Page One: Landing Page
We want a landing page to direct our prospective clients to navigate to an area of suited to their enquiry – e.g. Weddings (Venues, Menus, Contact Us) or Corporate (Conferences, Birthdays, Contact Us). Our underlying aim is to be a bit different. We are looking for a wow factor, even from the very first page. We are unsure however if this is going to be achieved through simplicity or complex design. We want a small area on the landing page for the client login area of our website, and perhaps a 'special events' type area (we do Melbourne Cup days etc). We want to find the balance between showcasing our food, our weddings, our venues and our corporate abilities.
We will be building a client login area where our brides and grooms can submit/edit information relating to their function through our website.
We understand that the text from the landing page is what helps with google rankings, which we certainly want. But if we like a minimal design for the landing page is there a way we can still rank well?
Page Two: Wedding Template Design
We have a lot of packages. Each package has a different menu and a different price. We have three cocktail packages, two formal sit-down (aka banquet) packages and two buffet packages. We also have three beverage packages, two ceremony packages etc. Our wedding clientele aren't too dissimilar in taste - they love the beach, they're aged 26 to 38 and they love good, good company and good wine. Brides like photos and testimonials.
Page Three: Corporate Template Design
We have less corporate than wedding packages but still around 8 to 12. We don't want people holding birthday parties to se corporate and think it doesn't apply to them, but we've had clients in the past turn away with the all wedding look we have portrayed on our previous websites. This is why we feel its best to divide the feel of either side of the website.
