I have recently been helping a local business convert their website. What they had before was just the basics and they were looking for something that was new and fresh. They were also interested in getting more business from customers locating their business from the web. Since I had just switched my own site over to a WordPress based site, I offered to help them. It has turned out to be a great learning experience for me and another door has opened in my array of ways I can assist my customers.
While the site created the feel of warmth, it wasn’t inviting. It also required the customer to click in order to find any information out regarding the business. The studio owner was wanting that step taken out for the customer.
The studio owner also felt the menu items were too wordy and just kind of ran across the page – Agreed!
Here is a picture of the site after!
This is the site after we converted it to a WordPress format.
Much warmer and when the customer is on the homepage, it is capturing them and giving them a brief idea of what they have to offer without forcing them to click on the menu.
We still have a little tweaking to finish up on, but we are getting there and have already found quite a strong turnaround with their analytic scores.
Check out the site for yourself. I would love to have your feedback!
