  2. That one time I saved a business over £40k in retainer fees

    Leave a Comment

    I can’t believe I haven’t been shouting about this way before now!

    I had been doing a bit of a browse through my portfolio from my time as a freelancer at KP Kreative and asked myself why have I kept this positive outcome so quiet. I guess because the visual side of the project wasn’t where the wins came from (more of a backend project), it was more difficult to present as a case study.

    The customer in question has been using Hubspot for their website and marketing needs. They had been using an agency that was charging around £4k a month regardless of any support needed or not, it was just one of those tied in contracts where there was a set fee.

    Now don’t get me wrong, Hubspot development and support can be costly, as its very niche, though there isn’t always the need for that level of support continuously from outside the business. I think an adhoc approach may have been better in my opinion.

    I was approached by the head of marketing who asked if I could help assist with making the backend of the website more accessible for internal staff,  so things could be added and edited much more simpler, without the aid of having someone else needing to pick up the changes.

    Approach

    Without a complete redesign of the website, I proposed to work on some custom modules and made some of the existing page templates flexible, so that they could be much simpler accessed and edited by the in-house team, not only to edit current pages, though add additional pages with the newly created templates and modules to choose from.

    Over a calendar year, this would save the business around £48k.

    Adding customisation and blocks of content that can be re-used and have flexibility to move, the team reduced their workload significantly to creating new content for their website.

    No matter if it’s a WordPress website or a Hubspot website, I build with the view to making it user friendly for the customer to make as many updates as possible themselves. This may sound like it’s an opportunity missed to make more income, though I feel there is more value in longer term trust with a client allowing them to save budget and spend it elsewhere in their business and come back to you when they need additional support from one of your other services, such as printed material, graphics etc etc.

  3. The Power of an Online Presence: Why Your Business Needs a Website

    Leave a Comment

    In today’s digital age, having a strong online presence is essential for businesses of all sizes. With the vast majority of consumers turning to the internet for information and solutions, having a well-designed and informative website is no longer a luxury but a necessity. In this blog post, we’ll explore the importance of having an online presence for your business and delve into the numerous benefits that a business website can bring.

    24/7 Availability:

    Unlike a physical store with limited operating hours, a business website is accessible to potential customers around the clock. Whether it’s the middle of the night or a public holiday, your website is always available to showcase your products or services, answer customer inquiries, and provide valuable information. This constant availability allows you to reach a global audience and tap into new markets beyond your local area.

    Credibility and Trust:

    A professionally designed website lends credibility and builds trust with potential customers. In today’s digital world, consumers expect legitimate businesses to have an online presence. A well-crafted website can convey your brand’s values, showcase customer testimonials, highlight your expertise, and provide essential contact information. By having a website, you establish your business as a trustworthy entity, increasing the likelihood of converting visitors into loyal customers.

    Increased Reach and Targeted Marketing:

    With a business website, you can expand your reach far beyond the confines of your physical location. By implementing effective search engine optimization (SEO) strategies, you can improve your website’s visibility on search engine results pages. This means that when potential customers search for relevant keywords or phrases related to your business, your website has a higher chance of appearing at the top of their search results. By targeting specific keywords and optimizing your content, you can attract highly relevant traffic to your site, resulting in increased conversions and sales.

    Showcase Your Products and Services:

    A website provides you with an ideal platform to showcase your products or services in a visually appealing and informative manner. You can use high-quality images, videos, and detailed descriptions to engage visitors and demonstrate the value you offer. A well-designed website allows potential customers to explore your offerings at their own pace, compare different options, and make informed purchasing decisions. This not only enhances the user experience but also increases the likelihood of conversions.

    Cost-Effective Marketing:

    Compared to traditional forms of advertising, such as print media or television commercials, a business website offers a cost-effective marketing solution. Establishing and maintaining an online presence is generally more affordable, and the results are often measurable. Through various online marketing channels like social media, email newsletters, and content marketing, you can drive targeted traffic to your website, resulting in increased brand awareness and customer engagement.

    Customer Interaction and Feedback:

    A website serves as a platform for customer interaction and feedback. By incorporating contact forms, live chat, or customer support systems, you can easily engage with your audience, address their concerns, and provide timely assistance. Additionally, by encouraging customers to leave reviews or feedback on your website, you can build a positive online reputation and gather valuable insights for future improvements.

    Conclusion:

    In today’s competitive business landscape, having a strong online presence through a business website is crucial for success. It not only allows you to reach a broader audience and establish credibility but also provides a platform for showcasing your products or services, engaging with customers, and driving conversions. By embracing the power of an online presence, you position your business for growth, increased visibility, and a competitive edge in the digital marketplace. So, invest in a well-designed website and harness the countless benefits it brings to your business.

     

  4. KP Kreative continues to back St. Mirren FC

    Leave a Comment

    For a sixth year running, KP Kreative is delighted to advertise with St. Mirren FC trackside and on both sides of the main stand for the 2023/24 season.

    Advertising at St. Mirren Park has brought great exposure to KP Kreative, not just from a match day spectator perspective, though also through TV coverage on channels such as Sky Sports, ViaPlay and the BBC.

    Last season was an historic one, where the club made their highest league finish in over 30 years and just falling short of a European place in the last few weeks of the season.

    Hopefully a strong season ahead with the dreams of a European venture that little bit closer.

    If you would like to advertise at St. Mirren, I would highly recommend it, by getting in touch with Campbell Kennedy or Tommy Adams at [email protected]

    Come on you saints!
