Western College Website - Phase 1
A new website was delivered for Western College that is fast loading, mobile responsive and SEO ready to increase search traffic to the website.
3 Phase Website Build
Western College is an education provider in Dubbo NSW, Australia. The College has operated a website for some time but has never had a solid tool for the business. For this reason, they needed to redesign their website to align with the goals of the business.
We collaborated with the staff at Western College to break the project down into 3 Phases. In the short term, Western College required a rapid build website with some simple features to meet compliance requirements. Also required was a CMS to allow Western College staff to easily manage their content on the site.
This rapid website build needed to have the ability to grow with the client into Phase 2 and 3.
The Phase 1 Result
We recommended the development of a completely new website with a custom design. The website would be easy to manage and would convey the value that Western College adds to its students.
Specifically, we designed the new website to:
- Be easy to use on a mobile phone
- Fulfil compliance requirements for the school audit
- Have simple information about the school and its courses
- Be a contact point for the school using the nsw.edu.au domain name
- Be secure and a good foundation for a second phase build.
- Be easy for staff to update and manage onsite.
The next phase of development for Western College will include an online enrollment process and payment gateway.
Features and Improvements we included for Western College’s new website.
We dramatically reduced the page load time.
We added an event calendar tool so staff can easily manage events.
The new website works well on all types of mobile devices, which is important to users and to Google.
Phase 1 of the project has delivered an excellent foundation for Western College to get great results from SEO.
Here are some before and after shots of the website showing the improvements we made.
