Why should I get a web site?

Web sites can be one of the most cost effective marketing options if they are done properly. One of the biggest mistakes people make when they design the layout of websites is that they don't lead their clients through the buying or thought process in the correct way. When a web site is made correctly it can be a powerful marketing tool that can generate new business and service existing business. The setup costs for a web site are similar to printing a hard copy brochure but the web site can be 'handed out' time and time again to many thousands of people with little ongoing cost.

Why should I get The Net Foundry to make my new site?

The Net Foundry difference is that we make sites that are based on sound marketing principles and your goals. We don't really see ourselves as making web pages but instead making sure your business is successful online. Anyone can make just web pages but making a site that works comes from experience, attention to detail and an understanding of how consumers behave online. By using the Net Foundry you get the best return from your investment in a web site and one that works.

How do I get my site?

We upload your site to a web server, where you then have password-protected access to make changes, add pages or delete pages. We also supply your new site on CD.

How long does it take to get my new website?

A typical turnaround time is six weeks from start to finish. This varies on how long it takes to get the text to us, supply pictures, etc. If you require the site sooner let us know.

Why should I host my site with The Net Foundry?

We have searched the web to find the best hosting packages. We purchase our web space wholesale from a US company where the market is more mature and they provide battery backup for the web servers, security on the building they are housed in and extremely fast connections with redundant backups to the Internet. More importantly we are here in case you have a problem. All this means that you ultimately get a level of service and reliability that many locally housed products would find hard to match.

If I get The Net Foundry to make a web site do I have to host it with The Net Foundry?

No. When you purchase the site you own it and can host it anywhere you wish. We would be happy to set it up wherever you choose to host it. Conversely we also host sites that other people have designed.

Why does Net Foundry hosting cost more than some others?

There is an adage, 'you get what you pay for'. Net Foundry hosting provides as standard a number of services that other hosting providers charge extra for. We don't charge for bandwidth or the amount of visitors to your site, our standard hosting package gives you up to 40 meg of space, you receive unlimited email addresses, we provide at no extra cost detailed marketing intelligence about the visitors to your site. The marketing intelligence we provide allows you make informed decisions about how to develop your site and ultimately saves you money in the long run. For the little bit extra in hosting charges you ultimately get a lot more service.

My cousins friends son says he can make the same type of thing for $500

He probably can and if you really wanted a $500 site we could make that for you - but we don't want to. You wouldn't get the QA procedures we have in place and most importantly the quality of the site would reflect on your business. It's easy to save time on a job by not having any attention to detail. You don't want to let your business down by trying to sacrifice quality, especially where the image of your business is concerned, it's a false economy.

It doesn't cost as much as other companies charge

A lot of media companies, especially in the capital cities are charging a lot more to set up Internet sites, with figures of $18k not being uncommon. We still provide you with the marketing aspect of your new site, designing it around what consumers will require and putting in a lot of effort to make sure your site is successful. We don't see ourselves as just making web pages but making sure your business is successful online.
