We have just launched the new website for Pebbles Cafe in Greystones. The website is just part of the overall online marketing campaign that Pebbles have embarked on.
Pebbles is situated in the Blacklion Retail park (where Lidl is). They have been open since September 2010 and while I don’t drink coffee, they do a lovely hot chocolate and their food is superb!
Based on a the latest wordpress platform, work on the site has included:
- Theme design (web design)
- Copy writing
- Social Media Integration
- Search Engine optimisation has begun too.
We are excited to have the site up and running on the same week that Pebbles Cafe becomes a Restaurant by night. Pebbles have built up a solid customer base with their breakfast and lunch menus. The new Bistro style restaurant menu is a natural progression for a cafe that has a reputation for good food and convivial surroundings.
The meshing of online and offline social experiences blurs the line between the web and a social experience like a cafe.
Pebbles Cafe have very much embraced the digital age. Free Wifi is available, and this makes joining in fun social media experiences like foursquare that much easier.
In the coming weeks there will be exclusive offers for foursquare users. Every page on the site has both twitter and facebook buttons, making sharing your experience of Pebbles extremely easy. People can also comment on the blog which is syndicated to Twitter and Facebook.
Why use WordPress for a site like Pebbles?
WordPress is a very stable, well supported content management system (CMS). It makes it easy for clients to update their own website with very little training. This cuts down on ongoing costs of having to get somebody to update your website for you.
It also reduces costs greatly by comparison to a bespoke CMS. It is tried and tested with regular updates.
Most importantly, WordPress sites tend to do well in the search engines.
As a social media platform WordPress is second to none. No matter what functionality you want there is a probably a plugin available.
Would a wordpress based site like Pebbles suit your business? Why not give me a call and discuss it. Here at Webshed there is a realisation that a website is much more than just a website. It needs to work for each individual client. I can talk about the web until the cows come home and am more than happy to give my advice and suggestions for a plan of action for your business.
