Why we started Berrry?
At Freedom Studios we pride ourselves in not bamboozling our clients with clever speech or building websites that nobody can manage. Because of our business ethic in helping clients to manage their websites themselves, we began with building WordPress websites, but noticed that only a portion of our target market could afford Custom Designed WordPress sites, we then made it a little easier and affordable for our clients bringing clients the option of setting up Premium WordPress Themes sourced from reputable Theme suppliers.
We still noticed that a percentage of our market was not being catered for, namely small businesses, entrepreneurs & non-profit organizations in South Africa. Now in partnering with a reputable company in the United Kingdom, we are now the first in Africa and South Africa to bring Berrry, a powerful website builder platform to the South African Market. We can now proudly say that we do now cater for all types of South African businesses, from the smallest entrepreneur to large corporations.
