The Shepparton Show Me and Show MeBay websites have finally gone live.
Mad Web Skills has been responsible for almost every aspect of development for these websites including web design, information architecture, user interface design, database development and php scripting.
The Shepparton Show Me website is running on Mad Web Skills' own cmsharp content management system, so the client was able to update and manage all website content, including file download areas and photo galleries (with a little help from myself to polish up the content and apply some consistent styling). There's a few more areas still to be developed for this website over the coming months, including a weblog and secured password-protected areas for committee memebers to use for internal communication.
Shepparton Show MeBay is a promotional website running under the Shepparton Show Me banner for a couple of weeks. It's an online auction with a difference! Instead of bidding with money, you bid with specially coded Shepparton Show Me Dollars which you can get by shopping locally at participating retailers. Users can then register on the website and redeem these Show Me Dollars into their account balance and use them to bid on some great prizes! (Mad Web Skills is also providing one of the prizes -- domain name, web hosting and weblog for one year!)
This is the first time such a promotion has been run by the Shepparton Show Me Committee so it's a bit experimental. Personally I think it's a great idea and I hope it really takes off and we see it again soon.
Update: The Shepparton Show Me people like to switch up their marketing every few years or so, so unfortunately my design is no longer online.
