Here is a selection of my work
I completed the whole website for Ravenscraig House in Staithes in 2018. The project involved designing the information architecture, researching and creating the content and sourcing images. I developed a fully responsive website using WordPress.
I was responsible for the creation of many sections of superbreak.com. Projects involved researching competitors, specifying section structure, briefing page designs and creating content style guidelines around target keywords to ensure the pages were well optimised for search. I worked to optimise the pages further, after they were live to improve core metrics such as conversion rate and bounce rate.
Product detail pages
I conducted customer and competitor research to establish what content to feature and where. I A/B tested various page elements and added TripAdvisor content to improve conversion rate. Finally, I briefed my team to re-write hotel descriptions to improve SEO.
Post on York Mumbler on family friendly walks: Researched keywords and developed a post structure. I then researched and created the content for long-form blog post (6,000 words). The post is optimised for 'family friendly walks in York' and ranks on page 1 of google, driving new traffic to the site.
Site section guide on York Mumbler for Children's Parties: I researched the topic, and analysed the exiting content to develop a post structure to tie the whole section together. I also aimed to create a compelling post for new visitors and a helpful guide for existing visitors and facebook community members.
Researched and written numerous blog posts and top lists, endorsed with recommendations from a facebook group. The example linked (10 brilliant parks & playgrounds in York) is one of the most popular on the site and responsible for driving organic traffic. In 2019, I have written four out of six of the most popular posts on York Mumbler.
I proofread, optimise and publish reviews that go on the York Mumbler site to ensure maximum benefit from the content from an audience, SEO and supplier perspective.
I absolutely love usability testing – I really enjoy watching & listening when people are using websites. Seeing real people use your site is the best way to discover how to improve it.

Travel Insurance for Ski Club of Great Britain
The project was to replace and integrate a new insurance provider. I user tested the current site and made recommendations to the new design. I fully tested the new development and re-tested all issues that had been fixed. Note: Project yet to go live (Nov 2019)
Hotel details page
The product pages on superbreak.com received the most traffic on the site, however the design hadn't been updated for over 5 years and lacked many features. I usability tested prototypes of the new designs with 8 customers and gained valuable input and enhancements that were incorporated into the final development.
Availability search panel
A range of multiple night packages, on specific dates were available on superbreak.com, however data analysis identified a low conversion rates as users were often returned no availability. I remote user tested a prototype of a new calendar design showing the availability and durations. After the changes conversion rate improved by over 50%.
Tested the Hull Trains website across a variety of devices and browsers and reported over 200 issues prior to it going live. Re-tested issues that had been fixed and did a final check of the site on the day it went live.
