WordPress, SEO + troubleshooting services

You don’t have time to wrestle with your site and you have enough to do without fiddling with code or researching reasons why you aren’t getting the visitors you want. You know that having an online presence is important and you know that first impressions are lasting ones – what you don’t know is how to achieve the site of your dreams. That’s where I can help!

If you’re looking for a developer with over 11 years experience, who understands what it means to be a blogger, who can turn your dream design into a fully functional live site and who can help you grow your blog through customised guidance, then you’re in the right place.

Want to have the site of your dreams without the headaches? Take a look below at the different ways I can help!

About the developer

Hello and thank you for your interest in working together. I’m Elaine – the owner of XOmisse. I was born and raised in Dublin (Ireland) but I am currently based in London (UK), and I love working with creatives from all over the world.

Education and training
I have a BA (Hons) in Creative Digital Media, but the majority of what I do on a daily basis is self-taught through research, training and experience. During my degree, I got a fantastic insight into a range of creative areas but I quickly realised that web design and development was my thing. I get to use the creative and logical sides of my brain – I love that! 

Industry experience
I’ve been blogging since 2009, it’s a huge passion of mine so I know how important your site is to you. During that time I had the opportunity to intern at a digital marketing, SEO and web design agency working with clients one-on-one to take their businesses to the next level. This sparked my interest in SEO and digital marketing. Once graduated, I decided to start my own business in 2013 and have loved working with other creatives who are passionate about what they do. I have spoken at the Blogtacular conference about blog design (June 2015) and SEO (2018) and gave one-to-one advice at their Creative Genius Bar in 2016 and 2017. I’m also Creative Director and Head of Operations at Blogosphere, a media-tech company rooted in the influencer industry.

Values
I fully support Black Lives Matter, pro-choice and LGBTQIA+. If you don’t share my values, then I may not be the person for you.
