Last month (September 2021) marked 10 years of Neondragonfly Web Design. That's a whole decade of building and development websites and providing online services for small Canberra businesses. Starting out from a small bedroom office in September 2011, it was an idea I had after working and studying in I.T. that would enable me to combine my technical and creative abilities, so web design became the perfect fit for me, and starting out with just a hand full of clients I have never looked back.
As a sole trader it’s hard to believe what I have been able to accomplish, despite my larger competitors and some very steep learning curve constipation! I have positioned myself in the top 3 organic search results on Google for a few key search terms for many years now and have never dropped off page 1.
I will never forget my very first client to whom I am so very grateful, for placing so much trust in me and giving me the opportunity to show her what I could offer her in business website design. And the same could be said about most of my clients since then, I have enjoyed listening to my client’s stories, experiences and advice in business over the years.
I would not call myself an expert, why? because that suggests to me that I have learnt all I need to know about a given thing; done and dusted, but that is simply not the case with web design & development - It really only makes sense for me to continue focusing on improving my skills, learning more and finding better and more efficient ways to provide solutions to my clients – now and in the future.
