This Business Consultancy specialises in helping people to optimise the performance of their new enterprise - learning relevant skills, setting goals, and achieving planned growth. We enable entrepreneurs to establish a presence on the Internet with a well-designed website, then use Search Engine Optimisation to ensure that website becomes one of our "Websites That Work"!
Here's a few of the Client Websites that we have worked on, with some indication of what we've achieved with SEO:

March 2013: coming soon... UK Natural Therapies for those who want to save money by making their own.
Email for details.

The first website in a series that will be dedicated to products relating to dogs. This website is designed to promote GerOff! Dog Repellent Spray, which can be used for protection against dog attacks by joggers, ramblers, cyclists or any other dog walker who gets threatened by out-of-control dogs...
This website also provides valuable advice about the legal situation regarding dog control, dog attacks and your rights to protect yourself.

Stop Dog Attacks!
Protect yourself using GerOff! Dog Repellent Spray
made with 24 different natural essential oils
harmless to dogs, protects people

This website was competed on a Saturday, uploaded, and the domain name purchased - yet by Tuesday morning it was on the first page of Google UK search results for "dog repellent spray". This demonstrates how good on-page Search Engine Optimisation can achieve fast results!

May 2011: A free website for Transition Towns Faversham, the community group which works towards Faversham becoming self supporting; producing as much of its own resources as possible, including food and energy. Why? As a response to the twin problems of peak oil and climate change.

Coming soon... Our latest project - to offer a showcase for all our products and those of our clients:

Oct 2010, an ongoing project: The CAM Products Review (Under construction) ...
A guide to Complementary And Alternative Medical Products, offering guidance to surfers as to the medicinal properties of natural compounds, and providing a commercial platform for promoting products...

CONDITIONS
INDEX

Sept 2010, an ongoing project: The Medical Conditions Index
Designed to complement The Oil Profiles Project this website offers an index of natural healthcare products organised according to medical condition. All part of our ambition to provide information about
essential oils and products containing them without falling foul of the legislation to prevent this wherever such goods are sold. This site will offer no goods for sale, and will therefore not be limited by legislation that prohibits making medicinal claims for these products...

May 2010, an ongoing project: The Oil Profiles Project (dot co.uk):
Working with other suppliers of essential oils and aromatherapy products we are developing a membership-only website to let customers know about the properties of these complementary therapy products. The site will offer no goods for sale, and will not even identify branded products, and will therefore not be limited by legislation that prohibits making medicinal claims for these products...

This developed into a specific portal for podiatry suppliers at The Oil Profiles Project (dot com)

THE OIL
PROFILES
PROJECT

April - May 2010:
We decide to take over the running of Caromatics Aromatherapy Supplies, renaming it Sunbird Oils and planning to re-vamp the whole business and re-establish the nationwide reputation of Common Scents 1994 - 2004.
We also decide to institute the Oil Profiles Project, by which an independent website will enable ALL aromatherapy suppliers to market their goods properly...


BeastlyCards - One client's attempt to supplant Moonpig.com, those sickly sweet purveyors of saccharin greeting cards with a range of cards that have a little bit more 'edge'. Cards that tell people what you really think of them!
So, from a standing start in January 2010, we are employing our best Search Engine Optimisation techniques to see if we can overtake the well established Moonpig.com with our own site Moonpigg.com, and get our site to the top of Google searches for 'Moonpig'! It will be an awesome achievement if we can do it - but the reward is that 600,000+ people per month search for 'Moonpig'...

Nov 2010 Update: our site now regularly appears on Page 1 of global Google searches for 'moonpig'! Number 9 with Google out of 80,900 results! A bit cheeky, but no-one has complained yet...

Dec 2010 Update: Moonpig theaten legal action unless we remove Moonpigg! We must be good to upset them that much!

Anyone completing a Wealth Dynamics Profile will, on completion, be directed to the Dynamic Networkers site to enable them to find appropriate partners for their business ideas.
(It is a basic tenet of Wealth Dynamics that everyone identify their own Personality Profile then team up with people with complementary skills rather than try to do everything themselves... )
Straight to the top of WORLD searches for "Dynamic Networkers" of course!

Our pages offer people 2 free downloadable PDF's about Wealth Dynamics, plus lots of imbedded videos of Roger's inspirational lectures, and links to buy either of his best-selling books, or to buy one of his formal Wealth Dynamics Profiles.

Faversham Restaurant

 

Faversham Restaurant - an exercise in Search Engine Optimisation to see whether we could get to the top of Google searches, then sell the website afterwards...
We were actually 2nd on WORLD searches for "Faversham Restaurant", though strangely the only website in front of us was another Sunbird website that has nothing to do with restaurants!
(Sadly, restaurants in Faversham have declined to buy the website, though 4 out of 12 have gone out of business instead...)

Hythe Holidays Cottage

 

Hythe Holidays - a glorious holiday cottage on the seafront at Hythe (Kent). The decision to transform a family's second home into a cottage suitable for holiday lets, and to operate as a profitable business, started with a request to Sunbird Management to supervise the project.
This was the second of the Sunbird websites to actually feature at the top of Google search engine rankings on the first day after being uploaded! It continues to be at the top of Google global searches for 'hythe holidays, or for 'holidays in hythe'.
We have continued to register the website with relevant (free) holiday websites, and the property now has a high occupancy rate with a growing number of regular, repeat international visitors from the USA and Europe as well as from across the UK.

Rainbowscopes - importers and suppliers of otoscopes.
Used by Thermo-Auricular Therapists when they treat clients with Ear Candles...

Slidee - an info website about silicone lubricants... We had developed a new silicone blend for 'personal use', modified it as a lubricant for computer cooling fans, so we cobbled together a quick website about silicone lubricants to advertise both products!
It doesn't increase sales for either product, but it does feature highly on Google SERPS, so it provides a useful site to provide links back to the FanLube site to support its own position as No 1 for "noisy computer fans".

Top

 

Noisy-Computer-Fans - *NEW* FanLube - Silicone Oil for lubricating noisy computer fans.
Don't throw away the computer - oil the fan! Easy!

A problem with a failing laptop fan on a Monday got our inventor out of bed at 1.30am on Tuesday morning. The idea for a completely novel product was so good that he had to act on it then!
The idea really was good; a genuinely new product. So by Thursday the product and pricing was decided, and we at Sunbird were writing the website.
When the website was uploaded next Monday, it featured at the top of Google rankings the next day!
The first online sales for the new product started straight away...
Problem > Solution > Product > Website > Sale : 10 days
Yes, it really can be that fast if it is a good product and a good website.

AboutYouEars - our first successful membership site, designed to supply paid Contact Pages for Thermo-Auricular Therapists. Supplying visitors with everything that they need to know about Ears, what goes wrong with them - and how to get treatment!
Lots of advice and treatment on tinnitus, sinusitis, catarrh, deafness, ear wax, and lots of other conditions, but focusing all visitors through to Contact Pages.

Thermo-Auricular Therapy - training for existing complementary therapists on the techniques of Hopi Ear Candle treatments and the use of an Otoscope.
Following examination of the ears with an the  treatment can be performed, if all is well. This involves the use of a specially made ‘candle'. When lit, the movement and energy of the flame sends tiny vibrations down the candle, which gently  massages the tympanic membrane. The tympanic membrane also known as the ear drum is the seal between the outer ear and  inner ear.  As the membrane is massaged excess pressure within the  inner ear is released.

The treatment is able to stimulate the ear , nose and throat , and the sinuses can  be relieved. This can be very helpful for people who suffer from pain in the ear when flying or diving. Many other physical & psychological benefits can also be gained, relief from tension build up, travel sickness, stress, and a reduction of wax build up.

The Truth About Tea Tree - a look at the politics that dictate why this very popular essential oil will never be licensed as a medicine - even though it can be used for athlete's foot, verrucas, headlice, and even MRSA !
Initially designed as our first AdSense site this has earnt a bit over the years, but we hadn't noticed until recently that it had crept up to No 8 on Google's global search results for "tea tree". So we're now redesigning it to direct potential customers via the Sunbird Shopping Mall to see if they want to actually buy teatree!

1994 - 2004 : Common Scents (Aromatherapy Supplies) - modestly promoted as 'the first aromatherapy supplier run by someone who actually knows what they are talking about'!

1997 - 2002 : Events Management - With Common Scents established with thousands of aromatherapy customers, and growing rapidly, a need for wider marketing prompted a series of Exhibitions of Complementary Therapies. At the Archbishops Palace in Maidstone, and in the St George's Centre in Chatham, therapists from the south-east met the public to explain their professional methods...

1992: Kent Rubbish
In the days before the Internet, this was a printed magazine for local businesses enabling them to advertise the waste products from their operations. What they had to pay to have removed could often be a treasure that other businesses would pay to have!
This concept is now being revived online for 2011 by Golden Membership!
