The Challenge

The Committee felt their previous website was "outdated and too busy" and it was difficult to make changes to the website. This resulted in a website that was a poor reflection of the Committee's great brand showcasing old (and out of date) content.

The old website was not responsive, loaded slowly, and was difficult for visitors to navigate. These were key reasons why their website visitation was poor and engagement on the website disappointing.

With a newly appointed Executive Officer and Administration Officer the Committee were seeking a site that was "fresh and professional", embedded content from their social channels, and showcased all their events in an easy to navigate manner.

The Solution

Regional Business Toolkit provided the Committee for Greater Shepparton with a entirely new website, built from the ground up on WordPress.

Highlights include:

  • A bespoke visual design to match their existing printed collateral.
  • A custom event calendar showing all member, board and community events that the Committee are hosting or partnering on.
  • Embedded feed from their Facebook Page that is styled complimentary to their website.
  • Login requirement to access all Board documents
  • Provision of a visual editor (BeaverBuilder) to enable simple editing by Committee staff.

In the client's own words...

When we first met you we were very impressed with your knowledge and professionalism. We also heard about you from another company that had used your services. We definitely gained a better understanding of how a website works and updated knowledge about what new technology is out there to simplify the ongoing management of our website. I would recommend Regional Business Toolkit to anyone who is wanting to upgrade or redesign their website, or who would like to understand more about a website and how it works. - Deanne Armstrong, Executive Assistant.
