Le Moulin de Chez Brandy – Gîtes in Limousin

I had already met Margaret and Stephen at their home (Chez Brandy) when I did some work on their computer network earlier in the year. They already had a web site, built and hosted on Webs. I am fairly safe mentioning a possible competitor since, this being the second Webs site I have replaced, I can safely say they are no competition. It was ok as far as it went but it looked dated and did not respond well to being viewed on mobile phones and functionally it could only do so much. Some time soon I will write a full blog post about why I use wordpress but not today.

Anyway Chez Brandy needed to renew their domain and a thoroughly refresh their web site. The actual Webs site was attractive enough and I was happy to be inspired by it. We discussed some ideas and Stephen sent me the original photographs and transferred a lot of the content from the existing site. Adding slideshows and galleries as well as more dynamic links between the pages made for a better user experience. The addition of more solid search engine optimisation and a google map makes for a better search presence. Refining the google calendar too allowed for each of the two gîtes to have their availability clearly displayed. A simple click on the calendar takes Margaret or Stephen to their own google calendar login for easy updating.

The design is totally responsive – shoing as attractively on smart phones, tablets and PCs. They now have a logo too designed together an nicely identifying their lovely gîtes to the holidaying public. As time goes on, there will be more photos which can be easily added just by emailing them to me as attachments to be optimised and uploaded by me that same day. The same goes for any special offers or tweaks to the existing content. Together with the site visit reports they get each week, Margaret and Stephen are very happy with their new beautiful web site. They found the whole development experience easy and trouble free, any problems or questions were handled deftly and almost immediately.

It’s a complicated world, the world of online selling. So I make it easy for you by using WooCommerce – the most popular shopping platform on the internet, by far. Used byover 3 million businesses worldwide, small and large.

The possibilities are boundless but I make it easy for you. We talk and figure out what you need – taxes, shipping, payment gateways plus all sorts of variations depending upon your specific products and business.  I will guide you through the options leading you to the most efficient and easy to use site for you and your customers.

The cost depends upon any specific extras you require. There is an initial extra for integration and implementation (usually around 50% on top of the site cost). There are also extra monthly licence costs for some of the add-ons. It is easy for these to accumulate, but I will guide you to what will work for your business at the most economical cost.
