Most of our clients find us either through the search engines or from other client recommendations. We have NEVER needed to use paid Internet Advertising or email marketing to market our search engine optimisation services. We rely on natural search engine optimisation to be near the top of the search engine rankings for the keyword phrases that matter (which is not just 'search engine optimisation').
The following are a selection of comments from our website design and internet marketing clients.
"I love the website and am excited to see the increase of interest in my company through it. I would whole hartedly recommend you and have been impressed with your professionalism, efficiency and patience with my technological incompetence. Thank you for a pain free and excellent service."
Jonathan Martin Ward, CareFell, March 2013
"We were launching a new range of thermal roll cage covers and this was a good reason to revamp our website at www.5es.co.uk. Cornish WebServices were recommended to us by a colleague. It wasn't long before we had a much improved web presence and a 15% uplift in sales with some very good quality enquiries. I am pleased to say that Cornish WebServices exceeded expectations and paid for themselves in less than 6 months."
Richie Keen, 5ES, February 2013

From a parent:
"We are keen to see it progress and think its a fantastic wary to improve the children's learning experience whilst conserving trees! We only hope they can make full use of it and do lots of stuff actually on the computer directly rather than into a separate book. We think it looks simple enough that even the children could grasp it easily."
From a teacher:
"We are really trying to push our children forward and we believe the Cornish VLE is part of the way forward."

SEO from Cornish CMS
The following recommendation can be found on LinkedIn under Dr Rachel Cornish's profile.
"I was introduced to Cornish WebServices by a colleague who said that her advice and design work on his web site had brought him to the top of the natural search pages in Google. My web site was not searching well thought graphically it looked 'pleasing'. As it was not pulling in the business it was not 'fit' for its intended purpose, so I approached Rachel to do whatever was necessary (no real constraints apart from modest budget). That was in August and we are now on front page. I had to be part of the solution and writing material for the site was an important task; necessary, but not all that difficult. Rachel also helped on wording here and there, sometimes quite brutal, but usually the 'delete' key was all that was necessary. Now searching high, bringing in customers, job done! .... But Rachel points out that it's never 'done'; so it's a bit of a treadmill, but it works. Thanks. David"

I want to thank you for your initial publicity work getting ready for our new site launch. We have recently come up the listings on natural search and we are looking forward to getting to page 1 soon. This week we had a prospect come to us because we were on page 2 of his search and he was looking for someone local to support his Maximizer system. We are in Bedford and his offices were in Cambridge and Milton Keynes; a perfect match! He had read up about what we offer and how we are different, so before the call he felt he already knew us. We got the business on the phone. I have always felt that this was the way the web is supposed to work. Thank you."

Richard King, Pharmacy Consulting - April 2005
Before we undertook some search engine optimisation work, this website could not be found anywhere at all on Google or the other major search engines.

Within a few months Pharmacy Consulting was listed high on Google for longer keywords phrases and search engine rankings have continued to improve. The content and ongoing search engine optimisation are now handled by the client.
Search engine optimisation for a small business website 2
"I did a Google search yesterday on art online hampstead and came up on page 2.. Not bad! Quite an improvement on "site unknown."
Ben Greenstein, Art Online Hampstead, April 2005
Website design and marketing of a small website for a visitor attraction in Canterbury, Kent.
Cornish WebServices redesigned the Eastbridge Hospital website in 2003 to attract more visitors to the website and to increase visitor numbers at the historic Almshouse. Visitors to the website have increased significantly (by over 1500%) and more importantly, the actual visitor numbers to the tourist attraction have also increased.
"Since you created our website visitor numbers to Eastbridge have increased significantly and at a time when other attractions in Canterbury have witnessed fewer visitors. Save for the website we have done nothing else to raise awareness and so the logical conclusion must be the website is primarily responsible for the increase in visitors. We are therefore enormously grateful to you for all the help you gave setting up the site and also for continuing to monitor its progress."
Nicholas Andrews, Trustee of Eastbridge Hospital
For this tourist website we have achieved these results purely by designing an accessible website and ensuring good links with relevant tourist directories.
Accessible website design of a larger website for a consumer association.
Cornish WebServices redesigned the website for VLV in 2004 to make it easier for the client to maintain, be accessible to all and update its appearance. This website has over 100 pages, most of which now comply with the latest UK DDA legislation. VLV received the following comment from one of their blind members:
"Bearing in mind that I am totally blind, and use a twelve-year-old computer, I am pleased to tell you that all parts of the website which I thought would be of interest to me were successfully negotiated, including the reply option for this e-mail. Well done VLV!"
Peter W, VLV Member
Visitors to the VLV website have more than doubled in the last 6 months to over 5,500 per month. This again is purely as a result of having an accessible website and no PPC advertising has been needed.
.......some other client comments
"I think the number of hits the site is getting is quite remarkable - many congratulations."
Kinn McIntosh, Publisher (for website selling online books)
"Many thanks for you prompt, as always, response."
