OurBribie.com has been a constant evolution, what initially started as a simple site that quickly out grew Wordpress is now a completely custom designed and developed site built on-top of ExpressionEngine by us at TotalServe. While there is many components that make up the entire solution, here are the major highlights:
ExpressionEngine powers the content on the website, and how it's managed. From event information, accommodation bookings, member management, blog posts and more.
We've built a suite of custom ExpressionEngine plugins that powers not only the website, but also feeds data into iPhone/iOS and Facebook applications.
We've meticulously analysed months of data & implemented a long-term online marketing campaign that has resulted in OurBribie.com becoming the areas #1 tourism website.
Implementing good a online marketing strategy is hard. It requires deeply understand the businesses and it's goal, understanding technology and how to best utilise it, understanding Internet Standards, knowing basic psychology and understanding human behaviour.
The site offers local businesses the ability to sell their own products and services, plus businesses in the tourism industry can sell accommodation, event ticketing and special deals.
This is all powered by ExpressionEngine and our custom developed modules that utilise Stripe as the secure underlaying credit card processor.
