About SWDS


The reason you are probably on this website is because you are probably wanting a website for yourself OR your business/organisation right? Perhaps you are just wondering how much it costs for a website? OR perhaps you are here to just compare costs with other web designers? Whatever the reason, I would love to help you where I can, even if it is just to offer you free advice...I don't mind that either! I am also happy to provide you with an absolutely no obligation free quote, all you need to do is ask.

Sids WebDesign Studio operates from the Eastern Bay of Plenty. I don't call myself a web designer because I use 'drag and drop' websites to create websites, I am an actual web designer and I write code and html from scratch! That's right, I actually know what I am doing!

Low overhead costs allow me to offer affordable websites, without compromising quality. Compare my prices to other web designers and you will see the difference for yourself.

I pride myslef on providing excellent services and creating and maintaining a rapport with anyone and everyone that I come in contact with.

Basic Website Packages

All website packages include the creation of the webpages and related files, as well as organising webhosting and uploading all website files to the webhosts web server. So basically this means that I will create the website and put it up on the internet for you. This entire service is included in the website packages that I offer, so there are no hidden costs.

I will talk you through the entire process, so you will understand everything that is involved in the process. If there are any unforseen expenses along the way, I will notify you before progressing. But this very rarely ever happens.

If you require a more customised package, that isn't listed below, then I am more than happy to talk it through with you and together we can create a suitable website package. All you need to do is ask!
