Website Design

Scullywag Services has a variety of website design packages to suit your business requirements as well as your budget. However, having your website built is just the beginning. You need to not only make sure that your website remains up to date to defend against attack, but you need to be out there promoting it as well, or nobody will know it exists. 

Website Care

Your website is very much like a living, breathing entity and as such does best when it is kept healthy (making sure that it has the latest version of WordPress themes and plugins). Keeping your website up to date is also a good defence against hackers, as many of them look to gain access to your website via older versions of WordPress, themes or plugins. 

As such, Scullywag Services provides affordable website care packages starting from as little as $15 AUD / $10 USD a month to ensure peace of mind for our clients. All our website care packages also include website backups before any updates are undertaken and the monitoring of comments on your website. 

Social Media

Scullywag Services also provides a variety of social media services, from setting up one social media account to Social Media Scheduling and all the way up to Social Media Management

We can also assist you other additional services such as Email Newsletter set-up and managementGoogle My Business and Search Console set-up and much more. If you need something you don’t see addressed in our store, please feel free to contact me to discuss your requirements 

About Scullywag Services

Lynda Filer, owner of Scullywag Services

Hi, I’m Lynda and I live in Brisbane, Australia but I design and manage social media for clients worldwide.

I’ve been fascinated with internet technology for over 20 years and I have been building websites just as long.

Over the years I have:

  • Designed and maintained websites
  • Installed and moderated online forums
  • Created and administered Facebook Pages
  • Created and administrated Facebook Groups
  • Sold my own products and services online
  • Earned online affiliate commissions
  • Dabbled in most forms of social media

As an early adopter, keeping up with new trends in web design, social media and marketing is a passion of mine; and I would love to help you with your small business requirements.

I am innately curious, and if I cannot answer your questions, I will make it my mission to find out as much as I can about it for you.

I enjoy working with my clients and watching their business grow, and I take pride in knowing that I have had a small hand in that.

Frequently Asked Questions

You have questions, and that is quite natural. If you don’t find the answer to your question below, please feel free to contact me. 

I designed my first websites back in 1999. Most of these were for small businesses (radio stations, a hardware store, and a bookshop among others).

I also built and ran a few websites of my own up until the mid-2000s. In 2006, I decided against taking on any new clients. Instead, I focused only on maintaining websites for prior clients only.

In December 2018, I decided to take on more web design clients and have been steadily growing again since then.

Yes, you can view the websites of my current clients and case studies of what was involved in their website design here

No, I cannot promise you that. I do not know your competition and how well entrenched they are.

What I do is build your website with search engine optimization in mind, including such things as page and post descriptions, image descriptions, and permalinks are all optimized for search engines.

What also goes a long way to optimizing your website is having quality content on your website, with keyword and key phrases  that website visitors find valuable.

You may choose to do this yourself, or outsource it to a dedicated Search Engine Optimization service provider.

There are over a billion (yes, you read that right) websites on the internet, all vying for attention. Having a website is not enough, you need to promote your website, and consistently, to bring in website traffic.

You can do this in many ways, including using social media, displaying your website details in your promotional materials and advertising.

Updating your website with new and relevant content also increases your chances of website visitors discovering or returning to your website.

Yes, all our website designs are fully mobile responsive as standard. 

Yes, we recommend that clients use a website hosting company that supplies SSL (secure socket layers) even when they are not selling to customers online.

Yes, e-commerce is included even in the lowest website design package (for 3 products/services in the Silver Package).

Basic search engine optimization techniques are used when building your website as standard.  Once your website is built, what content you add to the website and on what sort of schedule can have a large influence on SEO. There are many companies that specialise in these techniques that can assist you with this. 

This depends on the size and complexity of the website, along with how quickly you are able to provide me with the content needed for the website. Generally speaking you could expect anything from 2 weeks to several months. 

Yes, I can. 

Adding new and relevant content, along with using social media to promote your website are all likely to not only increase brand awareness, but bring new and return visitors to your website. 

One of the ways that hackers make their way into the backend of a website is through old versions of WordPress, themes or plugins. These all need updating on a regular basis to maintain a good defence against hackers. 

While these may not be all that you can do, they are a good start. 

Yes, if you choose to, you can add content to your website after I have finished building it for you. 

I set aside a few hours to run through and show you how to add new posts, pages or items to your website shop. I record these sessions, and they will be available to you to view whenever you wish. 

Automated backups are scheduled as part of my website build and set-up process. If you chose to disable this for whatever reason, you may find youself in a bit of trouble.

Hopefully, in a case like this, your website host will have taken a recent backup of your website as well. The website hosts that I recommend do this and are extremely quick and efficient at solving client dilemmas. 

No I don't. All website design, website care and social media services are carried out by myself. 

Yes, I do. I walk you through how to take care of your basic website maintenance, but also offer affordable packages that do this for you as well. 

Yes, I can work on your website after the intial website build, on an ad-hoc or one-off basis or under a retainer package. 

I do not include the cost of your website hosting in any of the website design packages. This keeps your costs down as low as possible and gives you the flexibility to go with your preferred website hosting company. 

I am happy to refer you to a website host and assist you with the set-up after you have decided on a website hosting company. 

No, I don't. Some clients already have a domain name, and for those that don't, I recommend that they purchase the domain name so that they are sure that the domain is registered in their own name (and not that of a website design or hosting company).

Integration of social media, such as sharing buttons, follow buttons or widgets to display your latest feeds from social media platforms are available on all the website design packages.
