As hard as it is to believe, it’s five years since we opened the doors to Respectacle Company here in Manor Walk, Market Harborough. That was back in January 2016, and like any new business, we knew how important it was to have a digital presence. So we made the decision to invest in a website to showcase our business to both existing and new customers.

Back then we worked with local web design company PS Web Design to create a website that we believed gave a good insight into our passion for fabulous eyewear. The website was very well received by our customers and our business started to make its mark within the local area.

But five years in the digital space is a long time. In fact, if you want to stay credible and relevant, websites ideally need updating every few years. Even though we were publishing regular content onto the site by the way of monthly blogs, we felt the site itself was long overdue a makeover.

After five years, the website was looking a little tired and dated and we wanted a fresher, more modern look. Refreshing the website would help with our search engine rankings, and it also gave us an opportunity to enhance the customer experience when visiting the website. All these things are important for any business with an online presence. Having been so pleased with the work carried out by PS Web Design, we knew we wanted them to once again work their magic on our new and improved website. They have pulled everything together to design a website we are really proud of. This project also gave us the chance to work with other local creative small businesses. We commissioned Dorte Kjaerulff Photography to provide high-quality professional images and worked with Kate Anderson Copywriting on the website content. Kate is also responsible for overseeing our social media channels, so we knew we’d be in good hands.

Over the last few years Respectacle has evolved as a business and we have continued to grow and update our products and services. We’ve invested in new technology within the practice, sourced new eyewear collections, and worked with our partners to enable us to offer the newest technology in both clinical services and products we now offer. We see investing in our new website as an extension of our growth. It reflects how far we have come in the last five years and we’re very excited to see it finally go live. So please let us know what you think.

If you do need help with web design, photography or content writing, and social media management, we have no hesitation in recommending PS Web Design, Dorte, and Kate. Not only are they lovely people, but they really know their stuff.
