FAQ

Q "What happens as my business grows and changes?"


Too often we hear from online retailers who have hit a ceiling with their existing website and are facing the prospect of starting over. Our approach builds on strong foundations, a strong working relationship, and allows for unlimited growth.

As your dedicated web team we will have a personal interest in your growth and business strategy. We will be proactive about recommending and developing new website features that improve the customer experience, help you develop your brand and customise the back office administration to suit your staff and other partners.

With a bespoke website you have the freedom you need to develop your business. Your customers will benefit from a unique retail experience. And you will have an edge on your competitors.

Investing in your website over time means your shop front can grow in sync with your business.

With strong foundations and an intelligent long term view for developing your online business and brand, the sky is the limit with Studio Outside as your website partner.

Q "I'm just getting started in online retail. Can I afford you?"


Start small and grow' is our motto for small eCommerce businesses.

When you're starting out you have to make every dollar count. Every dollar spent on the foundations of your website needs to give a return over the long term.

Our approach allows you to minimise your expenses while you're building your inventory, making your first sales and building a base of loyal customers.

Right from the outset we'll give you a site with strong foundations that will run efficiently and securely, give your users a great experience, and be easy for us to upgrade when your business needs it.

Some web companies will try to upsell you on features that do nothing to improve your website or your conversion rate. That's not cool. We prefer to build long-term relationships with our clients – which means that we treat you like a partner from the very beginning.

Q "I need hardcore functionality. Can you guys deliver?"


Rest assured, we have an armoury of amazing add-ons waiting to be fine tuned and woven into the fabric of your website – and we've got the skills and creativity to invent new ones. Starting from scratch we've created everything from an automated blog-to-email newsletter to a ferry booking system.

Hassle-free Web Hosting

Our Managed Web Hosting service lets you concentrate on running your business, without the worry of ensuring your website stays online.

Our cloud-based hosting environment is fast, secure, stable and designed by us specifically to work with the websites we build. A happy marriage between the website and host server means a seamless experience for your customers, and peace of mind for you.

Your media will be served from multiple servers in multiple locations around the world via our content distribution network (CDN). And with our expert caching and optimisation of code and scripts your customers will have a fast, seamless experience.

Your web hosting package includes FREE debugging for the lifetime of your contract – that's our guarantee that we're committed to getting it right.

Support and Training Contract

Our aim is to put you and your staff in control of your own site, and the best way to do that is with the right support and training to suit your business. We cover all the hot topics such as SEO and social media.

Powerful and Secure eCommerce Blogs

If you want to compete for high search engine rankings and attract new visitors to your site, we strongly recommend adding a blog to your retail site.

A blog is the most effective way of creating the rich supply of useful content that Google values so highly. The resources you invest in launching and maintaining your blog can pay off many times over in site visits and conversions.

We can design and build a framework for your blog including articles – which can comprise videos, photos, links and user comments – categories and an archive. Need help with creating great content? We can help you with strategy, targeted blog posts, video storyboards and production.

As a retail site, protecting your customers'  private financial information is of vital importance. Your eCommerce blog will be custom built by us to ensure the security of your eCommerce website and the server.
