About Northstar Web Design

Northstar web design was founded in 2000 by Fred Campbell, after more than 20 years working in the advertising industry.

As the revenue from traditional media, such as print and television, it became apparent that the way to move forward was the internet.

At that time the world wide web was still a comparatively new medium, few people had email, and even fewer companies had websites. However, Fred was certain that it would catch on - purely because he was certain that businesses wouldn't be able to resist the lower marketing costs and an unlimited audience that could be reached 24 hours a day.

Ten years and over 50 websites later, and his convictions have proved to be correct. Last year, for the first time advertising revenue from the internet outstripped that on TV.

Full service

Northstar provides small to medium sized businesses with a full range of online marketing services, from Content Management Systems to Email Marketing.

Every project is personally managed by Fred, and where appropriate, outsourced to a list of trustworthy and talented suppliers. The beauty of this system is that there are no offices, no overheads, and so the job gets completed faster and at a dramatically lower cost.

A one stop shop

It's strange the way the internet has developed, companies seem to have split between design and Search Engine Optimisation. Not so with Northstar, we can handle both aspects with equal ease and accomplishment. This is vitally important, as the design coding and structure of the site play a key role in SEO, a site that is build correctly can save a small fortune in off-site optimisation.

Words matter

Fred has been a professional copywriter for more than a quarter of a century and has written copy for leading companies, such as BP, Unilever, Bosch and Onken - to name drop but a few.

In the traditional media, written and persuasive copy can make the difference between an enquiry and a waste of money. On the internet it is even more crucial to get this aspect right, as words are the only thing the search engines see, it's how they rate and rank your site. Having the right keyphase seemlessly woven into the text is a vital part of SEO, which is how you are going to get potential customers visiting your site in the first place.
