Sparfacts is a nationwide retail marketing agency based in Australia. With a wide span of footprint, their old website was not adding much wood to the fire, the maintenance and cost for nursing the old website was a silent reputational butcher and the need of the hour was to have a new robust website which ticks all the essential boxes missing on the previous website.

Challenge & Objectives

Our team was committed and completely in alignment with website goals the client was looking to hit from this facelift. To be-little the major challenges of maintenance we aimed to build this website with Wordpress CMS where they can have less leverage on us in the future for altering the media & content of their website. The plan was to make them more independent!

With a custom theme integration and few advanced plugins to back the quintessential features of the website, our team laid out a new website for their brand. The site is now lucid, mobile responsive, minimalistic & aesthetically pleasing which is exactly what the client was looking for since ages.

24 Country Specific Sites

Next was to create the suite of local sites, each tailored to the country of business, including expertly translated local languages. In some instances multiple languages were required, so we made use of WPML, which allows users to switch.

These sites share many features with the group site, but also have an array of additional custom functionality, including:

Frontend
Backend

Multi-Device Bespoke Design

Technology & Plugins

Besides WordPress Multisite, we implemented Gravity Forms for form data management and personalisation. These forms were also integrated with Campaign Manager for easy email list management.

We used the Google Maps API to create the global locations and stockist map. Whilst we used WPML to handle country sites which required the ability to switch between multiple languages.
