They are also supportive of local communities, making donations to Centrepoint to aid homeless young people and the Epping Forest Food Bank to support local families in need.

The Goals:

MP Chartered Architects, while already enjoying a strong reputation in their field, wanted to amplify their online presence and visibility. They were seeking to leverage digital marketing to drive traffic, boost their rankings for specific keywords related to their services, and ultimately generate more leads and business inquiries.

The Strategy:

At StuartKerrs, we embarked on an ambitious project of overhauling their website using WordPress and incorporating modern web technologies like PHP, Ajax, JavaScript, jQuery, HTML5, CSS 3, and Twitter Bootstrap. This enhanced both the visual appeal and functionality of the site, elevating the user experience.

Simultaneously, we initiated a comprehensive SEO strategy. Relevant, high-volume keywords were meticulously chosen and implemented across their website. On-page elements such as metadata, header tags, and image alt tags were optimized. To ensure a regular influx of fresh content, a weekly content calendar was prepared and implemented.

Link-building formed a crucial part of our strategy, where we sought backlinks from high-authority, relevant websites. This included guest posts, press releases, and active social media engagement. Local SEO also received attention, with the firm's business listed on Google My Business and Google Maps.

The Result:

The results were rewarding. MP Chartered Architects saw an upsurge in website traffic, and their keyword rankings improved noticeably within a short period. The bounce rate dropped by 9%, and the number of returning visitors increased by 85%. The local SEO strategy also showed impressive results, bringing in more local queries.

The most significant achievement was the improvement in the conversion rate, leading to an increase in leads and business inquiries. This resulted in a higher ROI on their digital marketing investment.
