We had a bit of a chuckle when we came across this blog article from a digital agency based in Auckland; stressing how important it is to get a secure certificate (https) because in their own words:
1 “website users panic about the security and safety of your website” if you don’t have one
2. “It protects your website and customer information from hackers and thieves”
3. “It will improve your search engine rankings”
All of which is true but… they don’t have one themselves! How can you impart urgency and importance to your audience while ignoring it yourself?
All our clients without secure certificates have been notified. If you haven’t yet taken us up on the offer to install one, we recommend you call us now. For the little extra you’ll pay, the benefits will far outweigh the costs.

Real estate is one of the biggest value investments you can promote online. As seasoned property developers, Kirkdale Investments realised they needed a web design company that would deliver a superior online experience to promote their new development, so naturally, they chose us.
What’s also important is to choose a web design company that stands up to their promises and meets deadlines; because every day that a site isn’t up, is a day of lost leads and opportunities.
Having designed websites since, well... last century (est.1999), we have our processes down-pat. Our team runs smoothly, with everyone accountable for a particular area and someone else coordinating all their efforts to ensure deadlines are met.
Don’t put your biggest marketing platform in the hands of web muppets - and believe us, there are quite a few out there! Choose a reputable agency with proven experience - for the record, we have twenty years!
Look at this site… take a deep breath and now tell me “how do you feel”? Relaxed, hopeful, happy?
The beautiful colours and imagery of this website work together to promote feelings of health and wellbeing. It is inspiring, illuminus and uplifting.
When designing websites we pay attention to every little detail. Every image, headline and colour has a role to play in communicating a theme. We take the time to understand your messages and value proposition first. Establishing trust and credibility is vital when promoting products and services online, and that’s exactly what we focus on when we partner with you.
How the content is laid out, and how the site is structured is also important as it shapes the users’ experience. Browsing should be easy, natural and enjoyable; after all, you’re taking each visitor on a journey.

A new website is an investment in your business, and so it pays to choose your web company wisely. A well-designed website will pay for itself in no time at all by getting you more leads, just like Constore’s new site has.
Even we were blown away by the difference in leads Constore’s new site made, and we’re used to seeing improvements. The goal conversion rate more than doubled overnight. Now one in eight visitors to this site ends up filling in a form or calling. What’s more, Constore’s bounce rate (which measures the number of visitors that land on a site only to instantly leave) has halved. What does this mean? Increased interest in their services, resulting in increased leads and sales.
Make sure you give us a call so we can explain how we will ensure your new site works harder and smarter for you. With clear ‘calls to action’’, professional copywriting, attractive design and easy navigation, we’ll get you the extra leads you need to make your business extra profitable.
Many people think you have to pay a lot for a complete end-to-end service like ours, but digitalstreams’ complete packages are cheaper than you think, which makes us the smart and affordable choice for those looking at redesigning their website.
When we took over Constore’s account it was falling well short of expectations.
Unfortunately, we see this all too often. Sometimes there is little to know management activity in the account, so the client is paying for work that is not occurring. At its worst, we’ve discovered bogus Google Ads accounts that didn’t exist, so the client was paying around $2,000 a month for nothing! Be wary of so-called ‘packages’ that take a lump sum off you each month to “pay google directly”. Always ensure you - not your agency, pay Google directly.
In this case, the agency was above board but 40% of the search terms were irrelevant, so Constore was paying for clicks related to ‘ottoman storage’, ‘wardrobe storage’ and ‘kitchen storage’, plus a range of other pointless search terms like ‘airport storage’.
Learning your hard earned money has been wasted by apathetic, lazy agencies who take a ‘set and forget’ approach to google ads management is distressing. They should be working to get you qualified leads - after all, you pay them good money to.
On a regular basis, your google ads manager should be:
Is your agency doing all this? We can find out! Ask us to audit your existing provider's management of your account. It’s easy to do and it costs you nothing.
