This week sees the launch of another redesign. This time we’ve revitalised the look of Blu Ripples, a counselling and consulting practice located in Kings Langley. We’ve worked hard to put together a complete new look for the logo, website and email campaigns – we feel this is a massive improvement, which gives a better first impression for the company. Check out the new look right here.

The website has gone from a light, simple look to a more professional, modern and sleek design, adding in a host of new features along the way, including a comprehensive blog and searching system, as well as the integration of social media. Blu Ripples now have a LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter account to help advertise their services and keep in touch with valued clients. It’s a handy, non-intrusive way to keep your brand in front of current and potential clients. In Blu Ripples’ case, they can give advice, link to interesting articles and studies, or get people to sign up to their monthly newsletter.

With more and more social media networks popping up every month (check out our blog on Google’s foray in to the market, Google+), it can be hard to keep track, so why not get in touch and discuss what options are available for you. Latest statistics are showing that social media is becoming more relevant to your online presence, and can now account for up to 20% of your Google rank. So it’s definitely a great idea to augment your website with Facebook pages, Twitter profiles and YouTube channels – it’s cheap, it’s easy and it’s a great way to build client relationships – if you aren’t already taking advantage of social media, now is the time to start.

Blu Ripples have already had great success with the launch of their new website, after only a few days they were contacted by radio station Mix 106.5! Blu Ripples founder Katherine had this to say:

Mix 106.5 just approached me to see if I was interested in doing a Career Counselling Assessment Segment on national radio – 700,000 listeners! They had viewed my website and were highly impressed. Never in a million years did I dare to dream so big – it has cemented so many things – one little call and I owe it to you and your team for building the site.

Katherine even brought in some celebratory drinks to show her appreciation (always a big hit with the Orion crew) and we’re looking forward to seeing the website continue to be a big success.
