Kayak Fun

We redesigned the Kayak Fun website recently. The new website is built using Divi and WooCommerce. The WooCommerce bookings engine is very flexible and configurable and can accommodate all sorts of time dependent booking requirements for many types of businesses. With Divi, social sharing is elegant and easy to configure.

Bahia BeachFront Apartments

Bahia are located in Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast, Australia. Open Web Design worked with Bahia helping them to increase revenue through search engine optimization and other internet marketing strategies. This made the business much more profitable by:
  • attracting more direct bookings
  • reducing commissions while
  • increasing occupancy.
At the start Bahia ranked poorly in Google for key phrases that relate to Surfers Paradise and the Gold Coast. We managed to get the website into the first page of results in Google for the term "surfers paradise accommodation" - a very competitive search term. It stayed there for over 1 year until the new owners switched web designers.

Bohémienne Pillows

Open Web Design created this site in 2002. We did research on potential keyword popularity and competiton to draw up a list of keywords to target. The customer, Jacqui, wrote the content, supplied images and, being very artistic, had a big influence on the site's visuals. We trained Jacqui and wrote a manual so that she can maintain the site herself with standard Microsoft software.
