Rapid Web sponsor Chasewater

By Ashley Peake 16th September 2008

We're proud to have co-sponsored this year's Tony and Ryan Birch Memorial Event at Chasewater. It was a great day full of fun and frolics to commemorate the lives of avid Chasewater wakeboarders Tony and Ryan who were tragically killed in a plane crash last year. Given that Ryan was an avid, and extremely talented wakeboarder, it seemed only fair that the day should be all about the art. We had competitions, trophies, thrills and spills – and t...

Karting madness

By Ashley Peake 1st September 2008

If you've never been karting before and are wondering what it's all about, then listen closely. It's not about having fun. It's not about taking part. It's not about teamwork. It's about raw, pedal to the metal, all-out warfare. At least that's how we look at it.  We recently met up with one of our clients, 8Ball for a head-to-head competition at Cannon Raceway in Wolverhampton and it wasn't a pretty sight. You'd think that when client and agenc...

Keeping transparent with SEO

By Ashley Peake 16th August 2008

There are literally thousands of SEO companies out there. We're all saying the same thing. We'll get you to the top of the search engines. In fact that's nigh on impossible to guarantee, although some would make the claim. What really gets results is keeping your site on the first page of search directories, and as near to the top as possible. We don't rely on quick-hit pay-per-click campaigns that can cost a bundle for very little benefit, inste...

By Ashley Peake 29th February 2008

We're used to the new year rush. It always happens. I think it may be that businesses come back from their Christmas holidays feeling slightly guilty about not spending all of their marketing budget... Well, maybe that's not how it happens, but this year has started so crazily that we've only just got round to updating our own blog. We've had a record number of new clients walking through the doors here at St. Alban's House, and it doesn't seem ...

The Christmas card that will not go away

By Ashley Peake 14th December 2007

We thought long and hard about what to do with this year's Christmas card. We did the whole Santa thing. We thought about how to use Rudolph to best comedic effect. Then we started thinking about those really boring cards you get at Christmas - You know the one; it comes from your aunt's wife's husband's daughter in law's tap partner who you once met at that wedding. It'll have that dreary picture of the nuclear family in front of the fire, sippi...
