About the Project:
Wave Adventure were already online when we contacted them, but they were hosted on wordpress.com. Whilst these free hosted website are brilliant to keep the costs down, they are usually littered with adverts which are making money for wordpress.com.
We were able to migrate Wave Adventure’s blog posts, images and information to a WordPress install on our hosting account and began to work on the design. Once the information was copied across we set up a Genesis install and went work on the layout and design of the landing page for the charity. Features we installed:
- WordPress Install
- Genesis Theme Setup and Design.
- Page Setup & Design
- HTML & CSS editing.
After a couple of days we were ready to show Graham from Wave Adventure the initial ideas and discuss any extra features that would be useful. Graham was happy with the layout, colour scheme and setup of the website, we were then able to work on the features we discussed and implemented the following features:
- Events Page which links with Facebook.
- Instagram Integration for photo gallery.
- Mailing list setup with Mailchimp.
- Facebook widget installation.
- Volunteer Info Page
After we had finished tweaking the website we set a date with Graham to get the website online where we could start to implement the SEO for Wave Adventure. The site went live on the 1st December and will be providing updates as to how the development went here. So far we have been implementing the SEO basics:
- Google Analytics
- Search Console Management
- Sitemap creation and submitted to Search Engines
Testimonial from Graham – Wave Adventure – Founder
“WAVE Adventure are a small, Bolton based charity offering healthy, adventurous activities to children, young people, adults & families who would otherwise not get such opportunities. We rely on grants to fund our activities and do not have income to spend on website design.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Dan at Bee Design Studio for creating and designing a fantastic new website for us, giving us his expert advice being so supportive and helpful. This support has been given completely free of charge and will undoubtedly help us to continue our charity work with the people of Bolton.
We would most certainly recommend Bee Design Studio to anyone wanting a very professional and bespoke website design. Thanks to Bee Design Studios from everyone at WAVE Adventure!!”
