I used to build websites for my friends as a hobby. As a computer scientist that researched and developed games and tools at bunbun.com.au for more than 10 years, websites are not a challenge for me to build.
However, after talking to more than 20 Australian small business owners, I discovered that the prices of website has skyrocketed and continued to. As customers now look for businesses online, these small business owners told me how they are forced to build their own websites using website builders in order to stay within budget while struggling between managing a website and running their business at the same time, it is too much work for them to handle.
Pickedthis is founded to help businesses achieve an effective online presence in the form of a website. Since the look and feel of a website affects the business it represents, we have built our Pickedthis premade website editor using our own in-house technology to help businesses take the stress and guesswork out of web design by enabling them to visualise their future website in their own time at no cost.
We understand that our customers may not be familiar with the creation and maintenance of websites, and that is why we provide website servicing and support for our customers. Due to how the technology behind premade websites work, your website will be ready in a few days after we have started working on your order. While the process is not instant, you receive support along the way to ensure your website is the way you want it before we make it accessible by anyone worldwide.
Our team is highly experienced in the design and development of websites. We utilise various technologies and design practices to maximise the effectiveness of your website reach your audience as well as search engines. Technologies continuously change, but so do trends, so we actively research and seek feedback from people to serve you better.
Pickedthis is 100% Australian owned and operated from our office in Victoria, supported by the Australian Government initiative, New Entreprise Incentive Scheme (NEIS). New businesses formed under NEIS contracts are regularly monitored to ensure the businesses operate legally and ethically. If you have any questions or comments, including placing a special order or custom website order, please feel free to contact us.
