I’m Sarah and welcome to my new business HEY Pear. I design creative websites for small businesses.
Having worked in various marketing roles, maintaining the websites was always a big part of my job. I came to realise that most of the websites I was dealing with were poorly designed and difficult to maintain.
I’ve always been interested in web design from the days when I had a relatively successful blog (that I deleted when I became pregnant – why did I do that?!) and then three years ago I started a kidswear brand and set up an e-commerce website.
After years of having my own e-commerce site and managing various sites in marketing roles I decided it was time to take the plunge and start my web design business – I was fed-up of seeing sub-standard websites being created for small businesses and knew I could do a better job.
Starting my own business three years ago was the best thing I ever did and I wish I had done it years ago. I was working full-time and didn’t get to spend time with my son and knew I needed to be able to work flexibly and from home – I want to help others to also achieve this and get their business off to a great start by having a beautiful, professional, and functional website.
