Struggling to know where to start your website project?

What do you need to do yourself? How much is it going to cost?
Who do you need to hire to get it done?

There are so many questions, so many options and a lot of people trying to shoehorn you into their solution.

Who do you trust for advice? How many blogs do you have to read and videos do you have to watch to get a handle on this website thing? If you are going to build your website yourself, the answer is a lot.

Flexible Website Design Projects

For over 12 years we have been designing websites for all sorts of clients.

Local bus operators, engineering firms, supermarkets, NGO’s, not-for-profits, video-on-demand platforms (yes, two of these!), optometrists, restaurants, geologists, therapists, garden centres, schools, fitness instructors, business centres, builders, cake decorators, landscapers and the list goes on.

And every one of these businesses needed different levels of support to complete their website project.

This is why we offer flexible website design services to fit your requirements and budget.

We are flexible to your needs

Full-Service Website Development

To deliver a website that works for your business, we have to know your business’ customers and goals.

We work with you to develop an SEO analysis of your market, the messaging strategy needed to develop the copy, then design and build a fast, responsive, effective website for your business.

Template Websites

If you are early in your business life, we can help with the technical build and launch of the website with the content you provide.

Select your professional or portfolio template, the pages needed, and fill in the required content forms for us to build your website.

Combo Development

You may be a great copywriter but need an SEO strategy to write to before we build you a template website.

Or maybe your business needs a unique, custom website designed and built by us with the copy and photos you already have in place.

SEO Experts

Better ranking in Google = More visits to your website = More enquiries = More customers. It really is that simple.


When you are so passionate about what you do, you want every detail of your business to shine and show this. Never would I have thought my passion would be so visible through a website! But the team at First Reef made it happen and I am absolutely in love with it!

Their commitment and patience were clear from the beginning. They took the time to really understand what I do before they even asked what I wanted the website to look like and say.

I am confident the maintenance of my website is in safe hands for a very long time.

Thanks First Reef!

I am writing to provide a testimonial for the services that I received from First Reef Studio recently. I would not hesitate to recommend them for website support. I found them to be very professional and efficient. I really enjoyed that they communicated with me in a clear and simple way at each stage of the process that they were doing for my business.

They were very supportive and friendly and their services were priced very reasonably. I look forward to working with them again in the future.

The team at First Reef have been amazing when helping us develop our website. We were so impressed with the pricing, the quality of the final product, and their professional and friendly manner.

Nothing was too much trouble and they responded quickly to any requests and changes we had. We will definitely be using their services for the foreseeable future.

It has been a fantastic experience to work with First Reef on our website. Conrad and Michael have been so supportive of our larger goals for this website from the start and responded so positively to our complex requirements.

They worked with us in a very professional and responsive way to fine tune the project. The end result is an elegant, very functional website that we are excited to launch.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a website cost?

For a full-service website development project, we would need to quote. For a Template Build where you bring the content and we develop the technical, the price is $1,999 ex GST.

Do you design eCommerce sites?

Absolutely. We love the challenges and opportunities eCommerce websites present. We specialise in designing and building with WooCommerce and particularly enjoy the conversion optimisation design process with eCommerce websites. 

How much does SEO cost.

We offer fixed-rate SEO Sprints that run for a month at a time. No lock-in contracts, and no hidden costs so you can manage your budget and benchmark your costs against your ROI. Strategy, content and link acquisition are all dependent on the size of your website, how much content we are working on and how many links we work to gain for you so we do need to quote for each of these Sprints. 

Do I need SEO?

If you have invested in a website for your business and hope to have people visit this website – then yes. Once upon a time, it was enough to simply have a website, but now, everyone has a website. Google has to decide who it puts in pole position between you and your competitors and as SEO experts, we know what the factors Google uses to make these decisions.

Can you help me write my copy?

When you signup to work with us we will give you resources to understand the basics of writing for the web. This is not a replacement for a professional copywriter who has studied their craft but we can point a proficient writer in the right direction.

Can I just use free stock images for my website?

You can and many do but, you will lose an opportunity to connect with your visitors when they recognise the ‘store-bought’ product over the homemade goodness. It can work as a stop gap while you develop your own images but real images are best. 

Are you ready to be the proud owner of a shiny new professionally built website?

We are ready to chat to you and give you more information on what’s needed to build a succesful website – like the one you are on now!
