Redesign Proposal
Redesign of Marlborough Trading
(Excerpt from proposal pitch email)

there are some (entirley fixable) flaws in your current web presence, which are:


issue:
marlboroughtrading.com is still up and running, although you are operating under the domain name
marlboroughtrading.co.uk, which in turn is actually the edward james oak website.
... messy.

solution:
the marlboroughtrading.com contact phone number doesn't work, so the site should be taken down,
or the number changed to the edward james phone number. a better option would be to setup
a redirection for marlboroughtrading.com, which auto-routes users to the edward james oak site.

a small piece of messaging on edward james oak explaining that you also operate(d) under the name
marlboroughtrading.com/co.uk would help orientate users, and preempt any doubts the users
might pickup from the sitename/companyname mismatch.

in terms of SEM (Search Engine Managment), Google penalizes sites that don't "make sense", and
by not setting up a redirection for marlboroughtrading.com, you are also squandering that potential
traffic.


question:
why not use edwardjamesoak.co.uk as the domain? would solve a load of the above issues.
then, all traffic to marlboroughtrading.com/co.uk could be routed to edwardjamesoak.co.uk...

the domain edwardjamesoak.co.uk is registered to (I assume) you - its reg'd to an N22 address -

Registrant:
Hardwoodflooring4you

Registrant type:
UK Limited Company, (Company number: 111211331)

Registrant's address:
196 High Road
London
London
N22 8HH
United Kingdom



if there is an issue using the above domain name, then a variant is available -
edwardjames-oak.co.uk

I appreciate you are experiencing growth regardless, but think it could be misguided
to ignore the details that the above issues raise ...

if I can be of service in the above, or any other digital-related aspect, then please
do get in touch.
