Web Design to Help You Achieve More Online

Websites that look great and do the work for you


Websites That Work

We’re firm believers in the idea that your website should be working for you – 24/7 around the clock. Your website needs to be designed with a purpose in mind, and it needs to be achieving that purpose, otherwise it’s a big waste of time, money and effort.

There’s no reason your website can’t be fulfilling the role of a staff member… whether it’s there to make sales or pass on valuable information to your clients, it’s important that your website is helping you grow your business.

Already Have A Website?

How’s it working for you? Is it achieving the purpose for which it was built? Are you getting the traffic or sales that you’d like?

Don’t Have A Website Yet?

you’ve come to the right place 👍 what does your website need to to? Bring in leads? Improve brand awareness? Attract more sales?


We’ll take a look at your website, at no cost, and give you some tips and feedback on how it can be improved to achieve its purpose. And if you don’t already have a website, we’ll help you (at no cost) determine the purpose your website needs to have, and give you some ideas on how your site should be built to achieve it.

Our approach: Creative thinking driven by results

Sounds great – but what does that mean?

It means your website will look good.

Now that may sound like a bit of a no-brainer, but you don’t have to spend much time on the internet to realise that not all websites are designed well.
It takes less than three seconds for a person to look at your website before they decide whether they’re going to stay there, so you can see why the design of your website is important.
First impressions count – and it’s likely that your website will be the first impression people get of your business.

It means your website will function well.

Visitors will easily be able to determine where to go on your website to get the information they want. Your contact details will be obvious, and there won’t be any confusing menu bars or navigation issues.
Your website will be mobile friendly and very easy to use. It won’t take an age to load and won’t bombard visitors with flashing banners, annoying ads and bulky images.

It means your website will work for you.

We firmly believe that a website should provide as much value, if not more, than a full-time staff member. Getting a good website up and running is an investment of time and money, and you need to be seeing a return on that investment for it to be worthwhile.
A website that looks good but can’t be found is as useless as having no website at all. If people aren’t able to contact you, purchase your products or find the information, there’s nothing stopping them from using your competitors.

We started our business 3 years ago and needed an immediate online presence. The team at Tailgunner got us live with a great website that we are so proud of in no time and we have experienced significant growth directly as a result of our website and the work that gets done behind the scenes.

We have grown from a one-man band to a team of 8 and I contribute that to the qualified leads that come through our website and marketing that Tailgunner does for us.

Our process

Thinking about upgrading your website? Or perhaps getting a new one?
Here’s a brief rundown of our process, so you know what to expect when working with us.

Free consultation

The first step is to get together and have a chat over a cup of coffee about what you want out of your website. We want to learn as much about you and your brand as we can, because only then can we create something that’s going to work well for you. We’ll also discuss the design and style you’re after for the site.
This also gives us an opportunity to learn what you want to achieve with the website, but also an understanding of what you’ve already got, and why it’s not working for you.
This consultation is free, and gives you an opportunity to decide if we’re the right fit for your online needs.

First report

We’ll go back to the office and prepare some information for you based on our initial discussion. The first thing we’ll do is come back to you with a quote for the job. If you’re happy, we’ll move forward mapping out the site structure, and developing a concept design for your feedback.


Once we’ve got a better understanding of the direction you’d like the site to take, we like to get things moving…
Depending on your requirements and budget we’ll develop and present a series of concept designs for you to critique, which will give us a better idea of the look you want for your site.
We can also get right down to building the site, by setting up a test version of our ideas on a test-server, so you (but no one else) can have a play with the site before it goes live.


The ball’s in your court with this one. To build something that’s going to achieve your goals and still look good, we need your feedback. Don’t be shy… give it to us straight! You’re investing time and money into a new website, so it needs to be something you’re 100% happy with.


After a reasonable amount of dialogue between us, we’ll have arrived at the end result – a website that’s awesome! Once we’ve dotted the i’s and cross the t’s, and you’ve given the OK, we’ll launch the website, and you’ll be on your way.


But it doesn’t stop there. We’re on hand to ensure your website continues to be an asset to your business. This can include working on the site to ensure high rankings in Google, preparing reports on traffic and page views, and keeping the site up-to-date with new content.

Thanks so much for working with us in creating our website.
We’ve really enjoyed working with you and we’re very happy with the result. Thanks again!
