Candlelight Tour Of Homes 2015! A Long-Standing Tourist Attraction, Now In A Mobile Friendly Site With Map Sharing, WooCommerce And More!

A long-standing tradition in the city of Jefferson, Texas, the annual Candlelight Tour Of Homes event has been a beautiful holiday extravaganza highlighting the historic homes and rich culture of the city. Each home owner that volunteers must meet strict requirements for the amount of candlelight used during the evening tour hours along with specific amounts of live greenery, trees, and all homes and tour locations provide docents dressed in period costumes to guide visitors.

Google Map Sharing ImplementationGTR has proudly served the Historic Jefferson Foundation (HJF) now for over three years. Our goal this year was to provide HJF with an updated WordPress website that now meets all Google standards for mobile friendliness/responsiveness for all mobile platforms. This year we also made great use of Google’s map sharing so now visitors can preview each site location and even use their mobile apps to guide them on their walking tours with street directions!

WooCommerce Ticket Sales ImplementationAs ticket sales have been modernized and the Candlelight Tour Of Homes has been reaching a wider audience, we needed to make record-keeping and end-user sales a breeze, so this year, WooCommerce was implemented and the client has been able to track visitors and buyers now with more accuracy and can even cross-reference sales with their linked Paypal account.
