Customer Success:How to Boost your Group Business With the Right CMS

Turf Valley Resort is a historic property between the metropolitan areas of Washington D.C. and Baltimore. The resort offers extended stay villas, a spa, two 18-hole championship golf courses, 40,000 square feet of meeting & event space, indoor and outdoor wedding venues, and a restaurant. Turf Valley's target market is seeking a bucolic resort atmosphere, with proximity to the region's two major cities - Baltimore and Washington D.C.
 
 

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.
