eRetail Solutions Announces New Owners

On this page:


From James Lindsay, owner & manager of e-Retail Solutions

After many years running e-Retail Solutions, I recently decided it was time for a new phase in my life and set about looking for a suitably experienced new owner for the business. For me it was more than just selling the business – I needed to make sure our clients only benefited from any change in ownership and that the business can continue to thrive.

I am pleased to announce I have found that new owner and that e-Retail Solutions is now under new management!

The new owner is Colby Leaman, a dedicated, friendly professional who brings to the business 15+ years experience in web development and digital marketing. Colby also owns and operates Drumbeat Digital, a full service digital agency based in Coolum, QLD with an established national client base.

I will continue to support and work with Colby over the coming months to ensure e-Retail Solutions clients and the services we offer only benefit from this exciting transition.

What This Means For You, In a Nutshell

The change in ownership means:

  1. No change to your services,
  2. No change to your fees,
  3. A dedicated and experienced team available to support you.
  4. Plans to further improve eRetail services.
Please update your payment details for eRetail. New bank details are below:
  • Name: eRetail Solutions
  • BSB: 086131
  • Account: 85251 8192

Sincerely Yours,

James Lindsay

The New eRetail Team

About Colby

Originally from Sydney via Perth, we moved to the Sunshine Coast a little over a year ago. I’m 48, married with two young daughters and am a keen musician and surfer when I’m not working.

My Digital Experience

At uni I completed a business degree and an MBA, both with majors in marketing. Following a 10 year career as a marketing consultant, I then established Drumbeat Digital 15 years ago to provide a range of web development and digital marketing services. I’m both an experienced developer and digital marketer.

eRetail & Drumbeat

eRetail will join Drumbeat at our Coolum offices (in the Coolum Industrial Park) where we will share staff and other resources but still remain separate businesses with distinct focuses as follows:

  • eRetail: clever & affordable digital solutions for small and medium business.
  • Drumbeat: development, hosting & marketing for government, agency & larger corporate clients.

There will be a number of benefits for our eRetail clients from this setup.

Making Sure This Works For You

My first priority in taking ownership of e-Retail Solutions will be to ensure there’s no issues with your services and importantly, to get to know you and your business. James will assist me over the coming months to make sure this is a smooth and positive transition for you. If you have any issues or concerns please be sure to let me know and I’ll fix them straight away.

We Aim to Help You Even More

Once we’re sure that everything is running smoothly, we’re looking forward to bringing a range of new ideas and opportunities to your business, including:

  • New web site improvement opportunities
  • Optimised web & email hosting security & performance
  • Fully managed WordPress & CS Cart hosting
  • Expanded SEO campaigns
  • Search, display and social media advertising campaigns
  • Web analytics & reporting

We will keep you updated on these over the coming months.
