This was a project for a meetup group for which I was an organizer. The group was 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 was set up as a membership site using the well-built Restrict Content Pro plugin.
