Why Your Business Needs a Website & Social Media

Customers research before buying - and they're doing it online.

Customers buy at all hours of the day - don't miss out on sales.

Customers value convenience - let them browse, book and buy without pressure.

Customers want information - give them facts and figures at their fingertips.

Customers are on social media - if you don't engage them, your competition will.

The question isn't whether you need a website, but rather, why wouldn't you need a website?

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 first started designing websites for clients 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 on maintaining websites for prior clients only. In December 2018, I decided to take on more web design clients and have been steadily growing since then.

Over the years I have:

  • Designed and maintained websites
  • Installed and moderated online forums
  • Created and administrated 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 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 on maintaining websites for prior clients only.

In December 2018, I decided to take on more web design clients and have been steadily growing 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 carry out all the website design and social media services myself.

If you request a specialised service that I cannot accomodate you with, I can suggest others where applicable or liase with them on your behalf.

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 can refer you to a website hosting company  and assist you with the set-up after you have decided on a website hosting company.

I don't provide a domain name as part of the website packages as some clients already have a domain name. For those that don't have a domain name, I can recommend a domain registrar and assist with set-up.

I recommend that clients purchase their domain name themselves as that way they can be sure that the domain is registered in their name (and not that of a website design or hosting company as sometimes happens).

My schedule usually means that I have a one month wait list for new clients.

The actual time it takes to complete your website will depend on the size and complexity of the website, along with how quickly you are able to provide me with the required content.

Generally speaking you could expect your website build to take anything from 2 weeks to several months.

Yes, all my website designs are fully mobile responsive as standard, so that they look good on all devices. 

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

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

If your current website hosting company does not provide SSL to you as part of your package, I can recommend a company that does.

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. 

Yes, I do. I walk you through how to take care of your basic website maintenance, but also offer affordable website maintenance packages for those that prefer me to look after it for them. 

Yes, I can add additional pages to your website, or add new plugins or products and services after the intial website build, on an one-off basis or under a retainer package

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 all website builds and set-up processes. If you chose to disable this for whatever reason, I may not be able to restore your website to its prior condition.

For those that take have a website care package, I ensure that all updates are undertaken and that regular backups are saved to the cloud and can be used to restore 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.

After your website is completed, I walk you through how to take care of your website maintenance, including videos of how to update plugins, themes and WordPress itself.

For those that prefer to not have to worry about this, I offer affordable website care packages.

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

What I do is build your website with search engine optimization in mind. I make sure to optimize your page, post and image descriptions, and ensure that your permalinks are easy for search engines to parse.

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

Adding new content on a regular basis is also a great way to attract and keep website visitors and something that Google looks on favourably.

I offer a retainer package that is suitable for those that wish to update their websites ona regular basis.

There are over a billion 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 such as utilizing social media, including 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 and/or returning to your website. I offer a retainer package that can assist you with this, or you can add new content to your website on an one-off basis.

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. 

I offer various levels of social media assistance. All website designs include a social media strategy session so that you can make the most of your website.

I also have several social media packages and offer the set-up of individual social media platforms for clients.

 

I include basic search engine optimization techniques 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 impact on SEO.

I can offer set up of Google My Business and Google Search Console, as well as a retainer package that will allow you to publish regular fresh content that assists with SEO.

If you need dedicated SEO services, there are many companies that specialise in this.
