Website Design & Hosting

Cheezy name. Serious websites.

WEBSITES FOR IRELAND. Built in sunny South Africa.

Make the exchange rate work for you (and beat the COVID-19 slump)

Do a bit of research and you’ll quickly find that my website design rates are up to 50% lower than most of the local web design company rates. WHY? Simple, South Africa’s weak currency. This is (partly) why I deal with customers based abroad. I get paid a fair rate locally and you get a website at a steal. Also, rest assured that you’re NOT dealing with an untraceable person somewhere in Uganda, Kyrgyzstan, Bangladesh, China etc.

Each website is designed with your customer in mind. You’re important to us too – but we want you to be overflowing with customers. So I use only fresh, wholesome & organic ideas and designs to satisfy the most discerning customer tastebuds.

Planning for COVID-19 and post-COVID-19 business is crucial for millions of business owners. For most this includes creating or improving their online presence. One of these online tools is to leverage the power on online commerce. Even if it is only giving your customers a central platform to your business while the doors are closed – it’s crucial.

BTW. Should we ever part ways, know that your website will be transferable in an industry accepted format. You’ll never lose your information or website, even if I bite the dust.
Remember, you deal directly with me. No middle-man. No third party. So nobody else has claim to your data except you.

MADE FOR IRELAND.

BUILT IN SUNNY SOUTH AFRICA.

COVID-19 changed the world. Rise above the change.

website design, affordable website design, web design, web designer, web design company,

If the COVID-19 pandemic has made anything abundantly clear for business owners it is that we HAVE TO BE MORE FLEXIBLE in how we conduct business.

So let me cook build you a great website to help fight the COVID slump. I won’t try and confuse you with all the technical jargon, I’m not going to try and upsell anything. There’s no contracts and long term commitments either.

I’ll simply create an awesome, informative website for you and your customers.

Even if your business is a brick-and-mortar shop serving coffee, this can no longer be the only avenue of conducting commerce.

WE HAVE TO THINK MUCH FURTHER AHEAD. Consider offering a delivery service of home-brew kits. Maybe a take-out service through your local food delivery services. There are untapped methods of expanding your business, and at the root of it is your website. Your website is the pivot point for collecting new customers, connecting social media hubs (that seem to be ever changing). So unlike the latest fab social sharing platform your website remains YOURS.

That’s why using free website building platforms are also not always the ideal solution. Your data is not in your control, the life of your website is not in your control. So your business’s health is not in your control.

All free items are only valid with purchase of associated package.

If you’re ready to order simply email me HERE or click the ORDER NOW button on any option. Once I receive your email order I’ll confirm any unclear issues I or you might have.

It almost goes without saying that your payment is secure with them and I never receive any financial information of yours.

Upon receiving payment confirmation I’ll begin designing your website (most often I start the process prior to this). Depending on your chosen website there will be some email exchanges, so please keep an eye out for information requests from me. I develop all websites “offline”, so progress will be provided by live links to my local server. Once you’re satisfied I transfer the final site from the staging site to your live site, ready for the world to access.

The “SERIOUSLY! ONLY ONE SLICE LEFT?” Landing Page – either €69 or €165  

+ €69 – Landing page (like THIS PAGE), 500mb disc space, mailbox, 12 month hosting and .com domain
+ €165 – Standard 1 page website (like THIS PAGE), 3GB disc space, mailboxes, 12 month hosting and .com domain.

Perfect for a quick Landing page, Notice form, Coming Soon, Site notice etc.

Consider this option to put something online with basic information about your business, or use it to be a hub for the current social media and social entertainment links of your business (remember Vine? MySpace? – yup, they sometimes don’t last).

It can also be a simple sign-up form for an upcoming business or products launch or promotion. And of course it can be used as a lead generator for your business. Landing pages are often slightly set apart from your main website. So a Google advert would direct people to a landing page for whatever is advertised, and not the actual website. This means the reader is presented with exactly the right information upon their landing on the page.

What’s in a “Page” ?

There’s a bit of confusion surrounding about what constitutes a “page” on websites, and with good reason. Typically a page is considered just that – a page. Filled with words, pictures, diagrams etc – like in a book. Remember those?

This is unfortunately not a good descriptor for websites. An “About us” page could be one or two short paragraphs for some, and for others it could be a vast amount of information covering their history, founders, owners, events, links, media etc. describing an entire story telling of the company – and both are perfectly valid. This does not mean that both would be considered a page in terms of information and work required to build the page though.

So trying to add ALL of your company information onto a Single Slice website is not going to save you any money. Apart from some SEO and technical reasons why this would be a bad idea, the amount of hours required to build this “mega inclusive page” is the same amount of time it would take to build a 4, 5, 6 etc. page website.

So here’s some guidelines:

  • Text of around 300 to 500 words.
  • 1-10 Photos
  • 1-5 Products with descriptions of about 50 – 100 words.
  • 1-3 Locations
  • 1 Form with about 10 – 15 data entry points

The above is not set in stone though, and the combination of elements might mean that the page information values could change. Another guide is the amount of time spent creating the content of the page, but this too comes with some caveats. An hour to 1.5 hours worth of work roughly equals a page. I look at both time and content weight and try to give you the most for your money.

I’ll also ALWAYS advise you if I believe the quoted rate will be too low for any new information required. Or where you’ve chosen a set “Per Slice” option, I will guide you on how much more, or less, information is required to fill the page.

What other services do I offer?

Graphic Design

Let me help your best image forward for your next marketing brochure, company letterhead, business card, invitation, sales-leaflet, indoor point of sale material and all outdoor media including banners, flags, vehicle wraps and general signage.

I’m happy to work alongside your chosen printer, or let me source and vet a suitable supplier in your area that can best produce your printed goods.

Monthly Maintenance

With the rise of global data breaches ever increasing the need to keep your site secure is critical to smooth ongoing daily business. Don’t be fooled and believe that only large companies get attacked. Micro-hacks are an extremely lucrative option for black hat hackers.

I offer ongoing upkeep of most sorts of websites to secure your website continuity.

Branding & Corporate I.D. Design & Development

While some might be able to simply improve their business income channels for post COVID-19, others might need to start an adjacent business (buzz word here is Side-Hustle I believe). Doing this half-heartedly won’t cut it. Let me assist you to create an image and voice for your new venture.
I have over 2 decades worth of real world experience in helping start-ups with creating a corporate ID for their businesses, so you’re in good hands.

Web Design (from Landing pages to Multi-Store sites)

While I predominantly do small to medium sized websites I can quite easily pivot to larger ecommerce sites or custom coded dynamic sites.

The beauty of course is that websites, if done correctly, are fully scalable. So start small. Turn that trickle into a stream, and that stream into a torrent. I’ll be by your side to help your site grow.

All the right buzzwords will be involved with your new website: cross-platform compatible, scaleable, responsive, secure, high page-score, SEO friendly and many more.

eCommerce Websites

Ecommerce has long established itself in modern life. But it’s usually in a consumption manner. You use it to spend money. But post COVID-19 you’ll want to use it to make you money. Maybe it’s for your side-hustle business, or perhaps it’s to enhance and further strengthen your current company channels of income.

It doesn’t matter how you choose to utilise the growing power of ecommerce, it only matters that you do so today. And that you do it with commitment.

Logo Design, Redraw or Redesign

Something that has been a constant in our brick-and-mortar businesses through the years has been the lack of quality digital assets we receive from customers when needing to print either indoor or outdoor advertising materials. Logos are most often supplied in the wrong format, incorrect colour space and the most common issue, too low resolution for optimal output.

The process of redrawing involves creating a new master version of your logo that has all the available traits your printer will require to create a perfect print for you.

Who am I ? Where am I ? Why should you trust me ?

Who am I ?

I’m a husband, an animal lover, world traveller, space and sci-fi fan, introvert and humanist. I also love snowboarding, but in a country that gets no snow I realise it sounds ridiculous. I work selectively on brands and ideas I can relate to or have a passion for.

With about 25 years of real-world graphic arts experience and knowledge, I’m ready to take on most projects and styles. I’ve designed embossing stamps for pharmaceuticals to national rebranding campaigns and everything in-between. I’m flexible given enough leeway and time.

I’ve created, own and run Orange Signs, Wrapz ™ vehicle branding, Magnetz.co.za, Boardz.co.za, Bannerz.co.za, ChromadekSigns.co.za and many more.

Where am I ?

I live in Van Riebeeck Park (the suburb) in Kempton Park (my city), which borders  O.R.Tambo International Airport (our largest airport in S.A). This all is situated in the province of Gauteng. In yester-years this distance might have a been an issue for me and you, but now technology has greatly shortened the distance for family, social and business relationships.

I live with my awesome wife, 4 dogs, 3 cats, 1 river toad and a special needs garden toad. We also often nurse birds back to health.

Living in SA has so many great features not found in most other countries – but you aren’t here to get a travel report. What I can absolutely guarantee you is that elephants and lions don’t freely roam our local streets :)(Except when they do)

Why trust me ?

I’m not sitting behind a third-party platform. I’m not a random call centre agent who might not be around next month. I will share my exact location (if requested) backed by municipal documents. I have a good standing business in South Africa, registered with the CIPC. For obvious security reasons I can’t place this information here freely, but I’ll share the info if requested via email to credible requests. This is also why I share my personal photos of travels in and around Ireland on this page. We get around, because we get things done.

This website is also securely anchored within the Irish borders. Should I do something unbecoming of a good business nature then I lose this domain and the business along with it. I’ve gone through unnecessary effort to obtain an .ie domain and ensured that I adhere to all GDPR requirements, even if I did not have to.

I also have existing and ongoing businesses that I run with my wife with hundreds and hundreds of past customers. Lastly, I have family in Ireland and I’m in Ireland quite often – me and Nadia love visiting you okes.

So what about GDPR ? (Don’t know what it is? Don’t stress !)

What is GDPR ?

The simplified version: The GDPR law aims to give control to individuals over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU and EEA. Data controllers (you) must clearly disclose any data collection, declare the lawful basis and purpose for data processing, and state how long data is being retained and if it is being shared with any third parties or outside of the EEA.

SO, IN SHORT: The is in place to avoid the mis-use of yours and your customer’s personal information.
Remember, even if you’re not actively requesting information, eg: an email address, your website almost always requires data to function properly.

I ensure that you are compliant to the law with regards to the website as far as what I’m empowered to do. Should your site require more detailed and/or extensive data collection I’ll advise on further steps required on your side (Eg: Appointing a dedicated Data Protection Officer (DPO) )

See the Wikipedia entrance HERE or visit the GDPR website HERE for official and extended reading on the law.

We love travelling – who doesn’t :). Maybe we’ve passed each other in Ireland ?

Me and Nadia love traveling. We got enganged in Ireland at Blarney Castle. This is a bit of a cliché, but experiencing even the littlest of other cultures is a great passion of ours. It’s this love for seeing other countries that mostly drove my desire to deal with businesses abroad.

The list below is not extensive and clearly does not include all the tourist spots (we’ve  visited far too many to list). But maybe we’ve been in your part of town. Drop us a line to say that we misssed you and where you are.
