thai touch website project

Thai Touch

Developed, maintaining and marketing a website with ecommerce and booking features.

They are a New Zealand massage company with fourteen staff with a rapidly growing client base and an average weekly turnover of £16,000. I have worked with them since their beginning 2012. They started at their home and are now in the process of opening a third studio.

We have implemented and online booking system and online store selling massage vouchers. It has changed a large part of their business as they now sell vouchers to people all over the world rather than only through their clinic. I also help them with their social media marketing, Google AdWords and analytics.

This project is ongoing as I am continually updating their online shop and assisting with their social media work. I spend an average of 10 hours a month with them on website updates and marketing.

St John’s Wood Pre-Prep

They are a North London school focusing from Nursery to Year Two.

I created two website systems. 1. A database where parents could create an account and update the information for their family. 2. A website for parents to register their child for the school.

Both were to make the admin side of child and family information easier and faster to work with. I arranged a beta tests and gathered feedback. I then implemented changes.
