Project Overview

Grainne approached me with the vision of creating a unique social media-like website, “Songwriter Circle Club,” catering specifically to songwriters. The aim was to offer a membership-based platform where users could engage in songwriting activities, share their work, and connect with fellow musicians.

Objectives and Challenges

The primary goal was to build a platform that not only allowed for social interaction among songwriters but also provided a space for creative collaboration. The challenge lay in crafting a user-friendly interface that mimicked popular social media functionalities while focusing on the niche needs of songwriters.

Design and Execution

  • Landing Page Development: Utilised WordPress to develop a welcoming and informative landing page, enabling visitors to sign up and get in touch with ease.

  • Portal Creation: In the backend, a custom-coded portal was designed. This portal featured monthly songwriting prompts, fostering community engagement and creativity.

  • Social Media Features: Integrated third-party tools like BuddyPress, enabling functionalities such as uploading songs, videos, pictures, and commenting on posts, essentially creating a mini Facebook for songwriters.

  • User Experience: Emphasised on a seamless user experience, mirroring popular social media interfaces to ensure intuitiveness and ease of use.

Outcomes and Reflections

  • Successful Launch: The project was completed in just over 8 weeks, launching successfully without any interface issues.

  • Sustained Performance: Since its inception in 2021, the website has been performing strongly, fostering a vibrant community of songwriters.

  • Client Satisfaction: Grainne has been exceedingly satisfied with the platform, which has served as a unique and engaging space for songwriters to connect and collaborate.
