I’ve been designing websites since 2002, but this new site is only the third I have designed for my own business! I’d like to say that my sites were so future proof that they didn’t need replacing any sooner, but that might be stretching the truth a little. It is true that I have been busy enough with client work that I haven’t found enough time to devote to my own, a familiar story for many a tradesman I think. It’s also true that for me, like many of my clients, having a website, or doing any kind of promotion, is a necessary evil in order to help the business flourish. I am lucky that almost all of my work comes through word of mouth, and the website really isn’t there to attract lots more work. Instead it is a way for people to find me if they have already heard of me, and a way to find out a bit more about what I do; to find out more of what is involved; and to get to understand some of the jargon.
The site is a work in progress and I’ll be adding more over the coming weeks.
