By | Marketing, Social Media, Uncategorized | No Comments

6 Months ago, we introduced you to our exciting free websites project – brand new for 2017, we’re giving away thousands of sites to small businesses who can benefit from a digital boost. After six months, we’ve been absolutely delighted by the response: our websites are flying out the door, and our designers are busier than they’ve ever been sorting out sites for all our newest clients.

We’ve also picked up some great coverage from the local press; cheers to the good folks over at In the Bay for this article: (we’re the Lancaster web agency…)!

We’re really glad that the news is getting out there, and with plenty of free websites still on offer, we’re grateful to IntheBay for helping us ensure that all you small businesses who could benefit from a free site get a chance to hear about our offer. Read the full article here.

Now, we wouldn’t want to put out an update about our latest campaign without celebrating the team that’s making it all possible: our Account Managers, our designers, SEO and social media execs. When you grab a free website from the JamRock team, these are the people who put their back into making it look great for you, and if you decide to get us involved on other aspects of your marketing, it’s this team of experts that will help to spread the word of your business far and wide. We love to welcome our clients into the offices so you can get a feel for how we work – so here’s a sneak peak of some of our talented & creative staff hard at work.

 

JC Drones – Great media coverage

By | Case Studies, Company News, Social Media, web design | No Comments

Meet Jack Cordingley – Drone expert located in Carnforth, constantly helping his local community through usage of technology.

So, a little bit of background; Jack, aged just 28, has been flying drones for five years, and recently set up his own business in March of this year, JC Drones (http://www.jcdrones.co.uk/) a company based around providing high quality photographic and ultra HD video packages to clients in need of aerial coverage.

Jack approached us here at JamRock design at the beginning of the year, and was one of the very first clients to take advantage of the free website campaign, he had just came out of the RAF and needed all the help he could get on setting up the online side of his new company. We implemented a fully functioning, fully responsive website for Jack, which has strong links to his social media. Jack decided to provide his own content for the site, and is now getting fantastic response from not only the website but his social media too.

Now meet Beth, Darren and Holly – a couple and their dog. Holly disappeared on the Abbeystead/Mallowdale Fell area near Lancaster, and after frantically searching for her with no results, put out a post on the Facebook group DroneSARForLostDogsUK – a community based around lost dogs in order to get the word out and find pets sooner.

Jack was tagged in the post by another member of the 200 strong group, and saw that the dog lost was near to where he lived. After getting in touch with Holly’s owners, Jack met with Darren at 1pm within the Abbeystead area.

Jack did several flights on his drone in order to look for Holly, and on the third try spotted her. Darren went running to chase her, and she was saved soon after.

Holly isn’t the only dog that Jack has helped – he also helped a man whos dog had gone AWOL on Coniston!

Jack is also in the process of looking to add a thermal imaging camera to his collection soon, which will assist in helping the RNLI to find missing people.
