A Thank you to Metalfrog


Kate Saunders | 17th March 2015

Ok I know as soon as you read the title you are thinking who on earth are Metalfrog.

Let me give you the history, I met Master Frog AKA Chris Wheeler back in 2014, at the ICC in Birmingham where we were attending our first #SBS winners event, #SBS (Small Business Sunday) which is where Theo Paphitis from Dragons Den fame chooses small business to promote, but that is a completely different blog for another day.

I had been thinking for a while that I needed to upgrade my website and quite honestly I haven’t a clue when it comes to all this technology stuff.  When I heard Chris speak at the #SBS event I was thinking that I could understand what he was saying.  After a while I plucked up the courage to speak to Chris, I have to admit he and his team quickly put me at ease and explained everything in words that I could understand,  I do think that the bribery of cakes helped with this too, he is rather partial to our flapjacks with courgette.

So I took the leap and signed contracts with Metalfrog, in no time at all I had our first design by the very talented Juan, a base line to start from, we made great leaps over the next three weeks.

Our website was then moved over to Tom, to be honest I knew that I wouldn’t be involved at the coding stage, so it was just sit back and wait.  Then one afternoon I received an email, your demo site is ready. I couldn’t have been more excited, now this is where I could get involved, and I am sorry Ben if some of my comments seem so random, but you were/are really dealing with a technophobe, but no matter how bizarre my questions were, Ben was always on the end of the email, and he just seemed to sort all my queries out and understand what I was asking.

So our wonderful website has been created by the equally wonderful team at Metalfrog www.metalfrog.co.uk I would recommend them whole heartedly.

Thanks Guys !!!
