The North East’s newest website design company, Begin Digital, has launched this week with a goal to help small businesses represent themselves online with high quality yet affordable website solutions, allowing small businesses to grow in the online world and find new customers for a low, one-off cost.
Ryan Harland, 21, and Nick Skinner, 23, are the young entrepreneurs behind Begin Digital, with 7 years of accumulative experience in the website development industry under their belts.
The idea came after learning that when a small business, freelancer or sole trader requires a website, they can’t afford the price of a bespoke, custom built website, and the cheaper alternatives currently available, such as low cost ‘build your own’ websites, can be difficult, stressful and time consuming to create. Therefore, many small businesses in the North East are left without a website or any online presence at all, meaning that they’re likely to be missing out on customers and are potentially restricting the growth of their business.
That’s why Begin Digital have set out to find a solution to this problem to help small businesses build their dream website at an affordable price. For the low one-off price of just £499, you’ll now be able to build a high quality, mobile responsive website, customised to your business, simply by providing the relevant information about your company, choosing your favourite base website design from 8 modern, stylish options, and within just 10 working days your new customised website will be up and running. All Begin Digital websites are also SEO friendly, allowing small businesses to be found by new customers via Google.
Begin Digital co-founder, Ryan Harland, said: “We’re really passionate about helping small businesses get online for a low cost and represent themselves with a high quality website that will help them generate new business and ultimately grow. We’ve spoken to a lot of small business owners over the last few months who have struggled with the current low cost solutions available, so we really hope Begin Digital can help them find their feet in the online world, and find new customers in the process! We’ve launched Begin Digital with the aim of providing a simple, reliable and effective solution for small businesses that need a new website, and we’re both excited to have launched in the North East.”
Begin Digital aims to launch in early January 2017 and grow their company in the ever expanding creative sector of the North East, with plans to create up to 11 new jobs in the North East over the next 18 months.
