Some answers to questions a sensible person might ask!

  • Do I need a domain name?
  • What content do i need to provide
  • what if i get stuck
  • But what about designing my site?
  • Where should I host my website?
  • How much will I need to do?
  • Do I need to know any coding?
  • Can you do it all for me?


You will need your own domain name (and somewhere to host your website). You can purchase your domain name from any reputable registrar - I use Namecheap but you can use anyone.

Depending on the domain you require - .com / .co.uk / .org etc etc, prices vary but expect to pay around £10 pa.

If you have any other questions just get in touch and I'll be very pleased to help.

Or, if you are ready to get started...

Extremely patient, fun and very professional...

I was introduced to Mark via work colleague and soon realised he was going to be a great person to work with whilst designing our website for Eceau. Initially we discussed the look I was trying to achieve and he gave me good advice as to what should be included and how to get certain messages across. He is extremely patient (needs to be with me!) fun and very professional. Nothing was too much trouble and with his help we have managed to create a fabulous looking website. After the website was completed he gave me a one to one tutorial on how to work on the back pages and assured me he will be there to assist me with any queries I have in the future - poor man! He provided an excellent service and I would thoroughly recommend him to any business.

An Enjoyable Voyage Of Discovery

Mark helped me set up a completely new website very quickly. I am very pleased with both the look and functionality. For one who is not very technical, I can honestly say that Mark made the whole process an enjoyable voyage of discovery. As well as being very knowledgeable about the technical aspects of web design, perhaps his greatest “value add” was his ability to help me get very clear about exactly how I wanted to use my website, both now and in the future.

I Want To Shout About What I Do

You are wonderful and have made a world of difference to the way I feel about my business! You are approachable and knowledgeable and put everything into "laymans talk" while at the same time not making me appear to be a dunce! My new website has made me proud of what I do - I no longer want to hide, but shout about what I do, and know that with this help, I will be successful! Thank you Mark!

Helped me translate a vision into a reality...

Mark has been transformational for mer-ka-bah - while his implementation of solutions has been faultless, for me his most valuable offering has been his understanding of business. He started our relationship by making sure he really understood my vision for my product so that he could find the right solution to meet my objectives, in the most cost effective way. He explained every consideration so I could make informed choices and continues to offer guidance and direction. As a sole entrepreneur it is wonderful to have that reflection, insight and guidance.

In short, he helped me translate a vision into a reality - providing invaluable council from his own experience as a business owner and someone who has worked in the corporate world. I feel he truly cares about every product he works on and company he works with. Thank you Mark, you honestly brought mer-ka-bah to life!

Mark has been, well, brilliant.

Mark has been, well, brilliant. His service has helped me no end. If you need support for all things website I would recommend you contact him! A big thank you going out to Mark for making building my website painless. Sarah

Antonina Biz Owner

A must have if you are a Solopreneur!

I am so grateful to have Mark helping me re-build my website which was pretty to look at but not user friendly in any way. After a couple outsourcing fiasco's I was losing hope in finding web support that is knowledgable, techy and is good in follow through. What I especially appreciate about Mark, is that he takes the time to understand what it is that his clients want and delivers information in way that doesn't want you to go lie down in the dark room. He talks to you not at you. Since starting work with Mark, I have a plan for moving forward and making progress towards web presence I can finally be proud of.

Everyone must have a Mark on their team!
