How do I get started?
First step is to decide on a domain name for your website. Shortish names that are descriptive of your church or business and easy to spell are best. Names may not include any symbols other that hyphens ( - ). You can check availability of .co.za domain names here: http://co.za/whois.shtml; or .com domains here: http://www.register.com.
The next step is to decide on the branding or imaging for your website. If you already have promotional materials, logo or letterhead, they can provide a good starting point. It is also helpful if you can refer us to other websites that appeal to you.
Website structure and content. Decide what information you want to make available on your site, and start gathering or preparing documentation. Again, existing missions statements, history, etc can provide a good starting point.
Template creation is based on materials supplied by the client. Advanced graphics, animation, etc can be provided, but will be quoted separately.
Advanced customisation of modules can be done at R360 per hr in 1/2hr increments.
Additional database modules can be added as/when required - pricing from R720 per module.
