The London Hog Roast Company
The London Hog Roast Company was established in April this year by Steven and Kinga Odendaal, who decided to go it alone after being part of a previous successful business venture. Their aim is to bring authentic, high quality South African style roasting food to the British public by catering for weddings, corporate events, private parties and birthdays.
Having never run the marketing side of a business, both said “This might be our second catering company website but it surely feels like our first one, as neither have dealt with both the marketing and cooking departments at the same time.”
The website is now attracting around 380 views per month
Steven and Kinga needed a professional website which was easy to manage alongside the other tasks of running their business. They took advantage of bOnline’s professional setup package, which provided them with a customised website which is easy to update at any time.
As with all bOnline websites, The London Hog Roast Company website has built-in SEO capabilities, with easy to follow instructions on optimising the website for search engines.
Steven and Kinga have established a strong presence for their new company on social networks, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube all of which are linked to the company’s website.
The site now ranks number one on Google search results for ‘hog roast in London’, and on page one for ‘hog roast’.
The new website has helped to attract customers to The London Hog Roast Company. Steven said “Running for the first year, the amount of business we received as a new company was fantastic!” The website now attracts over 380 views per month. Kinga said “I’m very pleased with bOnline, as they did make the process for us starting a new business website very simple and easy.”
Studio Scribbles is a pottery studio in Newmarket offering ‘paint your own’ pottery sessions and parties, as well as personalised ceramic gifts. Liz Noble took over the company in 2012, and decided to replace the Studio Scribbles website in 2013 as it was difficult and costly to edit, as well as being incompatible with mobile devices.
The website attracts over 500 visitors per month
Liz turned to bOnline to help create a new business website for Studio Scribbles. She chose the Business Plus package, which includes the use of advanced DIY SEO tools.
Liz also chose to add on bOnline’s professional design service. She said: “Working with the designer we developed the design together with the result being exactly what I wanted.”
The new website is easy to edit at any time, and there are no additional charges for making changes. Unlike Studio Scribbles’ previous website, the new site is also compatible with mobile devices.
The website now ranks number one on Google search results for ‘pottery studio in Newmarket’ and ‘personalised gifts in Newmarket’
Studio Scribbles now has a professional-looking website which is simple to manage. The website attracts more than 500 visitors per month, which has increased custom to the pottery studio. Summing up her experience, Liz said “I’m very pleased with the site. bOnline were quick to respond, friendly and there to help when needed.”
The Dental Centre
The Dental Centre is a private dental practice in Colwyn Bay, North Wales, which has been run by the same family for the past five years. They decided they needed a new site as the service they used before only offered a limited amount of designs with little room for customisation.
The website is now attracting 10 visits per day
The owners of The Dental Centre chose to take advantage of bOnline’s design service, from just £295. Our in-house designers worked to give their small business website a professional finish.
After our help with the design, the owners are able to easily edit the site themselves at any time. Website owner Chris said “The service is extremely flexible, it is very easy to make changes, and you can change virtually everything, which is a bonus”.
The website also features built-in SEO tools with a step-by-step guide to optimising the website, as featured in all of our packages.
The Dental Centre is now the top result on Google for ‘dentist in Colwyn Bay’, and on page one for the search term ‘dentist in North Wales’.
The Dental Centre now has a professional business website for a fraction of the cost of independent web designers. Chris said the professional design package is “extremely good value for money. We were quoted £4000 for virtually the same service!!” Thanks to their search engine optimisation efforts they are attracting more customers, with an average of 10 visitors to the website each day.
Aroma is a family-run takeaway founded in 2002 in New Malden. The business’ success has recently led to the opening of a second branch in Kingston upon Thames, and Aroma’s owners decided they needed a website in order to reach out to more customers as well as keeping their current customers informed with the company’s news.
The website now attracts 950 visits per month
Aroma’s owners used bOnline’s easy tools to create a DIY website for the restaurants.
The website was based upon one of bOnline’s many restaurant designs and customised to match the business and make it really unique. Like all bOnline websites, the Aroma site includes built-in SEO capabilities for no additional cost.
