MEMBERS NEWS - A New Website Boosts Business.

11 Dec 2014

In the spring of 2014, Southern Entrepreneur members The Hampshire School of Hypnotherapy and IT & Marketing firm MQM Interactive, both based in south Hampshire, joined forces and developed a strategy to raise the School’s profile and grow the number of activities and students.

MQM Interactive has been developing and building online solutions for many businesses and organisations across the UK for the last 16 years. Their marketing and online expertise has helped many businesses raise their online profile and develop their business.

Work started with the development of a new website for the School providing a clear overview of its courses, events and CPD activities for existing hypnotherapists. The site will meet the needs of the schools’ increasing amount of enquiries, activities, students and profile.

The launch of the new website coincided with the introduction of a new 3-week long course suitable for hypnotherapists from all over the country and a range of online video training courses. This ensures that students can study more efficiently at the school or from the comfort of their home.

Lorraine Gleeson, Hypnotherapy Trainer, founder of the School and author of ‘How to be a Hypnotherapist’ is very pleased with the new site and new opportunities it offers. She comments: ‘As we attract more and more enquiries and students from all over the UK, it is important for us to raise our standard and profile. We can easily update the site and add news items and trainees can even stream a training course and learn long-distance. Working with Mark has made this possible.’  The information is illustrated by articles from founder Lorraine Gleeson, ‘A Day in the Life of a Hypnotherapist’.

The site, developed by Mark Woodroof, Marketing & E-Business Coach at MQM Interactive Limited says "Even small businesses can take advantage of new exciting technologies such as the delivery of online video training courses at an affordable price - e-commerce and mobile services such as these are no longer restricted to the big players with tens of thousands of pounds to build fancy online systems".

Since the new site, Mark and Lorraine are working on raising the profile of the Hampshire School of Hypnotherapy and introducing new marketing activities.


Since the introduction of the new site and marketing activities the School’s number of students and enquiries has tripled ensuring a steady growth for the School.
