About Me

About Me

I am a dynamic digital specialist who started my career as a freelancer in 2009.

When I first started my business I used to only build websites. After gaining more experience I decided to learn above development, marketing and search engine optimisation. I put my knowledge to good use and completing my degree in computing science and built my own web hosting company called Ezee Hosting. My company now looks after over 2000 websites.

My Goal

My goal is to provide a great service and to essentially make your business more money.

I think because I run my own business separately from my freelance business I have an extra level of experience when providing consultancy. I know that you need a return for your investment and I understand how a business works. That's why I love getting to know your business and helping it grow.

About
What I Do

I provide a modern and up-to date website design experience to businesses across Scotland.

Step into the world of Darren Summers, a young and energetic web designer living around 30 minutes from Edinburgh & Glasgow. It is a strange world full of words like HTML, CMS, PHP and CSS stylesheets.

Web design all comes down to knowing what people think looks good and most importantly what people find easy to use. A website that makes a user work hard won't cut it.

Web Design

Web design is something I have provided for over 9 years. I have a process and I know that when I build a website it will perform well for your business.

Web Design Requirements

The first step is to tell me exactly what you want and if you are not sure then I can tell you exactly what you need. Once we have established this I can let you know the cost and how long it will take.

Business Identity

In order to build a website, your business needs an identity. I am not that keen on designing logos because it takes time and I do not include branding in my services. I know the best brand designers on the planet and can put you in touch with them.

About
I love building online stores

If you are looking to start or move to an online business then look no further.

When looking to build an eCommerce website there is an extra level of planning required. You need to make sure you have a merchant setup which I can help with. You need to make sure that photos of your products are top quality. You need to market your site going forward or you will not see any sales. These are just some of the main things to think of but the list is endless. Websites I have built have had over £1,000,000 worth of sales so you are in good hands.

Building an eCommerce Website

Building an online store requires
much more planning.

Image

01 Initial Requirements

We first make sure that we have all the elements required to build an eCommerce enabled website.

Image

02 Products & Design

Gather all products and talk about the initial functionality and design of the website.

03 Launch Shop

Launching an eCommerce site requires a bit more planning and testing so this stage can take longer than normal.

Server & Security

When you need custom development using speciality coding you may need to think about non-standard web hosting such as a virtual server or even a dedicated server setup. I can keep you on the right track.

Web Developer Process

A little more complex
than a regular website

01 End Goal

With any development, it is important to work out what you need to happen as an end result of whatever feature you require.

Image

02 Website Environment

Advanced functionalities will most likely use a more complex language or server-side scripting. It is important we are hosting in the correct place.

03 Testing

Custom development requires a lot of testing. It is amazing the amount of time this can take to get correct.
