Phil Gregory Founds Peak District SEO, 2017
Phil still loves to work with a hands-on approach, helping businesses to implement marketing strategies. Focusing on product merchandising, and PR outreach techniques. After setting up Peak District SEO in 2017, Phil’s passion for the web is as strong as ever.
“Working with agencies has given me some great insight into what’s done well and what could be done better. My aim is to provide an affordable SEO and PPC service for small and medium-sized businesses.”
Over the years, Phil began to notice that many web agencies were starting to specialise. Some focus on design, others focus on development and databases. Peak District SEO is no different. Phil realised that our real skills lie in marketing, and whilst he can build and fix websites, it’s not his true passion. Of course, clients often need a mix of services to ensure their online success, this is where our partners step in.
“I work with a range of trusted partners to deliver services that fit neatly with good SEO, such as product photography, graphic design and web development. If you should need advice on any of these services, I’ll hook you up with a trusted professional.
The partners I select, care about their skills and treat their work as an art form. You’ll get great quality work at a fair price. No churn and burn, rip off merchants here.”
