This was a project for a meetup group for which I'm on the leadership team. The group is for professional women business owners looking to meet and learn from others. After renaming the group, we decided to go through a mini re-branding process. As part of that process, we decided to build a website so that we could have a web presence outside of meetup and increase our reach.
I decided on WordPress as platform so that anyone on the leadership team could update the site content.
The goals of the site were:
- Increase awareness of our group
- Provide a membership site where members could network and get additional resources to help grow their businesses
- Provide a calendar for upcoming events
All of these goals were achieved. I built a fully custom theme using Automattic's Underscores starter theme and Zurb Foundation. The site is set up as a membership site using the well-built Restrict Content Pro plugin.
