At Hello Web we punch well above our weight. We don’t use external contractors to do our work for me instead, everything that we do on your website is done by me and that’s where the buck stops. I may from time to time use outsourcing for blogs to build links, or I work with a photographer to take great images for your website.
My role is to take the lead with your online presence. That starts with researching your market, your competitors and finding the right message, keywords, design and layout of your website. Whether you already have a website or want to build a new one, the process is similar. The best results are achieved where I become a part of your marketing team, to guide and to implement what is decided on. I work within your budget and timeframe.
How Hello Web started
I was around when “Alta Vista” was the search engine, “WordPerfect” was our word processor, “Novell” was the networking system and “Google” was just a very very big number. The one constant thing in this discipline was that there was always change. That continues to be the case and that’s what excites me.
For 20 years I owned the IT company Base10 and was a co-owner of the web design company Netactive. Every day I felt a tinge of envy towards my staff. They were the creative ones, the ones that built things the ones that actually made all the difference. When I sold my IT business in 2015, I made the decision to be the person that does the hand’s on work.
Through owning a successful IT Company (in its time the longest standing IT company in Auckland), I have learned a lot about how small to medium business works in New Zealand and what is important to small business owners. Most of all, I appreciate that the business website and online marketing are areas that frequently distract from the actual business and require the type of leadership that I can offer.
I'm passionate about getting things done and have kept up to date with the ever-changing technology. I have not stopped learning and I enjoy every day.
