About Freetime Webgroup

Mike Collins

My name is Mike Collins. I have been working in the website industry for the past 19 years. I have seen the web change from the use of HTML pages using flashy gif images as attention getter, to the sophisticated Content Management Systems that I employ today. The knowledge of SEO has built up over the years, so I can ignore many techniques that SEO experts suggest should be used. I use the adage “KISS” … Keep it Simple Stupid” The use of Open Source Software keeps my prices keen … and that is the main reason you should use Freetime Webgroup.

I started my working career at the tender age of 15 as an apprentice in the HM Forces … REME (Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers) to be precise.

I served in Germany, England, Australia, Canada, Belgium and 3 years in N Ireland as a tank mechanic, working on Chieftain and Challenger MBTs. I even worked on Centurion tanks with the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards. They had a target tank, 80 tons of metal and concrete which used to break down often. I finished my career in the Military after 21 years and 5 days (That is what my demob book said).

I moved to Scotland in 1991 and worked with the Fire Brigade as a mechanic for a year before Going to University of Abertay in Dundee. After 4 years of schooling, I achieved a 2:1 degree in Commerce..

I mainly use Popular Content Management Systems, such as WordPress, the award winning software and clients find this easy to use. I am happy to give clients instruction either here in Balmullo or at their place of work.
