One of our favourite aspects of providing professional web design to such as wide range of clients is that we literally never know what we’ll be working on next.

One day we’re putting together a serious site about financial advice, the next we’re helping an online retailer boost sales.

We enjoyed putting together the great ecommerce website that we’ve just completed for Chris from Lilley’s Catering Leisure Ltd, even if looking at all those Somerset ciders did make our mouths water!

Lilley’s sell some of the world’s finest ciders, ales and wines from their base in Somerset and asked us to build an ecommerce website that could really showcase his unusual finds and whet the appetite of his online customers.

Of course we needed to keep one eye on building a website that fully complied with regulations concerning the sale of alcohol but that didn’t stop us putting together an ecommerce website that’s already yielding fantastic results.

Just one month after launch is generating almost 2,000 unique visitors and is managing to entice a full 25% of them to return for repeat visits.  Within a month the site is fully indexed by Google and being revisited every two days.

The most popular keywords are Lilley's cider, bee sting cider, buy cider online, black dragon cider, Thatchers cider, welsh cider and Lilley's cider barn... to name just a few. Cider lovers clearly love their drinks and know how to search them out online!

Traffic from Google now accounts for 52% of visitors and a new social media campaign looks set to improve things further.  It’s early days for Lilley’s but the signs are promising and it’s amazing what can happen in one month.
