I specialise in developing high quality, small to medium sized websites that are standards compliant, easy to use, easy to find and flexible to suit most budgets.
Whether it's a simple website with standard pages, a news site, personal blog, musician site or a full blown application, I'm interested in being a part of it.
Content management systems
All websites I build include a content management system (CMS). A CMS allows you to update the content of your web site using simple forms and text editors in an administration area of your site. This means you won't have to hire me (or anyone else) every time you want to make changes to your website.
The CMS can be highly customised to manage all sorts of content, files and media on your web site. This could include managing media like an Image gallery, video gallery or audio player.. or specific content like products, a portfolio of work, calender of events or.. anything you want really.
I use open-source frameworks such as Silverstripe, Joomla and Wordpress to create solutions that work best for each individual project.
Search engine optimisation
There is no point in developing a website if no one can find it. To make sure you get the best results in search engines like google, I apply the follow Search engine optimisation (SEO) techniques to every website I build.
- Search engine friendly URLs
- Easy to manage, customised meta-data for each page
- Well formed, standard compliant code written with SEO in mind
- Advice on writing good website content with SEO in mind
- Creation of XML site map and submission to google
- Google analytics installed to analyze your websites traffic / trends
Your website will need to be hosted on a server in order for it to be available to your visitors to see. I offer hosting based in NZ and abroad, starting from $100 per year.
