Web Page for Client’s Testimonials, Television and Magazine Articles

Using Cool WordPress Functions to Gather Content

Recently, two of our clients were in the enviable position of having so many guest testimonials, television coverage and magazine articles written about them that the current way of displaying them on their websites just not flattering enough. In both instances, we created blog posts describing the article – testimonial – television coverage. We added images from the medium, added links to the article or episode and links to the publisher. Using JetPack, the blog post then posted to social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. This is a great way to let fans and followers know when a new article or testimonial has been written about the lodging property.

So what’s the issue?

New blog posts push down older posts. So how does one assemble all of these great articles in one place where a potential guest researching a property can learn about them? Using WordPress categories and the blog shortcode functionality of the Avada theme, we created a web page that gathers all blog posts about articles – testimonials – television coverage about the lodging property. We created a post category called “Media”. Then, we edited blog posts about testimonial – articles – television coverage and added Media as category of the post. We created a new webpage called “Magazine Articles” for the Weatherby’s website and “Featuring Lopstick!” for the Cabins at Lopstick website.

Now anytime a new blog post is written about a new magazine article and it is categorized under “Media” the post will auto-populate in the webpage. Pretty cool, huh!
