O2C Newsletter – May 2013
Firstly I want to thank those of you who have dragged the sun out – kicking and screaming (having asked for it in my last update). Much obliged!
We’ve been feeling full of spring in the last few weeks, with lots of work and play on the cards… dare I mention the recent Hadouken incident? I’ve definitely got the power!
UPDATE FROM THE WORLD OF ONE2CREATE…
Shortlisted for Online Innovation Award
We’re so pleased to announce that we’ve been shortlisted for an award!
Sponsored by Moxhams, this Winchester BID / Hampshire Chamber of Commerce award celebrates businesses that take their on-line systems to a new level by utilising the latest and most awesome parts of the web to make business better.
I can safely say that we live and breathe online solutions, not just for clients but our ourselves, too. We can’t wait for the dinner in June (as ever I’m sure it will be messy) and ridiculously want to win (enough said??)!
Are you up for any awards? We’d love to hear about it!
Our wall of fame
We took it upon ourselves to have a minor re-decorate a few weeks back to spruce up the place and we are very pleased with the results (if we do say so ourselves)!
Courtesy of a “well-known auction website”, we got our hands on some rather lovely picture frames which ended up receiving One2create star treatment.
Filled with lots pics of our team (meeting Murray Walker at the HELP Appeal bash is a personal favourite), a bunch of testimonials from happy campers and a few illustrations along the way – its gone down a storm! We’ll be updating it as we go as new projects are finalised and launched.
Feel free to have a look… or why not do one better – pop in and see for yourself! You may even make an appearance in the future!
ALL HANDS ON DECK
It has been a fab month with a bunch of accomplishments and new projects along the way… have a gander to see what we’ve been up to:
Fantastic Mr.Choc E-commerce Website
What a corker! We’ve loved working on this project and are a little sad to see it go, now its been launched! We created the name, entire brand identity and e-commerce website from scratch, trained them on social media marketing (which I have to say they are rocking at!) and enjoyed every second.
We also made sure their scrummy products were found on the web by using the latest search engine optimisation!
Charmol Interiors Web Design
Following a cool web design project we can announce that their brand-spanking-new website is now live! We had a lot of fun working with the guys at Charmol Interiors as they are a great bunch. Have a gander at their new interiors site, there’s some beautiful work showcased there!
Coaching Visions Web Video Shoot
Filmed at our offices, all you could hear was laughter from upstairs as the video team (AKA David and Laura) worked with Coaching Visions for their web video. I’d love to see the outtakes! The video has been a great success and we look forward to seeing it in action.
Wheatsheaf Trust Website
In the final stages of client testing, the site is due to go live imminently! It’s far removed from the original site and has had very high praise indeed! Having conducted lots of workshops at their offices before we did the design, we made sure that everyone had a say in the new site and it has proved invaluable. We’ll announce the launch on social media so please keep your eyes peeled!
Revitalise Gardens Website
Ohh it’s so close we can smell it… (if it did smell, it would smell of beautiful roses!). Having gratefully received doughnuts as a little thank you from the client (even though later it was announced that they had “only licked one”), we’re now in the throws of building the site. It’s a fab looking brand and we look forward to sharing it with you.
Axis Fire & Security Marketing and Website re-vamp
This project is going from strength to strength! We’ve been commissioned to re-design their website and supporting marketing materials. The initial designs have had fantastic feedback and we are now in the final throws of the design phase. Watch this space!
Anya Bridal Couture – Fantastic SEO results
Having launched the website in February, we were ecstatic to report that the first full month of search engine optimisation results showed a massive 70% increase in web traffic! We also saw the Anya Bridal website appear number 1 in Google and 11 other search engines) for 7 keywords!
Phil Curl Accountancy Website
We welcome the firm into the One2create fold and will be producing a fantastic new website for them. We’ll also be optimising the site for Search Engine Optimisation (as we do for all of our websites) and driving traffic to the site with ongoing SEO Management once it is live.
Marla Custom Blinds Marketing Concepts
Hot off the press! We’ve just been commissioned to provide a marketing concept for Marla Custom Blinds, including design and strap-line suggestions. This is a nice project for us to get our teeth into and we can’t wait to start!
Corporate PD Social Media Training
We were asked to provide 1:1 social media training on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook by our existing client Corporate PD (to support the soon-to-be new website). With lots of hints and tips, specific for their own business and target audience, we’re so quick that it has been and gone already!
12 College Place
Having had a fantastic kick-off meeting with the team last week, we’ve got lots to think about and even more to do! We look forward to working with them on their new web design, including branding, copywriting and SEO Management to boot.
So…without further ado, I bid you farewell for now. If you are interested to find out more on any of our projects please do give us a shout! Our doors are always open if you fancy a quick chat on anything marketing / creative / web design (or anything else for that matter).
Wishing you all a very happy May from the team at One2create.
