Umbraco 8 is better than Wordpress (and easier to use)
Three things we always go through at the start of any website project
1. A truly great brief
Whichever type of accommodation website design you are going for we will go through a detailed brief with you which then creates the scope of the project. This includes what your project goals are, which influences you like, what you are trying to achieve more of (reservations, inquiries, phone calls or followers for example), what your timeline is, how your software fits in, how you will track success and what other digital marketing services are required, which can be provided by us or another agency.
2. Website user stories
The easiest way to achieve success is to focus on user stories. If you know that guests are searching for villas for eight people with wifi, that’s a useful user story. That journey needs to be easy to follow for them. If your website users are seeking a PDF for their corporate review of apartment housing providers that’s really useful to know. We help you capture these in an easy to use format – “my name is client and I need a new website, because my direct reservations are down year on year”.
3. what, why, how, where & who
This is standard and for accommodation and hotel website design, this means what type of hotel or accommodation. Go into more detail – such as consistencies in rooms, or experience all guests receive. Create a content deck to highlight reasons to book. It also means why the accommodation exists, as in the purpose and how it’s different – your story. Plus where you are located, travel, location, area. Get this right and delivering the content will be much easier.
