Before we worked on the site: images missing, poor formatting, outdated look, no logo
When I was first contacted by the client (Mollycoddlers, LLC), they had created a very basic, static site using Yahoo Business. Since then, Yahoo business had faded out of existence and so the customer was left with nearly nothing. What they needed was a site that was calming, interactive, informative, and allowed people to both search for (and apply to be) a nanny.
If you take a look at their previous site, it was almost non-functional. Many of the pictures had broken links, the overall format of the site was grossly outdated, and the aesthetic of the site did not represent with the business owner felt the business was all about.
After speaking with the owner at great length, we decided to create a word press website, so that she would be able to maintain it after it was created. WordPress was also a natural fit because she wanted several plug-ins to include ones that would allow people to apply for jobs, schedule appointments, and sending requests for childcare.
