WEBSITE DESIGN WHANGAREI WORK FROM HOME

WEBSITE DESIGN WHANGAREI WORK FROM HOME BUSINESS MODEL

Lets describe the business model, website design and development is an occupation that is very much online, given the correct equipment and the right software I would work mostly from home, but this job is portable in terms of where I can work and my customer base is anywhere in New Zealand I am also able to offer these services to overseas clients, I have made free from charge a website for my sister who is an entertainer jazz singer in Adelaide. The services I am able to offer is determined by the software I have at my disposal.

Almost all software is available on subscription the reason for this is the huge amount of updates that occur, professional software on subscription comes with automatic updates, the internet is global almost all software is purchased online from large international corporations

The services I would like to offer software allowing are

Website Design @$75.00 per hour, many software programs are needed for this and will be listed below, I am currently using a subscription website builder agency version multi licence cost is about $300.00 US dollars per year. because this is an agency version it is brand-able. I have branded it as Kiwi Page Builder here https://kiwipagebuilder.com/

Business cards logo design brouche design This would require software such as smart mock ups, the prices for smart mock up starts from US $9.00 for a single user to US $29.00 for up to 10 users cost is per month.

Please keep in mind here that my goal is not only to gain employment for myself but also to help and encourage other disabled and unemployed people to start working, so for that propose the US $29.00 per month option would be a better option long term because we could end up with up to ten people using the program, I would then be able to teach others to use this software, I could look at outsourcing work to these people, Mock ups pricing here https://smartmockups.com/pricing

Printing would be outsourced, price per project, this is part of a one stop shop strategy where we not only design the websites we also design the business cards and printing, T shirts and coffee mugs if required

Google AdWords creation and management Starting from $150.00 Per Month

Google analytics and integration

SEO Search engine optimisation, search engine optimisation is the work required to ensure customers websites can be found online.

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the online visibility of a website or web-page in a web search engine such as Googles unpaid results—often referred to as "natural", organic or earned" results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a website appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine's users; these visitors can then be converted into customers. SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search video search academic news search, and industry-specific search engines. SEO differs from local search engine optimisation in that the latter is focused on optimizing a business' online presence so that its web pages will be displayed by search engines when a user enters a local search for its products or services. The former instead is more focused on national or international searches.

Charge out rate for search engine optimisation is @ $100.00 per hour plus gst

Lets talk barriers and disability, My disability percentage has been tested in a medical appeals authority decision in 1987, a decision was made that i was 85% disabled, this was in response to W&I wanting to have me tested annually the decision in 1987 meant I was never again required to compile with yearly revisions, it also let providers like work-bridge better understand my disability.

When I walk my disability certainly sticks out so people can see, the unseen part of my disability is breathing my airway is only one tenth in size to a normal airway it also bypasses my vocal cords, rendering my vocal cords unusable, for many years I was unable to talk, I learnt to talk without vocal cords this took a long time, years, however I have very little volume in my voice, I am looking for a way to overcome this barrier, and require funding to do this.

I believe I have found some answers, the original idea we come up with was to use a call centre, I was concerned that any funding could quickly be used by having a call centre, another big consideration is to get the phone ringing in the first place.

I have come up with two good ideas which will be better than a call centre.

Live Chat

Live chat as below I have installed a trail version onto my website today the fully functioning trail lasts for seven days, I will then be given the option to continue with the free version which is very basic with few functions as I am applying for funding for the fill version I will drop back to the free version upon completion of the trail period, until such time as we can confirm funding.

The full version of live chat cost is $30.00 US dollars per month the pricing for live chat is here https://www.tidiochat.com/en/pricing

I have made it very clear that I think my voice is the biggest barrier to getting work I have tried after 5 events, chamber of commerce events etc, I have explained to you that when 25 or 30 people are all in a room talking I am unable to be heard because of lack of volume people then start to assume what i might be saying this is not a good way to promote, but I have always wanted the opportunity to establish myself within the network of business groups including chamber of commerce

I have been informed about The Orchard operating in the Whangarei CBD, Gail after you visited on Wednesday I went and spoke about much the same thing with two women at CCS in Kamo they told me about the orchard operating within the Whangarei CBD. Looking at the website it looks absolutely ideal for working networking and promoting myself I would have contact with business people in a creative working environment. they have a plan called hot desking as below, I have chosen 12 days a month I will tomorrow if the weather is fine go and have a look at the accessibility, I think this ticks a lot of boxes I beleive at least over summer I could attend 12 days a month, I expect to meet a lot of younger tech people to bonce ideas off. I would love to make this happen but it will be funding depentant I may also be able to negoeate a more flexable deal once I have face to face contact which hopefully will happen tomorrow.

The Orchard is a collaborative business and event space for the growing community of entrepreneurs, start-ups and already established business professionals in Northland.

WEBSITE DESIGN WHANGAREI WORK FROM HOME CHECKLIST

Working from home certainly doesn’t suit everyone. And while giving up the daily commute and working at home might sound amazing, it’s necessary to give real thought as to whether it will really work for you.
My Home office setup I have 3 computers all running windows 10 and networked. Website Design Whangarei Business requirements. A good knowledge of internet and search engine protocols. A sound background in digital design and online publishing, graphic design skills and color matching abilities, HTML and CCS coding are important

EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS

☐ Computers I have three HP computers, two desk tops and one laptop all computers run Windows 10 with I7 high speed processors and a secure network

☐ Software requirement I have or need software such as my Kiwi Page Builder agency software, this software has an annual subscription. Funding if available should be used to purchase software subscriptions such as inpixio or Photoshop professional photo editing software, websites can be image heavy, professional software is required, I am unable to quote prices on this plan as I would need to be able to install a trail version before deciding on the best software

☐ Page Builder Software, this has an annual subscription fee currently around $300.oo per year

☐ I have reliable, high speed fibre Internet access, currently $110.00 per month

☐ A quality workspace complete with desk, ergonomic chair, lighting, printer, copier,

$100.00

☐ Microsoft Office 365 $165.00 annually plus other software necessary for the job.
☐ Well stocked up on office stationery.

DETERMINE IF IT’S A FIT FOR YOU
☐ I am self-motivated and disciplined? I can get work done without having others giving me motivation?

☐ I am confident in my abilities to work without supervision?

☐ I am happy spending a lot of time alone, my home office is settled into the bush while being near a road, I have a dog cats an abundance of native birds and fish

☐ I can have face-to-face interaction, or communication via email, phone, chat, or video conference.

☐ Is your home big enough? I have set an area equal to one third of my property that can be used for my office space.

☐ I live alone in the house, so I can work uninterrupted

WORKFLOW
☐ Charge out rates, the website cost to the customer can be as low as $699.00 for a basic 3 t0 5-page website, the customer must supply the website content. A standard business website of 5 pages starts from $999.00. A custom website from $2500.00. Prices would move up from there. Given content by a customer I would expect to be able to produce a basic 3 to 5-page website in one day. Any photoshopping etc required would be charged at $75.00 per hour above the basic price Given content by a customer I would expect to be able to produce a 5-page business website in one to two days. Any photoshopping etc required would be charged at $75.00 per hour above the basic price Given content by a customer I would expect to be able to produce a custom-made website with the required number of pages to a deadline remembering that the charge out rate of between $75.00 and 100.00. Any photoshopping etc required would be charged at $75.00 per hour above the basic price. Finished prices can run to many thousands of dollars

☐ Standard hourly rate for website design and photo retouching work would be $75.00 + gst per hour. SEO work would be charged at $100.00 per hour + gst

☐ Software such as smart mock-ups would also be required, this as with almost all software is charged at an annual subscription fee currently priced about US $150.00 annually, the addition of this software would allow my business to offer far more services such as business cards advertising brochures and other advertising material

☐ As a hosting provider as a website developer designer I pay for a high-speed re-seller hosting subscribing monthly cost to me is $100.00 per month. As a re-seller I can sell my customers hosting space online to host their websites. My hosting packages start at $20.00 + gst per month, hosting with page builder access is $30.00 + gst. It is intended that the income earned from the first 5 or 6 customers paying hosting will cover my hosting costs, I believe I have space to host 25 or more websites before
my costs would increase, hosting costs to my customers is per month but paid annually in advance

MAKING IT WORK

☐ Structuring my day. Set yourself regular working hours and stick to them.

☐ Tell friends and family that you’re ‘at work’ during your working hours. Often, those close to you think that if you’re home, then it’s OK to call or pop in for a chat.

☐ Take regular breaks.

☐ Save your work to the cloud with One_Drive. That way, you can take your work with you if you need a change of scenery.

☐ Switch off at the end of the day. Do not be tempted to check your email after the working day has finished.

I have prepared this business plan for W & I Work brokers plan is dated 3-09-2018 Gail as a footnote to our discussions I have prepared this information for you I am unable to go into to much detail at this stage. Moving forward I have done a lot of work in improving my own website as well as making my community websites, we spoke about employing a local call centre, the internet is changing so very fast any funds may be wiser spent on instant chat which is an online version of a call centre.
Really from my point I need to know for sure if there is funding available and how much that funding is before making decisions on spending the funding, I still believe a call centre or instant chat is the way to go, but I also need the software to do the job
and better compete with my peers.
