I’m here to keep your website safe and secure
I Help With Many Website Services
We’re privileged to live in a time when the internet makes it possible for anyone to run a successful digital business from home.
My passion is for bringing websites to life and for helping their owners make the web work for them.
My dad was a mechanic and I guess I inherited his ability to fix things. Cars were his forte and now computers are mine. The truth is though I’ve been interested in repairing things since long before the internet was a thing. Before I got into web design and network security, I was a hospice counselor for over 20 years. Back then, my specialty lay in restoring people to full health, and today I do something similar for people’s computer networks and websites.
It was in the early 2000s, while working as a coordinator for a bereavement foundation, that I began to appreciate the value of the internet to organizations. I made my first foray into web design, giving the foundation’s website a much-needed makeover, and I was hooked. From then on, I dabbled in web design and IT everywhere I worked, and by 2009 I was ready to go it alone and launch my own business, Scott’s Web Shop. I’d been studying CSS and PHP for a while by this stage and was also conversant with platforms such as WordPress and Joomla.
Over the years, my skill set has grown in line with my client base as I’ve sought out new aptitudes. My thirst for knowledge is an all-consuming one that’s seen me learn the fundamentals of social media and SEO in addition to becoming familiar with design tools such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign as well as teaching myself videography. I’m comfortable with using a wide array of tools, platforms, and technologies to help small businesses thrive on the web.
Whether it’s making sure your site is visible on Google or shoring up its security to prevent unauthorized access, I provide a complete range of web services. No two clients are the same, so while one might leave me to design, build and update their entire website, another will request tuition in updating page content or plugins. When it comes to IT, I exhibit the same patience and understanding that characterized my career as a counselor. I appreciate that everyone has their own ability level and way of working, and I do my utmost to accommodate that.
My passion is for bringing websites to life and for helping their owners make the web work for them. We’re privileged to live in a time when the internet makes it possible for anyone to run a successful digital business from home. Whether you’re a sole trader or a small company looking to take your website to the next level, get in touch. I’d love to hear from you and to get a feel for what I can do to help.
“Very tech savvy! Was the architect behind helptherapist.com. Always very diligent in finishing website projects. Because of Scott H.E.L.P. was able to build a website. The result was a substantial increase in business and many increased efficiencies. What we liked about him most were his creative website ideas and his continuous tech support.”
“..both Denise and I appreciate you immensely!! You always find a way to keep the quality at a reasonable price. Thank you soooo much Scott!”
“In my job, I am moving fast and dealing multiple issues simultaneously. It is a great relief for me knowing that Scott is monitoring our website and keeps it operating smoothly and efficiently. I never need to deal with technology issues as he always has it covered.
I highly recommend ‘Scott’s Web Shop’ to anyone seeking this type of service.”
