About Webartifice

The Beginning

Formed over 25 years ago in Bournemouth on the sunny south coast of England, Webartifice started designing user and search engine friendly websites long before digital marketing became buzzwords. Steve Tunnicliffe created Webartifice, that’s me, and since its inception, I have always overseen project design, development, and implementation.

Small Business Web Design & Development – From A Different Angle

I created Webartifice two decades ago after recognising that smaller businesses weren’t getting the service they needed to succeed online. So, along with a small group of dedicated and talented people, most of who have gone on to do great things in their careers (and some of which have since retired!), we built practical online tools that helped businesses be successful.

A Focus On SEO

I still create websites today, but increasingly my time is spent as an SEO consultant. I have helped many companies and organisations succeed online by providing custom-built strategies that consider goals, abilities, and budgets.

My pledge:

  • I’ll never take on a client unless I am confident I can help them.
  • I’ll never take on businesses in direct competition with an existing client.
  • I’ll be transparent about what I do; there is no secret sauce or skulduggery!
  • My advice will be honest and based on experience and fact.

Who I Help

While I have worked with clients as far away as northern Scotland and those who do business in Africa, my client base is predominantly local.

In honesty, I prefer this as it enables me to provide the personal touch that I believe is essential to building a good relationship with my clients. In addition, my clients are exclusively SMEs; I leave enterprise work to agencies with the necessary resources to cope.

Keep on Moving

The online landscape has changed significantly over time, and the opportunities for marketing your business are more diverse now than ever before.

You could say that while there was very little help for small businesses 20 years ago, there is now too much advice freely available online, and not all of it is good. As a result, the job of promoting your business and reaching your online goals may now seem much more complicated.

I feel that there is now even more of a need to help SMEs identify those opportunities and help them achieve their goals.

Here & Now

Appearances can be deceptive online, so I’d like to clarify that I don’t run a big marketing agency, and I don’t work with enterprise clients. The further up the scale of success you are, the less likely it is that I will have the capacity to help you.

Start-ups with a strong business plan, micro-businesses and small businesses will benefit from my service. Look here for a definition of these types of business; you may be surprised. (Skip to Table B of the document if the description is all you need.)

SEO With A Firm Foundation

I base my processes on an industry recognised planning system that you can read more about on the pages of this website. Careful planning and implementation are the keys to online success.

Are you wondering whether we are the right people to help you with your next project? Many offer hollow promises, and you’ll be keen to avoid them. However, you’ll find that we’re honest and hardworking and genuinely have your best interests at heart. We value both our clients and our reputation.

Please view my rates, and if they are within your budget, please contact me about your project.

We highly recommend the services of Steve Tunnicliffe, owner of Webartifice.  Steve has worked alongside us at WPS since day one, our website being key to  the development of our procurement business in Africa.

Steve immerses himself in projects, researching key points in depth with no time wasted, having the ability to quickly understand how your business operates, working alongside his client as a “team” member.

The results have been excellent to the point that we have reduced our marketing efforts having found our niches.
