Romantic Novelists’ Association
The RNA approached us to redesign and redevelop their website after we were recommended to them by the management team and members of the CWA (Crime Writers’ Association). The new website includes events, resources, a searchable and filterable database of past award winners and a login-protected members area.
The board of the RNA are absolutely thrilled with the exceptional service and expertise provided by Emma and Tom at Considered Creative. Their team crafted a stunning WordPress site for our 1000-strong membership organisation that not only embodies our brand identity perfectly but also delivers a seamless and intuitive user experience. From start to finish, their professionalism, creativity and attention to detail were unparalleled. The new site has attracted much praise from our members for its attractive design and ease of navigation, as well as easing the burden on the volunteers who run our organisation by automating many processes previously handled manually. I cannot recommend Considered Creative highly enough for anyone seeking a top-notch online presence.Lisa Firth – Website Coordinator, RNA
Members’ subscriptions are handled through a third party system called Ochre which was already in place when we joined the project. This takes payments and handles renewals and acts as a gateway system for the members only content on the website. We integrated the Ochre API into the members area for authentication and to restrict specific content based on the member’s membership level.
Within the members’ area, members can submit content to the website. Whether it’s a book release or an event, the posts are generated automatically and administrators are notified so that the content can be edited and approved before appearing on the live website. This has streamlined the existing process and helped to make the member-generated content on the site more consistent.
The RNA Learning area imports events directly from the RNA’s preferred ticketing service, Eventbrite, again cutting down this process and avoiding the duplication of content in multiple places.
