Watkinson Website Development LIMITED
Dec 2010 - Present
I created Watkinson Website Development LIMITED to provide high-quality website development and to create software that filled a gap in the market and quickly became known as a solutions provider for complex requirements that other providers could not solve.
We have built 3 main WordPress & WooCommerce Plugins that are the only solutions of their kind on the market. These are WooClick Vendor, WooClick Affiliate and WooSub. We have worked with very large clients such as Fila and the parent company of Rockstar Games.
Smart Media Pro & Business Web Dev
2008 - 2011
Before staring Smart Media Pro and Business Web Dev, I had spent a few years flipping businesses. I would buy in online businesses that had a good idea but had not been marketed or designed as well as they could have been. I would make positive changes, drastically increase sales and then sell the businesses on.
Smart Media Pro and Business Web Dev were the first businesses that I started from scratch with the intention of building both businesses before selling them on. The products I built were WordPress Plugins which included WP-Member, Coupon Code lite, Coupon Code Elite, Social Gateway, Snip It and Content Timeout.
The businesses and products were sold in 2011 as I had started Watkinson Website Development LIMITED in 2010 and wanted to focus on a business that I would not flip and sell on.
BT Vision Engineer Technical Support
2007 - 2008
I was hired by British Telecom to provide Technical Support to BT Vision Engineers. At the time, BT Vision had just been launched and was a cutting edge TV streaming service.
Working with managers, I was responsible for creating interactive troubleshooting and diagnosis intranet webpages for staff as well as providing technical support to engineers, specializing in complex issues that Level 1 & 2 technical support had been unable to solve.
