we’ve been around
From the ancient code of COBOL and PASCAL in the 1980’s through to early experiments with HTML and Dreamweaver in the early days of the internet, the team have a deep knowledge of code and technology. This experience together with local corporate marketing skills and a history in the music industry give the Start team a melting pot of knowledge to draw on.
We know what it takes to make Australian business websites stand out and understand how to design web sites that work both locally, nationally and internationally. Individually our careers have taken us to the UK, Japan and America and we bring this international knowledge to everything we do whilst understanding what makes Perth and Australian businesses unique.
we’re here. now
Where many other agencies will outsource design and development work overseas we ensure a high level of quality control by managing everything in house. Our offices are in East Perth and we encourage clients to call in for a coffee or pick up the phone to talk with any of our team. We believe it’s important that the people you’re working with are local and available to talk when you need.
Web design is just one of the many hats we wear. Our Perth team work in a diverse range of areas from graphic design and radio advertising through to digital marketing and content creation. It’s our goal to bring together all aspects of a digital profile and brand to help tell a cohesive story across all media types. Our experience across corporate and creative disciplines allow us a unique and flexible approach to all digital work.
we love what we do
It’s cliche but we seriously love what we do. We’re loud and proud technology and design geeks. Whether we’re designing websites, improving Google ranking or mapping out marketing strategies we apply the same level of passion and enthusiasm. It’s our goal to help Australian businesses reach out and leverage the power of the internet to help them reach beyond the old ‘Yellow Pages’ model and grow their digital business.
flexible & effective
We consider ourselves a small, boutique business and, as such, we understand just how important every dollar is to your business. Whilst we’re certainly not a budget web company we do endeavour to demonstrate value in everything we do and will work with you to meet with your project budget wherever possible. Check out how we build our sites and how much a Start Digital website costs.
it’s your site from the start
Start Digital don’t do lock in contracts. We think this is an important differentiator. Unlike other agencies we believe your website belongs to you – after all, you’ve paid for it. Of course we provide support as and when you need and can provide Perth based SEO, Perth hosting and a wide range of Perth digital marketing services on an ‘as needs’ basis. And we’re only a phone call away.
make informed decisions
Data is everywhere and we believe that by studying and understanding the way in which people interact with your business we can help you make informed decisions and channel your marketing budget into areas that will get the very best return on your investment. We integrate all our sites with Google Analytics and use a range of other data tools to get the right information at the right time.
we know what time it is
Time is money and we do everything we can to set realistic project timeframes for all parties – and stick to them. We constantly communicate with our clients and provide updates as we progress to ensure projects are launched by the agreed launch date. Disclaimer – we were late to deliver a site once because their old database was corrupted. We rectified the old site, addressed every issue and delivered the project – on budget 🙂
best of breed tools
Technology is moving forward at a rapid rate and nowhere else is this more evident that on the internet. Last years buzz is this years has been so it’s important to keep on top of changes as and when they happen. As self confessed web geeks we spend too long monitoring trends, testing new ideas and pushing Googles search algorithm to ensure that we’re using the best, most robust tools before they’ve even been invented. Yep, we’re Marty McFly good.
