Penny Adams, Director at Shake and Speare, said: "We've always worked to the idea that business owners should make the most of everything at their disposal and those businesses include those working in the trades. We saw that there was a huge number of trades not making the most of an online presence or not having one at all so we decided to focus our efforts on encouraging and helping them get online and reap the rewards.
"Professionally crafted, bespoke websites aren't always cheap and with the coronavirus crisis everyone is feeling the pinch. But there's no better a time to get your presence known online. This is an opportunity to get yourself in the best possible position for when this is all over. That's why we're offering everyone in the trades a completely free one page website including one year of hosting. It won't appear magically at spot one on Google, but it's a start that you can point customers to, when this is all over we can talk about how we get businesses higher up."
