the approach

To get a big improvement on page load speed I streamlined the content and resized and compressed all the images. I implemented all the usual SEO tactics of alt tags, meta descriptions and keyword targetting, whilst also improving the usability of the site.

The site originally didn't have a contact form, so I added a simple form as well as a more complex 'request a quote form' to enable Papersmyths to move their projects along at a more efficient rate.

the results

Papersmyths is now ranked in the first position on Google for the main keyword and places on the first page for a number of others. They have seen a significant increase in traffic and a 30% increase coming from Google search.

The implementation of the 'request a quote' form has been a huge success and has helped speed up the process of getting contracts.
