Here to Help

Having started my own small business I appreciate the problems that small business owners face. Apart from the business itself there are the accounts to consider, tax returns, VAT and cash flow. There is so much to do, it can be overwhelming.

You recognize the need to have a website but know very little about it. What you need is someone you can trust who can advise and guide you through the technical minefield.

This is where I hope I can help by trying to explain some of the things you need to do and to consider. At least then when you talk to a web designer or developer you know what questions to ask.

If you want to contact me about any of these topics then please feel free to do so.

Charles is exceedingly good at listening to what you want and taking your ideas on board

I came to Charles with a very basic idea, he turned this into an extremely well designed site. The site is not only very attractive and engaging in design but it is exceedingly user friendly. He also has ensured high Google ratings & great speeds.
