Website Design & Development

Your website is the vehicle for your online marketing strategy, so it’s vital for your website to be built according to standards while using the best software to produce results of the highest quality. Scorch has planned, designed, and developed hundreds of successful websites that suit different budgets, helping both small businesses and some of the most well-known brands in Australia. We work closely alongside our clients to ensure the end product is exactly what they envisioned. Our close partnerships with our clients have enabled us to provide cost effective website projects with stunning outcomes through good communication of ideas and close collaboration. The result? Our clients receive a website that is designed, developed, and tailored specifically to their requirements, a formula that results in satisfaction each and every time.

Planning & Strategy

Every website has goals—the common ones being lead generation, branding, sales support or eCommerce. Picking the right strategy for your business / organisation depends on your product / service, where you sit in the market and where you intend to drive your sales from. Through discussions, research and workshops, we can reveal the most appropriate web strategy and plan for you.

Design & Creative

It is important that your web creative matches your brand and makes a positive statement. A successful website needs to find a good balance between information provision and call to actions. At the same time, it should adhere to industry best practice and web compliance. Our dedicated web creative and design team will be able to guide you to make the right web design and creative choices that suit your business / organisation.


We are able to help you design and build your next eCommerce project, whether you are looking to start up a new eCommerce website or to improve on the current platform you are using. By understanding your target audience, we can help you create a webstore that engages your target audience and helps you convert on sales.

Mobile & Web Compliance

Make sure your website offers the same user experience across a number of browsers websites (both web and mobile). While most CMS platforms are flexible enough to cater for a variety of devices, it is important to plan your content to match the user experience you want to create. Given that there are different screen sizes and types of content that you might have, it is viable to offer a completely different user experience from mobile to web.

Integrated Approach

The aim of a well-integrated approach is planning where your website sits in your marketing strategies to help you maximise your campaign spend. Websites are also used to provide cost-efficient customer service. It is also the first place for your customers to know more about your promotions and campaigns and where they interact with your business. With clever planning, we can help you build an asset that supports all your brick and mortar and social marketing efforts as well as engaging first time visitors.

SEO & Traffic Services

Our specialist SEO services have helped businesses gain more targeted traffic to their websites. Moreover, we are able to help you manage your paid marketing promotions through Adwords, YouTube and Facebook. Our traffic specialists can help formulate campaigns that will help bring visitors in and engage them.

Information Architecture & User Experience

Structuring your website and presenting your content logically are crucial parts of ensuring web success. Clever structuring ensures that both users and search engines are able to find your content easily. It also presents a better user experience and better conversion rates. We can help you reduce duplication and prioritise content presentation through Information Architecture.

Conversion Rate Optimisation

The next steps after a website has been established are to generate traffic through branded and social efforts and to smoothen out the user interface to improve conversion rates. Improving conversion rates is a process of trial and error, split testing and a combination of both art and science. We can help you identify the key factors that drive your conversion rates and provide you with the processes & technology to improve on it. We can help isolate trouble points on your website and provide both statistical analysis and implementation to improve your conversion rates.
