Manawatu, Wanganui and Marton Master Painter Ernie Earnshaw is high on the first page in Manawatu according to the all-powerful Google search engine, thanks to the Painter & Decorator team at Morrison McDougall.
“Ernie and I went to the Master Painters trade show in Palmerston North specifically looking for the Painter & Decorator team, who were advertising cost-effective website writing, photography and hosting,” Lucretia Earnshaw said.
“We’re just a small painting contract business and we didn’t want to spend much money producing a website, but our work had fallen and we knew enough to know that we needed to get online and make our services available for people using Google to find a painter in the Manawatu Wanganui area.”
Lucretia said she and Ernie met Painter & Decorator editor Iain Morrison at the show and came to Wellington to meet other members of the website production and online team.
“We told them what we wanted, we agreed a price and left them to do their work. We knew that it was important for us to come up high in the Google rankings and we asked them to optimise our new site.
“We didn’t give them much to go on and Willy Morrison did a great job. They stuck to the brief, provided us with an initial proof of the pages and we made a few little changes before it went live,” Lucretia said.
“It was really interesting watching our website climb to Google’s number one position when you search for painters Manawatu,” she said. “These days people don’t pick up the phone book, but we’ve now got people looking at our site and the services we offer, our testimonials from satisfied clients and examples of our work.“
Lucretia said she was totally satisfied with the website, the price and the service provided by Morrison McDougall.
