I really enjoy applying cutting-edge web development techniques and technologies to help local businesses to compete with national (and often) global competitors. As reported in my recent article The Increasing Importance of Website Speed and Simplicity, the introduction of website speed as a key factor in Google’s search engine ranking algorithm in 2021 brings major opportunities and threats for local businesses.
Building my portfolio of commercial websites for 2021, I am delighted to be working with Paul Braybrooke to develop his online presence. We plan to double annual turnover within the next two years. As well as developing Paul’s presence in the oil heating market (and encouraging households to upgrade to ultra-efficient boilers with low emissions), we hope to jointly develop a presence in green technologies across Cambridgeshire.
As the very first part of a new long-term revenue-sharing agreement with Paul, I am providing a new ultrafast website – to replace an outdated site with Yell. This will be developed over time.
Achievement of very high scores in Google’s PageSpeed Insights tool has required extreme optimisation of many different design and technology aspects.
In addition, I am developing and managing Google Ads campaigns. For businesses, reliance on Google’s organic listings can be risky and Google Ads potentially provide an effective means to get to the top of Google search listings quickly. However, Google Ads can be very expensive and ineffective if not developed and managed properly or if a long-term approach is not adopted. The revenue sharing agreement with Paul provides the opportunity and time to truly optimise Ad campaigns to achieve success.
