As It Happens

So Busy Sam Shut the Site Down!

Customer Feedback

I used Andrew Butler at DesignCredo as an SEO service and to look over my website. I already had a DIY package website which was ok but cluttered and on about page one thousand when you google searched my business. As a bespoke wedding stationer and a sole trader it was vital that brides could find me when Googling key wedding words.

Andrew completely transformed my website. For a modest fee he helped me to quadruple my business within weeks. He de-cluttered my website, suggested content, set key words and introduced me to social media for business. I followed all his tips to the letter and almost instantly I was found on the front page of Google every time.

In the last 6 months (as I temporarily wind down the business to do an MA) I have ceased all other marketing, such as wedding fairs and magazine articles, and I still consistently get inundated with enquiries. They all say “we found your website, it looks fantastic! Can you do…….?”

I can’t thank Andrew Butler enough. I recommend his service wholeheartedly.

Footnote

Only issue……I’ve shut down (under construction) website as I’m fully booked till August, starting MA in September and couldn’t manage the constant enquiries I was having to turn down! Nice!

For the record Sam was a bit of a start pupil, she asked what else she could do on a limited budget herself and we suggested she set up a free WordPress blog, a Facebook page and a Twitter account. Remembering that she couldn’t be found on Google even by her own name this has to be viewed as a result!

Teo Jakob, Bern 2013

It’s not the first time I have been here but always great to re-visit Teo Jakob in Bern.

They seem happy to have people just mooching round with a camera. I guess I may use these as backgrounds some day, who knows?

Wengen (on holiday)

On holiday in Wengen, Switzerland.

So the story to the photo below. It was the snow show on the nursery slope at Wengen last night, I had the 50 f1.4 on the D7000 so it works out at 80mm or so. This was at f2 ISO 2500 and 1/8. The skier (Ghost Riders) had lights on him.

This is actually pretty much what I was after, sometimes it is good just to see what happens.

New Brochure For Holiday Home Specialists

Exeter’s Design Credo have created a new four page brochure for Hazelwood Holiday Park, South Devon’s holiday home specialists. The brochure replaces the existing eight page document and brings everything into brand.

Last year Hazelwood introduced their new brand and holiday rental brochure designed by us as well as their new WordPress website.

The new simplified brochure makes use of photography supplied by Hazelwood. Text was created for Design Credo by Karen Brookes-Ferrari. The overall approach was to offer a concise quality message that communicated the excellent Hazelwood provision. Print was by Hazelwood’s preferred supplier, Swiftprint of Dawlish and the brochure has bee printed to a very high standard on improved stock with a gloss laminate.
