Learning a little about our client and their needs for their website

A glance at our client

Who they are and why they needed our help:

The goal of Guelph.org is to get the Community involved by submitting their business listing to be featured on the website.  The website is to be a list of all different types of businesses in the Guelph region so people visiting the area can find the best places to eat, drink, buy Internet, go shopping, hang out in a great park, find a historical landmark or whatever their hearts desire.  They will be able to explore the website and find just about anything with a few simple keystrokes.

It also gives local business a chance to advertise on the site – – get their names out there to a new audience.  Guelph.org is also a great support to the non-profit community, and any non-profit service, church, camp or park is able to list their service on the site at no charge.

      How we helped our client solve their problem!

      An area to Explore Listings

      Guelph.org wanted an area for users to be able to search for different businesses in their area.  We gave them 2 different ways to do this:

      1. On the Home Page, right in the header – – It not only allows users to look up local businesses, parks and other local places in their area it also allows them to look up events that are going on or up and coming in their area.
      2. There is also a separate “Explore Page” that allows users to search by using filters to search using further details: categories, area, and features – – and shows the results on a map.

      Submit Listings for Review

      It was important to allow potential business listings to securely submit their listing to us for review to be featured on the community website.  We put a call-to-action button to “Add Listing” in the navigation bar and fixed it to the top of the page so that it is always available to site visitors.  It was very important that the form be secure – – we went with two-digit verification.

      Fresh, Modern Web Design

      We created a fresh look for the Guelph.org Community website that not only looks good but also functions great.  This modern site performs well and has a quick response time.  We created the site to be Responsive – – which is extremely important with many users visiting sites on their mobile devices.  This way, no matter what device a user visits the site on it will look and function properly.

      Featured Listing

      We created an area to display the listings that are special and are being “Featured” on the site.  These listings will be the first listings seen by visitors on the site.

      Local Events

      We gave them a special area on the home page to highlight local events happening in the area.  This section also allows users to explore all events and gives local businesses the opportunity to submit an upcoming event for review.
