Ambassador International is a Christian publishing company located in Greenville, SC. After completing several websites for their authors, Ambassador approached us to redesign their site. Their current website had two main problems:
- The website was built in a way to where the content management system’s core files could not be updated even though numerous security patches had been released. This led to the website being compromised numerous times by hackers.
- The books they featured on the website did not have their own pages, so the site was not taking full advantage of ranking opportunities in search engines.
The new WordPress-based website was built with a custom content type for books with multiple taxonomies, which allowed visitors to filter through the titles by publish date, author, genre and popularity. Visitors interested in purchasing a book can click over to Amazon, Barnes and Noble or Vyrso to purchase the title. Each book page contains general information about the title, information about the author, the ability to share/comment on the book via social media.
The homepage of the website includes a full-width rotating section that is used to promote new releases as well as the most recent blog posts. The Get Published area of the website includes information for potential new authors to submit manuscripts, find best practices for writing and formatting their content, and links to Ambassador’s self-publishing platform.Visit Website
