CLEAN DESIGN ★ ONLINE STORE ★ CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM ★ SOCIAL MEDIA INTEGRATION ★ FEATURE RICH BLOG
Gill is is quite a remarkable person, not only is she a nutritional consultant, a Pilates instructor and a trained soprano. She is also an award winning author, a professional speaker, broadcaster, coach, tv presenter and mum of three! What she isn’t however, is a web developer. She has no knowledge of html, css or java (and quite rightly, she’s busy enough already). Therefore, she needed a website that not only looked great and was packed full of features, but crucially, was easy for her to manage and keep updated.
Her new site would also need to be able to sell products and services and integrate with popular platforms like Amazon, Facebook and Instagram. She also needed a way to display her TV show and podcast series in an episodic format as well as her nutritional blog. All these features needed to be integrated into one website, along with an events calendar and newsletter system.
A site that not only looks amazing but also does an excellent job of focusing Gill’s different specialities. The site’s home page acts as a summary of all the different elements of her brand whilst dedicated landing pages provide more information and calls to action for each specific product and service. Split across: Experiences, TV Show, Podcast and Wellness Blog - the site presents a clear path of navigation for the end user whilst still incorporating the different elements of Gill’s brand without causing confusion. On the homepage, the header section shows the latest and most important news, this allows Gill to focus attention to important events, products and services. The Media section displayed the latest entries in her blog, as well as the latest episodes of her show and podcast series - with clear calls to action to visit the landing pages of each. The calendar system serves 2 purposes; 1. Gill can load any events where she is speaking or attending, allowing her clients to see what she up to 2. Gill can also load her own events, workshops and experiences, allowing the end user to see what dates are available. Easy online ticketing also allows Gill to sell tickets directly on her website with no need for a 3rd party platform.
Easy to spread the word
One of the key features Gill requested was the ability to quickly and easily share her content across her social media channels. Like most entrepreneurs she has accounts on all the major platforms, including several business pages on Facebook. Sharing content to all of these destination by hand is tedious and she really didn’t want to start using another app or system in hope of automating it. We were especially happy to show Gill the social functionality of her website. she can share any post, event or product across all her social media channels, including posting to several Facebook pages at once, all with just one click.
The great thing about Gill’s website however is that she can quickly and easily expand into new services and products when she needs to. The site’s design carries over to any new pages she creates using the powerful CMS system. She can add products, pages, events, blogs and so much more. All with easy to use drag and drop functionality so no need for her to take that web development course after all.
