How does mytradiesite work?
Mytradiesite gives you the option to choose from three different plans (The Apprentice, The Tradie and The Boss) to suit your business needs and budget. Each plan has a different range of website template designs for you to choose from. You simply pick the plan and choose a website design within the plan you like. All we need from you then is your logo and website content. We will put the site together for you and once you have approved it, it will go live.
How much flexibility do I get with my design?
While all of the mytradiesite templates have similar underlying programming features, they all look quite different. Once you have picked your design you can choose a colour scheme that suits your business. You will get to approve every stage and the result is a unique design that reflects your individuality.
Can I add or edit content on my site?
Yes you can. Our websites are designed to make editing your site painless. Simply login and add new images, create new pages, edit existing content, or change your menu. You have complete control over the appearance and content of your site. Of course, if you prefer, we’ll handle all editing for you.
What if I already have a website for my business?
If you already have a website, moving to mytradiesite is easy. You keep your current domain address and we simply transfer it so it’s hosted on the mystradiesite servers. We can also use any of the content you wish to retain from your current site, which will fast track your site development.
Can I host my own site?
Unfortunately no. All mytradiesite websites must be hosted on our servers
Can I post videos on my site?
Yes you can post videos on your site but they must be hosted by a third party – for example youtube or vimeo.
How many email accounts do I get?
In The Apprentice package you can have 1 email account. In The Tradie packages you can have up to 2, and in The Boss you can have up to 4 email accounts.
What is SEO and do I need it?
SEO stands for “Search Engine Optimisation “. It is the process of getting traffic from “free”, “organic” or “editorial” search results on search engines. SEO is a process used to help people find your business. When you search something on the web a list of results fitting that description will show. This is due to SEO. You invest in SEO to get your company to the top of that list. It is a great tool to use if you know you have competitors in the area or to help new clients find your business.
How long until my website is online?
This depends on how quickly we are able to get your content information and approval on our designs. As a general rule we suggest you allow between 7-14 days.
What happens at the end of my 12 months?
Following your initial 12 month contract your account will automatically switch to a month by month arrangement. Should you wish to discontinue we require 30 days notice in writing. Please be aware that all content which we provide for use on our sites is licensed and cannot be copied.
