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 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 four kids 12 & under, 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 10pm. This flexibility works well with many of my clients who also need to manage their working life with their family life.
