  • Run Your Design Business Without Giving Up Your Life

    Finding and maintaining a healthy work/life balance is a never-ending challenge for almost everyone.

    Website design firm, Independent Web Marketing, was started back in 1996 by Mark Caswell during a time when he says selling website design “was like selling double glazing whilst having to explain what glass was.” The Lincolnshire-based company now serves clients that range from a small hot air balloon company to the British Athletes Commission, a government funded organization representing 1,500 elite athlete members, many competing at the Olympics.

Times were changing and the way in which people communicate and want to receive or find information was also changing…fast.
