Frequently Asked Question

What is a website designer?

A website designer is a professional who specialises in creating the layout, visual appearance, and usability of a website. They work on the overall look and feel of the site, ensuring it is aesthetically pleasing and user-friendly. We focus on crafting custom websites that reflect your brand and engage your audience.

What to look for in a website designer?

When choosing a website designer, look for experience, a strong portfolio, and good communication skills. It's also important to find someone who understands your business goals and can tailor the website to meet your specific needs. We pride ourselves on our expertise, our ability to deliver personalised designs, and our commitment to client satisfaction.

How long does it take to build a custom website?

For most service-type websites like tradies, interior designers, and restaurants, a website can typically be completed within 1-2 weeks. We focus on efficient project management and clear communication to ensure your website is delivered on time without compromising on quality.

(Wix, Squarespace) vs. Hand-made websites

While platforms like Wix and Squarespace offer convenient and cost-effective solutions, they often come with limitations in terms of customisation and functionality. Hand-made websites, like those crafted by Astro Media NZ, offer complete flexibility, scalability, and a unique design tailored to your business needs. Investing in a custom website can provide a more professional and personalised online presence, saving you the time and effort of trying to build it yourself.

Why choose a local website designer?

Choosing a local website designer, like Astro Media NZ, has several advantages. We understand the local market and can provide personalised service and support. Being in the same time zone means faster communication and more efficient project management. Plus, supporting local businesses helps strengthen the community.

Why are pictures so important for a website?

Pictures are crucial for creating an engaging and visually appealing website. High-quality images can significantly enhance the user experience and convey your brand's message effectively. We understand the importance of professional photos so we will come in-person to take them for you, ensuring your online presence looks polished and professional.

Why is having a Google Business listing important?

Having a Google Business listing is crucial for gaining more exposure and attracting local customers. It ensures your business appears prominently in search results and on Google Maps, providing essential information such as your address, hours, and contact details. Without a listing, you miss out on valuable space on the right-hand side of search results, where customers often look for quick business information. A well-optimised Google Business listing can enhance your online presence, drive traffic to your website, and ultimately increase sales.
