Website Design Cheltenham Activates Yoga Club

Website Design Cheltenham has built up the new Active Yoga Club site.

Website Design Cheltenham has built up the new Active Yoga Club site.

Active Yoga Club was set up to help promote qualified, trained Yoga and Pilates instructors and teachers in the UK and provides information and booking for classes and events.

Yoga originated in India and was an holistic approach to lifestyle including physical, mental, and spiritual practices. It has become increasing popular in the West and practice has also spread to other parts of Asia. The word ‘yoga’ is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning ‘to yoke’, reflecting the fact that yoga aims to ‘yoke’ or link body and mind, enhancing complete well being.

In the West, yoga covers a wide range of styles and practices. Often, the main focus is on physical postures or ‘stretches’ (the asanas), breathing and relaxation-based techniques, often incorporating some form of meditation.

Various forms of yoga exist, from those that fit most closely with its original form comprising a whole approach to lifestyle, through to broad styles such as Hatha and Iyengar yoga and more innovative practices, including Bikram (‘hot yoga’) and laughter yoga.

Currently the UK yoga market is worth £812 million pa with 2.3% growth 2012-17 employing 15,953 people in 4118 businesses. However there was no UK mobile friendly central Yoga facility.

Website Design Cheltenham was briefed to build a mobile friendly, search engine optimised site which will publicise the various Yoga instructors and teachers- and allow people to book classes and events.

With smart phones increasingly dominating online researching, ordering and buying – the need to provide a mobile friendly service is now paramount.

Live Entertainment Acts for Christmas

Live Entertainment Acts for Christmas by Livestock Productions.

Live Entertainment Acts for Christmas by Livestock

With the Winter season well and truly upon us one of Website Design Cheltenham‘s clients Livestock Productions have revamped their online roster of live entertainment acts to reflect the changing seasons.

As such Livestock needed to update their online marketing strategy and tactics.

Accordingly, we reviewed their current approach and benchmarked it against several optimal approaches by their competitors and other “best in class” ecommerce organisations. Which we then used to create a set of low cost but achievable recommendations to better generate traffic, leads and sales.

After all- despite all of the technological hype a website is just about business – and making you money.

A reminder that focussing on the basics never goes amiss.

We then updated the search engine optimisation of their main acts pages and news blog posts. Next we revised their Call To Actions – making it easier once people find the acts that they are interested in to contact Livestock.

Thus the whole approach was about widening the Sales Funnel to not only gain extra traffic, but to convert that traffic into leads.

We also made a few suggestions as to how to improve their handling of those leads to better improve their administration and streamline those quotes, thus speeding up the process which again will improve the chances of gaining extra sales- and profits.

So, if you want your organisation’s website to make you more traffic, leads and sales by improving your online digital marketing, please contact us NOW or ring us on now on 01242 521967 to see how we can help you to make money as well!

So when you hear defeatists claim that all of the search engine rankings are dominated by the “big boys” and multinationals you now know otherwise.

Is our search engine ranking success “black hat stuffing”? Absolutely not!

We have been search engine optimising websites for nearly 20 years. It is a science, not an art as it is an explainable, repeatable process. Which if followed precisely could be done for you and your organisation as well.

However we say “could” rather than “will” deliberately – as there are no guarantees other than we will try our best for you. Equally these rankings don’t happen overnight. They can take weeks and months to achieve. Sometimes they happen sooner than later, but we never promise instant success. Patience is a necessity, not a virtue.

Gloucestershire Airport Webcam tops Google

Our new Gloucestershire Airport Webcam site now tops Google rankings

Our new Gloucestershire Airport Webcam site now tops Google rankings

When the leading helicopter pilot training flying school at Gloucestershire Airport the James Kenwright Helicopter Trainers asked us at website design cheltenham to build a new site to show the latest helicopter movements of their growing fleet of Robinson R22 and R44s we decided that setting up a webcam may be the answer to their thoughts.

So we researched the technical, legal and practical issues to overcome the various ramifications before building and launching the website itself.

Having tried an tested various alternatives we hit apon the current solution.

The next step was to search engine optimise the site so that not only the search engines like Google would find and rank the site, but that also humans- and more importantly trainee helicopter pilots would find the site. Thus generating traffic and leads to James Kenwright.

And we are now pleased to report that we are doing just that as the Gloucestershire Airport Webcam  site now tops Google’s listings!

JK Helicopter Training in Gloucestershire trains people to pass their helicopter pilot’s licence PPL(H) training instructor and helicopter gift pleasure flights from Staverton, Gloucestershire airport.

Based at Staverton Gloucestershire Airport they have over 27 years expertise in helping pilots to pass their PPL(H), Type Rating, Night Rating, CPL(H) and have many happy people who can recommend us as “highly skilled, quality helicopter training instructors

Website Redesigns and Secures Glos Credit Union

Website Design in Cheltenham has redesigned and secured the Gloucestershire Credit Union’s site.

Website Design in Cheltenham has redesigns and secured the Gloucestershire Credit Union's site.Website Design in Cheltenham  has already redesigned and built the Stroud Valley Credit Union‘s website in the County so taking over and upgrading the Glos Credit Union (GCU) site was a natural, logical extension of our secure and reliable services.

The existing GCU site had a series of issues which were highlighted when we had a review meeting at cyber security experts GCHQ a few months ago. As a result the Board of the GCU decided that major action was required to update the site to encourage greater customer usage by improving the security and resultant confidence in the site.

Now the website has a secure online application form so that people can apply for loans at their own convenience rather than relaying on slow, paper based applications. Which should also increase the number of applications.

Credit Unions are community organisations that offer a range of financial services to their members. They are locally based and ethically run offering an affordable way to borrow money as well as a safe and secure place to save it. Credit Unions are for everyone and serve everybody’s financial needs.

Credit union members make regular savings, as little or as much as they wish. These savings then form a common pool of money from which loans are made to members. Members who have been saving for a certain period of time (usually about 12 weeks) can apply for a loan at lower interest rates than those without savings. The interest charged on loans is the credit union’s income.

So, if you want your organisation’s website to make you more traffic, leads and sales by improving your security and reputation, please contact us NOW or ring us on now on 01242 521967 to see how we can help you to make money as well!

Website Design Cheltenham has been asked by the international, award winning singer and actress Emily Bradbury to secure and search engine optimise her site.

Having set up and built her eponymous site a couple of years ago, she has hitherto failed to get her site ranking on the first page of Google and also needs a bit of TLC to make the site more user friendly.

So we offered to do the search engine optimisation (SEO)  to help her in her endeavours. Having nearly 20 years of expertise in doing the same for others’ sites we feel that the process is not a “black hat” process but is a scientific, repeatable processes to achieve these goals.

Born in Hong Kong, Emily Bradbury is a Toronto-based performing artist currently residing in Egham, England as she completes her degree in Drama and Dance from Royal Holloway, University of London.

When starting at Royal Holloway in September 2016, Emily threw herself into auditioning for the Musical Theatre Society and got cast in their Autumn production of Bring It On. In the spring of 2017, the opportunity to shadow the producer of the Musical Theatre Society’s production of Spring Awakening gave her some new skills to add to her tool belt.

After a phenomenal year with the Musical Theatre Society, Emily was elected to be the Publicity Officer for the upcoming year 2017-18. This role includes coordinating all forms of social media and being the creative eye for the vision of the group.

Most recently, Emily was cast as the role of Crystal in Little Shop of Horrors with Ethereal Theatre Company where the show will be performed at the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2017.
