NEWPORT SMALL BUSINESS CASE STUDY 1
Newport Surf Club
I have been working with the Club management committee at Newport Surf Club since 2011 when I developed their first website. After completing their first website, I provided the relevant members with WordPress training so they could confidently self manage their website inhouse. In 2020, it came time to refresh the look and feel of that original website and overhaul the content.
Over the past decade, not only did the website design start to look a little outdated but the content and structure of the website had become congested and needed a general overhaul. Obsolete pages and functionality were deleted and new, relevant information added. The Club’s online e-commerce shop also got a revamp. In consultation with the Committee, quick links were added throughout the website to assist new and current members to quickly navigate through the website.
Work completed on this website upgrade project
- Website design upgrade: More contemporary website design. Improve the navigation structure and add quick links. Remove obsolete information. Add new content. Install and set up plugins needed for functionality, security, etc.
- E-commerce (WooCommerce) upgrade: Improve the design and functionality of the online shop.
- SEO : Undertake extensive keyword research and optimise areas of the website relying upon search engine ranking.
- Website speed optimisation : Optimise the website for fast download and load times.
- Events calendar: Upgrade the obsolete events calendar to a more contemporary version.

NEWPORT SMALL BUSINESS CASE STUDY 2
Chloe’s Creative Classroom
At the onset of COVID in early 2020, many pre-schools and childcare centres closed and parents were forced to home school children while they too worked from home. Newport small business owner, Chloe Campana, saw a need in this changing marketplace and, with her degree in early childcare, created Chloe’s Creative Classroom. Created with the purpose of connecting with children so they can learn through an interactive classroom, Chloe’s Creative Classroom is always fun, creative and educational.
Chloe required a website so she could spread the word about her exciting new business and also take bookings. Chloe contacted me to develop her website and I was only too happy to assist. Being a start-up business, I came up with an affordable web design package that fit within Chloe’s budget yet looked anything but “cheap”. The finished website looked great and suitably represented Chloe’s fun yet professional service.
Work completed on this project
- New web development: Set up and design new mobile-friendly WordPress website. Install and set up plugins needed for functionality, security, etc.
- Website speed optimisation : Optimise the website for fast download and load times.
- Website hosting : Set up website hosting and point domain names to new web server.
- Email setup : Set up the necessary email addresses.
- Online booking and payment system: Install and set up an online booking system so customers could book sessions and make payments via Paypal.
- Instagram feed: Integrate Chloe’s Instagram feed into the website.

“I just thought I would let you know that we have seen a real uptake in enquiries for the Suto equipment lately that has coincided with all the work we did last year putting up the new products, brochures and content. The last client I spoke to simply googled “compressed air flow meters” and we are coming up top of the first page (below the paid Ads). Just thought you’d like to know and am hoping to keep this momentum going. Thanks for your great work. – Steve Willcox, Compressed Air Technology.
I am a WordPress specialist and provide clients with training so they can manage their new website inhouse with confidence and ease.
WordPress powers 30% of the world’s websites and can be used to create simple websites and blogs to complex portals and enterprise websites. An easy-to-use content management system (CMS) makes it easy for business owners to update and maintain their website in-house. WordPress can be expanded to incorporate shopping cart functionality, secure payment and donation facilities, customer liaison portals, calculators, membership logins, property and real estate portfolios, hotel vacancy and booking systems, event calendars, appointment and reservation systems and so much more…
I can custom-design a WordPress website for your business that is in keeping with your brand or implement an off-the-shelf template of your choosing and make any necessary coding and design tweaks. I can implement plug-ins and applications that will revolutionise how you do business. The potential is endless!
“We have had very positive responses from people who have visited the website. Also our number of general enquires has risen dramatically too. Thank you for doing your job so well!” – Vesna Romic, Stylishly Sweet.
Is your website limping along on page 4 of Google? Are you missing out on new business because your competitors rank ahead of you on Google?
Chances are your website hasn’t been optimised correctly for SEO (or perhaps not at all). I can help achieve a page one organic Google ranking for your Newport business and ensure you stay there!
