The services I offer:

Website auditing

A written assessment of your website, indentifying where it might be falling short of achieving your objectives. It will include:

Search engine optimisation

Strategies to improve your search rankings and drive more traffic to your website.

A picture paints a thousand words; pity search engines can't read them. Having an attractive website full of stunning photos that show off your business is great, provided that people can find your site to look at them. Unfortunately, site crawlers that index your web pages and tell search engines what's on them can only see text. If you leave it up to your photos to do the talking for you, then you need to provide a text description of the images for the crawlers, or all they'll see is empty space. That's bad news if you want to rank high in organic search results.

Mobile-friendliness

Is your site mobile friendly? If not you may appear lower in search results as search engines are now favouring sites that render properly on mobile screens. In this day and age a large percentage of web users are on mobile devices so it pays to have a site that retains its functionality and slick appearance on smaller screens.

User-friendliness

Is your site user friendly? Is your site easy to navigate? Is the text easy to scan? Can users share your content easily? Does it have a long loading time?

Keywords

Is your content relevant? Does your site contain the search terms you want to rank for?

Business Frog can give your site an SEO report and make some recommendations for changes. If the recommended changes are small you can pass them on to your IT manager. If, however, your site is a bit outdated and the list of recommended changes is long, you could consider starting from scratch with a new site.

Web Design

A service offered in conjunction with Nicky Ellakirk at ck26.net, who ensures your website is flawless, clean, easy to navigate and visually stunning. Meanwhile I make sure it achieves its purpose, be that generating leads, boosting sales, branding or securing donations to a cause.

Just let me know what the site needs to do. Is its primary function to convey information? Or does it need to inspire visitors to do something, like pick up the phone, fill in an enquiry form, download a pdf, watch a video, make a purchase, etc. Do you have a rough idea how you want the site to look, what colours it should be, what fonts the text should appear in, or do we have a blank canvas to play with? Most importantly, what search terms do you want to rank for? Give me an outline of what you want and Nicky and I will estimate timescales and costs. We'll make some preliminary designs that you can check over before construction begins, and if you're happy, we'll deliver a responsive, mobile-friendly, search engine optimised site to your specifications. Our sites are delivered with Google analytics enabled and with cookie policy banner. Interested? Drop us an email.

Social Media Strategy

Content Strategy

If your current posts are getting a lukewarm response and you're not sure how to improve engagement, I can provide some advice about content that might resonate more with your followers. You may need to alter your timings, frequency of posting, post length, or you may need to make your posts more visual with some eyecatching images. You may also need to rethink your strategy if you are always trying to sell, sell, sell. Nobody likes a pushy salesman.

Promotional Document Design

This is another service I offer in conjunction with ck26.net. I will come up with a design concept based on your requirements and then Nicky will handle production. We can design all manner of documents from business cards to executive summaries. If you have branding guidelines then we can easily work to these. Tell us if we have a completely blank canvas to work with or if you have text and images you want us to incorporate. You can see a whole range of documents that we have worked on here, including posters and e-newsletters.
