I first met Karen and Trish a couple of years ago when I attended the Connecting Rural Business Women Conference in Beechworth. The energy, commitment and enthusiasm they bring to organising this event is awe inspiring. The quality of the speakers and the workshops available is outstanding. I was delighted to be able to help them develop a site that will serve them in the years ahead.
They had an existing site that just wasn’t meeting their needs and they wanted to give themselves and the conference attendees a more up-to-date website that they could manage themselves.
- A wordpress site was the ideal vehicle to allow them to update the site with current years information regarding guest speakers, event sponsors, workshop presenters and all the latest developments via the blog.
- Being able to upload information packs, link to the event and ticketing options and having the ability to update the site quickly and easily were also high on their priority list.
- Integrating the site with social media (they have an active following on various channels) was really important to them and was highlighting their speakers, sponsors and workshops via a blog.
After Project Training
Offering some training / coaching on how to ‘drive’ their website was met with the same level of enthusiasm as they bring to all their collaborations. They have now taken control of the site which allows them to take full advantage of it’s pre-conference marketing power in the lead up to next years event.
