Below are a simple set of tools I use to get you up and running quickly. Tools, the approach and my involvement can be tuned to how you want to work and what ongoing support is required. Want to chat right now? Click on the chat icon below and lets get started.
Your Content management system
My content management system of choice is Squarespace. It's easy for you to use, it's quick to develop on, has lots of flexibility, a great selection of 3rd party apps and ready to deliver search optimised content.
It's quick and easy to get up and running, chances getting your content organised will take longer than putting the site together.
And of course the site will be mobile friendly.

Google comes to the party with a host of free tools to make your life a whole lot easier, better informed and more productive. When you get a website you'll also get:
- Search Console
- Tag Manager
- Data Studio
- AdWords credit ($100NZD)
- Business Listing
And once you're up and running it's up to you how much you want to get involved in learning more.
And the rest
Whether it's email marketing, social media, live chat, CRM there's bound to be a cheap and cheerful off the shelf tool just right for the job. No need to build the features important to you from scratch. And the good news is they all play nicely together, no more pain when it comes to integrating the tools you need.
Once you're website is up and running there are plenty of marketing options at hand I can assist with, whether it be email marketing templates, digital advertising, or getting social media right.
