Ericaceous Limited is the trading company of Eric Barfield. Eric offers internet marketing consultancy services to SMEs and is also an artist/painter. It may at first seem like a strange mixture but there are many parallels in the discipline of portrait painting and online marketing. Both services require a high degree of observational skills, empathy, creativity and attention to detail.
Eric had a long career in digital marketing which started after graduating in Computing Science from Imperial College in 1987. After working at Logica and then Philips, in 1993 Eric co-founded SilverDisc Limited a digital marketing agency now based in the Midlands. Eric left SilverDisc in 2012 to focus on a few local clients in the South of England and pursue an artistic career which took him into teaching art for a few years. In 2017 Eric started taking on new clients in digital marketing and is now looking to grow Ericaceous into a local marketing consultancy business.

Ericaceous Limited Q&A
What makes a great website?
A great web site should deliver the objectives it was set up to achieve.
From a business owners point of view it's about cost effectiveness. Is the money spent on maintaining the web site and promoting it online justified and how is "success" measured? Objectives vary from clients who want a web site to promote their business and generate sales leads at a specific "cost per lead" to others that just want a "presence" that shows credibility in their industry sector.
From a business customers point of view it's about how well the web site "completes the visitors mission" and if the experience of navigating the web site is intuitive and pleasurable. It's also about how well the web site conveys the brand values of the company being promoted through the visual imagery and text ("voice" ) of the web site.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
What are your specific business objectives and how will you measure the success of your project?
What do you love most about your job?
Meeting new people and helping them to achieve their business objectives through mutual respect and hard work.
What inspired you to start your own business?
