Downtown New Westminster Business Improvement Association

Mugo partner since 2016

The Downtown New Westminster Business Improvement Association represents over 400 businesses. Through its website it offers business profiles, an events calendar, and a deep well of creative content showcasing members of its community.

The Downtown New Westminster Business Improvement Association (Downtown New West BIA) had a five-year-old Joomla website that wasn’t meeting the needs of its audience.

With more than half its traffic coming from mobile devices, the Downtown New West BIA needed a responsive website, a more enticing design to showcase its content, and back-end workflow features that would make it easier for staff and members to submit content, moderate it, and use it to drive traffic.

Mugo developed a new site in eZ Publish for the BIA that enables easy moderation and daily updates, features advanced calendar functions, and integrates with social media channels to showcase content and increase visual appeal.

Custom search with Solr and Ibexa’s native Object Relation Model puts advanced information at users’ fingertips

As your website grows, custom site search becomes an increasingly important way for users to quickly find the information they need.

Here at Mugo Web, we find that most of our clients’ sites evolve to the point that they want to add a custom search feature. They may simply want to provide a more seamless experience for users as they search for that one how-to blog post from seven years ago, or they may want to guide an intricate search and drill down through a scientific taxonomy.

Exploring user journeys in GA4

One of the most helpful uses of website analytics for an ecommerce site is being able to track a user’s journey. Following someone’s path as they enter the site, visit different pages, and reach (or don’t reach) key milestones can tell you a lot about what is working on your site and what isn’t.

Flexibility and scale are key features in new content paywall system

Subscription paywalls are an essential part of any publisher’s strategy to build a strong brand and diversified revenue stream. Our team at Mugo Web has worked with several publishers to implement paywalls based on content type, age, and subscription level. Imagine any criteria you can, and we’ve built a paywall to give site visitors gated access to premium content.

Custom search filter options built into the CMS make for better UI

Your website can have the best data in the world, but it quickly loses value if your users struggle to find it. Solid search features and intuitive filtering options can increase discoverability and lead to more sales. 

We’ve helped several of our partners by creating better solutions for searching to address this issue. Our book publisher clients using the ReaderBound platform have very rich data sets they need to make use of for discoverability, presentation, and sales.
