Is My Web Designer Ripping Me Off? 13 Bad Signs.

Posted in rants by Jon Payne on 21-Apr-2016 16:40:03

Like a geeky Bisto kid, I can sniff out a dud SEO and poor web development from a mile off. I’ve worked with a lot of great designers, agency and freelance, over the years but too many times there’s been digital charlatans in the mix.

While it may be festive and fun at the moment, the new year will soon be upon us to start the process again. What will happen in 2013 we wonder? Well considering 13 is an unlucky number for some, as in life I predict there may be some unfortunate events that will fall upon us and the industry. So maybe in a slightly pessimistic fashion I bring you mine and the teams predictions for 2013 (while eating mince pies and wearing Christmas jumpers, so we don't depress ourselves too much)
