The Historic Mankin Mansion’s old website was outdated and had an unprofessional appearance that did not align with their brand at all. The website was slow-loading, had inconsistent formatting, and was difficult to update by the client. MM needed a way to showcase all of the beauty and elegance of the estate and all the amenities available. They needed the ability to showcase videos of the property, as well as, a high -quality photo gallery of past events and of the entire property. Lastly, the blog they had was difficult to update by the client.
The team at the Historic Mank Mansion needs to be able to update their blog and press area of the site easily and by multiple team members. The admin area of the WordPress website allows MM to manage and add new weddings and press/news articles easily. Each entry can be edited from one convenient admin page which populates the home pageant the Press page.
Just creating a nice looking website is not enough in today’s world, but providing a superb user experience to the visitors is even more important. We created a new website that visitors are offered a unique User Experience (UX) in order to elevate their overall browsing experience. By speeding up the load time, improving the site's responsiveness on mobile devices, and utilizing the proper use of high-quality videos and photos, we were able to greatly improve the overall user experience, leading to more inquiries and bookings.
Now, the Historic Mankin Mansion has a professional website that properly represents the beauty and elegance of the estate and surrounding property. It also now highlights the historical significance of the estate. The new site has a modern and elegant design that better represents the MM brand and matches the regal nature of the grounds. We added a blog that is now easy for the client to update on their own. The new full-size videos and photo galleries truly highlight the overall experience one can expect to have, as well as, all the options available to couples looking to book the venue for their most special day.
