Kind words from happy clients…
I had managed to develop a holding website myself but it was limited and there was no option to optimise it for search engines. Whilst it was helpful to direct people I came across, no-one other than people I knew were going to find me and so when I had a number of clients and understood my brand better, I started looking for someone to help me develop a more professional on-line presence.
I didn’t have any reservations about seeking out support. I had worked with suppliers previously in my career. However, I needed to find someone who understood my business. Essentially, someone who had worked with big and small organisations but who now wanted to support a small businesses.
I feel proud to have a more professional presence and I have benefitted from people finding me on the web and then getting in contact. I see websites as the modern day ‘shop front’ and you want them to inspire confidence with your existing and future clients. I have received enquiries from people who have found me because of the work Kate did which has been great.
I loved working with Kate. She brought all the elements I needed together and then project managed the process in a friendly and professional way. She was really good at sign posting what needed to happen next and thinking around obstacles which often occur with website projects. She was always cheerful and upbeat and went to great lengths to make sure that I was happy with the final project. She also helped me understand the new features with training. I would wholeheartedly recommend Kate to anyone about to embark on building their own website. She makes it simple.

I certainly feel more confident about sharing my site. I think Kate has caught exactly what I was trying to achieve with it. Interestingly another company approached me and put something together after I’d had my new site up and running for a year and I absolutely hated what they produced. This shows for me the value of working with someone who takes the time to understand you and your business.
Things didn’t always go according to plan, but I always think that’s when you see the real character of the person you are working with. I found Kate to be honest, authentic. Generous with her knowledge and incredibly patient. She kept the project moving forward at the right pace and I am very happy to continue working with her as the need arises.

I’m a sole trader running an education consultancy working primarily with national and regional clients, and publishing a range of guides. I just don’t have time to do web-based work myself, so Kate’s support is invaluable.
Before I developed my website I felt that I was doing everything by phone and email – very inefficient and not a good way of broadcasting information.
I was recommended to Kate by a colleague, and once I’d seen Kate’s work, and spoken to her I had no hesitation – it felt as though I was in a safe pair of hands!
My website now gives me a professional and effective presence on the web, with plenty of positive feedback, and a significant number of new clients. I am too busy to do much myself, so Kate has crafted a bespoke ‘Done for You’ package that gives me just the right level of support.
Kate has been unfailingly helpful and always goes the extra mile to make sure that she is delivering exactly what I want, even when she has to research solutions to non-standard problems – she seems to enjoy the challenge!

My previous website was very simple and didn’t do more than provide basic information about upcoming workshops. I couldn’t make changes to the site myself, and there really was no possibility to rework the pages to look more interesting – include larger photos, etc. It was the most basic of basic…
My last website was created by a colleague for free. At that time, we were just starting out with our workshops and didn’t have the resources to hire a designer, and she was generous enough to offer to put it together, and it worked for those early years. I pulled together the information and did the writing. She did the IT part.
I found Kate through her website, and liked her simple, accessible approach. The language, in particular, echoed a tone that I wanted for my own website. It felt a bit of a stretch to move from a ‘free’ site and take the step of hiring Kate to create my new one, but once I met her, I knew that I’d get what I was hoping for. It’s not easy to get across the nature of the work I do, and she and her colleagues were so sensitive and aligned with my values.
The website is now generating a small but steady stream of inquiries about our workshops and about the breathwork. It has increased both the visibility and an understanding of our breathwork workshops, and I feel happy to refer people to the website as a resource, and as a reflection of the quality of our work.
Creating the website was a surprisingly deep ‘journey’ in and of itself. Working with Kate was fun, and also deeply thought provoking. She really wanted to know about my work, and the questions she asked helped me to rethink language, focus, and the way I was presenting what we do.
I would definitely recommend Kate’s service to people like me who are offering services, workshops, trainings, etc. of a non-traditional nature – healing / therapy / learning / spiritual – it was good to feel really understood.
I felt as though I met a real colleague when I began working with Kate. She was interested in my work, enthusiastic about the project, and encouraging when I was feeling a bit overwhelmed by it all. I’ve discovered that creating a website is a hugely personal endeavour – surpsingly emotional at times – it was a relief to be understood and not to have my feelings dismissed. And to feel well accompanied each step of the way.
