Straight forward digital solutions

Are  you considering a website?

If the answer is “Yes,” and you are thinking that your business or organisation would benefit from a website…read on and I’ll talk you through just why having a website makes sense for all businesses, organisations, charities, community and interest groups.

The thing is, a good website is the best value for money tool you can use in order to harness digital communications. It allows a two way conversation with those you are trying to reach out to.

If you know you want a website you have made a great decision.

My contact details are at the bottom of each page on my site. My name is Lisa and I won’t talk “geek speak” but will help you to decide how your online presence will look and work within your budget.

About Me

I am Lisa and the director of LJ Digital Media. I designed and developed my first website over 20 years ago and since then have worked in IT in the corporate and education sectors.

Creating websites was always something I loved. I still do.

One of my favourite quotes which sums up how magical it feels to create something digital,

“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Arthur C. Clarke 

Since 2016 I have been fortunate to run my own business.  I set up LJ Digital Media with the aim of helping those who want or need a website to have one…without some of the super high ccosts that can be involved. Based in Gainford, in beautiful Teesdale my partner at work is my constant companion…my Border Terrier, Ginny!
