Client: Youth Adventure Trust

WAM were able to give us an accurate budget and project plan for our site development. They interpreted the creative brief extremely well and have helped us to develop a website that is having a real impact on our charity.

They provided reliable communications throughout the build and hit the deadlines set. 

They have an extremely high level of technical expertise which enables them to deliver on site functionality.

I would highly recommend them to anyone.

New project: Momentum Surf Shop

Written by Jeremy Webb

momentum surf shop2

We enjoyed doing this web site for a Scottish surf school and board shaper. As we were completing it, they gained the status of official O'Neill Scottish Surf Academy which is a great testament to the quality of their surf teaching. The site itself features some nice features such as a background video on the home page, live surf conditions for the main Scottish surf breaks and a simple shopping cart. It's looks great on mobile devices as well as full desktop screens.

£5000 Digital Scotland Growth Vouchers

Written by Jeremy Webb


Anything England can do, Scotland can do better?

You might recall that in a previous blog post we wrote about the Marketplace initiative which is distributing around 20,000 match funding growth vouchers to business. A lot of readers were disappointed as this was only open to English businesses.

We've now discovered that there is a little known, and under-subscribed equivalent in Scotland - the Digital Scotland Growth Voucher. In many ways it's better - £5000 not £2000 and up to 75% funding for any project!

The project has not been widely publicised (it's currently running as a pilot project) and the closing date for applications has been extended to the 30th August 2014. To apply, simply get in touch with your local Business Gateway who will lead you through the process. 

Eligibility seems to be pretty wide - if you are an SME looking for ambitious growth using the web, e-commerce and digital services then you are well placed to use this scheme.

So if you are a Scottish business, now is a really great time to implement that e-commerce / web / digital plan! Contact Jeremy Webb (Call 0131 618 7770 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Customer reviews – love them, but don’t trust them!

Written by Jeremy Webb

ufoIt’s a well known maxim of marketing that you can’t beat “word of mouth” as a way to spread your message. The reason is that we tend to trust the word of another, even when we don’t actually know that person very well.

For this reason, marketers are always trying to leverage this “people power” to disseminate information. Online you see it more and more in the form of Customer Reviews, where you can read comments from people who have purchased a certain product or service you may be interested in.
