Project Description

Customers existing website was not working properly

Tony’s attention to detail and support has been fantastic – Thank you”

I was approached by Judith & Peter to assist them with their existing website. They had employed a previous developer to create a website, which they used Squarespace, but it wasn’t finished. It was actually quite poor. No content, 1 or 2 images, definitely not what Judith expected.

Based in Ripponden, Halifax and met up with the couple and discussed their problems and what they wanted. It was pretty simple, a website that worked and showcased the talent of Peter’s 40 years experience hand crafting period doors for listed buildings, old churches etc

The website is listed on page 1 of Google

At the time of writing this case study (30th April 2020), I thought I would search for ‘hand crafted doors halifax’ to see where the website was ranked in Google. The result was fantastic. At the top of page 1! Try for yourself: https://www.google.com/search?q=hand+crafted+doors+halifax

Lower down the Google results page, 3 of the 4 images showing for ‘hand crafted door halifax’ were from Judith & Peter’s website too! Happy result! 🙂

A website to be proud of

The client was over the moon with the design and it exceeded their expectations. To be honest, it wasn’t hard after seeing their original website!

As part of the agreement with the couple, I suggested moving away from Squarespace. As good as they make it out to be, it has very limited functionality.

I set them up with a new web hosting account with SiteGround. I 100% recommend them. I’ve used many web hosts over the years. All boosting to be the best, but until you use them, you soon find out there servers are overloaded, their customer support is terrible, or just not reliable enough to keep the websites online.

I also transferred their domain name to SiteGround from GoDaddy. Don’t get me started on GoDaddy! A nightmare of a process to transfer the domain away from them. Got there in the end.

On top of everything else, I also set them up with their business email addresses. I setup all their Google accounts needed so they can track website visitors, ensure their website was properly indexed and found properly in local searches.

You can take a look at the full design I created below. As well as visit Judith’s and Peter’s website.

So, if you have an existing website that you are not happy with, it’s not doing its job and not getting any results, then please get in touch. I would be more than happy to help you turn a corner and start taking new steps in the right direction, finishing with a wonderful new website you would be proud to show the world.

Thanks Tony.
