My latest web project was for Becky Supon of Pacific Ocean Properties in Poipu. Becky came to me with a clear example and description of the features that were important to her for her blog re-design (I love it when my clients have a clear picture of what they want!!!). And Becky wasn’t afraid to learn new things (she’s pretty tech savvy to begin with) so with a minimal amount of training she was able to do all the tasks necessary to add new listings, pages and posts in the user-friendly WordPress dashboard. She and I had a great time building the site together and the end result is what we feel is a beautiful and functional site.
Becky had started her blog using WordPress’ free software however it didn’t have the appeal or functionality she needed to promote her real estate listings and connect with her clients on social media sites like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc. Becky’s old blog was under the main domain of WordPress and wasn’t branded with its own unique URL so we started her project by migrating her existing blog to a dedicated WordPress host using her own domain BeckySupon.com. Then we migrated her email accounts to Google Apps where she can easily manage all of her accounts, contacts (and more) in one place. She also wanted to feature her real estate listings with large image galleries along with her blog content – in answer to that we built her a “super site” including a full featured website and blog.
