Spudnik! Give your Ning lift off ...

I run a Ning site for lawyers and help over 40 clients with their Ning communities.

I am available to hire if you want a clean, modern looking Ning site. I specialise in business/professional, educational and magazine style sites.

You can check out my portfolio, services and rates here.

I've also got a Ning 3.0 Tips forum here.

Here are some bespoke projects I've worked on:

I am also available on retainer if you need someone to help run your site.

Here's what I do:
  • Ning network design using Design Studio and CSS.
  • Bespoke 'pages' e.g. this 'About' page.)
  • jQuery - make your network do things it doesn't do 'out-of-the-box'.
  • Graphic design including logos, sliders and icons.
  • Best practice advice on running your network (subjective, I know, but I'll assist if asked).

Here's what I don't do:
  • Ning API
  • Widgets or Apps.

Please message me here on Creators for pricing etc. Cheers, SP.

Here are some of the tips I've posted on Creators.

They're free for you to plunder and use to your heart's content.

Feel free to spoon me with your love in return.

Hello - and huge apologies for the delay in replying! It would be great to welcome you to Bowes Park! I have today just completed our weekly e-mail update to members ... which I think is based on your Broadcast Message template! Thank You.

The Bowes and Bounds Website is a volunteer project (run in what is laughingly called my "spare time") but is a warm and friendly community - to which you would be welcomed.

Best Wishes
