New website Kwekkeboom

Background

For many years, Kwekkeboom worked with an outdated Joomla-website, that did not meet expectations anymore. The website was slow, it wasn’t easy to use and did not fit the premium image that Kwekkeboom has. Time to combine history, craftsmanship and online techniques and integrate those into a state-of-the-art website.

Approach

Before a new website could be built, there were some other steps to take first. First of all, Kwekkeboom needed to choose a Content Management System (CMS) that fit their wishes. When this was all set up, they could start looking at web builders.

CMS-selection

Kwekkeboom wanted a CMS that, amongst other things, could be expandable with new features. Next to that, it had to be easy in use, to make sure that their own employees could work with the website after a short intstruction. Digital Wizards mapped these and other wishes in a CMS-requirements document. After consoling with Kwekkeboom, it was decided that WordPress would be the best CMS.

WordPress web builder selection

Digital Wizards compiled a list of 10 web builders for Kwekkeboom to choose from. The three that fit Kwekkeboom’s wishes the best were invited to do a pitch. Stuurlui ended up to be the web builders that offered the most. This web builder offered Kwekkeboom the ideal balance between design ideas and tackling this project in processes.

Requirements new website Kwekkeboom

Kwekkeboom set a number of requirements for their new website. The new site had to:

  • Refer to Kwekkeboom’s rich history.
  • Be attentive to the pure craftsmanship of the products.
  • Be a real visual experience for the visitor.
  • Inform and activate visitors.
  • Have a proper balance between design, content, and SEO.
Results

Kwekkeboom, Digital Wizards and Stuurlui are very satisfied with how they created a website that on the one hand creates a real craving for ‘bitterballen’, but on the other hand is optimized for SEO.
