About West Legacy Group

We are a local website design, digital marketing and content writing agency based in country Victoria Australia.

History

We created West Legacy Group nearly 18 years ago when our first daughter was born. The decision and concept was and still is to create a lasting legacy for ourselves, our daughters, and their children to come.

WLG began as an idea and over the years we have planned and developed other businesses, hobbies, and the like that all fall under the WLG umbrella.

We began creating a small business services division. These services are aimed at helping small businesses and startups ups with their website content, tracking usage, web design and development, digital transformation, and affordable SEO.

All these small business services are available as single items or subscription packages and are built to be affordable for everyone.
