Q) Do I really need a website?
Q) I’m an entrepreneur / Small business owner how can you help me?
A) We are so glad you asked! We can help you in so many ways, in fact helping entrepreneurs is a bit of a specialty of ours!
We can help you get an amazing website online, one that not only looks great, but is setup to help you grow your brand online.
We can help you get your website ranking in the search engine so your ideal customers can find what they are searching for – You!
We also create pretty amazing logo’s and animator videos as well.
Q) How much experience do you have?
A) We have been in this game a while now, we started when our daughter was born and she will be 10 this year. So long enough to know what works and what doesn’t.
We are also obsessed with all things WordPress and marketing so that you are always ahead of the game!
We have the experience of not just website design and SEO but we are both online marketers and know what your website needs to do and not just what it needs to look like.
Q) What is SEO?
A) SEO stands for search engine optimisation and it’s the process of getting your website ranked for certain search terms, within the pages of search engines like Google.
Think about it, you probably “googled” something today. We help by making sure YOU are what your ideal customer finds the next time they Google something.
Q) Glasgow Web Geek? Does that mean you only work with businesses in Glasgow?
A) No, not at all. Glasgow is where are from and we are very proud of that fact, hence the name but we have clients from all over the world.
We feel very blessed to have worked with entrepreneurs in Scotland and the rest of the UK & Ireland as well in the USA, Canada, Europe and even Australia.
Q) Both of you are called Leadbetter, what’s the connection?
A) Well spotted, we are married, have been since 2004 and since that day have been blessed with not only 1 but 2 little bundles of joy.
Our daughter will be 10 this year and our son just turned 7. They were the driving force behind our business initially because we both wanted to be home more when they were little. (our previous corporate jobs meant a lot of time away from home.)
Now they are our driving force as it turns out kids are really expensive! Who knew …..? Thankfully not only do we love our little rugrats to pieces but we also love what we do.
We live just outside of Glasgow, with the 2 kids, a crazy dog and a really grumpy budgie. (in our house the staffy won’t bite you but the budgie probably will)
We love spending time together, watching movies, reading books, playing board games and enjoying this beautiful country we live in.
Marion loves upcyling furniture and can normally be found with a paintbrush in hand going to work on a piece of furniture she found in a second hand shop (she loves upcycling your online marketing as well she has a blog just on that very subject)
Allan loves cooking, Star Wars and watching football (soccer for our American friends).
Now for the awkward 3rd person bio part (if your website doesn’t have one yet it should have!)

When not feeling pretentious talking about herself in the 3rd person or updating her blog and Facebook page with loads of free training and great content. Marion can be found hanging out with her favourite people ie her hubby and kids in (not so) sunny Scotland.
Watching movies, reading books, painting furniture and travelling as family to let her kids see that there is a big old world out there that they have to go explore.
