for Hopwood UK

Project Scope

  • Bespoke design
  • WordPress CMS
  • Custom theme
  • Blog
  • Ecommerce
  • Social sharing

The Challenge

Hopwood UK had out-grown their existing website, which had grown in size as the business developed to the point where it was now clunky and difficult to navigate. Visitors to the website had trouble finding information on the different classes and some were even unable to view basic content as the website had been developed using flash.

The Hopwood UK team needed to be able to update the website regularly, but there was no Content Management System in place to update most of the content. This meant they were unable to add new classes, news and products which they wanted to promote.

They decided that an overhaul of the entire website was necessary, and therefore came to me for a complete redesign.

Project Goals

The main aim of the website is to increase brand awareness, generate more clients and promote and sell books, DVD’s and courses.

The Solution

The new website is easy to navigate, with a modern, clean and fresh design.

The website utilises WooCommerce – an ecommerce plugin for WordPress – allowing them to sell their books and DVDs online through their website. A simple system is in place to allow visitors to download a free self defence guide and registration details are kept so that the team are able to follow up and offer further help and advice.

WordPress was used as a CMS (Content Management System) to allow the Hopwood UK team to easily update and add to the content throughout the entire website.

I contacted Andrea after having been seriously let down by a Worcester computing company, which left me without a website for a month. Andrea came to the rescue and thankfully had a slot available to design and launch a new website for me.

I can highly recommend Andrea as your local website designer in Worcestershire – or beyond. Hugely talented, and with a real flair for her work, she has given my business the web presence it needs. Enquiries from potential clients are now flowing in from my website once again. Thank you so much Andrea.
