Recently, we launched a new website for Harbourtowne Resort in St. Michaels on the Eastern Shore. The site reflects recent renovations to the hotel and golf course, and helps show off the property to people looking for a golf getaway…or a place to get married near the water…or a convenient location for a meeting. Needless to say, we had several audiences to cater to.
The new site more accurately highlights the strengths of Harbourtowne in general, but more importantly the site speaks directly to Harbourtowne’s main audiences: meeting planners, weddings, golfers, and people on vacation in St. Michaels. With more succinct copy, and better organization, people can find what they want more quickly.
One of the main reasons that Harbourtowne decided to have us redo their website was that their old design was outdated, even though it was done just four years ago. With the rapid pace that the internet is evolving, sites that are only a few years old are now undergoing full redesigns in an effort to keep up with the trends. Heck, even Google, the most popular website ever, recently redesigned their website.
We didn’t just re-design, but we also added some really cool functionality. Now meeting planners can download RFP’s directly from the website. There are also more robust photo galleries with better functionality. Finally, we added social media icons so that our audience can connect with us on Facebook or see our photos on Flickr. Overall, the site is much more user friendly. Click on the picture of the new site below to see it in action!
