New, mobile-friendly website for a Sydney building company.
PremBuild Group Pty Ltd, a Northern Beaches building company, already had a website but it had been developed many years ago and was very outdated. The original website was not mobile friendly and it hadn’t been updated for years. The content and photos were out of date and didn’t adequately represent the calibre of work undertaken. Unfortunately, it hadn’t been optimised at all for search engine ranking so wasn’t attracting any business or customer enquiries.
This project didn’t just include new website design but also extensive search engine optimisation and keyword research with the goal of attracting customer enquiries and expanding into new areas. To this end, I undertook the following:
- Creating a contemporary, mobile-friendly website design that represented their business and appealed to the customers they want to attract.
- WordPress website development with built-in content management functionality so the client can make changes themselves.
- Extensive keyword research and a comprehensive SEO strategy.
- Portfolio and photo gallery so the client can showcase their remedial building projects.
When I developed this new website, the brief included organic search engine optimisation to ensure the client achieved a top Google ranking. After all, what’s the point having a beautiful website if potential customers can’t find it?
Organic search engine optimisation
It’s important to point out that search engine optimisation (or SEO as it is commonly referred) is not easy and that’s why many website developers don’t do it. I have been optimising websites for 15+ years and it is a highly complex process that requires ongoing commitment to stay up to date with Google’s ever-changing requirements.
For every website I optimise I undertake extensive keyword research, develop an extensive SEO strategy, curate the required content, research the client’s competitors and customer behaviour, plus many other factors. All this culminates into an SEO strategy that will gain the attention of Google (for all the right keywords), a top search engine ranking and, most importantly, click-throughs to the client’s website.
Next, once client’s land on the website it is then paramount that there are calls-to-action prompting the client to contact / buy / engage.
Local search marketing and a Google Map listing
Most of us no longer want to be restricted to our desktop computers when we need to undertake menial daily tasks, instead wanting to access the internet from anywhere and at any time.
Whether it’s making a dentist appointment, finding a local restaurant or tradesperson, or finding someone to fix your computer quickly, we want to do it wherever we are and when the need arises. The penetration of mobile phones, voice-activated search, smart watches and smart speakers (Amazon Alexa, Google Home, etc), offer us greater convenience. And that’s why it’s more important than ever that your business is listed in all the right places – particularly if you’re a local business trying to attract local customers.
Local search marketing formed an integral part of my SEO strategy as many of their customers, including homeowners, strata agents and building managers, will live and work locally (see screen shot above).
