Welcome

Hi, thanks for visiting.  My name is Huia Maree Hikaiti. I am a Brisbane based Marketing Creative and WordPress Developer.  I maintain a modest portfolio of truly awesome Clients, while studying the Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care and working in the Industry gaining practical experiences. I aim to use my hands, technical skills and community mind to make a real and positive difference.   I welcome you on my journey and invite you to learn more about my studies  or view my latest work.

So what can you do Miss H?

There is Plenty my friend.  But lets start with this:

 

I design and develop websites.

Website Design

I develop websites using WordPress, a free and open source software and content management system. It is robust and flexible enough to create a company website, online shop or portfolio of any size. Your website is built upon a system that major companies across the world use and trust.

Latest technologies

I use WooCommerce, PayPal and Stripe to create secure shopping websites that can start earning your business money.  From Subscriptions and Memberships to a full online catalogue, your virtual shopfront is now just one click away!  Contact me to learn more.

Tailored Support

Your business is unique and you deserve to have dedicated support that is tailored to your needs.  As a Freelance Web Developer, I am here to give you transparent advice and service – so you can choose any level of support you need, want and can afford. I am special like that.

Ready and Responsive

Does your website need an overhaul, update or to be mobile responsive?  I design beautiful, mobile-friendly websites that are as functional and capable of growing as your business is.  You can even update your own website from your mobile phone or any device – with no special software required.  Now that is handy.

Of course you have Questions..

Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some questions that I am asked the most frequently (aside from How Much?..).
How do you save me time, money and sanity.
Many of my Clients refer to themselves as ‘technologically challenged’.  Others find that after going the DIY Route with Wix, Vistaprint or other ‘free’ website builder – that they are left out of pocket, own no design and can’t upgrade without paying the fees.  Others (like you), understand that their time and resources are better spent where their strengths and profit lies. I offer a tailored solution that saves you the pain of going through the DIY process. A self-hosted Wordpress website  saves  money (there are no fees to use it) and time (your website is easily exportable and once set up, is very user friendly.    From a simple 1-page responsive website to a complex shopping cart – I handle the task from start to finish. So you can give a sigh of relief – and a little whoop of joy that you have an awesome website and managed to save $$$ off that ridiculous quote for a custom made website that locks you in, for good, to a company who makes money selling the software that I can set you up with – for free.  Need to know more?
So why WordPress? And what exactly is it?

WordPress is affordable website and content management system for every sized and type of business.

WordPress is a database driven Content Management System.  In other words, it organises your content, images and files into a manageable control panel.  It allows you to add an unlimited number of pages and posts – which all gets stored in your own database. You can also customise nearly every aspect of your website – and the potential to add functions is limited only to your skills, imagination and budget.

  • What sets it apart – is that it is FREE.
  • It is well supported by a massive community
  • Upon installing WordPress, it works straight out of the box
  • The design options are limitless.  Enhanced even more if you have CSS, HTML coding skills.
  • Updating and adding content is a breeze.  Even rookies can get it done.
With WordPress as your CMS, there is no ‘reinventing the wheel’.  You are not locked into Proprietory Software, nor will you ever pay to use it. It works out of the Box and from your dashboard.  DIY or get Professional support to get the website of your dreams.
What if I want to add things to my website?

Supercharge your website, easily.

You can upgrade your website at any time. I work with tools from the most trusted development partners, knowing that your website is robust and flexible enough to meet the demands of your business as it grows.

WordPress works great with many free tools already available by simply ‘plugging’ them in.  Also available are premium or paid plugins which extend your website that can do amazing things like; turn it into a booking platform, create complex forms and autoresponders, email newsletters and sell almost anything! When we work together, your needs and goals will help us to decide the best and most cost effective way to achieve it.

Does it play nicely with the Big Guys?

WordPress plays nicely with the major development players and hosting partners.

Just some of the friends it get along incredibly well with are: WordPress |  Elegant Themes  | Google |  WooCommerce |  PayPal  |  Stripe  |  Facebook Developer ManageWP | BlueHost  | Gravity Forms | MailChimp | Twitter | Instagram | Pinterest |   All Social Media Platforms |

Okay, but what do you DO, Miss H?

 “I would like to recommend one of our group members who has provided web building services for me.  Huia Maree Hikaiti is absolutely a gem and provides outstanding value.  

She is dedicated to getting things just the way you want them, and has the patience of a saint.” Pam Stellema

CEO, Business Coach, JP, Salon Savy

I’d had some terrible experiences with web designers in the past. I wasted money and time and my site was having ongoing issues. But when I stumbled across Huia, from my first contact with her I felt she listened to my concerns and gave me sensible and practical solutions without ripping me off. I subsequently commissioned her to completely re-vamp my website, not only to make it look more appealing but to operate more effectively. During the process she gave me all the training and support I needed, all while keeping within my budget. We have now been using Huia as our only Web Support for almost 2 years now and she keeps us up to date with the latest web options and ideas in increasing traffic and sales for our business, while always being aware of “costs Vs sales” for our small business. I trust her implicitly with all my security details and transactions, and I know that she will continue to play a huge role in the success of our store for many years to come. Huia operates with integrity and always has her client’s best interests at heart. She goes above and beyond with her support and I cannot speak highly enough of this woman. I have recommended Huia to many friends and will continue to do so because she’s the best. Thank you Huia. Jo Spence

Early Childhood Educator – perspective, articles and debates

I challenged myself to gain as much experience, mentoring and learning in the Early Education and Care sector over the summer months.. Aside from an initiation of fire, snot and other unmentionables, my immune system is completely shot and I have been vulnerable to every lurgey floating about.. things are pretty good and the Children are GREAT.
