Discover a little bit about Amanda
Amanda Owen is The Yorkshire Shepherdess: a hill-farmer, mother of nine, writer and photographer. Amanda leads an extraordinary life and it’s become the subject of the Channel 5 documentary series Our Yorkshire Farm. Living 1,800ft above sea level in a remote farmhouse, she and her husband juggle farm life ‘at the sharp end’ with raising a small tribe of children (alongside a large flock of 1,000 sheep).
Amanda is unfazed by most challenges; she takes tough working conditions, isolation and extreme weather in her stride - but as a self-confessed ‘techno-phobe’, she was daunted by the prospect of redesigning her ‘rubbish’* website. A chance meeting with her regional it’seeze consultant Rob Davies gave Amanda the opportunity to hand over this task - and tick one important thing off her never ending ‘to do’ list.
* we didn’t say this, her husband Clive did!
Unfortunately, her existing site was a little like a classifieds listing for her holiday lets and did next to nothing to promote her growing Yorkshire Shepherdess brand. With 90K Twitter followers and a growing number of enquiries for public appearances to respond to, Amanda needed a central hub to tie everything together and make it easier to manage. So, armed with Amanda’s amazing photography and Rob’s list of ‘must-haves’, our it’seeze designers went to work.
We created a warm, welcoming website with spaces devoted to Amanda’s life, her farming, her writing, her photography, her holiday accommodation business and her public speaking activities. It all combines to provide Amanda and her amazing story with an authentic online voice.
