As a small company, investing in a new and innovative website design requires a lot of internal debate. On the one hand, you know that a smart, attractive, and user-friendly website can bring in a lot of new clients. On the other hand, most services require at least 50% of the cost down with the other 50% paid upon the completion of the website—if not the whole amount paid up front.

This means that many small businesses pay for the cost of their new website before seeing any return on their investment.

That’s why we do things different at Zing Studio, offering a far more flexible payment option to small businesses that breaks up the cost over time and takes a little pressure off a tight budget. We’re excited to announce our new 12-month payment plan—perfect for small businesses in Geelong, Torquay, and beyond.

Best Homepage Web Design Principles for a Small Business

Why is website homepage design so important?

Because first impressions matter.

For many businesses, their website plays an important part in their marketing endeavours. A website’s homepage is its virtual foyer, a welcome area where visitors will spend some time before exploring the rest of the site. It is generally the most visited page on a website, and possibly the only chance for a company to create a great first impression. Leads may not always be converted here, but lack of a good first impression means few people are going to hang around.

Increase Local Business Ranking with Local SEO


Effectively positioning a business in local search results in search engines such as Google is one of the vital components of any online business marketing strategy. Local search engine optimisation (SEO) is therefore extremely important, but can be overwhelming and difficult to grasp. This article explores local SEO in more detail to make life a little easier for small business owners.

What Exactly is Local SEO?

Local SEO means optimising your website to ensure that your business ranks higher in “geo-based” search engine results—results based on one’s physical location. For example, if someone in Geelong entered the terms “best plumber Geelong,” a Geelong-based plumber would hope to appear among the top search results in order to earn that individual’s local business.
