About Brighton WebTech
and the people behind it
On this page, you'll learn about Brighton WebTech, it's owner (Neil) and why choosing us for your next web design project, could be the best thing you could do. But, let's not get ahead of ourselves. Here's a bit of history.
Back in the early days, and we're talking late 90's, Neil ran a business providing IT services to small businesses. As part of the services offered, he also created websites for his clients. Things have moved on since then, including relocating to the south coast. Although never a full-time web designer, he's continued this service with a small client base. This enabled him to keep up-to-date with the changing standards of HTML, CSS, PHP and MySQL. Up until 2016, almost everything he's written, was done so using the Joomla CMS. However, since that time, the switch has been made to the WordPress CMS. This makes it easier for clients to have an active roll in their own sites, writing blog posts etc.
Sharing the risk
Neil has experiencing first hand, the business start-up process, and the effort and risks involved. As a direct result, he decided to come up with a way to mitigate the whole process. The result was his pay monthly plan whereby, the huge setup costs are a thing of the past. So, for a monthly fee, starting at £35 for the simplest sites, you can have your website up-and-running in no time. That doesn't mean that you can't pay the hundreds or thousands of pounds up-front if you want. However, if you want to limit your risk, or better manage your cash flow, this could be the plan for you. As you may have figured out, this plan is a risk for Brighton WebTech, but the belief is, that in sharing the risk with you (the client), a lasting professional relationship will result. It also means that we'll work even harder to make your website a success.
If you agree with this approach, we'd love to hear from you. Please don't hesitate to contact us with your plans or questions.
Neil's background, is engineering and IT, working in the automotive industry from many years, designing specialist automatic, computer controlled equipment to aid the assembly and test of car parts, mostly brakes and clutches. He also worked as a software engineer, involved with the "flappy paddle" type gearbox, allowing you to pretend to be a racing driver by changing gear from the steering wheel. As well as the aforementioned IT support business above, Neil has worked almost continuously in IT, often freelance. However, for the past 9 year, he's also worked as a full-time, commercial beekeeper, both for a commercial bee farm and his own beekeeping business. Although web design and beekeeping, doesn't seem like a natural fit, it keeps him happy.
