New Website With An Impact!

What’s more important than having a website? A well designed and well built website! Which is exactly what we did when we recently undertook the project of designing and building a new website for Janet Randle Recruitment.

Janet has experience of nearly 30 years working in executive support and from this she has built a company that delivers first class PA’s and Executive Assistants.

Having never had never had a website designed or built before, she wanted her big break to make an impact – which is exactly what we did! Our Design team worked along side Janet throughout ensuring all key features and elements were the exact way she envisioned.


The new website includes:

– Content Management System
– Easy Navigation
– User Friendly
– Mobile/Tablet Responsive
– Upload CV Area
– Video

Janet herself is very pleased with her website and has had great feedback!

Case Study – MRN


It’s estimated over 100 billion emails are sent and received each day, and for businesses it can be one of the most cost effective ways of engaging and captivating the required audience. Whether it’s to inform current clients of a new product launch or to pitch services to new potential customers, email marketing can be beneficial to any business.

We’ve been working with Medical Research Network (MRN) for over 6 years now covering a wide range of services including website design and build, a fantastic array of design items for both web and print, search engine optimisation and bi weekly email marketing.

The MRN specialises in the conduct of clinical trial visits in the patient’s home and supporting clinical trial sites with nursing resources – so not quite your average product based email! As the majority of campaigns we send carry quite a serious tone and are particularly niche subjects, including ‘How Clinical Trials Affect Parents’ and ‘Home Healthcare – The evolving concept of healthcare provision’, it’s important to maintain this informative tone but also encourage potential leads.

Over time we have worked with the MRN team to create an email marketing style that is informative AND engaging for their readers.


Our specially designed email marketing packages contain creative and captivating designs, thoughtful layout and build as well as list management, spam testing, delivery and online reviewing of sent campaigns.

Our team works with you to ensure you have a completely unique and professionally designed responsive eshot that can reach as many of your contacts as possible, on mobiles, pads and PCs.

Top Tips Guide – Instagram


Most people know by now that social media networks have a massive part to play in the online presence of any business. They are a great way to promote products or services and engage an audience for free, so we have compiled a Top Tip Guide for social media to help you and your business.

This month it’s Instagram!

  • Promote with a picture! Instagram is a great way to allow users to browse through your products, it’s almost like online shopping. If you are going to post pictures of items ensure it’s clear to the user which product you are promoting at that time. Not too much clutter, plain backgrounds and good lighting are key!
  • Behind the scenes. People love a good nose, so whether it’s your products being shot for a catalogue, you’re getting ready for a product launch or simply some pictures of your office and employees hard at work – take some snaps of what’s going on.
  • How it’s made. Nowadays people love to know where their products come from, how far it’s travelled and even who it was made by. If you can, try and offer some ‘from start to finish’ pictures that will cure the curiosity of your customers.
  • Filters, filters, filters. Obviously one of the biggest features with Instagram is its filters, but don’t get too carried away! Everyone loves a good filter but remember when promoting a product, clients and customers want to see a realistic portrayal of what you’re selling. So while every now and then it’s fine to use a filter try stick to that get that good old ‘hashtag nofilter’.
  • Hashtagging! This is the best way to get your business noticed. When posting a picture be sure to add a couple of hashtags to summarise what is in the photo. This way when users search for specific things your photo will show up. Don’t get too carried away though, try limit each photo to under 5 hashtags.

Marketing Materials All Under One Roof for Birdsall!


When it comes to marketing materials it’s key to ensure they represent your brand correctly and they reach the right audience. It’s even more important to ensure your items are designed well and your brand is kept consistent – and what better way to ensure all of the above than by having a company who can provide multiple marketing materials and services for your business, all under one roof.

One of our most recent projects highlighting the importance of this included designing a range of branded marketing materials for Birdsall, an air conditioning and cooling services company.

We used our knowledge of branding, design and marketing to design and build a mobile responsive website, design a variation of eye catching exhibition banners, create impactful illustrations and design multiple informative service brochures – whilst ensuring that all brand colours, style and visual aspects were kept consistent.

Top Tip Guide – Business Blogs



Most people know by now that social media networks have a massive part to play in the online presence of any business. They are a great way to promote products or services and engage an audience for free, so we have compiled a Top Tip Guide for social media to help you and your business.

This month it’s Business Blogs!

    • Make sure you have varied content. This could include a mix of the following; helpful hints, links, case studies, research, statistics, how-to posts and even guest posts.
  • Don’t be too pushy with your products. Your blog should not be your main selling point but a place where readers can find posts that could actually be useful and interesting, encouraging them to come back and read more.
  • Answer questions. Take the time every now and then to answer customer questions. This is a great way to show you acknowledge your clients.
  • Keep it up to date. Posting regularly keeps your readers engaged and interested, whether it’s daily or weekly, be sure to keep it consistent.
  • Proof read! This is a simple tip but one of the most important. Get a colleague to take a glance over your draft if you’re not great at spotting your own mistakes.
