If your agency deals in property development, you’ll be happy to hear Siteloft supports projects.
If you add ‘/projects/’ to the end of your URL your new (empty) projects archive page will appear. Don’t worry if your agency isn’t engaged in project marketing. No-one will find this page until you add it to your website’s menu in WordPress. Until then it’s our little secret.
Let’s take a look at a populated projects archive page:
‘Current’, ‘Future’ and ‘Complete’ projects are organised under their respective stages. This makes for easy navigation for your buyers – projects available now will be at the top, while past projects will be stored at the bottom.
You have two options here. As well as the above version, you can choose to only show one image:
No one project is the same. So rather than deciding how your project pages should look for you, we let you tailor them to suit.
To do so, we’ve built a project page builder into WordPress. You start off with a blank canvas, and then you can organise certain elements to suit.
First off – add your:
- Project name,
- Key details,
- Development logo,
- Brand colour,
- Current stage and
- A description of its status (i.e. under construction, currently selling, etc).
Once all that’s filled in – it’s time for you to let your inner web developer out.
We’ve created a few different content blocks for you to add and organise as you see fit.
This is one of our signature text blocks – just like you’d find on any other page. You can insert as many of these as you like for a number of purposes. Whether that be copy, an embedded video, a button – you get the idea.
Obviously when selling property there’s nothing more important than a lot of quality imagery. As well as the property gallery that you’ve populated above, you might like to include some photographs or renderings directly on the page. You can add images in full or half width.
What would a project page be without an enquiry method? All of the Siteloft forms (as well as your own custom ones) can be included.
If you’re offering downloadable content – PDF floorplans and brochures, virtual tours, etc – you can add links for potential clients to grab these materials straight from the project page.
Lastly, you have the option to link out to all your associates. Property developers, construction agencies, architecture firms – whichever illustrious characters and companies you’ve been doing business with can all be included too.
The final result
We’ve put together an example page on Tyson for you to check out here.
