sandra ciminelli 3Hi, I’m Sandra Ciminelli, Web Designer/Developer and owner/manager of ACT Websites.

ACT Websites is a Canberra based business aiming to provide Australians with affordable quality WordPress websites & services.

Before ACT Websites was formed I noticed that affordable web development seemed to be out of reach for small business owners who are after a professional presence online.  I hope to fill that void by providing quality work to represent your business online.  Working from home enables me to keep prices low & my rates are very reasonable.

After being a full time mum for almost six years I decided to retrain myself in something that would be really enjoyable. Initially the break down was either to study IT or something that was going to enable me to be creative. I was already a touch typist with an interest in web and graphic design so I enrolled in CMA Training in Watson ACT attaining a Certificate IV in Information Technology (Multimedia) (ICA40805) in 2010.

Later I started a Australian Government Traineeship to become a Systems Tester where I found myself excelling in Html and CSS.

In September 2013 I began working as a Webmaster for aifc where I learned WordPress on the Job and discovered that really enjoyed it.   A year later in-house training was provided by Annette Spurr of Blue Box Media for me to learn how to blog by creating, curating, recording, aggregating and distilling blogs to our website and on social media.  Annette taught me the benefits of blogging and how using keyword rich content affects SEO. I record and maintain all of our social media activity. I currently work for aifc on a part-time basis. (one full day per week and  when I’m called in to relief admin/reception). I manage social media using Facebook LinkedIn, YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter & Google Plus and design their headers, banners and memes.

I studied and passed a Hootsuite Podium Social Media Marketing course. The certificate can be viewed online. Social Media Cert Hootsuite Podium 10085457
