Founding Director of Digital Marketing Agency Optix Solutions. 15 Years in Internet Marketing. Teach on Exeter University's OnePlanet MBA. Avid West Ham Fan & Skier.
Having spent the last 15 years in Internet Marketing and currently head up a digital marketing agency in the UK I can help you with gaps in your search strategy, coaching you on what you need to put in place to get better listings both naturally and through paid advertising.
I have been blown away by the high quality of service I have received from Alastair and the whole team at Optix Solutions on the YouGen site. They have gone out of their way to work with me to develop and significantly improve my original idea for YouGen. I really respect Alastair's business acumen, and the generosity with which he applies it to clients' businesses as well as to his own. I wholeheartedly recommend Optix. They are a pleasure to work with.
Optix Solutions are a world class firm based right here in Devon. Their MD Alastair Banks is the man when it comes to on-line marketing and social media. If you want to drive more leads into your business then get in touch with Alastair or one of his highly capable team - a young, dynamic firm on the leading edge of technology and marketing.
These guys designed two top notch sites for me, to be frank they are the best I have come across.
Having worked with Alastair and his team re email marketing and a new website for the charity for just over a year I couldn't recommend him or Optix Solutions more highly. Their design and innovation is second to none and Alastair and his team are always up to date on the latest trends re design and social media.
I worked with Alastair during the early days at Optix on the technical side of things. Alastair naturally became the figurehead of Optix. He's a born communicator and extremely approachable. He has a great passion for the web and I truly believe he's making a difference. The success of Optix has been down to his determination and knowledge. Give Alastair a shout if you're in the South West and need help with anything web. He also has an interesting blog worth subscribing to. I would highly recommend him and his team.
Alastair and his colleagues at Optix provide a good service, focussed on client needs. I have recommended him to a number of clients, all with good feedback.
Two words sum up Alastair - Quality and Focus. Focus - His knowledge within his industry sectors is second to none, his ability to spot talent is incredible (drop in to Optix - you'll see what I mean). Quality - whenever you work with Alastair, you'll find he's asking many questions - the mark of a leader - and also the mark of a gentleman.
Optix provides a quality product and service in a competitive market place. It understands the importance of communication with its clients and listens to their needs.
Alastair is a very switched on, "user friendly" teccy who speaks common sense and provides practical, usable solutions by focusing on what clients are trying to achieve. He also strikes me as a forward thinking, motivated and committed business owner - who leads from the front!
Al has the gift of taking what's on the cutting edge, working out what the real value in it is for his clients and the larger markets, and then translating it in a concise and powerful way.
This ability to straddle stability along with entrepreneurial vision serves him well, and makes him a valuable asset to any project.
Working with Alastair and his team at Optix Solutions on our website has been a pleasure and the results speak for themselves: big increase in traffic plus many more enquiries from patients and public alike. Roll on phase 2 which will be even more exciting!
