Background Information

Restaurant owners John and Tina approached 1st on the List in May 2021 to build a brand-new WordPress E-commerce website for their Afterthoughts gourmet dessert restaurant. They had recently received a Launch Online Grant from the BC Government that was designated to build an e-commerce website to reach more customers and sell their whole baked goods online. Their existing three-page website not only lacked the ability to order online but it was also built in GoDaddy and had little SEO impact.

Afterthoughts had also moved locations within the last few years and needed to revamp their Google Business Listing with newer exterior and interior photos of their restaurant.

Solution

Our web designers provided a major upgrade from the existing GoDaddy hosted website with a fully customized E-commerce Website complete with stunning client-provided professional photography.

The gourmet dessert restaurant’s easy to browse online shop not only helps to increase sales but also streamlines Afterthought’s process for taking orders. Up until the launch of this new website the Afterthoughts staff had to manually take dessert orders over the phone or in person, which took up their time and proved difficult during various stages of the pandemic. Now, with the click of a few buttons, customers can order a cheesecake and Afterthoughts staff can easily track and fill these orders.

In the coming months our Local SEO team will also be shooting a Google 360 Virtual Tour of the new Afterthoughts gourmet dessert restaurant, which will be uploaded to their Google My Business listing and used on the website. This virtual tour will pay great dividends as new customers can visualize the restaurant and plan ahead for their visit. It is also important as the new virtual restaurant tour will help replace and downplay old, uploaded images of their previous location.

Congratulations Afterthoughts – we hope to visit you soon!
