Who we are

At Pivotal Web Solutions, we are an award-winning group of friendly social media strategists, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) professionals and website designers in Brighouse, West Yorkshire who are enthusiastic about what we do.

We operate from our town centre studio in Brighouse, West Yorkshire, providing a local contact for you to meet us face-to-face so we can properly discuss how to grow your business, transform your brand and make your life better.

We work on big challenges in our tightknit team in honest collaboration with our clients, taking onboard your ideas and adding our creative expertise to create a website and digital strategy you and your business can be proud of.

Our Two-Pronged Approach To Digital Strategy

We believe in a two-pronged approach to your digital strategy. It’s no use having a website that’s visible in search engine results but that lets the website user down by being slow to load and difficult to navigate and use. Likewise, it’s pointless having a stunningly designed website if no one can find it on search engines.

We can create a digital marketing presence for your business that easily helps your audience on their journey from discovering your business, to becoming your biggest fan and paying customers. We do this through building fresh-thinking websites that are optimised for your customers’ smartphones and tablets, helping your brand grow and be heard on social media by engaging with, listening to and understanding your audience and bringing your website to the top of Search Engines like Google (SEO).

We don’t have long-term relationships with our clients by accident; Customer satisfaction comes naturally to us. We aim to work with you at every stage- from a blank canvas to a fully developed marketing strategy and website, keeping within your budget and offering a fast turnaround.

Supporting Brighouse Arts and Culture

Being proud to be integrated into the local community, we happily support local arts and culture organisations such as Brighouse Theatre Productions and Brighouse Central Music Academy via Website and Social Media Management services.

We have lots to celebrate this year, including becoming one of the only certified Google Partners in West Yorkshire and reaching our 10th business anniversary!

This year has also seen us launch our new handy and quick YouTube social media for business and WordPress training videos.

Our Team

Phil Hatfield

Website Developer & Programmer

I’m Phil Hatfield, and I believe that the important thing to always remember, is every website will be a very important part of the customer’s sales and marketing of their company. From grass roots, being the only person brave enough to turn on the Office PC back in the ‘80s, I became an IT Manager, which then soon became the Program Application Developer on a mainframe computer system. As websites rose to strength as a powerful marketing tool for the company, I changed from mainframe programmer to HTML website coder which, luckily, I have always enjoyed and led to the founding of Pivotal in 2007. When I’m not working on websites, I’m most likely trying to get a hole-in-one on the golf course!

Skills and Experience

  • HTML, CSS, PHP & MySQL developments.
  • Developer of WordPress and Ecommerce websites for various industries.
  • Search Engine Optimisation developer.
  • Managing the brilliant Pivotal team and driving sales.

I’m Karys Moffat and since starting at Pivotal Web Solutions it feels like I’ve taken every role I can get my hands on! I started as the Social Media Coordinator before training in advanced SEO techniques for websites and from there growing into my current role as WordPress and Website Developer. Keen to pass on the benefits of WordPress I now run our friendly WordPress one-to-one courses. I am now the official Happiness Engineer of the Pivotal Web Solutions team (not before my morning coffee though!) and a trained Google Adwords Specialist. Away from combating HTML code, you’ll most likely find me playing the guitar (or the ukulele!) or enjoying a good indie music festival!
