Domain names & E-Mail

You can use your existing domain name or we can help you acquire one. We can also help you set up an e-mail service linked with your domain.

WEBSITE TRANSFERS

If you have an existing website, we'll support a smooth transition to the new one.

Copy writing & Editing

A good story, and let’s face it, your website tells a story, is most powerful when it has credibility with its reader. At the very least this means the grammar and syntax are working and the punctuation is perfect. More than that, any piece of writing needs to flow structurally and thematically. 
 
If writing is not your thing, Bello Square can take a brief and create all the words your website needs. Or, you might like to provide a draft and have us wave a magic wand over it. An experienced editor can take your words, polish them up, re-work, re-order, tweak and trim them to make your meaning clearer and your impact sharper. 

Training

After completing each website, we include handover training so you'll to be able to use, update and amend your website without needing ongoing support.

We can also provide training support services beyond the handover, perhaps for new team members or you would like to learn about using additional features offered by the platform.

Ongoing Support

After the website handover and training we'll follow up to see how you're progressing. Is the site meeting your expectations? Does your copy need an editor's eye run over it?

If you would like us on the job for longer, we can provide extra services and/or support at pre-agreed rates.

    ongoing fees and charges

     
     

    Bello Square

    Bello Square does not charge any ongoing fees. The website handover means our part of the project is complete. The only additional fees are those outlined below. For the most part, these are hosting charges from Squarespace and special features you may choose to add.

    Squarespace account plan

    Websites we create are hosted on Squarespace, which means you'll need to sign up for a Squarespace account plan. Prices are very reasonable. The Squarespace plan will then be billed to your account either monthly or annually depending on your preference. Squarespace pricing ranges from:

    • $A16/month for personal websites
    • $A25/month for business websites
    • $A34/month for commerce websites

    You may cancel your Squarespace account at any time, or change your preferred plan option.
     

     
    Note

    In case you're wondering, Bello Square receives no fees, commissions or incentives from Squarespace. We just think it's a great service.

     

    e-commerce fees

    If you would like customer payments to be made directly to your bank account, you will need to use 'Stripe' - an e-commerce payments system which integrates with Squarespace. It's dead easy and we can help you set it up. You can also accept payments via PayPal or Apple Pay.

    Payment service providers have varying fee and charges.

    Squarespace charges a 3% fee on sales for Business plans.

    There is no transaction fee for Commerce plans.

    Domain name

    You can use your existing domain name or we can help you acquire one. Domain names typically require an annual fee which will depend on the service provider.

    Squarespace provides typical ".com" domain names from under $30 per year depending on the number and the type of domain names you require.

    e-Mail

    If you require email along with your domain name, a Google G-Suite email account can be organised via Squarespace and associated with your domain.

    3rd Party Applications

    While the Squarespace platform is feature rich, occasionally customised features require third party applications or code to be embedded within your website. Some of these applications are available free; others are not. We will never install such an application without your prior agreement.

    Our name

    The name Bello Square comes from local parlance for our home in the delightful township of Bellingen ("Bello"), combined with the platform we use, Squarespace.

    That's the literal explanation. Bello Square might also be interpreted as a meeting place; somewhere people connect with each other and build community. It is our hope to provide websites that do just that.

    Our values

    We are professional, ethical, efficient, and will listen to you to understand your needs, opportunities and constraints.

    We won't lead you up a garden path or attempt to provide services beyond your scope or our capabilities.

    We empower our clients by providing great websites that professionally represent them and their organisation, achieve the goals they set out and which they can easily manage themselves.

    Our IMAGES

    The images on this site showcase the beauty of the local region we share with so many creative minds, amazing businesses and committed community members.

    Happy Clients

     
    “I just love our new website - it looks great and has renewed my enthusiasm for the club’s activities. The members love it and keeping it up to date with the latest information and news is a breeze.”

    I needed to give our site a facelift to showcase the unique aerodynamics services on offer. But it needed more than good looks - I wanted to manage online bookings and payments automatically, I also needed to provide clients with simple calculators to make the complex physics easy to understand.
    This website delivers :)
    — Aerocoach Australia
    Tribe & Temple is an Etsy homewares business looking to make the move to our own online shop. As part of a phased transition, Bello Square created a lovely window front for me and linked it to my Etsy shop. My new website is ready to upgrade to e-commerce when I am.
    — Kath, Tribe & Temple
    I needed a website pronto to get the message out about our new start-up and its very first tour. But I also needed to keep it updated as plans evolved, and to be engaging for our customers.
    This site works perfectly!
    — Alex, Tour de Bello
    For years I was frustrated with our tired old website which was too complex to manage and update. We needed a better, simpler solution. Bello Square created a brand new site for us. It’s so much easier to manage and I’ve been able to develop it further myself. It has all the features we need and looks just how I wanted!
