Plaza Midwood’s existing website was usable, but did not serve their needs. The website was used as a business directory for the local businesses, as well as a place for the neighborhood association to publish content, events and other useful information.
I knew that they needed a custom solution built on WordPress that would allow local businesses to easily sign up and create paid business listings. This was essential to the website to help generate some revenue for the neighborhood association. This money would be used to help improve the website and visibility of the neighborhood and to help increase the awareness of the neighborhood to local Charlotteans and people visiting as well.
Extensive research was performed on similar websites to help understand exactly what would need to be done to accomplish all of the goals for the website.
Once the user experience was decided on, we needed to find the best way to break down the content, information and business directory so both visitors and businesses could easily navigate the website.
We were able to successfully launch the website to allow new and existing businesses to create their local listing profiles and promote their businesses. Plaza Midwood is engaged in an ongoing WordPress website care plan so that I can assist them moving forward with reaching their goals.
Hiring GK was by far one of the best business decision we’ve made!
We spoke with Grant and gave him our vision for the look and feel for our new website. From the get go we were impressed with his knowledge and experience. I personally couldn’t be happier with our website. Not only did he nail our vision, he made it better than we could’ve ever imagined. Also it was done in a timely fashion! Our site reflects our business and personality and doesn’t look or feel like just another “template” website.
Whenever we needed to make adjustments our changes or had questions with our website, GK took care of it. The customer service is top notch and it’s been a pleasure working with Grant and his team.
Since we have revamped our website with GKD we have seen a notable increase in online traffic. This was by far the easiest decision we ever made. We are still getting compliments on our website. As the owner of a DJ and Lighting company, our website is our business front. GKD ensured that our website matched the quality and service we provide everyday. There are a lot of choices out there for web services, GKD rises above the rest!
