Rainbow Run Multi Colour WordPress Site Launch

Posted on February 24, 2015

WordPress Site Launch - The Rainbow RunTo say things have been busy around here is an understatement – we’ve been running around like headed chickens, multi tasking, developing WordPress sites, repairing sites, SEO-ing sites and in general just being busier than ever before (hence the radio silence on the blog lately). One site that we’ve recently spruced up and relaunched is the RainbowRun.ie site – a site for “Ireland’s Most Colourful 5k Fun Run”. This is a brand name and run that is known to lots of people as it’s in it’s 3rd year now and has been a huge success over the last few years with thousands of people taking part.

The site itself is straightforward and to the point. If you want information about the run you can find it there and if you want buy tickets for the RainbowRun then you’re in luck. The event ticketing system is powered by a simple iFrame embed for Eventbrite which means then that all the customer details can be easily exported and processed for ticket management etc on the day – with thousands of people running it’s quite an organisational feat and having easy access to this info is key.

SEO wise the site does very well and as expected is in top spot for it’s branded terms. It’s also high ranker for terms like “fun run Ireland” which is really what helps to broaden out the targeted organic traffic funnel. Since launch traffic to the site has been through the roof and so hopefully Rainbow Run 2015 will be the biggest and best yet.

As you can see from the photos it really is a colourful event and so the gallery is used to display all the vibrancy, life and enjoyment that the run has created in previous years with an Instagram integration and nice HD video. Nothing like some smiling, happy people to sell some tickets :)

If you’re interested in taking part, or just checking out our handiwork, head on over to RainbowRun.ie and enjoy. If you think I may be able to help you with a site of your own, then get in touch.
