Formed in 1982, PEME is an established, privately owned company, delivering specialist engineering services, with their headquarters based in Peterborough. Having worked with web2market on their brand, the website and a number of brochures PEME needed a new brochure for a new, different audience – prospective staff.
PEME’s Apprenticeship scheme
PEME sees its apprentices as fundamental to the long term development of the business and so needed a tool to promote apprenticeship schemes within the educational and recruitment sector. It was decided that a A4 multi leaf brochure which could be distributed, via third parties to young people looking to decide on their future, would be the most productive approach.
Based in Grantham, Lincolnshire, Today Interiors has been established for over 40 years and has gained a reputation for supplying beautiful and innovative Designer Wallpaper and Designer Fabric collections.
web2market previously designed and constructed the Today Interiors (TI) website, using the Magento platform. Using open source platforms such as Magento and WordPress does provide incredible value for money, but does require that the software is “maintained”. As a reminder of that, an email from web2market’s support team alerted TI to the possibility that its website could, without some additional updating and patching, be susceptible to recent vulnerabilities. TI asked web2market to secure the website on an ongoing basis.

Being visible within search engines is very important for most businesses these days, as it is a fantastic way to bring in new customers. The primary ways in which you can make the company’s website visible are Pay Per Click (PPC) and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). Of the two PPC is often seen as the “easier” route to the first page of Google as it only requires you to create a campaign and then bid for your position. SEO on the other hand takes a lot longer and is based upon a variety of criteria that Google uses to rank sites in order of their relevance to a search term, which even includes aspects such as the loading speed of your site! Many people ask whether it is worth running a PPC campaign when focusing on SEO, or vice versa.
