I created this site to promote our family bar on the internet while also decreasing the reliance we had on Facebook for our marketing. By building a website for the bar I could attract new customers through the use of SEO, clearly showcase our menu and facilities and encourage customers to make reservations through the site.
How was it built?
The site was built using WordPress as its CMS. I added a reservation system to the site so customers can easily book a table, which is increasingly important in the era of COVID-19. When a customer fills out the reservation form we get an email saying that a new reservation has been made, then we check if there is space for that reservation in the bar at that date and time and if so we confirm the reservation and the customer gets a confirmation email. Also, I added the site to Cloudflare content delivery network which caches website content. This helps improve page load speeds, reduces bandwidth usage, and reduces CPU usage on the server. This in turn reduces the cost of running the website.
