I expect many of you reading this will have heard of our flagship product, Run Your Own Website? It is our award-winning technology turned into an off-the shelf product that means that any business can now have a top-notch website for a fraction of the cost of one of our bespoke websites. We have built many bespoke websites over the last 11 years, including one earlier this year for a $4.3 Billion company (Brother Inc). That same quality of build can also be found in Run Your Owen Website, which is what makes it different from every other low-cost website builder out there!
We have never bought a template, all our websites have bespoke themes, created to our high standards. They are fully accessible, responsive and all our clients can run them themselves!
The next stage for us was always going to be integration of e-commerce with Run Your Own Website and I am delighted to announce that our first two Run Your Own Shopsites are now live!
The first one was for an amazing charity, Through the Roof. The charity offers expert advice on making Churches and other buildings accessible to those with disabilities in the UK. They also do many other fantastic things, such as reconditioning old wheelchairs and taking them out to Africa.
In the 20 years they have been going, they have transformed the lives of thousands of people across the world. We have had a long-standing relationship with them and their previous site was a bespoke build with an integrated shop. This was some years ago and they were aware that their website was looking somewhat dated, so they wanted to go for something fresh. However, funds were limited, so we had discussions about how we could integrate their site within our fantastic Run Your Own Website framework. They had already been overhauling the content on their website by building a new one in WordPress, using a free template.
We had 3 challenges:
- Import the content from their temporary website into a Run Your Own Website.
- Import the shopsite from their live site into the same Run Your Own Website
- Maintain the main style elements of their existing site whilst giving it a fresh makeover.
I am delighted to say that we have achieved all of these things and the website is now live! The website is also secured under our 2048bit SSL Certificate, which increase customer confidence, particularly with any online purchases. You can see the website yourself at https://www.throughtheroof.org/
The team at Through the Roof are as delighted with their new website as we are. It was a logistical challenge but one that we could rise to!
