2018 Past Projects
2018 Past Projects - Daily Updates

Giving a big push to Terry Butler's new website Sunderland Boiler Repairs. If like me you pay someone like Homeserve a monthly fee to service your gas boiler, (actually they don't even really do that) more there as support if it break's down but are considering switching away from that to a trusted local tradesman, look no further than Terry. Terry is a long establised qualified gas repair man with a proven track record and great feedback on the likes of CheckATrade. So, if you live in the Sunderland, or County Durham area keep his details safe by visiting his website just in case we have another winter like last year!

Sunny again after an Airshow washout weekend.
Thursday 19th July 2018 -
Cloudy and very warm and humid here today on the Roker Riveria. After a month long World Cup journey that saw the nation carried along with the belief that football was coming home (until England's semi final exit at the hands of Croatia) then more locally we have had the Tall Ships Sunderland visit our home port here on our doorstep.
One of our flagship projects at the minute is our UK Driver CPC Network site. With it's sister site North East Driver we aim to give them both a fresh new makeover with a new logo, a big push up Google and a concerted effort across social media. We've also started to get in to the Pay Per Click side of things on Google and up to now we are finding it quite interesting. We will maybe use this site as a case study and start to offer this as one of our services all going well. With the Google sponsored ads I've always been a bit sceptical about this and I remain not totally convinced.

What a great idea! Turning shipping containers into timber clad luxury holiday cabins for your back garden! So for luxury bespoke Kabin installers for your back garden in the North East visit the new website we have developed for Kabin Fever Ltd. We will be giving this another big push again soon!
Meanwhile over in Newcastle, good to see yet another testimonial come through for Smith Tile & Stone (Luxury Bathrooms in Newcastle and the North East).

Cloudy and very warm and humid here today on a day that feels like a return back to normality. After a month long World Cup journey that saw the nation carried along with the belief that football was coming home (until England's semi final exit at the hands of Croatia) then more locally we have had the Tall Ships Sunderland visit our home port here on our doorstep. So, back to normal and back to work!

Gloomy weather here this morning for official start of Tall Ships. If you are heading through, forget about parking on north bank of river in St Peters area. Residents access only. Head for Metro's on south side and get off at St Peters. This being the week of the Tall Ships and we can see things building up from our office window at St Peters

Very warm and humid but cloudy and drizzling today here on the Roker Riveria, looking forward to England's semi final on Wednesday v Croatia at the World Cup in Russia! And of course this is the week of the Tall Ships and we can see things building up from our office window at St Peters.
Wednesday 3rd July 2018 -
Warm but cloudy today here on the Roker Riveria, looking forward to England's knock out match v Columbia tonight at the World Cup in Russia! And could we be on course for the warmest year on record ever? Great weather this summer so far.
Monday 2nd July 2018 -
Another lovely day today again on the Roker Riveria, after a weekend of penalty shoot out drama at the World Cup in Russia! And could we be on course for the warmest year on record ever?

Another lovely day today again on the Roker Riveria, looking forward to the Belgium match tonight! And could we be on course for the warmest year on record ever? Great summer so far. (England lost that night 1-0).
Monday 25th June 2018 -
Another lovely day today again on the Roker Riveria, looking forward to really getting our teeth into a couple of new projects for LuckyB and Kabin Fever. Great weekend of sport with England 6-1 in the World Cup football with two Mackems in the side and the England cricket ODI team whitewashing the Aussies 5-0 for the first time ever! And could we be on course for the warmest year on record ever? Great summer so far.

Sea fret here today on the Roker Riveria after another glorious Bank Holiday weekend.
Friday 25th May 2018 -
Cloudy and clamy again here today on the Roker Riveria. And GDPR day has finally arrived! And oh the irony of everyone bombarding us with emails asking if they can continue to bombard us with even more emails! Looking forward to reading all the new privacy policies over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Temperature as dropped and cloudy again here today on the Roker Riveria.

A lovely sunny day here today on the Roker Riveria! Seems like we are having a better spring than some of the summers we have had over recent years.
Thursday 17th May 2018 -
A bit warmer here on the Roker Riveria today but not that much smoke now from what they were calling the 'Great Fire of Sunderland'. Drove past the scene on the way in to work today and it's still smouldering
Wednesday 16th May 2018 -
A bit chilly here on the Roker Riveria today but not that much smoke now from what they were calling the 'Great Fire of Sunderland'. A disused recycling plant (Alex Smiles Ltd) further up the river at Deptford had started on Monday and took a brave effort by mutiple fire crews to bring under control. GDPR day (May 25th) getting closer!
Tuesday 15th May 2018 -
Glorious weather here on the Roker Riveria today but quite a lot of smoke still from what they are calling the 'Great Fire of Sunderland'. A disused recycling plant further up the river at Deptford is still ablaze 12 hours after starting yesterday

We have just recently completed a revamp of a website we started four years ago for Alpha 7 Express Couriers. They requested our development team add a new 'Get A Quote' function on the home page which enables potential customers to plot a price from 'A' to 'B'. Once your website is built you can also add extras like this on a 'one off' payment basis. Peter at Alpha7 has since told me this new feature really worked well for him when a contract he has for a local tier one automotive supplier to Nissan made great use of this price calculator to use him for multiple bookings!
“Amazing fast, efficient service from Gary... Highly recommend to any business for amazing website results." - Courtney Snowball, Alpha 7 - May 2018

Going live today, a simple 'brochure' site for Brian the Builder (Avenue Builders and Landscapers Ltd). Brian has been coming to us for years for his printing and we have finally talked him into getting a basic 8 page website! All it took was a £200.00 plus vat initial build deposit and Brian will now pay £25.00 per month (plus Vat) to keep his site up to date. Brian does some really good work and by his own admission was probably underselling himself by not having a website. All that has changed now and Brian's new site is now live displaying a lot of the great projects he has completed mainly in the niche market of themed playgrounds for primary schools. Now any potential Head or Deputy Head teacher can check out Brian's work online. If you are a local tradesmen looking to get a new website click here...

Well done WDPS! Well done to our friends at West Denton Primary School after surviving their recent Ofsted visit. They received a "Good" with "Outstanding" in some areas such as 'Leadership'. Well done WDPS! And we have dropped off another batch of Prospectus's that we design and produce for them every year soon. Head Teacher Mick MingStones over the moon with another fine print and design job from NRG Digital.
Very busy this month with ongoing updates.

New enquiries coming thick and fast at the moment. One of which is Gary Taylor of Gary Taylor Plumbing and Heating Ltd. Gary covers heating and boiler repairs in the Sunderland and Durham area.
Thursday 1st March 2018 - 'Beast from the East' hitting us hard here at our office at the mouth of the River Wear, North Sea Coast!
It'd be a white rabbit today all right! Made it to work today at last. Leave the car at home I thought. Get the Metro I thought. What could possibly go wrong! 3 hours later, 2 broken Metro trains and 2 buses, finally made it to St Peters!
New clients, busy, busy!
Monday 5th February 2018
Making Tax Digital is something all businesses need to be aware of. To be honest we hadn't heard of HMRC's plans to implement sweeping new changes to the way we all have to now keep records and submit returns until a new client asked us to develop a new comparison website 'Compare Cloud Accountants'. It's still in the early stages of development at the moment, but our client heard about our SEO prowess and the challenge has been given to us!
Monday 8th January 2018
Happy New Year! Back to work today for the first week 'proper'. Make 2018 the year you 'go digital'! Nice sunny day on the Roker Riveria today.
