Used Nappies

Used Nappies - the number 1 auction site in the UK to buy and sell used, pre-loved washable cloth nappies.

In early 2016, looking for a way to pass on my children’s reuseable nappies and get a return on my investment, I went in search of a site which would facilitate the sale of these used (clean!) nappies. I found UsedNappies.co.uk but it was in the process of being shut down as the current owner was moving on.

I stepped in and purchased the site, including software licenses and user base. The purchase and takeover was not without issues. The software the site was running on (PHPProBid 6) was massively out of date which meant that there were potential security issues. The upgrade to the latest version of the site software was both a) expensive and b) complicated by poor documentation.

I took the decision to restart the site from scratch. Once the new version of the site was up and running on the latest version of PHPProBid, I created an email to advise the 15,000+ existing users that they needed to re-register. I re-developed the appearance of the site creating a custom theme for the software, custom WordPress blog and reintegrated social media.

    Jem has been unflinchingly helpful with every stage of the development of the Albion site, and has helped us keep it up to date and functioning effectively, solving problems as they have arisen. I am a techno-phobe, but Jem has been unfailingly supportive, helpful, always friendly and efficient. Also her rates seem really good value, but don’t tell her I said so.

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

    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.

    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!”

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!)
