There is no charge for building the website for existing LEAP Office and LEAP Conveyancer clients.
For starters, as long as you are a LEAP client, there is no cost for building or hosting the website. As of 2014, all our websites are built using WordPress which is one of the most widely used and user-friendly systems available. Plus you have the peace of mind of knowing that your website is securely hosted with Amazon Web Services, so reliability isn’t an issue.
Yes, we can, as long as they provide a design based on one of our templates.
We can set these up for you on a chargeable hourly basis at the standard consulting rate, which is currently $160 per hour (ex GST). If you need this service, just let us know and we will send you a chargeable authority for the extra work.
The first step is for you to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request and complete the online website questionnaire. Once you’ve submitted the questionnaire, your website goes into our work queue, which requires between 1 and 12 weeks’ lead time, at any given time.
Yes, you can connect your own domain or domains to your new LEAP Website. We will deliver the website to you on a staging domain (like my-firm.leapwp.com.au) which you are welcome to use in your marketing if you don’t own a domain.
If you do own your own domain you will just need to arrange for two domain updates to be made in order to connect the domain up to the website. We’ll send you specific details of the updates when we hand the website over to you, which you will then need to forward along to your IT support or domain host for actioning.
Ask us if a fast track spot is available by emailing email@example.com. If there is a spot available we’ll get a draft to you within two weeks of receiving your payment of a one-off fee of $550 (inc GST), providing you have submitted your online questionnaire.
Yes, we do. You can select from our library in the online questionnaire. Bear in mind though, that Google rewards unique information-dense content, so we recommend that you make time as soon as you can to make the generic content more specific to your firm.
No, unfortunately we don’t have the resources to offer these specialised services.
If you don’t have a logo, don't worry. We can use your firm name as the logo, in a similar font to the one you already use on your letterhead or business cards.
We recommend Lift Legal for assistance with other marketing services. They can help you launch your website and also offer newsletter content written for you so that you can get on with the legal work. They are currently offering a 4 month trial of their newsletter service to LEAP clients – contact Lift Legal directly for more information.
We will advise you to make a backup of the content of your website so that you can give that to another web designer to use when building a new website. We cannot continue to host your website if you are not a current LEAP client.
You will be able to log in to your website to update the text, add pages, make blog posts, upload photos for pages and so on. We have customised the platform to make it as simple as possible to do these common tasks.
Your website will be part of our WordPress multisite network, which means that we will look after the behind-the-scenes work like updating the software, plugins and themes at no extra cost to you. This means though, that you won’t be able to install your own themes and plugins as you would do if you had a standalone WordPress website, nor make changes to the .php files. We have a set range of themes and plugins available, which are only added to after an extensive testing and evaluation process.
We will do some basic search engine optimization (SEO) when building your website. However, there are plenty of user-friendly tools within WordPress that allow you to update and maintain the SEO content on your own.
Go to www.leap.com.au and log into the client space using your usual firm login credentials. Look for the website questionnaire under the menu item ‘Technical Tools’. If you’re not sure of your firm login credentials please call the Helpdesk on 1800 007 709.
No, simply apply for RapidPay and they will automatically provide you with access to fast payment options including Visa, MasterCard, American Express and BPay. More information at www.rapidpaylegal.com.au
