Website & digital consultancy services that drive growth, on an Ad-hoc, project or retainer basis.
Digital consultancy is the first conrete step to recognising your online strengths and weaknesses and formulating a solid strategy for reaching, engaging and satisfying your customers. It is the precurser to a truly successful website design project that generates real return on investment.
Why use a digital consultant?
Perhaps you don’t have a required skill set on your team or you’re running over capacity. You could be up against a tight deadline and need help to hit the ground running. Perhaps you don’t have the knowledge, expertise, experience or time to carry out your own research to enable you to make the best decisions.
I carry out research that enables me to understand you, your business and your clients. I provide you with the data you need, in the format you need and suggestions and strategy on how to meet your goals.
You may want a new perspective or to avoid the internal bias of a team overly invested in a particular solution or outcome. Alternatively, you may want to use me to test your digital strategy and optimise your processes.
Using me as a consultant whether on demand, by quotation or on retainer means that you don’t have to employ staff or embark on costly, time-consuming training.
Be sure about who your customers are, how to reach them and help them achieve goals
Digital project management
Managing your web design project on your behalf with your choice of contractors, or those we recommend. We act as a managing intermediary who translates jargon into English.
Why use a project manager?
Perhaps you have already put a contract out to tender, got an in-house web designer or perhaps you have employed the services of a freelancer or agency.
Your company may not have an experienced digital project manager, have a staff member with in-depth web design knowledge or quite simply you may not have anyone with the time available to monitor your project and ensure it doesn’t run over budget or schedule.
During the site build process he went way beyond my expectations, making all sorts of creative contributions in the areas of user experience and site design. I owe him a massive thanks.
Paul Emmerson – CEO BEhereBEthere
As an expert third-party we speak the same language as you, your web designer or appointed freelancer or agency. We keep your schedule on budget, on time and ensure that you know what is going on while investing the minimum of time.
Digital Auditing & Online Strategy
Any company which has existed for more than a few years tends to accumulate digital assets. Staff come and go, marketing plans run and expire, products launch and retire.
Often social media accounts get left dormant, websites stop getting updated. The problem is public, your potential customers can often still find and stumble across these dormant sites and accounts.
Often dormant accounts are no longer in corporate style, give obsolete information or offers. The impact upon your business when these accounts are found by potential and existing customers is unseen, but very real. We help you find, audit and rationalise all your digital assets and provide a clear management strategy moving forward.
Thoroughly enjoyed working with Paul, he has done a wonderful job of creating our website. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an easy to work with professional who specializes in website design and development.
Gavin Cox – Briant Communications Ltd
Using a combination of information gathered from getting to know you and our discovery activities we put our digital detective hat on and hunt down any online assets, social media, website, blog accounts that may belong to you. You may be surprised at what we turn up.
Not convinced? Our first hour of working together is free.
You might have some uncertainly when looking for a new web consultant. It is totally understandable and that is why you can talk to me on the phone or via Skype for an hour for free in the first instance.
I recommend Paul particularly to those companies and institutions that require something more than just website design. Paul’s skill goes beyond that to offering a service which we have found invaluable in guiding our choices and achieving our aims.
