Twitter and Twitterfeed

When we launched the new Maiden Newton website we were keen to make use of the social networking provided by Twitter.

A newsy site like this is a perfect match for publishing stories that can then be followed on Twitter. To do this we utilised Twitterfeed to take the 4 RSS news feeds from the site (that cover village news and events diaries) and turn them into Tweets whenever new stories are published.

This was put to good use in the current spell of snowy weather when we published information about the disruption caused to village life. Within a couple of hours of the story being Tweeted, we had  a flurry of new visitors to the site and followers on Twitter.

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.
