Site design and development
Whether you are starting a new business venture, want to completely replace an existing web site, or have never had a web site before, Chris McIntosh Design can help you. We will custom design a business site tailored specifically to your needs and the needs of your target market.
Domain names and hosting
Full-featured hosting, including comprehensive site visitor statistics and unlimited email addresses, can be arranged for you. We set everything up for you then you just pay the renewal fees directly to the providers when they are due - you aren't locked in to using our services in any way.
Updates and changes
If your web presence is due for an overhaul - or you just want to update some details - Chris McIntosh Design can make changes for you, promptly and affordably.
If your site requires regular updates we can help with that too! Do your products change regularly? Is your business growing rapidly? Don't have the skills to make changes yourself (or enough time to learn how)? Let us take care of your site so you can concentrate on other aspects of your business. We offer a fast and efficient maintenance service and have helped a variety of businesses - including information technology companies, real estate agents, retailers and wholesalers - keep their sites fresh and up-to-date.
Prefer to make changes yourself? We can add product databases and other administrative functions to your web site so that you can easily update your web site yourself.
E-commerce, selling online
Whether you are creating a new site or would like to add more functionality to your existing site, we can add an online ordering system so that users can purchase directly from your site. Existing third-party shopping cart software can be installed or we can custom build an application for your specific requirements. For convenience and security, live credit card processing can be incorporated - users pay online when they place their orders, using a secure transaction facility provided by an Australian bank.
Creating a web site is only the first step in promoting your business on the Internet. Your prospective customers need to be able to find your web site, and the first place most of them will look is at one of the "search engine" sites such as Google or Yahoo!
Search engines are just one way that people can find your web site - there are many others, both online and via other media. Chris McIntosh Design can advise you on the best way to promote your web site (and, by extension, your business).
Animation and Flash
Carefully designed animation can effectively communicate ideas, make more efficient use of "screen real estate" and enhance the user experience of visitors to your web site. From a simple animated logo to exciting banner ads and complex interactive features, we can design and build appropriate animation and Flash components for your web site.
