You need more than just a beautiful website.
Does your website:
Display complete information about your business, products, and services?
Capture the essence of your brand through design?
If you answered “no” to any of these criteria, it’s time to revamp your web design. That’s where our web design agency comes in.
We make websites that are cohesive, highly functional, and built on a good foundation — both with regards their technical back-end (how they are built) and front-end (how they look).
We design websites that are tailor-made according to your specifications and brand identity.
Our expertly made websites help our clients achieve their expected business outcome — a purchase, a download, booking of services, repeat visits; whatever it is, we help them make it happen.
The start of our web design process is us getting to know more about you and your company, your business goals and objectives.
From your answers during intake and following our scoping, we’ll provide you a design according to your specifications.
Our web developers will start creating the staging site where the approved designs will be implemented.
Of course, you'll have the final say before launch. The website will be presented for your review, changes, and approval.
After everything has been approved and QA tested, we will launch and turn over the new business website to you.
With One Step Towards (formerly 1768 Degrees) as your Whangarei Web Design partner, you can be assured that we will help your business put its best foot forward.
Whether you are just about to launch your business online or would like to revamp your existing website, we can customise our solutions according to your needs. As we aspire to make website design across NZ accessible for all, we have come up with the following web design packages:
Are you ready for a Whangarei Web Design Partner that gets you to where you want to go?
Web Design may be where we started, but that’s not all we do. Our team offers unsurpassed website design services coupled with SEO baked in, to fuel your business visibility.
our Website design process is tailored to showcase your company’s unique selling points and highlights what you do best. We design responsive websites that quickly climb SERPs, getting you the visibility and traffic you need to grow your business. From single landing pages, optimised pages to complex websites with functionalities such as ecommerce or mobile responsiveness, we achieve your business successes.
Your website’s design can draw your potential customer in and help them discover, learn, and engage with your brand, products, and services. Our website design services will help you communicate your mission and vision, drive your sales and engage your audience.
In retail, first impressions matter. That’s because unlike in a brick and mortar store wherein customers can touch, feel, and try on the products, they’ll have to rely on how good it looks on your website. Our experience in ecommerce website design ensures that each product you sell stands out and looks its best.
For websites that sell and offer services, there's One Step Towards (formerly 1768 Degrees) family. We work on your website to enhance functionality, improve user experience, and create up-sell opportunities for your business. We implement tried and tested methods as part of our web development services to design websites with easy-to navigate pages and mobile-responsive designs.
Have a website that’s not driving traffic or converting? It may be time for a redesign.
Redesigning your website can mean different things. If you’ve had your business website design since the era of Snapchat and MySpace, it’s definitely time to bring it up to speed.
We’re here to help you create an online presence that reflect our offline values.
Working with us as your web design company means your website will be up-to-date with Google best practice requirements as well as aesthetic designs.
At the end of the day, our goal remains the same for all our clients – to improve their bottom line and convert more visitors into repeat customers.
Our promise is simple: to deliver a traffic-generating, lead-driving, and revenue-increasing websites that provides the best ROI for your business.
Why isn’t my website getting any visitors?
The problem may not necessarily be the website design itself, but with how friendly (or optimised) it is for search engines. According to studies, over 95% of people who go on Google don’t even go beyond the first page of the results!
To get the clicks and traffic you want, your website needs to not only be on the very first page of Google, it also needs to be as close to the top as possible to get as much visibility from potential visitors when they are searching for something on search engines. No matter how good your content is or how beautifully designed your graphics are, if your keywords and headlines aren’t targeting the right audience, then you’re never going to get any visitors.
Do I really need to hire a web design company?
We’re sure you’ve been getting a ton of ads on social media for services and templates that promise you can build your own website in 3 simple steps but take our word on this one – hiring a trusted web design company will be the wiser and more cost-effective option in the long run. We know finding that partner can be hard, but we dont want you to kiss (or contract) lots of frogs (web design companies). Hence our 100 day promise.
Professional web designers aren’t just thinking about aesthetics – we’re thinking about functionality, accessibility, user experience, overall layout, and even mobile friendliness. A truly good website is able to seamlessly merge function with aesthetic. The problem with cookie cutter templates that are readily available online is that they’re often a one-size-fits-all solution. Best to leave the work to those who know how to design a website – Whangarei based One Step Towards (formerly 1768 Degrees). Our web design services will carefully sculpt your website to ensure that it mirrors your brand and speaks to your target demographic while highlighting your unique selling points. Because a website is more than web design.
How long will it take to get a new website?
The time it takes to set up a website will depend on the kind of web design services you’ve chosen. In our experience as a Whangarei web design, SEO and creative agency, launching a websitecan take as little as a few weeks to several months. We promise not to be the bottleneck to your project however.
Once engaged to be your creative and web design partner, undertake site design analysis as well as bench-marking to see how you fair against your competitors. We use this data as part of our Web Design guarantee, to ensure within the 100 days we outperform your existing site - or we give you your money back!
We also perform quality checks before your site goes live, and, unlike other web design agencies submit your site actively to Google. We set internal project management milestones to keep the project on track.
So, get your skates on as before you know it we will be asking for feedback on your new website.
How much does a Whangarei website cost?
The cost of building a website depends on the complexity of the project and your requirements. A standard web design and development package includes website analysis and pre-design; front and back-end development; website testing and QA. You might add other services to your package, such as: content creation; migration of existing content; SEO; or e-commerce. We apply standard man-hour costs for each aspect of your project. We submit a formal proposal which contains information about each component to all of our prospective clients. But once you see the site we build, you’ll see why many brands trust us as their website design partner.

Will I be able to update the site myself when it’s finished?
Yes! A website that you and your team will be able manage on your own is vital for your site to not sit in a corner and be forgotten about like the potted plant you forget to water.
Am I tied to your Whangarei Photographer?
Not at all. We work with companies all across Aotearoa, not just here in Whangarei. We proudly work with an array of photographers - and indeed recommend the best photographer for your needs. Whangarei photographers niche, and so we help ensure end outcomes. We don't want to develop a website for it to be let down by imagery. We can project manage and book your Whangarei photography session for you, or you can do this yourselves. What matters are images that work for your social media, Whangarei Website, SEO and paid ads.
While having a strong social media presence is important to any brand, it is not enough. This is because search engines can’t fully crawl or read social media accounts. Search engines have been found to favour content that is published on your own website rather than on a Facebook or Instagram post.
When social media companies change their policies on what is allowed, how it ranks and how traffic is generated, do you want to be at their whim or own and control your own platform?
A well thought out website also provides you as a business owner to share much more value to your customers - and in a manner that is of more value, than any social media account can.
TOP TIP: Google recommends writing at least 500 words per page and you can go as long as you’d like describing and discussing your brand, products, and services. (Just remember to be engaging!)
These days, there’s no distinction between “online” and “offline” marketing anymore. With people spending more and more time online, the best and optimum way to utilise your marketing efforts is to use both online and offline channels. Targeting only one will leave you leagues behind your competition.
Potential customers use both online and offline advertising to gather information on a product or service they’re interested in. For instance, when stuck in traffic you may be subject to a billboard ad, coupled radio advertising the back of a bus with (typically) a real estate agent smiling back - and this is all before you even take into account the shop ads you may pass. Whilst you may remember the company name - you are unlikely to remember a phone number - leaving you to go to Google and searching for the business or brand.
If your customer can’t find you online, the likely scenario is they will contact a competitor despite the fact they are looking for you - all simply because the final step of having an online presence was not there. Don't let your customers benefit from your hard work.
Investing in an experienced web development company in the Philippines ensures that your offline marketing efforts will be funnelled into an online channel as well as allowing you to run online campaigns. This widens your reach and allows potential clients to access you from anywhere at any time of the day. Having a well constructed site ensures they can also easily find all the information they need about all of your products and services, and can even allow them to conveniently buy it right then and there.
We offer site maintenance as part of our web hosting fees. We offer incredible value that means you don't have to worry about all those niggly extras that plague your website after it is built.
