What does BBI stand for?

Although we now rarely spell it out in full, the “BBI” in BBI Brandboost stands for “Business to Business Internet.” When we launched in the mid-1990s this branding helped to define our B2B communications mission, namely to support businesses in presenting their product and service offers via the internet to target audiences in the business sector.

While we frequently have extended our remit to include online communications and marketing projects in other areas such as education and healthcare, the B2B mission remains at the core of our operations. Then as now, we also believe that the website should act as a pivotal hub for business communications.

We are still Business to Business Internet, trading as BBI Brandboost, but the online environment has changed beyond recognition since those early days when we were establishing ourselves as significant players in the marketplace. This agency has evolved with the changes in web technology and in some cases, such as with innovations to the DNN platform, we have been responsible for instigating developments to enhance user experience (UX).

BBI Brandboost offers technical expertise and creative digital marketing
Reveal skills and knowledge within the company team

Social Responsibility

When businesses get involved in non-commercial work, it can bring new perspectives to what they do and reveal skills and knowledge within the company team that might not be apparent in normal day-to-day activities. This may not be obviously good for business in terms of the bottom line, but it can be very good for the motivation and work satisfaction of businesspeople as well as providing support to worthwhile causes.

The words corporate social responsibility (CSR) bring to mind large companies determined to make huge reductions in their carbon footprint and establish praiseworthy ethical credentials through sponsorship and contributions to charity, education and the community. Being a small company, the scope of our ambitions in this area is relatively limited and we have invariably focused our efforts on local projects.

Offering services and sponsorship

BBI Brandboost has been established in High Wycombe for over 20 years and a number of our staff not only work here but live in the town or nearby. This is very helpful because, as well as having a genuine commitment to the High Wycombe community, we are also able to gain a lot of inside local knowledge.

For example, we are happy to offer free website design and build services for specific local good causes. The site we produced for www.danesfieldschool.bucks.sch.uk we believe captures the happy and positive atmosphere of this excellent coeducational primary school near Marlow, Bucks.

Our MD's children had been educated at Danesfield School so we know at first-hand what a great school it is. We received the school’s Heather Award as thanks for designing their website, which meant a great deal to us all.

In 2016, we were also involved with Marlow Football Club through sponsoring the Marlow Town U15 team by providing their smart yellow away strip embellished with our logo. Marlow FC is one of the oldest clubs in the country and was one of the original entrants to the first FA Cup competition in 1871/72.  BBI Brandboost will be eagerly following the fortunes of Marlow Town U15s and cheering them to victory!

Helping the local community
BBI Brandboost works with a number of businesses in the High Wycombe area

Commitment to community

BBI Brandboost works with a number of businesses in the High Wycombe area, both as clients and suppliers. Our involvement with business and the community was recently reinforced by our website design and build project for HWBIDCo.co.uk. The organisation of local businesses running the High Wycombe Business Improvement District (BID) provides an invaluable range of services and events dedicated to improving the commercial area of the town.

Commitment to the community includes ensuring our business is as eco-friendly as possible along its supply chain, including in the procurement of materials and the professional disposal of waste. As a small clean-tech company our impact on the environment will always be minimal, but we are conscientious in our approach to this issue. There are a huge number of inspirational quotes about how doing little things can combine to change and improve the bigger picture, but here are two of our favourites:

Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events.

Robert F Kennedy

In a gentle way, you can shake the world.

Frequently Asked questions

I have an agency that is designing our website, but I need it built. Can you provide this?

We have frequently been asked to build websites in collaboration with other web design agencies and outcomes have been very successful. Our long-standing technical expertise in web development, bringing about excellent navigation, fast page load times and successful website presentation on all mobile and desktop devices, can be helpful in complementing the creative talents of other website designers.

My budget for a new website is £1,000. Is that too small?

That’s no problem. For instance, you can choose from our excellent selection of off-the-shelf DNN templates to find a solution on which to build you a simple but good quality professional site. We have produced many websites for small businesses and organisations on low budgets and it’s incredible how good the results can be.

Do you provide websites that I can add pages and content to?

BBI Brandboost favours DNN (DotNetNuke) as the ideal platform for website development, offering exceptional flexibility, ease of administration and a range of exciting features. As a content management system (CMS), DNN allows you to easily amend and update your website.

Our DyNNamite DNN specialist division produces user-friendly Tutorial Videos that demonstrate just how simple it is to add functionality to a website. We can also provide individual DNN user training if required.

Do you have in-house capabilities?

BBI Brandboost has an in-house team of web designers, web developers, SEO experts, content strategists, copywriters and marketing specialists. This allows us to bring a range of capabilities to bear on any given project and provide a holistic approach to meeting client demands whenever required.

Our methods have proved successful and we have clients that have utilised our services for over 15 years, which in the internet world is more than a lifetime!

We have had problems with our current hosting providers, can you take it over?

A number of our clients past and present have experienced poor quality hosting provision. This left them with little or no support when any technical issues occurred

Our enterprise level managed hosting incorporates high security protection, accessibility, scalability and support. The solutions we offer are fully resilient with multiple layers of redundancy to ensure that your content is safe.

We can certainly take over your hosting and provide the high quality professional services and support your business deserves.

Which content management systems can you work with?

While our preferred and most frequently requested CMS option is DNN (DotNetNuke), we are also experienced in working with Concrete5, WordPress, TypO3 and custom CMS platforms. BBI Brandboost has been established as an internet services provider for over two decades and we have valuable insights about how to get the best performance from all CMS platforms.

If required, we are also happy to undertake individual CMS training to provide hands-on experience for your colleagues to become proficient in editing, populating and administering your website.

Can your SEO services get us high search page rankings?

Search engine optimisation is a key area of expertise at BBI Brandboost and we know that successful SEO requires both technical knowledge and strategic capabilities. PPC/AdWords can achieve immediate high rankings in Google under selected key search terms and this can be useful as an element in some campaigns. However, organic SEO carries significant testimonial value, demonstrating merit in the website content and functionality (e.g. mobile friendliness).

We are experts in progressively building the prominent positioning of client websites in search page rankings and in researching the key phrases used by target audiences to seek information and content.

Can you assist my business in improving its social media engagement?

We are involved with social media campaigns for clients on a daily basis using platforms such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Facebook and Instagram and can offer insights about which networks provide the best engagement potential for individual businesses.

Positive engagement with target audiences is built through providing excellent content and initiating mutually rewarding conversations. We do not believe that producing a daily barrage of automated Tweets gets you anywhere. Our social networking programmes are proactive, customised and based on genuine interaction.

Do you have experience in building e-commerce sites?

BBI Brandboost has been building and hosting e-commerce solutions for many years, both as standalone facilities or bolt-on functions for existing websites.

We favour Magento for its range of features and flexibility but are also experienced in working with other e-commerce platforms. The e-commerce solutions we develop are designed to be UX focused for target markets, structured with easy navigation for the buyer journey, responsively designed for desktop and mobile users, search engine optimised, scalable and easy to administer.

If you’re looking to sell off the page and need the right guidance, please give the BBI Brandboost team a call.

Do you focus only on B2B communications or can you handle consumer campaigns as well?

While BBI Brandboost is primarily a B2B web services and marketing agency, we can also offer the creative expertise and strategic experience to produce highly successful consumer marketing initiatives. We have also frequently been involved in projects that have both B2B and B2C elements. Our capabilities range from using multiple channels of communication to highly focused publicity and promotions.

We need content written for a magazine/newspaper/offline article, can you help?

PR and copywriting are key specialities of our agency. We have extensive experience in writing articles and releases for newspapers, consumer magazines, trade, technical and specialist media. This expertise extends to online content, which is important since most publications have a presence on the internet and current and archived articles can have a major SEO benefit.

We are also well aware of the best methods of approach to editors and journalists in negotiating content, placement and scheduling.

We want a brochure designed. Can BBI Brandboost help?

BBI Brandboost was launched in 1995 as the web development operation of a traditional marketing agency established in the early 1980s. This has provided us with an extensive background experience in designing both online and print brochures.

We are proficient at meeting branding and corporate style guidelines, creating content, sourcing imagery and can if requested carry a project through from start to finish, ensuring that any outsourced suppliers produce on schedule and on budget.

Can we use some of your content on our site?

This question has mainly come up in relation to articles from our Latest News pages. In principle BBI Brandboost is happy to provide information freely to help other businesses, organisations and researchers. However, like any company we need to protect our branding and copyright against misuse, so please contact us to discuss your requirement.
