Turbostart

Looking to get your website up and running quickly? The Queensberry Turbostart offers a quick website set-up using our platform, Workspace. Once you've got your brand design, we can build your website for you. 


What is a Turbostart?

Queensberry's Turbostart doesn't offer a brand or design makeover. Instead, we build a website based on one of our current Workspace themes, incorporating your existing logo and other brand elements. Depending on the outcome you’re after, we can coordinate with your current site, and add cross-navigation to it. We'll also set up your slideshow, galleries and social media settings, your price lists and shopping cart.

Frequently asked questions

Can you customise the look of my site? 

Yes. Although we will use an existing Workspace theme (template), we will incorporate your logo, and can make changes to HTML / CSS so your site reflects your brand colours and style. However, these are edits, not major redesigns. If we can't accommodate your custom requests under our standard TurboStart service we will let you know (see costs, below).

Will moving my site to Workspace affect my SEO?

Although moving your website to Workspace may have an impact on your SEO at first, Workspace has a way to redirect your links so you don’t loose your SEO ranking. Go to Settings > Get found > URL redirection.

You can add meta keywords, webmaster tools and analytics to your pages, which will all contribute to your SEO. Remember search engines like quality content. Think about the words users will type to find your pages and include those words in your website.

What if I already have a website but want to use Workspace for sharing and selling my work? 

You can add links to external sites in your Workspace site navigation, and we can work with you to integrate your Workspace site so that it reflects your main website, Facebook page etc, while it shares and sells your work. This works with external blogs as well. 

How much does it cost? 

Turbostart costs US$295, including limited customisation and ongoing changes to the site design. There may be an additional fee if you want to make changes after the initial setup, and/or the design requires major changes to the HTML/CSS. We will discuss this with you before incurring any extra costs. Workspace website hosting, and your own custom URL, are included in your annual Workspace subscription. We also offer email integration with Google Mail under your own domain name.

What will I need to begin the Turbostart? 

Before we set up your web pages, we will ask you to send a list of pages you want to include in your website, e.g. Home Page, About Us, Portfolio etc, and the content for those pages. We will ask for your logo and all the images you’d like on the site (sent through Dropbox, compressed zip folders or WeTransfer files).

How long does it take to set up my website? 

Your Turbo Start site can take up to two weeks to complete, sometimes longer depending on how many sites we're working on at the time. At your end, setting up for Turbo Start can take between 4-5 hours. The more organised you are the better. Make sure you have all your content ready to send us, and a clear idea of what you want your site to look like.
