4 Extra Bank Holidays? That Ain’t So Bad!

By | News, Rossendale, Thoughts | No Comments

I’ve got a rule that I don’t do party political when I’m blogging. So I’ll try my best to remain as objective as possible whilst speaking about the Labour Party’s 2017 manifesto pledge to increase the number of Bank Holiday’s to 12 if they are elected.

The reason I feel obliged to get into this debate is because I carried out some research on this last year as part of a campaign concept creation for a certain absence management software firm, so I’ve spent many hours getting a perspective on this.

The basic premise of the campaign was to educate business owners about the benefits of employees taking time off. I believed this would facilitate the creation of a campaign that wasn’t overly sales orientated, but which was well aligned to the core functionality of the product, and which was also contrary to the prevailing machismo of entrepreneurial literature – at least enough to make business owners sit up and take notice.  Read More

Should Rossendale Businesses Create More Engaging Workplaces?

By | Rossendale, Thoughts | No Comments

We’ve all heard about the offices of the world’s leading tech-brands. But have you ever wondered if you should be adapting your workplace to follow these trends? Based in Bacup in Rossendale in deepest darkest east Lancashire, we don’t see many businesses embracing that ethos around here – but on a day to day basis I see this spreading from outwards from the centre of Manchester. And Rossendale really isn’t that far from Manchester.

I’ve been fortunate enough to be involved in a comprehensive research program, working with leading business psychologists and workplace consultants, reviewing the emerging phenomenon of engaging workspaces. Despite having summarised this to some extent before, in this post I wanted to summarise some of the things we learned and apply some of those thoughts to Rossendale (where I live). Read More

Kidult and Co: Rossendale’s Creative Business 2016

By | News, Rossendale, Thoughts | No Comments

So last week, on 9th November, we had a rather exciting evening here at GrowTraffic. After much build up and a lot of difficult judging (some may call it arguing!), it was finally the awards dinner itself for the 2016 Rossendale Business Awards, where GT were sponsoring the Creative Business category.

Held at the impressively large and well-appointed Whitworth Riverside, the evening was the culmination of much hard work by the event’s organisers, the Valley at Work business networking group, and was the perfect opportunity for Rossendale businesses to come together, let their hair down and celebrate another year’s great work. And what a celebration it was!

But in amongst all the other impressive businesses there on the night was the one that shone out the most for us, the winner of our Creative Business award in fact, the fabulous Kidult and Co. I met up with the girls earlier this week to talk about the business, their success and what it meant to win this award. Read More

It’s been an exciting week at GrowTraffic, because this week was the week of the Rossendale Business Awards where we got to present the Creative Business category which we sponsored and helped to judge.

It doesn’t seem that long ago that we were busy at GT HQ with our judging hats on busy working our way through the nominations for the incredibly strong category, that was full of exceptional local businesses. This was round one of the judging process and it was a tough call! Read More

Affordable SEO Web Design

By | Rossendale, Search Engines, SEO, Web Design | One Comment

NWDigital Website by GrowTrafficThere’s absolutely no way of getting around this; in this modern age of technology, it’s essential that all businesses have a web presence of one form or another. We can’t stress that enough and most of you will be well aware of this already, but for those of you who are trying to fight against the tide, now is the time to concede defeat gracefully and jump on the old World Wide Web bandwagon.

Whatever shape or size your business comes in and whoever your target audience is, having a successful website is crucial if you want your customer base to grow and your revenue to thrive. Building a website that works for your company and your customers is a huge undertaking though and can be a daunting task, especially as websites now need to be exceptional and regularly maintained in order to rank time and again.

Whilst almost anyone can design and build a website (there are multitudinous companies out there that will help you build a ‘bog standard’ website quickly and cheaply), very few people are dedicated SEO Consultants who can ensure that your website is search engine optimised from the very beginning.

British Sri Lanka Association Website by GrowTrafficBased in Rossendale, in the beautiful East Lancashire, we specialise in all things SEO and have a web design service that can really add value to your website build. We only work with exceptional designers whose work we can guarantee and, as we collaborate from the start of a project, we can ensure that all the websites we build are eye catching yet functional.

Our intention in everything we do is to make sure that your new website attracts traffic and then converts it. From simple, no-nonsense websites to large e-commerce sites, GrowTraffic has helped design and build them all; basically, we make websites that make you money.

Web Design Agency v Freelance SEO Web Design

The problem with Web Design Agencies of a certain size and experience is that you have to pay for it. GrowTraffic manage the design and build of websites on a freelance basis, meaning that we can keep the costs down whilst still offering the same standards that you’d expect from larger Web Agencies.Guy Wakeling Jewellery Website by GrowTraffic

The biggest benefit, however, of using Freelance SEO Web Design is that the entire process is managed by search marketing experts, meaning that from day one your website will be designed to perform in the search engine results pages.

Contact GrowTraffic for SEO Web Design

If you’re in need of a new website, or even if your current website is in need of a re-vamp, then a Freelance Web Design Agency might be just the answer you’re looking for. GrowTraffic have years of experience in this field and we know what works.

Why not give us a call on 07495 181007, letting us know what your requirements are, and we’ll be happy to have a chat and give you our opinion on what’s best for you and your business. Alternatively, you can use the contact form on the website to get in touch.
