CLIENT: Somewhere Unique
PROJECT COMPLETE: February 2017
Somewhere Unique is a luxury, couples accommodation property located at Wollombi in the NSW Hunter Valley, offering romantic getaways. Their existing website needed a refresh to promote their accommodation business, and sell inventory online. The website incorporates their online reservation system, an embedded YouTube clip, Social Media and TripAdvisor integration, a Blog and guest testimonials. Extensive keyword research was performed as part of the project, in order to improve SEO.
“As the owners of ‘Somewhere Unique’, a couples retreat in Hunter Valley Wine Country, we recently asked Melanie Morschel of ‘Rapid Websites’ to redesign our existing website. Melanie designed the original website approximately eight years ago. The original site has served us very well as our business is very successful, which is partially attributable to the website which was appealing, functional, and included a booking page. With advancements in technology and online trends, however, the site required a redesign to ensure it remained popular, relevant, and functional. Without hesitation we engaged Melanie and she provided us with a very affordable quotation and began work immediately following our approval. Before the redesign of the website, Melanie undertook a vital and very comprehensive key search term examination to improve the Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) of our website. Melanie then set about incorporating as much of the SEO data as possible into the actual text and design of the site. Throughout the process Melanie was completely accessible, day or night. She had a fantastic insight into what we needed and provided us with countless ideas and suggestions. For each of our suggestions Melanie meticulously researched the possibility and potential advantage until she completely understood the full implications. She was tireless in her explanations and her reasoning as to why certain ideas should or should not be implemented. Melanie completed the website within the timeframe quoted and the result completely exceeded our expectations. The new site is very functional, very modern, and incredible attractive. The following up service from Melanie was excellent as she provided us with various online guides and information to develop our ongoing understanding and, of course, she is available for ongoing consultation whenever needed. The new website has secured the successful future of the business and will only need periodic minor improvements for many years to come. We are confident that the website will bring us increased business, and at the same time, project the professional look and feel that we require for the business. We are very grateful for Melanie’s hard work, insightful ideas, and tireless commitment.”
