Project Overview

This Canadian author came to us for a website redesign so that she could feel good about her website in order to promote and advertise her books for sale. Like many entrepreneurs, she designed her first website all by herself, but soon got lost in WordPress and admitted it was time to hire a professional. 

Kathryn primarily wanted her website to feature her books for sale, as well as a place to post new writing pieces and blog articles. 

The Challenge

The challenge for website do-it-yourselfers is that you’re not experienced enough with website content management systems to make your website do what you want. But we came up with a genius solution to dual-purpose the traditional WordPress blog functionality to split into 2 sections: 

  1. Kathryn’s Books
  2. Blog Articles

The blog is actually managing both of these sections, and we are using the Categories and Tags to sort and filter to display different types of posts in the 2 sections.

You gotta love it when there’s a simple trick that we can use to provide advanced solutions for our clients. 

The Result

Now Kathryn has a professionally-designed website to showcase her new books, provide her with incentive to write more books, and gives her an outlet to share her thoughts on her blog. 

And her books are super fun! Dog Park and the sequel Dog Daycare are mid-grade chapter books that would be perfect to read to your kids as a parent or teacher. They are available in paperbook and ebook format!
