Walks on the Wild Side

Walks On The Wild Side is a small dog walking/pet sitting business based in Epsom. We built them a website to show their services and allow customers to get in touch to book a service. We will soon be building them a personalised booking system.

The Problem/Challenge

Walks On The Wild Side (WOTWS) needed a website to showcase their services and allow potential customers to get in touch to book services. The owner of WOTWS, Steph, already had brand colours and typography decided so I needed to take those into consideration whilst building the website.

The Process

I started by discussing with Steph exactly what she needed to include on the website and what was important to her, it was important to her that she could easily update services and prices and upload testimonials to the website. Steph also wanted to include the photos of her clients pets from her Instagram account on her website.

I researched local competitors to Steph and drew up a plan to create her a website which made her more appealing to potential clients than her competitors.

Once I was sure what Steph needed to include I worked with her to create content to fill the pages that engaged her potential clients. Once Steph had signed off on the designs and the content the website was launched.

I created a simple to use back end for Steff to easily update services and prices and upload testimonials to the website. I also included a Instagram feed which automatically shows photos that Steph posts on her Instagram account.

A year or so after the website was launched Steph realised she had need for another page containing links to other local businesses that she recommended. We worked together to make sure everything she needed was included and that she could easily upload or update businesses on the page.

Steph is signed on to my monthly maintenance plan which ensures her website stays secure, and gives her 2 hours of updates each month.

The Results

Steph has found that since the website launch she has a steady stream of bookings via her website, and has increased followers on her social media accounts. Below are screen shots of her website on various devices.

What They Think

I had tried to use those ‘build your own websites’ but could not get it looking professional or really how I wanted & didn’t have features that I would like (without a lot of hidden costs!). Cat was clear, upfront & was very patient with my lack of design skills!

She was flexible & happy to discuss my ideas & showed me features I didn’t think were possible within my budget. Cat took it upon herself to learn more about my area of business & research what would make my website stand out from my local competitors. The best thing about her service was having someone who supported & ran with my ideas.

Cat was enthusiastic & imaginative making my website absolutely perfect & the envy of my competitors! I have had a steady stream of bookings via my website which has reduced the amount of time I was spending on the phone or replying to enquires. With the link from my gallery on my website it takes viewers to my social media pages which has increased my follower numbers. I have had friendly competitors mention that they’re envious of my website & recognise my business from my website!

I would absolutely recommend her to others. Cat was so friendly & professional, all communication was done via e-mail for ease. She really went above & beyond what I expected while keeping within my budget. She created a website that is better than I could of imagined & am proud of. Cat, thank you so very much. You really went above & beyond – I was so lucky to find you!
