With mobile browsing traffic increasing to over 40% of all internet traffic, along with the prediction that mobile browsing will overtake desktop in the next year or so, having a site that works well on mobile devices is a must.
Built on the backbone of WordPress, we have allowed the client to have easy access to an administration area for them to make changes and to update with new information as and when necessary. This approach works especially well for the events section which is used to promote and provide information in the run up to an event and once the event is over provide results in the form of a download.
This means that there is less bloat that has to be downloaded to view the website which in turn makes the site faster to load and faster to navigate around on mobile devices 46% faster when compared to the old site.
“Peterborough City Rowing Club had a very old and outdated website and as the Club continues to grow and attract new members it became clear that we needed to update it. The team at WTBI have done an excellent job in making this happen. PCRC is run by volunteers and as such we rely on them freely giving their time to help market the club. WTBI were really helpful, working with our team of volunteers and guiding us in the right direction to ensure that we achieved a new website which far surpassed our expectations. The result is a brand new website which provides the Club with a very professional and stylish ‘shop front’. WTBI also provided us with full training to enable our volunteers to update parts of the website ensuring that it not only meets our needs now but will do so for many years to come.”
