Hey, I'm Colin

A Freelance WordPress Developer & SEO Consultant

Yep, I've been developing and optimising WordPress websites for over a decade!

I'll get straight to it, I'm here to add value to your business, and to collaborate closely with you, and your team to ensure your website performs and achieves its goals. You can think of me as your in-house WordPress or SEO expert, working as an extension to your company or organisation.

As a freelance WordPress and SEO consultant in Bournemouth, I've worked alongside creatives, marketing agencies, entrepreneurs and businesses of all sizes.

I've worked on WordPress builds and SEO projects for well-known brands such as The Furniture Market, England Netball, St Johns Ambulance, GoodOaks Home Care, SenSpa, and New York Bakery Co to name a few.

I can help you with the development and SEO of a new WordPress website. I can also help maintain and improve your current WordPress website, as well as migrate existing platforms over to WordPress.

WordPress Development

I specialise in building bespoke WordPress themes from the ground up with no off-the-shelf templates. I write lean and clean code to produce lightning-fast, accessible WordPress sites 💪

When I build custom WordPress sites I use Sage for a modern web development workflow, that includes WP CLI, version control, package management and automated GIT deployment pipelines.

I can develop WordPress websites from designs supplied in Figma, Adobe XD and Sketch to name a few. I can take your ideas from wireframes to fully functional website applications.

WordPress Optimisation

The latest Google Page Experience update in 2021 announced algorithm updates for Core Vitals which includes page speed. ⚡

You can be certain your competitors will already be working on improving their website performance scores. As not only will you end up with a much better website, but you'll win more business from Google when combined with high-quality content and SEO.

Now is the time to leave your competitors in the dust with a fast website that passes Google Core Vitals.

WordPress Page Speed

I don't mess about when it comes to page speed. Check out Google Page Insights to see the performance score of this website.

Not only are my WordPress websites faster than a speeding bullet and superman, but they're also streamlined and easier to update. You'll find it a breeze to manage your own content with the site I build for you.

Freelance SEO Consultancy

I started out as a developer, and still work as a developer... But I'm also completely obsessed with SEO - seriously it's all I can think about!

This gives me a huge advantage over other developers with little to no SEO experience, because not only do I have a solid understanding of how to build SEO friendly websites, but I know how to drive organic traffic to get results too.

Read my case study where I worked with PhytoVista Laboratories the UK's premium CBD testing laboratory to increase organic traffic by over 220%.

Read my case study where I rebuilt and optimised a small lead-gen site for an auto-locksmith company and secured their first organic lead in the first few weeks of going live!

Read my case study where I worked with The Furniture Market as part of a Matt Woodward unboxed SEO video that saw 3X revenue.

I'm based in Bournemouth

I'm a Bournemouth based WordPress developer and SEO consultant with 15 years of agency and freelance experience combined.
