Freshlinx Web Design did an excellent job turning our existing basic wordpress blog into an exciting, professional looking website…
Everything we asked for was achieved with the minimum of fuss and lots of helpful suggestions were offered whenever we were unsure of which way to go with either design or functionality. We now trust Freshlinks with the hosting and maintenance of the site, giving the added benefit of excellent security. Our website is now doing what it should do and making us money.
As an emerging dance music label it was imperative that we chose a designer with not just the technical ability to create a functional and responsive site, but also the vision to take our design ethos and implement it within the site.
Our brief was to build a vibrant and engaging platform from which we could sell both music downloads and physical products (t’shirts etc. ) and also promote our artists/releases/events.
It had to:
– incorporate an e-commerce solution which allows the user to preview audio before buying.
– utilize various social media feeds.
– be simple and intuitive to use for the customer.
– have a high presence in google and other search engines.
As ‘hands on kinda guys’ it was also important for us to be able to update products in the shop, artist profiles and pics, images and links on the front page slider, and the news section ourselves. Lee from freshlinx not only talked us through how to do these things via email/phone, but also embedded tutorial videos so we could go over anything we might forget – this has been an invaluable inclusion.
The Freshlinx team have been more than a pleasure to work with, from the initial consultation stage right through to the finished product and on through aftercare. They were able to translate technical nous into terms we could easily understand, and offered advice on how to build on and improve the site and how we use it. The fact we were able to arrange face to face consultations was a major plus for our peace of mind.
I initially met with Lee from FWD in February 09 to discuss how to revamp Kemnal’s website and create a site accessible to students, parents, staff and visitors. Although I had an idea about the site’s content, Lee’s technical knowledge was indispensable in order to problem solve creatively and advise me on good practice…
I was concerned about being able to manage the website internally but Lee designed an easy accessible admin page that I use on a regular basis. I can upload photos within minutes using flickr and in the event of adverse weather, I can update the website as early as I need to – from any computer. This way, the website is always up to date and as a school this is an extremely valuable tool to communicate with the community.
KTC’s website is still growing and evolving and knowing that I can contact Lee for assistance is reassuring. Lee is efficient, reliable and dedicated and I would highly recommend his services to any other school. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me: [email protected]
