We are firm believers that your website should be one of your biggest assets in connecting with your customers. It should be hard working, customers should be able to navigate and find what they want with relative ease.

There’s no reason it can’t be both stunningly designed and simple to use.

Most of all, it should work for you. Whether that is in getting customers and potential customers to buy something, or reach out and get in contact with you it should help you and your business.

We’re a professional design agency. We’ve designed and built lots of websites for lots of industries and we review and change many more each year. Every website we build is carefully thought out by our team – how does it look, how does it work, what’s the client journey, what is the business aim. These are all considered to make your website as effective as possible.

We build responsive websites with search engine optimisation and conversions in mind for every page. We need to make sure to balance out what the visitor is looking for with what you want them to do.

We also think about how Google will read your website and consider the future of your business if you are considering ads through social or Google.

And we don’t leave you in the lurch. We can build your website and go, but most will have some sort of ongoing support in place – regular updates, full access for you and your team, initial training so you know can confidently take over the daily management of any small changes that need made.

We want you to be blown away by what we create for you and in the unlikely instance that you’re not, we’ll work with you until you are.

Speed of Light Digital was originally formed when the founders noticed a lack of revenue centred digital agencies in the market. Many were too focused on ‘soft’ returns, metrics like followers, likes.

We knew that you could aggressively target scalable sales, revenue and profit even with a small digital footprint.

A few of us joined forces, named ourselves after the rate at which people scroll through media and started getting some great results for our clients.

We’ve only went from strength to strength.



Our digital marketing professionals can review your marketing, your website, and customer journey. We’ll even tell you what we would do – you can take that plan and DIY-it, or you can get us to implement it.

What our clients say

Derek Watt
Oscars Restaurant & Premier Leisure Cinema

Speed Of Light Digital totally redefined how we market our business online. From re-developing our independent cinema website to allowing meal deals and vouchers to be sold online, right through to assisting us with a better approach to marketing Oscars Restaurant.

The guys have made a massive difference to our online presence, and our bottom line. Our non-voucher revenue went up by 39% since they have been actively managing an engagement campaign to drive footfall through our doors.

We’ve always had a good offering, but getting that social ‘voice’ to connect with our customers was hard. We don’t have that expertise in house, and we didn’t have enough work to justify hiring a full time person so what Speed of Light does works perfect for us.

With us, they act like an additional person on our team. They check in with us regularly, have a monthly catch up and keep our management and staff abreast of what they’re doing. Then they check in with our cinema team to make sure the new releases are on the website, up to date, correct details/times etc.

Their approach to our business made us feel like they treated it like it was their business. Their knowledge and experience has been our success in the last few years!

Scott Mould
Cunninghame Housing Association
Marketing & Publications Manager

Our previous website was proving very difficult for service users and stakeholders to navigate. Speed Of Light Digital came in and worked with us to define the user journey and the business goals of the new project and delivered a modern user friendly business website.

Estate Agency
Owner & Managing Director

We asked Speed of Light to lay down some training for our team on social media. Within 3 days our reach had doubled, our engagement trebled and we got the same amount of inbound leads from our social media channels than we had in the entire last month, and we had only started 2 of their strategies (they sent us off to plan 7!). Phenomenal.

Succinct and straight to the point. “These strategies are tried and tested”.
They were. And they worked.

Even the biggest believer in our team didn’t expect to see the numbers coming through as they did. We got the first lead before they had left – simply by asking our audience for that engagement. I’m pretty sure the boss said a swear word under her voice when we told her. We work in a high margin industry too, so the few days of training that Speed of Light gave us was paid for within the week.

We’ve used the team again to train new people that come on, and to occasionally give refreshers to the team on what’s happening in social media world and to keep us up to date with new developments.

I’ve already said it but PHENOMENAL. You can’t afford to not call them.

Niche Wine Company
Marketing Manager

Our site was languishing as our team didn’t know how to best exploit SEO. It had been set up in a hurry by a friend of one of the owners.

We asked Speed of Light for a review, asked them to implement it and watched our analytics. Slowly but surely our organic traffic increased, there were month on month increases, topping out after about 4-6 months at around 9% on average and topping 15% some months.

The team were much quicker than I expected them to be, and certainly not as expensive as some agencies that we had quoting for the work.

We’ve continued to work with them for quarterly reviews on what we’re doing and what steps to take to keep ahead of the game and their suggestions are great.

Their business and growth ideas come from grade A business schools, this team are not your typical agency! And you’ll find they act like an extension of your team, interacting with a number of stakeholders in the business seamlessly.

Still not sure what you need?

It can all be confusing, reach out, tell us what you’re currently doing and what your goals are and we’ll help with some guidance on what we would do for you.

No obligation. No fee. Just a friendly chat to see how we might help.

Website Development FAQs

Our most frequently asked questions

The answer to this depends on the full functionality of the site. If it is a few pages for a small local firm, it may only take a few weeks. However, if this is a full eCommerce site for a company with thousands of products it might take 6-8 weeks for full completion. Ideally we would get all of the “assets” first (images, service/products, portfolios), which saves delays at both ends.

Of course. You can be as involved as you wish. We will speak to you initially to get the lay of what you need and we can mock up a basic structure, after that our creative geniuses can implement colour schemes and the look and feel that you think you need. We want you to think this is perfect.

This sort of refers back to our earlier answer – it depends. If this is a small site, only a few pages it can be very inexpensive to get the site up and running. If you wanted a fully managed eCommerce website with hundreds of products it will get a bit pricier. As technology has moved on in the past few years we have been able to bring down the time it takes to build a site so this represents a big cost saving for you.
