My Company Information

Do You Have An Online & Offline Strategy?

Hi, I’m Barry Tolson and I’m unusual, in a web guy, in that I have run a £3 million+ distribution company and a £300K ecommerce business too. I know where to find the money in your business and turn that fancy web site into a money earner. I will also look at your Offline route to market and link that with your Online business presence to get your marketing working on both fronts.

So, together with the Online and Offline business knowledge I can deliver I also offer affordable websites and hosting around the Wordpress platform. Due to being involved in ecommerce and AdWords since 2002 I can bring a wealth of knowledge to bear on your web presence and therefore your earning potential.

My Starter Package is a one-page website for £95 (extra pages £50 per page) and then £25 per month. This includes Wordpress hosting (you can edit yourself) on a fast SSD server, SSL certificate and weekly backup, plugin/theme updates, security, spam elimination and Wordpress updates.
In addition, for existing successful entrepreneurs, there are ways to create membership sites, setup a shopping cart, create great sales landing pages, add SEO, add Analytics and CRM systems too, all be it at an extra cost.

You know how it is when you look at your Wordpress site and there are 19 plugin updates including Wordpress and you are afraid to do anything? Or maybe you have been hacked? I can solve this...

I offer a Wordpress maintenance service that gets the site updated and then keeps it so. Initially it is £50 (£100 if hacked) to get it updated and secure then £25 per month for a weekly backup, plugin/theme updates, security, spam elimination and Wordpress updates. If you want a daily backup, it’s £49 per month.

Perhaps now is the time to integrate your Online and Offline Marketing and make your website work for you?

Just give me a call on 07914 392047 for an initial chat.


Kind Regards Barry Tolson

Northern Manager

Steljes

September 1992 – January 1995 (2 years 5 months)

Steljes didn't have a Northern Operation when I joined them they were a small outfit at 333 Chiswick High Road above the timber merchants. They specialised in LCD panels that sat on an overhead projector (OHP) and showed your computer image, these were early days. I came to them because I had worked with some of the early adopters of this technology and seemed to know what I was doing.

I worked on a self employed basis until one day they got the UK distribution for InFocus LCD Panels. This changed everything and the business grew and grew. I brought the Liesegang distribution to Steljes so that we had high powered OHPs for our LCD Panels. By the January of 2004 the Northern Region's turnover equalled the South's. In August 2004, and after winning a massive contract with Barclays for rear projection for their X Windows training system, it was decided to integrate the region into the South and cut commissions, my position became untenable.

I had been offered the job of running Liesegang UK and at this point terminating the relationship became the only option.
