Adrian Hide is the owner of Adrian Hide Consultancy, a one-man driver risk management company, providing a huge range of solutions to businesses of all sizes and industries.
Adrian had already employed a graphic designer for the branding of his business when he approached me to build him a new website.
He had previously built one himself, but needed to take his professional status to the next level.
The brief was to work with the brand designer to produce a static site to communicate the services he was offering, and converting visitors into customers. I produced a mockup which was first approved and then built to his specifications. Content was included and after a few small amendments to site was completed within his budget and within a quick turnaround time, and Adrian was thrilled with the results.
After nearly a year of trading, Adrian saw a need to expand his offering to include downloadable templates and guidebooks for his clients. He asked for an e-commerce system to be installed, which would link to a protected portal which would only allow access to paying customers. The project was completed within a few short weeks with a slight change in the final product, after the brief had changed slightly from being a downloadable pack to a full portal library of resources for his clients. Adrian was happy with the results and will be pushing this arm of his business further in the months to come.
“As a new BNI member and attending my first Chapter meeting, I listened carefully to everyone’s 30 second weekly presentation, on this occasion, Amy Edwards stood out.
She said, ‘I help SME’s to go from a DIY website to a fully responsive website at an affordable price’. That’s me I thought, so, without hesitation I spoke with Amy after which we met to discuss my requirements.
I needed my website up and running in time for the Let’s Do Business Expo, giving her around six weeks to bring this project to fruition. No problem was the response! The following day I received a proposal, outlining exactly what would happen, when and at what cost, super-efficient and very professional.
Amy worked closely with Andrew Hope, who was designing my brand and Tamsin Parker who wrote my website content. When I saw the first draft of my website it was a real ‘wow’ moment. She clearly understood exactly what I wanted.
On numerous occasions I uttered those words to Amy, ‘can you just’ but, to her credit, every tweak was done immediately, what more could you ask for.
My website is up and running now and I’ve had lots of compliments, thank you Amy.
I have no hesitation in recommending Amy to anyone who needs their first professional website or have a website that is looking tired. She is a true professional, extremely easy to work with, highly efficient, very creative and above all, a thoroughly lovely person.”
