The most recent project we have had great success with is. www.pureprints.com.
The wedding photography industry is very popular on the internet with allot of competition. Wedding photographers are all trying to compete for the top positions on google. The aim of the project was to use all the techniques we have learn't over the past years to produce leads that will turn into sales for Richard Barley Photography. We used standard SEO techniques that helped the website rank on the first page of google after six months. The website is now on the first page of google 99% of the time.
Design a website that is simple to use with image thumbnails that will download fast into the browser. Make the website search engine friendly and start a google adwords campaign. Make the site interactive with a blog and social media connections. Make it possible to sell prints online and digital files to download. Use very little flash content to make the site iPad friendly. Expand the pureprints website with a training website. Get more leads and more sales for pureprints.com and pureprintstraining.co.uk.
The site is designed using PHP with a SQL database. The main colours are black,white and grey. The design is composed to make the top third of the page interesting to viewers. A slideshow including music plays as soon as the homepage is loaded. Low resolution Images load up instantly to give instant interest. The site is HTML/CSS and search engine friendly. The website has a back end that allows the webmaster of the site to update the pages.
Web Design for Photographers can be a challenge as you need to balance the web design for the gallery with the text required for good search engine optimisation. Our gallery web design for photographers has evolved over the past five years. We produced a flash/iphone site for www.richardbarley.co.uk and a HTML site for www.pureprints.com. The HTML only site collects wedding customers and sends them to the Richard Barley Photography Flash/iPhone website.
The targeted keywords for the website are wedding photographer worcestershire, wedding photographer worcester and photographer worcester. A google adwords campaign was started and the keywords monitored for twelve months. Onsite meta tags and search engine friendly content was added. An offsite backlink system was implemented to boost page rank. Content was added slowly to move up the rankings on google. A blog was added to gain internet presence and connection with customers.
www.purperints.com is ranked on the first page for the targeted keywords 99% of the time. The website has booked over 130 weddings directly from search engine marketing and google adwords. The return on investment has made Richard Barley Photography grow quickly with low overheads for advertising. The return on investment is 90% in the first three years. pureprints.com is now a portal for photographers who aspire to be wedding photographers. The plan for the next three years is to expand the team of photographers and training provided.
