Former award-winner coming back to ceremony
but this year as a sponsor
Former award-winner First 4 Websites will once again be attending the Northumberland Business Awards evening in November at Linden Hall. But this year it will be showing its support by sponsoring a category.
The company specialise in bespoke websites, corporate branding and provide social media training to companies throughout the North East. They are committed to providing innovative designs, effective search engine optimisation, but most importantly excellent customer care and long-standing business relationships with all of their clients.
First 4 Websites have felt the fantastic benefits since winning ‘Best Small Rural Business in Northumberland’ in 2013. The website design firm, based in Berwick upon Tweed, have expanded their business hugely since winning the award; taking on an extra 3 staff and 2 more local apprentices.
Sarah Williams, Director said, “We are passionate about providing the very best customer care with value added services and that’s what sets us apart. This includes, free monthly website changes and a website ‘facelift’ each year. This ‘facelift’ ensures that your website doesn’t become too dated. It is so important that both the front and back-end of a site remains current, which is why we even update the code your website is written in.
Our young and vibrant team work tirelessly towards our goals every day, making First 4 Websites a company that is proud to say we are here to help and work with your business.”
The firm says its success is down to having face-to-face meetings with clients to understand their needs and involve them at each and every stage of the project; this ensures that the end result is always a website to shout about.
One such client is Paxton House, which now has a new website – www.paxtonhouse.co.uk.
Launched in April it now includes the functionality to sell tickets and passes online. Businesses from all across the county will be recognised for their achievements at the ceremony, and First 4 Websites is looking forward to meeting some new and more well-known faces at November’s awards ceremony.
