I started building websites for community groups that were struggling to get a site made with the modest resources at their disposal. Having been involved in voluntary work all of my adult life I am acutely aware of the financial difficulties such organisations face.
I also appreciate that small businesses confront the same sort of challenges and I’ve tried to develop a range of services that provide a good quality web presence at a realistic price.
For many years I was employed at a senior level providing cultural and leisure services within the public sector. Since 2008 I have worked on a part-time basis in the third sector. This has enabled me to separately develop my own web design service. They now extend to the provision of support and site maintenance together with help for peripheral activity such as email and social media. I have been building websites in WordPress for over 10 years and in that time have seen it grow to become the globally dominant website framework.
Business and Community
For most of my adult life I have been a volunteer with a variety of community groups. I have worked as a parish clerk and have championed sporting activity at grass roots level. I have also been involved with small businesses and I am particularly keen to work with all of these sectors to provide new opportunities for digital engagement. I am happy to help those who want to get a website for the first time or want to understand what the web can do for them. I’ll keep things jargon free and would be delighted to talk to you about your ideas and plans. Have a look at my services page to get a better idea of the work I undertake. If what you want is not there just ask. I may be able to help or perhaps point you in the right direction. I live near Grantham in Lincolnshire but am able to provide my services almost anywhere.
Keeping Things Simple
My approach is to make websites that are simple and effective. With so much of traffic now flowing via mobile users it is more important than ever to make sure your content is displayed in a clear and concise fashion. By keeping things simple it also makes it easier to make changes to your site and to develop it in the future.
