Start–up Website Assistance

Follow-up to Start–up Websites Using Google Page Creator from MJB's blog

Following the initial success with creating a simple website for the new start-up company Hotch Potch, I have used the same approach and created another new start-up business website using Google Page Creator. The new start-up is called JF Cleaning Services and their website can be found at This company is the latest start-up to receive fully funded support from the WMCCM start-up programme, full details of which can be found at

Start–up Websites Using Google Page Creator

Writing about web page

As part of of my work on the WMCCM (West Midlands Collaborative Marketplace) Start-up Project, I had a need to help a new start-up company called Hotch Potch get a new website up and running to a very tight deadline, but with the ability to allow the client to easily evolve over the site over time without html or web design skills.

A colleague suggested using Google Page Creator which I did after conducting a quick evaluation.  In just a couple of hours I was able to easily structure and populate a professional looking website which the client is very pleased with. Although there are some limitations in the styles of site available, I believe there is sufficient scope for producing customised sites for start-ups that can quickly provide them with a valuable and effective hosted web presence for free, with the only cost being for domain name registration if they want a more professional web address than the Google provided one.

I would recommend the use of this online package for anyone wanting a quick, easy to use, essentially free web presence.

New Start–up Assistance from WMCCM

Writing about web page

As part of a new push to sign up new start-up companies within the West Midlands for free assistance via WMCCM, I visited an enterprising new plumbing business today called Bubbles. The company is operational and has a website which is not yet recognised by the major search engines.

Following Rob McGonigle's success in rapidly solving this problem for another new start-up as reported in his recent blog entry Links get sites found & Warwick Blogs links work Fast & cuts carbon!, I am using his recommended approach here.  Given the time that other methods can take to get sites recognised by search engines, this is a real quick win way of providing valuable assistance to new start-up businesses. 

Full details of the WMCCM free assistance offerings for start-up companies and the conditions for eligibility can be found at our new sub-site
