Hello Commercial Door Supplies

This month, we highlight a great example of how we turn around a customer’s online digital marketing. Originally, Commercial Door Supplies were spending north of £500 a month after spending nearly £5,000 on a website too. The site was terrible and the mobile site was very hard to navigate and manage.

Matt Sibley Sales Director of CDS tasked us to build a new site and to integrate a new quote system where customers can add their door dimensions and then get a quote for that exact size. The site proudly on our Ultimate Plan so they know they have us onboard for their digital marketing, but also they can update the website anytime and have unlimited pages and images.

We gave the website an overhaul worthy of a company that is one of the biggest commercial door suppliers in the UK and we now manage all their online strategy from emails, marketing and ongoing support.

CDS supply and fit aluminium doors, shopfronts, curtain walling and work with many big names, so it made sense for them to spend less – get more – and look more appealing online.

Hello Foster & Co!

It’s that time to shed the spotlight on another client this month and this one is a bit special. Foster & Co have been a client with us for well over 2 years and have 5 sites targeting different services within the construction business in North London and Hertfordshire.

Foster & Co originally had the one site for their construction arm but was struggling against competition from many other competitors for different areas of the business. Foster and Co specialise in Loft Conversions, Bi Fold Doors, Artificial Grass, Home Extensions and other domestic home construction work.

We decided to build 4 sites for each area of the business under the umbrella of the one Foster and Co Group website and then push the business for their locations. Serving North London, Barnet, Finchley and Hertfordshire, these are competitive terms for builders but we are working ongoing to provide them with a full marketing solution along with tech support for emails and a full disaster recovery plan for their sites and software.

Why not check out Foster and Co Lofts for an example site that targets North London and local areas in and around Finchley and Barnet

If you are in the market for some home improvements in the North London area then you’re in great hands!
