Embracing the Digital Journey: Obstacles that needed to be Overcome
When I first started working with Korome Hills Resort, I knew that I would face a number of challenges. The resort had a beautiful location and a lot to offer guests, but their online presence was literally non-existent. They didn't have a website, and their social media pages were inactive.
When I began the project, my main challenge was to create a website from scratch. I wanted to showcase the resort's identity, values, and offerings through appealing visuals, engaging writing, and smooth functionality. It was also important to me that the website was easy to navigate and worked well on different devices.
I spent a lot of time brainstorming ideas for the website design. My goal was to make it visually attractive and informative. I also wanted to ensure that visitors could easily use and find their way around the website.
Another challenge I faced was creating social media accounts from scratch. The resort had old social media accounts that were created very long ago by some team that they were not in contact with anymore, so they couldn't even access these accounts. I had to create new accounts for the resort on Facebook, and Instagram.
Finally, I faced the challenge of optimizing the resort's online visibility.
