Sue Westenhaver of the Inn at Harbour Ridge Bed and Breakfast is a long-time Acorn customer. Sue had been patching onto the web site for her inn in Missouri for years, and knew a new, more modern site was needed but was slightly overwhelmed with the process of building a new, custom web site.
Sue decided to have a new Turnkey site built. The requirements gathering process is much quicker than with a custom site design, and the site itself can be built and put up live much faster as well.
Sue chose bright pretty colors for her new site, and kept most of the same pages from the former site:
After the site had been launched, Sue sent us this report:
"Annie, Happy to give you, Lisa, and Acorn a raving review! 🙂 Checked my room counts last night and for the first 60 days of 2012, I'm currently up 27 rooms over last year and knocking on the door of all time highest occupancy (that's even before the recession or whatever). I know my website didn't go live till the third week of January but I could easily be closed in January - not much demand in our resort destination that time of year... What's amazing is that I'm getting at least one call a day for golf packages - that says to me that I must be coming up high in searches, cause this has never happened before. Also, I've either done or have six small weddings booked between mid January and April 4th...that too is AMAZING!!! I do enough of those elopements and small ceremonies and life will be good...I might become an Internet Rev!!!"
What a wonderful result to a much-needed update, and a new possible career path for Sue!
