Why say "Mills Web Design - Sydney Orange Bathurst” vs “Everywhere”

Why do we say “Mills Web Design – Sydney Orange Bathurst” when we can service clients anywhere?

As you may know, the fortunate thing about web design is that we can provide service to clients anywhere in the world so you might ask why we bother specifying service areas at all?

Don’t get us wrong – you don’t have to be in Bathurst, Orange or Sydney. You can be in Melbourne or Perth for all it matters but if you are one of those people where meeting face to face is what you prefer, we have to give you something to work with – and that’s why we say “Mills Web Design – Sydney Orange Bathurst” – because it is in these three places that we are able to meet with you if that is your preferred way of working.

Having said that, don’t be put off by these words if you are outside of Bathurst, Orange or Sydney. Many of our clients stretch beyond these locations – from Queensland down to Tasmania. We provide web design and support to them regularly and in many cases have come to know them as people quite well .

In conclusion, it doesn’t matter where you are. But if your preferred way of working is to meet those you deal with, you now know where to find us.

The mobile compatible website - we utilise the more effective approach

A website which is mobile compatible usually achieves this in one of two ways:

a) The website detects the device viewing it and displays an alternative theme which is designed to be more user friendly with the smaller screen size.

b) The website does not care what the device is. It takes into account the browser window size. The content repositions itself to contantly fit within the window regardless of the device.

The downfall of a) is that there are so many different devices out there, it is difficult for a website to be configured to recognise them all. The website may produce mobile compatible content if viewed on the common iPhone, but what about the many other devices that are not mainstream? Every time a new device comes out on the market, can you trust that the site owner is going to arrange for the site to be updated to recognise that new device?

This is why b) is a better option. It will just work all the time. That is why we use this method.

We also recognise that mobile compatibility should not be a premium option that costs extra, and that is why is it just part of what you get with a website by Mills Web Design. In this day and age, mobile compatibility is just expected.

Sourcing a web designer? Useful questions to ask...

  • Are their sites responsive?
  • Do they cater for iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows phone?
  • Do they offer the option of a Q and A phone session to write your content for you at no extra cost?
  • Do they provide an admin panel so you can administer your content?
  • Does their admin panel provide an easy to use drag and drop interface?
  • Do their sites have built in security that locks out intruders and informs you when this happens?
  • Do their sites have built in statistics and reporting which you can view in the admin panel?
  • Do their sites perform regular backups automatically?
  • Does their portfolio step up to the mark?
  • Does their own website reflect their level of professionalism?
  • Do they provide a mockup design first so you can negotiate what you are getting?
  • Is their technology trusted and popular, or bespoke, putting you at risk of vendor ransom?
  • Do they cater for all major browsers, including internet explorer 7?

Web Design Sydney

Looking for web design in Sydney? We are able to provide professional websites that really step up to the mark but can often come in at half the cost of what most other web designers quote in the Sydney area.

Web Design is often cheaper in the country areas because the office overheads and cost of living is lower.

To the Sydney business, web design in Sydney may still be the preferred choice even though the cost is higher as many people prefer to deal with local designers.  The ability to meet and discuss requirements face to face is often the preferred choice.

We combine the best of both worlds.  Our resources are in Bathurst, keeping the overheads down, yet we often move between Bathurst and Sydney to do business meaning we can meet with you face to face to discuss requirements if that is preferred.

This means professional results can cost half as much as what you might pay elsewhere, yet you still get the quality of service you can expect from dealing with someone local.

Check out our portfolio – if the quality steps up to your expectations and you wish to have a chat about your requirements and our pricing to deliver them, give us a no obligation call.

Professional Web Design at Low Prices

We are so confident of providing low quotes that we say this: “If you can find a quote lower than ours which offers a comparable scope of work we will aim to beat it“.

We don’t wish to provide any specific pricing structures on this website and give that visibility to competitors but we can provide some indications of how we compare with quotes.

Some examples:

A sole trader in Sydney was quoted by a Melbourne Web Design company $1700 for a 5 page Content Management System. We quoted for the same, coming in at $850. That is half of their former quote.

A Mudgee business was quoted by a Sydney Web Design company $9, 900 for a full featured content management system to manage their products and services. This client approached us for a second quote to see the comparison. We quoted $2100 for the same job. We were not aware of the other competitor until they told us this later. That is just over one-fifth of their former quote.

After we completed a website for this client they posted a thank you in their news section expressing their appreciation of the great results they got from Mills Web Design without the high prices that come with it – read it here. (Thanks Nic!)

Take a look out our Testimonials section – you don’t have to read very many before you come across various mentions from a “value for money” perspective.

It is not just our website costs which are competitive, but we can provide low cost hosting as well. We are happy to be transparent there – $54 per year – unlimited email addresses, unlimited bandwidth, 25Gb of space. We often come across people spending $150 – $200 per year for the same thing.

Need a Quote? Got 15 minutes for a quick chat on the phone?

Give us a call, and we can ask you a series of pre-determined questions to gather the required info for a quote which typically takes ten to fifteen minutes. We are also happy to have a consultation style discussion if you need to better understand the different options available to you.
