Keeping to a similar topic as the last blog about a client in the food industry, we move on to our next client highlight. This one is a little closer to home for us, Kevin Webley a founding member of Ford Consultancy Group is based in Pershore but works worldwide as a specialist in food retail consultancy. Ford Consultancy group a are very knowledgeable group of consultants who have helped some big businesses open up new food and hospitality premises. Some notable clients are Fenwick in Newcastle, known as the ‘Harrods of the North’, Intercontinental Hotel Group and the Savoy hotel in London.
They have 3 main areas of work: Hotels, Restaurants/Bars/Cafes and Food Halls. They are more than happy to work on smaller projects such as a one-day consultation right through to international, group-wide development plans for global businesses. Kevin Webley says: “we understand the highs and lows of owning and running a business, having been there ourselves, so we can empathise with client’s situations and help provide practical and realistic solutions.”
We at Sharpmonkeys have been working on Ford Consultancy Groups SEO and have also helped them begin to run Google Ads.
We asked Kevin what it was like working with us, this is what he had to say: “having created our own website, we realised that whilst it looked the way we wanted it didn’t really get the traffic we were desiring so we needed some expert help to work on our SEO. John at Sharpmonkeys understood the problem and helped us devise a strategy to improve both the site’s content and also the online visibility. Our initial concerns that the process would be expensive and difficult were unfounded as the costs have been very reasonable and we are already beginning to see improvements in our site traffic and our ability to monitor and interpret that online activity.”
