About Us

Our mission is to drive targeted traffic to your eCommerce site and to make your business more profitable…without it costing the earth. The thing we love about the internet is that it gives everyone a level playing field, where the underdogs and small businesses can compete with the big guys.

As an eCommerce business, your website is its home and therefore, before you can compete with the best, we need to help you get your house in order.

3 Reasons To Hire Us

There’s nothing sneaky about our eCommerce expertise

If you’re still undecided as to why you should choose us to help grow your online business, let us persuade you.

We get it

Your eCommerce site may look great and be ranked 1st in search engines, but we understand that increased sales and profits should always be the end goal. Otherwise, what’s the point?

We’re boutique

We know we’re a small consultancy and we don’t have the thrills and spills of the “big dogs” but what we lack in scale we make up for in focus, expertise and dedication to your business. Your goals are always our top priority.

We're obsessive

We love what we do and spend a little too much time at our computers, much to the chagrin of our families! Honestly, we’re not happy unless we’re making your business more successful or else we’d feel like failures.

Meet The Team

Alex is the founder of Ninja Commerce. He learnt to build websites while studying business and marketing at university (and running an eCommerce business on the side) and his love for it spiralled out of control from there. Before founding Ninja Commerce, Alex worked as an SEO manager for a digital marketing agency, where he honed his skills.

A self-confessed computer geek, Alex is passionate about web development and how it impacts on business success, especially for small businesses. He often obsesses about the little details that could make a big difference. He isn’t happy unless he’s knee-deep in either data and code or creating a new script that improves our client’s site and makes their daily life easier in some way. He can also do unnatural things with an Excel spreadsheet.

In the rare occasion that you’ll find him outside of the office, he will probably be either on his bike, quenching his wanderlust by travelling or learning a new language.

Neil has 25 years experience in the business development sector, he has worked in everything from financial services, accountancy to the wine trade. Neil’s real skill is in helping businesses to make the most of opportunities for growth, no matter what the niche.

During his career Neil has ‘owner managed’ two businesses of his own, including a successful online wine store, and has extensive experience of e-commerce start-ups, having successfully built, launched and run his own websites.

Neil is also an accomplished speaker and presenter and often runs our Ninja Commerce seminar days, to help local e-commerce business owners to better their own marketing efforts.

Lee is our outreach manager, which means that he spends most of the time persuading people that our clients’ websites are awesomely linkable (which they will be when we’re done with them). Considering the power of link-building when it comes to SEO, this is a pretty important role.

Lee is also passionate about graphic & web design. In fact, his face positively lights up anytime he gets to use Photoshop! As a creative person, Lee enjoys the many aspects of design and expression that come with creating dynamic websites & developing eye-catching graphics.

Lee is a coffee aficionado and spends his spare time pursuing the finest blends. His favourite beans come from South America; specifically, Brazil. He also enjoys creating electronic music in his spare time.

(When asked for a fun fact for this bio) “81% of emails sent every day are spam… Oh, you meant a fact about me?”

Steve is our account manager. He makes sure our clients get the best possible result from every single penny they spend. Nothing excites him more than an on-time, on-budget, well executed project. He’s strange like that.

After studying Marketing and Business Management at university, Steve became marketing manager for a large insurance company, working with some of the country’s top retail brands. Realising it’s no fun selling something nobody wants to buy, Steve turned to his passion – helping small businesses achieve their online goals.

A perfectionist at heart, Steve’s keen eye for detail ensures the user experience and design is second to none. He’s also a master at translating tech-ninja language into everyday plain English that anyone can understand.

Outside the office, you’ll find Steve in his natural habitat – on the golf course, where he tries and fails each week to win, before finding solace in a nice cup of tea and a biscuit (or several).

“A man without a beard is like bread without a crust”

A marketing man through and through, Marty loves to get into the nitty-gritty of our client’s accounts and discover new ways to bring in traffic.

While studying Biology and Biochemistry at university, Marty discovered that he hated spending time in labs. So he turned his analytical eye towards the world of marketing instead. Happiest when knee-deep in a spreadsheet or up to his eyeballs in imaginative writing, Marty delights in projects that allow him to be both creative and downright thorough.

Marty spends his spare time cleaning up after the whirlwind of energy that is his daughter and, in those rare moments of rest, playing on his Nintendo consoles. Challenge him to a race on Mario Kart if you dare.

3 Things About Us

We Are Coffee Snobs

Apart from Steve, who is a little odd, the Ninja Commerce team love coffee. You could say that the bean juice elixir is our lifeblood. If you prefer instant coffee, it’s best you don’t speak to us (just kidding!).

We’re Not Really Assassins

Although we have Ninja in our name, we’re cuddly really. We just think that they’re cool, and like a ninja, we prefer to do our work in the background so that your business takes the spotlight.

We’re Pretty Geeky

We fully embrace our tech-nerd personas and scream if we have to wear a suit or tie. We also get pensive about grammar and know our subjunctive moods from our conditional moods.
