My web design
In this process I will also inform you of my hourly rate I charge for implementing future changes to content on the website, or a monthly retainer fee can be discussed if many changes are likely to be made.
I design, create, and digitally optimise bespoke websites that are tailored towards increasing digital traffic and converting your audience.
As the owner of a reputable global recruitment firm based out of South Africa, I required a modern, professional-looking, seamless and functional website the addressed the needs of both client and candidate. The site had to integrate with our social media platforms, be optimised towards the use of mobile devices and provide a highly interactive job board. On the back-end, the site needed to be geared towards improving our SEO ranking for executive search and talent acquisition. Damion and I began working together in February 2019. My brief was simple and his response was clever, fast and en pointe. He understood my needs and managed to translate my vision Into a site that I'm extremely proud of and that works for my business. I confidently recommend Damion Caldicott as a creative, relevant, client-centric web developer.
It was such a pleasure working with Damion on my website. I am not tech savvy at all and he made me feel like I know what’s going on. Throughout our initial conversations we formulated the structure of the website and the design. He asked all the right questions, helping me to think about my style and flow of the website. He was great in guiding me through the entire process step by step. It was also super helpful that he had put together a draft website for me to visualise all the different pages and layout. From there it was easy to edit it to suit my needs and he was always ready for any changes with a smile.
He is very thorough in his manner and thinks of the small things I would have never considered. He even put together a great tutorial for me to load my own products to the site, which is such a great help for growing my online store. He is always willing to answer my questions and to help out where I felt overwhelmed. I hope I have another idea so he can help with another website.
I would not hesitate to recommend Damion-Lee Caldicott to anyone or any business requiring a website. When I needed a website for my new business, Damion’s response and service was prompt and efficient, his feed back was accurate and helpful, and my website was done swiftly. I am extremely happy with the content, user friendliness and appearance of the site, and have had several favourable remarks from clients and friends. I have done business with new clients who found me via my website, and that’s what I wanted! It was also good value for money!

My job is optimising your website so that it ranks well in Google search results, simple as that. What is the point of having an engaging, bespoke website if users aren't able to find it in search engines?
Onsite SEO audit
An extensive SEO onsite audit will be conducted using specialised tools.
Google Analytics and Search Console setup
Google Analytics and Google Search Console setup which are reporting tools that show user behaviour and traffic reports for your website.
Extensive SEO keyword research will be done to ensure your content will target the correct keywords and adhere to search intent.
Site speed evaluation
Page speed is important for SEO but also for user experience. I will evaluate your site’s speed performance and tell you where you need to improve.
Optimise meta title and description data for each page, making sure it meets SEO requirements.
Time frames and deadlines will be communicated clearly and thoroughly throughout the length of the project.
My focus lies mainly with Web Design, but associated with that are a few more skills I utilise to feed myself, my fiance, and my two beautiful dogs, Lily and Rat.
I don't have a specific amount that I charge, every client has different needs, which means each website has a different price tag. I base my pricing on project variables; time it will take to complete the project, having all the content for the website, features and functionality of the website etc... An average price range for what I have charged in the past is between $700 - $2000.
Each website differs depending on how big the project is, as well as how urgent the client needs the website to go live. Generally a solid timeline would be around 6 - 8 weeks, keeping in mind that all the content for the website has been provided by you. Simpler websites are quicker opposed to company websites. The degree of the website's functionality also play a role in determining the time it will take to completion.
The initial stages of my work process is meticulous - the planning and research stage takes a certain amount of time, but what sets me apart is that I don't use templates or frameworks to create your website. I design and develop it from scratch, tailoring the website to exactly what you want it to be. I make sure your website is the epitome of what you need and want it to be.
Funny enough I've also been asked this question. Depending on your needs, my prices can be way cheaper than that of other freelancers or agencies. I work from home, so you don't have to worry about paying for my office space. I work alone so the only stakeholders are you and I, no project managers or product owners to worry about.
This depends heavily on what you want the website to be. Most of this will be discussed during our discovery call.
Images of yourself and/or your team ,workplace images, content for your website such as text, PDFs, images etc, staff or personal profiles, videos of what you would like on the website, login details to your existing website.
If you have an existing website and some of the above already exist, I can transfer those to the new website.
Yes. I understand that web design and digital marketing strategies are not cheap. I accept either a once-off full payment before the project starts, or two seperate payments; 50% of the total before I start the project and 50% after you are happy with the results.
This includes but is not limited to an in-depth health check of the website, content analysis, page speed evaluation, keyword analysis and suggestions, on-page SEO audit, Schema check and opportunity suggestions, image and video scans, link audit and suggestions, and technical SEO evaluations.
This is entirely dependent on the the size of the project. I will gladly jump on a call to discuss pricing with you, I first would need to work out the scale of the project.
