Lake Eden Events & Lodging | Case Study

The Challenge

For the past 10 years, Lake Eden Events & Lodging has been utilizing a website using a platform based on Filemaker software with little to no updates to the UX or UI.  While it has been more convenient for the business owner(s) to simply focus on customer service and providing a beautiful space for events and weddings, the conversion rates of web visitors and digital engagement was severely impacted.  With the way the previous website was set up, the website was informational only; 100% of guests interested in booking a stay or event with Lake Eden Events have to take the time to call or email to reserve. The possibilities are very high that many of those chose not to take the next step because it was inconvenient, time consuming or not achievable on their mobile devices. 

The Solution

In order to bring the Lake Eden Events & Lodging website current and catalyze a significant shift in the customer service and booking process for potential clients, the solution was a redesign.  The WordPress platform was confirmed as the best fit and most user-friendly.  Additionally, the authentic message and brand of Lake Eden Events was made a priority in the new look, layout and design of the website. Using an intuitive, efficient and communicative approach, the site was redesigned and integrated with social media sharing plugins, SEO, Google Analytics, Google Maps, web copy and professional, high quality images. Lake Eden Events & Lodging successfully positioned itself as a place where memories are made – online and offline.
