[Rollover image to see the site after work by Jamie McGhee]

Role: Website Designer / Developer

Brief: A multi-staged project, taking on the hosting of an existing site, enhancing it's design and search engine visibility and then making it more dynamic with a content manageable system.

Action: The transfer of the hosting was a very quick process, that brought the control of host and domain name all into one convenient place for the client. Initial style changes were made to the site, keeping the structure much the same but enhancing the look of the site considerably. Additional pages were added including video content to bring the site more up to date and inline with competitor sites. All of this and the inclusion of more search engine friendly content and background keywords enhanced the sites visibility on the major search engines. The site template and content was then brought into a JOOMLA database system were it is now ready for further updating and enhancing.

Results: The client was very happy with the quick management and ease of hosting transfer. Although the initial design changes were mostly superficial edits to the style sheets and the adding of video content, the client was stunned with the difference. Search engine enhancements increased the 1 or 2 visitors a day to the site to an average of 15, which pleased the client very much. As has the enhanced ability of the CMS, which has now allowed the client to more readily adapt the text and content on his site.
