I thought that I would carry out a short clients sites review to showcase some of my work.
It is interesting for me to reflect on my previous work and, ironically, building clients sites is not my core business!
I spend most of my time creating my own digital products and these are projects that have simply come my way through word-of-mouth.
Here are a selection of Clients Sites that I have recently worked on (in addition to building my own digital products):
This site has been set up to advertise Homestays around the world. It is based upon the Classipress Theme which is a bit involved to set up. Initially the owner is offering free advertising but it also has the capability of offering paid advertising. Entry to the site is through a squeeze page. Just needs some more listings in order to take off.
This is a small offline business offering landscaping services to businesses in the Thames Valley Area. It has a walk on video on the home page, a gallery and a video promo. This was built to a budget but the owner seems very pleased with it. You can view it at BusinessGardens.com.
Simple Pinterest Traffic Systems is a membership site product. The site infrastructure was created in about one hour including installation of WordPress, deployment of the membership script and page creation and site configuration. The owner of the site is also using my developers license of Easy Video Suite so that his video tutorials literally roll onto the page!
Wake Up To Health is a health-related website that is literally groaning with features including:
- Ecommerce shop
- Members Area
- Podcasting software
- High-end video player
- Live and automated webinars streamed direct from the site
- It is mobile responsive
- A marketing power-house – it is still under construction at the time of writing. The owner is now adding content.
Jumpstart4Youth is a charity website that is built on a premium theme. I struggled with poor quality graphics but overall it is a vast improvement on their previous site. It has a wizzy slider on the front page. This organisation does great community work in the Coventry area.
I met Emma Breeze through Rotary – got her started with her new website Embody Dance (built on the Thesis theme) and her business has gone from zero to being a huge success. She runs dance classes in the Nuneaton area. Just shows what youthful energy and drive can achieve. Very proud of her. I support her but she is creating most of the content herself now.
When I look at these sites, they are pretty diverse in nature but that’s what makes life interesting. However, I would probably make more money by specialising in a niche.
Overall I prefer to create my own websites for my own products because I find interruptions from clients with trivial queries often disrupts my workflow but I’m afraid that goes with the territory!
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this clients sites review!
