- Keep everything website related under one ‘roof’ with our competitive hosting and domain prices.
- Rest easy knowing your site is being looked after with all-inclusive maintenance packages
- SEO plans to drive customers to your website and make sales!
We put YOU back in the drivers seat
Future-proofed from the get-go, your website is built on the world-leading CMS WordPress.
- WordPress is 100% free, open source software with no monthly licensing fees.
- By using WordPress and not a “proprietary system”, we give you complete ownership over your website code and design, so you’re not locked in with us.
- We’ve extended WordPress to make it easier than ever for YOU to take charge of your everyday website changes…
With every new website, we include a complimentary license for the premium drag-and-drop page builder Elementor (valued at $99/year). With hundreds of elements to choose from and absolutely no coding required, your website can grow with your business.
Frequently Asked Questions about Website Design
Even with an extensive design brief, designers rarely get the job done perfectly the first time. Every designer will deal with this differently; some will charge you hourly for any additional changes while others include a certain number of revisions in their quote, then bill you if you go over that number.
At Thorn Creative, we do things differently. We offer unlimited design revisions with all quoted work at no extra cost. We have yet to meet another agency that offers this.
Yes! WordPress powers more than 34% of the internet for good reason. It is the most flexible and robust CMS system out there. But don’t worry, we will show you how to update it yourself!
If your website is on another platform, we can migrate it to WordPress for you. Contact us to find out more!
We build all websites using the self-hosted version of WordPress, which means you will need to pay for hosting each year to keep your site online.
We offer affordable managed hosting plans specifically for WordPress, however if you wish to host your site elsewhere that is OK too.
No! Although we are based in Perth, Thorn Creative is a virtual agency. We have no office by design; low overheads for us, means lower costs to you!
If we are nearby, we can arrange to meet in person at your favourite coffee shop, at your business or via online conferencing software, easy peasy.
Yes, this is actually what we recommend!
Rather than going in hard and blowing your retirement savings on a big flashy website, start off small. Work out your MVP (Minimal Viable Product) and GROW from there.
Use those savings to invest in marketing your smaller site, and get those customers rolling in!
Google will give you bonus points for this too; a smaller starting website that is regularly updated will get more ranking points than a bigger site that doesn’t get touched.
Definitely! We’re a small business too; and completely understand that you’ve got better things to do!
So we have designed several site management packages to take that thorn out of your side. Find site management plans here >
Yes absolutely! Let us know what level access you would like and we will set that up for you. If you want full admin access (same as us!) thats totally fine. Or, if you’re worried about messing things up we can give your team limited access too.
How long is a piece of string?
Rather than trying to create packages and rigid pricing tiers, we prefer to run things ‘old school’.
By working on a quote model, we can ensure that only the features you NEED are included, and we can work around your budget. That might mean we start off with a simpler site now, and add the eCommerce shop later… it all depends on YOU.
But, since you’re here looking for pricing, brochure style sites (standard information) start at $950.
Usually we require a 50% deposit upfront, then 50% on completion (or at 60 days, whichever comes first), however we understand that a website can be an investment, so we can offer monthly payment plans.
Yep, sure can! You know its important to keep your branding consistent across all platforms; in print and online.
Entrust your complete branding to Thorn Creative and maintain your brand.
