We strongly believe that local businesses should get involved with community projects and local charities wherever possible.  It is important to give a little back.  We focus on projects in our area to do with Music and Drama as well as supporting charities to do with mental health awareness when appropriate.

We are proud to announce that the Launton Village Players official website is now under construction.  The Players have been established for over 25 years and tirelessly raise money for charities through their Autumn Plays, Summer Shows and spectacularly ambitious and widely renowned Pantomimes.  It is only right that the group have a website befitting their reputation and so the work has started in earnest and we are thoroughly enjoying it!

For more information about the Players in the mean time visit their facebook page:

It is easy to get involved, remember that Trinity Camerata are always looking for sponsors too!

Bicester website enabling grants

Is your website responsive?

Responsive websites are designed to operate equally well on hand-held devices, such as phones or tablets, and laptops/desktops.

Cherwell District Council have setup a scheme for Bicester businesses to help fund the cost of either enabling an existing website to be viewed on a hand-held device, or a grant towards the cost of a new ‘enabled’ website.

At Alex Goodey Comunications, all of the websites we create are made with mobile devices in mind from the outset. We develop bespoke responsive themes that detect the type of device being used to browse the site and dynamically adjust the way the content is displayed to optimise it for that device.

If you would like to find out how easy it is to get your existing site modified or a new site created that can be viewed on a hand-held device, please email us now

Details of the CDC grant scheme can be found on this page, and the application form can be downloaded from here.

What Your Website Says About You

It’s all very well telling people about how good you may be when handing out those all important business cards  but potential clients can make a lot of assumptions based on what they see online.  If a site looks tired or amateurish, it could be more detrimental than useful.  It’s all about raising the profile and awareness of what you can offer. Make the site shine and you will shine.

It is a fact that a lick of paint will freshen up the most dated of rooms. With technology forever changing and updating, it is little wonder that things become out dated.

It’s not all bad.  With a little TLC, your tired, old website can be looking all spangly and new with a little help from us at Alex Goodey Communications.

There is no need to lose your hosting and domain name in the process of updating.  We simply move your site onto the latest web design software where the sky is the limit!

The most innovative of websites have a few tricks in common.  Mailing lists, virtual newsletters, blogs outlining your latest achievements and goals, exciting and bold photo galleries, animation and our personal favourites – video and audio sections.  In this competitive age of technology, the website is one of the most powerful mediums to get yourself and your business out there.   Would you use a service or book an act if their website looks shabby?

If your website looks and is professional, so does your business. Many people fall at the first hurdle by trying to create a site with no experience or vision.  A little investment goes along way with these things and a good website sorts the men from the boys!

We at Alex Goodey Communications guarantee a comprehensive service allowing you, the client to have as much input as you want at affordable prices with ongoing support be that producing news letters, blogging and other updates constantly needed for you to be on top of your game.

Take that first step and contact us directly for a free consultation!

New website launched

We are producing more and more WordPress websites for our clients, so we thought that it was about time that our website was updated to use WordPress too!…

Please bear with us as we work on the look and feel of our new site, but I am sure that you will agree it is a big improvement on the old one!
