It’s always nice to work with local family businesses and none more so than Dandy’s of Barrow. Run by husband and wife Jeff and Jane Dandy for 37 years.
We’ve been a little bit quite of late. The reason being we’ve been planning our wedding. We’re now very proud to say Freshspace is run by husband and wife team Darren and Eilidh Nicholls. And we couldn’t be happier!
The truth is in the stats, because it’s here that we can see how well (or not) a website has improved. With this is mind we reviewed our Appleby-based client, H. Pigney & Son’s WordPress website traffic in Google Analytics to see how it’s performance has changed over the past 9 months.
Of late we’ve worked on a number of websites that have required managing imports of 100’s if not 1000’s of products to WordPress sites. It’s been an interesting learning curve for us both and means we’ve got another feather in our caps when it comes to helping clients with their business needs.
The new e-commerce site we built for Foxfield Garden Centre was the product of a random phone call and an unexpected meeting last December.
We were enthusiastic about business owner Alan Benson’s plan to move into the online market with his wide range of specialist plants. It was his vision to not only sell across Cumbria and the Lake District, but on a national level too.
“Choosing someone to design a website can be a daunting process especially as we had received convincing briefs from a number of web designers. We chose Darren and Eilidh as they understood exactly what we were looking for and got behind the brief straight away. They designed an e-commerce website for us and we are delighted with the result, not only from the point of view as to how the site looks but how easy it is for us to edit the content and process orders. Freshspace provides an extremely professional service with fast and efficient response times and excellent back-up support. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.”
