Lifestyle Appliances Limited is one of the largest independent suppliers of outdoor leisure products in the UK market.
They came to Pedleyonline because they were finding their template based pre-existing website difficult to update. Following a thorough review of their site and a discussion about their requirements and website goals we made a proposal for a new and improved website which would deliver all of their requirements and be very easy for them to update.
The new Lifestyle Appliances Website has been developed using the Content Management System, WordPress and has been designed in such a way that Lifestyle Appliances can make certain updates to the website themselves, such as adding or amending News items, adding, amending or removing products, minor amendments to text on all pages. This gives them control, flexibility and reduces running costs, although Pedleyonline are always available to provide help and support where required or tackle more substantial and more complex updates.
The new site is widescreen with a top horizontal navigation menu. It has a responsive / mobile friendly design which means it displays according to the type of device being used whether that be a mobile phone, tablet or a computer.
Pages include Home, About Us, Leisure Range, Industrial Range, New Products, Support, News, Contact. The Leisure Range, Industrial Range and New Products Section, all provide a hierarchy to sub-categories which house a large number of products. Each product has a main image, product information and specifications, downloadable pdf user manuals and links to related products. The product organisation is good however due to the large number of products on the website there is also a Search Facility in the website header for speed and convenience when searching for products.
News Items are displayed on the site in a blog format. These are dated and displayed in chronological order. Snippet text and a feature image with a ‘read more’ tag leading to the full post with further text, images and embedded video content. The News section of the website enables Lifestyle Appliances to add content to their website independently and report on new product launches, events, special offers and industry news.
Links to and from social media pages for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube which are used in conjunction with the website.
Although this is quite a large website there is plenty of scope for future development and we are always available to make suggestions and provide assistance.
We also worked hard to ensure a smooth transition from their existing website to the new website and hosting to ensure no loss of ranking on Google. We also supplied SSL Web Hosting provided and managed by Pedleyonline. For more please visit – www.lifestyleappliances.co.uk
