Want fresh, creative ideas for an effective online presence? We’re full of them!
Just like you want to present the best possible image with your corporate uniforms, company vehicle, business card and your office or store, it’s very important that your website presents well. It shouldn’t look like all the other websites out there – it should look like your business, and make your customers feel as welcome as they would if they walked in your door.
Suncoast Web Solutions have created hundreds of stylish, welcoming professional website designs over the years. We understand how important it is that your customers get the right feeling from your website, so every element is crafted to deliver that important first impression – the wording, the colours, the layout, the photos, the graphic elements and the navigation. Our talented pool of creative website designers are proud of their ability to deliver stunning, exceptional websites that don’t just look pretty – they sell.
As one of the Sunshine Coast’s leading website design firms, years of experience have taught us how to deliver affordable website designs that come with outstanding usability, accessibility and profitability. We have created responsive, mobile-friendly sites for organisations of all sizes from a wide range of different industries – from simple ‘brochure-style’ sites to complex e-commerce websites – with intuitive navigation and visually uncluttered layouts.
So if you want your business to stand out from the digital crowd, talk to the expert website design team at Suncoast Web Solutions today.
Until recently, only the ‘big boys’ could afford an e-commerce website. But thanks to changes in software and technology and improved product delivery logistics, an online store is now a viable option for many small to medium enterprises. In fact, many start-ups and micro-businesses are now selling their products online – to customers around the country and around the world. In Australia, most consumers are now completely comfortable with the idea of shopping online and taking advantage of the benefits it brings them.
What about your business – are you missing out on this potentially huge revenue stream?
Suncoast Web Solutions has many customers who have embraced the online shopping revolution by setting up their own online stores and payment gateways.

We can even help you set up your online payment gateway, organise shipping options, and secure your new online store with an SSL Certificate to ensure that customer transactions are completed securely.
Content Management Systems
It’s one of those industry buzzwords that you hear frequently, but may not understand: “CMS” or “Content Management System”. So what is a Content Management System?
A content management system or CMS is a computer application that allows you to publish, edit and modify the content of a website from a simple central interface. It means that you, the business owner, are able to make changes to your website such as adding, editing or removing text; adding or replacing photos, uploading new videos or creating new pages without having to go back to your website design company.
There are lots of proprietary content management systems on the market. Many of these have inherent limitations or restrictions, such as the inability to move to other providers or lack of security updates.
Every website that Suncoast Web Solutions builds uses an open source content management system such as Joomla! or WordPress. There are lots of reasons for this, but the main advantages are that they are free to use, regular security updates are released for them, a range of add-ons or plug-ins are available that can give your site more functionality and Joomla or WordPress content management systems do not lock you in to dealing with one website company.
At Suncoast Web Solutions, we have many years of experience creating and customizing Joomla templates, WordPress templates and templates for other content management systems. Take a look at the projects we have carried out in the past and you will see that we have created lots of different looks and feels for a wide range of businesses using these proven templates.
Content management systems can provide impressive savings in cost and time – talk to the Suncoast Web Solutions team today about CMS technology.
