How long does it take to build a website?

Professional web design in Brisbane is a specialised job, requiring many years to accumulate the necessary experience and skills to create bespoke web designs for a range of different industries. As a company specialising in web design in Brisbane, GO Creative has built a formidable reputation for building quality, high converting websites, but even with all of our experience, this cannot be achieved overnight.

How long does a website usually take to develop?

All things being equal, it usually takes 1 to 2 weeks (depending on our workload) from the initial consultation stage to final completion of your website. This time frame however, is based on a simple website with a handful of pages and not too much in the way of specialised functionality.

The more specialised the design and functionality of your website, the longer it takes for the site to be completed. Obviously this varies between companies who specialise in web design in Brisbane, but in most cases this is a sensible time frame to keep in mind.

The one tripwire in the design process is actually the client’s content, because the longer it takes to receive this from a client, the longer the timeframe to completion. You might be surprised to learn that this is the biggest hold up to going live with your website, and sometimes we wait a few weeks for the client’s content… and in extreme cases we have waited years!

Speeding up the process

You want your website up and running as soon as possible, but it pays to have all your ducks in a row before we start the design process. This means you need the following information available either at the first consultation, or as soon as the project starts:

  • Branding, colours and logo (or ask us for graphic design help).
  • A summary of the purpose of your website.
  • An overview of your ideal customer.
  • Some idea of the functionality required (payment gateway, finance calculators, tables etc).
  • Photos, images, videos, and text already available or in progress.

If you want to finish the website as quickly as possible, you’ll need to make fairly snappy decisions as we work through the design process, so we can make any changes and have your site live ASAP.
