Hello, I’m Mike Cottam… think of me as your go-to website expert.
I work with solopreneurs and small business owners who are passionate about harnessing the web to grow their business online, but are time and tech poor when it comes to running their website.
What I do and why I do it
I spend my days helping clients who have existing sites – taking care of back-ups, updates and editing their site content too.
On occasion, you’ll find me building new websites for clients, or creating elearning platforms that my clients use to create and sell online courses.
I love the web, I’ve been using it for twenty years+. The ability to connect with anyone anywhere excites me.
When it comes to building websites, I’ve been doing that for over ten years. Starting with simple HTML coded sites before discovering WordPress in 2010; I’ve never looked back since.
Kind words from my clients
Mike has worked on a number of sites for me. His work is excellent and is always completed within the timescales stated. I also like that Mike offers a number of alternative ideas, which are often better that the original concept. A complete professional.
Mike, the WordPress Whisperer, undertook a health check of my website, CherryEdits.com. Communication was clear. The turnaround time was impressive. And the recommendations were well pitched for my level of understanding.
I needed help working out how to make changes and updates to my website. Mike walked me through the key tasks I needed to understand and explained each one in easy-to-follow, non-techie language. He was very patient and couldn’t have been more helpful.
