Edward Thomas was a British poet, essayist, and novelist. The Edward Thomas Fellowship was founded in 1980 to celebrate and foster interest in his life and works.
McGinn & Dolphin were approached by the Chairman of The Edward Thomas Fellowship in October 2018 to redesign their existing website to reach a wider audience, and to make it easier for committee members to add updates. Working within a WordPress framework, which the chairman had prior knowledge of, McGinn & Dolphin created a simple to use, easy to update and manage website for the Fellowship. The solution adds a mobile responsive layout which makes it easier for users to navigate and view on both mobile and tablet devices.
Within the first month of the site going live new visits increased by 30% with average unique viewing times to the site recorded at over 3 minutes. The new site continues to provide rich and meaningful content for Fellowship member’s. We continue to work on the site to cement it’s position as a number one online resource for Edward Thomas literature.
