We, at Black Void, like to think that’s quite a good deal for $900. If you think so too, then shoot us a message to let us know about your business and we’ll get back to you ASAP. If you need a little more detail, then let’s break it down.
Logo design and branding
Without searching online, can you picture the McDonald’s logo in your mind? How about the Apple logo? The answer is almost certainly “yes”.
A little trickier, but take a look at these colours:
Do they look familiar? If you guessed that they were the colours of the Google logo, you’d be correct.
A company’s logo and branding should be clean, simple, and most importantly, instantly recognisable. We’ll work with you to create a unique logo and produce a style guide for use in your marketing materials.
Whatever product or service your business provides, it’s going to need a website. Yes, nowadays many people will find you through social media and other means, but without a site you’ll look unprofessional and potential customers will miss you.
We’ll provide you with a simple, clean, fast site, with everything you need to attract new business – contact form, map, gallery, social media integration, and more. We’ll build it on a CMS platform so that keeping the content up to date will be easy.
If you need an e-commerce site or something a bit more complicated, we’ll be happy to help there too – just let us know what you’re looking for.
Website analytics and SEO
Of course with a website comes Search Engine Optimisation or SEO. Although it’s become more of a buzzword that developers use to try to attract business, it’s still important.
We’ll make sure your site is optimised with the latest techniques such as schema markup, and because getting to the top of Google isn’t everything (or in some cases, possible), we’ll look at other ways to get your site noticed too.
We’ll also set you up with an Analytics account so you can see how your website is performing and adjust your marketing accordingly. After all, ‘statistics are the grammar of science’.
Assistance with domains, email and hosting
What use is your website without a domain name? In fact, your domain should be one of the things you take into consideration when deciding on a company name. We’ll help you register this and make the necessary DNS changes. We’ll also find a suitable host (depending on your requirements and location), deploy your site, and configure your email.
You might have noticed that we added ‘assistance with’ at the start of this section. We’re not trying to be sneaky there – domain registration and hosting are ongoing yearly/monthly costs, so we don’t include these in the package price. However, our help setting you up will take away the strain of getting started.
Social media page
Love it or hate it, Facebook is still widely popular around the world. Most businesses should have a Facebook page, and in many countries it’s actually used as a primary way of buying and selling products and services. We’ll create and configure your page for you, along with some suitable artwork to use as your cover photo.
While a Facebook page is what we consider the ‘minimum’ for your social media presence, depending on your business and location we may recommend you sign up to other platforms too, such as Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Telegram, and more. The logo design provided by Black Void will look great on any of these too!
Business card design
It’s strange that even now there’s still not really a killer app to really replace the humble business card. Offering a business card when meeting a potential contact or client makes a great first impression. In fact, in some cultures is almost expected that you’ll exchange cards when you meet someone, and entire etiquettes have evolved around this. We’ll design a sleek and impactful business card for you, based on your company’s branding.
Of course before any of the above happens we’ll discuss your requirements with you for free. Generally, this will be done on a call unless you happen to be local to us, in which case we can meet in person.
Each of the above services is provided separately as well so if you’re interested in the package or want a quote on something more specific, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’ll get back to you ASAP to discuss things further.
If you need ongoing support with marketing, website maintenance, project management, or another digital project, we have a retainer package for that too. At Black Void, we are here for all your startup needs. We look forward to hearing from you.
