Yes, just ONE DAY!
Does your website need a new responsive theme installed? Been playing around with your site but have a list of items that you just can’t seem to work out how to do, or get around to doing?
Our company is highly experienced in website design and development and can take all the pain out of administrating your website by dedicating just one focused day to your website and getting all the items you need attending to done!
Our company disrupted the website industry in 2013 when we started offering kick arse website design and developments which are mobile responsive inside just one day at an extremely affordable price.
People are constantly astounded at how quickly their website can come back to life right before their eyes either in person working from our Sunshine Coast or Newcastle office or online – as we complete these projects for clients around the world.
Different to our Website in a Day which is a full overhaul of a site, or a new WordPress website, a Website Refresh in a Day will see you work alongside only one web developer as opposed to two, and to define the list of changes you require on a site prior to the refresh day. If priorities on the day change, that’s fine, simply be aware that we will allocate one entire day to you, and in order to stick to our very affordable fee to make tweaks or give the website a light refresh, we need to fit the changes into an eight hour period (9am – 5pm). Working on Skype, alongside an experienced web designer/developer, you will be amazed at what can be achieved in such a short space of time when you’re working with someone who knows what they’re doing!
It is worth noting that we can’t offer this service for all website platforms. Our preferred platforms to work with are WordPress. WordPress started off life as a blogging platform but has now developed into one of the world’s most popular (and free) CMSs. WordPress has a variety of available modules (known as plug-ins) that you can integrate with your website, including: calendars, photo galleries, interactive maps, SEO assistance and many more.
The entire website design and development process is streamlined into four key stages:
2/ BUILD DAY
3/ GOING LIVE
4/ HANDOVER & TRAINING
Using this simple 4 step method, Creative Collective has developed and refreshed hundreds of websites and know what is realistic to fit into an eight hour period (830am – 430pm). Working either along side our teams at our Sunshine Coast, Brisbane or Newcastle offices, OR on Skype (we’ve worked with clients all around the world many times over in this matter), alongside a lead web developer, you will be amazed at what can be achieved in just one day.
- Do you want to get some updates made to your website in a hurry in time for a product launch or event or simply because it’s been annoying you for a while now?
- Do you have a limited budget and don’t want any surprise fees or hidden costs?
- Is your current website looking rundown and in need of a makeover?
- Do you have a set budget and can’t withstand budget blow outs?
- Do you need to ensure your site is mobile responsive?
- Is your website already on WordPress?
- Do you have a set idea of what you want and just need a team that you can work with to bring your vision to life?
- Do you want to save on the back and forth on digital projects to get the job done with less fuss?
- Do you want to work with experienced professionals who know what they are doing?
Then yes, the website refresh in a day is for you!
We have been known to build sites in this package as soon as the very next day. But subject to our production schedule, generally your ‘build’ day will be booked in within weeks from sign-off.
One of the biggest cost blow-outs in website development is the ongoing to and fro. By working along side you on the build day, we can keep the cost down due to cutting out the to and fro.
Don’t think for a minute that fast means compromising on design. Our portfolio will prove that the sites we build in just 1 day, are up there with some of our most beautiful work!

INITIAL BRIEFING SESSION (1 HOUR)
Once we are engaged, and generally within the week if you are ready to go, we will schedule a one hour appointment which can be held in person or online via Skype or Google Hangout, where we will take the time to get to know you, your business objectives, target market, competitive landscape and desired outcomes for the website refresh. Essentially we’ll takea brief of all the items you hope to get done with us, and we may even make some suggestions ourselves. We’ll also get to know your priorities and will let you know if what you want to achieve can’t be achieved inside one day, and then assist you to agree on the list of works, focusing on the highest priorities. This session will allow us to hit the ground running and will provide you with a clean checklist of everything you will need to have organised so that everything can run as efficiently and effectively on the day of the website refresh.
We will then type our discussion up and provide you with a clear debrief post this session for you to approve, which will be the basis from which we will work on the day of the website refresh.
DAY OF THE WEBSITE REFRESH
Subject to our team’s availability and yours, we will schedule a full day to complete the website build. First up on the day of the build, we will revisit the brief and introduce you to the web developer for the day. We will begin the website refresh straight after the briefing and work until mid morning or midday. At this point we will schedule a chat and show you how the website is shaping up. At this point you should be starting to see how your website is shaping up to be like you requested. At an opportune time we will take a short half hour lunch break and continue working until the website refresh is completed, with regular checks with you in the afternoon to ensure we are on the right track and you are happy with your website is coming together. By 4pm – 5pm, the website refresh is generally complete.
In short we are at your disposal for the entire duration of the day, so if a desired outcome is achieved prior to the 430pm deadline, we are happy to do whatever we can towards your business inside this time frame.
TRAINING & HANDOVER
Once your website is refreshed we will arrange a one hour training and hand over session so you can how to make the most of your website refresh. This is not always necessary but spending an hour learning how to make any small tweaks you may wish to make can save a lot of time for you and us. There will be a lot you can do on your own website subject to your existing knowledge and how quickly you learn and adapt to the WordPress system from what we teach you in this session. We do recognise that sometimes you can have a change of mind and some further tweaks may be required post the website refresh date that you identify during or soon after this training or handover, or simply items which are not basic edits which you do require assistance to complete. We’re happy to accommodate most requests, however please note that any hours post the development day will be at an additional charge of $120 + GST or you can always purchase one of our support packages.
In most cases with our website refreshes we work on the live domain so the edits we make are effectively live straight away. As it is best practice we will however make sure you have Google Analytics on your website + schedule reports, add Google Webmaster Tools to the site, and submit your site to Google so it is aware of the amendments you have made and has a chance of ranking. We can also provide additional search engine optimisation services if you wish to make gaining a high ranking on Google a priority for your website.
We can also provide you with a number of further opportunities to help you get your website out there and grow your business upon going live if you wish, each comes with their own associated costs. These include:

“If the concept wasn’t enough, the marketing has blown me away. I’ve received an enormous amount of positive feedback from all genders, young and old who all comment on the name/design The Creative Collective came up with for me. I love driving around in my Brew Captain branded vehicle and handing out the professionally designed marketing items. This is my first time in business for myself and everything from start to finish was very simple, and easy working with these guys. It was a real pleasure and we’ll continue to use them as the business grows from a one man show to hopefully a full franchise.”
“I am so thrilled with what this company can do in a day. It has been such a breeze working with them and they have made everything really easy and simple.

I’m a small business owner and have been working with The Creative Collective for over 18 months now. Over this time, with there expert advice on all things marketing, they’ve helped grow my business from humble beginnings to something to be proud of. I hate think we’re I’d be without Kat and her team of tech heads! 100% recommendation for any business new or old!
I’d like to take the time to pass on a big thank you to Tamara, Arvind & Alan.This process has been seamless and very enjoyable.

Thank very much Arvind, you’ve been a delight to work with and appreciate your advice and patience as we worked through it all. I was very excited last night to be adding all the lovely colourful artworks!
“What a journey, and what a sensational result! Have spent some time this evening navigating through the back end of the site, making updates, additions and edits – very happy with the usability post handover. Congratulations on your creation and the teamwork that has brought about this better than expected result for our new brand and website.”
We engaged the Creative Collective for a website refresh on our tired online presence. The team were professional, clear, technically proficient, helpful and also provided timely guidance on how to get the most out of our project. I will be using their services again and thoroughly recommend engaging the Creative Collective team for your website / marketing needs.
“I want to thank you for the stunning website and all of your care and professionalism. I am simply blown away by how organised efficient, skilled and kind all of your team are. I couldn’t be happier with the decision to contract The Creative collective to build our company website. Over the years of running my business I have hired other companies and not had good results. The Creative Collective excelled in every aspect from start to finish and the results are beautiful. A huge congratulations to all of your team and a massive thank you to Gina Novoa whose project management has been flawless. I am beyond impressed. Thank you :)”
Tina Moore – Director of TMP Dance Studios
We have been working with Allan from the Creative Collective for around 3 years now and have never had a moments doubt that we are with the right team for us. Quick to respond to support emails and come back with a time table to sort the issue if it cannot be resolved immediately. We are very happy with the consistent uptime and response time of our website. We highly recommend Creative Collective.
