Philip Martindale (Alcander Ltd)
The Alcander Company provides Search Engine Optimisation Services (SEO), social media consultancy, a unique business opportunity and CMS solutions.
In the field of SEO, we take a holistic approach to making sure your website really works optimally for your organisation, bringing in good quality targeted web traffic leading to increased sales. We will not only remove any aspect of your website that might be getting in the way of you reaching your targets, but also, through processes such as
- keyword research
- on-page optimisation
- link building
- site architecture changes
- social media engagement
help you exceed those targets and make the web work for you in ways you had not previously anticipated.
Alcander is also the name behind a business opportunity called Sociarise which enables businesses to add extra revenue streams with no selling, no joining fee and minimal time and effort. We are also experts in ensuring that websites are easy to update (edit, upload images, add new pages etc.) by non-technical staff. Our ElegantCMS solution avoids the need for changes to go via the web designer or administrator so the costs and waiting times are eliminated.
About me : I'm mad about modern jazz e.g. Pat Metheny. I play the piano a lot (jazz and classical) and I compose music for fun. I try and spare a week each year to hit the pistes in resorts such as Les Trois Vallees and Portes du Soleil. My partner, Caroline, prefers the cross-country variety. The skiing bug is understandable when I tell you that I spent 7 years in the eighties living in Switzerland, working for ABB (developing tools for software development and QA). Since leaving Switzerland I have worked mainly in e-commerce, working for companies such as CSC, Easams and GEC-Marconi. But since October 2002 I have been involved with my own business - Alcander Ltd. which provides Internet Marketing Services. More recently, I have started up Sociarise which is targetted at referral agents (and those who don't know what a referral agent is) and Elegant CMS.
