Self Employed Web Designer
Self-employed web designer. Business grew from a desk at home to full retail store in Rhyl. With 100’s of satisfied client I never needed to invest in advertising as my work and the word of mouth about the service I provided was enough to ensure constant client base.
This is where I developed most of my skills as I started with very basic technology’s and out of the box web design software’s and the more complicated the demand became I had to adapt and learn new technologies to provide the outstanding value and service that I offered.
This business was closed in line with my divorce from an ex-partner to relocate. The site remains open and I still help all my old clients in my spare time when they need it which does not take up much of my time at all.
