Helios Web Design worked with Chris from Marketing 4 Contractors to design an updated website for a popular village pub in Hartley Wintney. The Cricketers had an existing website but this was not ranking well in organic search results. It was not responsive and was not reflecting the unique appeal of this establishment. The landlord wanted a fresh new look to the website as well as significantly improved search engine ranking with effective organic search engine optimisation. They also wanted the website to reflect the businesses ethos of providing quality food and drink at reasonable prices.
As The Cricketers is a busy pub with an active social calendar they wanted to be able to easily update the website content with upcoming events and to highlight news and developments to potential patrons. Helios Web Design integrated an easy to use visual page editor and calendar into the website enabling straight forward WYSIWYG editing to take place. It also has a news blog, social network sharing functionality and effective SEO.
The landlord was involved throughout the design process and was able to monitor the progress of the website design on a testing domain to ensure it was exactly right before the website was deployed. Google Analytics tracking code was included, enabling the client to monitor the effectiveness of the website and the ROI of online marketing campaigns. The website has improve The Cricketers online exposure and has helped improve the businesses footfall.
Helios Web Design will actively manage this site ensuring that the website, plugins and security measures are always up to date and will provide technical support and minor updates to content as and when required. The total time of the website build from initial development to live deployment was two weeks. The total cost of this website is private at the request of the business involved. Ongoing technical support, in year 2 and subsequent years will be available at a market beating rate.
