WordPress Specialists based in London, UK | WordPress Company

We deliver great looking sites with user-friendly content management systems that search engines will love from day one.


Our History

AWESEM was founded by Olaf Spinkel in 2009.  At first we concentrated on improving client site search engine rankings through search engine optimisation (SEO) but have gradually moved to become a web design and build WordPress agency offering ongoing support to our clients.

AWESEM is primarily an agency business but we also run a few of our own websites where we can practise what we preach and keep up to date with what it’s like to be a client.

In addition to agency work and our own sites, AWESEM design and build WordPress themes.  These are templates that can be used to form the basis of a website.  Most of our work is sold on ThemeForest and you can view our portfolio here.  

Having a strong background in affiliate marketing, AWESEM had been asked a number of times about creating a theme for comparison websites.  About a year later in 2012, the first version of ‘Compare’ was launched along with a plug-in called ‘Compare+’.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is divided into two ideals.  The first is that a site owner should be able to manage their site within their own level of technical expertise, no matter what that level is.  The second is that every site should be as friendly as possible to a search engine from launch.

We aspire to make every client a long term partner.  By making sites that are easy to manage the conversations we are able to have are more about long term strategy than how to change an image or line of copy.

Finally, we practice what we preach.  The chances are you found us through either a recommendation or a search engine.  We rank highly for our top keywords, pay attention to the design of our website and make sure that we can change it easily.


Our Team

Who’s involved with AWESEM?

Our office is located on the 24th Floor of Portland House in Victoria, London.

We have great views over London with its famous sights such Big Ben, the London Eye, St Paul's, The City and The Shard to name a few!



Who do we work with?

At AWESEM, we’ve been using Purely.domains (Pipeten) since 2009 and Purely’s straightforward domain management interface, low prices and world class support have won us over.

We partnered with Sucuri for website security, malware scanning and monitoring of our websites.

WPML.org are the creators of the “The WordPress Multilingual” Plugin which provides functionality to build and maintain multilingual sites. It’s powerful enough for large publishing sites or corporate sites, yet simple enough for blogs.

Established in 2000, even before Google launched AdWords, DBD Media are a close-knit team of search specialists, as passionate about digital marketing today as they were then. DBD Media are all about best practice, transparency and delivering great results.

We firmly recommend WP Engine as a WordPress Hosting provider. Mainly because of their unique caching technology which means that your sites tend to load very quickly as well as important features such as automated backups and strong emphasis on security.
