How having a website has affected your business/objectives:
As a British owned company based in the south of France targeting an English speaking market, the greatest problem I faced was to become known to those seeking the services of a professional Résumé writer. Working within a small start-up budget, Doodlekit provided the perfect solution and the transition from 'invisible' to 'visible' was a particularly rapid and smooth running process. After sending out a press release to the leading London employment agencies that I work with, I was delighted to find that business more than tripled in the first month thanks to the website. Business is fast growing and in fact many of my Clients refer family members and colleagues which is the very best reference I could have.
Lessons learned and advice to others about building and operating their own website:
Having wasted much time trying without success to find a company who could build a reasonably priced website, I strongly advise small businesses to save themselves the expense. Doodlekit is definitely the way to go and offers so much more than just website building tools. The best tip I could give would be to plan out your website before making your business cards. Once you have chosen your color theme from Doodlekit's wide selection, you can then have some elegant business cards designed that compliment your website.
Comments about Doodlekit:
As a total novice in everything related to website building, it was very rewarding to find that I could build and manage my own site so easily. This said, I had a million and one questions and after opting for the upgrade, I could not be happier with the excellent personalized service provided. Dealing with the team at Doodlekit has been a most delightful experience from Day 1 and I am definitely here for the long haul!
