Thinking local is the way forward says the owner of a new web design agency.

Martin Huntbach, 25, has found that the personal touch is working for Fylde Coast Marketing and the owner and website designer is delighted with the agency’s initial success.

He said: “We took the decision early on to focus on small local businesses and we’ve been delighted with the reaction so far.

“We’ve found that companies really see the value in having a website and the importance of being found on search engines, but many don’t know where to start.

“Our aim is to allow all local businesses access to their own attractive, search engine friendly website at an affordable price. Some web designers don’t want to leave the studio, we like to get out an meet the clients face to face to find out exactly what they need.”

Martin, who worked in retailing, started the business in January after realising an ambition to make use of his art and design training and his love of computers.

Kelly Ellison decided to take the plunge by getting a brand new website for her cake company, Cake Tin Delights, based in Blackpool. 

“I think that it is so important for small businesses to get themselves online,” she said.

“I absolutely love my new website and I have noticed a real increase in sales after its launch, plus having the option to pay monthly is something that really works for me.”

Martin is running a competition for Lancashire firms to win a 10 page website with free hosting for a year. Visit
