When we work for you we get things done right! When we say we are going to do something, we do it! When we say we have combined experience of over 70 years (refer to what is written on our home page) we mean it! We speaking 100% truth. Honesty and integrity is our #2 policy here at Green Valley Digital (GVD)! Our #1 policy is RESULTS!
When you choose to have us work for you, you are choosing to get a guaranteed results RETURN ON INVESTMENT! We never provide false promises. We ONLY deliver results! When we agree to do something (anything) for you, we do it!
For example, when clients have us do marketing or advertising work for them we FULLY ‘untie our hands’ and REALLY go to work for them! We don’t rest on our laurels. Instead we ‘suit up’, go ‘all-in’ and ‘bat for your business! We do everything to gain as many high-quality leads, enquiries (and ultimately sales) for your business as humanly possible!
We respect you & your business and we never lose sight of the fact that you require a team you can trust and who WILL deliver! We back ourselves, stay relevant, keep abreast of the latest website and digital marketing technologies & techniques.
We do NOT ‘put on the airs’ or waste your time or money. “Poor man pays twice”, as the saying goes. When working with us WE ONLY provide the right solutions to achieve your requests, requirements and goals.
We are down-to-earth people! We are also positive people, up-beat and extremely capable. We cringe though at the idea of boasting, so we’ll leave it at that. Put simply, we are here to do great work and get great results! We also provide good energy.
We could ‘bang on’ here on this webpage and write more, but to be honest ‘words are cheap’ — vs ‘our ACTIONS and our conduct which speak WAY louder’. Contact us or phone us on 1300 887 427 if you want more information, want to trial us, want to get a feel for how we work first-hand or want us to work for you.
Thanks for reading all this 🙂
Who do we work for?
We work with clients all over this great nation and other locations as well.
Side note: If you are based in a rural or remote area with very slow or limited internet, you can post us USB stick(s) (or external harddrives) with photos, text, etc you want added to your website. Same too when sending us video files you want us to edit. Some of our clients do this — it is very effective.
Our team are based in Australia – when you work with us your money stays here in the Australian economy… and aids in supporting fellow families.
We work for businesses, organisations, NFP’s, charities, clubs, grass-roots groups, entrepreneurs and individuals in regional, large city, rural and remote areas. Most of our current clients are in the Eastern States of Australia.
How do we keep our skills up to date?
Each year (prior to COVID) we attended the DigitalMarketer.com Down Under Summit at Broadbeach, Gold Coast. We have also been DigitalMarketer.com Labs Plus members in the past. We also regularly attend WordCamps and other conferences, seminars and webinars. HubSpot, Moz, SEMRush and Udemy are just a few of the other online communities we utilise. We are also in the process of going through the content in the HubSpot Academy training. There are also some other online courses we are doing atm as well (expensive paid courses).
Side note: There are 8,760 hours in a year. We each invest over 800 of them to keep our skills up to date (at the cutting edge). We each have our areas of expertise. NO ONE PERSON can know or do everything in this industry; the ‘rabbit hole’ is WAY too deep!
Have we each really been working in this industry for over 18 years?
Yes our senior team members have been working in this industry FULL-TIME for the past 18+ years. We are veterans in this industry; we have experience and expertise far beyond most freelancers or fledgling 6-year-old (or younger) digital marketing agencies, of which there are many.
Where are we located?
We used to be all based in Brisbane, though not many of us grew up there. Most of us grew up in regional or rural Queensland. Most of us always wanted to move back, and have now done so. We love nature. Our business was named after the farm that Jay Daniells (the owner of GVD) grew up on called ‘Green Valley Grazing Company’ which was founded by his grandfather and then also owned and operated by his Dad.
Jay Daniells is based in the North Burnett and Wide Bay. Kylie Smith is based near Cairns. Jay Donaldson is based in Brisbane. Other team members and sub-contractors are based in Queensland and 1 in Melbourne.
Prior to lockdowns, typically Jay Daniells would also visit the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and Agnes Water every 6 – 10 weeks. In 2022 Jay is now looking at doing this again, plus Toowoomba and other areas as time allows.
Jay is also in Bundaberg every 3 or so weeks (or when requested).
Jay lived on a farm close to the rural town of Gayndah till he was 17, then Brisbane for 11 years after that, Mackay for 12 months and then Bundaberg for 14 years. He’s visited Sydney a few times over the years for week-long stints. Same too re. Warwick.
So far he’s only been to Cairns and Perth once. Jay believes travel is important to immerse himself in culture; both rural, regional and city. It keeps his design, innovation, business, economic and analytical skills where they need to be…. and the creative juices flowing.
We are a mobile business. Often we each work from our home-based offices, but we work from wherever we need to, when we need to thanks to Laptops, wireless internet and smart-phones.
Will we come to you for face to face meetings?
Yes we will if needed. In all honesty though, we use Zoom, phone and email a lot. Our clients (who are of all ages) find this to be REALLY effective.
If you have never used Zoom before, we show you how. It is amazing and very simple to use!
If though you need us to come visit you face to face, we can tee this up too, via a travel arrangement.
Side note: You can also book us for an intensive half-week or week-long marketing growth ‘war-room’ style growth planning consultancy appointment. Zoom is great for this, but face to face is certainly an option as well.
Do we only use the WordPress.org Website Engine for websites you create?
No we don’t just use WordPress.org for the websites we create. We select the best website engine for your project based on your goals.
However, WordPress.org is a very secure website platform when setup correctly on secure hosting. Because WordPress.org is open-source, it can also save you a lot of money in website license fees that other platforms charge. We also have lifetime unlimited usage licenses for some of the paid plugins for WordPress.org websites. This too saves you money longer-term.
Note too that many of the great Plugins built by the WordPress.org community are amazing and provide functionality to your website that would otherwise cost a LOT of money to custom-code. WordPress.org websites are POWERFUL and they save you a MASSIVE amount of money.
We have worked with many website engines/platforms in the past.
We work with Shopify if desired as well.
My website is not performing. Can we do a 'health check' audit and then tell me why?
We sure can! We’ve been doing website audit health checks for over 15 years.
It is part of our ‘discovery’ work. We investigate to ‘discover’ why your website is not performing (as in, why it is not generating enough quality website traffic, why site visitors/ traffic are not converting into good volumes of leads, enquiries and sales… AND also why your website is not achieving other goals you may have in mind (eg. great numbers of email newsletter sign-ups each month).
As part of the health-check process, we investigate your website and your direct competitors’ websites. We also use special industry software tools to inform you as to what SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), Google Adwords, Facebook Ads, etc your competitors are running.
We then provide you with a written report and talk you through our investigation findings. Plus we provide recommendations to turn your website into a ‘performer website’.
Side note: We offer health-check auditing for all types of services, not just websites. This includes but is not limited to video, animation, print graphic design, website text, SEO, Google Adwords, email newsletters, marketing and advertising campaigns, online sales funnels, marketing automation, signage, branding, etc.
Put simply, if your marketing and advertising is not working hard enough or producing the results you are expecting or wanting, we can review it, audit it, and tell you why and how to fix it.
Tell me about your pricing?
Our prices are extremely fair and competitive. YOU WILL NOT be disappointed if you choose to work with us. In fact, over 40% of our clients have chosen us after working with some other 3rd party freelancers or agencies, only to be very disappointed with their lack of ROI/ results,… and lack of experience, skills, etiquette, support, common decency (as people), professionalism, ability to ‘be real’ and communicate effectively, etc.
We are business people first and foremost (but we also have ‘heart’)…. and technologists, website experts, designers, brand developers, video & animation creators and marketers, second. We speak ‘business’. We speak ‘results’. We don’t speak ‘boffin techy nerdy language’ with you. It does not mean we can’t, but it does mean we DON’T. We solve problems, not create them!
We have packages to suit just about any realistic budget. We have MANY SEO packages, tailored ‘bespoke’ marketing and adverting growth options, growth coaching packages, logo design packages, website options (and also website package deals for those just starting a new business),… and MUCH more! You will not find another business that can provide as much ‘bang for your buck’ value as we do.
Also see info about our pro-bono work and the opportunities we offer here (click here).
We know if you commission us (or someone like us), you are parting with your hard-earned money. It does not matter if you are a small business or a larger entity, we care about making sure you get great ROI equally! Your money MUST produce a great RETURN ON INVESTMENT in our opinion. We make this happen!

The websites we create are also a cut-above-the rest. In fact we will design your website so it is THE best site compared to any of your direct competitors. This gives you a MASSiVE advantage and DRAMATICALLY increases your website leads, enquiries and sales goals, when combined with effective digital marketing and/or social media advertising including CORRECTLY implemented Facebook Targeted Ads, Search Engine Optimistion, Google Ads and many other strategies that actually WORK (if implemented correctly with REAL skill and expertise).
As the saying goes (and as written above), “Poor man pays twice”. Instead of doing that, dodge that bullet and come to us instead. You will get things done the right way the first time… AND achieve the results you want! PLUS be treated with decency. We’ll prove our worth, show we actually REALLY care and show that we want to build a trust-based working relationship with you.
