Phil

Phil Crosskell – Senior Web Developer

Sports-mad Phil tries to engage the rest of OGA staff with Formula 1, footy and cricket conversations, but sadly he’s the only one interested. But he’s not alone in his passion for creating eye-catching websites. Phil can take a drab website and re-imagine it into something very appealing and easy to navigate. He can help you with all of those areas that you may find quite baffling, like SEO, Google AdWords and Analytics, hosting, domains and EDMs.

“I can guide you through the complexities of creating a website from scratch or update your existing site to bring it bang up to date.”

Matt

Matt Hardinge – Digital Marketing Manager

When he’s not cycling up steep hills, or bossing around the OGA staff with hourly planks, sit-ups and push-ups, action-star Matt can help you get your business noticed with social media and clever online conversion strategies. He can guide you through the often complex and sometimes confusing processes to help you make the most of your business online.

“Let us handle the heavy lifting so you can focus on growing your business.”
