Garage Doors

Chalfont Garage Doors, based in Chlafont St Peter, Buckinghamshire, are one of the UK’s major garage door installers. The owner approached Thisworks several years ago and asked us to revitalize an old website they had for the business which was doing nothing on Google and producing next to nothing in terms of enquiries. This website is now in its 2nd new build version and produces around 4,000 unique visitors per month and a steady flow of valuable new business.


The website ranks highly for a range of valuable keywords across most of the South East, the Home Counties and Greater London, which are the client’s target geographic sectors.

Log Cabins, Garden Buildings

Creative Living Cabins based in Surrey, design supply and install high quality log cabins, garden home offices & other outdoor leisure buildings. They approached Thisworks in 2010 because they were unhappy with both their website and the people who were managing it.

90% of their new business is now generated by the website. The business has grown from having one display village to now having three in various locations around Surrey. Thisworks also designed the Logo for this business plus all of its marketing material such as brochures etc.


When we took over the website in 2010 it was getting around 100 visitors per month. The website now gets between 5,000 and 6,000 visitors per month.

Coach Hire

ABC Coaches Ltd, established over 30 years, have a well-deserved reputation as one of the North West’s premier coach hire companies. They recently invested over £1 million pounds in new vehicles. ABC chose Thisworks to re-design and rebuild their website, which they believed didnt portay their business in the correct light, nor did it produce sufficient new business.


The website now ranks high for all their main keyword target sectors, and traffic has increased 10 fold. Enquiries have risen from single digits per month to hundreds.

Drainage Company

Yorkshire Drains asked Thisworks if we could improve their organic rankings in Google’s SERPS (search engine results pages) The company was spending a significant amount of money on Adwords PPC in an attempt to attract more traffic. We completely rebuilt the website, and focused our SEO efforts on the main geographic towns and cities within the client’s working area, which is most of the county of Yorkshire.


The website now dominates Google’s organic listings for a range of  keywords in every one of these areas. To such an extent the client has now ceased paying for PPC advertising.

Garage Services

Mitsiland are full service garage based in Denton, Greater Manchester. They specialise in 4 high end makes – Bentley, Land Rover, Jaguar & Mitsubishi. Mitsiland have been a client of Thisworks for around 8 years, and in this time we have built up an impressive SEO position for their website. This is the 4th version of their website, updated in 2018 to keep up with new technology.


Mitsiland have multiple Google Page 1 rankings, searched by make, for a series of  garage servicing & repair keywords in the Manchester, Stockport & Tameside area.


Rural Finance & Mortgages

Farm & Country Finance have been a client of Thisworks for 9 years. We also did their branding, logo etc. They operate in an extremely competitive sector, finance and loans. Their website now enjoys high organic rankings for many of their most sought after keywords such as ‘farm finance’ and ‘farm mortgages’. Their website is now the prime generator of their new business, having overtook niche print advertising.


The finance and loans sector on Google is one of the most competitive in the UK. Attaining high organic rankings is very difficult, but priceless when achieved.

Driving School, Intensive Courses

The client approached us initially in 2007, after using another SEO company but finding the results very disappointing. We redesigned and rebuilt the website and have improved the SEO to a point where NWCC are now #1 in their target areas in Manchester and the North West for several very competitive keywords, such as ‘intensive driving courses Manchester’. This website has produced literally thousands of enquiries for this client.


This website is another which we have rebuilt over the years, keeping it future proof and in line with Google’s best practice recommendations.
