Rated: 2.4 Out Of 5 – Bronze Badge Award

Steve Sims is a sole trader based in Devon and specialises in building and maintaining websites using the WordPress Content Management System. His site is very open about fact he works freelance which our team found very refreshing.

In addition to designing and maintaining websites, Steve also creates mobile apps and provides SEO services. Our team noticed he is a certified Google partner, adding to our impression that he has significant skills in this area.

However, we felt that several websites designed and created by Steve Sims felt quite dated and almost basic. In addition we spoke at length about our ‘Test Project’ and were left with several concerns, which are the main reason we’ve awarded Steve a Bronze Badge Award.

While great interest was shown in the idea we proposed, we were never asked about the financial side of our ‘business’ which meant the quote we received was far in excess of what would be viable and provide any kind of return on the investment.
