So your company needs to appear on the screen in front of your prospective customer as soon as they put a search in for the particular product or service that you have to offer.

"Its all about visibilty"
You can have the loveliest all singing and dancing website with all the flags and whistles and all the fancy graphics etc but if no one can see it, you may just as well have put a large neon sign up in the desert. It looks great but no one is going to see it.
One of the biggest mistakes people make is allowing their website to be created and managed by a designer.The design of a website is the least important thing when it comes to a website that works. Its got to look good yes, its got to be professional yes, but the most important thing is that it has to have a purpose and it has to be functional. What is it you want people to do when they get to your site ? Do you want them to call you ? Do you want them to register with you ? Do you want them to buy stuff ? People need direction when they get to your site.
Graphic design, web design, web development, web marketing, are all very different skill sets. Its important to know when to apply these various skill sets across all the marketing functions that will ultimately decide if both your offline and your online marketing activity work..
The way to approach online marketing is very very different to how you would approach a company brochure or sales document. That is why the vast majority of businesses fail online because they allow the "Design" of their site to impact on the visibilty of their site from a search engine perspective. The sites we produce not only look good, they are visible and functional.

“I was recommended to contact MBM after being let down by an independent web developer. From the initial conversation with Chris I felt at ease and had a sense that MBM knew what they were doing and that I was in safe hands. They tactfully suggested some improvements to my existing logo and came up with some excellent designs within a couple of hours of my call...Chris suggested I come along to the Studios to meet the creative team and discuss what I wanted for my website and designs for stationery. Neil and Graham were great – from both a design and functional standpoint, we came up with a template for a website which I am thrilled with and is within the budget. Despite all my last minute changes and demands MBM have exceeded my expectations, been great people to work with and will now handle all our marketing and design requirements from here on in.
I cannot hesitate in recommending them as a full design, marketing and print business”

"Early in 2009 we decided that we needed a long term strategic partner to refresh our web site, update our company literature and assist with the launch of our new logo. After interviewing three companies we chose MBM.
We have been extremely pleased with the high level of quality, concern for detail and their speed of response. We find them a very reliable and profession company. It is our intention to further cement our relationship as we move forward over the next few years of difficult trading, when we will need the support of people like MBM as part of our team."
Steve Blower, Commercial Director, MJChurch
“Right from our initial contact we found MBM to be extremely professional, customer focused and responsive to all of our requirements. They have produced quality results in a timely fashion and have delivered excellent value for money. We are extremely pleased with our new website and would happily recommend them to anyone requiring this type of service. Thank-you MBM.”
