WEB DESIGN & BUILD PROJECT
Spencer Becks is an Estate Agency selling properties in Portugal. The brief was to create a modern, clean design in WordPress that could be maintained easily by the owner. Since the majority of Spencer Becks clients are from the UK, France, Germany and the Netherlands, it was important that the site had multi-language functionality. It was also important to the owner that she would be able to add area guides and other useful information and articles in the form of a blog.
PROJECT FEATURE – XML DATA FEEDS
Most Estate Agencies list their properties on portal websites such as Zoopla or A Place in the Sun, as well as on their own websites. This is done via an XML Data Feed, meaning that the client only needs to load properties in one location, on her own website, and these are then automatically sent to the portals of her choice.
PROJECT FEATURE – MULTI LANGUAGE
There are a number of language plugins available in WordPress, some of which are free, but we opted for the market leader plugin WPML, since this has the best translation management capabilities. Translations can easily be updated for every page and post, without the need to have multiple versions of the page in the backend, meaning that the unchangeable content of the page, such as the layout and images, are only created once.
From day one Victoria was professional, helpful, went above and beyond in ensuring our website provided what we needed in the format we needed while making it easy for us to use but more importantly for the clients visiting the site to use.
She provided invaluable advice and suggestions to improve and make our site and business better and that has continued beyond the site being launched. Her communication from day one was beyond compare.
Absolutely first class service, I cannot recommend highly enough. Valerie Becks
