A showcase of my most recent works and projects.
Goal: Client needed a tour based website that was capable of taking online booking payments and confirming availability for multiple tours in real time.
Approach: I built them a site from the ground up using WordPress, WooCommerce, WooCommerce Bookings and added in the necessary customization to perform the key operations.
I also implemented an SEO strategy using on-page optimization to help them secure Google page rankings for many of their important keywords.
Result: They now have a fast loading and well optimized website and they are well positioned on Google page one with many of their important keywords. They receive numerous bookings online and have increased sales as a result.
Goal: To produce a website with several membership levels, recurring subscription payments and free trial accounts. Plus, an account area with stats and tools accessible from the front-end.
Approach: Made use of a responsive WordPress theme, WooCommerce and several membership and subscription features that I customized to get them all working in tandem.
I also customized the admin area of the theme and account pages to load from the front-end while keeping the same appearance for the entire user experience.
Result: A high tech site with tons of user functionality and a comprehensive membership and subscription base service.
Goal: Client needed a travel and tour site that could handle real time booking on multiple day tours and private extended tours in one session.
Approach: I used a premium WordPress theme, WooCommerce and the WooCommerce Booking extension along with some customizations to accomplish this.
The site was image heavy so I had to optimize image and slider positions and sizes carefully. This was done to achieve optimal page loading time, while still maintaining the sites aesthetic appeal.
Result: A great looking travel and tour site that allows for multiple tour bookings in real time. Visitors to the site have quick and easy access to well laid out tour details and beautiful photo galleries.
Goal: The WOTZ project required a fast loading and unique style blog for their website with a focus on social sharing options. They also required a direct to social media posting of the site blog posts with polling options.
Approach: A customized WordPress theme with social sharing and polling plugins. Full page fixed background to maintain site theme effect.
Twitter and Facebook API integration to have blog posts automatically published to those social networks in real time.
Result: A fun and interesting theme with interactive blog posts that allow for social media comments and social sharing all from the main site.
