About Us

Go Websites is the leading Local Marketing System Agency in the UK, helping passionate small business owners to implement a proven system to consistently increase local leads without any stress or hassle.

You’re probably reading this now, thinking are these guys worth my time and effort? Well, for many people the answer will be no, and we’ll explain why this is shortly.

And this is not your typical ‘About Us’ Page, we’re not going to write about ourselves in third person (especially when we’ve written this ourselves), instead, this is more like a letter written for a friend, which in many ways it is.


Let’s get started…

Hi, We’re Michael Angrave and Lee Hancock and we started Go Websites (Formerly Splendid Apple) back in 2011. In this time we’ve not only been able to successfully increase the size and reach of our business year on year, but we’ve more importantly been able to consistently help our clients to do exactly the same thing.

We’ve worked in online marketing for a combined total of over 25 years and very quickly became clear that during the rise of the internet, designers and marketers like us, have an important role to play. Infact this role is so important, getting the right partner can often prove to be one of the most pivotal decisions a business owner or marketing manager can make, because your ability to consistently drive new leads into your local business is the lifeblood of your company’s whole existence.

After learning our trade at numerous agencies, we quite frankly, became disturbed by the way that designers and marketers became detached from projects they worked on and focused concentration on merely getting it ‘out the door’ to move on to the next one, more concerned about internal goals than those of the customer.


Aha! We’ve got it…

It was our belief, it didn’t have to be like this.

There had to be a way for designers and marketers to share in the success and feel the same desire to achieve as many business owners feel about their business. It’s this very essence that started, and still keeps to this day the Go Websites heart beating.

We mentioned earlier in this page that for many people, we’re not going to be a good fit and here’s 4 good reasons why…

  • 1) We are Local Marketing Specialists – Not generalists! This is important because although our designers, developers, and marketers are easily capable of working in other areas, we are in love with local marketing and work closely with it every single day. We understand how it works better than most and have even written a book about it.
  • 2) We have to like you too – We spend an awful lot of time in conversation with our customers, so it’s important that we’re passionate about what you do too. If you don’t believe in your product or don’t add real value to the world, then how do you expect us to get excited about your goals. We are very selective on who we choose to work with and must feel that we can make a significant difference to the success of your business.
  • 3) This is not a cheap or quick process – If you’re looking for a cheap or quick solution then we’re really not the company for you. There’s thousands upon thousands of people on the web that will do their quickest, cheapest work, just to earn a quick buck. Although our team is highly skilled and extremely efficient with our time, it’s a value of ours to always commit to doing our very best work. This means we can properly plan for both short-term and long-term success.
  • 4) We believe everything can be improved – Setting goals and hitting them is in our blood. We work as an energetic and passionate team to achieve big things together. We learn from our mistakes and celebrate our successes as a team. By testing and analysing every bit of data at a granular level, we’re always able to continually correct and adjust course, taking large steps forward and hitting targets.

What to do next?
