Cant wait to get the changes completed and uploaded to my website, the original was a great web design but the newer version will be even better.

Well I have been mad busy this week with new web design projects and on-going SEO which has made my first week as a 22 year old tiresome but that is what comes with being a web designer.
I am close to completing and launching two new websites which are both similar web designs in terms of industry and layout but each unique in their own rights. As soon as they are complete I will report back and have them added to my portfolio.
Sam Jay Heaton - 10 May 2014

Hard at work as normal, really really looking forward to launching some of the best work I have done. I have been working hard on a few web design projects some for local Wigan business and others from afar but each web design is unique and classy.
I really enjoy working with the client, when good communication is there from both sides it makes the whole process much more refined and perfected. One of the best things about being a freelance web designer is that I get to meet some really awesome people, I get the chance to work with companies and organisations from around the United Kingdom.
Sam Jay Heaton - 29 April 2014
Well I am currently working on a few interesting projects two of which are soon to launch very soon, I am currently working on a web design that I really can't wait to get up and live and show the world wide web so keep you eyes peeled as it should be launching soon.

Apart from the norm I have been working on my server and have upgraded it yet again this time I have increased its memory to ensure even faster hosting and increasing the resources for those bigger, hungrier websites.
Sam Jay Heaton - 22 April 2014

Finally happy to announce that the newly re-designed Gifts4Gifts website has relaunched with a brand new design and loads of new features. Gifts4Gifts has a website designed last year by a web design agency in Wigan but after months of hosting issues and the website not being what they wanted they decided to look for a new company to host their website, Annette from Gifts4Gifts then contacted me just before Christmas and we met up and we discussed their website. We both had ideas on how to improve the website and both decided the best solution is an entirely brand new eCommerce website.
We then worked closely to make sure the website was this time exactly what Gifts4Gifts wanted, the website has personalised items that have specific options that are easily added to listings and connect directly with their suppliers to ensure a smooth and hassle free experience not only for the team at Gifts4Gifts but for the end user.
It has been a pleasure to have worked with Annette on this project and I can't wait to get working on their newsletters and SEO over the next few weeks, be sure to check them out at www.gifts4gifts.com
Sam Jay Heaton - 22 March 2014
I am hard at work on some great new projects, I am working closely with a local company that are selling motocross, enduro and trials tyres. This is a website that has a robust feel to it. I can't wait to get this website up and running. I am also working on a website for the guys over at Uniquely-U, we have been in contact since late last year and now we are all working together to get the right website, it was a weird feeling seeing their shop with the massive logo I had designed I don't think I have ever been so amazed!
I am working with previous clients also on new projects, I have something very interesting as a personal project in the pipeline and something I hope can make a small change to the world wide web. As always I will keep you posted with the progress but be sure to keep checking back to see some soon to be added web designs.

The Raven Facility website was designed and developed with the intention of making itself standout amongst the competition. I am looking forward to working with Stuart and Raven Facility as they progress and as their website progresses.
Sam Jay Heaton - 13 March 2014
I have been a client of O2's for the past 4 years and overall I was not satisfied with their service both in terms of price and overall support so I decided to look into an alternative network provider.
That is when I came across Ovivo Mobile who offered a SIM card that gives you 500 minutes, 500 text and 1000mb of data which is not a bad package and suited me and my web design business, the really cool part is that the SIM card does not have a monthly charge meaning every month I receive 500 minutes, 500 text and 1000mb of data for free. It sounded to good to be true but I decided to order the SIM card which was a one off fee of £20 and they take £5 for postage and the other £15 is added to the card as credit.
A few days later I received the SIM and to my amazement it worked with no issues on my Google Nexus 5 so I decided to bring over my O2 number which Ovivo Mobile gladly did all this for me. So I now have an amazing contract SIM where I don't pay a thing! The service is always great and having 1000mb of data means I can easily load up web pages when I am out and I can even tether my phone so it shares it service with my laptop so I can make any changes to websites or check services even when I am out and travelling.
Sam Jay Heaton - 8 March 2014
Today I have upgraded to my own dedicated server which means I have more control over the websites I host and that an overall improvement will be noticeable in terms of performance on all the websites I host. This will not affect any current clients with any of the services I have provided.
This is very exciting for me as it allows me to do a lot more, I have more control over the hosting I offer so you can expect a lot more of packages I will be able to offer. I can't wait to fill up my server with some beautiful web designs now!
Sam Jay Heaton - 4 March 2014
I have been really busy this year and it has been great, I have been working with some truly interesting businesses and industries, I have made some great friends and met some inspirational people. I love updating my web design portfolio and I am always designing great websites for both clients and for my portfolio.
With every design I like to push the boundaries of what is considered web design by simplifying complex websites. I hate nothing more than landing on a website that has over complicated navigation and functions. Once I understand the clients requirements I then start to design a website in my head, I take into consideration their industry and their clients and design a simplistic, beautiful website around that. By using analytical tools it allows me to monitor websites and see exactly what visitors are doing when they visit websites, this gives me an overview of what steps they take, how they navigate and what exactly do from their I work with my clients to perfect not only their content but their navigation and functions on their website.
If you have a website that you think is a little complex for your clients then why not get in touch and see how I can improve your website and its navigation or functions.
Sam Jay Heaton - 2 March 2014
Hey guys! I have had a few good meetings over the past couple of days which have been very productive. Looking forward to starting on some really interesting websites over the next couple of days. I am also close to completing a few web designs that will be great additions to my web design portfolio so be sure to keep checking back for updates.
Well as you are aware if you read my last post my domain is now 1 year old which is great and I have had a few compliments which are always appreciated. I have recently upgraded my server which will not effect any existing customers as I have simply upgraded the specifications on the machine that hosts the websites. This in turn will speed up overall loading times and also allow larger more powerful website to perform quicker and more freely within the server, might sound a bit technical but it is needed and another great addition to Sam Jay Heaton - Web Design Wigan
Sam Jay Heaton - 25 February 2014
Well today is the official day in which my domain name www.samjayheaton.com turns 1 year old, this website originally started as a portfolio so that I could showcase some of my web design work but it quickly grew into fully fledged website that now ranks high on Google and other search engines on the world wide web, I have won web design awards and met some truly awesome people.
1 year is a short period of time so I can't wait to see what the next year will bring or even what the next 10 years will bring, I thank everyone that I have worked with and I look forward to meeting more awesome people and businesses.
Sam Jay Heaton - 20 February 2014
Hello guys, as some of you may know I have been working less hours this past week as my dad has been in hospital expecting surgery which I am happy to announce that today he had his surgery and is on his way to recovery! I will be with him over the next day or so and hopefully he will be discharged soon.
I will be resuming the normal flow of work from Friday, this was just a quick update as for me announcing my dad is OK is just as important as launching a new website! So onto some more good news I have been working with two really interesting companies who want two awesome web designs. One of the companies has been let down dramatically by a local web design company in Wigan and had a real bad time so it is my job to get them where they need to be with a brand new eCommerce website and upon completion we will be working together to get them up the search engines and getting some sales.
The other project is for a very talented singer, I cant wait to get his website up as it is looking awesome and one I cant wait to add to my portfolio. As always I will keep you posted with any updates and thanks for everyone of my clients that send their wishes to my dad it meant a lot, Thank you!

Well it has been two years exactly to this day that I designed my first freelance website. A lot has changed in the web design game some things have advanced dramatically and others have just faded away. As time has gone on I have been able to build a skill set of techniques and knowledge which in return has allowed me to do things with web design and search engine optimisation that was not possible 2 years ago.
I enjoy designing and developing websites but the one thing I enjoy most is a successful website for my clients, I love to hear feedback, I love working with them and I cant wait to see who I will meet over the next 2 years.

I have further plans for this website and I tend to be adding a timeline rather similar to what I previously had and also a more attractive blog sections.

I have added another website to my portfolio today, this time a website for a ironer in Wigan, they required a clean and simple website that was striking yet got straight to the point. The outcome is a very simplistic and modern web design.
This is another great website to add to my portfolio and one I am happy to have worked on, it was something a little different and at times hard to get inspiration as all the competition have really bad looking websites, but we got there in the end and the website is awesome if I don't say so myself. I wish Iron Out all the best of luck and I look forward to working with them both now and in the future.
Sam Jay Heaton - 19 December 2013
Well its nearly that time of the year again, its very nearly Christmas! As we approach Christmas I am finishing off a few websites so hopefully I will be adding them to my portfolio. I have recently been working on several projects both large and small and hopefully I will have them on my portfolio over the next couple of days.
I have just finished designing a few logo's for a client and I am really happy with the outcome and the client is spoilt for choice which is always a good thing so hopefully the website will be that good! I have previously said I am working on a personal web project which is making steady progress but I am a little far off completion. Hopefully as the new year roles in I will be able to spend any free time I have on that project so be sure to check back in the new year.

It was great working with Bob of Total Handling Solutions, we worked very closely on the project to ensure he was 100% happy with the website. It looks great and it is going to be ranking very highly over the next couple of days.

Well yesterday was my mothers Birthday so it was a welcome rest away from the normal, but today I am back in full swing when it comes to web design and search engine optimisation.
I have added the very talented Chantal Tuner's website Bows and Bespoke a website she has had much input into and she has even been learning how to design her own banners so well done to Chantal. She designs and creates beautiful bespoke bows and other girly accessories for all ages.
I am also on the verge of launching another website which is a forklift website which is a really interesting web design to have on my portfolio and something I think will stand out amongst the other forklift websites.
Apart from all the hard work I am also now on Twitter, yes that's right I am on Twitter and I am learning how to tweet. If you want to follow me and keep up to date with what#s happening with me and also web design, web development and search engine optimisation news be sure to follow me for frequent updates.

Really happy to have added Limitless Outdoors to my portfolio, this is a gorgeous website and e-commerce website. They are the UK's only official stockist of Miveu a HD POV iPhone camera that you can attach to your bike or body and film sporting events from a different perspective.
A cool device needs a cool website, the website is responsive which makes the whole website and the user experience much more fluid and in return keeps customers on the website much longer. They are adding more products and are also have athlete reviews so it will be interesting to see how the website and its content grows.
The guys over at Limitless Outdoors are targeting all kinds of shops over the UK including Wigan to stock the Miveu so if you are not interested in one for yourself you may want to sell them?
I wish the guys are Limitless Outdoors all the best of luck and I look forward to working with them again in the future.

Whew what a hectic few weeks, I have been hard at work with a few projects one for a seller of a great outdoor pov camera which is looking amazing, another for a great chap with a great idea, another for a young talented lady that makes bows and accessories and last but not least is a site for a good friend who is very demanding... trust me!
Apart from that I have been working on the SEO of both my site and the sites of my clients ensuring we are all benefiting. I am really looking forward to getting all of these new web designs up and on my portfolio, they are all stunning but a few of them are jaw droppingly gorgeous.
I also have a few projects I want to work on for myself, I have been playing around with a idea for a website for a few months now but I have not been able to finalise a few things, if all goes to plan I will look at getting something put together by December and hopefully have some up over the Christmas holidays and then have a big launch of the website for the new year, that's if everything goes to plan.
Well that was one of the bigger posts I have done and I hope I did not bore you with it.

I have recently switched over my hosting and server to a new company Kualo, this switch will allow me to utilise the latest version of software and also allow for faster loading times and ultimately larger mail servers
This switch benefits all customer who host with myself and is another great addition to my services. This switch will not effect in anyway the costing per annum for hosting so current clients do not have to worry about that.
