Improving Underperforming Websites - Getting More For Your Money

The most frequent comment we hear from prospective clients is that they are disappointed with the way that their current website is performing.

Often they've had a presence on the internet for several years, but have yet to really see the benefit.

Often their website is only found when you add the business name to a search phrase, which shows just how bad things have become - how can you put yourself in front of new clients who haven't heard of you when you can only be found when someone types in your business name? It's a "Catch 22".

Often they've picked up mixed messages and expectations about what their website can and can't do for their business.

Improving Website Performance

This is usually the starting point for a much bigger discussion in which they start to explain what they'd hoped to get out of being online. We then open this up to find out what their business is all about and what their wider goals are.

Improving Business Website Performance

Even if this was done when the site was originally launched, there have usually been some changes in the business since then and of course there have been LOADS of changes to the web.

Through the discussions we then offer an insight into what can be done with websites at the moment, explaining what a business can expect from being on the web, how web marketing works, how websites need to plug into the main drivers and goals of the business, and really build a clear brief for the business' reasons for being on the web.

Free Advice About Marketing Your Business On The Web

Usually we give lots of this website development advice for free. Frequently we are then given the chance to work with the client to put the ideas into practice. Free advice about web marketing is not just part of our own marketing agenda, it's part of our values.

We like working with businesses and supporting them and seeing them flourish online. If we're able to build or rebuild their business website as part of the process then that is especially satisfying.

If you'd like to talk about how your website is performing and have a chat about how it might be improved then do give us a call on 01300 320076 or email


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.
