Avalon Marketing and Website Design Ltd. is proud to be a partner to our clients and help them to achieve their goals.

Avalon Marketing was formed in 2003 to provide marketing consultancy.  We undertook a wide variety of projects ranging from market research, measurement of consumer satisfaction and setting up a housing trust.  Some of our clients were remote from us geographically, but this proved to be no barrier in today’s modern world.

In 2016 Phil joined the business so that we could expand our offering to include website design and management using Karen’s knowledge of website design and Phil’s skills as a developer and Project Manager. This part of the business has grown rapidly and now constitutes the majority of our work.

We pride ourselves on our commitment to work with our clients in order to understand and refine their needs, and satisfy real requirements in a cost-effective manner.  Before we start work on any project, we agree a brief with our client so that we all know what we are aiming for, how much it will cost and when it will be delivered.

We employ sound statistical and data analysis techniques, supported by real-world experience as the basis for our work.  We offer full confidentiality in all our assignments across marketing tasks and website design.

We are different from other website designers in that we make sure that we understand our clients’ goals for their websites and make the sites easy to use and manage. We don’t just want to build you a website, we aim to build a website that your customers will love and enjoy using.

“Any darn fool can make something complex; it takes a genius to make something simple.”

We have a small team of sub-contractors that undertake work for us.  They have all been hand-picked by us for their skills and professionalism.  We also work with Open Sauce Systems Ltd, part of the Rosetta Group of companies.  By partnering with these two organisations, we are often able to offer lower than normal hosting costs. All our websites are backed-up on servers in Australia and the UK. 

We are a limited company and we guarantee our work through professional indemnity insurance for the services we provide.


I strive to create websites that the end-user will enjoy using, and will come back to again and again!
