My name is Mike Collins. I have been working in the website industry since 1998. 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 as a Tank / Armoured Vehicle Mechanic. I served in Germany, England, Australia, Canada, Belgium and 3 years in N Ireland. I mainly worked 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 decided that the cold and dark of Scotland was not inspiring enough, so decided to move to Spain to continue my business. The fact that I am in Spain will have no consequence on my client base. I am still at the end of a telephone and email. The same way I have carried out my business since 2006.
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 Spain or written instruction so they can update and maintain their own sites.
