Web Babble is a home-based business located in Bundoora, Melbourne, specialising in simple, effective, budget-friendly websites for small businesses and community organisations. I 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 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 businesses can have an internet presence without having to break their bank and overburden their time constraints.
Now with four kids aged from 7 through to 17, it can be a juggle but I love it and that’s why I do it. I work around my family commitments and understand the needs of fellow business mums. As much as I try to stick to traditional “business hours” this isn’t always the case, and it’s not unusual for me to be working on a website at 10 pm. This flexibility works well with many of my clients who also need to manage their working life with their family life.
