I had an unforeseen critical job turn up which required immediate action. I called in the Shared Marketing team and they simply delivered. Their ability to understand my vision and then translate that to a final product in a timely manner was exceptional.
Fantastic service and I can't believe the quality of our website. I have dealt with website builders before on 3 different websites and shared marketing blows them all out of the water. Happy to give my continued business to Craig and the team. Thanks again guys
I'm really happy with the new look and feel of the website, thanks so much to your team for understanding my requirements and making it such a smooth process.
The team at Shared Marketing were most attentive and attuned to our website requirements throughout the website development. Their response times to our many requests in the design process evidenced a team eager to deliver for their client.
I have had the best experience with shared marketing.I don’t know anything about technology and they have walked me through every step of the way as well as answering every little silly question without making me feel that I should know all the answers.My website/instagram/Facebook/google accounts have all been set up which i absolutely love at a very fair price.The team are friendly and knowledgeable.I would recommend anyone to Craig and the team at shared marketing.Stacey
Excellent service and have produced the most amazing website for me. I am now in the process of setting up two new business ventures. The advice and enthusiasm that Craig and his team give is second to none. If you are thinking of setting up a business a website is a must. I would highly recommend speaking with Shared Marketing at the start of any venture. Unlike many of the local so called web design companies Shared Marketing isnt a one man band. I have had problems resolved within minutes rather than days and an extra set of invoices. Amazing business with great ethics!
Craig and his team make doing business easy. Using Shared Marketing to help our business grow was a no brainer.
Great service, friendly and helpful. Craig and the team make a great effort to help your business
Great service from craig and the team, always a great help.
The Waitplate System
Shared Marketing was recommended to us because of their experience with start-up companies and assisting new innovations to get to market. They have been working with us from earlier days of our product development and have been extremely helpful in creating an engaging and credible brand. The designers listen to what we say and advise us in a way that makes sense.They have been a pleasure to work with and have provided everything we needed including brand and style guides, signage designs for our factory and vehicles, designing and supplying our marketing material, producing our video, iPhone App development, SEO and launching our website and online store, website and social media maintenance and the list goes on!We found their services good value and all inclusive and all involved were great to work with both creatively and for our business development.Kelly Arbuckle, Waitplate
Personal Training Runaway Bay
The Shared Marketing team has exceeded our expectations in every way. From rebranding, logo design, website development to printing, the Shared Marketing team has been very professional. Work has always been completed on time, usually faster than quoted and of the utmost quality. Communication, emails and phone, are always promptly responded to.Helping our company to become a more professionally recognised brand could not have been possible without the SM team. Thank you so much, we always receive compliments from clients about our professional image in the community
A massive thank you to the amazing team at Shared Marketing for giving our website an entire make over! Not only has the new website increased our profits but it has also opened a door to other digital opportunities allowing our customers to now order online via customised accounts and other extras we didn't even know existed.The team has such an extensive knowledge base and are always attending to our requests promptly. A special mention to Josh who even talks our lingo to the less IT savvy employees in the office.We would highly recommend Shared Marketing to all those around us and we are confident in the professionalism and care taken towards their clients, just like they did for us.Love from the Cherry Blooms team
First Aid Accident & Emergency
We started out with another, larger web design company only to find we were treated like a number. Shared really do care about their customers and get results.
First Aid Accident & Emergency
Shared marketing has helped our business go from a 1000 hit per month web site to over 2500 specific hits a month and triple our sales.Craig and the team are onto everything Web based and marketing that you need to help succeed. Thanks Shared
Fantastic team to work with and open to new ideas. Would recommend these guys (and girls) to anyone starting a new business and needing a website. They know their stuff! And Craig isn't too bad at kite-surfing either haha!
Let’s start from the beginning so we’re all on the same page.
What is HTTP?
HTTP stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol and is the old and not secure version in which information and data is shared while you are visiting a website. And as we all know, Google doesn’t like things that are old and not secure.
What does this mean in English?
HTTP is not a safe platform for people entering in their personal or financial details onto a website as it can potentially be accessed by a third party. HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure), is the most recent and secure protocol because it encrypts and protects information
Why does Google care if a website is using HTTP?
What Google is doing is softly letting everyone know that if your website is HTTP (as opposed to its far more secure and trustworthy big brother HTTPS), your website will be deemed a risk and visitors will be cautioned that the page is ‘not secure.’
Google is not going to risk information of its millions of users being compromised by referring them to what it sees as a ‘risky’ website.
In Google’s eyes, a website using HTTP and not HTTPS has the potential of making the user’s online experience very very bad. This can be done in several ways such as:
Being redirected to an imposter website. You may not even be aware that you have been redirected to a completely different website because you’re on a compromised network.
Stealing your information. HTTP connections are not encrypted thus allowing all financial and personal information entered onto the website to potentially be accessed by a malicious third party.
Being ‘watched’ by individuals and organisations who can easily access your information on a website with HTTP in addition to collecting information on the websites you are visiting and the data you are transferring.
Nothing right now, but as Google begins its roll out, it will be advising users of websites that are flagged as ‘unsecure’ which may turn people away from your website. In the first phase of Google’s strike against HTTP and people’s privacy being breached, it will be targeting specific pages on websites that are asking for credit card details before doing a blanket sweep of any page on any website using HTTP and not HTTPS.
Whilst Google have said this will not affect rankings, common sense does suggest if there’s a warning about a website not being secure, the traffic to that website is certainly not going to increase organically.
If your website is using HTTP on any or all pages, you should seriously consider making the switch over to HTTPS sooner rather than later. As we all know, you often only get one chance with new customers and if their first impression of your business is that your website is not secure, it can be extremely difficult to ever get them back.
Need to change over to HTTPS?
If your website starts with “ http:// “ in the web browser’s address bar, then contact our head office today so we can get your business’s (and your customer’s) information protected. And also keep the very important Mr. Google happy.
