Fractional Property Deals Website

Florida Fractional Deals is an enterprise that is pioneering fractional ownership of properties in Florida, both as an investment as the market recovers and as a holiday base in one of the World’s most popular holiday destinations.

logoMr Allan Dick, the proprietor of Florida Fractional Deals, required a simple one page website plus advice on how to make it impress visitors, but on a very small budget.

He said “We needed to prove principle so the budget was tight for our chosen web developer as this was all upfront investment. Toucan Internet suggested the attractive rotating image gallery with a zoom facility, plus image scrollers further down the originally designed page and a personalised autoresponder to all enquirers.”

This budget website plus the quick logo “was exactly what my business required”, he added.

Simon Thomas of Toucan commented that whilst they typically cater for larger web development projects, smaller enterprises such as this are of interest as they can grow into bigger business with the right support.

Chinese Website Content for Local Coach Company

St Margarets Coach Hire of Stansted Abbotts has had their website marketed by Toucan Internet LLP and the marketing reports that came back showed a large number of visitors from mainland China.

Keen to capitalise on this, St Margarets chose to include an additional Home Page on their site in Chinese as written and proofed by Toucan Internet’s translators.

Simon Thomas of Toucan Internet says “All too often people forget the possible reach and influence of their website and if St Margarets Coach Hire start to capitalise on the large number of Chinese visitors to their site then the summer may well see them providing bespoke coach tours of the UK to many parties of visiting Chinese tourists”.

So Much More than Just a Stationery Store.

We all benefit from great suppliers and sometimes it’s appropriate to spread some good news.

Toucan Internet LLP has used the services of Brown & Tiney Stationers for over ten years. The differentiator between a good supplier and an excellent supplier is the exceptional customer service received when things don’t quite go to plan; as we all know the good times take care of themselves.

Routine dealings with Brown & Tiney are a pleasure as nothing is too much trouble, their personallogoised online ordering system genuinely saves time and their special “Hot Items” catalogue of the top 7,000 most popular stationery items gives consistent good value prices all year round – not just for limited special offer periods. Alan Brown, Managing Director of Brown and Tiney said “after we’ve spoken to a new business, 85% change their supply to us as we quantifiably save them money and invariable improve on service”.

Routinely Toucan needs items in a hurry, either for ourselves or as part of a client project and Brown & Tiney have always managed to pull the rabbit from the hat. Well done guys.

Toucan Internet LLP recommends Brown and Tiney as a quality supplier that shares the same customer service ethic as itself.

Dependable Internet Services Underpin Successful Answer Call Business

zoom-logoZoom Answer Call is celebrating its first successful decade in business, over eight years as  a client of Toucan Internet.

In 2002 Chella Hayes, CEO of  Zoom decided to rebrand the company’s logo, website and stationery and chose Toucan Internet to assist in this project. The resulting distinctive branding is still in use today, epitomising the quality of business call handling from Zoom.

Chella says “Good internet communications are essential to our entire operation and in this respect Toucan Internet has excelled, repeatedly surpassing expectations. We value Toucan’s personal and rapid response to issues as they arise. They routinely debug email problems, invariably such problems being caused by third party or client’s networks, which nonetheless prevent Zoom providing its clients with the first class service they expect”

We wish Zoom Answer Call a successful second decade.

For more details on how Zoom could help you business please see www.zoomuk.co.uk or email Chella at sales@zoomuk.co.uk

At Toucan Internet we’re looking for more businesses that want exceptionally high quality internet services and unparalleled support.

Leading Barristers’ Chambers chooses web partner

9-12 Bell Yard is a leading criminal barristers’ chambers in the City and they chose Toucan Internet as their web designers earlier this year. Apart from the main web projects, Toucan’s creative design team has been engaged in producing a number of items in various media for Chambers, including email campaigns, digital Christmas cards and a hand drawn website.

The annual Chambers’ party aboard HMS Belfast was a real success and Toucan designed and produced the  impressive corporate folders together with the event invitations for the night. These designs were based  upon a newly evolved logo icon taken from designs that had been created as part of the development work for the Chambers’ new website. 3_detail_21

A Chambers’ spokesman said “We are delighted with the creativity and support Toucan has brought to every project they have worked on so far.”

The folder and modified logo are designed to give great value in that they can be used on more than just one occasion. The generic chambers folder will double as a CD presentation folder for distribution of material such as course notes, whilst the modified dynamic glass effect logo will feature in the forthcoming website.

Simon Thomas, Partner of Toucan Internet said “This is a great example of how a brand identity can be effectively used across different media. Toucan’s strength is that we have all the resources required including creative designers, Flash developers, programmers, systems people and the team approach to make these projects a success for our clients”.

Web of Deceit

What to do if you become a victim of online fraud

Routine online shopping and banking transactions should not pose any problems for people using the Internet, however the World Wide Web has vast scope for criminality, and fraudsters have been quick to exploit the opportunities it provides.

Here are some of the risks:

  • Emails purporting to be from banks, credit card companies or other financial institutions such as PayPal, that direct you to fake websites where they try to extract essential security information from you, (known as Phishing)
    ADVICE: Never follow links in emails. Instead go to the official site and login as usual.
  • Emails, that contain attachments that carry a virus or Trojan payload.
    ADVICE: If you don’t know the sender, never open an attachment.
  • Websites that download tracking cookies, adware, Malware or viruses directly onto your computer.
    ADVICE: Install antivirus software that will check all sites you visit.
  • Transactions with strangers via Ebay that turn out to be fraudulent.
    ADVICE: Never, ever send money via Western Union or other transfer service. Never allow a buyer to pay more for an item than expected, and never send them the ‘change’, as their original payment will always bounce.

Always install good Anti virus, firewalls and anti-phishing software on your computers and activate email-scanning too.

If you think you have been de-frauded online, report it to your local police station. Essex police has a fraud department that will liaise on your behalf with the appropriate authorities and internet companies to try and bring the criminals to justice. This includes foreign forces and Interpol.

Ebay and PayPal also have their own dispute resolution services and offer some protection to their users.

Essex police, East Street, Saffron Walden, CB10 1LX 01376 556233
General Non-Emergency Number – 0300 333 4444 and ask for the person or department you require.

Toucan Internet at the Dentists

Nobody likes going to the dentist; or do they. Toucan Internet LLP seems to have found favour with progressive dentists looking for success online.

Welcome to Smile and Wellbeing

Welcome to Smile and Wellbeing

Smile & Wellbeing in Bishop’s Stortford was Toucan’s first success when charged with getting the site favoured by Google with top search terms “Dentist in Herts” and “Dentist in Bishops Stortford”. Entrepreneurial dentist Dr Bhavin Bhatt said “We had a lovely site that projected our practice well, but until we handed control of the website to Toucan, nobody was visiting. Since Toucan optimised the site we have a steady stream of visitors and new clients, primarily from these search terms. We are pleased with the results and as such have referred Toucan to other colleagues looking for good web partners”.

Hook Lane Dental Practice logo developed by Toucan Internet

Hook Lane Dental Practice logo developed by Toucan Internet

One such referral was Dr Kieron Khoorbhoor of Hook Lane Dental in Welling, Kent. This was a new practice and Toucan was pleased to get involved at an early stage and provide creative designs for the practice logo, business stationery, referral forms, and of course a rather unique website including a video of the practice.

See www.hooklanedental.co.uk




Northwood Orthodontics PracticeAnd just last week Dr Saba Qureshi’s Northwood Orthodontics website was launched. This site was designed to be in line with industry norms and project a friendly approachable practice that both parents and adults would feel comfortable using. The site is heavily optimised ready for search engine marketing and the domain name of www.orthodontics-london.co.uk hides no secret that we’re after some serious Google referrers.

Chartered Surveyors & Architects celebrate 30 years in business

Having achieved 30 years of successful business, both locally and nationally, Wilby & Burnett decided to review and update the company branding. Foremost in the minds of the partners was how to formulate an updated public image whilst remaining true to their existing and very successful branding. This new image was used in everything that meets and greets their clients including evolving the company logo, redesigning the stationery and of course establishing the practice website.

Having chosen Toucan Internet LLP to undertake the project, the logo and stationery design was the first stage. Once concluded the website design was addressed and, in a few “stepping stone” design concepts, a design was conceived that was true to the established branding. This projected the business as a professional, multi-disciplinary practice covering key areas of project management, architecture and surveying.

The website’s prime objective is to be a prestigious reference point to any possible client considering using the services of the practice. Partner Terry Wilby said “We’re very pleased with the published website. It projects well the professionalism of the business with key examples using Flash image sequences whilst showing us as an approachable business with whom most would like to work.”

A new website for a changed market place.

This year many of our customers have had great results from their websites as we’ve worked their sites harder for better returns against the back drop of shrinking markets.

For companies looking at innovative marketing methods we have also designed and produced many thousands of CD business cards.

We’ve been so focussed on our customers’ successes that we’ve neglected our own marketing.

Correcting this, we’ve completely reworked our main website to share with you some of the effective new ideas that we’ve adopted this year for giving our clients the edge online over their competition.

Please see http://www.toucanweb.co.uk.

It is more apparent than ever that businesses are turning more to their websites to affordably generate the lion’s share of sales opportunities over past, more traditional methods – a well optimised and managed site does give a strong return on investment.

We’ve also seen customers automate sections of their business by having us write web server based routines to manage work previously done by office personnel, thereby freeing staff for more profitable use of their time.

We are more than just a web design company to our clients – we are a cost effective extension to their business.

When visiting our website at www.toucanweb.co.uk you’ll also have the chance to receive
“Tips and Tricks for online success” for FREE and a chance to win an iPod.

If you have an idea for an online facility and want to sound us out, please call me as we’re always interested in new challenges.

Wishing you continued success,
