We don’t do ‘The usual’. This means, we don’t say ‘yes’ just to get your business, then try to work out how to do what you want, outsouice it – and charge you a fortune.
You can get that any of the horribly overpriced, glitzy branding or PR companies, who often don’t understand context, and how things need to work at functional level…but, for a price, they can sometimes be pretty good at looking glossy on the surface. The problem is, somewhere down the line, you realised you’ve signed off on a product that is simply not good enough, not finished or not agile enough to evolve with your organisation.
Or, you could develop a simple website yourself… just go to Fiverr to employ a freelancer, or Wix to build something yourself. Just be careful of the same kind of issue with functionality, futureproofing and contextual design….
That’s just not how we work….
Take a look below at some of the snapshots of some of the ‘usual journeys’. These are a simplification of what is almost always a complex matrix of variables that influence a web build – but – one or more of these may feel familiar…
Our approach is to understand where you are on your development journey, and apply our knowledge of your context to the build. This enables a faster, more intuitive process – with you having to do far less work, and far more moulding, shaping and tweaking.
We support you relationally and functionally at consultant level, and dovetail with your priorities and timescales.
At the core of our work, we enjoy helping people make great things happen, so if we can play a part in your achievements, then wer’e all happy!
The scenarios we’ve laid out here are some of the more common situations we find, although of course, things are rarely as simple as putting people in boxes in this way. There’s often a blend of variables, a mixture from each scenario (and a lot more!), but be assured that our aim is always to quickly get to the core of the challenge, and your way of working and approach with nuance, and a keen eye on your ability to stay efficient during the development process.
My view is that every conversation is useful and interesting when you’re passionate about something. I’m passionate about education and website technology and have been since the dawn of the commercial internet some 20 plus years ago when I built my first website – TeachPE.com. This included a suite of interactive Physical Education quizzes to support my GCSE PE students (using a now obsolete, but nostalgically brilliant programme called Hot Potatoes!).
The technology has changed – but the thirst for interactivity for learning and functionality to make stuff more efficient has always been there. We now just have the tech to make things faster, slicker, more interactive and better looking (sadly unlike me I’m told!).
So, I’m excited to be carrying on the legacy with WebHubs – an affordable, bespoke web technology and marketing consultancy that embraces modern technology with education knowledge, understanding and experience.
My view is that no conversation is ever a wasted for me to learn something or find something interesting! So, for a no pressure, ‘no slick sales talk’ chat, please get in touch 🙂
