Our Services

Web Design Byron BayWeb Design

Central to any website project is the design. Websites that look great make a good impression. Your web design is your advertisement to the world, and for many customers it’s the first thing they see, so first impressions count. The websites we build for our clients look great and are easy to use – for you and your visitors.

We know the importance of design for your website, and we know that budgets vary considerably. We cater to our client’s varied needs by providing a range of design solutions at different price ranges.

Designing effective websites requires experience to balance aesthetics with the technical requirements of cross-browser compatibility, page load times, easy site management, and the ability to grow with your business.


Are you ready to sell online? Or are you selling online and want better results … Selling online can increase your marketsize many times over, and help to buffer against fluctuating local market conditions.

To get the best from your online store you need to have solid E-commerce infrastructure – robust, secure, and easy to use. You need a system that keeps up with the rapidly evolving trends on the web and gives you full control over your store and products.


WooCommerce LogoWooCommerce powers more of the world’s ecommerce websites than any other platform. It’s flexible, secure, easy to use and looks great. It’s full of features and integrates seamlessly with the WordPress Content Management System.

We have extensive experience WooCommerce, offering you the highest levels of security, stability, and customisability. When it comes to selling online, you must have security, you must have the ability to manage your store, and you must be able to promote your products online through multiple media and networking channels. After all, if you don’t leverage the power of the web you’re not reaching your full sales potential.

We provide complete E-commerce solutions, including design, setup, analytics integration, store migration, and real time transaction processing with PayPal or other payment gateways.

Email Marketing

Email Marketing is the most cost-effective way to communicate with customers and promote your business. Communicate with clients in so many ways – newsletters, special offers, product maintenance tips, member notices, industry news, or whatever information your customers appreciate. We use some of the best Email Marketing software available giving you complete control over your email campaigns. Build trust with your subscribers and boost your bottom line by marketing the smart way.

Search Engine Optimisation

Search Engine Optimisation is the process of optimising your website to get a better response from search engines. Search engines use complex algorithms to analyse the billions of web pages on th e internet. If your site is not optimised you probably aren’t getting as much traffic as you should. We have Search Engine Optimisation professionals to help you get the best out of your website investment.

The infrastructure is highly reliable and our flexible plans make it easy to upgrade as your business grows.

Client Love

‘As an entrepreneur and International Speaker I wanted a website that represented me so I could share it with my clientele. Dom of Laughing Buddha Design was not only professional but also so accurate in making what I wanted. His fabulous service in planning, creating and executing the website has been first-rate. And of course the after care service continues which allows me to do my career. I highly recommend him and have done so with my clients. Thank you Dom.

‘Dom is professional, attentive and thorough in his service. Definitely recommend.’
Abigail O'Neill, Model Chocolate

“I highly recommend Laughing Buddha Design. Affordable and so easy to deal with. Made setting up my online store an absolute breeze.”

Laughing Buddha Design has been invaluable for our business – designing two websites for us over the years, and exceeding our expectations on each occasion. We cannot praise their service highly enough.

Stuart and Darren, Grey Gum Lodge Nimbin

We knew very little about the importance of redesigning our business website until we were introduced to Laughing Buddha. Dom developed a professional and modern looking site that we are extremely proud of. We can now easily log in to add and modify products for our webstore all on our own. Thanks to Laughing Buddha our old clunky site is a headache from the past.

David Macready, Creative Food Smokers
