What's involved in building a website?

What WebWizards do as part of designing & building a website

  • Create a standard template for the look and feel of the website (menus, colour schemes and fonts etc)
  • Create or obtain imagery needed to complement the website
  • Alter and optimise any images provided for web use
  • Layout each page as required with text / images and any other content
  • Optimise the whole site for best search engine ranking (SEO) and download speed
  • Provide simple standard legal disclaimers, privacy statements and copyright information needed for the site
  • Submit the domain to major national and international search engines and relevant internet directories
  • Set up a Google My Business profile
  • Set up Google website monitoring tools and statistics packages so you can monitor how your website performs:
  • We can also track just about anything on your website with our advanced website tracking options

We also do copy writing...
Dump some facts, or text content, on us and we will rewrite it so it makes sense, is laid out well - and is easy to scan and read. We can creating persuasive content for marketing with the goal of generating conversions or sales.

What you will need to do

Provide branding and other content in the form of text / images product photos etc...
We can usually adapt most of the graphics from your existing branding if any.

We will need electronic copies of all your branding materials:

  • Logos
  • Artwork & Videos
  • Brand Guides
  • Company Profiles
  • etc

To generate website content we will also need electronic copies of:

  • Full Product & Service List
  • Product Photos and descriptions
  • Client Testimonials
  • Staff profiles, photos & any qualifications, affiliations
  • etc

If you have an existing domain and/or website:

We will likely need to move you to new web server and may need to move your domain to a new domain registrar and set up new DNS Pointers.

Note: Sometimes your email service is tied to the web hosting provider and we may need to migrate your emails to a new service.

If possible we would need FTP and Control Panel Access to your existing hosting service to get a copy of all your existing content.

To move an existing domain, web hosting and email service:

We will need a transfer code for the domain called:

  • UDAI for .nz domains
  • EPP Code for international domains

These transfer codes can also known as a "registry key" or "domain key" and your current registrar/ web-host will be able to provide these.

DNS Pointers

DNS pointers allow your domain to point to the correct services for email and website hosting etc.

If we take over the registration services for you - we will need a list of any existing DNS records that need to be maintained.

e.g. A Records, CNAME (Alias) records, MX & TXT (SPF, DKIM and SVR etc) records for Mail services, etc

Or we can liaise with you, or your IT people, to set up new DNS Records with your current domain registration or DNS management service.


To help you market your website and measure results we will need:
A list of all your digital assets and access to some of these.

  • Social Media Account Links
    • Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn - etc
  • Access to any Analytics and Tracking tools
    • Webmaster Tools (Bing and Google Search Console)
    • Google Business Profile Listings
    • Google Tag Manager
    • etc
