About Me

Simon Pointer: Director

I am Simon Pointer - Owner Director

I learned to code when there really wasn't anyone around to teach you or help you. I had one of those huge thick books on HTML and had to work out what a web server was for myself.

I have been working on the web, and in online marketing and measuring for many years, and have developed a lot of digital experience that I hope may be useful to you.

In addition to my web development and online marketing, I have been a commercial trainer for over 17 years, so please check out my courses and key services. Have a look at my blog or "how-to" articles, where you might find a ready-made answer to your question.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you'd like to work with me or just need a sounding board - a call and some friendly advice will cost you nothing, and I will gladly discuss your needs at length or just give you a second opinion if that is what you need.
