the payment into two. The first 50% is usually taken once you have accepted our proposal. The balance is to be paid on handover.

What will we need from you?

It all depends on what type of website you want us to build for you. All of this can be discussed during our discovery call before we start working together. Depending on which package we agree on we could need…

  • Images of you and your team
  • Images of your workplace
  • Content for the website e.g. text, PDFs etc
  • Staff Profiles
  • Any Videos you would like adding to the website
  • Login details to your existing website
  • Cpanel or server access if not hosted with us

We are also able to transfer and migrate the content from your legacy website to your new website.

How do we communicate throughout the webdesign build?

Before we start working together, we’ll usually have an initially chat on the phone or via Microsoft Teams or Zoom to discuss the project. Once we get started, most of the communication will take place over email.

This makes the process a lot easier as we will have all of the information saved and can come back to it later. Once the project is finished, we will arrange an 1hr digital marketing training session.

How long does it take to build and design a website?

It takes approximately 4-8 weeks to build a website from start to finish, providing we have all the information from you. To be honest with you upfront: the website will only take a long time if we are still waiting for text and images from yourself. So the sooner you provide this information to us the faster we can do our job.

What happens after I accept the quote?

Your onboarding officially begins!

Our onboarding process is purpose-built to ensure a smooth transition between sales, finance, and production. An easy and seamless client experience in this transition is of paramount importance.

Our process involves finalizing contracts, connecting with Accounting, assigning dedicated strategists, and conducting thorough kick-off meetings. 

Finalizing Contracts:

Upon receiving a signed SOW, your New Business Strategist at Digitopia will connect with the CEO of our company to review the contract, countersign the agreement, and send it back to you for your records.

Accounting:

Within 72 hours of receiving a signed SOW, our Accounting Department will be in touch with a request for initial payment. 

Dedicated Strategist:

For multi-service clients, you will be assigned a dedicated Account Strategist as your main point of contact. Unlike the typical "overloaded Account Manager," your strategist only leads a handful of clients. This allows each strategist the time needed to immerse themselves completely in your brand. Your strategist will act as a seamless extension of your internal team.

Initial Audit & Kickoff Meeting:

Prior to the client kickoff meeting, the team will have requested access to all necessary platforms and reporting tools, which will be used to perform an initial audit of all relevant systems and past marketing activities.

Your account team will come prepared for the workshop-style kickoff meeting (3-6 hours) with additional questions and recommendations on how to prioritize your digital marketing opportunities.

In this meeting, all stakeholders will review a detailed project/service timeline as well as examples of deliverables that will be developed within the first 8 weeks. Additionally, we'll work through a series of discovery and planning exercises that span subjects such as: sales process and performance, marketing goals and current performance, market segmentation, buyer personas, content marketing, advertising channels, and more.

What happens after I request a quote?

We’ll spend some time analyzing your digital marketing goals and budget, conducting research, and creating a winning strategy.

Once finalized, we’ll submit this plan to you and can then discuss whether you would like to proceed with it

Quotes are sent within 1-3 working days after you’ve gotten in touch with us (depending on the scope of what your brand is looking to accomplish.
