Your brand is how your customers see your business. It’s shaped by the way you represent yourself – professionally, socially and visually. It’s what makes you unique. It’s what makes you desirable. It’s shorthand for everything that brings your business together.

ABOUT ME

I have over 23 years of experience in developing websites. It started with a website using HTML and Geocities account. I purchased magazines for Apple computers which included CDs with trial software and would explore each software for that trial period, then move onto another website creation software.

I’m very intuitive when it comes to technology and learned PHP and MYSQL databases in 2000 when I transitioned from writing website pages and themes by hand, to using a Content Management System (CMS). CMS is a combination of PHP files plus a database and a theme, plus scripts and plugins or extensions. It  is so much easier as you don’t have to update and upload each file when you make a change to a theme.

I did a lot of hand coding in PHP when I used PHP Nuke CMS and other software before moving on to Joomla CMS and now focusing on WordPress sites. I made this transition to WordPress mostly because of the plugins and themes, and also because my clients can update their website with an easy interface and a wealth of articles and videos to guide their way

I started using social media when Facebook came out in 2004, then an early adopter of Google+, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest. I LOVE social media and designing custom content and graphics for my own accounts plus my friends and clients.

If you don’t know anything about social media platforms – that’s ok! I can work one-on-one or in small groups and by the time the workshop or mentoring is over, you’ll be a social media whiz!

We’re full service which means we’ve got you covered on design and content right through to competitions, giveaways, sponsored posts and other digital marketing strategies. You’ll form a lasting relationship with us, collaboration is central to everything we do. We’ll push you out of your comfort zone from time-to-time, but this is where you’ll shine. Bottom line is we want you to succeed at raising the profile of your business, services and / or products.
