OBX Media helps entrepreneurs build a brighter future.

Historic Ocracoke Hotel

Outer Banks Media (OBX Media), a North Carolina-based digital marketing agency specializing in website design, search engine optimization and internet marketing, announces the website launch for their client, Blackbeard’s Lodge. Established in 1936 as the Wahab Village Hotel, Blackbeard’s Lodge is located on the remote barrier island of Ocracoke, North Carolina, and is the oldest operating lodge on the Island.

The most historic hotel in Ocracoke, Blackbeard’s Lodge is within walking distance of village restaurants, gift shops and attractions. Each of their 36 guest rooms, suites and apartments offer its own distinct character and historic charm and hospitality. For Lodge owners Chip and Helena Stevens, they wanted a website that mirrored the charm and history that the property itself so proudly carried. “Our website was in need of an overhaul,” said Helena. “We wanted to improve the look and feel of our site, including pictures of the rooms and apartments along with the ability to easily find accommodations that matched customer requirements,” she added.

OBX Media worked with Chip and Helena to review their existing site to determine which features they favored and which aspects of the site they wanted to refresh. “Design and navigation are two very important pieces of site development,” said C.K. Evans, Owner of Outer Banks Media. “The Stevens were very decisive on what they wanted to see in the new site, but were also open to listening to ideas we had that would improve site usability and performance,” Evans added. Increasing the number of images on the site was a priority, giving visitors an idea of the rooms and property itself. They also built the pages for the rooms to include multiple pictures along with a description, and a filtering feature so visitors could sort available accommodations based on specific features (such as pet-friendly, floor level, or bed size). Guests also have the option of reserving rooms online and even sharing on social media.
