Northampton Dog Walker

There were two main requirements for this project. Firstly it was important to have an attractive design that would give an excellent first impression to anyone visiting the website. The second requirement was to try and get the website to rank on page 1 of Google for the main keyphrases within 3 months of going live. 

Both aims were achieved and now Northampton Dog Walker is getting new clients via the website on a regular basis.
