I am Robin Hislop, a freelance web developer based in Brighton, East Sussex with 20 years’ experience in web technologies. I build functional, beautiful web sites for SMEs that help them achieve their online goals.
Search engines will supply the majority of your web site traffic. Search engine optimisation should not be regarded as an afterthought, rather the whole site should be built with SEO in mind.
I supply a complete ecommerce platform to manage your inventory, take payments and track orders from sale to completion. I can help you integrate your existing Point of Sale system with your online inventory.
A CMS like WordPress and Drupal allows you to manage your site content yourself, without having to depend on external web developers. I provide the training, documentation and support for your staff.
My maintenance service keeps your site up to date the latest security updates and makes regular backups to the cloud. And you have the peace of mind of knowing I am on the end of the phone if you need me.
Whether you need to migrate content from a legacy system; publish data from a back-office database on your site or integrate your web inventory with your in-store POS system, I can help.
Got an interesting project?
I’m always happy to have a chat about your plans.
