ABOUT EMMA HAGGAS ART
Emma Haggas is a fine artist with a passion for painting landscapes, still life and flowers. She has gained significant recognition for her oil paintings, which are displayed in galleries throughout the UK. Her art has also been featured in several editions of House & Garden and The World Of Interiors magazines.
Emma had an existing website built on a custom CMS platform. This website had become outdated, non-mobile friendly and it did not offer the functionality that her growing art business required. Emma wanted a new modern website with an advanced gallery that would showcase her art and project it to a new customer base.
Following a free, no-obligation consultation with Emma Haggas Art we recommended that a complete website rebuild was undertaken. After further discussions about a suitable website platform, we concluded that WordPress would be able to offer the functionality that her art business required.
VIP IT then presented a brief plan and quotation to Emma, which she was delighted with. At this stage the design and development process commenced. We worked in collaboration with Emma to ensure that her new WordPress website met all of her requirements and boasted a design that was modern and complementary to her art.
We were able to transfer text and images from her old website and ensure that they were integrated into her new website. We then integrated and developed an image gallery using industry-leading image gallery software that showcases her art.
Once the website was ready, we facilitated the migration of the Emma Haggas domain from the provider of the old CMS over to WordPress. Following a programme of initial SEO optimisation, the website was launched and the handover was complete.
Emma Haggas Art are now able to update the website themselves while having the peace of mind that they can call upon VIP IT on an ad-hoc basis for any significant updates or advice.
Following the launch of the new website, Emma Haggas Art have seen a significant increase in their website traffic and continue to report strong sales growth. Emma Haggas Art has also benefited from reaching a new customer base through the website that may not have discovered her art through art galleries.
