This week I’ve helped put the new website live for Trattoria Rustica, a much loved Italian restaurant here in Norwich.
The owners were keen to refresh the design of the website while also retaining the effective restaurant booking functionality.
Minor improvements have also been put in place to help with how customers interact with the website. Observations over the years from the usage of the old website have helped put in place information and usability improvements for the new website.
A new cafe & shop opens next weekend in Barnham Broom and I’ve worked with them to get their website live to help promote the business before they open.
Julie & Nick already had a good plan of what they were after, so working with that brief in place meant the website could be built within days and not weeks. Free advice was also given to get the most out of services such as TripAdvisor and Google My Business , essential services for their business.
The website simply promotes what they offer:
I’ve always recommended using some form of spam protection on website contact forms but it’s now recommended, more than ever, to use Google’s free reCAPTCHA service.
This week alone I’ve had three separate clients contact me to say that they’ve been receiving a relentless amount of spam via their contact form. It may be that some spam bots are being more aggressive to repeatedly submit contact forms on the same website.
Dr Nathan Holt has over 25 years experience as a medical laser specialist and needed a website to launch his new laser clinic in Cambridge.
We put a plan in place to create pages for each available treatment, to help explain and inform customers of the many procedures the clinic offers. Each specific treatment page then has a selection of detailed information pages to help educate the client on the treatment they require. The combination of treatments and supporting information lead to the creation of over 60 pages.
To help engage and inform potential clients, we’ve also added short one minute YouTube videos with Dr Nathan Holt himself giving an overview of the treatments and processes involved.
The new website for Gali the Indian restaurant is now live.
The owners of Gali wanted their website and hosting to be managed in one place, locally in Norwich. On moving the hosting, the website is secure (served over HTTPS), more responsive and their email and web hosting Iis supported locally if they have any issues.
The website was rebuilt from scratch, leaning on the positive elements from the old website but further improving the site from a visual, content and performance point of view. A new live restaurant booking service from Quandoo was also integrated as an alternative to Bookatable & ResDiary, from a features and pricing point of view.
