David Robertson – Marketing Strategist
I’ve been building websites ever since the early days of the internet when we all put spinning globes and web counters on our home pages – just because we could!
My first website was selling Spanish terracotta cookware that I bought in from Spain (surprisingly) by the truck load and wholesaled to over 150 retailers across the Northern England, North Wales and Southern Scotland. A really great business that I sold 5 years later.
When customers search for your services in Google, you want to be found on page 1 of the Search Engine Results Page (SERPS). Research tells us that he higher you are on this page, the more likely it is that people will click through to your website.
I work with a few trusted associates, but most of the work is created and delivered by me personally.
Blue Sky websites are clean, fast and effective and with a little Blue Sky thinking, will get you selling online quickly or make the phone ring. They will be owned by you and uploaded to your hosting, so your are fully independent.
