Websites that Perform
The websites we design achieve results for the businesses they represent!
We ensure your website is an excellent and accurate representation of your business! We also ensure it is a WAY better website than that of ALL your competitors. We do this by taking the time to do competitor research well BEFORE we start designing your website.
Each of us have 16+ years of business and marketing experience. Our senior website designers have over 18 years of experience. We inject our expertise, skills and knowledge into every website we create!
When you work with us, you will find:
- We talk normally and don’t use excessive industry jargon
- We have a very refined process. You will find our process to be straight forward and pain-free.
- When you call or email us you speak with the same person (or team members). You are not palmed off to someone who knows nothing about you.
- We care about your business’s success!
For many years customers have received HIGH-value websites from us at prices they can afford! We are HIGHLY affordable! We have a range of options. We even provide repayment plans and finance.
When you first approach us, you will be speaking with a down-to-earth friendly expert, not a sales rep. In fact, we don’t employ sales reps here. ALL our team are highly experienced and even our intern is WAY more highly trained than your average website designer.
We work with you to understand what your needs, requirements and goals are. THEN and ONLY then do we formulate a plan, present options and proceed, once you are totally happy and confident.
Call us on 1300 887 427 to discuss your next project or website needs.

“We found Jay and his team at Green Valley Digital to be highly enthusiastic. It was infectious! They are ‘walking-inspiration’ in our book! Not only are they all passionate and highly skilled people, they are easy to work with & easy to chat with…. and WOW their weekly or fortnightly one-to-one sessions are amazing! Book in with Jay for this; you will not be disappointed!”
“Over the past four years, Jay and his team from Green Valley Digital have provided us with exceptional production, development and ongoing support of our North Brisbane Partners in Recovery websites. He has been incredibly patient, accommodating and understanding with our requirements, even when timeframes seem unreasonable due to our last minute requests and deadlines. Jay and his team are reliable, responsive, open with their communication and strive to keep us up to date during any of our projects. We value his knowledge and expertise and will continue to support his business for ongoing and new projects.”
“This is no ordinary business! We have worked with other SEO agencies and website designers and marketers before but found they were lacklustre to say the least! They kept us in the dark, took our money but delivered very little in the way of assistance or growth for our business… there was no profit increase what-so-ever. Jay and his team are the complete opposite! They are incredible! We receive regular updates from them, SEO rank reports, analytics reports (that are easy to understand), amazing data from HotJar (if you have not used this software, we highly recommend you do), our website now looks fantastic AND they have helped us reach every single one of our goals! Thank you SO much to Jay and the team! We wished we were referred to you years ago!”
“Our old website was ugly, uninspired and unwelcoming and we didn’t rank in Google, nor did we often receive online enquiries. Then we approached Jay. He provided us with a fantastic new website that truly reflects our business and its values. It has dramatically increased our visibility in Google and number of enquiries. Jay and his team delivered on all this superbly! Jay even educated us on Google ranking, SEO, Adwords, landing pages, industry benchmarking, eNewsletters and much more. We also found Jay to be very collaborative; he would and still does always respond to emails and phone calls quickly (even later in the evenings). Thank you Jay!”
“We recently got our website created by the Green Valley Digital team! OMG, what an amazing experience and an amazing website! We decided to go with the highest level of website service. The dedicated Zoom sessions each week made it soo easy for us to get the planning of the new website done and made us feel extremely confident that we had chosen the right team to create our new site. During the project, we also learned a LOT of new skills to bring more traffic to our website. Jay even provided us with excellent videos on YouTube to watch and free courses that we could do. We did it all! We’re now doing more training with Jay and are seeing big gains in traffic to our new website, AND big increases in sales! Thank you soo much Jay and GVD!
We work tirelessly to produce high-quality performer websites for small and medium-sized businesses, organisations, NFP’s, clubs, charities, grass-roots groups and individuals. We also have experience and capacity to work with larger entities. We dedicate ourselves to each and every website project and client.
These websites also make it easy to advertise promotions, marketing campaigns, employment opportunities, events, special offers, landing page funnels and ANY other feature you can possibly think of, or ever need or want!
There is no limit to what can be created. Our developers can also custom-code web applications, interactive experiences and SO much more!
Two of the most common types of websites we create are:
1. Small Business Starter Websites:
A one-page website may be all that is needed initially. This can often be a high value and cost effective initial interim solution, especially when in business start-up phase. Alternatively, a small multi-page website may be an efficient entry level solution. These ‘starter websites’ provide you with a fully functional website that is mobile phone optimised, professionally designed, search-engine friendly and can have a blog, image gallery, online booking system or any other features added.
2. Tailored Custom Website Design:
These websites are typically larger in size but are still streamlined, fast to navigate, read and understand. They help you achieve aggressive business growth and longer-term business goals! We have built many of these websites over the years. If you have not had experience with this type of project, it may seem like a complex task. Once upon a time, we did too… but that was 20 years ago! We have streamlined processes and methods to make the project as simple as possible… and of the highest professional quality. We also produce online shops, online product catalogue systems, login portals, eLearning platforms, membership websites and ANY other type of website you can possibly think of.
Do you also fix existing websites?
Yes. If your existing website is broken or needs an overhaul, a refresh, or new features and functionality added, we can most certainly help.
I understand the importance of keeping my website up to date so it ALWAYS accurately reflects my business, services and products. I don't have time to update it myself though. Can you?
Yes, we most certainly can! We have expert team members who manage websites for our clients. Updates can be done as needed… or you can sign up to one of our service plans and receive monthly discounts and other benefits that save you money.
Please note: We are VERY fast at what we do and are extremely detailed-focused. Typically we can do updates on a website three to ten times faster than someone who does not work on websites every day of their life.
Do you help with writing website content?
We sure do!
We help you at every stage of the writing process so that you can EASILY create your website content. OR if you don’t have time or don’t feel like you should write it yourself, we can write really good text for you.
We EVEN write high quality and extremely well-researched blog article content for clients that want to invest in inbound marketing and don’t have time to write blog articles themselves.
Side note: If you are not sure what inbound marketing is, we have included a short explainer video below.
Please note: We are very collaborative with all our clients. Some clients even like to write the rough drafts of their blog articles themselves and then have us enhance and finalise them.
There are a HUGE number of ways we assist our clients. We even provide proofreading, image optimisation (optimising for web), graphic art services and blog published services.
A Few of the Website Designs we Have Created
Below are just a small hand-full of websites we have created in recent years. Some others are also in our portfolio. Because we work via Confidentiality Agreements with many of our clients, there are MANY other websites we cannot display here in our website.

Yep they sure are!
We know many businesses add, modify and pivot services and products rapidly within their business based on customer demand, market trends and forecasts. This gives them the winning edge. They also conceive marketing and advertise promotional campaigns and seasonal marketing initiatives quickly.
Based on our experiences serving clients over the past 15 years, we know you need to be able to update your website FAST to reflect these business ‘happenings’ and other activities you wish to promote quickly.

Additional Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some additional frequently asked questions we are sometimes asked:
We are time-poor but we regularly need to update our website. Can you do this for us?
Yes we can. We have methods and processes that make this very easy. We also use a job ticketing system to ensure we do all the jobs you send us. No job will be missed. We get jobs done fast, accurately and professionally. We don’t take short-cuts.
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 also work with the Shopify if it is desired by the client.
My website does not perform. Can you audit it and then tell me why?
We can be commissioned to provide detailed website audits where we investigate your website and provide you with a written report and talk you through our investigation findings and recommendations.
We offer auditing for all types of services, not just websites; video, animation, print graphic design, website text, SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), Google Adwords, email newsletters, marketing and advertising campaigns, online sales funnels, etc. 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.
What are some of the ways to increase the performance of my website?
There are many, many ways to increase the performance of your website. It all depends on your business and your unique goals. However, here are some that are almost always used on every website we create: Strong Value Proposition Statement on the home page, sub-heading statements, publishing your points of differentiation, unique selling points. A REALLY important one is ‘proof to support claims’ which builds trust. Anyone can say anything about themselves on their website. it is the proof that backs it up that leads to trust, which leads to enquiries and sales.
Some examples of ‘proof to support claims’ include: customer testimonials, reviews, case-studies, awards, certifications, licences and accreditation.
Your website also needs to have ‘excellent offers’!
The website REALLY needs to be designed and written for your ‘ideal targeted customer buyer personas’; aka ‘your ideal customer audience types’.
Using your website to build leads REALLY increase your sites performance too.
A traffic acquisition strategy that we can help you with will also DRAMATICALLY increase the performance of your website… BUT ONLY if your website itself is high quality. if it is not, we can fix this.
Landing pages, promotions, special offers and other marketing activities added into your website work great too.
Typically over 50% of your website visitors will visit your website on their mobile phone. It is therefore essential that your website can be easily used on a mobile phone.
Additionally, your website should be easy to understand at a glance, memorable in its marketing messages and cater to the various ways in which people digest information when in research mode. We all know people are time poor. The website therefore ALSO has to be designed with that in mind.
