Business Blogging and Telling Your Company's Story

We've been doing a lot of work lately to help to explain the purpose of blogging or posting news on our customers' websites.

Many business owners we talk to either think that this is a waste of time or alternatively don't think they'd have anything to say. Through our conversations with them they start to understand the importance of news and blogs to high performing websites and start think differently about this valuable aspect of digital marketing.

We see blogging and news generation having 2 clear purposes:

1. Staying in touch with customers

2. Reaching out to new customers through good SEO

Staying in touch with customers is clearly a good thing. It allows you to continue to develop your working relationship with them and explore new opportunities together as time goes by. They can keep up to date with your business activities and may hear of a new service that you're offering that relates to them that they didn't realise you offered.

Reaching out to new customers is all about getting your website up to speed and performing properly. This means Search Engine Optimisation or SEO. One of the cornerstones of SEO is freshness of content. This has become even more important in recent weeks as Google has changed its algorithms again to give more weight to fresh websites. Blogging or writing news is a simple way to keep your site up to date.

If you would like some help with working out what you could write about on your site, then please get in touch. We also offer copywriting services for our customers where we write and publish news for them on their websites, making sure their sites are well regarded by Google and the other search engines.

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.
