Extend Digital is an extension of the prominent IT business, EHW Tech.

EHW was founded locally in Mackay in 2006. It was founded by and is still owned today by Edward Woodwell. In 2018, EHW established Extend Digital to represent their growing digital media capabilities. Teaming up with a local designer, Ashleigh Lawson, the primary goal of Extend Digital is to create professional yet enjoyable digital media experiences. Ashleigh is deeply passionate about all forms of digital media and is dedicated to keeping up with the latest principles and trends.

Here at Extend Digital, we create high-quality designs of all kinds for a variety of clients. We provide everything you need to craft a strong digital presence with in-house hosting, domains, design, and marketing. We specialise in everything online including website design, search engine optimisation, and social media management/marketing. In addition, we have graphic design experts available for a range of graphic design options including logos, business cards, flyers, and brochures.

However, we strongly believe that simply having a website is not enough. For this reason, we are dedicated to utilising many forms of digital marketing including SEO, social media, and advertising. While often underestimated, digital marketing is pivotal for the modern business looking to forge authentic relationships with their customers. Many businesses don’t realise that social media is often a key driver of real-world sales conversions.

Our point of difference is our dedication to understanding our client’s needs. Extend Digital endeavors to personally meet with all clients to gain a comprehensive understanding of their specific personality and requirements. This ensures that each project is personally tailored to your business and your message.

Hey everyone, this is Ashleigh! I am the digital marketing lead here at Extend Digital. If you’ve ever been interested in working with us, there is a 99.9% chance that you have already met me, but here is some more info for those that haven’t.

I am the jack of all trades at Extend Digital, handling everything from website design to social media to graphic design. This also includes all client interaction, which might just be my favourite part of my role. I am a people person and I love getting the opportunity to help local business people through digital methods.

I taught myself to code at 15, and fell in love with digital quickly thereafter. I graduated CQUniversity with a Bachelor of Digital Media (Distinction) and immediately started with Extend Digital. I am currently (and basically always) pursuing further education.

I would love the opportunity to discuss digital with you. Contact me to schedule your appointment!
