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!

Website Design Cheltenham bags Jack Straws Baskets

Website Design in Cheltenham has bagged Jack Straws Baskets.

Website Design in Cheltenham has bagged Jack Straws Baskets.Website Design in Cheltenham has been asked by Jack Straws Baskets to help them improve their online business.

The Jack Straws Baskets website has recently been mase responsive and secured with an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) and although it has some pretty good optimisation and Google product keyword rankings according to the owner Susie Banforth it could do with a little sprinkling of our gold dust.

Accordingly we went through our usual routine with any new client: although we know where we want to be, we have to work out exactly where we are to be able to best plot the road map forward. Not only because we are not always where we think we are, but it also gives us a benchmark against which to measure our progress.

We therefore provided a detailed listing of all of the product keyword phrase results and worked out the exact number of new visitors to the website.

Armed with this knowledge we are working on improving the search engine optimisation (SEO) of the key pages including the main product pages.

In addition we are building appropriate links to attract greater credibility to the site and build news stories along the way- which will also bulk the site up and keep Google happy in the long term.

So, if you want to get your website top of Google and increase your online business’s traffic, sales and profits then please contact us NOW or ring us on now to see how we can help you to make money as well!

Website Design vital for helicopter trainers

Website Design Cheltenham is “vital” for Gloucestershire helicopter trainers James Kenwright.

Website Design Cheltenham is "vital" for Gloucestershire helicopter trainers James Kenwright. Two years ago James Kenwright approached us at Website Design Cheltenham to help him build a new site for his business of training helicopter pilots based at Staverton, Gloucestershire airport.

Whilst James had over twenty years experience of training helicopter pilots to pass thier PPL(H), he had always worked for others. Now he wanted to run his own training business.

He also knew that the a website would be the most profitable and practical way to build his business- so he needed someone who was very search engine optimisation (SEO) savvy.

The natural way to find a seo expert was to search Google- which is how he found us. But our SEO expertise was only part of his process- he wanted a local business which could understand his approach- and in whom he could trust and depend.

So after a couple of meetings together we were hired and I’m pleased to say that we have both grown from strength to strength since.

At our annual review meeting recently James commented “Simon has been absolutely vital to my business. We depend on our website to generate new business for us and we have been profitable every single month since my business was formed.”

“Every month we get new applications and new approaches so our business is growing and they are all coming from our website- so Simon’s SEO expertise is pivotal to our business. I’m happy to call them part of the James Kenwright Helicopter Training team.”

Praise indeed!

UK shoppers top online spending league

Shoppers in the UK spend more online per person than those from any other country in the world.

Shoppers in the UK spend more online per person than those from any other country in the world.Analysis from Internet World Germany found that British shoppers spend an average of £1,050 a year, followed by the US, with £1,001. German shoppers came in third place, each spending an average of £915 via the internet each year.

Within Germany, found the analysis, the top 10 online retailers generate more than a third of total ecommerce sales. Amazon Amazon is the most popular online shop, with sales put at more than £4.9 billion, while fashion retailers Otto and Zalando recorded sales of almost £1.5 billion and £659 million respectively. Online accounts for 15.3% of total retail sales, excluding food.

“The average ecommerce spend per head spend in Germany is not far off UK and US levels,” said Saskia Müller, head of Internet World Germany. “With domestic and international online brands continuing to understand what’s important to German consumers and adding value to their services, there’s a lot of room for growth in an already mature market.”

However in the UK mobile’s share of visits to UK retail sites has increased to 64%.

Smartphone shopping is now the default for  U.K. shoppers with 64% of all website visits to retailers last year coming from mobile devices, according to digital market intelligence company, SimilarWeb.

The study revealed that on average 64.54% of visits to all online retail sites in the U.K last year were via mobile phones, compared to 35.46% for desktop. This reflected a further 2.63% increase for mobile’s market share in the online U.K retail market last year.

The UK now has a bigger share of mobile phone shopping than the U.S (55%), Germany (43%) and France (35%).  However India remained the standout leader for mobile shopping, with a 65% share, over desktop, last year.

On average, across 2015, all of the most popular 10 UK retail sites, including Amazon, eBay and Argos, registered a bigger share of visits from mobile, compared to desktop visits (see below).

The shift to mobile also represented a retail challenge — while on average U.K desktop visitors browsed 12.4 pages per session in 2015, this dropped to 7.3 pages when sites were visited via smartphones.

Similarly, on desktop, UK shoppers spent  7.21 minutes on an average retail site viewed from desktop last year, dropping  to an average of 5 minutes and 5 seconds on a mobile device.

The UK is now a European leader in mobile shopping, far ahead of France, and Germany.
