Digital Marketing Tools
I have numerous online & digital marketing skills and tools at my disposal to help you grow your business by attracting and converting customers.
Website Development

Your company website forms the core of your overall online presence. It is therefore vital that we develop your website following certain basics, some examples are:

  • Speed: Speed is not just a Google ranking factor, but if your web pages are slow to load you will lose traffic and hence revenue.
  • Mobile Friendly: Websites that are not mobile friendly will drop in Google rankings and provide a poor user experience for mobile users.
  • Ease of Use: Keep it simple, complicated websites will confuse and frustrate users. Stick to accepted norms.
  • Aesthetics: Colours, typography, layout, white space etc, all play a large role in creating a positive user experience.

Search Engine Optimisation

SEO is a vital function of digital marketing. It's what makes your website visible to your potential clients when they are searching for your products or services. Without SEO you are invisible.

  • Quality Traffic: In our experience organic website traffic is still the best quality traffic.
  • Rankings: Every industry is different, but the top 3 positions on a Google Search receive between 50%-60% of the total search traffic.
  • Long Tail Keywords: SEO enables us to optimise for longer search terms which are often a better indicator of buying intent.
