History

Prior to starting Leslie Tech Digital, I worked at the Placencia Tourism Center (my first job out of college).

Here I learned about (and fell in love with) web design and marketing.

After leaving the PTC I went and started managing our family business - Tarpon Caye Fishing Lodge - as well as open the very first computer/tech business in my hometown of Placencia, with a focus on web design and computer repair.

I came to realize a recurring theme among most tourism business owners in Belize: they either did not have a website or had a website that was several years old, and making changes was difficult, impossible, or far too expensive (imagine a tour operator, hotel owner, restaurant operator trying to learn HTML and Javascript).

That wasn’t even the worst of it: all of these sites were gradually becoming, painfully, out-of-date, with no way to stop it!

New technologies would come on the market, but which new feature made it worthwhile building a whole new website for?

 

Something finally clicked…

  • Why should a tourism website need a total rebuild every time a new change comes along?

  • Why would a web designer wait for a client to request certain updates rather than anticipating that need?

  • Why don’t tourism web design agencies have support dedicated to making all those necessary little changes?

  • What happens to a client’s existing website when a web designer learns a new trick to make websites more effective?

My Mission

In 2005 Leslie Tech Digital was born. I hit the ground running with a mission to build great websites for tourism-related businesses that are effective from day 1 and STAY effective in the years that follow.

Wix Certified

I started building websites with Microsoft FrontPage (yikes!), however, when the Wix platform came around, I started using it since it was much quicker to build a client's website, thus cutting costs - I transferred the savings to clients. 

The Wix platform has grown in leaps and bounds and has allowed me to scale my agency without incurring diminishing returns, which translated to us being able to create top quality, professional websites for clients, without significantly increasing my rates.

But, there is more: in 2019 I became Wix Partner.

This is part of an elite group of Wix designers from all over the world, where I can all collaborate (remotely) with other Wix Partners on projects - some designers are specialized in certain areas of the platform.

 

Therefore, if I need assistance with specific design elements, I can tap into the Wix Partner program.

How does this benefit you?

As mentioned before, this allows my agency to scale without having to hire a large staff, office space...and all the additional over-head expenses incurred with such antiquated agency growth...and this translates to you getting a top-quality, professional website without breaking the bank.
