Of course you do, we all do, but it is hard, right? You are bombarded by offers, lots of technical jargon and features you don't fully understand. Everyone telling you that you must make sure XYZ is included. Last thing you want is to have to start all over when you discover things didn't go to plan. Don't be fooled when comparing quotes, you are not comparing like with like. Websites vary considerably in quality
So you have decided to invest in a website, good decision, usually!. What do I mean by that? well sometimes your budget can be best put to use not only on the design of the website but also in it's marketing. If you do decide to go for a website make sure it is doing exactly what you need it to do. We can talk about your web strategy and how best to make use of your budget

Or would you prefer an experienced, professional local partner who can meet you face to face and see your project through personally from beginning to end?
If you are reading this then you have made the decision to get your first website or perhaps come to the realisation that you need a better website. The end is in sight, just one more decision to make...let me help you!
“Professional, goes the extra mile, the perfect choice for our business. I tried a number of other 'web guys' before I eventually decided to give Dave a try. My business really needed a boost and I felt it was time to make the most of the internet. At first I was a wee bit nervous because his prices were higher than the others but it didn't take long for me to realise why! Dave's experience and knowledge of web design and marketing has given me real '2 for 1 value' as he ties it all together and sees the bigger picture. Every penny invested was worth it and 2 weeks from launch we are already getting hot leads for our business that are converting into paying customers. Money very well spent!! Would I recommend Dave to others? Do bears s$*£ in the woods!”Geoff Hall / Owner / GHInteriors
“Dave went the extra mile to explain what and why. I found him to be straight talking, informative, honest, transparent on costings throughout the project and extremely flexibile with his schedule to accomodate my requirements. All in all Dave delivered a product that not only impressed visually but also functions properly”Rory Gallagher / Owner / The Big Immunity Company
“I had an outdated website which was no longer fit for purpose and was ranking very low in search engines. So I approached Dave Harrison who then redesigned my website and organised SEO as well as Facebook and a Google Marketing campaign. I am very impressed with the modern and very sleek look of the website and the marketing campaign has been generating a lot of new custom. Dave’s commitment to his client’s needs and the quality of the service he delivers is outstanding and I have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone.”Helen Magill / Owner / Officewizz

“Here at Ballymena Nursery School we decided to give our website a much needed update at the beginning of 2016 and Dave was able to give us exactly what we wanted. Dave set realistic goals and was reliable in delivering them for us. Our website is now modern, easily accessible and represents our Nursery how we want others to view it. The website has received many compliments from our current parents and has generated new interest - we appreciate all the hard work that goes into making our website what it is.”Jacqueline Coulter / Prinicpal / Ballymena Nursery

“I have only been working with Dave since January this year 2015; so 4 months. I have found him very easy to work with and I trust him totally with my project. I dont think it's an easy project but Dave has "grasped" totally what I want immediately and has already shown me results in producing real live leads. We are still growing together and getting to know each other but I feel calm with Dave working on my behalf. I have been in business for nearly 30 years and I don't suffer fools gladly and I expect value in my investments. Dave has been a terrific find for me and I sincerely hope we will work together in an ongoing capacity for the future.”William Ferguson / Director / Flexible Finance Ltd

We will use Dave again!”Rosalind Lowry / Arts & Events Development Officer / Ballymena Borough Council
“Fantastic web professional and our valued web partner. In today's on line world just knowing what is in, what is going to be the next big thing , what's going to be on your laptop, your tablet device, your smart phone and your wrist!, it's a mine field. Its like looking at a bullet train and thinking how do you get on? Well for us the solution was working with Dave Harrison, We spoke to Dave after getting a recommendation from Sue Spencer. Dave not only designed and built our web site, but his advice and direction throughout the project where invaluable and his continued support/mentoring and integrated marketing expertise have added value well beyond our expectations. We are gradually incorporating all the internet has to offer into our business and are finally able to really engage with our customers."”Ulick O'Donnell / Owner / The Back Shed & Cova Inn

Dave provided not only eye-catching, easy to use website design and cutting edge front-end development of the website itself but a multitude of business and marketing advice all wrapped into one and implemented seamlessly onto the overall solution. Dave also provided us with a new corporate identity and all at a very reasonable rate considering the quality. We were so impressed that we used Dave for a second project that was equally as successful as the first.

“Dave has designed a logo for my start-up business involving selling and marketing my mini hampers under the name of “Hampers by Sadie B” and he has been most thorough and extremely patient with me as we discussed, at length, the requirements and ideas I had in mind. I am very pleased with the logo he has produced. He has worked within my budget and there have been no hidden costs as he takes great care to inform you if you are straying into a higher spend!!I have appreciated his honesty and have developed a good working relationship with him and hope to continue this with possible development of a website etc. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Dave Harrison”Helen Martin / Owner / Hampers by Sadie B
“Most importantly Dave listened to what we wanted and his expert knowledge of web design, and social media gave us confidence to entrust the project to him. He also brought a fresh perspective to the project, a new set of eyes if you will, something we badly needed. He updated our Facebook page, giving it a modern look. He advised on how best to use Twitter and how to build on our followers to turn them into potential guests. Our existing website had no video and Dave agreed to do one of the cottages with a different angle (excuse the pun). He captured the atmosphere of an early Autumn morning wonderfully, not just around the cottages but at the Kilkeel river which our guests have access to. When this was added to our web site and Facebook it created great interest”Lily Annet / Manager / Hanna's Close Holiday Cottages
“I have known Dave Harrison for more than a decade and found him to be expert at his craft, a great guy to work with and someone who puts the customer first.”Fred Johnston / Development Manager / Outwit
