I can look after your entire web project from start to finish, or provide specific expert consultancy.
The right planning will allow you to maximise the impact of your budget. We start by working together to understand your business goals and your audience. This enables us to define what "success" means for your website, and to identify suitable methods to deliver it. This audience-focused approach to achieving business goals is essential.
The next step is to identify the technical approaches needed to best meet your business needs. Technology shouldn't force you to make compromises, but equally if you do have a constraint, such as an existing system to work with, I can help to minimise the impact of that constraint.
Projects need to be planned and monitored throughout. My experience includes PRINCE2 Registered Practitioner certification in 2005, but I now prefer Agile methodology, and believe it's the best way to run projects. This focuses on delivering demonstrable value throughout the project, while also allowing us to adapt in response to things learned once the project is under way.
I always recommend an Open Source approach. I want you to stay with me because I do great work, not because you have no other choice.
I've got particular expertise in Drupal, but have experience with other PHP-based content management systems such as Wordpress, Expression Engine, and Joomla! I can call on additional technical expertise if your project needs it.
I can bring in one of the talented designers with whom I regularly work. I'm also happy to work with your own.
I work with an expert hosting partner, to give you the peace of mind that your website is on a robust platform, with full backups, and 24/7 support.
With your new system in place, I'll make sure you know how to use it.
I also offer standalone training sessions on project management or technical processes as well as for the Drupal CMS (admin or development).
The launch of your new website is just the beginning. Whether it be enhancements to the website or the equally important security patching, I can look after your ongoing needs.
