The Atlanta Braves recently announced that they will be moving from Turner Stadium in downtown Atlanta to Cobb County just north of Atlanta. This is a very big deal for Cobb County residents! If you are a Cobb resident and you haven’t emailed your support to your commissioner yet, then you should do it today. You can do it here: cobbhomeofthebraves.com
So, you may ask, what does WordPress have to do with the Atlanta Braves? Well, last Monday (11/18), around 6:30pm John Loud of Loud Security called me and said that they will be mentioning the website, cobbhomeofthebraves.com on the 11Alive news. Can we have a website up before then?
Whoa! Fortunately, EYStudios already created a very nice looking landing page for us. WordPress one-click install to the rescue. Within about 90 minutes we were able to create a very nice looking landing page, including a submission form that could email the 5 Cobb Commissioners.
We went live 30 minutes before the news broadcast and in the last 7-8 days we’ve seen the following phenomenal statics:
- Over 6,500 emails sent to Cobb Commissioners in support of the move to Cobb County
- Over 10,000 visits to the website
You still have a chance to win 2017 Braves season tickets (Cobb County residents only). Here is what the final website looks like.
