Information Websites

Our in-house team of website designers, content specialists and marketing consultants will ensure you only need to deal with one friendly team for your new website.

We take websites seriously and so do your customers. That's why we make an effort to learn about your business, your target markets and your unique points of difference, so that your new website can set your business apart.  We will write your content and tailor the user experience, making your website easy to navigate, visually enticing and search engine optimised (SEO).

Websites are often the first point of contact for your customers, so it's important to immediately capture their attention.

We use the following key elements to make our websites effective: 

  • Custom Design - Our graphic designers will work with you to create the website you envision and design templates for internal pages to suit your business needs.
  • Mobile Responsive - We make websites which display beautifully on all mobile, tablet and all other screen sizes
  • Easy to use Content Management System (CMS) - Our websites are built using the Typo3 CMS, meaning you don't need to be a coding genius to update content, we even show you how.
  • Advanced Analytics - we set you up with your own Google Analytics account or modify your existing account to easily track the performance of your website.
  • Call to action - we design enticing call to action interactions (such as "request a quote", "book now" etc.) and use them in appropriate positions throughout your website to engage your customers and drive conversions.
  • Copy Writing - Website content is almost the most important part of the website, especially for your customers and Google. That's why we have dedicated content specialists to assist you in writing goal driving and keyword rich content that drives enquiries and is great for SEO.

At 1300 Web Pro, we have a whole team of specialists dedicated to creating you a website that not only looks great, but is easy to use and ranks well on Google.

Irish Club Hotel

The Challenge

‘The Irish’ is a longstanding icon in Toowoomba, known as one of the friendliest pubs in town to meet and have a drink and a bite with friends. The problem was that, while the locals knew to go there for a pint, they didn’t always know that the Irish offers so much more than meets the eye. The team wanted to increase awareness and enquiries for their functions business. Parties, weddings and corporate events are all catered for in the pub’s various function spaces and it was time to get the word out. What’s more, The Irish is home to a thriving gig scene, bringing a great range of bands to their stage, but needed a way to spread the word easily to music lovers in the city.

Why They Chose Us

Well, for starters, we’re always up for a Guinness! But, more than that, our combination of in-house specialists, including website designers, graphic designers and digital marketing gurus, could provide a ‘one stop shop’ for our favourite pub. We all put our collective heads together to come up with a website that did everything the Irish Club wanted, and more.

The Solution

Function Spaces

To start with, we put the Irish Club’s functions spaces front and centre on their new website. With prominent ‘Book Now’ buttons on the homepage, a dedicated ‘Function’ section which showcases each room and links to a separate page for each function space, it is now very easy for website visitors to book the perfect room for their event. We designed fun icons that summarise each room’s features, meaning less reading for the busy party planner and, what’s more, we put a link to the pub’s delicious function menu on each page. Venue, food, drinks….tick! Only thing left to do is send the invites!

Gig Guide

The Irish Club already had their social media marketing mastered with thousands of thirsty music lovers following their pages. What they needed was a way to link their Facebook posts directly to gig information to get the word out about individual events. So, we designed a special gig module to sit within their website. Now each gig has its own listing making it very shareable on social media and Google search engine friendly. Plus, we integrated the Irish Club’s Facebook page into a What’s On page so web visitors can easily see what’s on and when as well as connecting to the event through their own Facebook page.

The Outcome

The functions business at The Irish has snowballed. So much so that they had to employ a full-time events coordinator to manage it! That’s a lot of parties! Sharing gig info has become so much easier and more successful for the team and, as a welcome bonus, because we integrated the mouthwatering menu into the website instead of linking to a pdf as had been done in the past, the menu page has become one of the top visited pages on the website. Now, should we have a yummy pizza or the Beef and Guinness pie for lunch? Meet you at The Irish!

Prestige Pest Control

The Challenge

Based in the metropolitan suburbs of Brisbane, the new owners of 35-year-old business, Prestige Pest Control, had inherited a tired and out-of-date website. New kids on the block, they wanted to do some clever marketing to get their name and brand ‘out there’. Problem is, traditional marketing methods such as radio and TV ads are very expensive in downtown Brisvegas and out of the question for a small business like Prestige. They knew they had to tap into the powers of digital marketing….and that’s where we come in.

Why They Chose Us

Well, apart from the fact that we share a mutual disgust of cockroaches, we are also digital marketing experts with a team of copywriters, content creators and social media whizzes that, working with our in-house website designers, could make sure we created a website that helped Prestige top Google’s SEO rankings every single time. Let’s just say, we were super keen to help Prestige Pest Control in their quest to rid the world of creepy crawlies!

The Solution

 

The thing about pests is that they prefer to raise their ugly heads at specific times of year, meaning that Prestige Pest Control was likely to undertake seasonal promotion of their business – termites in summers, rats and mice in winter. Cockroaches all year round – yuck! 

With the company’s particular needs in mind, we designed a website that had unique landing pages, each representing their different services. High performing and modern landing pages with clear, ad-like banners, gave Prestige specific URLs to link to their Social Media and Google Adwords campaigns, meaning a higher Google quality score and better SEO results. The banners on the landing pages reflect the offer in the ad and, of course, contain a prominently positioned ‘Book Now’ button. There’s no messing about for the wannabe termite destroyer on this website….one click and Prestige Pest Control will be there to save the day! 

And, ok, we couldn’t help ourselves. Just for fun we added a ‘Spray the Bug’ game on the home page. Catch those nasty cockroaches if you can! But even if you can’t, you won’t forget this website. And of course, when it came to designing the perfect digital marketing campaign to get those click-throughs to the new website, we were the guys in the know too.

The Outcome

Prestige Pest Control have a brand new, modern and fit-for-purpose website with cleverly designed landing pages intended to optimise their digital marketing campaign. No longer do they have to spend thousands of dollars on expensive TV campaigns, their digital campaign, clicking through to their specialised, targeted and optimised website does the job for a fraction of the cost. Bye bye cockies!

Formidable Forklifts

The Challenge

If you want a new or second hand forklift, you shouldn’t fork around with anybody other than Formidable Forklifts! Based in Melbourne, the company uses a specialised database designed specifically for dealers of commercial vehicles, called Fastrack Dealer Net. The problem was that Formidable’s old website wasn’t integrating with or downloading from the database as well as it should, resulting in a messy and out-of-date site which was difficult for forklift buyers to navigate. What’s more, while Formidable sells its forklifts all over Australia, the website made it seem like they only operated in Victoria. Not so formidable!

Why They Chose Us

We are also formidable. Especially when it comes to web design and digital marketing. With experts in both sitting right here in the office, we knew we could design a formidable solution for the company.  Plus, we are experts in the database application that Formidable Forklift uses – Fastrack Dealer Net – because we were the ones that designed it in the first place. It was a match made in heaven.

The Solution

To start with we designed a new website for Formidable Forklifts that properly integrates to their database. Now, when you search for a forklift, the search results not only look good, they also pull up the appropriate information you’re likely to need as a discerning forklift buyer. Once you have found the forklift of your dreams you can easily get in touch to find out more or even arrange finance to buy it.

The next mission was to help Formidable Forklifts increase their market around Australia. To do this we created a landing page for each area they service including Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Darwin and Hobart. Doing this helped to show Google  and website visitors that Formidable Forklifts was not only formidable in Melbourne. We link Google Adwords to the specific landing page for the area we’re targeting and, voila, the search engine ranking skyrockets and people searching for a forklift in Brisbane are directed straight to our formidable friends. 

The Outcome

We worked hard with Formidable Forklifts to design a Google adwords campaign that would work spectacularly with the new website. Five months after the website launch the combination of the digital campaign and the easy-to-navigate website saw Formidable Forklifts have their best month ever and almost run out of forklifts to sell. Now that’s formidable!

Phil Currey - UQ School of Agriculture

The Challenge

Dr Phil Currey is a UQ academic who works with his team of super smart UQ students within his Agribusiness Research Group.  Dr Phil and his teams of wonder students work with agribusinesses to research opportunities which ultimately aim to increase profits, optimise strategic and competitive positions and empower employees. Go Dr Phil! He wanted a website that clearly explains what his group can do in an easy to read, accessible way, increasing awareness and interest in their services. Dr Phil is also a wizz on social media so he wanted to make sure his website would showcase his social media platforms in a way that would help people connect with him in real time.

Why They Chose Us

Dr Phil is a really really smart guy. And he knows other smart guys when he sees them. He loved that we had the smarts to make his wonder students’ work accessible and to help him spread the word of what they could do by tapping into his clever use of social media. ‘Cause we may not know much about selling beef to China, but we sure know an awful lot about digital marketing. We’re pretty smart that way.

The Solution

We designed a website that lays out Dr Phil’s information in a way that showcases his genius teams’ past research projects. We set it up so you can get the gist of each project pretty quickly through bullet points, but if you want to, you can easily read on to really understand the information students have gleaned through their brainy brains. Plus, we popped Dr Phil’s Facebook and Twitter feeds on the home page so you can see what he and his talented students have been up to in real time and connect with them through social media.

The Outcome

Smart people who need other smart people to find out stuff using smart research can find Dr Phil and his teams of smart researchers at a click of a button, easily see what smart stuff they’ve done before and connect with them in real time. Gosh that’s smart.

Content Management System


We develop our websites using the Typo3 content management system (CMS) which allows you to easily change the content, most images and links on your website. As part of our website package, we include a training session on how to use the back end of the website.

While on our Typo3 servers, we regularly complete updates to ensure your website funtionalities are always working as expected, meaning our CMS doesn't have the same security concerns that many of the "do it yourself" website platforms suffer from.
