The Problem

A better website needed

When JOED approached us for assistance in adding PayPal buttons to their existing website, we discovered that the website was difficult to navigate and update. We found that there was no provision to add JavaScript to any of the web pages, which meant that developers had to be hired manually for each update, incurring additional costs for JOED. Our client was disappointed with this level of service and asked us to build a user-friendly website that they could manage internally, without incurring ongoing expenses for routine updates.

The Solution

Redesign the Website and Functionality

After JOED signed up with John Potter Media, we worked on devising a plan to create a visually appealing and user-friendly website that could be updated with ease. We decided to use WordPress as the framework due to its simplicity and efficiency. With WordPress, we were able to quickly and effectively customize the website’s appearance and reorganize the navigation to make it easier for visitors to find the information they were looking for. We were then able to add payment buttons they originally wanted for the site.
