Lake Cathie Progress Association

The Lake Cathie Progress Association needed a new website. Their old website was created over 10 years ago and the new mobile friendly and up-to-date site needed to reflect the growing community’s marketing efforts and business co-ordination that is helping to attract and connect so many people to and within the area.

We worked with the Progress Association’s Committee to apply for a government grant to build the new website. Funding was secured and we were able to get straight to work. The website leverages the areas distinct local beauty and Mediterranean climate and is now a true reflection of the town, people and plans of Lake Cathie – past, present and, most importantly, future!

The LCPA are thrilled with the end result and are delighted with the positive feedback of their investment.

 

PROGRESSIVE TOOLS MADE FOR ONGOING OWNERSHIP OVER CONTENT

Video lessons were created and recorded by Ben to demonstrate the ease of editing and changing information within the website so that current and future committee members will have the resources and know-how to make changes themselves. Something that is often an essential need with any community organisation or group site. These videos were gratefully welcomed for the flexibility of what the Association is all about – progress!

Recently Ben Waters of Ben & Sam upgraded the Lake Cathie Progress Association (LCPA) website www.lakecathiepa.com.

Ben’s professional and outstanding service surpasses any service that we have encountered over the years. Needless to say we are extremely happy with the website which has increased our “traffic” by 100% in a short period of time and no doubt visitors to the site will continue to grow for the benefit of the Lake Cathie community and businesses including the many “Links” within the website.

Ben & Sam were also Guest Speakers at the LCPA Inaugural Business Networking Dinner held in October 2018 imparting their knowledge on best business practices. The business people who attended the successful event provided very positive feedback on the very informative and educational presentation.

If you are looking to build your business or community organisations we can highly recommend Ben & Sam.

Concrete Pumping Website Design

Easycrete Concrete Pumping

WE CREATED AN EASY TO USE WEBSITE

This project involved the creation of a brand new site for an established business in a competitive market. The website serves three main locations on the east coast of Australia and therefore had to rank in Google for multiple locations.

 

WEBSITE BUILT FOR THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY

The website needed to appeal to the construction industry user and be simple and easy to use but at the same time descriptive and content rich.

 

CUSTOM DESIGNED FROM THE GROUND UP

The website provides multiple ways for each type of user or browser to navigate and retrieve the information they require, creating a spider web effect where most information is only one or two clicks from any location. Essential to this audience.

 

THE SITE CAN EASILY BE SKIM READ

The site can be easily skim read, perfect for busy viewers, as well as providing in-depth information, images and FAQ’s that then help them move through to action. This allows the website to do the heavy lifting and cuts down on the same questions being asked over and over again on the phone by multiple potential customers. The Easycrete team can now focus on closing deals and pumping concrete.

 

RANKING IN GOOGLE FOR MULTIPLE LOCATIONS

The unique situation of three locations for this business meant that we needed to ensure that each location was found individually and was able to rank and compete as its own against established businesses in each area. This was achieved onsite with clear and separate landing pages with contextualized information and contact details optimised for Google search.

 

GOOGLE MY BUSINESS & BING BUSINESS LISTINGS

Google My Business and Bing Business Listings were then created for each location, along with local business citations in multiple online directories. The clear and complete details in each of these strategies mean that the website is favoured in the eyes of Google.

LOOKING FOR A WEBSITE THAT SPEAKS TO YOUR AUDIENCE?

We build websites that not only work for you, but also look good to your target market and get found by them first on Google. Move on from being tied up on the phone to service buyers who are ready to get the job started  – contact us to see if we’re a good match

Graft A Lash

Graft A Lash

Graft A Lash

Graft A Lash is an Eyelash Extension Wholesaler on the Gold Coast of Australia that needed a dramatic overhaul of their existing and popular website.  A cleaner look and more user-friendly flow was required as well as the addition of a blog and the ability for the Graft A Lash team to update products in the shop on a regular basis. 

 

CLEAN AND MODERN REBRANDING

We worked with the client to rebrand the entire business under their new ownership. A sleek and streamlined logo and monochrome colour scheme speaks to the modern beauty community and leveled up the luxe factor for trust and quality. 
This commanding new image was not only worked throughout the website, but also represented in their socials, and even all new product labeling. 

 

WEBSITE REBUILD AND ECOMMERCE MIGRATION

The previous website had been in operation since the late 90’s and had hence built up a strong customer database that needed to be nurtured and migrated into the new WooCommerce Shopping environment. Google recognised the site, but it was quickly losing traction due to its glaring lack of essential updates.

We took these requirements and built another system concurrently so as to avoid any downtime or disruption to the business. The database of over 5000 customers was preserved and are now regularly served value through the use of a strong content marketing strategies which include Email, Blog, Social Media and in-person training. 

 

NEED A FUTURE PROOF ECOMMERCE SOLUTION?

The new look and functional mobile-friendly online store has been welcomed by Graft A Lash’s professional clientele and is helping the brand to garner nationwide new business.

Graft A Lash now has a secure foundation for ongoing growth through the implementation of WooCommerce which allows the integration of a wide range of software solutions to increase productivity and marketing abilities. 

If you are in the online retail space – or would like to be – and are looking for a fully customisable and editable system that you have full control over – contact us to see if we’re a good match

After recently starting my new business, I was very nervous and had not a great idea about websites of where to start,
Ben and Sams help has been beyond what I could have imagined.

They answer my emails, calls and texts at all hours of the day when ideas pop into my head!

Their creative plans for my website have been invaluable and I am looking forward to watching my business grow
Honesty don’t know what I would do without their constant assistance and professional advice.

Dream Big Nation

Dream Big Nation

Dream Big Nation

The Dream Big Nation is a team website for a cosmetic consultancy business. The website displays their team achievements, features a blog, team events and general information text, galleries, videos and audios about the products they consult with.

What you see on the front end is only just the beginning – this site is not just visually exciting but highly functional.

Behind the scenes and locked away from the general public is a complete team training solution filled with step by step training systems, documents that can easily be downloaded and filled, and easy to follow videos. The best part is all of this is managed via Google Drive – meaning just one source of document management keeps it super simple and user friendly. Documents added or removed from the associated Google Drive folders are also mirrored on the website. This saves hours of administration manually checking if each of the two systems are the same.

THIS SYSTEM IS UNIQUE

Having a single source of document administration in any system is a must. We carefully reviewed their working processes and came up with the perfect solution so they only had to manage their documents in one place. They already had a great layout in Google Drive, so an integration was chosen so the Google Drive documents were replicated in the secure team portal side of the website. The result is an easy to use system that is simple to manage for both the leaders and the team at learge.

LOOKING FOR A CUSTOM LEARNING SOLUTION?

If you and your team require a membership style site and meeting place, complete with blog roll to celebrate your achievements, make announcements and share your sport, goals, product or service, all with room for growth – contact us to see how we can help you win too!

Mid Coast Kitchens

Mid Coast Kitchens

Kitchen Manufacturer Web Design

The team at Mid Coast Kitchens are well known for providing the personal touch when it comes time for your dream kitchen design or renovation.

They build beautiful and functional kitchens and they were in desperate need of a website that displayed their creations in the same exceptional light and fostered inspiration in the minds of its visitors.

 
MODERNISE WITH A WEBSITE REBUILD

Their old website just wasn’t cutting it anymore. It was a basic 5-page website lacking in all important information and imagery that such a business requires, and by today’s comparison was letting their brand down dramatically.

With kitchens being a very visual experience, special care was taken in the website design phase to ensure that the design elements played a really big part in the overall user flow through and experience of the site and brand.

 

VISUAL DESIGN SHOWCASING VISUAL RESULTS

The end result is a highly functional website with easy to browse text, images, galleries and FAQs to help make choosing a kitchen design as easy as it should be.

It represents the people behind the business, builds trust through transparency of information, and is now a valuable tool used both in their physical showroom and online to present specific design features and options as well as overall finished projects to their potential clients, and open 24/7!

 
OPTIMISATION = MORE EYES ON YOUR SITE, MORE SALES, LESS ANGST!

From our analysis of Google Analytics, we found that the majority of people visiting the site browsed using a tablet device. This indicated that the website needed to be optimised to display all visual content just as good as if it was viewed on a laptop, desktop or smartphone. The end result is truly impressive and responsive.

 
DO YOU HAVE AN INFORMATION OR VISUALLY HEAVY SITE THAT NEEDS MOBILE OPTIMISING?

If you take a look at your website on your mobile phone and find it scattered and hard to read and use, chances are your site is not mobile optimised and you may be upsetting a lot of potential customers right away, making it hard or even impossible for them to purchase from you. Mobile optimisation can no longer be ignored as smart device use and convenience is only rising and not going anywhere anytime soon! – Contact us to discuss your options for an upgrade to your best brand foot forward today.

Mid Coast Kitchens was in need of a new, fresh and modern website to promote and show off our great work.

As we had dealt with Ben & Sam for many years when needing technical assistance, it was an easy decision to trust Ben & Sam with the online presence of business.

They were brilliant – so easy to deal with…. prompting us along the way when we needed help and always just a phone call away when we had questions building the framework.

We make wonderful kitchens and time is money, so Ben & Sam let us do what we do best – and they certainly did what they do best!

The result of great communication and their technical know how has resulted in a fantastic website that will serve
Mid Coast Kitchens well into the future.
