Not everyone is up to speed on the in’s and out’s of the web world. Many don’t use social media or stream content and getting to grips with the more simple tasks such as email can be somewhat of an uphill battle too. Dave Harrision is a self confessed ‘tech troubled older person’ who has a passion his business, operating his Wigan mini bus service.
Having been in business for a number of years Dave relied on traditional directories such as Thomson Local and Yellow Pages, alongside referrals from customers. Although he has enough regular business he wisely wanted to support this with some more work of the variety he relishes, trips and tours, golf days and airport transfers. Dave explained he was ‘terrible with a computer and I don’t understand the internet at all, but I know having a website will be useful’.
With this in mind and with a very small budget I set about developing his first website. Dave had made a number of notes on a piece of paper which I worked through to produce a website that he’s delighted with. All content and development was produced by WN6 and although the budget was tight, Dave received many additional extras that he was over joyed with.
Working with small independent local business is something I personally love, often budget is very small but the rewards all round are much greater.
