We normally write our blog posts ourselves, but on this occasion we think Claire and Andy of Rustic Puglia have done our job for us!
Lumpy Lemon first designed a website for Rustic Puglia in 2007 while the renovation of our property was still underway, before we’d moved to Italy. We’d written a lot of the text and had some ideas about the pages we wanted. Our brief was to create the site around this, to include a booking mechanism, and to reflect the feel of the place in the design. The first website they created was exactly what we were looking for: simple to use, easy to update, and the ability to add or delete pages as we refined the content.
Simon provided detailed instructions on how to use the site and was always available to answer questions. He was also proactive in suggesting ideas on how to ensure we would get picked up by search engines, as well as making sure that the ‘back-end’ stuff was always up-to-date. In mid-2009 we discussed the idea of refreshing the site now that we were in business, were confident with the product we were selling and had some great photos to show off. Again, we worked together on the design and structure, and we were not so much consulted with as empowered to feel that we were making all the decisions. We are thrilled with the end result – it has taken us to the next level and we think it’s a great reflection of Rustic Puglia.
