How Get South Web Design started

For many years we produced a travel guidebook for Argentina, Chile & Uruguay called “Get South”.  Somebody designed a website for us but it was basic, it was difficult to change content, it looked old-fashioned …  and worse, it got hacked due to the use of old software.

I, Jimmy, was so fed up with it.  Why wasn’t I able to make changes myself? Why didn’t the web designer ever reach out to us to make changes, to modernise and improve it? And shouldn’t a website owner have somebody to go to if needed, have help and support?

I wanted to be able to change the content myself, to improve the website, to keep on growing …  So I started to study, I looked for the right system to use and started out.

At first, I just used my knowledge for our own projects, but my skills kept on improving. So we started doing websites for other people.

We made 21 editions in total. 100.000 copies each!

Now, we offer WordPress websites and extra services for any business sector.  The focus is always on delivering a well-designed website that converts visitors into clients.  But there is more.  It’s important that you have the ability to do (minor) changes yourself in an easy and straightforward way, just with our help and some common sense.  And we will keep all the software up-to-date and help you to do the changes, to improve your website and to add more content.

A website is like setting up a restaurant, it doesn’t stop with making it look pretty and opening its doors.  Once the restaurant is ready to open its doors, the real job starts: marketing, sales, maintenance, changes, setting goals, improvements, new services, problem solving … We can do this  together as a team, or you can even let us do these difficult tasks. 

The entire world searches on the internet!

Our goal is to make you a website and deliver you services that make your business thrive.  People reach out to you now from their couch playing on their computer or mobile device and from all over the world these days and your website and online presence is the face of your business.  We put the focus on the value you offer and on what sets your company apart.  We’ll take care of all the technical stuff so that you can focus on your clients and service!

We also have years of experience in tourism and, if you have a tourism or hospitality business, then you will benefit extra of our expertise in the branche.  We put this knowledge & experience at your disposal.  The tourism & hospitality sector is a tough sector, with lots of competition and a few big players that (try to) monopolize the market.  There will be other web designers that can make you a pretty website, but they won’t have the knowledge to take your website, but also your entire business, to the next level because growing your tourism and hospitality business depends of conversion of clients via different channels, market knowledge & experience, marketing presence, branding, language skills, both online as offline experience, …
