The History of Zest City

Zest City was set up in 1999 by Scott Whitehead, initially offering web hosting and search marketing services

Studying advice from Robert Woodhead and Robert Brady, he soon got a strong reputation for search engine optimisation and marketing, and got zestcity to the lofty accolade as one of the top 100,000 most visited websites in the world, according to Alexa Rankings. Many people came to Zest City website for advice about online marketing, in these days before blogging became so prolific.

This extensive traffic meant Scott was able to pick and choose his projects and who to work with, and a team of consultants came together to offer a range of web services.

In 2005 Zest City won awards for Best Use of Information Technology for our project to syndicate newsfeeds using JavaScript, which saw Zest City win clients across the globe, including several prestigious Universities.

As the technology and possibilities have updates, so has our knowledge – we are recognised as one of the more forward thinking agencies.

Scott has been invited to speak at a range internet marketing events, and ran courses for Business Link South East.

Zest City now has 46 contractors we work with regularly providing world class design and marketing services. We work with a range of start ups and small businesses to police forces, charities and international corporations.

We may have grown, but our ethics remain the same.

We help clients to achieve a strong return on their investment in their website and web marketing services.

How do we do that? Well the methods are styled to each business, there is no 1 size fits all.

But to give you some ideas of what we may consider, we have undertaken projects including


Some of the above may be very relevant for your project, some of it will not but the only way to be sure is to discuss your business, your goals and your objectives, and what you have to work with.

With 14 years experience and growing, and 46 contractors, we know what works… and what doesn’t. And we are very happy to help pass this expertise to our clients.
