Working in a Winter Wonderland

Our hens were very reluctant to step out into their snow-covered run this morning and their water drinker was a solid block of ice. Their trepidation at stepping out into the snow is something I can sympathise with as I'm due to be making several visits to some of our clients in the next couple of days. The latest trip will be to discuss our 6th Bed and Breakfast website commission for another gorgeous Dorset B&B. This comes hot on the heels of a site for a second holiday cottage in Scotland that we've been commissioned to develop.

It's interesting how these B&B sites have developed as a theme in our business. Word of mouth and recommendation have been the predominant source of these jobs, and it looks like we might be beginning to develop a new market in Floristry websites with our first site being launched in time for Valentine's Day, again through personal recommendation. I'll write more on this when it's completed.

We never take these personal recommendations for granted and are always delighted when we get this type of referral. Not only are they usually accommpanied by a friendly introduction, but they're often a bit further down the line in knowing what they want from their site before they talk to us. Sometimes it (briefly) makes me wonder whether it is worth us running a website for our own business, or whether we should just rely on these personal recommendations, but I know that being online is essential in our line of work. I just hope that our site gives the same friendly and approachable welcome that we get when we're introduced and recommended by our current clients and business colleagues. If you've time - perhaps you'd let me know?


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.
