Who am I?

Ashtral Media is a web design business run solely by Ashleigh James, a freelance web designer living in Melbourne, Australia.

What do I do?

I do what I love — designing and developing functional and beautiful websites, while discarding the high price tag other web design agencies charge.

If you're happy, I'm happy!

Web design and development is my passion — and as a client of Ashtral Media you will always receive something that I have put 100% into.

Web design has been a passion for most of my life.
I built my first website when I was 11 years old, and even though a page full of animated images doesn’t necessarily constitute as web design, I soon aspired to create bigger and better things.

Hello! My name is Ashleigh and I have..

  • Extensive experience creating online solutions for businesses and individuals across the globe.
  • Strong conceptual, layout and coding skills boosted by 10+ years working within the web industry.
  • Exceptionally well-organized work style managing multiple projects from conception to delivery.

Website Portfolio

Just a few of the many websites Ashleigh has worked on!

Having a website or graphics designed by a professional web designer doesn’t need to be difficult, or expensive.
Whether you are:-

  • A small business looking for your first website,
  • A large company looking to expand your existing online presence, OR
  • An individual seeking a professional to assist you with design or development work,

Ashtral Media can help!

Web Design

To stand out from the billions of websites already online, your website must:-

  • Be easy to navigate,
  • Be search engine friendly,
  • Get your message across, AND
  • Encourage visitors to complete a desired action.

Suffice to say, all websites designed by Ashtral Media are built to meet this criteria!

Search Engine Optimisation

The more visitors to your website, the more sales and/or enquiries you’ll receive.

Most customers use search engines to find websites. They type in keywords related to products and/or services and click onto the websites that display on the 1st page of results. Knowing this, doesn’t it make sense to optimise your website so that is ranks highly for the products and/or services that you offer?

Optimising a website allows us to influence search engines. I say influence because, whilst we ultimately have no control over Google, there are things that can be done to tell Google that a website is more relevant to a keyword than other websites and should therefore be ranked higher.

All websites developed by Ashtral Media are search engine optimised, which will allow your customers to find your site with greater ease!

Do you know how well your website is performing?

All websites designed by Ashtral Media include the setup of Google Analytics, a powerful tracking script that will enable you to understand just how hard, or how little, your website is working for you.

Upon implementation you will be able to track:-

  • How people find your website,
  • The time spent viewing each page,
  • Which pages are the most popular, AND
  • The percentage of visitors who complete your desired action.

Analytics setup is included in all web design packages offered by Ashtral Media.

However, if you already have an existing website and would like to start tracking it’s performance, just let me know!

Social Media

Social media is the perfect platform to interact with your customers and have them spread the word about your business, for free.

At the time of writing, there are more than 800 million active users of Facebook, with over half signing into the site on any given day. There are more than 100 million active users of Twitter, with over 1 billion tweets posted each week, and over 500 million people accessing YouTube, collectively watching around 2.9 billion hours of video clips in a one month period.

That is a lot of people that you potentially have access to, right?

If you have not yet considered social media as a way of promoting your products and/or services, whilst at the same time interacting with and supporting your customers, it has never been a better time to do so.
I’m more than happy to help!
