Review

We absolutely love our new website and were so impressed at how easily Sophie/Sojo were able to turn our initial scribbles into the finished product. Sophie worked at a good pace for us, not rushing us to provide content and regularly updating us with her progress. Sophie is excellent at explaining all the technical stuff in a way that we could understand so that we were able to make informed decisions about the website’s capabilities and we really enjoyed our training session enabling us to edit the site ourselves going forward. I would also recommend Sojo hosting – our website is superfast with daily back ups and support when needed.

Printed Banners and Signs Redesign

Requirement:

Printed Banners and Signs (PBS) is an established business requiring reconfiguration and design of a website. The website needs to have a modern competitive design which appeals to both local businesses and larger corporates. The site should be maintainable by PBS, allowing the addition and revision of both text and images, and creation of additional pages – without necessarily requiring additional SoJo services for simple changes.

Solution:

SoJo has provided PBS with a fresh new WordPress web design which is easy to navigate and provides useful information to clients. The design shows users that PBS is a professional establishment highlighting its three key features and the full range of services as listed on their current website.

Website Organisation

The pages of this website were created by  SoJo and links to them will form a menu on the landing page and 5 main topic pages (Banners, Signs, Gallery, Contact Us. About Us). SoJo ensure permalinks are optimised for search engines such as Google and Bing. There are 6 core page layouts (landing page, product page, form, full width text, gallery and blog).

The landing page includes the following features; large image slider, twitter feed, quote calculator, logo and contact details, testimonials, 2 buttons (Quotes and Orders) and the 3 reasons to love us (Fast Quotes, Quality Guaranteed, Quick Turnaround).

The product pages  have the same header image as the landing page and containing vital information such as contact details and quote/order buttons. This header leads down into full width text and quote/order buttons, with products displayed in three columns below.

The About Us page will be a simple two column layout, full width page and includes images, bio’s and equipment details. The content for this website was written by PBS and supplied to SoJo for manipulation into the page layout. Form, Gallery and Blog pages were created using trusted plugins and adapted to fit the overall theme of the website. The Gallery was set up so that images are easy to add and SEO.

A sidebar or footer will be designed which will include the company logo, 2 small menu’s and the mailing list sign up. This footer is displayed at the bottom of every page of the site keeping the design consistent.

After an initial design meeting with Alice the concept of a picture based menu was discussed. With some research SoJo achieved  this in WordPress using the plugin UberMenu.

SoJo uses a number of researched, tested and trusted plugins to incorporate these features including Site Origin (page builder and widget bundle),Yoast SEO, Broken Link Checker, WP Update Notifier, Caldera Forms and Contact Form 7.
