Hi, my name is Lachlan Wales and I’m the founder of Hike. It all began at the young age of 13, after unwrapping my very first laptop. Quickly jumping into graphic design, I later ventured into web design than digital marketing.
Since launching in 2018, I’ve worked with many local Echuca businesses from all types of industries with one thing in mind. Return on investment.
A website shouldn’t be to jump on the bandwagon of having a “digital presence”, but a true business asset that should generate more leads, revenue, and profits. If that’s what you’re after, get in touch today.

Here are some of our most frequently answered Web Design questions and answers.
Firstly, it depends. A quote is based on the needs of each project, as every website is unique and requires different components. We design and develop custom websites specific to your needs, starting the process with a brainstorming session to best understand your business to provide a quote. Our smallest Bronze packages starts at $1,000. Please contact us below to get started!
Our standard timeline is between 4-6 weeks to complete a website, but this depends on the size, additional functionality, and the pace which each client works at. As we require feedback and content, this affects the time until completion.
No! We work with clients all over the nation and are always available by email, calls on Zoom meetings.
Yes! We love assisting clients in taking control of their own site and managing content. Upon completion, we will provide documentation with all of your access details for WordPress. Most clients can make simple changes (pricing, adding products, changing images) however we recommend a professional developer to complete more complex tasks. We offer hourly based assistance, and monthly plans if you do not want to make the changes yourself.
Upon meeting we require that you provide sample websites that you like in terms of functionality, and look and feel. After, we email you 5+ WordPress templates to review and choose from. Then, we begin with the chosen template and rebrand, update, and change it suit your business. Once this is complete, we go through 2 rounds of revisions, testing, and deployment.
The same process as Bronze, but we also get graphic designers involved in the project to bring the website to a higher level of completion. To keep it simple, like purchasing a top of the range car with leather and heated seats!
You get to see the website before it’s built. Beginning with a discovery phase and competition research, we then design your home page + 1 other from scratch in Photoshop. There are no limitations to design, along with 3 rounds of revisions.
The same process as Gold, but going further into a 5-page mockup with custom designs and built from scratch with team collaboration and multiple decision-makers. Security and functionality are a priority for large corporations.
We offer all clients affordable website care plans depending on their monthly requirements. For most, we cover the WordPress Core/Plugin/Theme updates, website backups, daily security scans, and downtime monitoring. This is not mandatory as we give all clients backend access, but you can contact us at anytime to make updates that we provide on an hourly basis.
This is optional, if required we can host and renew your domain which will be re-charged to you automatically. If you wish not to move your domain and hosting or would like to do so yourself, we’re happy to work in your environment.
Absolutely! On average over 50% of your visitors are using a mobile device, so this is critical. We test on multiple devices to ensure it’s responsive on all modern browsers.
A lot! Your feedback and input are vital to the website design and development process. We start by asking lots of questions such as your wants, needs, and likes before starting development. We also request sample sites, ideas, and functionality requirements before we kick off the project. Remember this is your website, and we need your direction to achieve your glory vision.
We require that you provide all copy and written content for the website. You know your business best, so it’s advised it comes from you. If you’re stuck, we can assist with copywriting to clean up your content at an additional cost of $100 per hour.
We’re only an email away! We’re here to help even after the launch of your new website. We pride ourselves on long term relationships and do our absolute best to provide a quality service at any means possible.
No, the build of the website does not include monthly SEO. Will your website be indexed and seen by Google? Yes, but that doesn’t mean you will rank #1. We do, however, provide SEO services and are ready to assist at any time.
