After discovering the power of web development I created CyberBuilds.net to offer my web design services out of Auckland, New Zealand.
It started in 2013 when I first created a simple website for my Personal Training business that resulted in a string of sales despite my website being very poorly designed at the time.
Regardless I was still able to display my work, link social media, place it on business cards, signage on my car, list myself in Google Places, email my site to potential clients and add it into my monthly newsletters.
I furthered my website by writing blog content and producing YouTube videos which helped to boost Search Engine Optimization (SEO), drove web traffic, and saw return visitors that would eventually buy my services.
Sold on the idea of websites I went on to complete a Graphic Design certificate, and a Web Development Diploma which together gave me the foundation skills to build on and take my website to new levels. Now I would like to share it with others.
Step 1: Consultation & Design
We will meet so I can learn about your business, the services you provide and collect the content you will present on your website e.g. written content, images etc. etc.
If you do not have all of your content ready, no problem. We will use placeholder images / content to begin with. This meeting will give you an opportunity to ask any questions and make any specific design requests or changes to a design I may have in mind.
Step 2: Web Development
We build a fast, responsive, and secure website with the design from Step 1.
All of my websites are built with Search Engine Optimization in mind, using the right key words for your target audience and how Google will read your website.
Step 3: Website Launch
After launch you are able to use your website, it is visible to the world! We will continue to monitor your website, and make small adjustments as necessary.
You may also log in and update your website content such as the blog, images or your pricing tables for your services for example.
Fast, Secure and Responsive.
Websites includes an SSL Security Certificate, Blog (optional), SEO tweaks, and a Contact Form.
CyberBuilds.net is a great example.
The cost of keeping a website online -
- Web hosting fees
- Domain name purchase and renewals
- Website maintenance and updates
Non-exhaustive list of additional features -
- Booking Forms
- eCommerce Section
- Membership Section
I will spend 2 hours teaching you how to manage the content on your website.
You may login and create blog posts, change photos, products, edit written content etc. etc.
To clarify the above - you purchase a website for $500 + $150 and then after one year you pay another $150 each year. If you purchase any extra features the one time cost will be added to the $500. All of this comes with 2 hours of WordPress training from me personally.
The ongoing costs ($150) includes my time spent updating your website as WordPress releases new versions and plugin updates several times a month. I will be responsible for keeping your website updated, online, secure, and backed up. I can also make suggestions to you for getting the most out of your website by providing online marketing and sales advice.

I originally started it off as my Personal Training website but I have since transformed it into a fitness training tutorials blog, and paid membership website.
