With many digital marketing channels available it can be overwhelming choosing which to use, there's no one size fits all, I work with clients to identify and use the right channels and best practise for them.


Search engine optimisation or SEO is an important aspect of improving your visibility and building trust, it should be the base of any good digital foundations. Working with clients to ensure it is built-in from day one.

Data / Analytics Setup & Strategy


Data and analytics should be central to delivering a successful digital strategy, without the right metrics in place you are flying blind, I work with my clients to ensure they are able to measure and marketing efficiently.


With so much digital technology in the market, it can be a minefield. I will work with you and your partners to ensure you are investing in and making the best use of any technology needed for your business.


Providing supportive services to clients for all of their digital, marketing and technology needs, giving them the peace of mind that they have professional help at hand whenever they need to call upon it.



Mark Lusted (CEO) - Dock9
Myself and the Dock9 team have had the pleasure of working with Rick on a number of digital projects during his time as Head of Digital at Castle Trust and Head of Marketing at Wellesley. Throughout these projects, Rick has combined a laser-like focus on delivering exceptional user experiences, which coupled with his holistic understanding of digital technology and business processes, makes him a valuable asset to companies embarking on digital transformation.
Jeremy Stevens (Head Of Marketing) - Castle Trust Bank
I worked with Rick at Castle Trust and during that period, he used his considerable digital skills, knowledge and understanding to deliver significant business volumes and increases in customer numbers, and brand awareness. His digital marketing knowledge, combined with his commercial awareness, would make him an asset to any company that wishes to develop and implement a market-leading digital marketing strategy.​
Chris Simpson (Head Of Marketing) - Glasses Direct
Rick is a highly motivated and driven online marketing expert with no-nonsense pragmatism and a strong team player too. I recruited Rick into Glasses Direct at a time when our online marketing was still in early stages of development. Rick built an excellent cross-channel dashboard and oversaw the implementation of a best practise attribution model as well as bringing paid search in-house, managing SEO, appointing a new affiliate agency and managing our display ads amongst many other projects. With hands-on expertise in each of the core online disciplines. Rick's immensely capable - he has also shown his people development skills whilst in the role. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Rick as an asset to any size of online business.
Matthew Pontefract (CTO) - Glasses Direct
Rick is all about getting the job done and not beating around the bush. He expects a lot of himself, a lot of those he's working with and he's a great person to share the office with to boot. Always pushing for better results he takes the opportunities as they come, makes them if they don't, and drives the business forward but he's also quick to recognise the efforts of others which makes it a real pleasure working with him.
Ran Nir (CEO) - Conversion Counts
I worked with Rick on various SEO projects in one of the most competitive industries at the moment. Rick's knowledge of the online marketing landscape in particular SEO and willingness to think out side the box was paramount to the success of these projects. Looking forward to working with him again in future!
Tom Irving (Head Dietitian) - Discount Supplements
Since beginning my time under Rick’s management I can honestly say that the 2 years have flown by, Rick’s capacity to manage me as an individual has been impeccable. I have acquired numerous skills both specific to marketing and life in general thanks to Rick’s tentativeness, consideration, willingness to help and exemplary knowledge. Efficiency is one of the main things Rick has taught me, instilling the most effective and time efficient ways of doing things has been one of Rick’s main lessons. Alongside this he has taught me what it is to be honest, open and goal driven, every project he set was target driven with the best interests of the company in mind, never his own.
David Brookes (Lead UI Developer) - Castle Trust Bank
Rick has been a real pleasure to work with, he did an exceptional job producing the digital marketing strategy for Castle Trust, which we worked together to implement over the last year seeing excellent results for the business. Rick will transform the way your organisation does digital marketing. Hope we work together again in the future!
