After 20 years or so in the IT industry, I am starting a new business so I can be my own boss, have more flexibility with working hours, avoid the daily commute, lower my carbon footprint and help my wife with home schooling our daughter!
I am a small business aiming to provide other small businesses with a quality service in web design and development. This will include providing functionality such as forms to emails, forms to databases, shopping carts, on-line surveys and so on. I will mainly be using open source Content Management Systems such as Joomla and Wordpress with free and commercial extensions as appropriate.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I want my services to appeal to small businesses who have no web site or perhaps have a simple static web site that needs a revamp.
My target audience often don't understand the technology or think that a web site will be too expensive for them to consider. They may also be unaware of the benefits.
