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 by 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 businesses and organisations can have an internet presence without having to break the bank and overburden their time constraints.
Now with four kids aged from 9 through to (almost) 19, it can be a juggle but I love it and that’s why I do it. I work around my family commitments – as much as I try to stick to traditional “business hours” this isn’t always the case. I aim for life balance integration – I may not always answer my phone or reply to an email straight away, but I will respond. This flexibility works well with many of my clients who also need to manage their working life with their family life. Being an avid sports nut, I am now focussing on websites and tech support for sports clubs and sports organisations.
