About Clear Moon Studio

Too often a business owner or marketer can’t easily update their website or use it to meet their goals. They can feel frustrated or confused about what to do next to make progress in having their site generate leads or sales.

We believe everyone deserves proper web expertise and services designed to grow their business.

We understand running a business or marketing team is stressful and that the last thing you should be trying to do is be a web designer, graphic designer, content writing expert and digital marketing pro… all full-time jobs.

For over 20 years, we’ve been helping business owners and marketing managers develop, manage and market websites that get results.

Schedule a call with us today so you can stop paying for something that brings you little return on your investment and instead gives you a professional website designed to attract and convert visitors, leaving you confident and happy about your website appearance, functionality and messaging.

John Sharkey

Founder, Web and Digital Marketing Consultant

I’ve spent years over 20 years working on websites, as a web manager for 3 universities and in corporate environments managing web projects. I dealt with agencies that meant well but were sometimes ineffective, overpriced or sometimes even both. This led me to learn web design and SEO, find needed solutions and start my own business in 2010.

Since then I’ve joined numerous web design and marketing communities where I both contribute to and stay up to date on the latest techniques in web design and SEO that drive results. I’ve learned how to assess the dizzying array of offerings available to find solutions and strategies that increase customer activity.

I strive to provide offerings that help business owners and marketers make their goals and dreams a reality. I do this as I believe your website is THE best resource you have to market your business, and you deserve to have one you feel good about and that generates great ROI.

How we’re different

When looking for web design and development services, you typically have one of two options:

1) Freelancer or 2) Big agency

Freelancers or “one-man shops” are often overworked, overwhelmed and hard to get a hold of since they’re wearing every hat. With an agency, you’ll feel like a number on a spreadsheet and will undoubtedly see turnover in your contacts throughout the process. We’re right in the sweet spot.

Our values

Maximising

We seek to transform something strong into something superb. We focus on our strengths to bring out excellence. If we aren’t good at it, we partner with those that are. We also find what you are best at and help that blossom.

Responsive

We aim for service excellence and don’t like to keep you waiting. If we are too busy to take action swiftly, we do our best to at least let you know so you know what to expect.

Connectedness

We know we are all connected to each other and all things. We believe organisational goals can be achieved not at the expense of others or the planet; but through promoting diversity, understanding differing views and working towards the betterment of all. We work off green energy at our office and partner with those that share this value, such as our SiteGround web hosting data centres in the UK and US that are 100% green.

Positivity

Our glass is always half full. We get excited about helping you achieve your goals and hope our “can do” spirit spreads to you. We like measuring and celebrating your achievements. Technology can be boring and frustrating so we keep things light and accept the challenges with good humour.

Empathy

We are patient and listen. We pick up the unsaid importance of things through sensing emotion and seeing through others’ eyes to understand their perspective. We hear the unvoiced questions and anticipate needs. We aim to understand your needs and those of your customers/audience at this deeper level.

Balance

We don’t rush things. We don’t take you to the next level until we have mastered the level you are on. We don’t want to see you fall and don’t overlook any aspect of a project. We believe Mr. Miyagi said it best… “Better learn balance. Balance is key. Balance good, karate good. Everything good. Balance bad, better pack up, go home…” and “First learn stand, then learn fly. Nature rule Daniel son, not mine.”
