Your New Website
Having re-designed over a hundred websites in our 5 years and many being similar to your situation, there are several components to your site which would benefit you greatly.
Solid call to action attracting new clients as well as encourage current clientele to suggest your Gin to their peers.
We suggest professionaly taken photos and action shots of people enjoying your Gin. In addition although listing reviews and their testimonials is great, it would be even better if this comes from a well known website in the industry such as, The Gin Guide, since if they are given some context in the form of a case study, these will serve you for years to come.
Again, we suggest professionaly taken photos of each cocktail.
This section will consist of a 'list' page which will showcase all the cocktails with option for the user to filter by Difficulty, Occassion and Preparation for example.
When the user then clicks on a particular cocktail he is redirected to that cocktails page. Which shall include high resolution photography with simple and easy to follow instructions.
NON BESPOKE SHOP/PRODUCT PAGE
This section will be the main call to action in header section of the website. The product page will use a standard drag and drop layout available from Wix Stores.
As an end results, the website shall have a similar feel to The Spirit of One and Ludlow Dry Gin.
CALL TO ACTION
We'll strategically place various buttons and forms through out the site to convert leads into clients.
In this day and age, it's vital to give away content and advice in advance in order to "win people over" that you're the right company for the job. Frequently asked questions from the kinds of clients you want more of is a great place to start when thinking about what content to produce.
TERMS & CONDITIONS
A standard Terms & Conditions page will be created. Policy content is to be provided by the client.
Another call to action system which can be utilized by the client by sending out daily/weekly/monthly newsletters to his client base.
AGE DISCLAIMER POP UP
An age disclaimer pop up banner will be included such that only individuals above a certain age will be able to enter the site.
Relax, all of our websites are 'Responsive'.
Computer or Phone - it will look great!
If you would like to join us and become a client then we'd be delighted to have you.

Kitchen-Finder needed a re-brand and a new website. They have over 50 years of experiences, with most business enquiries were from referrals.
Re-brand the company. Same name, but new logo and colour scheme along with a new website with an emphasis put on bringing in new leads for various new services, such as a custom marketplace solution, for other vendors to list their furnitures.
After a few week of launching the new site, with proper optimization, their website started generating more traffic and in return the were converting more leads. Week in, week out.
Kitchen-Finder's Managing Partner had this to say:
"A great experience working with Aurora Design Solutions. David and his team are very professional and very good in communication, always putting the client's interest as number one priority. The final product is exactly what we looked for!"

Process & Timescales
STEP 1 - DESIGN PRESENTATION
A design concept will be designed. Naturally this will be similar to the sites you provided, but we try to think outside the box and come up with something that isn't obvious. This is often where the best ideas come from.
We'll go through this and decide which direction to take and any adjustments.
STEP 2 - WEBSITE CONTENT
Now we have your design locked-in, we can begin to construct the website. Any photos and any other content will need to be gathered at this stage.
STEP 3 - WEBSITE BUILD
Using everything we've gathered, your website is built. Once it's done, we'll present it to you and go through the details in accordance with the objectives originally set. Any amends are made at this stage.
STEP 4 - LAUNCH
The launch process is a carefully considered one. We need to ensure email addresses don't go down, the site doesn't have any downtime, any old links are re-directed to the new pages and several other things.
This is something we've done hundreds of times before.
We operate to a checklist which we've curated over the years and it's not failed us once. We prefer to launch late on a Friday night to give us the best chance of getting any issues ironed out. You can sleep easy knowing we'll be on-call over your launch weekend to ensure everything goes according to plan.
In total, it will take us between 3 - 6 weeks to get your website live.
Designing a website for KAKO GIN by increasing their online presence and brand awareness with a NEW website.
The objective is to increase the brand awareness through a bespoke website. We'll do this by doing two things:
Firstly, understand who your end user is by figuring out the real value you provide beyond the mechanics.
Secondly, employ modern branding tactics such that your brand will be known for the quality of gin it provides. This way we create the same consistent messaging to use throughout your platforms which will help your entire brand speaks to your audience. We have explained more about how we plan to achieve this in the next pages.
