Chris goes to STEMnet training

As a social enterprise, one of the ways we want to give back is through our new children’s Science and Coding Club – Atom Club.

Our Founder Chris is off to RNLI college this afternoon to meet with STEMnet, an organisation set up to encourage children into the STEM subjects and do his STEMnet training.

STEM stands for Science Technology Engineering and Maths – there is a real shortage of UK children going onto study these subjects. The UK used to be the leader in Scientific Research, but is currently ranked 20 worldwide and makes a minimal contribution to space exploration (our passion).

The Atom Club has already partnered with the national Code Club and is currently raising funds for it’s first community project – a mobile planetarium.

Advertising Space left in Marnhull Messenger

As some of you may already know, our MD Chris is the editor of our local magazine – the Marnhull Messenger.

This 32-36 page A4 magazine gets delivered to every home in the village of Marnhull, plus some people nearby too (1070 copies, plus email distribution). The printed publication is black & white, but a colour web version is available along with an app version next year.READ MORE

£75 Free Google Adwords

Need a little boost for your business this Christmas? Perhaps you have a sale, or are naturally quieter over the festive season.

No worries… as a member of the Google Partners programme and a qualified one at that, we can give you a promotional code that gives you £75 free to spend on Google Pay per click advertising.

Send us a quick email, give us a call, or fill in the form on our contact page and we’ll send you a unique code.

There are some T&Cs from Google however… You must spend £25 in the first month of being on adwords, but once you hit that threshold they’ll create your account with £75. It must be a new account created in the last 2 weeks.

Not sure how to use Adwords?

Our qualified Adwords Specialist can set-up and manage a campaign for you to make sure you get the most from your budget. Our commission rate for this service is 12% and as long as that is over £20 then there’s no set-up fee whatsoever!

Magento 2.0 Is Finally Here!

Magento is by far our favourite CMS when it comes to e-commerce. Sure, there’s a lot to be said for the simplicity of woocommerce, or shopify, but when you need enterprise quality e-commerce – Magento is the way to go. While you may hear complaints of how slow it is from customers, or how complicated it is from a developer new to the platform – if properly configured it can be quick, safe, secure and as flexible as you’ll ever need.READ MORE

Web Designer Vs Web Developer

Almost everywhere you look someone is talking about or calling themselves either a web designer or web developer.

Thanks to the growth of do-it-yourself services like Wix, 1&1 MyWebsite, GoDaddy and the like, and the availability of reasonably cheap web design/development software like Adobe Muse and SoftPress Freeway, you’d be forgiven for thinking that anybody could be a web designer or a web developer.READ MORE
