The new site is almost ready to go, there's just a few final tweaks to be made before the V.1 launch. I'm calling it V.1 because the overall plan is vast and encompasses a great deal of features. We've decided to prioritise them and add to the site as we go along so it should hopefully continue to grow and evolve long after the launch.
For example I'd like to have a charitable aspect to what we are doing in the first release but it requires a great deal of organisation to get set up. It should 'fit' in with the overall theme of the site and our visitors. For this reason the charitable portion of the site will be added at a later date. We're also possibly going to add a merchandising page in a future release to meet the ever growing demand for #flogger branded undergarments.
There's much more I could say here regarding 'what's to come' but lets move on to an issue that requires urgent action. :)
We're adding a new enhanced 'Call The Shot' feature to the website. If you're unsure what this means, please click on the Call The Shot menu page above to have a look. This was a very popular feature amongst golfers and one I'd like to expand upon in the new site. We had a lot of interaction from golfers on Twitter, Facebook and the comments section of the blog when this feature first went live.
I'd like to feature at least two more 'shot scenarios' from two different golf clubs on the new site. In return, the participating clubs will get free promotion on the IBG site, and a link back to their own website. Additionally the features will generate a great deal of debate about how golfers with varying degrees of talent would play the shot and perhaps even encourage golfers to go to the course and play it for real.
Please pass this on if you know a club secretary or manager that might be interested. I believe its a great feature and there is very little effort required on behalf of the club.
If you'd like to get in touch to discuss in detail, please drop me a line info(at)ibleedgolf.com
Thanks and see you around!
