Our Happy Clients
We’ve had the pleasure of working with companies in Bristol, the UK and around the world on some incredibly exciting marketing and website projects. We’ve loved watching these businesses go from strength to strength with our services and can’t wait to work with more.
Shake & Speare are a joy to work with, Grant & Penny are so passionate about really getting to the crux of the business in order to write perfectly apt copy, they understand and work with you on briefs and were instrumental in helping with our new website. A pleasure to work with.
A couple of hours with Grant helped 3SG to see how small SEO improvements can make a big difference to our page ranking. We created new landing pages for target keywords and almost immediately had our highest ever number of page views as a result. Grant also helped us correct things like page titles and image names to maximise the number of people that might find our site organically. Overall a very positive experience thanks!
Shake and Speare have helped our small charity to develop Google Ads campaigns for the first time, providing on-site training to a complete novice with patience and clarity. They’ve been extremely helpful, knowledgeable and approachable as well as very speedy in getting us all set up. We would highly recommend working with them.
Answers to Your Questions
Why choose a Shake & Speare website?
We build beautiful sites that sell your business. We always say that your website is an online window into your business and an extension to your business card. Without one you’re missing out, and with a bad one… you’re putting people off.
We ensure you’ll have a quality, well designed, user focused website.
Why do I need to bother with SEO?
A site that can’t be found is worthless, if you’re using it to drive business. SEO, or search engine optimisation, is the process of making your website look attractive to Google and other search engines. Through value driven content, appropriate formatting, search term focused data and page speed optimisation, we’ll have you climbing the ranks in no time.
How do I know I’ll like my website?
Initially, you’ll be consulted on what style you’d like it to be overall and we’ll go from there. If you’re interested in our branding package then we’ll work direct with our designers to discuss colour palettes too. When we reach delivery time, you’ll be given unlimited revisions to ensure that you’re completely happy with your site.
What will my website include?
That is entirely up to you. We work on a bespoke, case by case basis. If you’re after a simple, one page, “extension to your business card” style site then we can deliver that. Alternatively, if you’d like a site with hundreds of different pages of content, that’s fine by us too!
We’re happy to work to deliver eCommerce platforms and specialise in WooCommerce as part of WordPress sites.
All sites that we create also include base SEO as standard, free stock imagery (although your own imagery is often far better suited), and all website copy with your sign off. That’s what makes us unique compared to other “design and deliver” style agencies.
We’ll also happily install Google Analytics and Search Console for your site to allow you to track its progress. We can, of course, monitor this monthly through our SEO subscriptions.
What do you mean by content?
Content means the materials that your users can access on your site. That might be the words you have that explain what you do, it might be a series of photos or videos, it could even be an infographic.
