How we can help
Websites are at the heart of companies' strategic communications. Getting every aspect of a website right is vital to building your company’s reputation and reaching every one of your audiences. All aspects of designing and building a website need to be considered in order to capture your audience effectively on the web. The look and feel is important but also getting the right key messages in your copy, taking search engine optimisation techniques into account and creating logical information architecture are all essential. Only when all of the elements of a great website are brought together can you reach out successfully to your audience online.

Search Engine Optimisation
Make sure your website is found by the right people.
Tailored solutions that meet your SEO needs delivered by a team that understands how your stakeholders are searching the web. We use advanced SEO techniques, for desktop and mobile, to give your site the strength to succeed and the power to reach top positions.

An SEO Programme will ensure:

You can see and understand the way visitors behave on your website to help you grow your business. Improved content will increase in-bound links from other websites to improve search engine rankings and web traffic.

PR and reputation management
We listen to what’s being said about you on the web and across broader media and the sentiment that drives the conversation, we analyse issues that are relevant to your business and we respond and engage to build your reputation by making sure you are:

  • Heard, by creating opportunities to tell your story

  • Credible, by building belief in the story

  • Trusted, by helping sources for information tell the story in their own way

Then we monitor and report on trends and we use analytic tools to measure the quantity and quality of the traffic on your website or blog. Sciad has a highly experienced PR team able to plan the strategy and execute the plan

Social Media
Conversations and influence amongst peers is nothing new. This is especially true in healthcare and science, but social media gives companies the ability to:

  • Engage with their audiences in real time, building reputations for their company and their brands

  • Gauge conversations and the impact they are having

  • Responding quickly and effectively to manage potential difficulties before they become a crisis

We focus on creative, innovative and effective social media solutions that are tailored to the audiences who are relevant to your business, from patients and clinicians to scientists, investors and the media. From listening and monitoring to full social engagement, we will create and manage a strategy that works for your business.

Mobile marketing
It pays to have a mobile responsive site. Many mobile search users are looking for instant results, whether they are searching for a new cancer drug or looking to order an antibody. One thing that is central to use of a mobile or tablet is ease.

It is vital that mobile customers are able to navigate to the site they want quickly and to find content within the site. That’s why we believe every website should be optimised for mobile, giving users a much quicker route to contact you or to make a sale conversion. Sciad will happily advise you on your website and create some mobile landing pages for you.
