Caboolture Sports Cricket Club

Woolston Web Design is proud to partner with the Caboolture Snakes Cricket Club in the design and launch of their new website. We met with committee members and discussed the goals for the club. Then we discussed how a new website will contribute to their marketing plans and strategy for bringing in new players and keeping existing ones.

Previously, the club had been relying on social media sites for communication and promotion. This was not getting the club where it wanted to go, so we decided on a WordPress driven website where club officials could manage content themselves. We also discussed social media integration so that we could continue to capture that audience. That means that someone could post a news link on the website and it will automatically be sent to Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Google+ etc.

The design needed to be bright and colourful because children are a large target demographic for the club. We also needed to build in support for publicizing game scores, allowing for registration and sign-on and general news involving the club.

We are proud to launch the Caboolture Sports Cricket Club’s new website. Go and have a look for yourself. You will find it at http://www.caboolturesportscricket.com.au.
