Covid-19 Update

This is an incredibly anxious time for every small business as high street footfall tails off, leisure and retail close, and the country enters a period of indeterminate restricted activity.

Many businesses are seeking to pivot to offer their goods and services online and we’d like to help in any way we can. One thing we can do immediately is to offer free sessions with small businesses looking to maximise their exposure online – we’re running these in the evenings as we know everyone is busy during the day – if you’re interested please contact us in the first instance.

We’re also aiming to make getting your business online as quick and affordable an option as possible. We are Shopify Partners and we’re able to get your online shop up and running within a couple of days. We can work with you to help spread the cost.
