Q : Describe your company in 5 words.
A : Ethical, Professional, Focused, Driven, Creative
Q : Where do you see your company in 10 years time?
A : Our business aims are the same now as they have always been: to work with small businesses and develop ideas and technologies to make them work more efficiently. We will continue to help businesses grow by adopting new technologies and practices.
Q : How was your company name chosen?
A : My intention from day 1 was to work WITH businesses - and help them grow (Market - Span). Many people are disparaging about web design being a 'luxury' secondary to their main business. Personally, I believe we are making business solutions akin to software that WILL help your business grow.

A different approach to SEO
Link Building is often misunderstood and is usually associated with a 'links' page - an agreement you have made to have a link to another website if they in turn link back to you. This ultimately takes people away from your site and actually does NOTHING for improving search engine ranking. Expert link building is totally different and here in-lies the problem with getting people to think outside the box with SEO and utilise other options.
SEO is the process of reviving a website to encourage a high page rank within a specific keyword search. There are many articles all offering a multitude of theories on what is most important, but we reckon that a good all round approach works best.
