Over the years his expertise have played a vital part in the success of .net magazine, where his insightful articles, keen analysis and advice have been lapped up by our readership. there’s no doubt, Mark is the go-to guy! "
- Ops Editor, .Net magazine, 2010 | World's bestselling web design magazine

"We approached Mark Buckingham of NetSeek to help two of our businesses to launch on eBay. We needed expert guidance and advice from a professional eBay consultant and found Mark to be well-informed and helpful in assisting us identifying the best plan of attack to attain quick growth on the eBay marketplace. Mark undertook several onsite training workshops with our staff, as well as additional offsite support to help achieve such, as well as co-producing professional eBay template designs in conjunction with eSeller Solutions.

Within several months we had attained Top Rated Status and were equipped to bring eBay fully in house, and we would like to thank Mark for helping to make this happen. We would also note that Mark was receptive to suggestions and feedback regarding his own consultation and was prepared to be flexible in helping us achieve our aims as quickly as possible. We would not hesitate to recommend NetSeek for any business looking to expand their eBay presence."

L&Q housing associaton eBay courses

"Mark has delivered a number of eBay classes across L&Q’s communities at beginners, intermediate and advanced level. The courses have focussed on how to buy and sell safely on eBay, how to maximise sales and customer feedback and setting up an eBay business. Over 200 of our residents attended the training courses and were very positive about the experience, expressing that they now felt more confident to use eBay and that they had a much better understanding of how to make the best use of it for their business.

Mark has been a pleasure to work with, he has been very passionate about the project and this has come across during his classes where he has developed excellent rapport with attendees. He has been flexible in his approach to what was a new venture for us and this has helped ensure the success of the project."

Sheryl Martin, Senior Manager
L&Q Housing Association | Oct 2012

" Circle 33 worked with Mark to deliver some pilot How to sell on eBay Beginner and Intermediate Classes. To date the feedback from residents has been extremely positive, with all saying they feel more confident using eBay and many have already sold goods on the site, with some now looking to generate a regular income through sales. These courses directly support Circle 33’s strategic objectives around supporting residents out of financial exclusion. Residents have responded really well to Mark’s eBay training; the classes are interactive and engaging with everyone able to get involved.

Mark has been great to work with, with regard to setting up the classes and the level and content of each session; he has been able to deliver classes at times that suit our residents and we hope to continue to develop the partnership further."

Circle 33 - Employment & Training Partnership Manager | Oct 2012

" We found our session extremely useful and insightful and many of the points you raised have already been implemented with clear signs of success. Your knowledge of the inner workings and complexities of Ebay was impressively deep.

We’d certainly recommend your consultation services to other Ebay traders, especially those newly launching their products onto this marketplace.

MajorDeal.co.uk | Spring 2012

" I was very happy with the consultation that I had with Mark. It really helped me to focus on the small things that I could do with my eBay listings and store that I hadn't really made an effort to do previously. I think that all eBay store holders / sellers should occasionally get a second opinion on how they are doing things and speaking to an eBay consultant like Mark can only do you some good. It's so easy to just list things and then leave them to their own devices. Mark pointed out how how can do so much more to get them noticed. "

Old Skool Hooligans Ltd | Dec 2012

" The Marketing team at Proporta booked the one day eBay training course in the hope it would increase our websales and offer guidance on how best to use eBay and get that golden Daily Deal, Mark certainly didn't disappoint. Our eBay sales have increased by 30% since undertaking the training.

We also found the section on Search Engine Optimization enormously informative and useful. The package that we chose included a follow up session that we undertook a few weeks later and the further guidance provided during this has been invaluable. "

Head of Marketing, Proporta.co.uk

" After setting up our Bay store, and with such a vast amount of information to wade through, we decided to look for technical support to help us optimise our business to ensure we were getting the most out of EBay...I was recommended Netseek and would like to say that I was delighted we contacted them. Mark is well very informed on the subject and was extremely good in translating my brief to him. He was very patient, concise and answered all of our questions that we threw at him. Most importantly, he kept things jargon free! Even after our first meeting, we have already made some changes in our strategy that will help drive traffic to our store.

Netseek should be a company that you definitely add to your 'favourites'. "

" We would thoroughly recommend Mark to anyone who is a complete novice as far as optimising their website and the use of Google Adwords. Mark came to see us in Cornwall from London without a thought and charged an extremely good rate for doing so.

He explained everything in full and was very patient and understanding with our lack of knowledge. He was clear and precise and made us feel very happy/ comfortable in asking hundreds of questions which were probably very basic for him!

A lovely and very knowledgeable chap.....thank you once again Mark!! "

The People Tree - bar, restuarant & che management jobs

" We started working with Mark and the guys at Netseek some months ago and since then we have worked hand in hand re-writing the script for our entire website. We weren’t totally sure how quickly this work would have an impact on our business but have been pleasantly surprised at how quickly Netseeks efforts have got the People Tree some top listings.

I guess the acid test for any web optimisation work is how quickly you can convert the work done into enquiries – we have without question had at least a 30% increase in the amount of calls we receive and our website has increased traffic by an average of 3000 hits a month. Mark works tirelessly to get the job done and we now feel as though Mark and Netseek are an extension of our own management team providing us with a flexible ongoing resource at realistic prices. I would highly recommend their services to anyone in a similar situation.

winedirect.co.uk - online wine retailer - adwords management & SEO

Thanks to MarkBuckingham and NetSeek we not only understood Google's Adwords thoroughly, but crafted a powerful Adwords campaign that sent our business through the roof when we re-launched.

We'd been through two sets of expensive internet marketing consultants who made things more difficult than they really were.

Mark's patient, jargon free, hands-on Google AdWords training was not only much cheaper, but added much more value and, most importantly, enabled us to design, launch and manage AdWord campaigns independently after the first couple of weeks."

getLive.co.uk - UK's leading concert and theatre ticket store

(STAGE 1 - 2004) - now LiveNation.co.uk

Clear Channel Entertainment is the world’s largest promoter of live events. Our UK online box office was launched in 2002 to build on the soaring growth of UK and European web based ticket sales. Whilst our traffic was averaging over 1 million page impressions a month, it was clear our site was not positioned well on Google.

On recommendation, Clear Channel Entertainment UK hired NetSeek to provide a comprehensive optimization and copywriting service. NetSeek created text that required very few amendments, worked well within the limited space available, and was relevant to a wide audience.

Within days of the modifications being launched, our Google rankings had improved massively – in many instances, leapfrogging firmly established competition with first page listings. Our overall traffic is still rising steadily.

The overall response to our site has been very positive and we expect to continue working with NetSeek as we develop our site. We found NetSeek to be professional and their service most beneficial. I recommend their service to any organisation serious about improving their online coverage and text copy.

(STAGE 2 - Sept 2005)

Having engaged NetSeek to optimize and create copy for our first online box office, ccLIVE.co.uk, with very pleasing results; we once again hired NetSeek to optimize our new entertainment portal, getLIVE.co.uk.

NetSeek created well-balanced text copy congruent with our dynamic content and the broad demographic of our audience and consulted us on structural optimization techniques during the process. Although the whole project ran slightly longer than initially expected, the results are excellent, especially considering the highly competitive marketplace in which we operate.

Soon after launching getLIVE, our rankings had climbed even further; with the site positioned on the first page of Google for many primary key phrases. We are happy to endorse NetSeek's optimization and copywriting solutions. We found their approach to be proactive and they seem to genuinely care about results.

NetSeek clearly has an in-depth knowledge of SEO and had taken the time to look closely at our websites prior to the consultation. During a two hour meeting, NetSeek was able to offer to offer some excellent advice on both areas. We are now in the process of implementing some of their suggestions.

RJC Canada

NetSeek provided copywriting services for our recently updated corporate website. Our primary goal in utilizing NetSeek was to improve website search engine visibility while improving the overall sense and flow of our site. The results were impressive, to say the least.

We found working with NetSeek to be a pleasure. Their service was prompt and professional. We were most astounded by their ability to effectively communicate information despite great distances between our bases of operation.

We are pleased to endorse the services provided NetSeek provided us and look forward to our continued involvement with them as our website continues to evolve.

Since NetSeek optimised our website, our rankings have increased dramatically across Google, MSN and Yahoo search engines. The site also reads better and is much more user friendly. We found NetSeek, and their design partners e-Designscape, to be efficient, friendly and showed excellent communication skills throughout the period of the project. We will definitely use Netseek in the future.

Having employed NetSeek after a recommendation from a client, we have no regrets whatsoever: their style of work, and relaxed yet professional approach suits my own outlook and as a result, they were a pleasure to work with. Their results speak for themselves - within 4 weeks of work being completed JMHFitness had increased it's workload by 30% without our daily Google hits increasing by 100%.

London campaign paintball park

Campaign Paintball is one of the largest independent paintball venues in the UK. We felt our search engine rankings weren’t what they could be and sought a company to help improve our exposure across the board. We chose NetSeek for two reasons: we found them towards the top of Google for our initial search queries, and they impressed us by their proactive attitude.

NetSeek took time to consult Campaign on the required approach before working with our team to improve our copy to be both more search engine and easier to read. The site now reads better, is more persuasive and informative, and is evidently better optimized for search engines. Soon after implementing these changes, we were delighted to find our site gaining improved Google listings for some major keywords.

We are pleased with the results so far and have no hesitation in endorsing their services to any kind of business seeking professional copy writing and optimization solutions.

After considering a variety of web designer companies, we opted for NetSeek, working in close partnership with I O communications. Their own sites reflected exactly what we were looking for. Throughout the project, they came across very professional, promptly designing a site that meet all of our objectives.

Only 4 weeks after site launch, we are pleased to confirm that NetSeek, working with I O have exceeded our expectations and achieved an extensive number of top rankings on Google according to our major catch phrases. All I can say about our site is fantastic - we are very impressed. A job well done!

" I'd like to thank you for the huge success that you have achieved for us in getting our website to feature at the top of Google rankings for many of our important search references.

As you know, having tried unsuccessfully several times before (and at not insignificant cost) with other companies to improve our rankings, we were highly sceptical that Netseek could do any better. However, I take my hat off to you. Our cynicism has been proven to be unfounded. Indeed, we have just had an enquiry that could result in a large contract for us that would have undoubtedly gone to our competitors.

The small investment we have made with you will be returned many times over and in such a short period of time. Once again, many thanks and my utmost recommendation for your service."

" We are a new business and didn't have a web site. We wanted a web site as quick as possible that was 'clean' and efficient. NetSeek certainly fulfilled our brief. In fact, they exceeded it. Although we are still refining our image and web technology - we have in our view a very 'clean' and certainly fast website that looks and works very well.

In only two months since NetSeek promoted our new Cellfood UK website, we now enjoy over 30 top major search engines listings under our major key words, including top placements on Google, Alta Vista, Lycos, HotBot and MSN. For example, we are number 1 on Google worldwide, for 'oxygen nutrient supplements', 'Cellfood UK' and 'oxygen mineral supplements' - to name just a few. As a result, we have started to enjoy increased number of web visitors and orders."

" The objective of our project was to raise the profile of KnowTS through improved rankings with the major search engines, and to project a more professional image. Netseek provided expert advice and support in achieving improved search rankings in my specialist areas. The opportunity to be involved in the semantic analysis of the site was both valuable and demanding - a rewarding and enjoyable experience.

IO Communications made the re-design of the site relatively easy. Through initial consultation and provision of some simple choices, the appearance of the site has improved markedly. The mechanics of the site were made functional and worked smoothly. Overall, the collaborative style of work was effective and the changes made represent good value and a worthwhile investment."

" Ardenta found Netseek via Google, when searching for a web agency in the UK. We selected Netseek because of the knowledgeable and imaginative way in which they responded to our initial requirements to enhance the visual impact of our site and improve the "organic" rankings that our site receives in major search engines.

Netseek provided a number of outline graphic designs from which to choose, and worked with us to refine our text both for readability and maximum search engine impact. On time, and within budget, we had a new, visually-exciting site, and shortly thereafter, search engine results that exceeded our expectations.

Netseek's ability to understand our problems and implement solutions has been delivered on time and to our satisfaction with a personal service second to none. It follows from the above that Netseek carries my highest possible recommendation for web design and search engine optimization services. "
