The Holistic Retreat is a holistic therapy and beauty centre based between Colchester and Sudbury in Suffolk. The business’ owner, Catrina Broadway, decided to create a website with bOnline in order to attract visitors from beyond the small village where The Holistic Retreat is based.
Catrina used bOnline’s easy DIY website builder to create The Holistic Retreat’s website. When the site was ready to go live on the web, Catrina upgraded to bOnline’s Managed SEO package to ensure it was optimised for search engine results.
Catrina said: “I chose bOnline because they offered an easy solution to creating a website which offered a wide variety of services that many other companies do not offer – this makes life so much easier when you are starting a new business.”
The Holistic Retreat now has a professional-looking website. Catrina said: “People remark how easy it is to find information on the site and how professional it looks.”
The Holistic Retreat website is now ranking number one on Google search results for ‘holistic therapy in Colchester’ and ‘holistic therapy in Sudbury’. Catrina said: “My Google search has jumped from not being found in Google within the first month to now having 50 – 70% of my hits on the website coming from Google just in 6 months.”
Thanks to the website, The Holistic Retreat now gets business from further afield. Catrina said: “My business is located in a small village and if it were not for people finding my website via Google I would not have generated as much business as I have.”
