Of course you want a web developer with great technical skills. That’s the easy part.
But you also need someone who can design and write in a way that appeals to your audience. Someone with the training skills to teach you how to manage your website and give great support if anything goes wrong. And, if possible, someone who really understands the sector you work in so that your website can be tailored to your specific business needs.
Read on to find out more about my key areas of expertise.
education and young people
I’ve created successful websites for every age of young person from reception to adulthood, and for every ability level from ‘gifted and talented’ to moderate learning difficulties.
My key strengths are using the web to recruit new students and provide careers advice. My online prospectus and applications websites have been chosen as national best-practice examples, and I’ve delivered training in these areas to website managers across the country.
I’ve worked on university websites designed to:
- attract prospective students
- assist with career planning
- build alumni communities
- fundraise for research and student support
I have a unique perspective on university web design because I recently graduated as a mature student. So I understand the full modern-day student experience, from choosing courses through to becoming an alumnus.
I’ve been responsible for web design, marketing, and print design for a range of small businesses (including this one!). The clients I’ve worked with span the range from photographers to training providers to food businesses.
Most small business website projects need more than just a web designer. Often, the marketing basics like the business’s brand and tone of voice aren’t worked out yet, and they only come together while the website is being developed. So my marketing experience brings an extra dimension to the help I can give to your business.
