MIV Catch Up - Lucy Hall, Lucy's Web Designs

Lucy Hall, Founder of Lucy’s Web Designs, joined us on Twitter for #MIVReveals on Wednesday 9th December 2015.

After spending many hours scouring the internet for a suitable and affordable web design company in the Enfield North London area, Lucy realised there was a gap in the market and set up her website design business.

@lucyswebdesigns Thanks for joining us today Lucy Hall, founder of Lucy’s Web Designs - could you explain to us what it is you do? #MIVReveals

Hi @Myincventures Thanks for asking, I am a web designer and I also teach my clients how their sites work once we have finished. #MIVReveals

@lucyswebdesigns Can you tell us a little more about your background and what inspired you to set up your business? #MIVReveals

@Myincventures I wanted to make a website and I found that there was no one out there who could help me - it was really frustrating. #MIVreveals

@lucyswebdesigns What advice would you give to small businesses looking to develop a website? #MIVReveals

@Myincventures Make sure you own the domain name and know how the site works and that it’s fully responsive.. It’s imperative to me that you know how your site relates to #google & #socialmedia so that you have fun with it - and that you are confident in how to use and get the most out of it. #MIVReveals

@lucyswebdesigns So what makes your company unique – what differentiates you from your #competitors? #MIVReveals

@Myincventures I think the fact that I teach people is pretty unique, I do training videos as well. #MIVReveals.

@lucyswebdesigns As a #startupbusiness were there any particular difficulties that you encountered and how were these overcome? #MIVReveals

The main thing is confidence, it’s a scary world out there but you just have to embrace it and it comes with time @Myincventures. #MIVreveals

@lucyswebdesigns What would you say is your proudest moment so far with your business?  #MIVReveals

When a client is successful and I helped in some small way @Myincventures - and making a site for one of my fav musicians! #MIVReveals

@lucyswebdesigns What kind of #business support, financial and #mentoring, have you received? #MIVReveals

I received some great help from @EnterpriseEnf - they gave me an award :-) @Myincventures. @Opticians has been amazing, a very clever chap! #MIVReveals

@lucyswebdesigns What do you think the current environment is like for people looking to #startup a business today? #MIVReveals

Really great, there are so many people working for themselves and lots of great networking groups @Myincventures.  We are in so much more control of our destiny with #google & #socialmedia at our fingertips. #MIVReveals

@lucyswebdesigns What does the future hold for you? Anything exciting we should keep a look out for? #MIVReveals

Got some great large projects just coming to fruition, can’t wait to see where they take my clients @Myincventures #MIVReveals

@lucyswebdesigns Finally, what advice would you give to other entrepreneurs looking to set up their own business? #MIVReveals

Make sure it is an area you are really interested in - you will make mistakes, just tick them and move on and HAVE FUN! @Myincventures #MIVreveals

@lucyswebdesigns Thanks so much for joining us Lucy, we wish you every success with your future projects! #MIVReveals
