Adeyfield School -

Staff and students look forward to new website launch           

It has taken 6 months to build but we can now unveil Adeyfields new website, we built the site from scratch and gave it a whole new look making it look fresher, more contemporary and easy to navigate.


It was a project that came about when we started talking to the school about the student planners and what their goals for the year would be and the website was a priority, so we jumped at the chance to be included in the brief and we managed to secure the project and 6 months on we are launching the site in time for
the new term.

Andy Gerlack said ' The website looks stunning and our designers have to take most of the credit for it as they have done the creative work but I also have to thank Adeyfield Scool as well for giving us this opportunity and the staff in particular as they gave us a very good site map to begin with.

If you think your website needs a bit of tweaking or a bit of a re-vamp then give us a call on 01296 489998 or 01442 345088 or email us at hello@freshdps.co.uk

Piatto Bianco - Fast Food Branding

Delivering their expectations

With only 10 days before they were due to open, the owners of Piatto Bianco, an Italian Fine Dining Restaurant at Verney Junction called Fresh to see if we could help, the problem they had was they had no look, logo, or more importanly no marketing material.

So what happened in 1 week was that we came up with the logo, the look, the brand, and menus for lunch and evening, comment cards, 13,000 leaflets, business cards, vinyl banners, bill receipt, invoice holders, kitchen orders as well as signage for the exterior.

The results were incredible and was all done to perfection and in a day before the opening.

Andy Gerlack fro Fresh stated, ' We drew on all our experience on this one as it was very, very tight, but this is why so many companies choose us, it is because we deliver their expectations, where else or who else could do what we do.'

Positive News alert!!

With so much bad news about at the moment, you have to look really hard to find the good shoots of growth coming through so we thought we would relay some good news stories to try and combat some of the doom gloom out there and to show that there is light at the end of the tunnel, if you feel like us there are good stories out there, then email us at hello@freshdps.co.uk and we will publish them on your behalf.

Activity in the UK's service sector expanded in July at its fastest rate for four months, an industry survey has suggested.

The Markit/Cips services purchasing managers' index (PMI) rose to 55.4 in July from 53.9 in June. A figure above 50 indicates growth.

The figure surprised analysts who had expected a slowdown in activity.

However, the survey also indicated that the service sector cut jobs despite the increased activity.

Employment in the sector had increased slightly during the previous two months.

Increases in the cost of goods bought by firms slowed, but costs remained relatively high as a result of energy price increases and supply chain constraints.

Despite this, stiff competition meant that inflation in the cost of goods bought from service companies was at its lowest rate for 10 months.

The strongest increase in activity in services was seen in the Business Services and IT and Computing sectors.

Don't be anti-social.

5 reasons to embrace social media.

1. Social media is an important SEO tool. Links from social media are playing an increasingly important role in your site's search position. Since 80% of consumer purchases start with search, this reason alone is a good argument for embracing social media.

2. Your customers expect you to be social. 60% of UK citizens spend time on a social network at least once a week. YouTube reaches 36% of all business decision makers. 93% of business buyers believe all companies should have a social media presence.

3. Social media provides important marketing data and consumer feedback. You don't need surveys to find out what your prospects are thinking. The buyers in your market are telling you this now in social media. But you have to listen.

4. Social media is the new PR. Journalists increasingly rely on social media to research story ideas, sources and trends. A PR program that relies on phone, online wire services, and mail is no longer effective.

5. Social media produces very high conversion on leads. Leads from social focus on quality not quantity. Prospects that engage with you on social networks are more likely to look favorably on your company and brand, and its offerings.
