Martin Dobson Couture Website Design & Build

Recently Rachel and I had the pleasure of working on a website for Martin Dobson who is an extraordinarily talented wedding dress designer and maker based in London and Woodbridge Suffolk.

Martin was unhappy with his website and ask us to redesign and rebuild it. Martin was concerned that his current site was not communicating his offering effectively and people visiting the site were not fully understanding the type of work Martin does and the processes involved.

We decided that it was going to take more than words to express Martins business fully, so we decided also to undertake a photo shoot to capture images that would feature on the finished website.

Photo Shoot

Here are some of the images from the photo shoot...

Text & Copy

We spend some time on this project writing copy for the new website. Now we are not professional copywriters, but as there was only a small budget available for copywriting at the time of creating the site decided to undertake this work ourselves.

We would always recommend using a professional copywriter for the main pages of your website excluding the majority of your daily or weekly posts to your blog. 

Professional copywriters can help to channel your message and make your pages communicate more effectively with your audience. Professional copywriting can also be useful in regards to the website design process too as vital information is organised and made clear before any content is designed and arranged on the website.

However having said all that, with our basic copywriting skills I think we managed to do a pretty good job.

Google and SEO

We submitted the website to Google and did some standard onsite SEO. Even with a relatively small website, we were able to achieve position one and two on Google for the search term Martin was most interested in, beating many of his competitors.
