I’m Karl Thew, founder of Static Shift – An avid traveller with a Business Degree and a passion for helping businesses grow using the internet. Through Static Shift, I love to combine these passions by working on web projects for businesses in the travel & tourism industry.
Over the past 8+ years we’ve worked on more than 150 web projects for clients from every part of Australia, and as far as Canada and US.
During this time I’ve handpicked a team of internet geeks from around the globe – a small but potent team of web developers, web designers, SEO experts and copywriters, who are truly passionate about what we do.
At Static Shift we believe in integrity and trust. We thrive on our relationships with our clients. That all begins with being knowledgeable, approachable and transparent. We do what we say, when we say, and we do it well!
We only recommend something if we wholeheartedly believe that it will be good for your business. You don’t have to worry about us trying to sell you something that you won’t truly benefit from – Word-of-mouth is our greatest source of leads.
We speak human, not code! Ok, we’ll admit, we speak code too – but when we’re talking to you we understand you don’t want to hear us talk in jargon. We give it to you straight and make sure we’re all on the same page.
Ask any of our clients and they’ll tell you although we work extremely hard, we believe that taking things too serious limits our creativity. We believe in enjoying ourselves and working in an environment from which creativity can grow. It makes building relationships with our clients much easier too!
The information age has given businesses a huge opportunity for leverage – allowing smaller businesses to compete against the giants more than ever before.
At Static Shift we understand the internet and we know how to use the internet to build your business – whether you’re an online-only business or a bricks and mortar wanting to increase their reach!
If that sounds like what you’re looking for, let’s start building a relationship and grow together.
Working with Static Shift has been a great experience, through the research & development phase they really took on our business as a whole and looked to understand not only our customers, our company and our business goals but also a thorough insight into the niche industry we work in. Karl’s genuine interest in the detail translated through to the design and development and now we are loving the results. After launching our new website with Static Shift last year our organic search traffic is up 58% and enquiries 57%. This has resulted in increased profit and really improved our user experience as well as company growth overall. Karl knows his stuff online, and from a business perspective not only do we have more sales enquiries but the quality of our enquiries has improved as well. We continue to work with Static Shift on our SEO program and are really grateful for the partnership. They are responsive and professional and the fact that they offer web design and development with a whole business approach, is such a bonus.

Just want to thank you and your team sooo much again for all your hard work and support in building our online ticketing system. It’s so different for me not feeling stressed about ticketing issues this year and it’s so much easier for the customers to use, and us to manage, so you really have done an amazing job! Also for keeping up the communication, I really appreciate it!

We didn’t like sending people to a separate website to book our tours. The integration of the Rezdy booking system into our web design has been awesome!

Redeveloping our custom, responsive website has been a smooth, reliable and successful venture working with Karl at Static Shift. The communication from Karl and Karen was regular, detailed and clear. The resulting website meets all expectations. The website is running smoothly and much more efficiently than our previous design and is a lot easier on our server resources (which was a big problem with our level of traffic). Karl has a can do attitude, which means that all custom changes that we wanted were implemented to achieve the result we were looking for. We would definitely recommend using Static Shift.
