Finding a Replacement for a Legacy Site

Turf Valley Resort had been using the EZ Publish content management system for their website. Since the system is now obsolete, Turf Valley needed to upgrade to a new, modern CMS that would allow them to expand the scope of their website with a focus on growing site conversions and boosting RFPs for group business as well as promoting the on-property spa.
 

Objectives

Moving beyond a simple CMS

Turf Valley Resort had some very important goals during this transition, they wanted more than just an "easy to use CMS," they were looking for a partner that could help them grow. They set out to solve four issues:
  • Increase conversions and RFPs
  • Increase organic traffic
  • Highlight and promote the on-property spa
  • Migrate to a new, more reliable Content Management System.

  • Group modules - to support weddings, golf events, meetings and the on-site spa
  • Paid media advertising as part of an omnichannel marketing program
  • Local search to promote the property
  • A on-site blog and dynamic event calendar was added to create fresh content opportunities
