  • DMark Concepts2011 - Present

    Business Website | News Section/Blog | Cloud Hosting | SEO | Email | Updates & Maintenance | Google Adwords

    This was my first Wordpress website and where I taught myself how to work with the AWS Cloud and Wordpress platform. DMark Concepts is a panelling, coachbuilding, custom parts and specialist metalwork company run by myself and my father Don. We wanted a website that not only told the world what we do but also to tell people about our history and a unique way to show off our extensive photo gallery online.

    • I've highly customised the theme.
    • Written all the website content.
    • Web standard compliant.
    • Implemented an extensive filterable photo gallery with albums and descriptions which is easily searchable.
    • Implemented and run a blog (News section).
    • Researched, installed and customised various plugins.
    • I've used the latest Google friendly microdata mark-up in my code.
    • Search engine optimized.
    • I've used Amazon's Cloudfront CDN for all media files for fast photo load times wherever you are in the world.
    • Used Amazon Route 53 for DMark Concept's DNS services.
    • I've implemented Google's Custom Search tool for our internal site search and their excellent Translation tool for on-the-fly website translation.
    • Server operating system updates.
    • Website, Wordpress and plugin updates and maintenance.
    • Automatic website back-ups.
    • Business email set up with addresses using the excellent Google Apps.
    • Set up and run DMark Concept's Google Adwords account. Keywords, Ads, Budget control etc.
    • Ongoing content admission and news section updates.
  • RTS Valeting2012

    Business Website | Cloud Hosting | Email | Updates & Maintenance

    RTS Valeting wanted a simple website that told people exactly what they did and how they could be contacted. It needed to show off their varying different services and valets and pricing structures using easily understood pricing tables and navigable site structure.

    • I've customised the theme.
    • Written all the website content.
    • Web standard compliant.
    • Implemented a simple photo gallery.
    • Researched, installed and customised various plugins incl. the pricing table.

    DMark Concepts | RTS Valeting

    During the spring of 2011 I began work on the DMark Concept website and taught myself how to use Amazon's powerful cloud infrastructure. After seeing my DMark site RTS Valeting asked me to build them a simple cost effective site for themselves.

  • Wessex Cycle Racing League2009 - 2011

    I developed and ran the Wessex Cycle Racing League organising over 40 cycling events and all its online activities using Entryweb's online event platform.
