Our Story

We build websites for small business owners who want to grow their business and who need a website that matches their ambitions.

There’s something about small businesses – from the ideas, to the thrill of making each sale, to the joy of seeing the positive impact you’ve made.  Building a successful business isn’t just about having a great product or service.  It’s also not about being available 24/7.  You need to have a strong online presence that reflects your brand and values and that brings in clients.

That’s where we come in.  As a website designer we don’t just see your website as a piece of IT.  We understand your website is a crucial marketing tool that needs to fit into your broader marketing and business strategy.  One that works for you.

That’s why, when you work with us, we take the time to learn about your business, your clients, and your plans for growth. So we can help you elevate your business from where it is to where you want it to be … and beyond.

We’re not here to build a website and then disappear. We’re here for the long haul, supporting you and your business every step of the way. In fact, over 95% of our clients continue to work with us each year.

I’m Marie, founder of Beyond the Kitchen Table

I’m a mum, wife, daughter, friend and owner of a mischievous dog.  I understand the juggle that comes with running a business around other responsibilities.  We don’t have all the time in the world.  That’s why I am passionate about supporting entrepreneurs build successful businesses that support the life they want to have.

I have a degree in business and finance and a 19 year career in banking, which have given me the marketing and business skills fundamental to what I do now.

I’d always wanted to run my own business and, after leaving my corporate job, I set up a business promoting other local, small businesses online. I employed a local design agency to build my website but it was a slow (and expensive) process. I didn’t feel valued or understood. And the resulting website was not appropriate to my needs.

That’s why I started Beyond the Kitchen Table.  To ensure small businesses get the right kind of website to support their business ambitions, without an eye watering price tag or having to understand tech speak.

Today, as Beyond the Kitchen Table, we build websites that are designed for your business and your business only.   We only build websites for small businesses so you don’t get pushed down the priority list when a bigger business comes along.

Our websites are high-converting and deliver an effective and impressive client experience, attracting the right kind of customer for your business. And, just as importantly, we offer an efficient and pain free website building process. So you can focus on what matters most – growing your business.

So if you’re ready to take your business to the next level, contact me. I can’t wait to meet you and hear your story.

“We found it very easy to convey our ideas to Marie and if we had any changes they were quickly acted upon.  Marie made the whole process stress free and her input was invaluable.  It was a pleasure to work with her.”

“Having recently worked with Beyond the Kitchen Table on my rebranded website I can honestly say the experience was amazing for the price.  Not only did they spend considerable time understanding the look and feel I wanted to create, but they went over and above on creating it.”

“As a start up micro business I had no idea where to begin – Marie has held my hand through the whole process, answered all my daft questions with patience and has been hugely supportive.  I now have a clear idea of my goals and a wonderful website.”
