GDPR Will Effect Us All – It’s Coming Soon

 We like to keep things like-hearted here at Oxygen but we need to get serious.
The Law is changing!

It not only effects our business it will affect your business too! It’s not a Law that is just for those big corporations either we’re afraid.

We’ll try and do our best to make this clear to understand, it certainly gave us a sore head working it all out.

GDPR – Whats the Fuss All About?

If you use email marketing, send direct mail or make sales calls this will affect you! The law is changing what you can and cant do.

This all comes into play 25th May 2018 General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

It may be easy to say “I’ll worry about it next year”  The new GDPR law is a complex and extensive law. Heres some advice we’ve been able to put together that will help you comply with the new changes.

It’s easy to think you don’t collect data but if you’re using any tracking tools like Google Analytics on your website you are. This can include anything from individuals IP addresses or a simple contact form.

People have a right to know what personal information you’re storing about them and what data you might have.

Top 5 Marketing Tips For Business

Optimise SEO

Being page one of Google is most businesses goals. The reality is, it’s hard work and requires a lot of money and resources to stay on page one organically.

Google will send a potential customer to the most relevant sites for the searches performed. To trusted, user-friendly, well-optimised sites. The best starting point is to have a search engine friendly website with relevant structured content your customers will want to see.

Relevance is key – What would your customer be looking for?
Keywords – Identifying appropriate keywords
Performance – Are site speed slow, are all pages working without errors?
Security – Does your site look safe, do you have an SSL certificate?
User Experience – Is your site easy to navigate, mobile responsive?

 

Paid Search

Google paid adverts are a way of driving traffic instantly to your website.

Google Search, Google Display and Google Shopping cover all the areas you could possibly need to advertise your business via Google Adwords.

Adverts at the top, side and even bottom of Google Search are all paid adverts. They also do placement adverts on related Google sites, on the sites that are likely to be visited but your target audience.

Google adverts can be completely tailored to your company goals, with specific targets in mind. Pay-Per-Click adverts mean you

Good things happen when people get together! – Event the right way!

Most of us sell to other people. More than ever, we have to create experiences for our customers. To give them what they can’t get online.

Exhibitions are great for finding new customers and expo season starts in September. But why wait ‘til then?

The comfort zone, It’s a beautiful place. But nothing grows there.

If you want to get extraordinary results, you’ve got to do things out of the ordinary. Get out. Meet people!

The exhibition season is upon us. This is how to maximise your results from any exhibit you hold!

Make them come!

First things first. The invites. For an intimate event, mail something fancy. For a VIP look, your invites should match the experience. Opt for Opuleaf gold or silver foil or StarMarque spot gloss highlights to impress. For a larger event, leaflets inserted into the local paper or pushed through letterboxes will be appropriate.

Be a social butterfly. Multiply your message by posting the event on social media. Get people interested and build the buzz.

Create a bit of a spectacle!

We’re all a bit nosey. Make guests feel privileged to be invited and make passersby wonder what they’re missing out on.

Block out your windows with fabric and “closed for VIP event” posters. Stick a pair of flags either side of your door. Put some dramatic lighting outside. Turn up the tunes. Get them excited upon arrival.

Create a unique environment!

Standing out in a crowded market place – Zoom Recruitment

Zoom Recruitment is a recruitment agency based in Kent who had approached the team at Oxygen to help them develop a way to stand out from the crowd within the recruitment industry.

We helped zoom by rebranding their current logo and creating a new website for them with added functionality.

www.Zoomrecruitment.co.uk

The team at Oxygen helped develop and design a new mobile responsive website for Zoom with some unique features that give them a competitive edge in a crowded marketplace. Zoom needed something that would communicate and integrate with their existing systems and therefore communication was key to this process.

Zoom’s old site was unfortunately subject to a malicious hacking. As standard with the development of their new site, we provided them with additional security to ensure this doesn’t happen again. By installing software to run alongside the new site it added another level of security that helped to make the team at Zoom feel more protected against this level of exploitation in the future.

Job Boards:

The larger recruitment sites such as Reed and Monster are cluttered with recruitment agencies and employees pitching jobs to prospects.  This makes it difficult to stand out from the crowd as a recruitment agency due to the sheer amount of jobs being posted. Oxygen helped develop a job board that is personal to the jobs that zoom upload and provided this on their website.

The integrated job board means that clients trying to find a job using the Zoom Recruitment website will only be able to see the jobs that

New Leaf Solicitors

We were approached by New Leaf Solicitors to make some changes to their website which we created for them previously. They felt like it needed refreshing and tweaking to look up to date with the current industry trends!

Original Site:

Their previous site was working for them at the time. It met the industry standard having fixed width. Utilising the Revolution sliders at the top of the web page to create a carousel of images and text for the user to view or click through to the relevant section! It was a clear and concise site!

Issues highlighted with the old site:
