We provide essential services for many businesses so Freetimers is remaining open so we can continue to fully support our clients’ websites and businesses in this very difficult time, so we can all do our bit to support the British economy best we can. To comply with the UK Government’s advice and requirements for social distancing and hygiene we have re-organised our operations so all staff can operate remotely and work from home.
With the current “lock-down” and home working, the importance of online business and ecommerce appears to be increasing during this crisis, particularly for clients using our SEO and digital marketing services. If you are not yet a customer, but would like to be, please get in touch using our contact form.
