There are a few questions which keep popping up. Hopefully the answers below will give you a better insight in to how we work.
We’re often asked this question by smaller companies and startups. Generally we don’t charge by the hour. We work on project fees as the nature of our projects means that they are rarely completed in ‘hours’. The best way to judge the value you’ll receive from working with us is to contact us. If you have a project you’d like to discuss we’d be happy to meet and provide a cost estimate.
Well, it depends. Ok, so that’s not the answer you wanted but keep in mind that all web and app development projects are different. They all have different features and requirements. To give you a better idea here are a few project examples and the usual time frames:
There’s nothing fancy here, but what you’ll find is we stick to our process closely to deliver projects on time and on budget. That means a collaborative and iterative process that delivers great results. Our process includes:
All the work we do is completed in Sydney and Canberra. We don’t offshore any of our work.
We can introduce you to angel investors that we have relationships with should your concept fit with their investment strategies. We can also assist preparing pitch presentations and pitch training. We are currently in discussion with other Angel and Venture Capital investors to see how we can further assist our startups in this regard.
The majority of our work is developing applications for startups (both web and mobile apps) as well as custom content management systems for companies. We always listen to your needs first and will help guide you through the best solution. For example, if you need a brochure website that you won’t be updating regularly then you probably don’t need a content management system. In that case we would create a static website for you using a tool called Jekyll. Over the years we’ve also developed viral loop solutions, online competitions, Facebook apps and more.
Our preference is to only take equity in a startup if we have a deep understanding of the market (domain experience) and the problem that is being solved. However, we'll break this rule for something exceptional that gets us excited. Our domain experience includes digital marketing, advertising, web development, design, big data, data science and data visualisation.
