Hello! I’m Sarah.
WordPress Website Lover | Holistic Therapist | Business Owner
Sharing Simple Online Solutions with other ladies running their own business who aren’t good friends with technology
I create WordPress Websites using the Divi theme (which I absolutely love!) that will allow your business to grow. If you want to book appointments we can add in a diary system, if you want to sell your products and/or services we can add in an online shop. If you want to educate your ideal customers we can add in a blog. And then I teach you how to use them so you are in control (if you want to be, completely understand if you don’t and I can handle that side for you). I’ve been in the situation where you have a website but are unable to change anything without going back to the designer and paying again and again and its not nice, so I’m going to give you the option to learn – in simple steps – how to grow your website as you grow your business.
Let me introduce myself to you… I’m Sarah, a Welsh lady from Swansea, red wine and G& T drinker (not in the same glass mind!), dog lover and a cheese board fan! I have been in business for myself for over 20 years (I know I don’t look old enough – ahem!) in many different fields! I’ve designed and created Birthday and Wedding Cakes, Greetings Cards and Wedding Stationary.
I’ve built Websites, Email Lists and Databases. I’ve coached Business Owners to grow their businesses. I’m a qualified Holistic Therapist and for the last 15+ years I have helped thousands of clients with their physical, emotional pain and mindset. I love a bit of Law of Attraction and woo-woo stuff. I’m a bit of a IT geek , trained in Computer Studies and technology is my friend. So this website is about joining together this weird and wonderful mix of skills and knowledge I have picked up along the way and sharing it with other lady business owners just like you, so I can help you grow yourself and your business in a way that works for you! As the saying goes, why reinvent the wheel!
Many, many years ago I qualified with a BTEC in Computer Studies in my local college and from there went on to be a Computer Manager in a large solicitors practice in Swansea, which I loved. I even created them their own Client database system with mail merge facilities for all their correspondence, which one of the solicitors sold to other practices and I would go out and train them in it! Then I went onto be a software trainer, teaching other legal firms how to use packages like Word, Excel and Powerpoint so I have always been an IT lover.
Fast forward 10 yrs and with a life curve being thrown at me, I decided to train as a reflexologist and become self employed and that’s when I got to put my IT skills to use for myself. Creating my own business cards and leaflets, gift vouchers, I was in my element.
Having not created a website before, at the start of my self employed years, I remember paying a friend £50 to create me a website which was clunky, awful and didn’t do anything for my business at all, but I remember being so chuffed I was “online”. Next I paid £500 for a designer to create a website for me, which whilst looked better, I couldn’t understand well enough to amend anything or add to it, so every time I needed an amendment I had to go back to them, and of course had to pay for the privilege.
So then I decided to take the bull by the horns and teach myself how to make my very own website. With lots of sweat, tears and swear words, I did it! I created my very own wordpress website and I was super proud of myself. And since then as technology has improved at an amazing pace, I’ve realised how much I love creating websites.
At first I started out helping other therapists and friends by creating websites for them, and I kept getting the same feedback, “you should do this for a living”.
Another side curve threw me for a couple of years (isn’t life good at that!) but in 2019 after creating several websites in a row, I thought why not! I love it, I’m good at it and there’s a need for it, so here I am – Simple Online Solutions with Sarah offering websites to sole traders and small businesses who aren’t really friends with technology and who want someone to do the IT bit for them. If that’s you, then please do get in touch with me and I’d love to help. Just click the button below and we can get started xxx
Outstanding service, excellent attention to detail. I would highly recommend Sarah as she created a stunning website for me, exactly what I needed not just now but in the future and most importantly taught me the maintenance and updating techniques in easy step by step procedures. Thank you
