Bauxit Painting & Decorating Notes

  • Google search your keywords and review your competitions websites
  • Update Google My Business page
  • Review how many times your competitors use their keywords on their website
  • Think about creating service pages focused on localised areas you cover for the future
  • Add in local areas where possible i.e. on images, on testimonials, footer
  • Put your company address in the footer
  • Make site title: Interior Exterior Painting Hereford – Bauxit
  • Run each of your pages through Text Optimiser to see if they are covering the topic areas and keywords effectively

Bristol Illustrator Holly Foskett-Barnes Notes

  • Make web logo link to your homepage

    • Start with a dedicated page page on Art Commissions
    • Add a FAQ section
    • CTA contact button

    • Talk about your process/inspiration
    • Examples of work
  • Pricing – don’t be shy to share this.
    • Phases like ‘Commission range from….’ will filter out the people who can’t/ won’t want to pay
    • Also promote affordable prints/ lower priced work for those people who can’t afford a commission
  • Keywords in titles/paragraph text need to be Artwork Commissions Bristol and variations of this throughout your website
