Website design, strategy and ongoing care

Helping you choose the best path online

Our website design process is simple. And effective.

We work with you to create a website that engages your target audience with authentic content that drives traffic and conversions.

Once the website is finished, we won't leave you to fend for yourself. We'll host the website for you, making sure it's fast and secure. We'll train you up to easily edit and add content. Avoca can also help you with longterm search engine optimisation, website support/updating and ongoing online strategy.

Not sure which way
to turn with your website?

We’ll look at where you are now, hear where you want to be, and help you make the right decisions to get the best website for your online business needs.

Is your website targeting the right people?

We'll help you plan and create the right website content to hold your customers’ attention, give them the answers they need and improve their online engagement.

Is your old website hurting your conversions?

Your website has to look great on all devices to generate conversions. Also, Google is increasingly using website speed and best practices as ranking factors in search results. We’ll take care of that for you.

“Working with Brendyn and Jan on the development of our website was a pleasure and they recognised the importance of promoting our shows, the venue and our team and put together a professional and accessible website for all users.

The website was built without any fuss and delivered fully on artistic merit. Avoca Design went beyond our expectations and we are always impressed with their skill and continued service."

“Brendyn and Jan have been wonderful to work with. Very easy to talk with and they are both good at listening to our concerns and or needs. They were also able to deliver well within our time constraints which was hugely appreciated!

We also felt that we could be completely honest when we were not sure about something too which I feel is really important.”

We are a full service website design agency

Website Design

Our specialty is creating a great looking website design that promotes the best features of your product or brand. Our core technologies provide mobile responsive web designs, flexible layouts and beautiful looking websites. 

Website Development

We provide website development services to craft the right online tool to grow your business online. We can develop website features such as e-commerce facilities, advanced web forms for registrations or an entire backend platform to manage events and festivals. 

Prototyping and user interface design

Great website design starts with a solid plan. While you can draw a website plan on paper, often a working, web based prototype is easier to understand and test. We build website prototypes to test usability, content flow and complex functionality before website design begins.

Your time is precious and double handling data entry is tedious. We can connect your site to many other online platforms. Product purchases sent to your accounting system, new leads sent to your CRM, talk to us about the possibilities. 

Website Analytics

Knowing your audience's behaviour on your website can greatly improve future website decision making. We build in Google Analytics into all our websites so you can always see who has been visiting and where they went on your website. 

WordPress Training

We pride ourselves on preparing our clients to self-manage their websites if they wish. We provide all clients with a built-in WordPress help library of video tutorials. We can also provide 1:1 WordPress training and website specific documentation.

Email Marketing

If you want to send beautiful looking emails that reflect your business branding and comply with the anti-spam regulations we have tools available to make this easy for you. Integrating email subscribe forms on your website makes it easy people to join your email list.

Social Media

Social media is a powerful tool which can help promote your business. We can integrate your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Trip Advisor presence with your website, encourage social sharing of pages or news items and help you come up with a strategy to keep information fresh on your website.

Target Audience
Development

A website should be designed around your customers needs. How well do know what they want, what problems they face, what motivates them to purchase your product or service? We can help you get clear on who to target and how to sell to them.

Ongoing website management and WordPress hosting

Launching your website is just the beginning

Effective websites, like effective businesses, should be nimble and able to adapt to changing circumstances. Updating software, tracking visitor behaviour, and monitoring your site’s performance are all vitally important but can drain your resources and take you away from your core business. That’s where we come in. Our website hosting and management plans are designed to give you total peace of mind.

Ongoing website management and support

Let us take care of your site’s ongoing management. We’ll keep you secure and up-to-date, with additional time available for extra support, content updates or advice on website growth. 

More than just managed WordPress Hosting

We do more than simply host, update and back-up your site. We use our expertise and bespoke WordPress technology stack to actively drive your business’ growth. 

Power up your website with our technology stack

We can enhance your site’s online growth by integrating our hand-picked selection of professional-level software suite and online services, valued at over NZD $2000 annually. 

Why WordPress? Versatile, flexible, easy

Our website design process is build around the WordPress Platform.

In non-geek speak, WordPress is probably the easiest and most flexible website creation tool in existence today. It is the most popular platform for website designers, currently powering around 30% of all the websites on the internet.

We take a great platform and further customise WordPress so its even easier for you to manage your website. Using our drag'n'drop page builder system and other tools, we carefully craft the ‘back-end’ of your website so that you don’t have to know about 'widgets' or code.

WordPress tutorials and training

We strongly support our clients to get involved with their website if they wish. All our websites come with a help library of WordPress tutorials and we can create video tutorials of any tasks needed to manage your website.

Why WordPress for your website? It's powerful and easy to use.
