This was an existing website with a single product page. Originally the business focus was on a specific product. However the time came to include the entire manufacturing range.
Additionally a new design was required. Something fresh, easy to navigate and for wholesalers to put bulk enquiries through.
- The existing theme was updated and completely re-designed. A good theme has many design functions that allow the designer to created almost any look and feel. So although I used the same theme, the front-end design is completely new.
- An SSL certificate was linked to the website. The means the website is now secure and is served up with https and Chrome shows the “secure” padlock in the address bar.
- New plugins – old, unused and out-of-date plugins were removed and replaced with new plugins. Additional security and tracking plugins were added.
- New functionality converted products into catalogue mode and a wholesale enquiry form linked to each product making it easy for customers to enquire about bulk purchases.
An in-depth and personalised handover document was created including all logins, passwords, links to theme, plugins and tutorials for the new version of the website.
