Lifestyle Businesses

Lifestyle Businesses is an online resource and ebook library for people setting up and running lifestyle businesses.

After adopting Lifestyle Businesses’ WordPress website from a local design agency, and moving to a more reliable cost-effective host, owners Simon and Linda prepared a list of changes they wanted to make to their site to improve usability, flexibility and compatibility.

Working with the integrated plugins, including file sale download management software Easy Digital Downloads, I fixed some design issues, added Ajax scrolling to the news section and created a tidier interface for the owners giving them more control over their WordPress website.

    I can’t recommend Jem enough. She was, and still is, a total pleasure to work with. Patient, diligent and best of all, she didn’t blind me with “technical talk” which in itself was a blessing in disguise. She was amazing whilst the site was being built and since the launch has always been on hand if I have needed her. If you are thinking of working with her, all I will say is… “DO IT!”

    I was close to giving up after 8 years as a blogger. No matter what I did or who I got to help me, the hacker was one step ahead. That is until I enlisted the help of Jem Turner who managed to rid my blog of hacks and give me the confidence to blog again.

    We needed a quick refresh of our website, which is heavily used by prospective and existing parents, staff and pupils. We needed to make sure that our site was flexible to appeal to all our end users and showcased our school. Working with Jem, I was able to quickly turn my thoughts into a brief, and then into a final product.

    Jem clearly knows what she is doing with WordPress, and her work showcases her considerable knowledge and no nonsense approach. I intend to use her again, when required, and would recommend her to others looking for a developer who knows WordPress inside out.

    Jem re-designed our website for us, ensuring it is now engaging, user-friendly and fantastic-looking. Highly recommend.

Why I love working with WordPress

I've been using WordPress since the heady days of version 1.2 and developing WordPress websites commercially since version 1.5 (released in 2005!)
