My work often begins with a phone call from a someone who needs to do something on the internet: anything that’s web-based rather than desktop- based.
I then focus on the problem in hand, and propose a range of solutions. My client can then make an informed decision and select the appropriate resolution. The process of identifying the client’s requirements and exploring the possibilities continues until the client is happy with a refined set of specifications based upon their chosen solution.
As far as the client’s concerned, that’s most of the difficult work done.
Based on the specification, I then design and create a solution - during this time the client is kept in the loop to ensure they are happy with what is being crafted! Depending on the complexity of the project, it may be implemented on our staging area or as a prototype to invite client reviews and feedback. This procedure continues until the client is ready to sign off the solution. At this point I deploy the solution along with any required training or marketing.

I create to your specifications
There is no magic to Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), nor is it inaccessible or an unachievable luxury. What you need for effective SEO is simple, honest, original content.
The web sites and web applications that I create integrate the SEO considerations from the design stages, which in turn make them more search engine friendly and optimised.
Additionally, I offer website visitor analysis to refine SEO.
Search engine optimisation is crucial to present your website or web application with better exposure and a chance to compete in the marketplace, regardless of whether you provide goods or offer a service.
SEO alone can’t give you what you want from your new website. SEO can only attract visitors to your site - it's your site that should keep them there for as long as possible.
If you are not attaining the expected returns from your site, Google Analytics can assist you in finding out visitors’ behaviour on your site.It is particularly important to see how visitors interact with your site: for example, whether or not they follow your intended path and where exactly they leave. You can also see if they follow it through to conversion and if they don't then the reasons why. More importantly, you can understand what can be done to change their behaviour to benefit you.
I am an experienced Google Analytics certified engineer and can help improve visitor engagement with your site.
