Gold Coast Business News
Gold Coast Business News is the region's leading independent business magazine. The monthly magazine keeps Gold Coast business people up to date with reports on the latest business news, events and opportunities, as well as interesting profiles of local developments, companies and business leaders. With it's presence in the business community strengthening, Gold Coast Business News needed a great website to complement the magazine, as well as the ability to make the magazine content available online for its web-savvy audience.
Like most businesses, Gold Coast Business News needed a site that was both attractive and functional. It was important that the site was an extension of the magazine, that it matched the magazine's professional 'look and feel', and was simple, user-friendly and searchable.
As well as this, the site needed to contain a complete archive of all past articles from the magazine and the stories from the current issue. The article archive had to be self-managed so the team at Gold Coast Business News could upload and manage all of their articles themselves quickly and easily.
