Up North launches new website to support growth plans

Award-winning PR, marketing and communications agency Up North Communications has launched a new website to supports its growth strategy.

The North East-based agency which provides public relations, marketing and communications advice and services to clients in the public, private and third sectors, has launched the new site after a string of new business wins and increasing number of enquiries for its services.

The new site at www.upnorthcommunications.co.uk was developed by web-design agency, Urban River after the two agencies worked in collaboration to successfully deliver a new website on behalf of one of their housing-sector clients.

The new parallex website includes improved functionality, navigation and design making it easier for users to access a full range of services. It also includes improved search engine optimisation.

The organisation received up to 40% grant funding towards development costs by enterprise agency, NBSL.

Craig Downs, managing director of Up North Communications commented:

“As part of our growth strategy, we felt that we needed to improve the functionality and user experience of our website. After a number of regional and national award wins last year, we have noticed a significant increase in the number of enquiries for our services so we felt it was necessary to refresh the look and feel of our website which we know is the first port of call for many new enquiries.

“The new site has been designed to support our future plans and provides visitors with a much-improved user experience.

“We have enjoyed working with the team at Urban River again after successfully collaborating on another project and from a partner and client relationship, they have once again demonstrated their creativity, knowledge and experience when developing our new site.

“I’d also like to thank NBSL for grant funding which has contributed significantly towards our development costs. The process was flexible and extremely quick and easy to use – ideal for any SME’s in the North East looking for additional funding and support.”

Carl Buckley, managing director of Urban River, said:

“It was easy to work with Craig in creating a functional, modern and easy to manage website which will enable him to really focus on generating much greater online traffic and ultimately more business.”

Up North Communications has secured a number of new business wins in the sports, health, housing and construction sectors.
