Hello there, my name is Chris Lever. I provide bespoke freelance SEO (Digital Marketing) and Web Design (Web Development) services. I've been providing freelance services for several years now (2011) and over that time amassed many skillsets across development and marketing. My fulltime is job is with the Marketing Team for a Ecommerce Specialist Development Company in the heart of Manchester.
It's my business to help companies expand online. In-short, that means making a website that attracts visitors or thinking up proven strategies to help existing websites attract a wider audience. Over the years in my professional career I have worked with 100's of businesses of varying sizes, SMB's and PLC's. You can also hire me to provide digital marketing training sessions, lectures and presentations.
Back in 2011, I setup Sitebee to help local businesses in my hometown of Bolton to establish a foothold within the digital landscape. A lot has changed since then. Manchester has become the authoritative digital marketing hub of the UK, which led to me moving to Manchester working agency side.
Working fulltime for digital marketing agencies you're met with many demanding clients, KPIs, algorithm updates, red tape and challenges. Navigating through those challenges is not always easy, although the skills, experience and knowledge acquired can be many times that of in-house expertise. Simply put, I've worked damn hard to acquire all the knowledge and problem-solving experience.
What I have to offer is many years experience in helping businesses establish and grow online. Working freelance, I can offer agency level experience at a 3rd of the cost. The compromise being nothing.
I work from home in Manchester and hotdesk with substantially lower overheads than agency counterparts. Accepting briefs for retainers, project collaborations and hourly-based. The suites of tools, workflow and methodologies are still the same..
