The Bach Doctor Press

INTRODUCTION

The Bach Doctor Press is a boutique New Zealand publishing house, dedicated to publishing and promoting kiwi voices and stories.

Darin Dance is passionate about books and the written word, and especially those that tell stories rooted here in Aotearoa. It has become his mission to promote our unique kōrero and pakiwaitara (stories and legends).

CREATIVE BRIEF

When Darin approached Turboweb he already had a website which contained many of the elements needed to make a great website – they just weren’t working well together. Additionally, the platform that the site was built on meant that the whole thing was difficult to maintain and update. It was supposedly a 'free' website, but he was finding that it was actually costing him a lot.

He asked us to redesign and rebuild his website so it was basically the same … but better! 

WEBSITE

Darin and the Turboweb team took a look at the content on the Bach Doctor Press website and brainstormed which elements worked, which didn’t, and how they would flow best on the new website.

The colours, logo, and basic design of the original site was conserved, meaning that the graphic design costs were kept to an absolute minimum for this project. The look and feel of the site is designed to act as a clean, fresh backdrop for the books that they are currently promoting, so a minimalist look was perfect for this.

CUSTOM DEVELOPMENT

Turboweb built the Bach Doctor Press website on our newly upgraded website platform, making it super easy for Darin to edit and update the website himself. 

The website has a shopping cart for people to purchase books directly from the site, and payments are handled through integration with Stripe. 

The publishing house’s mailing list has a sign-up form on the website, and this integrates directly with Mailchimp for easy, secure newsletter and email-list management.

My 'free' website I had built using another provider was expensive to run, cumbersome and didn't work to enhance my business. For my new site, I wanted to use a Kiwi company that had a great track record.
I was initially worried that by outsourcing the website development, what I wanted might get compromised along the way, but that wasn't my experience with Turboweb. They answered all my questions in plain English, were easy to work with, gave timely responses, and were very cost effective.
I'd happily recommend Turboweb’s efficient friendly team anytime.
