Hi, I am Jayne and Imajayne [ih-maj-in] is my home based business in Roleystone. My primary focus is on amazing Web Design and customer satisfaction.
My History, Education and Training
I am a trained Music Specialist and studied clarinet, piano, singing and classroom teaching at the ‘Conservatorium of Music’ in Western Australia (now known as the ‘Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts’, WAAPA). I have taught in a variety of government and non-government schools in Perth and was promoted to a leadership position shortly after I graduated because of my hard work, dedication, professionalism and big-picture thinking.
In 2005 I was asked to join the curriculum development team for Music at the Curriculum Council (now known as the ‘School Curriculum and Standards Authority’, SCASA) and soon after became the Project Manager for the WACE (Western Australian Certificate of Education) Music Course. This was a high profile position for Music Education in Western Australia and was a fantastic professional opportunity. This position then lead to sessional work at the University of Western Australia (UWA) lecturing and mentoring Music Education undergraduate students.
In 2007 I registered my business ‘Cheshire’s Creations’ where I explored my creative interests and started a handmade cardmaking and invitation hobby business. This quickly grew and it wasn’t long before I decided that I needed a website called Stamps and Craft. It took a few attempts before I decided that I needed to set up an eCommerce store to sell my card creations, stamps and papercrafting supplies. I was also teaching papercraft classes and running workshops.
I started attending various website courses, with the most significant one focusing on many strategies including Online Marketing, Affiliate Marketing, SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), SMM (Social Media Marketing), Copywriting, PPC (Pay-Per-Click) Advertising, Email Marketing and Digital Product Creation. I spent the next two years investing in numerous web design courses and developing a network of websites which I am now using as part of the SEO strategy with my clients. I had the opportunity to work as a web developer and online marketing mentor and in 2011 started a web design business called ‘Creative Web Design and Hosting’.
In 2013 I registered my new business name Imajayne [ih-maj-in] which offers a full marketing service to small businesses, currently focusing on Web Design and Online Marketing.
Home based business can have a negative stigma attached to them, but for me it gives me flexibility to meet with clients when it is convenient for them, which is quite often not during business hours and because I do not pay for office space rent, I do not have to pass on that additional cost.
I find ‘selling myself’ hard because I do not want to come across as being ‘big-headed’, but I want you to know I am and why you should invest in me. This is my business and my reputation, so its success is very important to me. I do like to talk a lot, but also listen and like to read and research things. I also really like networking, getting to know people and building community. I would like to think that the personal traits that I have for business are:
- Hard Work
- Decision Making
- Big-Picture and ‘Out-Of-The-Box’ thinking
Getting the work done professionally, correct and to my customers satisfaction is my priority. You know your business and the type of customers you work with. I know how the internet works, web browsing psychology, search engine algorithms and technical coding language. There are components of your web-design which I outsource to specially chosen experts to ensure
How am I different? Well, that is a hard question to answer because there are a lot of companies/web designers out there that offer the same services that I do, some are cheaper and some are more expensive. However price is not usually the determining factor when choosing a service. This is what I can offer you:
- Experience in Web Design
- Personal Service
- Common Sense
- Local Knowledge
- Australian Based (Perth, WA)
My Education background gives me the unique perspective of being able to lay out information in a logical and effective manner with the focus on the person visiting the website leading to conversions. My training and constant research in SEO means that I am building websites optimised for the Search Engines using information based on the latest algorithms and case studies. I follow several highly authoritative blogs and are even consulted for my opinion and advice. My training as well as extensive teaching experience and project management means the job will be done right. I will be dedicated to the online success of your business and will work with you and your budget to find creative solutions.
Imajayne has strong roots for big growth. I have spent a lot of time planning the structure and direction that Imajayne is going to grow. Even with my big plans, I am determined that my business stays personal and customer focused. I have a lot of interests, skills and vision. Not everything will come to fruition, but I like to dream! I definitely do not want my business to be a ‘Jack of all trades, master of none’ so growth will only happen when it is right and with the right people.
If you have any questions about the above, or would like to discuss with me how I can help you grow your business, please contact me today.
