What we can do for you...

  • Content Managed Systems

    Undoubtably the biggest reasons our clients love having content managed websites is their ability to control their own site and update their own content. If search engine rankings are a priority to your business being able to quickly add fresh and unique content to your site is an essential part of gaining good search rankings.

    A CMS system will allow you to achieve this with your own inhouse team. Off course, we are available to do this for you if you wish, but having the option to do updates yourself can be very a very cost effective way to run your business. At RAW Media we specialise in developing Content Management Systems (CMS) for our clients.

    There are a number of choices to be made when choosing a CMS system; concrete5, Wordpress, Drupal and Joomla. We will guide you through this process during your initial consultancy to ensure you make the right choice for your business. Over the years, we have come to realise that most of our clients just want to quickly, easily and reliably update their own websites. So therefore we offer really quick, easy and reliable Content Management Systems. And being open source there’s no cost of acquisition, meaning we can concentrate on the build and customisation.

Founder

18 years in the IT, web, graphical and marketing industries covering a multitude of roles and responsibilities. Started in the graphical design area within a renowned software development house. Rob progressed swiftly into web and IT for a leading British Telecommunications company leading a contract team for over 3 years. Following the release of the contract he was employed to manage and run a design and marketing studio within the UK.

Rob was then recruited to establish, develop and manage a new web department for one of the largest UK buying groups. This was to also incorporate one of Europe's largest sporting goods retailers.

His experience within these companies and other freelance work has helped him to develop the expertise to include an extremely wide variety of skills. This not only led to an abundance of hands-on work but also led to the position of being called upon to give web related advice to over 300 independent retailers within the UK.
