Client: Dr. Tristen Wallace
Synopsis: Dr. Tristin Wallace is a Vancover, BC based Naturopath and Applied Kinesiologist. After 8-months of fits and starts with a local web designer, Doctor Wallace contacted Digital Strategy Works for a solution that would get her online as quickly as possible, yet make sure her web site would be easy to navigate and look beautiful. Because time was of the essence and there were cost concerns, DSW recommended using the Health & Beauty theme from OrganicThemes.com. The theme comes configured with a marquee for either images or video; a panel for introductory text; the ability to swap out a logo; the ability to add thumbnail images as creative for to delineate the site’s main sections; and drop-down navigation. It was the perfect solution for Dr. Wallace, so that she could learn the ins and outs of WordPress, while dreaming up a custom theme in the future.
In less than 72-hours:
- we installed and configured WordPress on Dr. Wallace’s hosting account at Godaddy.
- the appropriate php.ini file to ensure WordPress would function well on the server.
- acquired Health & Beauty theme from OrganicThemes.com.
- configured the theme in the admin control panel.
- assisted Dr. Wallace in plotting out the navigation and adding content.
- assisted Dr. Wallace in setting up the “testimonials” category to publish her patient’s testimonials to the home page slider.
- performed a bit of light graphic design to create a custom logo and custom images for placement throughout the web site.
- created SEO opportunities throughout the site by setting the permalinks and installing All-In-One-SEO.
- searched for and installed various plug-ins for form building, Google maps, ShareThis, spam control, newsletter, Twitter & Facebook, hiding posts, and even online scheduling of appointments.
- trained Dr. Wallace in how to publish with WordPress, create keywords and be an SEO-jedi master!
- we registered her site with GetClicky to track stats and installed a Google XML site map generator, to get her up to speed with Google, Bing, and Yahoo!
