Ways I can help your business

Trained in the requirements of SEO, I programmed websites according to search engine quality guidelines.

I take care of on-page and off-page search engine optimisation.

I am an expert in WordPress - a content management system from which you can update a website.

I customise WordPress themes or create brilliant HTML sites using the latest framework.

About me, Kelly Drewett

It all started in the UK, in a small village in Oxfordshire where I was brought up. I'm a true village girl at heart, and I now live in an even smaller village in the French Alps.

As one of the original digital nomads, I've spent a lot of time in Canada and travelled the United States, Asia and all-over western Europe. My travelling background helps me to understand all sorts of cultures and people.

You can often find me close to mountains, where there is a seasonal transition of all age groups. I am the geek who snowboards, bikes and hikes (and none particularly well but it makes Instagram more interesting).

My love for conversation and language helps my diligence toward writing for search engines.

Why? Because Google feeds on quality content. And search engines serve people.

Whether your business is B2B or B2C everyone that reads is human.

I help to provide and write enticing websites that sell your product.

A career as a website designer

Back in the days when the internet first became accessible for business, I was 17. I had a job in Oxford in digital illustration but fully intended to go back into education the following year.

A local couple had started a small web design firm. They offered to train me in web design in return for work and little pay.

I already had an interest in computers and design so I snapped up the opportunity. I loved it, and in no time, I took the position of leading website designer.

Unfortunately, the little pay continued for far too long. So, just before my 20th birthday, I started my own website design company.

I worked from my mum’s computer until I saved enough money to buy my own.

Kelly Drewett, background

My name is Kelly. I was born in Oxford UK and lived in a beautiful village in the Cotswolds, where I started freelancing in web design.

In 2000, I started my own company, called Kaydee Web Design. Now the business is known as Kaydee Web.

20 years later and after a lot of world travelling I divide my time between the Rhône-Alpes, France and Oxfordshire in the UK.

The beginning

I had ups and downs and made mistakes. I learned a lot about small businesses and entrepreneurs.

I successfully worked in the Oxfordshire area for 12 years and set up an office in the centre of Witney.

Around the time that WiFi became readily available anywhere and everywhere, there also came a period of my life when I had no ties.

I realised I could travel as I worked, so that's what I did.

Travelling and working

First I visited my sister in Canada. I then travelled a large portion of North America in a Buick named Hank.

I lived in Canada and travelled the US lots - working day to day on my computer in motels.

When Hank finally packed in (sad face), I used buses and I couchsurfed.

I sought out a place in the Rockies each winter for ski seasons. I did one season in Fernie and one in Kicking Horse.

Travelling whilst working in Europe

After exhausting my visitors visa it was time to return home to Oxford. But not for long.

Lynn, a New Zealand friend I met in Canada, joined me for a summer campervan trip through western Europe.

We travelled for five months in my high-top VW camper van, Ellis. Naming vehicles seems to be a ritual.

We had a fantastic summer visiting different countries, during which I discovered a genuine interest in other cultures.

Travelling whilst working in Europe

The following winter I drove to Les Arcs in the French Alps to find a place to spend the winter. For snow of course.

There I met my husband, Ben, who is coincidentally also a web developer. We could both manage our jobs remotely, which meant we could travel.

The first summer, we got to know France, Italy and Croatia, using Ellis the camper van as a home and office, always returning to the French Alps.

Travelling whilst working in Asia

After some rest and recovery, we hit southeast Asia. We travelled with backpacks, our home offices strapped to our fronts.

That winter we settled near the mountains in Hakuba Goryu, Japan.

We rented a maisonette from which we could snowboard and ski. The extra bedroom was used as an office.

Our life in France

Travelling whilst working is wonderful, but takes dedication. So for now, no more long trips. Ben and I now live in the French Alps with a pretty good work-life balance.

We created an office space for ourselves in which we concentrate on our individual businesses, train online and generally geek out!

This is where I spend much of my time studying website programming, search engine optimisation and content writing.
