The Plough at Lupton needed us to create a modern website that reflected the venue and increase traffic and bookings through the website via Organic SEO. We designed and built a website from scratch, and wrapped around a content management system so that the client can easily amend content without having to get in touch with us every time a change is needed.
The Plough is a country pub with rooms just outside the Lake District. The new website needed to be fully responsive, adapting to all latest browsers and devices. The online experience now caters for everybody, rather than the previous site which only worked for desktop users.
Suzie Steel, Operations Manager was very pleased. "Our website smashes competitors website’s out of the park. We’ve had lots of comments about how good it is, how easy it is to navigate through and how beautiful it is. Our website has also improved the company and business as a whole because it’s much more streamline and look more professional because of it, and that is reflected in the expectation of the guests. So they come in and they spend more because we look more professional and it’s generally just that more ethically pleasing."
"The benefits of working with MadeByShape are that they really engross themselves in your brand and put that across in your website. They came and visited us and got what we were about and put that online, so it was really positive to get that personal aspect of the service. I think a website is really important to a business. It’s often the first stop for anybody who doesn’t know us. We especially have a lot of guests who come further afield, so this is their opportunity to see what we’re about, so it's really important."
"We found MadeByShape through a Google search of places through Manchester. We did visit MadeByShape studio, myself and my boss. It was very cool and it seemed like a lot of people knew exactly what they were doing.
We’d definitely work with MadeByShape again if we went back in time, really easy to talk to and deliver on ideas you didn’t even know you had. So I’d definitely recommend them."
