Montie was born out of trying to understand the stigma that surrounded web development. We spoke to everyone and anyone we could and found the same words coming up over and over: price, trust, time, understanding. The strange thing was that each of the problems had little to do with the product and everything to do with the process, yet it was the end product that all the players in the market were using to distinguish themselves.
When it comes down to it there are really only two variations when it comes to process in the entire web development industry: building it yourself (DIY) and working with a web developer or agency.
Like any company looking to enter a highly competitive market, we wanted to be the disruption; the solution in an industry that is crying for something new… So we eliminated all the pitfalls and harnessed all the strengths of each process and created Montie.
Montie essentially sits between a DIY solution and a web developer. We are able to harness the cost-effective template strategy of a DIY solution and add on the expertise provided by a web developer or agency without affecting the price. Best of all, our business model lets us bring back the trust element that so many agencies accidentally eliminate by over-charging, disappearing or sourcing overseas content.
And what better way is there to represent all of that, than in a single name – Montie.
To empower individuals to grow their businesses in the digital world by creating smart and effective digital solutions using a collaborative, yet simple process.
We create honest, open, and trusting relationships with our clients
We empower our clients to grow their business and themselves as individuals. We believe knowledge is power in such a rapidly changing digital world.
Every choice, design piece, every word and every action has in-built ‘smarts’ to deliver your individual solution.
In-built ‘smarts’ make everything simple yet powerful.
Amy started Montie to offer Small Businesses a unique website solution that was affordable, simple and effective at generating leads and sales. Something that combined the flexibility and affordability of a DIY system and the expertise and support of working with a web developer or agency.
This gap was identified when Amy started Lumos Marketing in 2013, a custom website design and marketing consulting company that offered transparent custom website design and marketing solutions to small and medium sized businesses in Western Australia.
After graduating from the University of Western Australia with Bachelor Degrees in Commerce and Arts (Communication Studies), Amy set out to learn as much as she could about Content Marketing, website design and online marketing techniques so that she could bridge the gaps between university fundamentals, and the current marketing landscape.
Starting work part time for the Perth Motorplex in 2011 as social media co-ordinator, Amy cultivated a passion for online marketing and built Lumos Marketing through creating lasting, trustworthy customer relationships and working closely with business owners and managers to implement marketing effective strategies that help achieve their business goals.
Now with Montie – Amy hopes to bring the same passion to her clients that are looking for guidance, support and most importantly, an affordable and simple website solution.
