Getting user friendly with my website!

Having worked with information technology for some years then moving into my own business area, it appears I have shied away from this field! Now is the time to take back my skills and update my website – and try not to pester my web administrator too much! In doing this, I can ensure I have a personal slant on my information and can pass on my passion for healing and caring to my clients and their friends.

So far I have updated the treatments available at Holistic Therapy Stafford at Captain’s Den (always a good start)! The personal information is coming along, although I am not one to blow my own trumpet – more on I like to focus my energy on helping others… I will however have a photo taken with my uniform on!

Links to my Facebook page needs updating (awaiting my trusted web admin to do his wizardry on the icons!). Mean while, here is the updated link – FACEBOOK

Other business activities have ceased; Afternoon Tea and Treasure Chest. Thank you to all customers who used these services. (Just awaiting my Web Admin to update the link, so this title does not appear).

Thank you for your support, loyalty and custom. This is very much appreciated

Response from Captains Den to the survey results 2011

1, A village take away service can be arrange! As Captains Den bake to demand, we would need forward thinking orders! We certainly would love to cater for the needs of the village. I also feel this is related to workers lunch needs. Deliver to area of work can be arranged with prior arrangement.

Thank you for your continued support and excellent feedback

 

2, Thank you, Captains Den aim to maintain the reliability for customers, meet your special occasions (afternoon tea style) and quality of taste, texture and ingredients. The experiments will keep on coming!

The business is expanding, catering for the mind, body and soul; Holistic therapy at Captains Den!  So not only will you dietary orders be catered for, you can relax, rejuvenate and have your symptoms massaged away.

Also for those special treats; Treasures at Captains Den is coming….. 2012

 

3, Thank you, glad to hear you are all satisfied with the products. You describe what you would like and Captains Den will endeavour to bake, decorate and deliver to your specification and specifically design a buffet menu for you!

 

4, Promotions and new products are at present updated via an open group on Facebook. Captains Den is improving the updating of the website details and will launch new look pages in the new year 2012.

Two mentions of galettes and oatcakes!! Go for it, place your order, here at Captains Den, we are always open to new ideas. Just because you cannot see it on the menu, does not mean we don’t bake it!!!

Service; I take this means more availability. We bake to order, so place a regular order and we can deliver to your specification. Waste is one thing that is not accepted, so mass baking has not been entertained at present! Go ahead, place that regular order…

 

5, Thank you very much for considering recommending Captains Den to others.

 

6, Thank you for your orders and on going support.

7, Your experience was what was expected and somewhat better. I am glad to hear this! We at Captains Den, strive to high standards of hygiene and quality of product rather than quantity!

 

8, Captains Den prices have been based on individual baking to order with minimal costing on running the establishment! 2012 has seen an increase in some prices to reflect the time effort and expense of producing quality fresh items with the professional look.

 

9,  This is wonderful to hear; the product quality is somewhat 25% and better 50% than competitors… Thank you so much… Onward with the fresh baking….

 

10, Extremely happy to recommend Captains Den 75%…  Brilliant; onwards…. Keep spreading the word..

The beginning

Captains Den advertising started on a Facebook group page, this has archived now but here are a few entries saved:-

Launch

Hi folks,
With the 1st anniversary of dads passing and his endless support for my ventures; I thought it was only fitting to create a business name that incorporated the remembrance well. I am launching Captains Den as my business venture with aim to sell morning coffees, afternoon teas, sponge cakes, muffins, pasteries, chutneys, jams and fruit cakes.
With time, I will be adding more pictures to temp you toward placing an order for my products. Please order through Captains Den wall, my email or mobile number.
My end goal is to own my own coffee shop / tea rooms…. I have not decided where or when yet but will be working from home until the decision is made 🙂

Welcome to Captains Den…. I hope you enjoy my products
