Steve has impressed us with his speed of thought and practical advice which not only delivered but was easy to communicate to senior management and IT teams.

We worked with Steve for over a year on the development of our content management driven website. His knowledge of applications, technologies and ways to add real value to our web presence has been invaluable and his search engine optimisation advice has had a major impact on the performance of our site. We have benefited from an incredible improvement in the performance of our site in response to generic search terms around our product categories and traffic to our site has increased 120% since Steve began working with us. I’d recommend Steve to anyone who needs honest, impartial and above all, results-based SEO consultancy.
