I have been designing and developing templates and websites with WordPress for 5 Years. I have built my own framework for WordPress and am highly intuitive with WordPress’s capabilities. I have experience developing my own plugins and working with databases in order to create completely custom and once of solutions that may need special attention. My main goal for any WordPress website is to make it user friendly and SEO friendly.[/cq_vc_expandgrid_item][cq_vc_expandgrid_item avatartype=”none” subtitlecolor=”#282828″ tooltip=”Click me to find out more!” bgstyle=”lightgray” image=”462″ isresize=””]

Shopify eCommerce

Shopify is a template and theme-based eCommerce solution. Shopify is relatively user friendly and involves no coding skills. To build the site you drop elements into position then edit them. It’s not as customisable as a WordPress, Drupal or Joomla system but what it lacks in customizability it makes up for in usability. It is a very user-friendly option for creating an online store. With a lot of themes to install and then customise, it really is versatile. It is already mobile rendered and is a lot cheaper than the other CMS options. I have built and customised a lot of Shopify websites and can say I know it like the back of my hand! I generally help set these stores up and help with customization and additional elements that may be more technical.[/cq_vc_expandgrid_item][cq_vc_expandgrid_item avatartype=”none” subtitlecolor=”#282828″ tooltip=”Click me to find out more!” bgstyle=”lightgray” image=”472″ isresize=””]

Theme Design and Configuration

Wix is free to set up template-based block builder. This means that it is relatively user friendly and involves no coding skills. To build the site you drop elements into position then edit them. It’s not as customisable as a WordPress, Drupal or Joomla system but what it lacks in customizability it makes up for in usabilityWix sites are free to run and build but any 3rd party plugins or extensions are paid.

INQUIRE ABOUT OUR TAILORED PACKAGES

NEW WEBSITE PROCESS

Step 1: We Chat

Brief and Scoping the Project

In order to make sure that we are both on the same page when creating your online vision we need to chat. The chat is to build a clear and concise brief so that I can understand what it is that you would like to achieve and more importantly what your business is about.

We will work closely together to figure out the best design using market and competitor research. The brief will be interpreted into a scope which will include a quote and what exactly is covered by the scope.

Step 2: Design

Look and feel Design

This is a proposed graphic layout to show the structure and design of your website homepage. The idea of the look and feel is to give you an idea of what the website may look like once finished. This is so that we can develop with purpose.

Temporary filler content will be used if content cannot be supplied at this stage. The temporary content will be changed during the building process.

Step 3: Raw Build

Building the raw Template

Once we have an idea of what the website needs to look like I can start working on the building templates and configuration of the website. I will build it on my testing domain online and send you a link once the raw build is done.

The raw build is to create the entire website in full so that if any changes need to happen can happen to templates or design we can manage them at this stage. If I do not have content to place, temporary filler content will be used. It also gives you an idea of where content needs to be placed.

Step4 : Content

Content Population

Once the raw build is approved we can move onto placing final content and making sure that the website is complete to the highest standards. All images, titles and content will be placed onto their dedicated areas. This includes products / events for more advanced builds.

A content document can be created along with a live editable spreadsheet of progress and needed content. These documents will be able to be edited and seen by both parties so that changes happen smoothly and everyone is working on one document.

Step5 : SEO

SEO and Tracking

The website has been built for Search Engine Optimization but now its time to fine tune the SEO so that we can yield the best results. SEO, Speed and Security plugins are also installed so that the website runs optimally. Analytics and Keyword accounts are made for the website for future use

Step6 : Finally ! Launch time.

Migrating to the live domain

Once the website is ready to go live a final look through will be made. The migration of the website will be done and the live site will be tested and double checked. User logins will be  created so that you can take over. Thats that your site is live and you have access to edit and add content. Changes to the website are valid for 2 weeks after going live free of charge. There are also maintenance packages available for tutorials and maintenance.

ALL STANDARD WEB DESIGN PACKAGES INCLUDE

2 WEEKS POST LIVE SUPPORT

MOBILE RENDERED DESIGN

EASY-TO-USE DASHBOARD

FAQ

Do you have maintenance packages?

Yes, There are packages suited for every need. The maintenance plans and extras are software and content-based.

Click here to see which one suits you. If there isn’t a package that doesn’t suit your specific needs please contact me so that we can discuss a custom maintenance plan.

How do we start?

Give me a call or message and we can start the process. Generally, we will discuss the website in short so that I can accurately quote. Then I will send off a quote or cost estimate. This happens with completely new websites and once off changes. Once the quote is accepted we start Step 1 in the New Website Process.

Will I be able to make changes to the website?

If it is built on a Content Management system (CMS) then most of the time yes you can make changes to your website. All websites that are built by Dvm Development and Digital Marketing are made to be user friendly for staff and admin to make changes. If you need tutorials on how to make changes take a look at the Maintenance and extras packages to find the best route for you.

Do you assist with hosting, domains and emails?

If you decide to build a new website and you do not have any of this, Yes, I assist with creating this for you. If you have an existing plan and need anything adjusted an hourly rate will apply unless you are on maintenance.

How long does it take to build a website?

The process is described above in the new website process. The build always depends on a lot of factors and can take anywhere from a couple of days to 3 months. It depends on some of the following factors:

  • How many pages need to be built
  • What type of site is it ( eCommerce, Catalog etc… )
  • How long it takes for a communication to be processed between mail and meetings
  • How much content there is and if images need to be shopped and resized.
  • The complexity of the build.
  • Delays for content

Can smaller once off tasks be done?

Yes, Hourly rates do apply and there are maintenance packages available for monthly changes. If the job is unique and requires more work please contact me to discuss a quote.

Do you design all your websites?

All design work is done by my self. I look at the latest online trends and then create the look and feels from scratch. I use template builders to create each and every site from a blank canvas.

What do we need to provide you?

A briefing form is generally sent with this information but in short. To start a website we need the following.

  • High-Resolution logo
  • Colour palette
  • Brand bible (If applicable)
  • A presentation (If applicable)

Once the website raw build is complete you need to provide any images and content for the website. Please keep in mind that we are developers and don’t know every industry. We need your words to explain your service and product.

DVM About Image

I am Dale van Moerkerken and my passion is within the multimedia realm. My goal is to build long term relationships with clients and not once off experiences. I have pride in the work that I offer and deal with every job with the same amount of passion and care that is deserved. My offering is to provide professional and consistent services. I don’t claim to know everything about web design or development, but I do know how to problem solve. If theres a challenge I'll take it on and if its broken, I'll fix it, there’s always a way.


I graduated in 2013 and went straight into website design and development for a starting up Online Marketing Company in Johannesburg. I worked remotely from Durban.The company grew from 5 staff to 50 within 5 years. In 2018 I moved to a company called TNNG in Durban so that I could have a more hands on approach with a team and clients. In 2019 I decided to start my own freelance company because I felt that I could utalize my time better and I felt that I have something more to offer to clients that agencies were allowing. I am motivated and know how to keep to a schedule. I work very well with clients and teams despite working at home. Im outgoing and social but also dont need other people to motivate me.
