Kettering company named Best New Business at national award ceremony

One Day Web, a Kettering-based business which specialises in creating entire websites in a day for its clients, has been named Best New Business at the National Entrepreneur Awards.

Organised by the Entrepreneurs Circle, the awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of entrepreneurs across the UK.

Established in April 2016, One Day Web won the Best New Business title after being identified as a company who has ‘achieved notable results’, ‘demonstrated great understanding of their market’, ‘provides fab customer service’ and ‘is set to soar into 2018 and beyond’.

One Day Web is run by directors Jamie Rae and Simon Langham, two Kettering born school friends who reconnected through business after separately establishing career success in the video production and web development sectors respectively. They hit upon the idea of working together to build websites – complete with video and photographic content – for clients in a single day. They formed One Day Web and now work from their studio on Market Place in Kettering, inviting clients to join them for a collaborative experience that ends with the launch of a brand new website and a champagne celebration.

Simon said: “Our innovation came through identifying a massive pain point for many business owners and realising we could take something that typically takes months and put the right systems in place to get it done sooner. That, mixed with great customer service, has really seen us grow. Many people think we’re in the website industry, but we’re not –  we’re in the customer service industry. Happy clients are our lifeblood and without their desire for change in a dated industry, we couldn’t operate.”

Jamie added: “Our journey as a business over the first year was tough. We were selling something that had never been seen before in the web marketplace which led some people to see it as a gimmick or an impossible task that we would not be able to deliver on.

“Winning this award, despite fierce competition from entrepreneurs all over the UK, means a lot and is a great end to a fantastic year for us. Our company motto is ‘Get It Done’ and we’re building a whole business on efficiency with an incredible team to support our vision.”
