Simon and the team at Uniquely Nelson came to us looking to update their previous WordPress based business directory and online news system, Nelson Advantage, with several goals in mind:
- Combine the two into a single site for improved customer usability and improved ease of administration
- Rebuild the business directory around a more robust and cleaner system
- Redesign the site to better reflect the vibrant nature of Nelson as a destination and place to live
- Improve performance both from a viewers, site administration and search engines perspective
- Improve security
We rebuilt the site in WordPress using the brilliant GeoDirectory plug-in with customisations to provide exactly what was needed for the business directory. We then carefully configured the built in blog to provide bot news for Uniquely Nelson and a platform for Nelson Advantage.
This was wrapped up in a very clean and modern responsive web design framing the beautiful photography provided by the client, and an awesome video of the Nelson region provided by HotHouse; nice work guys!
We then launched the site on one of our specialised WordPress Cloud hosting solutions. A customised and highly tuned web hosting stack for WordPress providing security and performance.
… take a look.
