Celebrate with us and save – We are Moving

We are excited to be moving our Shrewsbury Operation to new, larger offices in on 9th October 2017. These offices at Flexspace, Battlefield Enterprise Park will give us more room to grow and also offer much better on site training facilities. As you can see from the photo, we are still getting things ready for the move. New carpet tiles to go down and desking to go in. We will of course still be keeping our Aberystwyth Office.

To celebrate, we are slashing our Digital Marketing training course prices and also running 4 free ones! Courses that we often sell for £45 (normally £60) are now just £20. Places are limited.

5 Web Developer Warning Signs for Businesses

Website Developers are everywhere these days. The choice can be bewildering for a business looking to get a website designed.

Some businesses will choose to build a site themselves, which has pros and cons – see our guide to deciding whether to use a Web Developer or DIY.

We always recommend businesses create a simple 1-2 page Web Design brief, even if they are going to design it themselves. Get quotes, tell the developer what you like and don’t like and get the Website that you need.

Over the years we have seen many rogue Web Developers come and go, and we are pretty good at spotting them. So, here are 5 warning signs to look for… Continue reading “5 Web Developer Warning Signs for Businesses” »

Most Web Developers don’t understand Digital Marketing

Fortunately for us, there are a lot of Web Developers out there who don’t really have a clue about digital marketing. They are either Website Farmers who just churn out average Websites or they are Lazy Developers who havent thought about what the final purpose of the Website is and how it needs to bring business to the customer.

Over the last 6 months I have been delivered more than 50 workshops for Business Wales on Digital Marketing and Social Media. During these sessions, as part of the course I pull up delegate Websites to look for improvements. In 90% of cases a) the Website wasn’t working for the business and b) the developer had developed a site that was pretty ineffective at generating business. They may even look pretty with huge pictures but are woeful at actually generating business.

On our Total Digital Marketing Scheme – where we have a comprehensive approach to working closely with clients on a strategy that brings results, almost all of the clients we have had had sites designed by other Web Developers. They have a Website created, it doesn’t work, and come to us to make it sing and get business in.

Our Total Digital Marketing Solution enables businesses to partner with us to maximise the benefits of digital marketing in their business. Essentially, InSynch becomes your digital marketing department!

People don’t go on Facebook to buy your products and services!

Think about it… Why are people on Facebook?

People go on Facebook to be entertained by watching videos of cats jumping away from cucumbers (If you haven’t seen it, I have put a link at the bottom of this article).

People go on Facebook to put selfies and other photos on there and see how many likes they get, and worry why it was less than last time.

People go on Facebook to say things like “Oh, what a bad day this has been”, in order to get the inevitable response “what’s wrong hun?”.

People go on Facebook to peer into the lives of their friends, anonymously….

I know I am being a little harsh on Facebook users and perhaps belittling the benefit that people can get from it. I am just trying to make a point. However, the fact still remains, and businesses need to realise it…..

People don’t go on Facebook to buy your products and services

So, what should businesses be doing on Facebook? Continue reading “People don’t go on Facebook to buy your products and services!” »
