A Shropshire web tech expert is giving up his time to make sure businesses hit by the coronavirus pandemic get the digital support they need to recover.
Shaun Carvill, managing director of Bridgnorth-based website agency Clickingmad, said Covid-19 had forced nearly all businesses to re-evaluate their use of digital technology and with many still looking at how best to adapt, he wanted to help by offering free one-to-one advice through a new programme called ‘Ask the Expert’.
Launching this month, the sessions aim to support businesses to evaluate the effectiveness of their current digital assets such as their website so that they can plan for improvements and drive growth.
Mr Carvill said, “With so many businesses forced to close their physical premises during the national lockdowns and the lack of opportunities to sell goods and services face to face across all sectors of industry, websites have fast become the number one asset for many businesses.
“Making sure they function effectively is therefore critical and that’s what these sessions are about. We’re offering businesses the opportunity to receive a free website review to help them identify how they can improve the effectiveness of their website in order to capitalise on inquiries.”
“Things like the download speed of images, whether websites are mobile friendly, and the ease of navigation can all make a difference to overall website performance.”
