Ecotec is a young, energetic and professional company combining over 35 years of experience in the building, joinery and plumbing trades.
Ecotec had a website build underway using WordPress’s self hosted solution (wordpress.com) but the resources to finish it off were limited. With the Kendal-based business changing and growing rapidly, it was felt that a new website would aid them in spreading the message about the variety of works and services they have on offer. The website that was partially finished had been progressed using a pre-built WordPress theme. Ecotec were understandably keen to keep the momentum and also to transfer any new site to their own domain name.
So as to get the site up and running quickly, we exported the content from the development site, set up a new instance of WordPress on our hosting platform and migrated over the theme and content, where we were able to use support hours to complete the site. This included a portfolio with a visually interesting grid gallery. On this project we felt pictures truly spoke louder than words with a vast number of images displaying Ecotec’s high quality work. We also spent the time to be sure that Ecotec were accurately represented on their Google Places account.
However, the greatest challenge was that with multiple domain names managed by multiple providers, we were keen to pull all of these into line and have them all point to the primary domain and managed in one location. Through a series of long ‘techy’ conversations we finally feel we have helped Ecotec bring their digital house into order.
