We are husband and wife team Jeremy Rwakaara (Uganda) and Natalie Brown (Canada). We’re happy to meet you and help you with your online business needs!
Born into an entrepreneurial home, I come from a long history of being involved in the small business world. I started working in my father’s business from the tender age of 8 and have been involved in entrepreneurial efforts since that time. I attended University in Canada for my undergraduate degree and then had the chance to attend College in the Silicon Valley in California during the late 90s. During this time I got involved in the arts and entertainment sector as a musician and discovered my love for web design in San Francisco during the ‘dot com boom’. After the ‘bust’ I moved on to work with a boutique marketing firm in the Maryland / Washington, DC region of the United States for 8 years. After moving back to my homeland of Canada in 2009, I resolved to start a niche company focused on small businesses.
When my husband and I moved to Uganda in 2016 we began to consult with local businesses and entrepreneurs, and we observed that there is a demand for modern, fresh, clean, mobile responsive design at an affordable cost for local businesses, thus Uganda Website Design was born.
My focus areas are: website design, graphic design, video and photo editing and social media strategy implementation.
I have spent most of my life in the music business as a music producer, manager, writer, engineer, author and lecturer. The genesis of coming to work in the internet technology realm was from my interactions with music artists all over the United States. In 2001 my wife and I founded our US company MBSTIA to help artists transition into the digital realm. We spoke at seminars and conferences all over the USA teaching them how to embrace digital technology to promote themselves. As we put on workshops and consulted with artists, we realized that many of them lacked the marketing materials necessary to promote themselves and decided this was a great niche for us to step into and take our skills to help others.
In 2006, after some company re-structuring, MBSTIA emerged as a multi-service company providing website development, customized web and print graphic design, social media promotion/strategy and marketing consulting. In 2009 we opened our Canadian sister company Small Business Website Canada to help businesses in the Canadian market and in 2017 we were proud to bring our skill sets, unique strategies and technology to my home country of Uganda.
My focus areas are: branding strategy, business strategy, content strategy, copywriting, search engine optimisation, search engine marketing, PPC, marketing strategy (offline/online) and campaign design.
