Refining The Website

Upon our initial engagement with this client, their website was outdated. The directors identified key challenges with their online presence, including: 

  • They couldn’t identify their ideal customers

  • They had a very small marketing budget

  • They had relied mostly on word-of-mouth

JDR enhanced their website with continuous SEO, addressing errors, optimising site speed, and setting up Google optimisation. As a result, their SEO keyword rankings surged, achieving an overall ranking of 19,638. Currently, they hold 16 keywords ranking between 1st and 8th position on Google. Since the business is in a niche market, it would be easier to rank on Google and to find their pages to find where their competitors are missing. Hence why the growth of in SEO was quite exponential. 

Moving To Inbound Marketing 

Following the client's goals we put together a tailored marketing programme for them. Our goal was to implement an inbound marketing programme which would ensure consistent marketing activity, attract their ideal customers and deliver a new website.

The programme included: 

  • Marketing Strategy - we created an SEO strategy, developed target personas, and developed a conversion strategy.

  • Website Design - we created a custom design to modernise the look, feel and user experience of the site.

  • SEO - (search engine optimisation) - we optimised the new website and began an ongoing SEO campaign.

  • Google Ads management - we set up and managed Google pay-per-click advertising for them.

  • Content marketing- regular blog articles written, published and promoted across social media.

  • Lead generation - we applied several conversion rate optimisation strategies to the website and also created PDF guides to use as part of online lead generation.

Here are the benefits the programme brought to the business:
