    Mike Loomey

    When I was made redundant from an “Accounts Office Manager” position in 1986, I vowed never to let that happen again and became self-employed.

    I teamed up with a friend, Graham Reece to run Stargazer Discos, a fledgling entertainment agency . Within a matter of months, using my managerial and promotional skills, the company had expanded from just one DJ on its “books” (Graham) to around 30. Shortly afterwards, Graham died unexpectedly, leaving me to run the company on my own.

    Most of our work came from recommendations but we attracted a huge quantity of enquiries from carefully worded, strategically placed ads in Yellow Pages. Eventually however Yellow Pages dominance of the advertising industry faded, to be replaced by the internet.

    Starting in around 2008, I became passionately interested in the process of on-line marketing or S.E.O. (Search Engine Optimisation). I took course after course and devoured any books and info I could find about the process.

    Having successfully applied various SEO strategies to my own very basic website, I took my digital skills to the next level by learning HTML, CSS, Dreamweaver and Photoshop.. Many friends and former DJ employees, were impressed with my designs and my ability to get high search engine ranking positions on Google. Several contracted me to design and optimise sites for them. This lead to more offers of work and 3 in 1 Web Design was born.
