We develop websites from as small as a 1 page 'electronic brochure' up to 20 pages and more if required. All of our packages are all inclusive, not missing one service out. All you have to do is sit back in your own comfort whilst Miniwebs creates something special for your business.
As you may have noticed already the internet is becoming increasingly popular! Friends are talking about "this" website and "that" website, TV ads, radio ads, magazines, newspapers are all quoting their websites addresses. Facebook has become enourmous as well as so many other websites! Millions of people from all over the world are on the internet everyday looking up information and if your business does not have its own website - then how are these people going to find your services or products online?! Instead - they're finding other websites that are in competition with you!
With the Internet industry BOOMING, it is obvious that having a website is very important!
Since 2004, we've developed hundreds of websites for various small businesses around South Africa. With more than 18 years experience, we are excellent at using our initiative to develop appropriate websites suited to clients needs and for the type of business genre they're in. Web Design is online marketing and the way we present your products or services is vital for capturing your visitor's attention and keeping it ... and this is what we do! The purpose of your website is to represent your products / services in an attractive and informative presentation to get that deal, booking or product into a sales conversion as quick as possible. And we're good at this! Branding, marketing, showcasing, presentation, visual call-to-action links to get interested parties conversing and communicating.
Although most of our clients are in the hospitality environment (as you may notice in our portfolio below), we've also done a lot of web development for other industries from construction, organic products and beauty to NGO's etc. We have no limit to what industry we develop websites for. To see what the process is going forward with Miniwebs, then kindly scroll down to the FAQ section to find out more or simply contact us if you have any other questions that need answers.
Do you own a shop that sells products or are about to open up one but would also like to sell online too? Maybe you've come up with a business idea, work from home and would like to sell your products strictly online? Look no further!
Miniwebs can develop your business an easy to manage online shop where you yourself can upload new products, edit products, change pricing, put them on sale, add colour variations, size variations, offer customers the option of buying via EFT or using a 3rd party payment gateway for credit card transactions and more.
The beauty about having your own online ecommerce store is that it isn't limited to a typical 9 - 5 business day / 5 days a week but open 24hrs all week for those after hours product seekers. So you may just wake up in the morning with a few surprise orders and payments which should put a smile on your dial whilst enjoying that first hot cup of coffee!
Miniwebs won't leave you in the dark either in terms of how to operate, edit and update your online store. We will provide you with a clear and concise instruction manual with images for visual assistance. It's fun and easy especially when you're itching to expand your business online.
Now that you and millions of others worldwide all own at least one mobile device within arms reach - a responsive / mobile friendly website for your business isn't an option anymore but more of an obligation for 2 important factors.
Over 60% of the world browse the internet using their mobile device(s), whether it be a smartphone, tablet or small laptop. With these figures rising it is very important that your business' website is developed to cater / adapt and respond to mobile devices and the various screen sizes that they come in for enhanced readability and to allow users to navigate through your website relatively easily and without difficulty. Otherwise, a frustrating browsing experience could lead a visitor or potential business elsewhere.
Another very important factor began early 2015, when Google firmly announced that they were going to fully enforce their algorithms to prioritize mobile friendly websites to rank higher in search results above its antipode. If your rankings drop then so does business, therefore it's wise not to neglect the change in algorithms and act upon it as early as possible (besides, who wouldn't want a mobile friendly website with the way technology is going?). With that been said, if you website isn't mobile friendly already - then not only are you far behind but your business has most likely dropped in rankings whilst your rivals who do have mobile friendly websites have benefitted.
Whenever Miniwebs develops a new website - you can be sure it'll also be mobile friendly or technically also known as 'responsive'.
Whenever we develop a website, we always optimize our client's website for Google and other search engines. We strictly keep to Google's SEO guidelines without implementing any risky black-hat techniques that could result in getting banned from Google's search engines (and others).
Clientele support is part of our hosting service (as it should be) and we know that effecient and friendly support is the key to a good clientele / business relationship.
Our powerful server is fast, stable, safe and is maintained regularly for a reliable hosting 'infrastructure'.
We offer the following services when a client hosts their website with Miniwebs:
Perhaps you'd also like to get some brochures, business cards or something else printed for your business and need a professional to design it? No problem! Contact us and we can discuss it from there.
Our most popular package is an attractive, sleek and a modern website design using straight edges with a personal touch. This package is recommended, and is suited for any business / industry.
Oooh! Online sales now? Are you a proud new or veteran entrepreneur looking to expand your business online selling your fabulous products with an Ecommerce store to bring in "click" revenue? Look no further!
Already have a website but is due for a serious upgrade or needs to be mobile friendly? Feeling like your current designer / host has 'left ship' and gone awol? Why not transfer your domain name to our server and let us Host + take care of your website.
*This is our annual hosting fee.
Please contact us if you'd like any other upgrades / changes to your existing website, we will quote accordingly.
In Namibia? UK? Australia? No Problem! There's no such thing as borders in the web development industry nor do we need passports to do business. We proudly offer web design services for businesses in South Africa and abroad, whether you're in Switzerland or Costa Rica.
No distance will seperate you from your desired finished product.
Yes we do indeed. Our current packages all include 12 months free hosting. Our hosting service includes:
Your website's content, eg: text, photos, the odd extra page needed here and there all depending on the job load of course but Miniwebs isn't knit picky ;)
Note: We only offer the "free basic changes" service when you host your website with Miniwebs
Let's say we've developed your website + you've already payed for it and 3 months later you decide you'd like to add another 2 or 3 pages of content, then we may have to charge a small fee depending on the extra (additional) work involved. The same applies if you'd like to change the entire design of the website. However we are very fair and leniant. If there isn't much work involved, then we're not going to be petty and charge the client.
We will always notify a client beforehand if there's a small fee involved.
Of course, if you are uncertain with something in your online store's dashboard, feel nervous to make a certain change or have no idea what to do, then feel free to contact Miniwebs for support. But we will provide client's with a clear manual of instructions with images to help you make amends in your own time.
However the manual of instructions that will be provided will only really cover the online store / product section where self guidance and management is most needed as this is the core purpose of your website. Contact Miniwebs for any other edits / changes not covered in the instructions manual.
Development time can take from 2 days up to 2 weeks depending on the size of website, whether it's Ecommerce or not, demand, order que, client response and if there happens to be any other special requests involved. Please ask us and we will give you a more accurate time frame according to the job at hand.
If you wish to go ahead, then kindly take a look at the process which is very simple:
Domain name propagation from your current host to our server generally take 24 hrs - 48 hrs once the transfer ticket for the domain name has been accepted.
