Website Design and Build

Red E uses the WordPress content management system.

WordPress powers more than 17% of the web – a figure that rises every day. Everything from simple websites and blogs to complex portals and enterprise websites and even applications are built with WordPress.

WordPress combines simplicity for users and publishers with under-the-hood complexity for developers. This makes it flexible while still being easy-to-use.

Social Media and Marketing

Your presence on the web includes your website and what you and your customers are saying in blogs, on Twitter and FaceBook. Encourage them. Participate yourself and bring it all back to your website using social media feeds.

How do you respond to the new Web where your customers’ opinions sit above yours in Google? Have you any content on YouTube or do you have a blog? Have you tried creating a hash-tag for visitors to your latest event or exhibition?

Red E can help you to organise your online time to get the best from social media, from simple integration of Twitter feeds into your site to the creation of Key Performance Indicators to interpret your Google Analytics.

Search Engine Optimisation and Accessibility

Red E will ensure your website is search-engine friendly, improving ranking and click-through using a variety of optimisations including:

  • Search Console
  • Google Maps
  • Analytics
  • AdWords and AdWords Express
  • On-page optimisations
  • Meta-data optimisations

Training will ensure that editors understand the importance of search terms and other SEO techniques through the use of a simple to use “traffic-light” SEO analysis tool within your WordPress content management system.

We can ensure that your staff understand the importance of maintaining good accessibility standards so that WCAG checkpoints required for Level A or AA compliance are not overlooked during content management.

  • WordPress
