Team Valley Web celebrates 10th anniversary

Gateshead based Team Valley Web, part of the Team Valley Group, is celebrating ten years of delivering online solutions to businesses across the North East. 

The brainchild of Director Andrew Auton and headed by Web Manager Helen Balmer, the web team has grown in both size and reputation, having designed and built over 700 custom websites since 2011.

Specialising in bespoke web builds, the team is renowned for producing a wide range of digital solutions, including brochure websites, fully customised e-commerce solutions, and user-friendly content-managed systems.

Andrew Auton said, “we are delighted to be celebrating a decade of delivering digital solutions across all sectors, enabling businesses of all sizes to succeed and grow. Over the years, we have become an integral part of many of the businesses we have worked with, which is a real testimony to the skill set of the web team”.

With an impressive back-catalogue including web builds for the iconic Spanish City, the well-known publication North East Times and industry-leading Shepherd Offshore, the web team is well-versed in working with clients to deliver fully-customised solutions with content management systems providing businesses with complete control over their site. 

Web Manager Helen Balmer said, “working closely with the client to build a picture of what they need is crucial to delivering a site they are happy with and meets their brief. From redesigns of existing sites to full API integration, we offer outcome-driven advice and support from the outset, which hopefully makes our clients lives that little easier and enables them to run their businesses while the build is underway”.

One stumbling block for many when it comes to new websites is the copywriting element. Many business owners simply don’t have the time, don’t know where to start, or feel overwhelmed by the task at hand. Team Valley Web has solved this problem by working in partnership with Team Valley Marketing, another part of the Team Valley Group, to offer copywriting solutions to those businesses needing help and support. 

Over the last year, the team has seen an unprecedented surge in web build enquiries and new work as the pandemic forced businesses to trade online to survive. Andrew continued, “our team’s specialist web knowledge came to the fore during the last year. The pandemic forced businesses to look at their web presence, with many realising that their website was outdated and no longer fit for purpose or requiring an e-commerce solution to enable trade to continue. It brought home for many businesses just how important an online presence has become in the digital era, a trend we are continuing to see as businesses look to compete in an online marketplace”.
