I recently had the pleasure to work with Alan and found his insights valuable. There are many self appointed SEO experts out there. Alan is the real deal.
John Hornell, Director
Alan was recently a presenter at our workshop for Collabor8te members, giving a very informative and common-sense session. His knowledge of SEO is clear but what’s really impressive for someone who works in what is sometimes seen as some kind of black art, is that Alan also really understands marketing so everything is linked together. Definitely recommended if you’re looking to get better results from your website and digital marketing!
Teresa Jackson, Director, Collabor8te
I’ve worked with Alan twice now – first at a Social Media seminar when his presentation gave insight into SEO and social media engagement; and second when he conducted a training afternoon for us on Data Analytics. On both occasions he received excellent feedback from attendees and we plan to hold a follow up session next year.

I work for a Charity, Scottish Sports Futures, and we have just launched our bespoke website for a new training programme called ETC. Along with my colleague I was introduced to Alan from Contact through our trusted designer and printer (Michael Melvin from Melvin Creative) as we found ourselves with a new training programme with lots of cool resources and needed an easy to use website with a booking system for the training we had developed.
Our target market is busy coaches and youth workers so we knew we wanted something eye catching, easy to navigate and worked as both an information point as well as following a process for booking onto training.
I am limited in my IT knowledge and though like using websites and booking online that’s where my expertise (or lack of) ends. On first meeting with Alan we described in very basic terms what we were after from the site. Alan got it immediately and quickly started telling us how he envisaged it could work.
He spent a good 3 hours asking us questions and finding out more about our programme. We went away with a bit of work to do in sketching out how we wanted to process from someone first accessing the website right through to them gaining post course material.
Alan came back with his much more detailed plan of how it could actually work, in terms we easily understood. He really has been amazing at using his genius to create something new to meet our needs for the site, sometimes dazzling us with the finite detail of how it would work and always being interested in making it as easy to use as possible.
We are truly delighted with our new website and already it has been aired on the 2014 Commonwealth Games legacy newsletter recently released. Alan and his team made last minute changes as we changed our minds, suggested things we could add in or take away which were over and above what we had originally planned all to make the system work for us, and the end user as easy as can be.
Even now as we have launched the site Alan is on hand to help us with any questions we have (there have been a few) and made even more changes as we have people start using the site. He has made what was a ‘mind mappy’ headache for us a truly brilliant reality.
Our experience with Alan has been excellent.
He is very reliable and easy to work with, dealing with requests in a timely fashion and relaying information/feedback on a regular basis. He is full of great ideas and we have seen the results of his hard work very quickly.
We would recommend him to anyone looking for a fresh approach to SEO and hope to continue to work with him for a long time.
From our first meeting with Contact it was clear to see that the team have an extensive knowledge of every facet of modern website design and development. I was particularly struck by Contact’s impeccable personalised service and attention to detail. All the team REALLY listened to our requirements, desires and input, and augmented it with their own fabulous creativity to develop a site that has truly met with our expectations.
Their utmost professionalism and courtesy eased us through some testing times and their ever friendly demeanour was deeply appreciated as they patiently guided us through what can often be a daunting process. Without a doubt, we would happily refer anyone to them without hesitation!
We could not be more satisfied with their work and after only a few months our new website is already providing us with an excellent platform to further advance our business online.
We have worked with Alan and Steve for over 18 months on 4c Design’s website and eMarketing. The great thing about CMM is they are geeky enough to understand all the technical aspects of the web, as well as being superb marketeers. The balance of these two skills is what makes them great to work with.
Great website development company. In tune with what we were wanting to achieve and easy to communicate ideas. Open and honest advice about what will work and won’t work and full technical support for seo’s etc. The turnaround was fast, on time and working within our budget. Many thanks for all your help.
I can’t recommend Contact Online highly enough. My updated website was prepared in no time and none of the detailed changes I wanted was too much trouble. My emails were responded to by return and the whole thing was up and running very quickly. My original website was looking rather dated and Alan has brought it well into the 21st Century.
I think he initially understood my needs better than I did, and had some excellent innovative ideas for redesigning it. It now looks superb, the information is rationalised better into separate pages that are easy to navigate. Our new site also has enhanced visitor numbers following improved Site Engine Optimisation.
I was very pleased with the final outcome and many of my customers have commented on how good they thought the website was and far better than any others they’d looked at offering a similar service to me. We would thoroughly recommend his services thanks again Alan
Extremely happy with redesigned web site. Hadn’t realised how dated the original web site was but now we have a modern, eye catching design which reflects accurately what we do – Payroll for other businesses. Nothing was too much trouble and any changes I requested were made very quickly and efficiently. Dorothy Imrie Director
Alan Fair of Contact has been my main provider of website design and marketing services since 2003. He has worked on a number of websites for my own companies and projects as well as undertaking wide-ranging work for a number of clients that I have been more than happy to refer him to.
Alan combines expertise in design and layout with the functional skills needed to provide an effective website. Most importantly, Alan understands business and business people so that he always delivers what is needed to get the best results for his client.
Alan is great to work with as he sticks to the brief but also makes you aware of other ideas and possibilities for your website – helping his clients deliver a better service to their clients. I cannot recommend Alan’s work highly enough and would be glad to speak to anyone considering using Contact.
You will not find a more proactive, intelligent web designer than Alan Fair at Contact. He is incredibly personable and will deliver the most cost effective solution for your business. Alan is equally comfortable working with larger blue chip organisations and small owner manager businesses. There are few people around with Alan’s ability in the arena and I have no hesitation in recommending his work to anyone.
I am a London based start up company that needed to build a “corporate standard” website to attract my corporate customers but I could not afford to pay London prices. Contact Online was the perfect solution as they offered very good value for money without compromising on service levels or quality. They very quickly understood the brief I gave them and quickly turned that into a professional website. They have also been very responsive to my ad hoc requests as and when I needed extra little bits doing. I would be more than happy to give a personal recommendation. Steve Coates. CEO ICT Refurbishment.
I haven’t got a clue about web design and especially the technicals required to make it all happen. So when I spoke to ‘Contact MultiMedia’ I was relieved for three reasons.
This company worked with me. They didn’t throw something together. They’d obviously thought about my requirements and then consulted to share their expertise regarding what would suit my needs. They are aspirational in nature and have a ‘can do’ approach which was frankly inspiring.
Then they taught me how to use the system which means I can update my website when I want to, without sending copy to and fro or going through some complicated process. There CMS is really easy to navigate, it’s brilliant. Finally the staff are professional and friendly. I’m well pleased with the service and am recommending them to all my friends.
I have employed Contact on a number of projects over the past five years and the value, quality and service have never been less than exceptional. Alan has the ability to integrate technical skills and web-based product knowledge with business insight, in such a way that their interventions are always meaningful and relevant, providing the best return on investment in the marketplace. I can’t recommend them highly enough and would be happy to talk to anyone that wanted to know more.
