I’m pretty capable when it comes to building websites. I’m literate with Html, CSS and PHP and I know WordPress inside-out. I’ve built many successful hotel websites that are still live. My particular skill is with the brochure site aspect, they were well designed and functional, but were not performance driven. With all my travel and being regularly out of internet I felt I couldn’t offer the support needed to push web design services by myself.
So I developed a relationship with UmiDigital in a creative / business development role with in the company. We have now successfully completed several projects together.
Now I have a team behind me this is proving a much more effective way of delivering professional, performance driven websites to my clients.
So here is the team, and a link to the UmiDigital Web site.
