Tell us about your entrepreneurial journey: from the start up to now

In 2009, I moved to the UK, speaking no English, and came to study at university. After much hard work and dedication, I almost got a degree. “Almost? What do you mean almost, why didn’t you get a degree?” is probably what you are thinking right now. See, the reason is because I didn’t attend my final exam due to the fact that I had already started my events business. I started running events in 2012 and formed the company in 2013. In the three years since, we have gone from having 1200 members to over 30,000 members become a part of the London Entrepreneurs Network (LEN).

As a consequence, maintaining a website can be a tall order for many companies who have neither the staff nor the budget to do it properly. Yet, going without one and missing out on the thriving online market is not an option. So, what are businesses to do?

7 Things To Do When Planning A Simpler Site.

We all want an effective website that makes the users lives easy right? Easy to understand and easy and obvious for the user to take the next steps to the conversion you want.

In reality, as business owners we never know what that one thing is we want the user to do.

We throw in all the services we offer, add jazzy over complex images, multiple fonts “Because they look nice” and then wonder why nothing’s happening on our site.
