Dr. McCracken needed a website to advertise her availability as an independent consultant to work with community organisations and businesses and to speak at events on topics related to her research. Her website was built in WordPress and features a background image from her recent book entitled Street Sex Workers’ Discourse. There is a three-column layout on the home page, which presents information about contacting her, her latest book, and her recent talks. The site links to the social media channels the author uses, contains embedded audio and video of her appearances on TV and radio, and a contact form since the author had privacy concerns and did not want to list her email address.
“I can’t believe how quickly Local Latitude designed my website and it looks so good! I had a very tight deadline and they met it, while at the same time meeting my last minute request to feature an image from my book on the background of my site. In addition to this, they did a great job optimising my site for search engines. Within just a few weeks my brand new website was coming up on page 1 of Google search results when someone searched for my name. You can’t beat that!”
