Former award-winner First 4 Websites will once again be attending the Northumberland Business Awards evening at Linden Hall.

But this year it will be showing its support by sponsoring a category.

The company specialises in bespoke websites and corporate branding, and provides social media training to companies throughout the North East.

It is committed to providing innovative designs and effective search engine optimisation, but most importantly excellent customer care and long-standing business relationships with all of its clients.

First 4 Websites said it has felt the fantastic benefits since winning Best Small Rural Business in Northumberland in 2013.

The website design firm, based in Berwick, has expanded its business hugely since winning the award, taking on an extra three staff and two more local apprentices.

Sarah Williams, director, said: “We are passionate about providing the very best customer care with value added services, and that’s what sets us apart.

“This includes free monthly website changes and a website facelift each year.

“This facelift ensures that your website doesn’t become too dated.

“It is so important that both the front and back-end of a site remains current, which is why we even update the code your website is written in.

“Our young and vibrant team work tirelessly towards our goals every day, making First 4 Websites a company that is proud to say we are here to help and work with your business.”

The company says its success is down to having face-to-face meetings with clients to understand their needs and involve them at each and every stage of the project, ensuring that the end result is always a website to shout about.

One such client is Paxton House, which now has a new website – www.paxtonhouse.co.uk

Launched in April, it now includes the functionality to sell tickets and passes online.

Businesses from all across the county will be recognised for their achievements at November’s awards ceremony, and First 4 Websites is looking forward to meeting some new and more well-known faces there.
