SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)
With more websites online than ever it is essential that you use effective Search Engine Optimisation, or SEO, to reach the first pages of google and other search engines. Most users only look at the first few search results, so SEO is one of the best web marketing tools out there, hence why it is sometimes known as Search Engine Marketing or SEM, and can drive more potential clients to your site. It is little use having a fantastic website if no-one can find it! Think of it as having prime retail space in a busy high street, rather than a little shop hidden down an alley. Website Optimisation Tools We use ‘natural’ or ‘organic’ SEO, as well as paid PPC adverts, so your site will reach high listings on its own merit. This involves adjusting the web pages ‘source code’ and sitemap, the invisible skeleton of the website that search engines read, optimizing the visible text to include regularly searched terms, or keywords (i.e. your business type and location) and increasing your company’s overall web presence by adding directory listings and other ‘backlinks’. We also offer an analytics service so you can monitor how your traffic increases as you improve your search rankings. We are SEO specialists in local SEO, and can help your website rank in Chepstow, Monmouthshire, Newport, Cardiff, Gloucester and Bristol If you need to climb the google rankings then get in touch to discuss our SEO packages.

Once we have designed the visuals for the shop, we will hand over log-in details for the back end system. This will allow you to add and manage products and most website content. We will hold training at a venue of your choice (e.g. our office, your office) to show you the basics of the system, and then offer phone and email support for 3 months after your site has gone live, just to tackle any teething problems. The back end system is also tested across various devices and all main internet browsers, so however you use the web you should have no trouble accessing the system. The product options built into CactuShop are extensive. The system allows customers to choose between multiple currency options, letting the built-in real-time exchange rate take care of everything automatically. Products are automatically fed to Google, meaning that they appear in searches. The back end system also allows you to create bulk discounts for certain items, or customers groups who get different prices (i.e. trade clients who receive wholesale discounts). There is also an easy way to create special offers and promotions whenever you like – perfect for slow times of year when customers need that extra incentive. When it comes to shipping you have the option to allow real-time UPS shipping quotes to customers, meaning that you don’t have to worry about changing shipping costs.

Creating Media have introduced a blended design & marketing service to give our customers, new and existing, the opportunity to take advantage of a selection of our creative ideas and wide range of services for a manageable regular monthly fee.

All of this can be designed based around your business aims, and also flexed from month-to-month as your business needs dictate – for example one month you may require a larger graphic design project, or you may be promoting an exciting development within your business (e.g. product launch or event) and need to have a more intensive month using the blend that suits.
