What does a Digital Consultant do?

I make things happpen. Most of the time, I'd like to think those "things" are good things!

I have a wide variety of experience with management systems, and workflow processes that put me in a unique position to assist businesses looking to imrove their current processes, or upgrade to a more efficient digitised workflow. Sometimes that experience might result in utilising a current platform more effectively, and sometimes that experience leads to a complete redesign and package a custom designed system. Getting from point A to point B requires exceptional communication and collaboration.

I've been in the position of operations manager needing to improve my systems, so I have a deep personal connection with those wanting to improve, and completely understand the positive impacts those systems can have, as well as the downfalls/costs/time wasting of ineffective solutions.

If you're thinking "there's got to be a better way to do this!", there is, and its my job to help you get there.

Have you found yourself in a digital quandary? I may have the solution...

Scope

What do you want to achieve?

Have a clear idea of what you would first like to achieve with an online presence. Do you just want to be able to communicate your opening hours, your contact information and what products or sevices are available at your place of work? Or do you want to set up an online shop so you can have online transactions with your customers purchasing items without ever setting foot in the door? Do you want to have an online community following you, do you have information to share with an online community in a blog or video series?

Identifying what you want to achieve is the first step in your digital plan.

How are you going to achieve this?

Web, social, mobile, there are so many options for getting your information to your potential customers. Within each of these platforms there are even more options.

Take online webpage as an example. Is your webpage going to be a static, for informational purposes only? Will it be dynamic, requiring constant updates with new information such as an e-commerce site or a blog site? Do you want to set up community access and memberships, is the information you have valuable enough for people to pay to see or hear it?

Knowing what tools are at your disposal, and how to use them effectively can be daunting, and knowing what you're capable of doing yourself, and what you might want to pay for someone else to do for you, is also key for making your digital goals a reality.

Testimonials

"If you’re not technically minded, then the only thing more difficult than navigating technical things, is actually finding someone who can, and makes the effort to understand your business and the technical challenges that need solving. Somehow I ran into Tristram's work, and since day one he’s been on the ball, efficient, and incredibly detailed in all of his work on my wordpress e-Commerce store. Problems are thoughtfully navigated, there’s loads of initiative, and I’ve been over the moon at how quickly problems have been solved, with Tristram being thorough and detailed every step of the way in explaining what was being done. A1 communication, and it finally feels like there is a conversational, human interface to technical challenges that I had no idea how to solve previously nor where to find good help. Legendary stuff and would recommend to anyone. " - Oli S E-Commerce Site Modifications

He was super quick in delivering and went way above and beyond the task given. He helped me remove redirections from my website, reviewed unnecessary plugins, updated woocommerce shop buttons and product page. Very pleased and will definitely hire him again!" - Alisa P Wordpress Website Issues
"You won’t believe it but it’s happened; there’s still such a thing as old fashioned considerate service. I was extremely fortunate enough to stumble upon Tristram when I was looking for someone to build me a website. He kind of just, appeared and overshadowed any other options, with exuberance and determination, and I’m glad he did.
Tristram made me a site that was exciting to watch come to life and he did so with careful consideration and communication. When it came to handing over the keys he guided me easily through the sites admin panel where I was to take control and prove my capabilities to him via a brief but thorough phone conversation. He set up things that I didnt even know were “things”. This bloke knows his stuff.
