We have provided a number of offerings that are worth over $2500 so you can gain value and grow your customer online and physical space including:

Mr. Yum / Menulog type site with ten products included.
The Mr Yum / menulog type site is best suited to those who deliver or allow pickups and want to move away from the excessive charges from Uber, Deliveroo etc. and manage it themselves. We will build the website ready to take orders, charge delivery fees and take payment. The system will be easy to use and operate with full instructions provided to add more products yourself and manage orders.

Ecommerce shop with ten products included.
The e-commerce shop option is perfect for a new retailer or an existing business that wants to start selling online. We will build the website ready to take orders, shipping, coupons and take payment. The system will be easy to use and operate with full instructions provided to add more products yourself and manage orders.

Online booking website
The online booking website is perfect for businesses who provide services requiring appointments, including health and beauty, trades or finance/tax. We will create a fully integrated booking system that will connect with Google calendar, allowing you to receive notifications on your phone. Changing times or adding services or consultants can be completed by the owner with full instructions provided.

Landing page/standard five-page site with a logo or 5 hours maintenance/security service for a year.
You may not require anything too advanced for your website and want it to focus more on representing what you do and who you are. This option provides a well designed and easy to navigate website that integrates your Google reviews and your Facebook or Instagram profile displaying the latest posts. Your website will be dynamic and SEO friendly to put you in the best position for ranking higher on Google, and therefore more traffic to your website. In addition to this, we will offer either a newly designed logo or 5 hours of maintenance/security for a year.

Website audit with SEO improvements.
You already have a website, but you aren’t getting the traffic you need or the sales. Design Grid will provide a complete website audit providing you with a report and recommendations. We will work with you to identify the most effective solution for your website, including improving your SEO and any glitches that might impact your ranking. In three months, we will assess the changes and provide additional improvements.

Content Management – LOCAL HIT
To help your website reach your ideal customer, you need the keywords to get them there. Using our agency-level tools, we can write several content pieces and/or rewrite the existing content on your website to get you into the search engine results targeting your customers. Content will be written based on your feedback, competitor research and analytical data and scheduled to be posted at a natural rate.

Online Newsletter – LOCAL HIT
Online newsletters are a great way of knowing who your customers are and obtaining recurring sales. Our newsletter solution can be in-built into any WordPress-built website. A drag-and-drop interface with our customised manual makes it easy for you to take over and create your newsletters quickly, knowing there are no monthly or ongoing costs. The online newsletter system can also be used to create abandoned cart emails and more upsell features. As part of this package we will integrate this into your site, design and customise newsletters for you and provide you with a customised manual so that you can manage this yourself moving forward.

All our websites built include:

  • Domain and hosting with email for the first year
