Website Development & SEO

Website Development, Complete New Builds, SEO & Analytics

If you wonder whether you need website development to optimise an existing site or build a new one from scratch but are really nervous about your small business budget, keep reading because you'll be surprised.

I've worked with lots of clients who are putting up with a website that may look OK on the frontend, but is not delivering at all.

It is truly amazing what you can learn when it's functioning properly. I was never a stats person before I started this. Now I LOVE analysing the data for my clients and seeing their growth from implementing website tweaks and SEO.

Firstly we offer a free analysis of your site and make recommendations for improvements so you know exactly what's working, what isn't and what needs to be done to grow your business.

What's important for you is that it's not just some shonky frontend site... it WORKS!

We're talking:

  • Mobile responsive, of course!
  • Social media optimisation
  • Basic onsite SEO
  • Keyword research
  • Meta optimisation
  • Indexing optimisation
  • Submission to Google and other search engines
  • Google Analytics set up and goal tracking

We're quick and efficient, and really affordable too.

Check out some of my recent projects...

Hearts Desire Homewares

Hearts Desire Homewares initially wanted to engage me for social media content and management, but when I analysed where the traffic would go it became obvious that they needed a complete website rebuild. There is no point driving people to your site if they don't have a smooth path to making a purchase once they get there!

Having invested fairly recently in a new site, it was a shock for them to consider finding more budget.  However, they understood the rationale to spend money to make money, and could see that it would be worth it.

Within a year, online sales have gone from zero to 20% of their business. Read more about it in the Case Study.

Fresh Start Kitchens

Fresh Start Kitchens didn't have a website and needed one up and running quickly to coincide with new premises being launched. This is a good example of a client who is super busy and needed to entrust us to build the site with little input.

It can be a real plus for small business to work with TUBU Collective because we're capable of delivering a great site even with a narrow brief.  We can source images, write all the content, add the SEO and project manage the whole thing.

Michael said, "Catherine is very helpful.  She likes to know the history and the future plan of our business to help us aim in the right direction. 
She was very flexible to help with my availability.  Definitely will recommend."

Creative Nature Landscape Services

Creative Nature Landscapes needed a more modern, better functioning site that was mobile responsive so it made sense to build it from scratch. This is our second site using WordPress Gutenberg and I'm really happy with how it has turned out. So is the owner of the site, thankfully! I'm really excited about this new editing tool. It's so fast and dynamic and is fantastic for site owners as well because it is SO user-friendly.

We can custom-build blocks (like Creative Nature's 'before and after' and 'testimonials') and get really creative but at the core of what we do is to not over-complicate the backend with code.  You should be able to make changes yourself if you want to (I'm equally as pleased to manage it for you, ongoing!)

Which Web Platforms?

Platforms to choose from...

If we're building from scratch our preference is WordPress and we have already built two with their very latest editing tool, Gutenberg.

Which platform to choose for your website? Read all about that as well as what Gutenberg means to you, here.

If you're looking for web updates and optimisation then we work across all key platforms: WordPress, Shopify, Squarespace and Wix.

For website tweaks we can add:

  • E-commerce
  • Bespoke forms
  • Connect & sync with eBay
  • Connect & sync with Mailchimp
  • AfterPay
  • Full SEO packages
  • New themes
  • Whatever you need...

Insignia Crew website revamp

Insignia Crew is a great example of how some tweaks to an existing site has a great impact on business.

I recently received a message from Company Director, Andrew Holme which read...

"A short note to personally thank you for all your efforts and time over the last few months.  There is no doubt in my mind that without everything you have done, we wouldn't be where we are today. Our website is performing really well and we receive much praise about how good it looks and functions."
