Web Design, Development & SEO Service
Web Conceptions was involved with creating and launching PrimeStar's first website back in 2012. At the time, the website was a fresh new approach in web development, offering a dynamic way in searching for properties, as well as extensive information about the Cyprus real estate market.
Since then, version one of the website was very successful in boosting the company's brand exposure in the market, with year-on-year significant website traffic, together with driving new client interest, both locally in Cyprus, as well as internationally. Investment in a new website proved more than worthy, as the return was evident.
During this period, Web Conceptions provided ongoing support and infrastructure updates, as well as consultation. Part of this involved monitoring the website's traffic and offering direction on best way forward. What was most clear in this analysis, was the amount of traffic generated from social media channels, particularly Facebook – mainly due to the excellent proactive work from the PrimeStar team in generating a buzz and utilising Facebook and their networks to drive activity. The website also ranked very highly in most major search terms and phrases, but then SEO seemed to drop off slightly on account of many new competitors hitting hard.
Another vital trend revealed in the analysis was that a huge bulk of the traffic was on a mobile device. As such, it was imperative that the website became mobile friendly; fully responsive to any device.
PrimeStar and Web Conceptions got together and began barnstorming for the creation of this new website, and essentially online re-branding campaign. The idea was to create a new website that met the demands of these new Internet trends, with a fresh new design, modern navigation logic, and rich in new content and SEO aspects. At the same time, ensuring some sort of continuity in branding, so as to maintain the strength of the company's excellent customer service record, as well as existing client's familiarity with the website's 'style' and info.
