Jason Woodford

Chief Executive, SiteVisibility, 

Jason started the company now called SiteVisibility when he bought Academy Internet from the liquidator in 2002. The company was already one of the leading Internet marketing training consultancies, but after deciding to specialise in search engine marketing they took it to a point where it was ranked as one of the 50 fastest growing companies in the UK in 2007, 2008 and 2009 by the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 index.

Following angel investment, in February 2008 Jason acquired a small but respected SEO agency called SiteVisibility with which they merged their SEO and PPC operations whilst selling their e-learning business to Redtray.

Jason is passionate about working with ambitious entrepreneurs and businesses to achieve their goals online. Seeing employees grow also brings great personal satisfaction, as when, for example, ex-trainees have developed into professional consultants at the top of their game.

SiteVisibility won the Business in the Community Small Company of the Year award in 2007. Currently the company helps support:

  • Sussex Wildlife Trust through providing internet marketing
  • The University of Brighton, by sponsoring a digital marketing course and providing placement opportunities.
  • NSPCC with their efforts to develop business engagement in Brighton and Hove.

They are also founder members of Wired Sussex which supports and strengthen the local digital business community on the worldwide stage.
