Angie Meiklejohn is an Intimacy Coach, Sexological Bodyworker and Transpersonal Guide. She wanted a site that would combine aspects of her professional practice with telling her personal story. And she was on a deadline, with the documentary film Angie about to screen as part of the NZ International Film Festival and a growing amount of media attention. We rose to the challenge.
Angie had an existing website which she had created with Wix, but she no longer had access to update it and her focus had changed. She had some clear ideas about what was important to her in a website - especially as she works in an often-misunderstood industry, but was unsure what was possible on the technical side. She wanted her site to be informational as well as a means to get clients. She also wanted some help with social media and ideas for increasing visibility.
Andi met with Angie to discuss her needs. We talked about what she wanted from a site and what we could help her with, and she showed us some example sites from other people in her industry which she liked the design of.
After our initial meeting, we confirmed a proposal with Angie, and assisted her in finding a domain name and web hosting. As she had a few different design ideas we made some mockups of the front page of her website to help her make a decision. Using her choice of design, written content and photos, we put together a simple but effective website that met her needs.
Because we used WordPress for Angie's site, we were able to give her guidance to edit the content herself; the interface is straightforward enough even for those who've never used WordPress before. We included a blog - which she's currently writing content for - and a contact form.
We advised Angie to start with one type of social media, and consider adding more as she became more comfortable. She set up a Facebook page and we connected it to her site so her blog posts are automatically posted on Facebook. We also added functionality to improve her Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), and set up Google Analytics so we could see who was visiting her site, and look at ways to increase or better target the audience.
Here are some screenshots of the final site:
