Blog content for SEO (Google loves content)

Supported Holidays website for Morley Care Services, created and maintained by Kingdomedia.

Some great feedback from Morley Care Services today following on from the website and blog that we designed and maintain for their Supported Holidays: “Our holidays have sold like hot cakes this year thanks to the website”. The website we designed last year continues to rise in search engine listings thanks in part to Tag’s blog which is maintained by Kingdomedia. Ongoing website maintenance is SO important to keep a website current and easily findable by customers and clients so that their product or service can keep selling like hot cakes! Keeping a live blog is one great way to do this and is one part of the service offered by Kingdom Creative Media UK.

New Website design and build project for CJ’s Holiday Homes

New Website design and build project, for a lovely family owned business in Tattersall Lakes Country Park and Butlins, Skegness.

Preview of newwebsite for CJ's Holiday Homes bu KingdomediaHere’s a sneak preview of a website project which we are currently working on for CJ’s Holiday Homes. CJ’s needed a website refresh and design upgrade to improve the look of their site and to bring it more up to date. We have gone for the owner’s favourite colours as a theme after careful consultation with her and have started our work with a total re-brand and also introduced new company logo as a base for this project. This is a 50+ paged site and growing, with over 600 gallery images, which is keeping us busy and out of trouble.

We wanted to keep this site user-friendly so that visitors can easily access the wealth of information about the holidays on offer and get straight to their holiday home of interest. With the abundance of inviting photographs of lovely holiday homes on offer we have even started to think about our own holidays!

Responsive website for Liberty

We were busy just before Christmas and after those few extra tweaks here is our latest website completed for Liberty Church, Rotherham. It is also built as a multi-site which means that in future it will be easier (and less time consuming) to add a site for another campus. We like to think ahead!

Liberty Church, Rotherham, RESPONSIVE WEBSITE by KingdomediaWell it’s actually a revamp of the old one, with the same style and branding, but much more forward thinking in that it is also now a responsive website – i.e. it responds to whatever device it is viewed on for optimum viewing.

In addition, we have partnered up with GreneIT, who provide ‘green hosting’ along with SSL certificates, which means that as well as following best practice for more environmentally friendly hosting the website is now more secure. For more details please visit their website: www.greneit.com

As this website is close to our hearts we are pleased that the Liberty Church, Rotherham, website is finally ready for multi-device viewing. The site is colourful and vibrant, which exactly captures the kind of church that Liberty is and we hope that it will set them off on a good start for 2018.

We will soon be giving the same treatment to Liberty Church, Swinton, so watch this space.

New year, new start

Instead of writing a blog post about our latest project, we have written this update to encourage you to think about how this time of year can be the best time to promote YOUR charity or organisation… a sort of freebie from us here at Kingdomedia :-).

Profile your organisation through digital marketing by KingdomediaRather than settling for the January blues this time of year it’s great to get one step ahead of the game, which can be vital when it comes to fundraising and getting awareness of the good things you are doing out there. We’ve put together a couple of ideas to help you get started…

Use this time to think through how you would like to advertise in the coming year – do you have a marketing strategy for the next 12 months?

A new year is a new start and a good time to introduce something fresh and creative. It could be a competition, some free giveaways, an ‘introduce-a-friend’ scheme or a loyalty discount as some examples.

Don’t forget social media of course – now could be the time to revamp your charities’ Facebook page for example and most importantly make sure you commit to regular posting about your activities. Not only is this an easy (and free!) way to regularly get your organisation out there, search engines love it and if your social media is linked to your website it will really help to improve it’s place in search engine listings. Speak to us to find out more about ‘SEO’ or search engine optimisation.

And finally, before the busyness of this next year kicks in, don’t forget that your organisation is worth spending that extra time on to profile it properly! You will reap the rewards in months to come if you can give it some time and thought now. Kingdomedia would like to wish you every success in 2018.

Getting in the Christmas spirit with Liberty

Print sample for Liberty Christmas Posties by KingdomediaIt’s that time of year again and it’s always a busy time for us in terms of designing Christmassy things. This time it’s for Liberty Church Rotherham, and Liberty Church Swinton, to advertise their upcoming Christmas events. We created a set of versatile postcards so that they are easy to hand out on the street, look good in a display at the church’s info point, and are easy to put in your back pocket. Keeping it simple with enough info to advertise the events and that little bit of Christmas cheer. Merry Christmas everyone!

Christmas Grizzly is on the loose!!!

Promotional materials for Bolsterstone Christmas Trees by Kingdomedia‘Bolsterstone Christmas Trees hire grizzly bear with the help of International Freight Solutions…’ …well, not quite, but we like a bit of fun at this time of year so we thought we would share in some festive fun with our friends at Bolsterstone.

We had fun designing and making ‘Grizzly Bear’ (4′ high from standing), a couple of signs and some promotional flyers to advertise a bear hunt and Christmas tree sale.

A whole array of Christmas trees from 4ft to 40ft are now on sale in Bolsterstone, and of course tell your kids to watch out for grizzly bears on the loose!

Excalibur does the trick

Excalibur Banner Stand for Lost Chord by KingdomediaWhat’s Excalibur? I hear you ask… Well it’s none other than one of our best quality, sturdy and double sided pull-up banner stands. Standing at 1 metre wide and 2 metres high our new design for Lost Chord on an Excalibur stand will be the perfect backdrop for some of Lost Chord’s musicians as they perform in places such as Meadowhall, and also for Lost Chord generally to promote themselves far and wide. Being built to last it’s the perfect advertising tool for them to take around wherever they go.

At Kingdomedia we have built up some amazing supplier relationships over the years, making us fortunate enough to buy all our print at trade price, which helps us to pass on great savings to our customers. If you want ‘professional design’ and ‘great value promotional materials’, contact us to see how we can help you.

What’s all this about SSL?!

SSL_secure_websites_kingdomedia.org.ukGood question. A lot of people have been asking this, and Kingdomedia has been working with a number of our regular clients to help them navigate the latest web minefield created by an update to Google Chromes security.

We have even created a section on our website to help clients understand what it is and how we can help with it! Check it out here and get your questions answered…

Time to shop, shop, shop

It’s been great to collaborate with our friends at Grene IT to develop the shopping cart feature of Lost Chord’s website. A perfect example of how a website can keep growing and evolving, with the addition of an online shop to help Lost Chord sell items and also tickets for upcoming events. Accessible from the home page of the website we think the shop is both easy to manage for a web visitor but also has that design flair that makes it more than ‘just’ a shopping feature.

Through the online-shop Lost Chord sold over 400 tickets, generating healthy income sales, for a recent Lesley Garrett concert at Doncaster Minster.

Lost Chord Charity's website by KingdomediaIs your organisation’s website in need of a refresh? Is it even compliant with Google’s new security measures? We have been helping many of our clients from the community and voluntary sector to make their websites fully responsive to multiple devices and also remain in favour with Google. Should you like to discuss any of the above issues please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Happy 40th Birthday Maltby (Rother Valley) Lions!

It’s been a privilege to support the Lions in their good work over the last 30 years and here at Kingdomedia we wish all the Lions past and present a very happy 40th birthday!

The Lions certainly know how to celebrate… they party as hard as they work, for so many amazing local causes.
