Using the content management system and a small selection of previous clients we recommend creating a custom webpage for case studies or customer feedback, this page will be fully managed by the CMS allowing you to update, add and manage existing case studies. News Section Publishing regular news and business related articles will increase your website traffic and over time help you acquire new customers. A recent survey by HubSport confirms this “Blog frequency impacts customer acquisition. 92% of companies who blogged multiple times a day acquired a customer through their blog.” (HubSpot State of Inbound Marketing, 2017 Publishing new content on a regular basis should be part of your ongoing marketing plan we will develop a multi user news platform allowing you to publish news from multiple authors.

Stats, Goals and Results
A website is a great sales tool, so it’s important you understand just how well it’s working for you. For this you need web analytics. Google Analytics can provide you with this data, but trying to decipher hundreds and thousands of stats and find the answers you need is complex for most novice users.
As advanced users of Google Analytics, we will configure your website and analytics account to send a custom, easy to understand report once a month that will give you all the information you need to know, such as:
Visitor traffic stats vs last month’s results
Total emails sent via contact forms
And much more.
Every project is different and that means the approach must be as well.
We help brands connect to their audience through shared values and interests.
We build a team around your needs and provide our clients with direct access.
