Website Development
We don't rope you into any PPC campaigns from the get go! We research your site's history, review its code and monitor your competitors to devise a long term solution that will help you compete and target the customers who are looking for you most.

The basic idea behind SEO centres on keywords. Visitors go to search engines and type in queries that use specific keywords. The search engine then makes connections between this search query and websites they have indexed, displaying the most relevant pages.

SEO techniques are used by site owners to make stronger connections between their site and its relevant keywords. When successful, the site will appear higher in the search engine for these specific search queries. While it might seem like the best idea would be to simply pile as many keywords into a site as possible, the search engines are smarter than that. In addition, keywords used on-site are only one part of the complex equation used to determine site relevance. Without the right balance of other important parts of SEO, a site will not find much benefit from simply adding more keywords and content.

We offer a range of SEO packages ranging from Social Media Manipulation to Secure Link Building. Get in touch today for a free review of your website. Once we have analysed your site's current data we can then advise you on the best way forward and give an honest estimation on results.

As usability designers we create your website with functionality in mind. It's important that the design enhances your products or services and is an asset to your brand, rather than a distraction from it.

Alistair Reid ~ Well we needed someone to keep us in check! Alistair is our accounts manager and occasional copywriter. His main role is to maintain an overview of the financial side of things, and making sure the numbers add up.

Alistair’s main role is as an independent solicitor-advocate and he has worked for some of the leading practices in the north west. By day he runs crown court trials, and by night he makes the tea and keeps tabs on what the rest of us have been working on.

Alistair is a practicing solicitor, which fills his time away from Pixel most days.

“I agree with Emma she does talk far too much. That means I tend to leave our creative team to what they do best while I quietly make sure that the business side of things run smoothly.“

Emma Council ~ Since joining the team, Emma has shown that a bubbly outgoing attitude can hide a multitude of skills in copywriting for SEO. She has a degree in business studies, a national vocational certificate in business and even studied law for 2 years. Her main experience however comes from working with Vertex, one of the leading bodies of medical research in the UK. She has written for their data magazine, newsletters and internal communications boosting their online presence, whilst maintaining professional, targeted articles.

Emma can usually be found in the presence of Oreos, often complaining that there aren’t enough. These are now a staple foodstuff in the office, or the union of Emma may go on strike!

“I talk far too much, thats probably why I find copywriting so interesting… I can waffle on for hours about how great I am. It just requires a bit of research, the right hat and our clients are sorted!”

Jason Dexter ~ Jason prides himself on providing amazing SEO results with an efficient turn around. Armed with extensive knowledge and experience, Jason has ensured he has stayed at the very forefront of the search market.

Jason has worked with many companies from all over the world, large and small. In addition to his excellent SEO abilities it is Jasons approachable and helpful personality which allows clients to feel confident in recommending Jason to others.

“Whether you're looking to rank a website for your local flower shop, or want to tap into national and international markets, I'll treat your site as a priority and provide the very best service.“

Leanne Borrowman ~ With over 10 years working in the web design sector, Leanne is a WordPress usability and accessibility expert. Fundamental flaws with many websites arise out of how a website directs its users and how it performs across different platforms, such as tablets and mobiles. These are potential problems Leanne considers with every website she creates, and she loves the challenge of designing within optimisation boundaries.

Coming from Liverpool, Leanne has naturally picked up the gift of the gab, although without the strong accent! She is very client oriented and enjoys the benefits of a close client relationship.

“I like to build websites that give clients the confidence to take control and call their own. A common issue within this very design driven industry are graphic designers pushing their ideals over the clients’. I create websites based around my customers’ preferences and not my own.”

Our team consists of usability, design and WordPress development experts, copywriting and SEO gurus. We cover it all!
