A New Look for a New Season – The Ultimate Adventure Centre Undergoes Rebranding

UAC_frontsign7ftx3ft

Whilst The Ultimate Adventure Centre may shut its doors for activities during the winter, the workload behind the scenes is busier than ever! The winter of 2013 has seen us undertake an exciting 3 stage rebranding project with one of Devon’s top tourist attractions to give it a new face for 2014.

Stage 1 – Complete Marketing Solutions teamed up with Florian Zumfelde Design Studio to create new logo and brand identity. When you’re competing for tourism business in North Devon – one of the UK’s top tourist destinations – getting the branding right to catch the eye of visitors is key to making a lasting impression, therefore we had to get this right! Once the artwork and visual assets for the rebranding were finalised, we redesigned the website to give its new look for 2014!

Stage 2: Whilst updating the image of the website, we made some site changes in order to increase engagement, aid customer flow and to grow online sales. Changes included adding new navigational sliders, new galleries and restructuring the page hierarchy. We also added a new Live Chat system (Snap Engage) alongside a Booking Bug booking system – a combination that is already working absolute wonders to aid visitor engagement and increase sales!

Stage 3: The final stage has involved redesigning the company’s leaflets, sign design and other printed marketing materials. Again we have worked with Florian on this stage to ensure a sleek and professional look.

Customer Testimonial from Devon Carriages

“Complete Marketing Solutions is great! Simon and Sophie are very easy people to get along with and you can talk to them as a human beings, rather than being bombarded with complex jargon. They will always explain anything that I don’t understand in a way that is clear and described in plain English – I often get a bit puzzled with web-language! They are great people to work with.”

– Katrina, Devon Carriages

Website Optimisation for South Devon Florist

 

laura hingston flowers

 

South Devon Florist, Laura Hingston, was referred to us by another client of ours – Ginny from Virginia’s Vintage Hire. After working with us for several years, Ginny felt confident in recommending our services to Laura who was looking to widen the reach of her website and optimise her site so that she could be found on Google.

With a background in art and design, Laura had created a site that had been built with design as a key factor but had forgotten the importance of content and optimisation.

We created quality copy for Laura’s site and added product-specific pages to help her page rank. At the same time, we retained her signature visual style and added a gallery to create a site that looks brilliant and yet also performs well for targeted key word Google searches.

Steve Nuth OLD website - new SEO and website redesign services by Complete Marketing Solutions, North Devon

Replacing Flash Site for Better SEO

 

Steve Nuth before

Like many small business owners looking for a quick and simple website, local photographer Steve Nuth, who creates stunning portraits from his studio in Barnstaple, had fallen victim to what we call the ‘Flash trap’ and created a flash-based website that, although looked good and did fancy things with images, performed poorly and couldn’t be viewed on devices without Flash installed.

Tired of his website troubles, Steve was looking for a company who could build a website that looked great (very important for a photographer!) but also performed well on Google for his keyword searches.

Because it can allow for attractive media content and can be created by those with little web training, flash websites are popular with small business owners who want to build their own websites. Although these sites can be made to look good with not too much effort, flash websites in general perform poorly on Google searches and are not compatible on all computers and mobile devices as they require a plugin to run.

Here at Complete Marketing Solutions, we have the design expertise and SEO knowledge and experience to meet Steve’s needs. We completely rebuilt his site to eliminate the issues that his flash website was causing him and created a new site for him that was visually attractive (including interactive images sliders, galleries and in-page images) but also optimised the content in order for Google to find his site easily.
