New Website For The Lost Words Dorset
We've been enthusiastic supporters of #TheLostWords project to present all Dorset primary and first schools with copies of The Lost Words, and now we have built a completely new website for the project.
Published on: 5th March 2009
Last month we completed a website re-design for London-based "Seasons Florists." We helped to transform their existing site design into a beautiful, standards-compliant showcase for the fabulous floral arrangements and bouquets that they provide. They're now all set for selling Mother's Day flowers on their brand new website.
The site was previously hosted with a do-it-yourself site design package and while the site looked OK, it wasn't easy to maintain and wasn't optimised very effectively for search engines to index, nor was it particularly easy to navigate. As part of the DIY system there was also a lot of hidden code that was slowing down the site's performance.
We waved our magic wand over the site, building on the best bits of the design, speeding up its performance and loading times, improving its SEO levels and enhancing the site's usability. We also moved the hosting and set up e-commerce facilities using PayPal.
You can see the transformation of the site in the picture above.
The site was ready in time for Valentine's Day and the first sale was made on the new site within hours of it going live. The next event on the florists' calendar is of course Mother's Day on 22nd March this year. We've created a special page to showcase Seasons Florists' unique arrangements and bouquets for this special day.
Seasons sends flowers all over the UK and also can provide flowers for weddings, funerals and corporate contracts. Do get in touch with them for your Mother's Day flowers this year.
We're delighted to introduce our two new team members who are joining Alacrify this month. Lesley Smith is Alacrify's new Personal Assistant, and Lynne Pattison joins as a Project Assistant.
Green Union has been a client of Alacrify for many years now and this website was a kind of third generation build. We built the original website a few years back and it’s had some updates made to it over the years but this time the new owner wanted to put her own stamp on things and create something fresh and new.
