Keeping IT Real

M6 GrM6-Group-Logooup of Companies

Back in August, we were approached by our client, M6 Group, to bring their websites up to date. We started working on a major revamp and upgrade a couple of weeks ago.

M6 Group is a commercial vehicle hire and servicing company and they have two websites, their main M6 Group website and Birmingham Test Centre website. Both websites were looking outdated with old images and out of date text. We are working through the websites to give them a new look and new feel, and lots of new content that talks about what they do, and how they add value to the service they provide for their customers.

So far, we have written the new content for the M6 website, and the build is coming along really well, it’s looking smart and modern, which is what they needed. Unfortunately, the person that we’ve been working closely with, Jules, who is their vehicle hire manager, fell out of a lorry the week before last and broke her arm! So, now she’s sending us stuff whilst typing very, very slowly, one finger at a time. We send her our best wishes and a speedy recovery.

We will keep you posted on how the new build goes, and once everything is up and running,  we will let everybody know so you can have a look at their smart new website.

Raysfield Pre-School Cartoon-lion-preschool-logo

A few weeks ago, Raysfield Pre-School approached us with problems they were having adding content on to their website. One of the benefits of having a WordPress website is that it’s a content management system, which means you have access to it, and you can make changes yourself if you need to.

Unfortunately, Raysfield’s website theme had been updated a few years ago by somebody else, not us, to a theme that is no longer supported and the person who did it is no longer available. This put the Pre-School in a situation whereby it was becoming increasingly difficult for them to update the website.

So, they asked us if we would have a look at it and fix the problems for them. We agreed that we could fix it, but the main issue was that the theme was no longer being updated, which meant that as time went on, they would encounter more and more problems. As they are a charity, we offered to update the website theme and move everything over so that the situation wouldn’t happen again, free of charge. The website is now up and running, take a look here.

Monthly Website Reports 

We have been issuing the Monthly Website Reports for a while now, and, although we did write a blog about them back in July 2019, we thought it was about time we talked through the reports with you to explain in more detail what it all means.

This is a very brief summary of what your Report includes.

  • It contains data about updates, analytics and security.
  • It can help you track website traffic, and you can use it to identify areas for improvement, for example, how to convert more website visitors to sales leads.
  • It tells you how fast your website loads as well as the number of pages a visitor views.

Starting from the end of this month when we send out October’s reports, we will be ringing around everybody to talk through them with you, what it all means and how we can help you move forward in your businesses.

We hope the Monthly Website Report is clear and easy to understand, but contact us if you would like more information or to discuss how we can support you over the next few months.
