...and the service you can expect

Our Story

I incorporated Top Pixel Ltd in 2016 - but I've been building websites for small/medium sized business owners since 2008. However, prior to taking on website design, I began my IT career offering a PC repair service and a one-to-one Computer Tuition service. I built my first website for one of my students; a local decorator, and I soon learnt that creating and designing websites was a lot more satisfying than repairing broken PC's.

In 2008 I incorporated my first company, RiDom Ltd; and offered the full web design service as a part time business - in addition to a full time job. I soon began educating myself in SEO and Google AdWords, and then after becoming more aware of patterns in user interaction - I pursued a deeper understanding of web analytics by learning Google Analytics best practice. During it's five years RiDom had serviced around 30 clients. This was a busy and exciting time, meeting lots of people and being involved in lots of different business activities.

In 2013 I was offered a fantastic role working as a Web Developer at Virgin Wines; a thriving Virgin Group company. And at this time, new business had to slow down for RiDom given my new responsibilities at Virgin.

After 3 years I was promoted to Lead Front End Developer and led the front end team through the build of the new website; a 2 year project which was part of an entire IT restructure across the business. In 2016 I was incredibly grateful and fortunate to win Employee of the Year; with the reward being dinner and an evening with Richard and Holly Branson. I can’t say highly enough how much Virgin Wines is a great company to work for; there are some fantastic people there who believe in the Virgin way of working, they work very hard but play harder I'd say!

In 2017 I decided to step down from my role at Virgin Wines and revisit the challenge to build my own business. However, I'm privileged to maintain a strong working relationship with Virgin Wines and help the team whenever they need extra resource. This year I hope to grow Top Pixel. It will be a company that other businesses can trust manage their digital requirements, provide expert consultancy on best practices online and be seen as an integral experienced digital partner.

I hope you found my story even the slightly bit interesting, I felt it was important to be transparent right from the start. Thanks for reading and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch - [email protected]. Cheers, Mike.

Understanding your needs

There are a whole bunch of off the shelf websites that you can purchase for less than a hundred pounds. However, like most industries you get what you pay for and without going into too much detail, these websites are only useful to serve the most basic of needs, they have a low ceiling in terms of opportunity and miss having expert knowledge behind them.

When we connect and begin talking about your website requirements we envisage ourselves as a member of your team. We will work with you to understand your business, and build a website which will really help you run a better business.

Together we start creating

Help us understand your requirements by quickly filling in our online quote form. We'll get back to you with a rough idea of costs; and will more than likely ask whether you want to meet up to discuss in further detail.

If you are happy with what you have heard at this point, we'll start putting together wire-frame designs based on our discussions and a perception of the potential customer goals. We'll then flesh these out into bespoke designs, and once you are happy we will start building the website. You can see it taking form as we will send you links to view the progress. And when all the tweaking is complete, we'll launch the website live on the internet and give you training on how to watch your customer trends in your admin and analytics tools. And it doesn't end there, of course not; we'll keep in constant contact to see how your website is helping your business and provide constant feedback and recommendations. And from there - let's watch it grow!
