What counts as a "simple website"

We believe in helping the little guy and have developed a platform that allows us to partner with like-minded groups to create inexpensive websites for small businesses. Of course, we have a limited number of websites we can build at this discounted rate and there are some exceptions to the scope of what we are able to create in the timeframe allocated for each build. 

In saying that, our platform is perfectly suited to the majority of small businesses and your new website comes with everything you need to start or upgrade your business, hobby, interest, whatever it may be.

Once designed, all we charge is $29AUD/month to cover the hosting. (A standard ongoing cost for all websites.)

Here's a quick rundown of what's included:

  • A full day of design and development to create your unique website featuring Home, About and Contact pages.

  • Mobile friendly with beautiful design and functionality across all devices (beautiful on any device no matter how big or small)

  • Smart coding, full SEO capability and super fast loading

  • All the best in back-end technologies (updates and security are taken care of so you can focus on your business)

  • Daily backups (while you sleep, we are taking backups)

  • Fully customisable (a simple drag'n'drop editor allowing you to manage and update your site, add blogs, events etc)

  • All the tools you need to make changes yourself (90 free tutorials built directly into your dashboard)

Of course, at this price there are some things that we CAN'T do:

  • Content writing (it's up to you to pass this content over to us)

  • Additional page designs (you can build off our templates or engage a designer for additional work)

  • E-commerce sites (we can add these for small price)

  • Memberships and paywalls (you guessed it, we can add these for a small price)

  • We can only install plug-ins that are on our approved list

If you need something that's not covered, we can arrange it for you. Just get in touch with the team and we can quote for and add any extras you require.

Got questions?

It's natural to have questions. Here's a few of the most common questions that people have. If you have any other questions please get in touch through our contact form. 

What is Stacked Site?

Stacked Site is a hosting platform that supports one type of website - a Stacked Site. A Stacked Site is a combination of well supported and reliable plugins that work seamlessly together within a WordPress platform.

What to expect if we build your website?

This is not a cookie cutter solution… we are building your site from scratch to benefit your business. We create websites that allow businesses to make any changes, add blog articles, add upcoming events etc themselves. With a simple drag and drop system you are fully in control of your website.

What factors do we consider when building the site?

We consider things like what your site needs to achieve, your target market, the selling points that make you unique, what you are currently doing that is working, what your competition does effectively, using effective elements from your competition, design elements from sites you find inspirational.

Wha's included in the simple build?

We will spend one day on your site and build the 3 most common pages with a unique design using your branding and colours. We'll link your social media channels and also also insert your content if you provide it.

Will I get a complete site?

Most people do… but remember we are working on it for one day and we do what we can in that day. If you are only asking for 5 pages and you provide all the content then yes, your site will be complete. For sites that are not complete they are handed over with placeholder content ready for you to swap. This is usually latin and looks like this: “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, “

Can I migrate my current site to Stacked Site?

In most cases, no you can’t migrate a site. However, depending on the complexity of your current site, we can often rebuild your entire site to look identical on the Stacked Site platform for no charge if it falls under the 'simple site' category.

What is the process?

Simple. You can sign up for the hosting at $29/month and you will receive a link to a questionnaire where we get your requirements. You will then join a queue to have your site built! Easy as that.

Do I understand correctly, you’ll build my site?

When you move over to our stacked site hosting we'll build a simple site for free and you just pay the $29/month hosting. Anyone who has researched website pricing knows that a website build can get expensive… we want to support you to get up and running quickly, which is why we will build it for free.

How do you decide what it looks like?

We will decide based on a number of factors such as your logo, your colours you have or like, your competition, websites you like the look of, and fonts,styles guides, or imagery you provide… and of course the designers taste.

What if you don’t like the look of the site?

It's important for you to give us as much information as you can for us to go on so we get it right the first time. If you want changes, we can have another go at our hourly or day rate. Otherwise, Stacked Site is built in WordPress - which also means there are more developers who can work on your platform than any other platform - help is not difficult to find.

Can I an example of an amazing Stacked Site?

Sure… it can be anything you want it to be. In fact, this site is a stacked site! Here is one we are particularly proud of:
https://stackddesign.com

Here’s some examples of other stacked sites too.
https://wynnumbaysidevet.com.au
https://santaforreal.com.au
https://bac.smithink.com/
https://boltecelectrical.com/

How long until I get my site?

The queue varies in length but we try to get all sites complete as quick as possible. You should reach the front of the queue within 30 days and then we spend one day building your site.

What will I receive when the site is built?

You will get a fully functioning website including forms and clickable links. Built with an eye for design specifically for your business, aimed straight at your target market. We will map it to a live domain. It will contain a simple drag and drop editor so you can change anything yourself. You can add unlimited pages and users.

Do you use templates?

No. This is not a cookie cutter solution… we are building your site from scratch to benefit your business. We may pull elements from different designs we have built but we then re-style them to work with your site and branding.

What will you do to my site every month?

We'll keep everything updated, scan for malware, defend from bots and hackers, maintain a high performance score, and maintain backups so you can roll back if you get in trouble.

What can I do on a stacked site?

There is very little you cannot do on a stacked site. You can add videos, galleries, blogs, audio, create forms, have unlimited pages and users, sell items, membership areas… if in doubt get in touch with us to ask.

What can I not do on a stacked site?

You CAN enable any plugins we have approved but you CANNOT install new plugins. We have a plugin for almost every situation. You also cannot export pages from the platform.

What if I want to migrate at a later date?

There are two options for migrating off the Stacked Site platform.
The first is free, and we can export all pages as an xml file ready for you to import into your own install of WordPress. For this to be successful you will need to own licenses of certain plugins so it continues to display the same.
The second option is we can migrate it to a new hosting environment for you. It will need to be scheduled in and will cost $800 to migrate all WordPress content and the plugins.

Why should I put my site on Stacked Site rather than other platforms?

Stacked site is built in WordPress - as is over 25% of the internet! More developers can work in WordPress than any other CMS. This means that you will have an endless supply of potential developers to help you. In addition, unlike other platforms if you want to migrate to another server and start making radical customisations - you can!

What if I need support?

We offer a few different ways you can be supported. Firstly we include over 90 video tutorials directly in your dashboard so you can learn how to update. We also offer paid 1-1 training where we can teach you how to edit your site AND even work on it together. Lastly we have created a portal where a growing community of stacked site experts hang out and can dive in and help you at a moments notice.
