Amazing work and very easy to deal with, we have a wonderful site which matches our original concept. Would highly recommend Digital Davidson!
***** star review on Google from Pierson Austin, owner of Ibsen House
Our most recently launched WordPress website was the second we’d built for this client. The first, Ibsen House, was their portfolio site, for Tigharry Schoolhouse, the focus was their holiday let on North Uist in the Outer Hebrides.
The brief was straightforward. Whilst we did scope the option for the client to add booking functionality to the site, it was decided at this stage to manage all bookings via their Airbnb page, and manually amend their availability calendar (below).
As with Ibsen House, the client had a clear idea of how they wanted the site to look. During the scoping process we assessed the option of integrated this site into their portfolio site, but decided against. However, we were asked to pull through aspects of the template, including the colours and fonts, so there was a clear link between the two.
The client supplied some designs, photos and clear direction about what they were looking to achieve. We established the required functionality on the site, and how many page templates were required, and provided an estimate which when signed off, signaled the start of the build.
Unlike the majority of our site built to date, this was to be a custom build. The foundation for the site, like all the sites we’ve built in the last three years was the Genesis Framework.
Whilst the development was taking place we conducted some keyword research to establish the terms which the key pages should target. Once the client had shared the photos we were able to optimise them for the various terms ahead of uploading the text.
There followed several rounds of feedback until we had the site looking exactly as the client wanted on desktop and mobile.
We wrapped up the project by working through our pre-launch checklist which included linking the site up to Google Analytics and after launch verified the site with the Search Console and dutifully carried out our other checks. We’ll provide our usual three months of support after launch, and look forward to delivering our free SEO report after this period.
We enjoyed working with Pierson and Aruna to create this spectacular website and are delighted to add it to our Portfolio. We wish them all the success with this venture. By the looks of the early reviews coming in via their Airbnb page, the property appears to be very well-received.
