John Dooley is an elite PGA golf professional and an elite golfing coach that also precisely repairs broken clubs.

He already had a website but it wasn’t fit for purpose, it had become old-fashioned, it was awkward for users to navigate and it just didn’t resonate with the high-quality brand that John Dooley PGA is.

Our Approach For John Dooley PGA Golf Professional

  • After a few conversations and meeting with John, we had a very clear idea of the style of website he wanted. We used this information and designed a home page that reproduced the look and feel he was going for aesthetically while also incorporating the information that users are most interested in clearly. John was happy with the home page design and approved it.
  • We then designed 3 general content pages for John’s core services, based on the approved home page design. After some back and forth and changing some small details, those designs were also approved and we began coding the site.
  • To make it easy for potential customers to get in contact with John, we added the usual contact forms with the fields he requested. We then added extra functionality for a live chat feature.
  • We developed a blog page with 3 main sections; golf commentary, golf repairs and golf swing tips.
  • We conducted keyword research and used it to determine whether the best course of action would be to carry across the metadata from the old site or to completely optimise it based on our findings. We decided a mix of both would work best in this instance.
