As some of you may know I am Managing Director of inLIFE Design, providing Web Design and Digital Marketing Solutions from our Staffordshire based office in Burntwood.
inLIFE Design was founded in 2009 by myself, previously I worked as in house web designer for a number of firms including Phones 4 u, Staffordshire University and VIBE audio. I loved my job at VIBE which involved creating the website from the ground up, including a facebook page which when we created it had 1 like and now has over 10,000. They were a great team of people and we got to visit all the car shows throughout the year and also have great works night out with the guys from MaxPower (now not existant) and FastCat magazine. Although as much as I enjoyed the job, it was always my long term ambition to form a Digital Marketing Agency that could provide the knowledge and skills of an in house as web designer to businesses at an affordable price. After leaving full time at VIBE we now still continue to design and develop for VIBE audio’s web presence today through inLIFE Design.
inLIFE Design first started off in a small attic office hired from a friend who had a shop front IT firm called TechCare. We soon expanded taking on a larger office downstairs and then when TechCare moved to larger premises we took on the building. This not only gave us more space for expansion but also gave us something no other web design or digital marketing agency in Staffordshire has.. a shop front!
We didn’t really need a shop front presence being business to business based and originally took it on for the space and as a great advertising location. As the inLIFE web design office is based at Swan Island in Burntwood, Staffordshire, a popular driving route from Lichfield to Cannock. We then found however that a number of local business were coming in through the door for web design and marketing solutions.
We hear from customers often that they can’t get hold of their web guy or that they have no idea where their website is hosted… the list goes on and on. The one thing we now find a web design shop front office gives inLIFE is a trust worthy and reliable presence, something distinctly lacking in web design companies in Staffordshire. Customers are confident they can come in and talk to us for good honest advise whenever they need it. If and when we move to larger premis in the future I am determined to keep this premiss, making our office an open and accessible place where customers can always visit.
From the start of the business I was joined by Chris Smith as full time web design & developer. At the time Chris had just come out of college struggling to find a job but is now a key part of the business and the plans I have for it’s future. We also have 2 part time additional employees and taking on another intern shortly.
