Online Start-ups and Major Web Development Projects
Turbo-Boost your Startup with Help from a Proven Partner
Freetimers has an enviable track record of online business startup successes, that we believe should give you confidence that you will not find a better web development partner to help you take your project forward to launch and a successful future.
One of the most important contributions we can make is that we don’t confine ourselves to just thinking about the design of your site and its subsequent marketing. In fact we take a business-centred view of your future website, and work with you as a sounding board, confidante, and knowledgable advisor on the business model, its organisation and the business processes behind the site that will enable it to seamlessly achieve its goals. What is certain is that a new online business is not just about pretty pictures and a logo, and the typical design agency really can’t contribute much beyond this. We’re very different!
Look at some examples of our startup successes.
Boomerang approached us with a startup idea for an online video game rental service in 2006. Initially we helped the client to determine what should be included in Phase 1 that would be sufficient to prove principle, but also within a budget the new business could afford. The business and the launch proved successful, and it won WebUser Magazine’s Best Website award in 2010. Now in 2019, 13 years on, Boomerang continues to grow and improve its service, with probably the most sophisticated online management system in the sector. We've completed at least 50 development phases and throughout the life of the business we have steered the website through a myriad of hosting solutions, now with a fully dedicated and PCI compliant AWS server cluster system with auto-fail-over and multiple automatic data and file backups. Freetimers also undertakes all the SEO for the site, which presently ranks No1 on Google for 250 of its most important search phrases against huge competition, previously including businesses with very deep pockets like LoveFilm/Amazon, Blockbuster and Tesco Direct. To find out more, see our Boomerang article in our Featured Sites portfolio.
Simply Education came to Freetimers as a start up idea in 2005, as a new recruitment business focusing entirely on the supply teaching market. The main USP was to be that the business would be highly efficient from the start, all driven by an online administration system Freetimers would create, and automating just about everything that could be automated. Freetimers designed and launched the initial site very successfully, and has worked with the client constantly throughout its lifetime. Freetimers has managed the hosting of the site to a dedicated solution, and the business now boasts over 70 staff using the system we created all day, every day. We also did all the site’s SEO (search engine optimisation) and undertook new complex web development work, every month. The business is now very successful, with a £multi-million turnover, and also at one point had attracted investment from James Caan of Dragons Den fame. To find out more, see our more detailed case study article.
These are just two of our successful start-ups of many, and we’d very much like to have a chance to help you with your startup idea. Contact Freetimers today on 01604-638421 and ensure your new venture has the best chance for success.
