This can vary depending on how soon you can send me the content for your site (text,images,logo etc..). We take up to ten days on our subscription packages, otherwise this depends on my work load give or take and the scope of your project. Clients not getting their website content to me in a timely fashion is what usually causes project delays.

Will there be any down time during the switch to your service?
There is virtually no downtime required to switch your service to Success Stream. We build your new website on our own server so that it does not interfere with your current website. Once your site is finished, you have given us the green light to cut your new site over and your domain (www.yourgym.com) is redirected to your new Success Stream Site the only downtime is the time it takes for your domain settings to propagate online. This can be as short as 10 minutes or up to 24hrs. Whilst this is dependent on your domain registrar we find it normally it takes less than an hour.
What happens to my old site if I sign up to Success Stream?
When we build your new Success Stream site we do so on our own server. This means that your old site is not interfered with at all. Once your new Success Stream site is complete you will be asked to supply us with your domain details and permission for us to redirect your domain name (www.yourbusiness.com) to your new Success Stream site. Once the domain has propagated your old website will no longer appear on your domain name, instead your new site will appear. Your old site will remain on your old hosting account so that you can return to that site should you ever like to. It will be up to you from there to cancel your old hosting account should you wish to. We recommend that you take a copy of your old website before cancelling your existing hosting account in case you ever need it.
Why is your service in AUD dollars?
Because we sell websites all over the world we wanted to package our websites in a way that was going to be easiest for the majority of our clients. We have found that the AUD currency is the most convenient currency for people to comprehend and convert into their local currencies. As such, we trade in AUD dollars.
Does my Success Stream subscription include hosting?
Yes. Your new Success Stream subscription includes high speed WordPress hosting. If you have an existing hosting package with another supplier you will be able to cancel this once you move to our service. And if this is a brand new website you will not need to purchase hosting before contacting us. All you will need to do is purchase a domain name, which we can assist with if you like.
If I switch to Success Stream will it effect my Google Rankings?
We know how important your SEO is to your business. It is true that changing your website can have a negative effect on your Google ranking, however, there are several things that we do to avoid this and set you up so that your site will perform much better in the long term. If your current site is performing really well on search engines at the moment we recommend you sign up for a custom site build with Success Stream rather than a standard template build. This will allow us to mimic your existing page permalinks (eg: www.yourbusiness.com/about-us/) and use 301 redirects to redirect the traffic associated with your old website to your new site.
Aside from setting up your site like this during the build all our Success Stream also come with access to SEO By Yoast, are submitted to the search engines for indexing upon completion, are boosted by our partner SEO services and are built with clean code that makes your site easy for the search engines to index.
We also have training videos to help you to continue to optimize your site for the search engines as you create content to attract your audience.
Does my Success Stream subscription include email hosting?
No, your monthly subscription to Success Stream does not include any email hosting. We don’t believe that traditional email hosting is the best service for businesses as it can often be temperamental. For this reason we do not offer traditional email hosting. Instead we offer Google Apps set ups through our Google partner. Google Apps For Work brings you the power of the cloud, with access to over 150 premium apps and the very best customer support. Contact us for more information on our Google Apps For Work product. If you are not interested in this kind of email set up and would prefer a traditional email host then we recommend you set your own email hosting up with your domain registrar. They can look after your email and domain name registration and we can look after your website needs.
Are there any extra fees?
The only other fees that I charge are if you require additional pages or features not originally built into the site.
What's the difference between a website developer and a website designer?
For the most part a web designer works with the front end of a website – working on layout, graphics, styles and basically how your website will look. A web developer deals almost exclusively in code and programming languages and works on the back end functionality of a website. These days the lines between designer and developer have merged giving rise to what is known as a full-stack developer. I am equipped to work with both code & programming (technical aspects) and also design (functionality & asthetics) bringing these 2 disciplines together.
Can I edit the website myself?
Yes you can – All websites I build have a content management system which allows you to login and make changes to text content, add images to pages, upload PDF documents, add blog posts & YouTube videos. We do though, include this service in our packages.
I have an old static website. Can you update it?
In the case of older websites It would essentially need to redesigned to a modern, responsive and optimised website.
What if I am not happy with the design?
While every effort is made to create a quality website that reflects your business, I understand that not all clients will be satisfied and that’s perfectly ok. However if you would like to proceed beyond the allocated hours for your project then extra fees may apply until you’re happy with the design. The deposit is non refundable except under special circumstances, please see Terms & Conditions.
Can you redesign my current website?
Yes I can providing the scope of the project is not too complex. In most cases if its a very old site I would simply design a new one to replace it with. I would also need to re-consider any projects that have problematic pages, url and page structures. Keep in mind that my services are really for smaller websites not large multipage giants.
Do you build Ecommerce websites?
Yes we build e-commerce websites (online stores)..
I live in another state. Can you still build my website?
Yes we work nationally. We work very closely with our clients in person and through video conferencing.
