What can you tell us about Sorted Sites?

Sorted Sites is a Web Design and Internet Marketing company which started in 2000 and we currently have ten people working for us.

 Initially we started out as a Design Company, however, the need for results as opposed to design has taken over. Things like PPC, SEO, Copywriting, Blogs, Email Marketing and Internet Marketing have been brought to the forefront of the business.

What is your company’s philosophy / mission statement?

Our mission is to develop Intelligent Web Solutions online, both in design and marketing and to provide a service to our clients that is honest and true to the spirit of the internet.

What do you see as your company’s strengths in the marketplace?

Our strength is offering a complete solution for medium to small companies from domain registrations to design and marketing. We offer a complete package of ongoing maintenance and marketing solutions.

Based on their feedback, how do your clients view your company?

Well, you would have to ask our clients. However, based on the fact that 80% of our business comes from our existing clients together with working on referrals, I would have to view it in a positive light.

What sets your company / products / services apart from your competitors?

The fact that we offer a complete solution and we are also one of the few companies that have lasted the test of time.

How do you see the future of your company in the light of new advances in technology?

I do believe that we will move further away from design and more into marketing of web sites and marketing will revolve around Blogs, Forums, on line Press Releases etc.Â

What does the future hold for Sorted Sites?

A large proportion of our work is in the Real Estate sector and I see this continuing for the foreseeable future.

How long have you been living in the Canary Islands/Spain?

10 years.

How did you decide to come here?

I initially came to work for my brother who is the owner of Pearly Grey in Tenerife.

What motivates and drives you in the business world?

I am motivated by making things work and of course I like the financial rewards too. They don´t call me “Johnny Cash” for nothing!

What do you consider to be your greatest personal achievement?

Marrying my wife, Hellen.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?
