    Website Services

    Do you want to create, enhance and grow your online presence? We design websites that deliver a return on your marketing investment.

    Website design for every type of business.

    We are experts in WordPress website design and are also great at online marketing (if we do say so ourselves!). We are based on the Gold Coast in Queensland, and we work with businesses all over Australia in a range of industries. We will learn about your market, customer and their pain points; and show you how a well-designed website can accelerate your ideal client’s journey from being a lead, then a prospect and finally, becoming your loyal customer.

    Mobile friendly, responsive web design

    We design your website with your customer in mind. No matter what device they use, they will enjoy a seamless experience every time.

    eCommerce website

    If you want to start an online store from scratch or grow your current sales, we can help. We specialise in WooCommerce and Shopify to make online selling a breeze.

    Designed with the user in mind

    We will design your website so that your user will find it easy to navigate, select what they need, and make a purchase.

    Your choice of platforms

    Because we are open source website designers, we offer you the choice of platforms: WordPress, Shopify, WIX or Squarespace. That’s right, we’ve got you covered.

    Search engine friendly

    All our templates and designs are SEO friendly, which means it will be easy for your potential customers to find you online.

    Tailored WordPress templates

    We know that each business is different. That is why we customise your website template to fit in with your existing brand assets.

    Complete website design and development

    From strategy to launch, and beyond. We are with you the entire way.

    Create

    We work with you to develop a tailored solution for your business, whether you need a new website, or are looking to redesign your online presence.

    Enhance

    Enhancing the online presence you already have starts with a review of your website. We will listen to your requirements, and from there, the sky is the limit!

    Grow

    We will take a deep dive into your current marketing, and look at where your website sits in the mix. Then, we will work with you on ideas that will see your results soar!

    Website platforms we work with

    We might be biased in our choices, but we are flexible and will fit in with your needs.

    WordPress

    WordPress is hands down the best choice for an open-source content management system. It can literally achieve anything you desire. We like to say, if you can dream it, WordPress can do it!

    Shopify

    If you are setting up an online store, Shopify is by far the easiest platform to use and manage. There’s no need to worry about updates or hosting, it is all included in the monthly fee.

    WIX

    When you’re new in business, WIX is an affordable, drag-and-drop platform that allows you to achieve a professional, yet tailored, design.

    Squarespace

    Squarespace is often referred to as the ‘Apple of website builders’. It is known for its beautiful templates and user-friendly drag-and-drop visuals. Another plus—the monthly fee includes hosting and SSL security details.

    I loved working with Katie to create our new website after our rebrand. She takes a really collaborative approach and is a great educator of everything websites and marketing. I loved that Katie took the time to really understand my business and our needs at the start and the completion finished with training so I know how to make updates and navigate the backend myself. 5 out of 5 for Absolute Web Design

    Absolute Web Design delivered my business a beautiful, fast, dynamic website. It takes my prospective clients on an easy-to-follow journey that I know will lead to increased conversions.

    Despite previously being landed with a very disappointing website from another provider, the whole process with Katie was stress free, cost effective and I knew I could truly trust her. She really knows her stuff and had a genuine interest in my business and making sure what we ‘put out there’ was going to work with my clients. No cookie cutter website for my business!

    For me, the process of mapping out the website, it’s hierarchy, the messaging and brand was invaluable. These things were previously mostly still in my head, but are now professionally laid out, clean and eye-catching.

    I particularly loved that Katie took the time to suggest creative assets that will now be used throughout my branding in general. And has also added dynamic content to the website, rather than just the standard text/image. It is these thoughtful extras that I feel will make my website stand apart.

    Finally, as with all website launches, there were one or two technical hitches (on my part), that Katie made sure were resolved as quickly as possible and fuss free. I truly felt Katie prioritized my business and went above and beyond to make sure we went live and that we were happy.

    I will 100% be using Absolute Web Design for any web projects on my website and would recommend her without hesitation!

    Thanks Katie 😊

    Katie is amazing at her craft! I honestly don't know whereI would be with out her. She crafted my website from listening to my business needs while also intuitively knowing my niche. Her continual support is over and above. I can not recommend her highly enough!! 5 stars form me. Victoria Heringhaus, Chakra Medicine Woman.

    I've been working with Katie since 2021 as my virtual Chief Marketing Officer looking after my brand, website, and packaging of my new educational services.In that time I have found her to be incredibly easy to work with; self-starter, takes responsibility, actions without unnecessary follow-up, anticipates my needs and challenges me, recognises that I am busy as all hell and so she makes sure she gets feedback so I don't become the roadblock. When she wants input, she provides worked solutions to choose from and a recommendation as opposed to a question that will delay progress. She is only interested in the right outcome for me, rather than being wedded to only her favourite idea. If she comes across a problem, she solves it. If I come across a problem, she solves. If I'm snowed under, she just pitches in and helps out.Impressed? Totally!Looking forward to working with her more? Absolutely!Did she pay me for this recommendation? Nuh Uh! I'd willingly tell anyone.She is dependable, reliable, accessible, conscientious, and creative.

    We found Katie to be trustworthy and generous when creating a website for our small family business. We had created most of the website ourselves, however had encountered some glitches. Katie was honest in her assessment of what was required to fix the errors, was clear in her communication, and prompt in carrying out the work. I will continue to recommend Katie's services to all.

    Working with Katie was super easy! I contacted her and gave her a very unrealistic deadline of having a website live in just over a week and she made it happen! The whole process from the discovery call to the handover of the website was so amazingly easy - Katie's communication was amazing, I loved the suggestions that she put forward and, most importantly, I love my new website! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Katie to anybody.

    Highly recommended Katie from Absolute Web Design. She goes above and beyond for her clients, does an amazing job and in a timely manor.
    I started my business almost 3 years ago now. When I started I had no concept or theme in place just the business name. Katie was exceptional. Katie guided me and along the way developed the most perfect logo. I still have many people comment on my logo and how clever it is - as much as I would love to take the credit I cant and don't and let everyone know how fantastic Katie is. Katie also arranged for my printing needs which met my expectations- as a wedding planner and stylist everything needs to look appealing to our clients and it was. 3 years on I needed to tweak my logo to work in with my business brand now its evolved. Within literally minutes Katie had done what I asked and nailed it first go. I had put it off as it was another job to do and really these things are painful and I thought time consuming. Should have come to Katie ages ago to make the change had I known it was going to be so quick. Katie is highly professional, efficient and extremely affordable. I have no hesitation in recommending Absolute Assistance and Katie to anyone who needs IT help.

    I could not have achieved what I did last year without Katie....building a web site setting up social media to ongoing social media support and the occasional boot up the backside when I need it.
    Highly-qualified Katie is an integral part of what makes branding happen and it's a privilege to have her be part of what I do on a daily basis.
