At Lakewood, we witnessed a prevalent issue in the industry during our early stages – numerous clients were burdened with exorbitant costs for subpar WordPress and IT solutions. These solutions often involved the utilization of free themes on cheap shared hosting, with minimal support and client involvement. Determined to revolutionize the market, we embarked on a mission to provide businesses, regardless of their size, with superior online solutions that are meticulously maintained, SEO-friendly, secure, and lightning-fast.

Our pursuit of excellence arose from the realisation that high-quality WordPress consultancy, hosting, SEO services, and content management were primarily accessible to larger enterprises, leaving smaller businesses with limited options. The prevailing market was inundated with “hobbyist” web designers who would neglect projects after their launch, resulting in outdated websites vulnerable to security breaches and non-compliant with crucial Google algorithm updates. Recognising this gap, Lakewood emerged as a beacon of hope for smaller businesses, delivering affordable solutions without compromising on standards. We stand by our commitment to maintain and support all our projects for years to come.

In 2016, we introduced CloudCanvas, a comprehensive WordPress solution designed specifically for SMEs, eliminating the need for costly setup fees and monthly maintenance expenses. As our journey progressed, we integrated CloudCanvas into our core managed WordPress services at Lakewood Media, forging the path for our WordPress hosting solutions. Unlike generic, off-the-shelf hosting, our services are tailored to each client’s unique requirements, ensuring affordability, unparalleled speed, and uncompromising security. Additionally, in 2016, we proudly launched WP Helper, our dedicated WordPress support and maintenance service, offering one-off assistance as well as flexible monthly maintenance and support plans.

Looking ahead, our vision is to position Lakewood as a leading agency in the realms of WordPress and SEO. We are committed to sustained growth and continued excellence, empowering businesses of all sizes to thrive in the digital landscape.

Lakewood brings a personal and affordable approach to all projects.

Lakewood is still a small and concentrated agency and we think this gives us the upper hand. Small and concentrated allows us to work closely with all clients and offer an almost in-house service. Working with Lakewood is like having your own web and marketing department. We work on projects of any scale embracing big budget multinationals as well as smaller start-up projects.

Since our beginning, we have evolved in many ways and learnt more than we could have ever imagined. However, our values and aims have remained the same, to provide a truly personal service that helps your business increase revenue.
