Not only do Bikster design sites we also run 5 very successful Actinic websites to compliment a retail and trade store.
Our first site dates from 1996 and receives annual sales of £0.5m per year with the others being added as demand required.
With 16 years retail experience and 15+ years website knowledge we are in a unique position to help build and develop your website business.
John Higgins : having started coding in BASIC language at college he took home the DOS manual and read it cover to cover over the weekend thereby laying down his love and knowledge of computers. A degree course followed and the year out in industry saw him write a sales costing program for Wimpey Homes.
His first ever website was launched in 1994 as a mess of animated GIF images and scrolling text... this was cutting edge at the time and thankfully a nostalgia free period of the internet. He discovered Actinic in 2003 and has been hooked ever since.
June Higgins : traditionally trained in art and graphic design in an era before computers were mainstream and going on to work for the Department of Health in London and Leeds. She was involved with the launch of the Patient's Charter in 1993.
A degree course in Psychology was followed by a course in creative writing and the establishment of a thriving Ebay business. Her expertise in selling, design and language makes her perfect for design consultation, proof reading, copywriting and website usability studies.
We are lucky enough to be located in North East Derbyshire - right on the edge of the beautiful Peak District.

Our portfolio of clients has grown through word of mouth and recommendations. As an active member of the Actinic Community under the username "Jont" we won the Actinic Community Contributor of the Year 2005 as voted for by other Actinic users grateful for the help and assistance provided in helping sort problems and assist when things go wrong.
We use Actinic to run websites on a daily basis (since 2003) so know it inside out. Our services bring you the security in knowing we use Actinic, we know its foibles and what makes it tick. Bikster are more than happy to use Actinic to run all our websites and would not recommend anything else. In fact - this site was built and is maintained using Actinic v9.
Bikster had 2 of the top 4 Actinic websites as voted for by members of the Actinic Community December 2008... an unprecedented result from a community with over 9,000 members.
At Bikster we concentrate on the design of websites first, foremost and nothing more. We do not sell Actinic. We do not make commision on selling web hosting. You can take our advice safe in the knowledge we are not taking a back-hander for recommending products or services.
Out of the many e-commerce software packages out there why do we use Actinic to power our sites? What makes it so special we are happy to put our names next to it?
The site is looking amazing, I am really pleased with it and much better than I was hoping for. Thanks so much for all your help and input over the past few months the website is looking really good, the best it ever has.
I just don't understand how you can offer such good value, your too nice to be in business!
