Ben SoleProject Lead - Franchising, Reed.co.uk
Working with Firecask has been excellent. Not only are they diligent, responsive and customer focussed, they have been proactive in making suggestions to improve our site. The site was delivered on time, for great value and the development process was easy. We had regular updates, great communication and fun throughout. I’d personally recommend them and look forward to working with Rhys and Alex again.

When we knew we were ready to re-focus and re-launch our content offering, we knew exactly where to turn. The expertise and in-depth knowledge of WordPress shown by Alex and his team was second to none and that was important in making sure we went beyond more than just a change of theme.
To have a third-party company that can work so smoothly with our own in-house team was also vital in making the switchover from old site to new site relatively pain-free even with our extensive archives.
Jon BishopDirector of Content & Optimisation, Funding Circle
FireCask built the WordPress platform for Funding Circle which includes our blog, press centre and jobs page. Building a great WordPress presence is a multi-faceted task, not only does it need to look and work great but it needs to be optimised to ensure the content ranks well on search and can be easily shared.
FireCask delivered effortlessly on the design, build and optimisation of our WordPress platform in a friendly and timely manner. I found it a pleasure to work them and will continue to use their services.

I can heartily recommend Alex Moss and the rest of the excellent FireCask team. We brought them in at Crown Clinic just under a year ago after a lot of historic problems with our SEO caused by a previous SEO company. This resulted in Crown Clinic being penalised by Google and dropping right down the rankings – extremely damaging for a
business like ours.
Alex quickly diagnosed the problem and came up with a long-term solution to fix it which involved removing lots of ‘rogue’ links created without our knowledge by the previous SEO company. Once we had removed these links – a painstaking process taking several months – Alex was able to go back to Google and get the penalty removed.
The whole process took around six months – exactly the time period Alex predicted. And just as he predicted, once the penalty was lifted, our Google rankings started to improve. FireCask has further improved our rankings by creating legitimate links and mapping out an effective long-term strategy.
We get a monthly report detailing all the work that FireCask does for us. Alex calmly and patiently outlines their tasks and objectives and never makes promises he cannot keep. His charging is very competitive. To summarise, in FireCask we have a SEO team we can trust. SEO is a technical job and one that requires the very best team of experts. Pick the wrong SEO and you can be in big trouble.

We asked FireCask to redevelop our website about 18 months ago.
Since that time we’ve experienced a doubling of traffic to our site with a similar response by telephone. FireCask’s team have also helped us with our social media and provided in-house training to staff. They are friendly and approachable, and more importantly know what they are doing.
I would recommend them whole-heartedly.
