Why Choose Us?
Cambridge Web Design & Digital Marketing
Essiem is a Cambridge based web design company which was established in 2012, working mainly with clients in the East of England. We like to think of ourselves as more than just a web design company and that’s why we take a unique approach when working with our clients.
Our number one focus is the success of our clients. We don’t just produce websites, we help our clients build successful businesses. For most companies, a website is their most valued tool with the most enormous potential - to put them in touch with customers nationally and perhaps internationally. When a company asks us to make them a website we understand the trust they are putting in us to help their business succeed. We take a personal approach and will always come and meet with you, to see your business in action and to understand how it works, how you generate sales and who your competition is. This gives us the best possible chance of building a website which will make your business soar.
Who we are
Meet the Team
Tom - Essiem Owner
Louise - Business Manager
"Hi, Im Tom the Director of Essiem. I have been obsessed with technology for as long as I can remember and have been designing and building websites professionally for over 12 years. I am a designer and developer by background and have worked with a wide range of industries on everything from basic startup sites to large e-commerce platforms, content management systems and learning management systems. I am fortunate to be supported by Louise the Essiem Business Manager who looks after the day-to-day running of things including business development, project management, marketing and finance.
We have set up a flexible team here at Essiem which we find works really well as we can draw on a range of 'super-specialists' to work with us on different projects depending on what the client needs. Our regular team includes Sam our SEO and digital marketing guru, Denis our PHP developer, Matt our social media manager and Louise our copywriter and content developer. We also have a network of other designers, developers and photographers who we contract in for specific projects.
I really value the relationship I am able to build with all of our customers so I make sure that I personally go and meet all clients and remain the main point of contact throughout the project process. This helps me to really get to know you and your business and ensure that the work we deliver as a team is of the highest possible standards.
I would welcome your call anytime and hope to be working with you soon on your next web project."

Welcome to Essiem. We walk you through our process and software with guidance on usage and set up regular meetings to ensure you always know how your project is progressing.

The second most important stage after discovery is planning your website to ensure that it is useful and intuitive for your customers. A full content review and page planning around this will impact the entire project, content is king.
So we know what your customers want from your website and we have planned the content to meet their needs. Time to make your website look stunning.
