Peterson and Co have been designing brands and building online businesses since 2008, in that time we have gained a vast amount of experience and knowledge. Below are many of the frequently asked questions we were asked along the way.

How much does a website cost?
The cost of a website can vary depending on various factors, just like the cost of a house may vary. Though our website projects generally start in the $4,000 range for basic business sites and range upward depending on your unique needs.
How long does it take to design and build a website?
The time it takes to produce a website depends on the size and complexity of your site and the quality of content that you have ready to go. A basic website typically takes around 4 weeks from beginning to end.

What is a Content Management System?
A Content Management System is a tool that allows you to maintain the pages of your website yourself, without the need for any technical skills.

What is Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)?
Search Engine Optimisation is all about getting your website higher up in the search results on search engines such as Google. The higher up the results you are the more traffic (and customers) you’re likely to get. There are many aspects that go into achieving good SEO, and one of the most important is the copy (words) on your website. Focus on well written, keyword rich and appropriate content is the key.
Do you write the content for my site?
We don’t directly write your content, however if you need help with this we work with copywriters who specialises in writing for the web.
What is a domain name?
A domain name is your address on the internet. Typically this would be something like yourcompany.com.au

Can you provide printing?
Absolutely! We have built great relationships with quality printers and happy to help with all your printing needs.
Isn’t a logo and a brand the same thing?
A logo is an easily recognisable design element, often including a name, symbol, specified colours or trademark. It is a quick, visual representation of a brand’s message and position. A brand is the culmination of every interaction with, experience of, thought about, and marketing practice by a business. A logo all by itself is merely a graphic element with a name. A brand is everything — tangible and intangible — that represents a business and gives its logo meaning.
My brother-in-laws sisters mum offered to design my brand and website for $50.00 why should i work with you?
Unless they are qualified and experienced in the industry you usually get what you pay for. Professional branding and web design involves many factors depending on your type of business. Do your research.
