    Liam Jacobi – a South Yorkshire artist based in Sheffield – now has a series of 5 paintings on display at our kitchen showroom Sheffield. The paintings can be viewed and purchased by any one of our customers.

    Liam specializes in the commercial side of art and design; and has done work across a number of varying business platforms. His previous clients have included Chaobaby Thai Banquet and Players Bar; evidencing the versatility that he is able to establish successfully through his work: ‘I’ve known Kieron (at Traditional Furniture) for a while; and he was really keen to help bring my work to more people in Sheffield.’ he said. ‘We both felt the paintings would work well with the bespoke kitchens produced by Traditional Furniture. I’ve done lots of commercial work; as well as producing muriels and feature walls for residential clients.’

    On Permanent Display

    The initial stages of the partnership have seen Liam produce a series of 5 paintings which portray iconic figures from history through a unique spray-painted style. The partnership that we now have with Liam means that if you choose us to produce one of our fantastic bespoke kitchens for you; you will resultantly receive one of Liam’s paintings –which typically retail for three-hundred pounds – for free.

    We’re delighted to bring this offer to our customers; and are convinced that new audiences will be successfully obtained for Liam in the process. Most importantly; we think that this unique opportunity evidences our dedication towards bringing unique ideas to our customers.

    Match Your Painting to Your New Kitchens Sheffield

    Following on from the initial series currently on display; Liam is now producing another 5 paintings. This time; they will portray iconic British images – including Big Ben and the Queen – through a quirky style of painting: ‘For the British theme there’s going to be images produced in a stencil style; including a postage stamp. The colour scheme will use appropriate tones of blues and reds,’ Liam said.

    We will work with you as the customer to ensure that you gain access to the kitchen of your dreams. We combine the careful sourcing of materials with our decades of experience to leave you with a product that delivers only the highest levels of quality and satisfaction.

        social media management  in sheffieldSince holding our very first search engine optimisation and social media workshops last week, we’ve been thrilled to receive some fantastic testimonials from those who attended.

        “Thanks very much for the information I gathered at the social media review last week, I must say I came along with the usual reservations that you have about whether the whole thing might be very ‘techy and geekified’ and not relevant to our market, but it was brilliant.

        Excellent practical advice that was superbly delivered and will be a benefit to me in my day to day work. I really got a great amount out of the day. The training was excellent; I would highly recommend Seven Creative to others.

        The SEO and social media review was informative and most importantly relevant, with plenty of information given. Any business that did not take you up on this fantastic social media review is really missing a trick, now all I have to do is get off my backside and put your wonderful advice into action!”

        Brain Drury, Blue Funk Hypnosis

        “Thankyou for inviting me along to one your internet marketing seminars, it was very enjoyable and informative, and done in  such an informal way that I’m sure put everyone who attended at ease, whether computer literate or not.

        After listening to your team it soon became apparent, not only how much opportunity social media can offer companies in gaining new business, but also how well Seven Creative understands these markets and how to use them to your clients’ advantage.

        I would recommend anyone to take advantage of your future workshops, as it won’t cost them anything to do so and will surely help them understand where social media fits into business and how it can help them drive more traffic towards their business.”

        Simon Platt, Utility Warehouse Authorised Distributer

        Don’t forget, we’ll keep you posted on future social media and search engine optimisation workshops in Sheffield – watch this space!

            Thursday 7th February marked an important date in the Seven Creative calendar. We held our very first search engine optimisation and social media workshops at The Workstation in Sheffield!

            SEO workshop at the showroom sheffieldIt was a pleasure to help lots of new people and some familiar faces get to grips with Search Engine Optimisation and Social Media. With a full day of 30 minute slots, we certainly had our work cut out for us!

            The staff at Seven Creative spent the day helping local business people learn more about using the internet to boost their businesses. We are proud to say that the event was a huge success and we’ve received some very positive feedback.

            Simon Platt, a utility broker from Sheffield, said “It’s not often you get any kind of advise nowadays without having to delve deep! I really liked their approach.”

            Karen Bird of Kurly Bird Event Management attended the workshop with her sister Sarah Green from Fable, the Sheffield based Epilepsy charity. Karen said, “Both Sarah and I came away with lots of ideas and found the time really productive.”

            Among the many visitors that dropped in throughout the day was Daryl Williams, founder of GlassBox Photography.  Daryl said, “It was a really helpful session. I’ve come away with plenty to think about and the skills to be able to make changes to my website to win the war against Google!”

            We were really kept on our toes as a wide variety of different businesses came through the door. Joy Harrison of Murphy’s, a company specialising in natural products made from essential oils and herbs for horses and riders, filled our last slot of the day. Joy said “It was so nice to be pointed in the right direction. I love working on my website and teaching myself marketing, but it sometimes feel like it’s an awful lot to do. I really appreciate Seven Creative’s help!”

            We will be holding regular workshops throughout the year on a variety of topics including search engine optimisation, social media and blogging, and will keep you posted regarding dates and times here on the blog, our Facebook page and via our email newsletters. We also offer social media management packages and SEO packages, which are perfect for those who don’t have the time to do it themselves.

                          BNI Notable Networker badge awarded to Clair Day of Seven Creative web design

                          leave a comment

                          Be Sociable, Share!

                            Our very own Clair Day of Seven Creative web design Sheffield has been awarded the Notable Networker blue badge in recognition of her achievements in the BNI group ‘Flyers’.

                            Clair was awarded the badge by BNI Director Consultant Nick Sievewright for her contribution to the Sheffield based BNI group. She is the Chapter Director of Sheffield ‘Flyers’ and joint 5th in the traffic light league table for the whole of the Yorkshire region. This position in the league table is an achievement in itself as it reflects Clair’s attendance, punctuality, visitors brought, and amount of testimonials and referrals given.

                            The Notable Networker blue badge is a great achievement for Clair and the ‘Flyers’ group. Understandably Clair is over the moon. “I’m very proud of my blue badge” says Clair.

                            “I don’t like doing things by halves,” she continues. “Getting referrals, bringing visitors; I put everything into it because that’s the best way to get the most out of BNI.”

                            BNI Director Consultant Nick Sievewright says, “I presented Clair Day of Seven Creative with a Blue BNI Badge in recognition of her outstanding contribution to her group BNI Flyers. The success of Sheffield ‘Flyers’ is a testament to Clair’s commitment and hard work. She lives up to every expectation that BNI has of its members.”

                            BNI groups comprise local business people with only one representative from each trade or profession in a group. These groups meet on a regular basis and the members pass business to each other.

                            Networking requires commitment and the most successful BNI groups are made up of people who are committed to helping one another through networking. And Clair’s blue badge recognises just that; her commitment to her group.

                            Sheffield ‘Flyers’ meetings are held at Beauchief Golf Course on Abbey Lane, Sheffield at 7am on a Tuesday morning.  If you are a small business and can handle more work, get in touch with Clair, and she’ll happily invite you as a visitor. To add your name to the guest list, please call Seven Creative on 0114 383 0711.

                                Did you know that we can design, write and send your email newsletters?

                                Our email marketing system allows you to send branded and beautiful correspondence from as little as 1p per recipient.  Email marketing is a really cost-effective way of talking to customers and potential customers.

                                And, because the cost is so low, it means you can not just email once, but many, many times over the course of the year, helping you to develop your customer relationships.

                                You can include anything you like in your newsletter; lastest news from your business, special offers, or new products. Anything at all that you think your customers would find interesting or need to know!

                                Your email newsletter can include links to your website too. This enables your customers and potential customers to access your products and services at the click of a mouse.

                                We also have access to detailed reports enabling us to monitor how many people have opened the newsletter, where they are and whether or not they have clicked on the links. It’s a fantastic way of measuring the effects of your email marketing campaign!

                                 

                                 

                                 

                                 

                                 

                                 

                                 

                                 

                                 

                                 

                                We have recently sent out an email newsletter on behalf of Chesterfield based dog kennels Dunston Lodge. Not only is it branded, we’ve sent it to everyone on their mailing list. Richard Harrington, owner of Dunston Lodge said: “We’re really happy with the service. The newsletter looks fab, and people have even been clicking through to the online booking section of our website too.”

                                “It’s generated business for us, and has let our customers know that we’re keeping in touch. We’ve also had people click through to our Facebook page, and it’s nice to know everyone is getting our latest news delivered straight to their inbox,” says Richard.

                                    Here at Seven Creative we believe in doing a good job for our customers.

                                    One of the things we don’t tend to shout about, however, is our search engine optimisation activity. When we build a site, it wouldn’t really be fair for us to not build in search engine optimisation features, as once you have at least a basic understanding of optimising websites for organic listing, it’s quite quick to do.

                                    We really enjoy seeing website suddenly rocket in the search engine rankings after we’ve had a bit of a tinker with it. And seeing a rise in website visitors is equally satisfying, as we know then that we’re really having a positive effect on our customers businesses.

                                    After monitoring the analytics results for some of our recent jobs, and being very happy with the results, we felt it was only right to share these success stories. So here are some of the recent site visitor increases for the websites we’ve been working on:

                                     

                                    Seven Creative Blog – Recent increase in visitors 36.64%

                                    Clean Sheet Computing – Visitors up by 2,200% (Two thousand, two hundred)log – Recent increase in visitors 36.64%

                                        The new Moscar Kennels and Cattery website is now live!

                                        The new owners understandably wanted to show off the kennels and make sure everyone knows what a great job they do of looking after pets.

                                        Seven Creative’s Chris Day said, ‘I really like the colour scheme for the website, its bright and fresh, and the pictures are fun too. The gallery page is a great feature as prospective customers can see the inside of the kennels and cattery, and see how well kept it is. And the comments on the testimonials page speak for themselves!’

                                        The website not only looks great, it’s easy to use too, and tells the customer everything they need to know about the kennels and services. Each bit of information is contained in a clear and easy to read coloured box, so it takes seconds to find the information customers need.

                                        Moscar kennels and Cattery is a family run business and the site has been home to a boarding facility for over 70 years. Moscar Pet Services is located in gorgeous countryside, with specially designed facilities and fully trained staff. They make sure you feel completely happy leaving your pet with them by making sure all animals on site are vaccinated, providing 24 hour access to a vet, and fully insuring all pets.

                                        No wonder the customers are happy.
