I recently ‘built’ a new website for Positively Pets, a dog and puppy training company based in Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne.
I say ‘built’ because this was very much a joint operation between me and Jenny, the owner of Positively Pets. Basically, I set up the skeleton for her, gave her some basic WordPress training, and then acted as a consultant whenever she got stuck.
This worked perfectly for Jenny – she had a very limited budget yet is very IT literate and always open to learning new stuff. It was a bit more of a challenge for me because I had to learn to let go of the reins, which is not my strong point.
The new site is a massive improvement on the old one, and it’s huge. It has all the information you need to book a training course, you can choose a course and then book online, and once you’ve booked you get access to the Members’ area where you can access a series of web courses, depending on which course you’ve booked on to.
Feedback from customers old and new has been excellent, bookings are up and admin time is down. And Jenny is now happily planning her next project!
