A free website builder may seem like an obvious choice. There are many upsides, but sometimes the downsides can be reason enough to invest in getting a proper solution for your business.

Time, money and stress

  • There's a substantial learning curve to using the tools correctly.
  • Constant updates and backups are required.
  • No dedicated support leaves you scrolling through forums and blogs for answers.
  • Patching together different plugins to implement all your required functionality could result in side-effects that leave you stressing to find the solution.

Security

  • Third-party plugins that are used to introduce features are susceptible to bugs, security vulnerabilities, and increased script sizes.

SEO

  • Incorrectly implemented SEO strategies might result in search engines penalising your content and lowering your ranking.
  • The available tools on many free website builders are limited and can only get you so far with optimising your content.

The consumer experience

  • Slower loading web pages result in a worse user experience and the potential of more user drop offs.
  • Selecting a template means that you are fitting your requirements into the design rather than building a website to suit your requirements and those of your customers.
  • It is often clear that a website was built using a free platform, which can convey a lack of investment into your business and credibility.

How can we help?

We understand at the beginning of your journey days are long, the pressure is high, and budgets are limited. wearegoat Express is the perfect solution for those who want to bridge the gap between not having a website, or using a free website builder, and having a comprehensive website built that suits your business's needs.

Our intention is to get your business online, quickly, and easily.

What does our journey look like?

Consulting

You tell us about your business's needs and goals. This can be done via phone or email, whichever is most convenient for you. This leads to a discussion about the type and quantity of content required for your website. This is where we start to get to know each other and you get a more clear picture of how we work.

Becoming part of the team

Once the details of what needs to be done are confirmed and you're happy with the direction, we start to see ourselves as part of your team. The success of the project is just as important for us as it is for you, which is why we find it important to work together as a unified team with clear and honest communication.

Designing

The design of your website starts with the laying out the structure and organisation of your content. This sets the foundation for how we expect your users to interact with your website and ensures that your users have an enjoyable experience.

Approval

We send you the designs that we created based on our conversation of what is needed and any brand guidelines you may have. Any adjustments that are needed to the design are made. It is important that at this stage the design is finalised and approved.

Building

During the stage where we do what we do best, we start building the website and connecting the Content Management System.

We want to have clear and open communication with you. We believe that it's important to be honest and transparent during this stage, which creates a better result and relationship for everyone involved. Once we have a working version of the website, we will provide you with access so that you can see how it functions in the browser.

Testing

Quality is an important part of our work. We ensure that what we produce is of a level that we are proud to put our name to and results in a good experience for your audience. We handle internal testing and give you access to the website to test for yourselves. At this stage, your eyes are more valuable than ours and we want to hear your thoughts.

Encouraging

We make sure you are fully equipped with how to use your new website by providing you with documentation prior to launch. We'll make sure that the relationship between yourself and your online space is an enjoyable one.

Launching

With everything finalised, any bugs fixed, and you're happy with the result, we are ready to launch the website on your own domain. Allowing you to start enjoying happier and more rewarding workdays.

If you don't already have a domain, no problem, we can help with this too.

Supporting

Don't worry, that isn't the end. After launch, we'll check-in and see how your business is doing and whether you have any further requirements.

To answer your questions

What sort of features can I get with wearegoat Express?

We can include a range of features upon request, such as contact forms, Google Maps integration, booking systems, eCommerce functionality, and third-party integrations.

When submitting your specifications, please let us know what you require and we’ll do our best to accommodate. Some of these may incur additional fees, but we'll be sure to inform you of any additional costs that may be charged.

I want to sell products online. Would wearegoat Express be suitable for this?

Yes, we are able to build an eCommerce shop for you, with the possibility of integrating to your stock manager and accounting systems.

I don't have a brand, can you help with that?

There are the following options available for you:

  • With the founders having Masters in Graphic design, and Graphic Branding and Identity, this is something that can be added to the cost. Although we no longer offer branding as a separate service, if a logo is needed for your website, we can help.
  • If you require a more in-depth branding exercise, we partner with agencies who can assist you with that. We can either refer you to them or work with them on building your brand. Either way, once they've finished, we can use the new brand guidelines to design your website.

I don't have any images to put on my website, can you help with sourcing them?

If you're unsure of images for your website, we work alongside you to source them. There are different options for sourcing images — creating your own, purchasing royalty free images, or sourcing images from free stock libraries. Alternatively, we can work with photographers and illustrators to create these images for you.

I don't know what content to put on my website, can you help with content creation.

We take great pride in our collaboration with our clients. We will advise you on how to structure your content and what should be included in the website.

Alternatively, we can partner with trustworthy copywriters to create a content strategy for you.
