Is your website driving people away rather than attracting business because it is broken?

At We Fix Websites we fix your broken website and take it from Meh! to Wow! There are some websites out there that are a real mess. Maybe the owner has not bothered to have their outdated information updated. It could be that their web developer has found greener pastures. Either way, there are many outdated websites where links do not work, phone numbers and email addresses do not exist anymore, and outdated technology means the website is not properly visible. We take care of this, for less than you would expect.

You do not always need a complicated website with over-the-top programming and content. Your site can be as simple as this one. It has only one page and very little clicking, tapping, or navigating is required. Simply scroll to find the information you are looking for.

Note that the websites listed here are only ones where existing sites have been redone. For a portfolio of new websites, check out our Andries Oberholzer Consulting portfolio.

The most recent revamp projects we have completed for clients

From small to large projects, there are always solutions to help you get up to speed again and make your business stand out. What is our success ratio? Out of every four clients we have contact with maybe two will continue to have their websites revamped. For us is is not about the number of clients we have, but whether they are happy with the work we have done for them and if the new website adds value to their business.

Propserve Management

Propserve Management

The domain had run for a few years but with very little in the way of updates, it just faded away. We suggested giving it a new face, making it responsive, and adding what was needed to establish a proper connection between the site's owner, the services they render, and the public. We needed a new domain name, more in line with the business name.

Again, this is an example of using minimalistic HTML and CSS, but properly written. The SEO score at launch was 89% and once the social media pages take off, the score will be well over 90%. For more information, visit www.propservemanagement.co.za.

On Point CoC

On Point CoC

Very often a basic website is all the client needs, the same for anyone looking for a specific product or service. On Point CoC specialises in issuing certificates of compliance for all water-related installations for homes. Did you know that if you want to sell your property, you not only need a compliance certificate for electricity but also one for water? On Point supplies this service.

It was a really easy website to do and offers what the client wants, no less and no more. For more information, visit www.onpointcoc.co.za.

Clenerack

Clenerack

The brief from the client was the redevelopment of a website for a business that supplies solar panel mounting kits and parts using Shopify. The previous web developer quit without completing the work. The problem with Shopify's templates is that they do not always allow designers to be creative. You stick with what you get. Instead of continuing with the current design, we performed a custom build first and then integrated the Shopify online purchasing functionality afterwards.

The client now has the best of both worlds – W3C compliant code, with the site running on Linux using Apache as the web server, as well as online purchasing functionality. This was a breeze, and really easy to accomplish. For more information, visit www.clenerack.co.za.

RWBE Geotechnical Drilling

RWBE Geotechnical Drilling

RWBE Geotechnical Drilling is one of the largest core diamond drilling and exploration companies in South Africa. They do exploration drilling wherever the client requires, no matter how difficult the terrain may be.

It had not been updated since 2014 and a revamp of the website was necessary to align it with modern trends and ensure it is fully responsive. Because the developer happens to have a good understanding of geology, putting together the content for the website was not difficult. The site uses a standard bootstrap template that was massively edited to remove what was not needed, and add functionality the client required. Notice how the large table for Completed Projects on the desktop version differs from the mobile version, done using a bit of CSS customisation. Visit the new website on www.rwbedrilling.co.za for more information.

Eazy Move Caravan Mover

Eazy Move Caravan Mover

Eazy Move Caravan Mover is a unique concept and helps you quickly manoeuvre your caravan or trailer in place. It is perfect for tight spots where using a vehicle in reverse is not practical. The owner's site had not been updated for some time as the original developer was not interested in "minor support". This is exactly the problem many owners have, that they require minor updates, and developers just do not see the need to place the new content.

We took on the job and it was really easy to do. The client did not require any over-the-top design; merely a functional one. We delivered on this. Visit www.eazymove.co.za to see how the unit works.

Dewaudio

Dewaudio

Dewaudio is a small but dedicated business which designs and manufactures valve-based audio products. The client wanted something different, a minimalist approach, and real photos. As you can see from the main page, the website is just that – an honest portrayal of the owner and his products, without any pretensions.

The website uses a very different layout and for some it could take time getting used to. However, it certainly stands out! It is a way to break away from the normal layout used by so many sites everyday. Visit www.dewaudio.com to learn more.

Independent Technology Security Systems

Independent Technology Security Systems

ITS provides top-quality security and networking systems for estates, game reserves, high-risk areas, and shopping centres. The old website had not been updated for months, and this just leaves a negative impression for visitors, and they move on and find someone else. Sometimes clients will say "I want my website to look like that one." We will explain what while we can, we will not just copy the look and feel of a competitor's website.

See how ITS Systems can assist you with your security requirements. View their website on www.itssystems.co.za for more information.

Roux Van Rooyen Accounting

Roux Van Rooyen Accounting

Roux Van Rooyen Accounting is a firm of accountants in Magalieskruin, Pretoria, that specialises in accounting, VAT administration, payroll management, personal bookkeeping, and other financial services.

The old website was last updated in 2014 and this is sure to drive away potential clients. It may have worked back then when we did not really use mobile devices to view websites, but now we are ten years further down the road.

We revamped the website, again to make it responsive, in line with modern web development trends, and it now functions as it should. Visit www.rvr.co.za for all your accounting needs.

FloorFundi

FloorFundi

The client runs a consultancy business that specialises in concrete flooring for various areas such as shopping malls, hospitals, factories, warehouses, and other high-traffic areas.

The client's instruction was that the site had to be simplistic, stripped of everything they felt was not required, and show only the most important information, as requested by the client. For more information, visit www.floorfundi.co.za.

Prepaid Electric

Prepaid Electric

Install a prepaid meter in your home and take control of your electricity bill. It is ideal for home owners who rent out their properties, and a prepaid meter ensures your tenants cannot leave in the middle of the night and leave you with unpaid bills. We fixed this one after the domain had been unavailable for some time. Getting the required details from the previous developer was a real pain, but we managed to negotiate it in a decent way, not seeking confrontation.

Ohmtek Solar and Electrical

Ohmtek Solar and Electrical

Ohmtek Solar and Electrical supplies and installs solar solutions for homes. Whether you are looking for a basic inverter and battery, with solar panels added later, or a full on system, Ohmtek will assist you. The quality of their installations is absolutely top notch, proven by visiting an existing client.

As developers, it is often necessary to spend time with your clients to see how their businesses operate as this will give you insight as to what is required on the website. We were fortunate that Ohmtek ended up installing our home's solar system and much of what they did is reflected in the website's content.

More information is available on www.ohmtek.co.za.

Flex Electrical

Flex Electrical

Flex Electrical supplies a range of electrical services as well as construction, home renovations, and maintenance. The original site did not work at all and the owner was at a loss as to what happened. We stepped in to provide a temporary solution – just a one-page solution – until a more detailed site is made available.

Since then, the client has grown in his business and has been able to supply more content to update the site and reflect their core business.

It is available on www.flexelectrical.co.za.

JDM Projects

JDM Projects

JDM Projects is one of the premium property developers in Mossel Bay in the Western Cape, and has existed since 1987. We did not take over this project from someone else, but revamped one of our own previous projects, in line with the client's new direction and growth.

As the web developer, we were recently complimented then the owner contacted us, saying that he had gained a new client for whom to build a multi-million rand project. The client said he chose JDM Projects because their website looked professional. We know that JDM Projects will deliver and build the client a home matching their expectations. View the website on www.jdmprojects.co.za.

Noordvandieberg

Noordvandieberg

Noordvandieberg is a community website in Afrikaans for those who live north of the Magaliesberg mountains in the Pretoria area. This domain was registered back in 2000 and is the oldest domain we own. It was dormant for some time and the time was ready to change the focus.

It was an easy website to do, and it uses a simple but very effective searchable table to allow people to advertise their businesses for free. It also focuses on improving the area through community involvement. It is available on www.noordvandieberg.co.za.

EasyLink

EasyLink SA

EasyLink SA ensures excellent connections and visibility for their clients, using LinkedIn. This is an example of a website that was written from scratch to get rid of messy WordPress code, which the previous web developer could not use properly. Updates, when they were made, were weeks behind schedule. We turned all of this around in a short time.

The new site uses creative code to perform certain functions but it is done in way that is not obvious or in your face.

It is available on www.easylinksa.com.

Valve Audio SA

Valve Audio SA

We developed the Valve Audio website back in 2004 for our client who is one of the best designers of stereo hybrid valve/solid state amplifiers in the world. Due to circumstances, someone else took over the domain and basically hijacked it. Since the "developer" would not release the domain (It is called cyber squatting.), we had to register a new one.

The website's visits confirm that valve technology is every bit as relevant today as years ago. As a web developer and one who is interested in all things tech, I own a Valve Audio Predator, a 200 watt per channel stereo hybrid valve amplifier, which I have had since 2007.
