Website help for local business

Many local businesses have been forced into reduced face to face contact during COVID-19, emphasizing  the need for an online presence. Shop fronts may have been forced into confronting the vagaries of selling online and it can be a daunting prospect.

For businesses affected in Gippsland, Warragul based Eastcoast IT is offering free consultations via Zoom or phone for those who may be considering starting or growing their website to increase opportunities.

While the most obvious application may be an online shop, there are also many other ways your website can work for you, particularly service based businesses, for example online billing with secure payment gateways, industry specific form processing, bookings and reservation applications and team document sharing.

One of our longest running contracts was the development and maintenance of an online self-managed super fund audit process for an accountancy firm. So effective was this application, the company subsequently transitioned into specialising in SMSF audits only. No online selling in sight, just a labour saving data collection tool.

If you’re considering a new website, a rebuild, or just don’t know which way to go, I’m happy to have a chat and answer any questions, no obligation. This is available to Gippsland businesses only and you may have seen our offers for COVID-19 grant recipients on Facebook and our website.

Recent editing and self-publishing projects

We have recently completed two major editing and self-publishing projects:

We produced a memoir for our client Shirley Reynolds. This included comprehensive developmental and structural editing, copy editing, graphic design of inside pages and cover, hiring the printer and producing all aspects of this self-published book. The client wanted the book by Christmas and we managed to meet this deadline. Shirley’s book is here.

We edited a book of poetry for client Kate Erlenbusch. This included a structural and developmental edit followed by a copy edit. We also designed the inside pages of Kate’s book which Kate self-published and printed in December 2020. See Hope unfeathered.

We are currently producing three other books (all Gippsland clients). Stay posted for news of our next publications.

Note: I’ve been editing and producing self-published books for clients since 1998. For more information go to: Editing, proofreading, coaching, self-publishing.
