Kalang River Motel in Urunga gets a New Website

We recently made a new website for Kalang River Motel in Urunga for June and Adriaan de Jonge who asked us to use a design similar to another website that I won’t mention. Often, we create custom website templates using Artisteer, but in this case we used a theme from Elegant Themes.

New Website for Kalang River Motel I must say that I was pleasantly surprise by the Theme and how it managed image sliders and layout. More interesting has been the way it manages SEO. You can download an unlimited number of themes for a yearly joining fee of $39 – so the price is right and the themes are very attractive.

I’ve tended to install All in One SEO as a plug in for WordPress websites because of how it helps you manage page titles and meta tags, but it would appear that Elegant Themes has built and SEO tool that may make All in One redundant (jury is still out).

One of the main challenges has been to attract people looking for accommodation in Coffs Harbour to consider Kalang River Motel because Urunga is 20 minutes south of Coffs.

TripAdvisor has been a great source of guests for Kalang River Motel, so we integrated a reviews widget into the sidebar. We also added links for FaceBook, but decided to leave the stream off and just opt for the like button.

Naturally, there is a secure Online Booking feature provided by Web Reservation Systems.

About Mark

Founder of Web Reservation Systems, focused on helping businesses in the Australian Accommodation travel sector get more value from Internet Marketing. Originally, we opened up in 2001 as a supplier of Front Office Software linked to Online Booking facilities. That allowed motels and hotels to add booking buttons to their websites as well as sell through Global Distribution Systems. You could say this was an early 'Channel Manager' because it allowed the property manager to simply control price and availability for a diverse array of wholesale and retails websites. Next, we started building websites to profile our customers (Australian Holiday Guide). That lead to building websites for customers as a favour. Now do about 80 websites a year using BurgundySky and Joomla. For small businesses I recommend using BurgundySky as it is very easy to start and manage. Joomla is also great, but harder to install and maintain for a small business. Our web design business is based in Byron Bay, NSW. Byron Bay is a great place to live and work. I have 2 kids (15 and 17) who are both born here and my wife, Shobhan Oliver) is a successful artist.
