I have worked in digital marketing and on websites since the early 2000s when websites were a new concept and dial up internet was still a thing.This Demanding Life was originally created as a blog site where I recorded my love of cooking and random thoughts. In late 2016 I made Web Design and Social Media consultancy my full time career. I searched for the right name and realised I loved This Demanding Life as it encompassed how so many of us feel about the busyness of our lives.

Which means that I get it. Really. Your time is valuable and whilst you want a great looking, well performing site, you don’t want to have to spend hours locked in a room with your web designer, perfecting it. I have a lot of experience in designing all types of websites, from schools and nurseries, estate agents, small businesses and unique blog sites. I work with a host of freelancers to ensure you have an amazing website and the journey is an enjoyable one. 

We were put in touch with Holly by our IT company as she was highly recommended. We have a small hard landscaping company and we were looking for an experienced web designer that could create the perfect website for us. Well what can we say. Holly was honest, knowledgeable, creative and patient from the very first meeting we had. We explained what we wanted and Holly took our vision and turned it into reality. Considering she knows nothing about our trade, that did not stop her creative mind coming up with new ideas and solutions to how we wanted our website to come across. Holly always explained what she was doing and why, which was great for us as our IT skills are almost non existent. We are absolutely over the moon on how our site has come out. Every little detail we wanted is on there, from the layout of picture sto our company colours. Once again, thank you Holly.”

WordPress is the number one website platform. It is always the right choice when building a new website:

Easy to navigate

Can be updated instantly

Complete flexibility giving you the site you want

Over a million plugins; your site grows with your business

If you have good computer skills, you should get on fine with it. The possibilities are limitless and rather than rebuild a site when your business grows, you can just add to it. Nothing is too much trouble – from membership websites to online stores, it will always be flexible and suit your needs.

Website reviews are a brilliant tool for analysing your existing website. Looking at where it’s performing well and where improvements can be made.

During the review we will discuss:

Your Call to Actions

The User Journey on your website

SEO opportunities 

Your Social feed integration

Whether your content is engaging your users

The review lasts 30 minutes and covers all areas of your website including link testing and checking your social feeds align with your brand design.

“I had a change of career and the website builder I had used previously was’t comfortable with the style of site I was after.
Holly was from the very first conversation completely on board with what I wanted and understood the visions I had for my company image. Holly has been informative, helpful and always kept in contact throughout the process.
I have learnt that when it comes to computer based layouts she knows exactly what is what. Her technical knowledge in relation to social media connectivity is reaching far beyond mine and I didn’t think I was that bad. 
I look forward to keep learning from Holly and engage more in the tools she eagerly provides all her clients with to reach out to a larger client base. I can’t recommend her enough!”
