CHALLENGE: Website Re-launch
The website for an exclusive, high-end marina was desperately dated, technically ineffective and not mobile responsive. The client wanted a fresh, innovative website to properly reflect their brand.
Created a contemporary, highly visual, impactful website to showcase the many attributes of the marina and the location. Crafted appealing, original content to engage visitors and an intuitive, nimble user experience to guide them to useful information and handy tools. Launched in only six weeks to coincide with the season kickoff.
“Wentworth Marina turned to Nancy Wolff Leary and Online Amplify when we decided that we need a new website, as our old one was very out of date. Nancy took care of all of the details for us, making what we thought was going to be a difficult task extremely easy. The end result was a beautiful new website that not only worked and looked great but one we could be proud of. Online Amplify exceeded our expectations for design and functionality and our new site was delivered on budget and in the promised time frame. Our customers were all very impressed with the results of the upgrade and our site has more traffic than ever. We would not hesitate to recommend Online Amplify!”
