Let’s Build a Website – built this site together with the input from the owners, Brett and Tina from Kingsford in Sydney. They needed an information website with a few pages, some images of the sailing trips and a contact form.
Brett is a qualified sailor, who sails people to exotic places in the Asian Pacific. His main service is yacht deliveries, so the website is to encourage people to book their yacht deliveries and exotic sailing trips with Oceania Yacht Services.
Brett and Tina came to Lets’ build a Website from a referral (Slice of Life tours), with nothing but a logo and an idea. We designed the website together in 2 sessions (4 hours) with our 1 on 1 WordPress Training.
Again we used the Divi theme for its flexibility in layout. Click here to view – Divi by Elegant Themes.
What we covered in the course
- We set up the hosting and domain name with Quadra Hosting.
- Installed & configured WordPress.
We set up the following:
- Installed and set up the Divi WordPress theme.
- Built the unique home page layout.
- Brett supplied the beautiful photos from the trips he has completed.
- The home page images are from pexels.com – a great place to get royalty free images.
- Created the main menu.
- Added all the pages.
- It is a minimal website, which has the ability to add more content and features later.
- We created a gallery page of some images from Brett’s sailing trips, which he will keep adding to.
- And added a contact form.
Brett and Tina are still working on the site. But at least now they have an online presence, which is very important when you have a business.
Brett and Tina will come back for some more SEO/Google Training, so they can learn the best ways to get their website listed in Google on the first page.
This is crucial for all websites, to know at least the basics of SEO/Google to ensure they get traffic to the site.
The site looks great and we look forward to seeing the progress.
