A number of both our existing and new clients have made the change to online selling recently, to keep up with buyer habits in the current climate. Online spending has increased dramatically over the last year, and small businesses are having to adapt quickly. Our Tech Lead, Fortuna, has been busy working on new websites and website refreshes to help small businesses keep up with the modern world. Keep reading to take a closer look at what she’s been up to.
Bollington based PH Labels is a major supplier of packaging products, that has been around since 1997. They offer both plain and printed solutions, to cover a wide range of industries such as dairy, retail, and of course, labels. They also now have a studio service, providing professional artwork creation and development.
PH Labels came to us looking to upgrade their static web page to a new, fully functional e-commerce website that would allow them to take orders online, as well as giving information about their bespoke services.
Working closely with the client, Fortuna designed a modern site that’s fully responsive and mobile-friendly, whilst in line with their brand. This was a great project to work on and we’re so glad that the client is happy with their new up-to-date website. Thank you for the lovely Google review!
Jenifer Lord is an intuitive life coach with over ten years of experience in a variety of practices including cognitive behavioural therapy, hypnotherapy and mindfulness. Her empathetic approach to coaching focuses on well-being and mindset change, helping her clients to reduce stress, find confidence and more.
Jenifer came to Skyzack for a modern website refresh that really works for her and her clients. Fortuna worked closely with the client to design a site that prioritised the right information making it clear to read, and added interactive elements such as a call-to-action button on the home page.
This was another great website to work on and the client was very happy with the final result. A big thank you for trusting us to help bring your business into 2021!
Do you need a website?
Whether through websites or social media, an online presence is so important, especially as face-to-face interactions are limited. Here at Skyzack, we will always prioritise what will work best for you and your business. We want to create something that is more than just a reference point and that acts as a channel that works for your business. We want to get to know your business from the inside and will discuss what you really need to succeed in 2021. If you’re starting from scratch with a brand-new venture, in need of an update or just looking for advice, we can help. If you’d like to know more, please feel free to get in touch for a chat.
Welcome to the November 2020 edition of the Skyzack newsletter. Here you’ll find the Skyzack team’s latest adventures and projects, as well as updates from our clients and friends.
Supporting small this Christmas:
We can’t believe it’s nearly December! This year has gone by so fast, yet so slowly. We’re all yearning for some festivities and can’t wait to put up our trees with a glass of mulled wine, but things will be a little different this year.
Skyzack is passionate about supporting small businesses, pandemic or not, and know that Christmas is one of the most important times of the year for many. This in mind, we’ve put together some simple Christmas marketing tips to try to make things a little easier, along with information on how you can support your favourite Macclesfield businesses during lockdown and beyond.
Skyzack Spotlight: Arvika
This month, our Skyzack Spotlight is on a recently completed project for well-known Macclesfield based interiors company, Arvika. They combine their international experience and expertise with that of their worldwide contacts to bring luxury brands and unique pieces to discerning homes.
Fortuna worked closely with the owner to develop a new, e-commerce friendly website where they could begin selling online. Alongside, we provided training and ensured the site was user friendly to allow the Arvika team to make changes with ease. We thoroughly enjoy working with Arvika and wish them all the best with the new website.
