Contacting Clients

At the moment we are working through a long list of new clients that we have just taken on from CNL24. Now we are registrars for both .uk and .com/.net domain names and have taken on the hosting of CNL24's former clients we are now in the process of getting in touch with each of them to get to know them all a bit better and check that all the services we're offering are working OK for them.

This is a really interesting process. It's fascinating hearing about all these companies and getting to know their owners a little better. We're also making sure that we're giving them good value for money for the services that they want, whether that's email only, full web hosting or just domain name registration.

I really enjoy making these calls. Occasionally it's not a good time for people to talk when I ring, but often we end up chatting for a quarter or half an hour. Sometimes in the course of the call we may discuss our other services and we'll talk about whether we can help with any of their website design needs. Sometimes they'd like help with setting up new email accounts. Sometimes they'd like to look at new web projects altogether. This lucky dip quality to the calls makes them very exciting and interesting.

Occasionally it is a chance for the customers act on ideas that they've had in mind for a long time but haven't got round to sorting out. One example is a customer who has multiple domain names, most of which are handled by another registrar. When I called they asked if we could transfer the remaining couple of domain names to the registrar who managed the majority of their domains so that it would be easier and more convenient to administer them all together. That was no trouble at all and we were able to sort it all out immediately, which was really pleasing for the client. It also gave me a vicarious satisfaction knowing that they'd been able to tie up some loose ends that had been niggling away for some time.

Part of this process has led to specific new pieces of work and I'll say more about these as they come to fruition in the coming weeks. It's been an interesting and exciting time.

 

New Website For Osmington Village Hall

We’re pleased to announce that we have just launched a NEW website for Osmington Village Hall. Osmington Village Hall came to us needing a brand new website as the old one had been taken offline. We built the website from the ground up taking a fresh new approach alongside Osmington Village Hall.

Relaunch Of Weymouth And Portland Info Website

We’re excited to announce that we have relaunched the Weymouth and Portland Information website. The website is an internal project of ours and one that’s needed attention for a while. The main aim of the redesign was to make the website responsive and easier for users to navigate around.

New Website For R-em Therapies

We have just launched a new website for Emma at R-EM Therapies. R-EM Therapies is a new client of Alacrify’s that we’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with. R-EM came to us needing a new website as the old site was starting to show its age. The old site also wasn’t responsive and was also unsecure which negatively impacted the site's search engine rankings as well as being hard for users to access on their mobiles and tablets.

New Website For Ecs Special Projects

We have just launched a new website for ECS Special Projects. This is another website of ours that we originally built many years ago. The old site stood the test of time and still performed very well in Google searches, but the time had come for the look and feel to be updated in line with more contemporary design approaches.
