The website was built for Let’s Cook Scotland, a small cookery school in Central Scotland. It allows customers to book and purchase courses online, purchase and redeem bespoke gift vouchers and has a management area for the business owner which not only allows to view/add/amend course attendees but provides an overall view of the popularity of the various courses and other business information.
The site was built over 7 months and uses Web Apps, Events module, Blog, bespoke gift voucher system and Event booking purchase.
The biggest challenge for the designer was to provide the correct information for the business owner when a customer books (name, mobile, email, allergy and names of other attendees) and to integrate a bespoke gift voucher system with the course booking and payment process. Liquid has made this achievable.
“We have been working with BC since 2011 and chose the platform in the first instance due to the integration of a website with a CMS, a basic CRM, Email Marketing and E-Commerce. We have been excited with the addition of liquid coding which makes the platform hugely customizable making a site like Let's Cook Scotland possible.” (Steve Johnson, Graphite Web Solutions)
A piece of advice for beginners, from the designer of Let’s Cook Scotland: “If you have just started using BC the best advice is to just dive in and practice with it - the fact you can create a trial site and play around with it is hugely beneficial and is great for learning. You also need to engage with the community on LinkedIn, the forums, the Facebook page, BC Sandpile, BC Gurus and BC Academe - there is a huge community of people willing to help and answer questions so don't be shy!”
Graphite Web Solutions is a small agency in Scotland that has been building websites for 10 years and has been using BC since 2011.
