Thanks for visiting my website :) Hi, i'm Gary, a Dad, Blogger, Ex-Electrician, Musician and Drupal Developer. Offering website Development, On-site SEO and domain management services for trades. I make it easy for trades people to have a professional online presence.

First and fore-mostly, I am an online marketer. Marketing and developing a website is always the first thing I think about before the design is looked at. I ONLY develop websites for trades people. In fact I have been doing this for over 11 years. I don't build websites then charge you extra for on-site SEO! I believe that your website should be built from the ground up using SEO techniques

I also have the added advantage that I have over 20 years experience in the construction industry, from being on the tools to wholesale supplies.

I build every site from the perspective of the user then based on this I follow on by implementing ethical SEO techniques. Only then do I look at the site design. Web design should always come secondary to web development.

Web development is long term, Web design is short lived

ONLY build websites for Trades people - I have only ever worked in the construction industry so combining my web marketing techniques and my industry knowledge I am well placed in being able to help you develop your website and online profile that works for both for your business and clients.

I am an advocate of open source, specifically Drupal, web development as well as SEO.

Here are a few examples of my work all built using Drupal open source CMS:

Definitive ElectricalKent Cleaning Solutions, Ceramics and Crafts and My Local Electrician to name a few.

You will find me around the web sharing and posting what interests me.
