We will build your website with a unique colour palette and font select to match your branding. We will also layout your pages to suit your content and the purpose of the website (eg sales vs lead generation). We don't use templates and every BigFish website is unique!
However, using the BigFish platform means that we are limited to the layout options provided by the system. The system is very flexible and uses combinations of banners, card and grid effects that can be laid in any order.
You can see examples of BigFish layouts on our samples page.
If you think that you need many parts of your site to be designed in a very specific or bespoke way that is quite different to these samples then you will need a custom build and BigFish is not for you. We can prepare a proposal for a custom build project so please do get in touch with us through our contact page
If you are going to be selling online then you can take advantage of the e-commerce system provided with BigFish. Our system links with snipcart and so you manage all your sales, stock levels, shipping and client communication through the Snipcart control panel. You can read more about our e-commerce functionality here.
It's important that you are aware that:
Your domain is an important asset to your business. Its your address and we require that you register your domain yourself. That said, we will provide some helpful advice on where and how to register your domain if you have not done so already. Costs are typically HK$80 per year or HK$400 per year for a ".com.hk" domain.
We will provide the hosting for your website so you do not need to worry about setting up any hosting accounts. We will also point your domain to our hosting for you.
We require that your email accounts be set up on Google's business "Gsuite" system. In fact we recommend this system to all our clients but for BigFish it is a requirement. Google charges US$50 per year (or US$5 per month) for each email account.
If your business has a large number of email addresses then this might not be economical for you, and in that case we do have some options that we will need to talk to you about in detail. Do please let us know upfront if Gsuite is not a good solution for you.
Included with Bigfish are systems for:
If you think that your site needs some bespoke functionality in addition to these then BigFish might not be the solution for you
