ENGLISH ICE HOCKEY ASSOCIATION (EIHA)
I was recommended to the English Ice Hockey Association by a mutual friend and we also had a link via FixturesLive. Their existing site was a mess and the platform it was built on was just unable to cope with the flexibility required by modern mobile platforms. It was however a very busy site and some of the stats did daunt me a little, I have to say.
Having said that, it was exciting too. I got my graphics guy to work on their logo which the EIHA were very sensitive about, but was in desperate need for a re-draw. I built the site using Avada on WordPress and the biggest issue was organising the 160+ pages into some kind of usable navigation menu.
The result was great and we’re getting more hits year on year, currently around 8,000 a day at the weekends. I also went through all of their documentation and used a download pp within the site to introduce version control and again, some much needed organisation.
A new build WordPress website that started back in 2014 and required a massive data transfer. We now have over 160 pages and get up to 8000 hits a day. This is a great project and although it was a struggle at the start to arrange all the information, it is now just how I wanted it and proof that you can still have a clean and organised site, – even with 160 pages!
A professional product supplied with excellent support to ensure a successful re brand of the associations web identity. The company supplied good customer service and made the transition from old to new painless. The bright design and format was exactly what the association needed to move forward.
Our members have since its launch been very complementary about the site its layout and the fact that as a association we have moved with the times.
