Last Fall, LA's Kinara Spa was put in touch with Plank (through Montreal ex-pat & digital media expert Kimberly Senn) to have us help them get a handle on their website.
While the design of their exsiting site was fresh and consistent with their brand and LA-based clientele, their real struggle was they could not update their website content, there was little room to build up a dialogue with their audience and they needed some understanding of how they could take their site to the next level.
Many of our other clients have come to us with the same problem - a website that is comprised of hard-coded HTML, making them dependent on an external service provider to update even the most simple pieces of content.
Plank knew there was one very simple solution . . . WordPress.
Over the last few months Plank has moved Kinara's existing site over to a WordPress-based CMS, maintained a split between their ecomm store and their static site (providing no disruption or change to their webstore, resulting in zero downtime) and created an easy-to-manage Kinara Blog and Press Gallery (using WP plugin Galleria) , all housed within their WordPress Admin.
Kinara is happy that they can now manage their site with ease and Plank is happy that WordPress once again proved to be a fantastic CMS solution.
