While being a reasonable website with the essentials covered, the software used to create the website had become obsolete – the website couldn’t be updated any longer. In addition, the website was looking dated having been published a few years ago. More importantly, some expected standards weren’t being met such as a secure connection between viewer and website (the “SSL certificate”).
So time for a refresh and rebuild. No radical changes to the content, but more a polishing and extension and reformat of what was there. Add new images (and make them big), put things where people would expect to see them. The drive of the revamped website is now to get potential clients to ring – because every home inspection is different (think: the age, the location, the type & size, the materials…), so Craig likes to have a discussion before providing a quote.

Giving a quick appreciation of the benefits of obtaining a pre-purchase property inspection, these animated counters grab attention and get people thinking.
Buying property is a major investment of time, trouble and money, and there are significant chances of the property having problems.
These are things buyers will want to know about up-front. These at-a-glance counters reinforce why.
A news- and information-based website had been in place for a few years. Community development and engagement activities had been growing and the website needed to accommodate this increased need to provide more than just What’s On. In particular, the Committee of Management had identified the requirement to highlight community opportunities to shape and guide the future development of Deans Marsh.
Centred around a new Communications Strategy, the revamped website aims to centralise access to what’s happening, how to get involved, who to contact, and major projects for the town and its environs. “Community involvement” is the central theme for this forward-looking website that encourages participation.
The new website offers sections
To find out what’s happening and what you could join in with, just visit the Activities page on the Deans Marsh Community Cottage website. Planned ‘lifestyle’ courses, adult education, the monthly newsletter, local events such as Christmas Carols, requests for volunteers/assistance, community consultation events, and a handy month-view calendar are all on this page.
Dom had gone out on his own, setting up a business providing general electrical work and moving into the solar power industry – including the full specification and installation of both domestic and commercial solar power.
With the burgeoning solar industry boosted by State and Federal subsidies, Dom wanted to be sure to give a positive first impression to potential customers. Quality of service is personal for Dom.
So no flashy ads, outrageous claims, bargain-basement deals. Just honest service and assistance from a business that cares about the end result and the long term.
One of the more important considerations for solar power is the uniqueness of every location. It isn’t enough to provide a quote using Google Maps – a site survey is essential.
For an investment expected to last at least a quarter of a century, it’s something to get right. And Dom is very keen that his customers get it right-
The feel of the site reflects Dom’s personal commitment to quality and accurate advice, and the requirement to properly assess each situation.
The website was not mobile-friendly, and the business owners did not have direct access to make changes and updates to the web pages.
In addition, the site was a few years old and looking dated. In comparison to industry competitors, the site was not providing a positive first impression, nor was it encouraging business through repeated Calls To Action (eg. prompts to get in touch).
The website was completely rebuilt using the world’s most popular website system, overlaid with a “page builder” that makes it easy to update without technical skills.
The use of icons and plenty of white space, together with repeated suggestions to get in touch to discuss requirements, plus
Originally built with a ‘content management system’ that was (and arguably still is) quite difficult to manage and certainly not user-friendly, the Surf Coast Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMS) practice was looking for a modernised website that’s search-engine friendly. The portrayal of a professional and caring specialist medical service is the central theme for the website revamp.
Easy-to-find contact details, directions to the surgery, more information on the procedures and the highly-qualified and experienced people, and access to post-operative guides are notable elements of the new site.
Undertaking serious surgery, be it yourself, a loved one, or even a patient you are referring, is a significant life event. Providing confidence in the skills, experience and attitude of the surgeons involved goes a long way to alleviating some of the stress that comes with that event. This site aims to provide that confidence.
