For Marketing and Sales Professionals
You get to enjoy the parts you love the most…
The WebDepartment is for anyone who sells, or wants to sell, WordPress websites.
Do any of the below sound familiar?
I just want to sell!
If so, we can help.
Working in a marketing environment inevitably means that web sites will be part of a larger conversation. Not all clients will need a web site, but many will. We understand that marketing is a very broad subject, and it’s hard to be an expert in everything! You may enjoy the web, but many marking and sales professionals we talk to have some knowledge, but haven’t got the time or inclination to dive into the technical side of web development.
Our service is comprehensive, unique and can be tailored to suit your individual requirements. That means you get to do as much or as little of the web site work as you would like.
Better still, there are no direct costs to you. You set your own prices and factor in whichever WebDepartment package you would like to use. There are no tie-ins, no sales targets, no pressure. You carry on with your business in your own style, however you like – we simply provide background support and services.
The customers are yours; we just take the hassle out of technical!
The small type…
* Domains and hosting not included. .co.nz domains $29.95 + GST /year. Hosting $295 + GST /year, minimum 1 year.
While we offer domains at competitive prices via https://my.slightlydifferent.co.nz/ you are free to purchase your clients domain wherever you please and do not have to transfer them to us. However, if we are not managing the domains for you then you just need to bare in mind that is your responsibility.
Any domains registered via us are registered to the end customer, they retain ownership.
This is a fully managed service and as such all hosting is carried out on our own servers (see https://www.slightlydifferent.net.nz/services/nz-web-hosting).
Web sites offered by the Web Department are installed on one of our fully managed cloud based WebEasy multi site Wordpress servers. This gives us full control to provide you the optimal service.
If, at any time after the first years hosting, you or your client would like to move the site to another web host you're totally free to do so, provided notice is given at least 30 days before the annual renewal of the hosting. We can provide a an exported package of your individual site that you can install on any web host that supports Wordpress. However, we cannot support sites that are not hosted with us.
Themes, plugins and updates:
All our WebEasy multi site Wordpress servers are fully managed including regular Wordpress, theme and plugin updates. For this reason we use a very carefully selected and vetted set of themes and plugins that we know to be reliable and perform well. While we do our best to ensure all popular functionality is covered by our selection of plugins we recognise it is a restricted list. There is therefore a process of suggestion and vetting for proposed new plugins should something be required that is not currently offered.
Ongoing SEO is not included. All the tools are provided for you to easily and effectively provide ongoing SEO you your clients. We can also provide an ongoing SEO service; see https://www.slightlydifferent.co.nz/services/search-engine-optimisation/.
Sales and technical support is supplied within the limitations of the solution offered. These restrictions are not here to strictly enforce but as general guidelines and to allow us to prevent abuse of our support service. We will always do our best to help!
