BRIEF: With so many websites being developed for clients lately, it was hard to find time to bring our band website into the world of responsiveness and to give it a design face-lift.
SOLUTION: For the long weekend (Queen’s Birthday) when most clients were out of town and all was quiet, we rolled up our pyjama sleeves and achieved a 24 hour upgrade.
OUTCOME: Our old website has been ranked #1 for ages for all our keywords and we have been getting heaps of band gigs from people who (presumably) do their searching from desktops and laptops. With the new website being responsive to different browser sizes and user-friendly to smart-phone users, we’ve opened up our audience to the 25% of everybody who now do their searching solely on tablets and smart-phones.
BRIEF:When Elly-Ann Pritchard sold the NZ Ceroc business and agreed to become the Auckland Central Ceroc franchisee she needed her own site and she needed it in a hurry. She also wanted the site to have the look of the Ceroc Championship site, be useful to her many Auckland Central clients, be recognisable as part of the NZ Ceroc network, and be a vehicle to attract wedding dance and ballroom dance business.
SOLUTION: With the blessing of the new franshisor, we created a new Dance Company website that featured Ceroc Auckland Central as the central service but also profiled Elly’s other dance services.
OUTCOME: A website that is proving useful to Elly’s existing clientelle and to newcomers to dance in Auckland.

Outcome: Mission more than accomplished.
