E-commerce website for Journey East Tours.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
After preproduction meetings with staff at Journey East, we developed a website that would drive interest and engagement by integrating stylised photographs, videos and words to briefly introduce the Gaelic history of east Belfast and drive ticket and merchandise sales.
As Journey East was introducing Gaelic history tours in this area of Belfast for the first time, we Search Engine Optimised the WordPress website we created to deliver first page discovery for service and geographic specific word searches on major search engines including Google.

PREPRODUCTION involved listening to the client’s requirements and objectives before researching and presenting design and function options that would best promote and sell the clients services and merchandising to their target audience.
PRODUCTION was broken into four distinct areas –
1). Research and write words that intrigued, inspired and prompted the viewer to book tickets on the client’s tours, buy products on the new Journey East website and share what they learned across social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
2). Location scout, photograph and film popular Gaelic associated tourist locations and those less well known in east Belfast.
3). Design and develop a website that is both user friendly and allows purchase within three clicks of landing on the website’s home page.
4). Search Engine Optimize the website to present it on the first page of service and geographic specific word searches done locally, nationally and internationally on Google and other major search engines.
