LibDems Cheltenham elections betting odds plummet

The betting odds for the Lib Dems to win the Cheltenham 2019 constituency election have plummeted.

The betting odds for the Lib Dems to win the Cheltenham 2019 constituency election have plummeted

At the beginning of the General Election William Hill quoted the LibDems odds of winning the Cheltenham constituency election as racing favourites at 1/10 and the Conservatives were on 4/1.

Since then the latest betting odds see the LibDems constantly drifting out now at 4/9 and Alex Chalk’s Conservative rapidly shortening to 13/8.

The latest Cheltenham constituency general election odds are quoted here.

Cheltonians need an MP from the governing party for future prosperity for our Town.

Whilst there are a number of issues on peoples’ minds the priority for Cheltonian electors ought to be simple – which candidate will propel Cheltenham to future prosperity?

When the Liberal Democrat Martin Horwood was MP from 2005 to 2015 he constantly campaigned to improve the railway station including extending the platforms and updating their car parks.

But as the LibDem MP was not a member of the ruling party he struggled forlornly to get any funding for the station improvements for 10 years.

However when Alex Chalk became the MP – as he was elected from the same party as the Government in 2015 he managed to organise and win the £10 million to achieve the station upgrades within a year. With the improvements being built right now after only a few years.

As Alex Chalk was born in Cheltenham’s suburbs and grew up here – as well as living here for a number of years he has considerable knowledge of what the town needs for the future – as well as an excellent record of achieving dramatic improvements.

Another example of Alex Chalk’s Conservative successes is the creation of the GCHQ Cyber Park – a huge £23 million development which will deliver thousands of well paid jobs in the constituency.

Conversely the LibDems want to close the Sandford Park Lido and build dozens of “affordable” flats on the scarce, green land.

All of which concludes that there is only one candidate that will improve Cheltenham’s prosperity- Alex Chalk’s Conservatives, as the odds of the LibDems winning an overall majority are quoted at 100/1 – the same odds as the likelihood of Labour winning the Cheltenham election.

The UK Holiday Accommodation Michael Paul packs Cheltenham Design to market their website.Michael Paul Holidays – the UK’s leading UK self catering holiday accommodation site has asked Website Design Cheltenham to help them with their marketing and to increase their sales.

Michael Paul has a real understanding, as do the property owners who list with him, that all holiday guests want to have a “good experience”, whatever that specifically means to them. Michael doesn’t list properties from owners who don’t understand customer service or don’t fully appreciate the need to put the guest’s needs first.

This means that customers know when they make their booking that there is an implied guarantee that all will be well on arrival and throughout the stay.

To make life even better for holiday makers Michael Paul guarantees to match teh price that they pay as he will not be beaten on price.

As such they are a reputable and growing business who needs to attract more people, bookings- and income – which is where we come in.

Having worked for Michael several years ago with search engine optimisation, content marketing, pay per click and email marketing it was a pleasure to be asked again to help him and his dozen staff.

As well as the above marketing channels he and his team also needs help with his offline marketing including press, brochures and leaflets. As well as his website.

Becoming part of a winning team means greater responsibilities but greater opportunities to make a bigger difference to use our decades long experience and expertise.

Trailer Tranporter ENDE wins big with Website Design Chelt

Trailer Tranporter experts ENDE are winning big with Website Design Cheltenham promoting their site.

Trailer Tranporter experts ENDE are winning big with Website Design Cheltenham promoting their site. Last April the trailer transporter experts ENDE approached Website Design Cheltenham to build them a site so that they could market their services and attract more business.

Accordingly we worked with ENDE to work out what they website to look like- starting with creating a new logo for their website and their business. We then proposed several design options to match their ambitions.

Once we agreed the “look and feel” the next step was to create a website with credibility that will appeal to their target audience. To aid in that respect we installed a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to their site- even though they don’t sell online – nor hold peoples’ payment details.

Being a new business it was important to develop a gravitas for both the search engines and potential new customers.

The next step was to optimise the whole site with a particular geographical emphasis to gain coverage over the whole of the UK.

To that end we then set up a news blog to expend their geographical coverage and reach – which means that they rank if not from Lands End to John O Groats, at least from Scotland to Cormwall.

And the most important bit – they are getting new business leads on a daily basis.

If you want your organisation’s website to make you more traffic, leads and sales by improving your search engine optimisation and 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!

Website Design Cheltenham booked by Dyslexia Author Sarah Cowell

Website Design Cheltenham has been booked to help Dyslexia Author Sarah Cowell

Website Design Cheltenham has been booked to help Dyslexia Author Sarah Cowell

Dyslexia author, tutor and assessor Sarah Cowell has just had two new books published- a dyslexia spelling workbook entitled Zebras Spell Really Well and a dyslexia maths workbook entitled Times Tables – It’s a doddle.

To make the most of Sarah Cowell’s hard work she needed her ecommerce website to be updated, but also given a fresh look and feel along with search engine optimisation so that prospective purchasers can find her new books in the first place.

To find someone with the skills and abilities – at an affordable rate she asked her Cotswolds bookkeeping and small business accountants at ESB Accountancy if they knew someone with the attributes. As Cheltenham Website Design built, search engine optimised and continue their online marketing of their own website they kindly recommended ourselves as being up to the job.

So Sarah approached us last month to achieve her goals. We thus set about updating and improving her online bookshop and redesigning key pages of her website to reflect her artistic requirements. As well as of course improving her optimisation.

As a result of our optimisation exploits Sarah Cowell has already has achieved a couple of first page rankings on Google for several of her dyslexia target keyword phrases.

We never guarantee ranking results, but given that we have been working at search engine optimisation for over two decades now we have a pretty good idea how to achieve positive results.

Sarah Cowell is a qualified Dyslexia Assessor, tutor and author who has written a growing number of books and wordkbooks. She is currently helping a growing number of local authorities including Gloucestershire to diagnose children and adults with dyslexia and create a learning framework to help them progress.

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!

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!
