During the lockdowns this year we have been busier than ever, working hard to build strong online presences for our clients affected so that they were ready to attract and welcome visitors again once restrictions lifted.
One mammoth project completed during this time was a website redesign for Visit Dean Wye. The old website had become outdated, difficult to navigate and was unable to keep up with the DMO’s marketing and commercialisation needs. We chose Simpleview to work with on the redesign, one of the best known providers of destination websites worldwide and who were recommended by our friends at Visit Cheltenham, Visit Gloucester, Cotswolds Tourism and Visit Monmouthshire who all have websites built by Simpleview.
The new website went live at the end of October and we are thrilled with it. The work of a small dedicated team working alongside Simpleview, the desire for all of us was to build a website which better represented this stunning area that we are so passionate about promoting.
Easier to navigate, with brand new photography and copy throughout, fully mobile optimised and showcasing all that this wonderful area has to offer, it also has live accommodation availability for easy online booking, itinerary creation and a simple search facility so you can find exactly what you want quickly and easily. Our priorities, all of which were achieved, were:
- Improved user experience
- Simple navigation
- Businesses front and centre
- Mobile optimised
- Stunning visuals
- Engaging copy
- Lots of other great stuff!
A proud achievement for us… but a website is not a static product and we will be continuing to add more great content, visuals, articles and inspiring guides to the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley in the months to come.
