Rachel installed her own WordPress website, but needed a little technical WordPress assistance to fine-tune some of the details. The new changes are designed to target and convert!
Christi is absolutely amazing! The changes she made were better than I imagined. Christi listened to my desires and needs then created something much better than I expected. I highly, highly recommend her for any and all of your website needs. Not only does she have an eye for design, but she’s super sweet and very easy to work with. I will be hiring Christi for all future updates and changes. Christi…you truly are the best! Thank you.
Custom WordPress Category Landing Pages
First, here’s a look at Rachel’s category page before. They were the standard blog archive pages that show all posts in the specific category in a traditional blog format.
Rachel’s vision was to turn her standard category pages into category landing pages instead. This is the initial mockup she sent.
Then I got to work! I used Rachel’s example to build a mobile-friendly custom category page template that she can duplicate for her other key categories. Now it displays custom category text, hand-selected posts from that category, a category-specific lead magnet, related products, and THEN the most recent posts in the category. As she writes more posts in the future, they will automatically populate at the bottom too!
Custom WordPress Sidebar
Then Rachel decided to hire me again to work a little WordPress magic on her sidebar. She wanted everything to align, stand out more, display targeted category-specific content.
I added some color, fixed the alignment, and created shop-able resources at the bottom. When visiting the “grammar” category, specific grammar resources display. When visiting reading, reading products display, etc. This way visitors who are interested in that specific content will see targeted products in the sidebar while reading each post.
