With modern responsive design techniques, there’s no reason to have two sites built (one for desktops and another for mobile devices). Nor is it any more expensive. With a responsive design, your site will magically adjusts to suit the device using CSS media queries (which detect the pixel width of your screen). Shrink the border of your browser to see how this site displays in a slimmer window (that’s exactly what we do when testing designs).
Google’s April 21st 2015 roll-out meant that a lot of non-mobile ready websites were removed from search results pages (or penalised). Google is trying to clean up the web by delivering the best possible experience to users. 30-40% of current website traffic now mobile.
Don’t get hit with Google’s Mobilegeddon. All our websites work on phones, tablets, iOS devices, phablets, laptops and desktops. None of our clients were penalised by Mobilegeddon.
Your site can be easily updated in-house. All you need is a username and password. You can add as many pages as you like and blog every day if you wish – even with our basic sites.
Some of our clients get us to update their sites, so what we often do is clean up ugly pages and make everything look attractive. If it’s just a matter of uploading your word doc, we wll do that for free. In fact, if anything takes less than 12 minutes to do – we do it as part of the hosting and maintenance of your site.
Support is available 5 days per week during normal office hours from 8am-6pm.
Read about your webmaster (Edwin) here. Edwin is currently writing a book for non-coders who want to manage their website effectively. Geoffrey Multimedia clients will get the Kindle ebook for free.
We are more than happy with the ongoing site maintenance, and your quick and responsive tech support as well as your all of your ideas – It is clear that you know your stuff and love what you do – it is reflected in your work. Overall – a tonne of great value!

All our sites are 100% upgradeable. All that really means is that we keep the base code of your Content Management System (CMS) always secure and up to date. Your site is ready for an upgrade at any time. Geoffrey sites are literally future proof and can be upgraded at a discount after one year.
Hosting & Maintenance covers; hosting, domain name/s, site security, some site tweaks and monthly software updates. Read more about what we do when it comes to maintaining your website.
We do not believe in outsourcing because the quality of work is always bad. Because website price information is so readily available, people working in countries such as India or the Phillippines (where most Australian web companies outsource) end up costing the same. The site might look the biz, but your new website might also get you banned from Google because it is utilising black hat SEO practices.
All work is done in Perth, Western Australia. Having said that, most of our clients are in Queensland. We’re not really sure why that is but we get a lot of work out of Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. Because of the distance, we work harder to please inter-state clients. We also have clients in Tasmania, South Australia, Victoria and throughout NSW.
Upon receiving an initial deposit of 40%, we immediately start work building your website based on our discussions and mock-ups. When your site is up and functioning we will invoice you another 30%. Then we go through your final changes before the website finally goes live. The final 30% is billed when you are happy with the overall look, feel and functionality.
Once all bills are paid and your site is live, we continue work on some basic SEO elements of your site. We let Google know where you are an monitor your site through Google’s Search Console (formerly Webmaster Tools).
Due to recent job losses in the mining industry, we now include monthly plans.
The process can take between 1 and 8 weeks depending on the complexity.
Once we receive your first payment we immediately start building your site. In a few weeks your site will be ready to view and revise – just as if you had built it outright.
All sites are built in Perth, Western Australia. We have servers in Australia, Singapore, UK & USA.
Stop noodling. Or if you already have a website, at least noodle alongside a professional by getting one of our website maintenance plans.
