Stroud Valley Windows – Exploding Leads With Local SEO & Their First Website

Introduction:

Wayne Bradley approached me in 2007 to design his first website and improve his local SEO to target customers in the Stroud area. Wayne Bradley Property Services was a Stroud-based window and door installation company. With 20 years of experience in the windows sector, Wayne relied on word-of-mouth referrals to grow his business. He understood he needed an online presence to reach a wider audience and expand his customer base. As part of our consultation, the company’s name was changed to Stroud Valley Windows Ltd to align with its focus on the Stroud area.

Challenges:

The challenges faced by Wayne Bradley Property Services were:

Limited Online Presence: Wayne Bradley Property Services did not have a website and had minimal online visibility, which limited Wayne’s reach to potential customers and hampered his growth prospects.

Local Competition: Several established competitors in the Stroud area made it challenging for Wayne Bradley Property Services to stand out and attract local customers.

Rebranding: In consultation with me, Wayne Bradley decided to change the name of his company to Stroud Valley Windows to reflect his focus on the Stroud area better. This required rebranding efforts to update the company name across all online platforms and ensure consistent branding.

Solutions:

To address these challenges, I implemented the following solutions:

Website Design and Development: I designed and developed a user-friendly website for Stroud Valley Windows using WordPress, incorporating relevant keywords and optimising the website for local SEO. The website featured detailed information about the company’s services and testimonials from satisfied customers.

Local SEO: I conducted comprehensive keyword research to identify the most relevant and high-performing keywords for Stroud Valley Windows. I optimised the website’s meta tags, headings, and content with these keywords and created a Google Business Profile for the company with accurate NAP (Name, Address, Phone) information. I also ensured consistent citations across relevant online directories and platforms to improve the company’s local search visibility.

Competitor Research: I conducted thorough research on the local competitors of Stroud Valley Windows to identify their strengths and weaknesses and devised strategies to differentiate Stroud Valley Windows and offer unique value propositions to potential customers.

Rebranding Efforts: I assisted Wayne Bradley in updating the company’s name and other branding elements across all online platforms, including the website, Google Business Profile, social media profiles, and online directories, to ensure consistent and coherent branding.

Results:

The implementation of these solutions yielded significant results for Stroud Valley Windows:

Increased Online Visibility: The website and local SEO efforts significantly improved Stroud Valley Windows’ online visibility, resulting in search rankings for targeted keywords and increased website traffic.

Enhanced Branding: The rebranding efforts helped Stroud Valley Windows establish a strong and consistent online brand presence, creating a professional image and instilling trust among potential customers.

Improved Customer Engagement: The website’s user-friendly design, informative content, and easy contact options increased customer engagement, with more inquiries and quote requests from potential customers.

Competitive Edge: The competitor research and unique value propositions helped Stroud Valley Windows differentiate from local competitors and position itself as a reliable and customer-focused windows, doors, and conservatories provider in the Stroud area.

Conclusion:

The case of Stroud Valley Windows is a prime example of how effective local SEO and website design can drive online success for businesses targeting a specific geographic area.

Wayne tells me he wished he moved forward with a website earlier and is getting more than enough leads each week to keep him busy.

Stroud Valley Windows now has a strong online presence, attracts more targeted traffic, and generates sufficient inquiries and bookings from local customers.

Update 2023:

Since the above work was completed, I suggested Wayne take further steps to improve his online presence.

The website was updated to be mobile-friendly and faster using GeneratePress, and HTTPS implementation was added for enhanced security.

These improvements have resulted in another significant increase in leads for the company. The website now provides an optimal browsing experience for mobile users and loads faster, improving user engagement and satisfaction.

Implementing HTTPS has also boosted the website’s credibility and trustworthiness among potential customers.

These updates have further strengthened the Stroud Valley Windows online presence, increasing leads and business growth.
