Propex Featured

Propex are in the business of traders. They bankroll, train, mentor and house traders, taking on both experienced traders and trainee level traders.

They needed a website redesign; moving some of their content from the old website and creating frequent new content.

Propex staff write daily stock market reports, so they needed a solution that let multiple authors easily create content with simple image upload features and ability to add YouTube videos.

Propex also wanted to get their content onto their social media streams. They had a small following and wanted to increase their audience.

Mobile compatibility for their website was not a priority for Propex, but in the interest of the longevity of their site, I factored this into the project.

My solution for Propex included K2 for Joomla, an easy-to-use content creator that extended on standard Joomla articles. It allows multiple authors to create content with accompanying images, image galleries and embedded video and sound, all on the one screen.

All of the image compression happens in the background, and the text content is optimised for optimum search engine indexing.

I also configured automatic posting of new content to their Facebook Page and Twitter stream, using a custom Facebook app and Twitter app that utlised the API of both social media sites.

On a daily basis, the final website solution handles mountains of content, prepares it for excellent SEO, and distributes it to their social presence automatically (preventing double handling and saving hours of time a week).
