With Age - Comes Wisdom and Success!
As you can imagine, we have grown substantially over the years and now boast over 2500 business accounts across the nation - supported by our wide-reaching network of local consultants. Reassuringly, we still provide our service to many of the clients we spoke to 12 years ago and our client base is growing on a daily basis.
Our longevity is no fluke. We have worked hard and gone to great lengths to make sure we stay ahead of the game. This has included the development of our industry-leading CMS software, search engine optimisation techniques, e-commerce websites and customer service ethos.
Over the years, we have managed to constantly enhance our reputation and experience, as well as building on our business partnerships with Paypal, Google Analytics, StatCounter and Check Rate, amongst others. These partnerships have strengthened the service we offer and keep us at the forefront of website provision for the SME market.
In 2009 this hard work was recognised in a very public way when one of our clients won the following Award:

WE WON! Positively Carver wins Award | Best not-for-profit website in the North East.
Radio Teesdale won the best not-for-profit website award within the Digital Users section. The awards were established in 2007 and celebrate the excellence of the growing digital industry in the North East of England, showcasing the best of the region's digital talent. This year's competition attracted over 250 entries and just 105 were short-listed by public vote. The competition process was all done online at Digital Awards North East and attracted over 16,000 visits in three months.
Alistair McCall, the Chief Executive of Business Link North East, spoke at the awards, "It fills me with confidence that we have got so many great businesses doing great things using technology to open up new markets, develop new products and to challenge, you know, maybe some of the perception is, at the moment, that things are not particularly positive. Business is creating opportunities and capitalizing on those".
Radio Teesdale's website is based on a CMS system provided by Britnett Website Services, a Business website design specialist, who have consultants available nationally. Chris Ord from The Enterprise Agency for Wear Valley and Teesdale manages the presentation of the main website and content is provided by station manager Peter Dixon, and all the many volunteers contribute through listen again audio, a photo gallery of visitors to the station, presenter profiles and the latest news about the station.
Gill Hunter from Muckle Solicitors was one of the judges who reviewed the Radio Teesdale website and commented, "One of the things that impressed me was the variety of content on there and also the thing that really came across in the application was the passion and the enthusiasm from people involved and the fact that the whole team had bought into the project and everybody was really passionate about it."
