Identifying your brand
Sometimes making the time to stand back from your business and thinking about your brand can seem a bit of a luxury and frankly not as important as pressing on with your financial plan or getting your business cards printed. But it has a key part to play in determining the success of your business.
By working with you we can help you identify what it is your business does and how it does it – this is really important as it is the essence of what makes your business different to your competitors. Businesses are all about people so what you bring to your business really matters. It might be a great sense of fun, reliability, creativity, flexibility or a strong sense of order….any of these things will have a big impact on a business and help define the way it does things – its values or culture.
Getting the ideas down on paper is one thing, but deciding which ones you are going to do and when and whether it is likely to be successful is quite another. We know that planning is not everyone’s cup of tea, but it is important to do (a bit like eating your greens) and it needn’t be a chore, but an exciting step on the way to business success.
Working with our design partner we are able to offer graphic design services including the development of a new logo, refreshing an existing one and applying that logo to business stationery, your website, social media, packaging and other communications material.
Web design and development
We can help you to create a website which will work for you and your customers. We work primarily with carefully selected WordPress themes and plug-ins as we believe this delivers cost-effective sites for small businesses. We can deliver a simple “brochure” website through to a full e-commerce for selling products or services on-line with excellent reporting and back-office features. We also have the capability to develop bespoke solutions such as our custom built booking system for self-catering accommodation.
Not everyone enjoys or has the time to update their website. We are happy to undertake the regular updating of content – such as writing, managing images, loading products, updating news and blogs and compiling newsletters. We can either do this on a daily/ weekly basis or provide support for those annual website jobs which are just too time-consuming to do yourself.
Site hosting and maintenance
Working with Champion Internet Services we can provide site hosting and maintenance solutions for your website so you don’t have to worry about which companies provide the best hosting plans and doing all that site security and maintenance stuff.
Project planning and management
You may have a marketing project which you need help with from writing a detailed brief, choosing a partner to work with or managing the project on your behalf. Talk to us about how we can help.
