“When I started designing websites in 1995 the web barely existed, in fact, there were less than 10,000 websites worldwide. Google was still a few years away, Gerrard had yet to join Liverpool, Toy Story was launched, (we won’t mention O. J. Simpson and Windows 95), Sony launched PlayStation, and the dot.com era began with astonishing development & investment (think eBay and match.com) and most people accessed the web using slow modems.
More than two decades later, with our close partners Melchior and my colleagues, we have developed cutting-edge projects for business, the Church and charities.
Together with careful planning & strategy, creative design, effective marketing, testing & continual improvement we like to think we’ve created a better way. The ACTIS way.“
Andrew M. Elliott – MD.

Our projects reach
People on the move
Understanding where your audience is and which devices they use is key to being able to reach and engage. All our websites cater for mobile devices… which means we need to understand how people behave on PCs, tablets and mobiles.
Unique? Yes, absolutely! All our work is based upon Business Intelligence using our own system of Marginal Aggregate Improvement’. We take your content and ensure it is effectively promoted and managed across multiple channels.
We use LIVE data from eBay, Amazon, Google Analytics, Google Shopping, and Email Marketing to establish trends, what is sold, for how much, when, and by whom. This knowledge informs content & user experience, marketing, and purchasing decisions.
We provide a fully-managed marketing service or a hybrid where we train you to make the most of the web.
LIVE data from eBay & Amazon provides information on pricing, sales volumes, timings, and more. This is an exclusive service.
Still an effective means to keep in touch with customers. Reach thousands regularly with your own direct message.
Social Media truly works. Our campaigns help you manage frequent and regular updates to engage with your customers where they are.
Big Data is key. Accessing and correctly interpreting analytics is key. Setting up the right metrics in the first place is paramount.
