Compliance: With over 15 years experience under our belts we adhere to accepted industry methods and our code largely conforms to W3C standards. We cut our teeth on HTML (1) in the days before Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) were used (and mobile phones were a distant dream). We now write code with HTML5 and CSS3 and keep abreast of evolving web and mobile standards.
Mobile Ready: Websites will be built in a ‘responsive’ manner allowing them to display correctly on most mobile devices and phones.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO): We use standard industry techniques in HTML to make sure your website is optimised for Search engines and is easily discovered and indexed by them. We focus pages for the correct keywords and keyphrases. We are well aware of black-hat and unsavoury techniques that are frowned upon by Google
*This price includes 6 pages. Additional pages can be ordered for R500 ea.

Joomla CMS (headache fee)
Joomla is not a system we like working with. It is unnecessarily complex and difficult for our clients to use.
