ABOUT US

Our story

Since then, we have helped hundreds of businesses throughout the UK to setup, to grow and to succeed online.

We love turning ideas into killer online businesses.

    Rick is fantastic. Incredibly knowledgeable and skilled, and great at making complex information instantly understandable. … More I feel like I’ve walked away with a massively enhanced toolkit with which to approach building my website and optimising my SEO. Can’t recommend highly enough.

    I just attended a webinar on 'How to make the most of your website - Secrets of onsite SEO' via Brighton Library … More hosted by BIPC Sussex, with Rick from Digital Beacon as the speaker. It was absolutely excellent - really easy to understand. I made 5 pages of notes! Rick is able to get across the basics of SEO and optimising one's website in a way that makes you want to go right ahead and put it all into action. Thank you : )

    The Digital Beacon worked on our structured Data and some SEO work for our website (Fathomxp.com). Rick started with keyword … More research to define the areas we needed to target and then worked with us to define the content which he programmed into the site. We have had an increased of traffic to the site since the work was done. I highly recommend working with them.

    Rick took over my website 3 years ago and has been brilliant. He’s always been very responsive and dealt with all the inevitable … More problems that all small businesses incur and has always found a solution. He doesn’t bombard me with IT chat which is a blessed relief. I’m looking forward to his website makeover later this year.
