A little about us ...
We are a husband and wife team offering a personal, friendly and down-to-earth service to help you untangle the web for your business.
Mel is originally from Christchurch and Colin is a little further from his home in Ayrshire, Scotland. We moved to Lawrence in Otago in 2015 looking for a change in lifestyle and have been immersing ourselves in the beauty of the region and all it has to offer ever since.
Colin has worked in the ICT industry since the 1980s, and has gained a broad range of expertise and qualifications in telecoms and network engineering, website and software development, database design and technical support. He also lectured in ICT at various colleges throughout Scotland for 10 years. Colin now mainly develops web-based software for corporate clients but is happy to help with any more complex online requirements, such as e-commerce or email.
Mel has 30+ years experience both in New Zealand and the UK in office and publishing management roles. Whilst Colin's skills and experience relate more to custom web development, Mel produces websites through a template system and is the go-to for small businesses wishing to create a simple, affordable but professional website which works. Mel also provides a copy writing and photography service and uses her proofreading/editing skills gained in previous publishing roles to ensure that all material is polished and accurate.
We have a good head for small business from start-up and legal requirements through to marketing and social media. We love sharing our knowledge and expertise to help local businesses in Otago be successful in a competitive digital world.
