KDM events

AN OPTIMISED CONTENT MANAGEMENT
SYSTEM
FOR AN AWARD WINNING EVENTS COMPANY

OUR BRIEF

We set out to create a beautifully designed site, with SEO in mind.

KDM Events’ key priority was to rank number one for a range of key search terms and locations, however, they had been unable to achieve this previously due the nature of their old site.

We focused on creating a seamless customer journey throughout the new site, to maximise user experience and create the perfect foundation for the site to be optimised from the ground up.

CHALLENGES

1
Corporate website with a fun feel A professional site that still reflected the brand’s personality was required
2
Splitting services into two Team building and conference management separated for easy website navigation
3
Large amount of keywords Goal was to rank in different locations at the same time
4
Optimisation from the ground up To maximise the budget and drive price per click down

WHAT WE DELIVERED

We delivered a bespoke WordPress website which focused on providing a strong visual impact for users, with lots of playful user experience details to reflect KDM’s fun personality.

The user journey was split from the start, to create a streamlined experience, with strong calls to action located throughout the site. 

Additionally, popular activities and services were placed in prime positions, with the ability for users to book an event within just two clicks of the home page. 

A purpose built contact form was also developed, enabling customers to select multiple events and produce a bespoke team building experience.

BEHIND THE SCENES

As KDM’s site was designed to be content driven from the start, we utilised full WordPress content management.

This enabled us to include a number of bespoke additional functionalities and features during the build of the site, additionally, further features can be added at any point, to further elevate the site. 

Tags for event types were also included, allowing events to be refined by category eg. ‘food and drink events’, to ensure the best possible user experience when browsing the site’s catalogue of events. 

To further improve the user experience we optimised the site by using a content delivery network to improve the speed at which the site information could load.
