I’m Martin Walsh, I am self-employed and I work across the beautiful county of North Yorkshire. Much of my work relates to Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and for many years I worked for Business Link York and North Yorkshire serving small to medium size businesses (SMEs) providing impartial ICT advice and support.
Right now we live in challenging economic times where expenditure on ICT needs to be undertaken in such a way as to meet identifiable needs, to deliver measurable benefits, and to be both manageable and scaleable. For many if not all SMEs, it is useful to determine how investment in ICT can reduce costs and add value to the products and services you offer.
For the home user, whilst expenditure on ICT may be made for very different reasons, the challenges of identify what to buy, where to buy it and when to buy it remain; as does the need for considering its ongoing management. A secure PC today is unlikely to be secure in six (6) week’s time if it isn’t managed appropriately. The good news is there are many excellent resources available free for home use, and some for business use too.
I am comfortable working with both SMEs and the home user, whether its addressing some of the questions and needs outlined above or delivering on web projects such as personal or business blogs, integrated e-commerce solutions or specific coding requirements. I have considerable experience of using WordPress and presently manage around two hundred WordPress sites – many of them fully fledged e-commerce sites promoting and retailing real tangible products – as well as those that offer digital downloads and online services.
In summary, this website is an opportunity for me to promote my services and a resource for those that visit it; whilst at the same time it’s an outlet for the occasional rants and raves that my work sometimes engenders … and if my spare time interests spill over into this website then just maybe that might blow off the dust and clear the cobwebs from what is, lets face it, a dry and boring subject for many!
