Website Design Cheltenham sends out Livestock Newsletters

Website Design Cheltenham has been sending out a number of GDPR email newsletters for clients including Livestock Productions.With the GDPR deadline looming Website Design Cheltenham has been sending out a number of email newsletters for clients including Livestock Productions.

With the EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) starting in May 25th we at Website Design Cheltenham have been helping a number of our clients including Livestock Productions prepare and in some cases set up processes to meet the new regulations.

The new data laws concern the “personally identifiable data” which companies hold, starting with the basic question- do you actually need the data that you are holding on to.

When I tell clients that they may well lose half of their databases – they are understandably pretty peeved. But when we send out email newsletters that it what we find- less than half of the recipients can not be bothered to click the Opt In link – even of we make it as easy as possible with just one click.

However when I then ask clients the question – what are the odds of someone who doesn’t bother to even click on your newsletter actually picking up the phone or contacting you to buy something off you, the penny starts to fall when they realise that their cherished database isn’t quite the goldmine that they were hoping it was.

So we have tried to make it as easy as possible for people and hold clients’ hands to comply with the GDPR and the UK’s ICO Information Commissioner. Because it is not just fear of being caught out, but that actually people – humans you and I that care how our data is treated. And it someone rides rough shod over our data then we are not going to trust businesses to look after it and go to their competitors.

So it is actually good business to get your good data handling processes right and in place.

Website Design Cheltenham – 20 years old!

Website Design Cheltenham has been helping people and businesses for 20 years!

 Website Design Cheltenham has been helping people and businesses for 20 years!
On February 6th 1998 Website Design Cheltenham was founded as part of the WiseMoney.com group to help the Cheltenham, UK and global community.

Our goal then – and now is to help people make money from and through the Internet.

There are plenty of salespeople who claim that they can build a website for you for only a few Pounds. But what is the point of all of that effort- and expense, if you don’t then make money from it?

We use the best and latest best practice processes to transform and build businesses- fundamentally cutting through the hype of marketing and technology.

Our no nonsense “white hat” sustainable, professional and ethical approach is based on our 20 years of repeatable successes for all business types, anywhere.

Why are we only now “blowing our own trumpet” about our success a month late? Well, we have been so busy welcoming three new clients to our group this year and we were focussed on helping them – rather than on our own marketing. A true case of “cobblers shoes”!

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 supports Safer Internet Day

Website Design in Cheltenham is backing Safer Internet Day which is building online safety practices with young people

Website Design in Cheltenham is backing Safer Internet Day which is building online safety practices with young people
Many organisations including Website Design Cheltenham around the UK are contributing to the important work on making the internet a safer place for everyone

Tuesday 6 February marks Safer Internet Day 2018. Using the hashtag #SID2018, organisations globally will celebrate the safe and positive use of technology.

In Britain, the UK Safer Internet Centre, will be coordinating the activities of over 100 countries to “unite for a better internet”. Last year’s #SID2017 initiative saw its highest engagement with 1,645 UK organisations supporting the event. Some 42% of children aged 8-17 and 23% of parents heard about the day in 2017, and this year we hope to see more people aware and presented with the online resources to help young people navigate the web effectively and safely.

To achieve this, tech businesses can easily support the initiative by promoting and raising awareness through social media and using #SID2018. Some organisations will be going the extra mile by running events and creating resources that will be getting updated on an ongoing basis.

For example, the South West Grid for Learning run sessions for children, staff and parents throughout the year. Activities such as this mean a lot more schools directly working to involve parents actively, including online safety in the curriculum, and even empowering students in peer-to-peer activities to help each other stay safe.

Safe and secure environment

The idea of supporting #SID2018 is that we work throughout the year to ensure the internet is a safe, secure environment for young people at all times. This is not to negate the ongoing challenge that new technologies emerge every year, which adds complexity to this issue. Nonetheless, we need to understand that this evolving environment is one that our young children must move with, as it is likely to be them who will be using these technologies most in their future jobs, lives and relationships.

In a time where the UK must fill a digital skills gap, an acute understanding and practice of online safety education must evolve in parallel with the innovation of new products and services. This will enable individuals now and in the future to be safe, active digital citizens.

A number of organisations working in partnership with UK industry to tackle illegal content issues, such as WePROTECT, Global Alliance and the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), are excellent sources of information. The Royal Foundation’s Cyberbullying Taskforce has also set up a new code for children which offers simple steps to help tackle cyber bullying – Stop, speak, support.

There are also technical solutions provided by online services such as Google’s Safe Search function and YouTube Kids, as well as Instagram’s keyword moderation tool which allows parents and users to block comments that contain inappropriate language.

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.

SME Cyber Prevention Glos Client Tops Google Rankings

Our SME Cyber Prevention Client in Gloucestershire Cyber139 is topping Google’s search results rankings.

Our SME Cyber Prevention Client in Gloucestershire Cyber139 is topping Google's search results rankings.
Not only does Website Design Cheltenham’s client Cyber139 top Google search results rankings – they also appear at number 2, number 3, number 4 and number 5- which is nearly as good as the Beatles’ invasion and domination of the US singles record charts in 1964.

Oh and their neighbour in Cheltenham GCHQ? Well they have a solitary ranking at the foot of Google’s first page at number 10.

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.

So, if you want your business’s search engine optimisation and Google digital marketing capabilities to take off into the millions 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!
