Caroline Watts, Business Development and Marketing Director at Foot Anstey, said: “We know how important it is to have a user-friendly website which represents our brand and services we worked closely with Illustrate’s team to bolster our offering and make any experience on our website seamless. Illustrate’s expertise has enabled us to climb the rankings to first place and we’re delighted to be seeing the results.”

Speaking on the project, Scott Jones, founder of Illustrate Digital, said: “The importance of website performance, and specifically page speed, is something an increasing number of legal businesses are now aware of – but it’s not easy to make improvements.

“To achieve these enhancements for Foot Anstey, we deployed months’ worth of site performance research carried out by our in-house WordPress experts. Each potential improvement would be tweaked and tested against the website’s unique setup to make sure there would be no loss of end-user experience whilst seeing some real gains in site speed and the all-important Core Web Vitals score provided by Google.

“We’re delighted with the results we’ve achieved so far and continue to help Foot Anstey optimise its performance, content management and website experience, to provide helpful, engaging content to its clients, customers and colleagues.”
