Website Design & Development
For small businesses, charities, organisations and individuals
No matter the size and nature of your business, an effective, engaging and professional website should form the core of your online marketing activities. A professional website that delivers a great user experience and a good conversion rate is essential.
Whether you need a new website designed and developed, would like to redesign your current website or just need someone to take care of your website maintenance, we can help.
"Professional, efficient. Friendly, great follow up service and training. Thanks Ondetto for my beautiful website."

Websites should convert visitors into customers
We believe in assisting SMBs to take advantage of the many business opportunities online. A good website must be well designed, have a clear call-to-action and be easy to use.
All our web design and development projects begin with a thorough brief to get you thinking about what you really want to get out of your website.
That way we can ensure that the web design and development really focuses on your goals, ensuring a website experience that converts visitors into customers.
The design process
Our website designs are fully bespoke and created by our local graphic designer.
You are invited to brief us on your preferred colours, styles and fonts if you wish, or simply leave it up to us – you can get as involved as you like.
While most of our websites are custom designed, some clients prefer to use an existing design template and we are happy to help implement your chosen template.
"I really can't recommend Frederike at Ondetto highly enough: her attention to detail makes her a stand out choice when a truly bespoke website development is required."
- Ana Retallack, The Standard Companion
We generally use open-source technologies that are widely supported in the marketplace. We specialize in WordPress websites.
WordPress is an excellent content management system which allows us to build beautiful, functional websites easily. It is well supported and easy to use so that your website can grow with your needs. Adding on functionality even later on is usually not a problem.
Using WordPress as your content management system can also reduce ongoing costs as you are able to update the content of your website yourself rather than paying someone for every update (although we do of course offer the option for us to make updates for you).
All our websites are now responsive, which means they work on all different screen sizes from a desktop computer to your mobile phone.
Training & ongoing maintenance
Once your website is up and running, we schedule a training session to teach you how to make updates, including a written manual with screenshots. Of course we are always available to make updates for you on an ongoing basis too, as well as offering a website maintenance service to update software patches and plugins.
"Frederike provided training for us, including manuals so that we could make any small changes ourselves. She also provides a fantastic service where we can email her with any changes we require and she will update them from her end."
- Nicole Beardsley, LB Building
Costs and timings
We can generally deliver a new, custom designed website within 5-6 weeks if you are able to give us prompt feedback and provide website text and images to us on time. In some circumstances a faster turnaround is possible.
Pricing depends on several factors and we will provide a detailed quote upon initial discussion with you. As a guide, custom designed websites with 5-6 pages start at around $2,200 + GST. Additional functionality such as a blog, online shop, membership system or additional content will increase the cost. Most of the websites we create cost between $2,000 - $12,000 + GST.
