Web Babble is a home-based business located in Bundoora, Melbourne, specialising in simple, effective, budget-friendly websites for small businesses and community organisations. We make it easy for you to get your business online.
The business was "officially" founded in 2009 by Alanna (me!) My background is in Tourism Management and Marketing, with a strong interest in small business and technology. I have previously worked in Marketing for Flag Choice Hotels (now Choice Hotels) and with Tourism Victoria - firstly on the development team for www.visitvictoria.com and then with the Regional Marketing Unit, assisting Regional Tourism Committees with the integration of their marketing with Tourism Victoria's overall marketing efforts. I have also spent several years managing a family owned business and bookkeeping for a few small to mid size clients.
Along the way developed my online skills building a number of websites for friends, committees and other businesses. It got to a point where I decided to make it official! With two young children to care for and a desire to run my own business, I decided to set up Web Babble. My core belief is that small business can have a internet presence without having to break their bank and over burden their time constraints.
Now with three kids eight & under, my husband, Dave, and I have teamed together and run Web Babble as a joint partnership. We are striving for a better life-work balance, so we share the work-load and the family-raising-load.
Dave comes from a strong corporate background, with a mixture of IT, recruitment and project management experience. He decided to take a break from the corporate world just before the arrival of our third little bundle of joy. At the moment Dave is the primary carer, helping out with the "grunt" work on the websites, and blogging away on TackleNappy and Aussie Daddy Bloggers.
