Who We Are
Digital Forest Interactive is a Website consultancy with genuine passion for web design and online success. With more than twenty years
experience, we have deployed dynamic websites and applications for both public and private organisations of all sizes. But that doesn’t

What We Do
Things have moved on in a very short space of time and having a corporate presence online isn’t just about having a website anymore
- it’s about having an Online Strategy. Yes - definitely - you need a great-looking website and rest assured, we know a thing
or two about those! But beyond that, there’s all the ‘stuff’ that needs to happen behind the scenes to ensure that
your website is actually working for you. Yes, the site is built and it looks amazing- but now what?
The devil’s in the detail… Does your website offer the services that discerning online customers have come to expect? Is it optimised for search engines so that
yours is the site people see first when they type keywords into Google (other search engines are available!). Are you promoting your
organisation effectively via social media? Do you have the tools to know how effective all of this is?
We know that it can all seem a daunting prospect at first, which is why Digital Forest offer a range of services to help you establish
your own strategy from the ground up. From web design and build through to SEO services and digital marketing - we’re here to
help every step of the way
How We Do It
We start by listening. What do you need to achieve and how would you like to achieve it? Whether you need a brand new website designed
from scratch, or whether you have an existing site that needs to be extended - or perhaps you’re not really sure but you know
you need to completely re-think your organisation’s online strategy. Whatever the project, we listen to your ideas and your requirements
and then we help you to make the right decisions.
It’s not you, it’s me… In our experience, people are no longer so keen to hand over their online development to a remote agency with little input until the
project is finished. Our clients want to know who they’re working with and they want to be involved. They want a relationship.
At Digital Forest, we’re not afraid of commitment - in fact we thrive on it. Our aim is always to build strong, transparent,
ongoing relationships with our clients - we’re less like a third party agency and much more like a member of your team.
Our approach is entirely flexible and we work in a way that suits you. It’s important for us to know our clients because a website
is a reflection of you - but we can still work alongside incumbent agencies and third parties if required (we always play nicely!).
