How happy_jon started their web page design journey

Company name

Kangaroo Inn

Overview

We are new accomodation type due to open in Perth, Western Australia. We are a cross between a hotel, a guesthouse and a youth hostel/backpackers. We offer the cleanliness and comfort of a hotel, the homely and friendly service of a guesthouse with the social atmosphere of a youth hostel. Image of fun, social, youthful & sophisticated place to stay, yet we do not want to convey it as a party hostel. It is our intent to attract people who are at the more sophisticated end of the budget accommodation market (ie people who like to chill as opposed to getting drunk and wasted).

BRAND POSITIONING STATEMENT
To young independent travellers between 25 and 35, Kangaroo Inn is the
Australian budget accommodation of choice
OFFERING:
Safe, private and clean rooms, with great common facilities as well as friendly
helpful staff
WHICH IS GOOD BECAUSE:
It offers customers a comfortable place to stay and socialise offering a memorable
experience.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

WEBSITE OBJECTIVES

1. DRIVE NEW VISITORS
o How?
 Website developed with SEO in mind; eg minimal flash.
 Easy to navigate

2. DRIVE TRIAL
o How?
 Booking and Internet Payment Capability
 Provide details of the hotel, rooms, and locality
 Have snippets of reviews
 Links to third-party review sites

3. DRIVE REPEAT VISIT AND BOOKINGS:
o How?
 Blog
 Homepage specials

Clients will be a combination of overseas visitors (Asia, Europe, Americas) as well as local from regional Western Australia and Interstate travellers from Sydney, Melbourne etc.

Most of our visitors will be tourists and to a lesser extent students (short-mediumterm stay) and possibly budget business people. We will be mainly targeting the 25-35 age bracket, although there will also be younger and older visitors.

Since we are an accomodation hybrid we want to change people's exepctations when staying with us. We want to reinforce positive perceptions and change negative perceptions and our website needs to convey this.

For instance, positive perceptions of hostels are as follows:
inexpensive, well located, friendly, youthful, social.

Negative perceptions of hostels:
Uncomfortable, No privacy, Noisy, cramped
