To develop my skills, I decided to create a website and a Facebook page dedicated to my brother’s champagne.
Champagne Alexandre Houssart – Facebook page
Facebook is THE social network, a lot of brands use it and I wanted to know: what’s behind a Facebook Page. My brother already had a profile for his Champagne, but I thought a Page was more accurate to promote his wine. With his agreement, I dedicated my free time to this job.
First I only wrote the posts in French and then I realized English-speaking people were also curious about the wine making process. That is why I decided to write article both in French and in English.
This Facebook page is full of photos that either I or my brother took, but it also contains a few videos I filmed, edited and posted.
Champagne Alexandre Houssart – Website
I created this website using Drupal, a really powerful CMS. Through this website, I wanted to show not only the prices but also the process of making champagne. Moreover, my brother is not only a winegrower, he is a wine service provider so it allows me to write about his choice of career.
These are my roots, I was born surrounded by vineyards and I thought I could exercise my CMS skills by developing the Champagne Alexandre Houssart website.
This online resume
I already had a paper/PDF version of my resume, but I thought a web resume was a good way to show my personal achievements. Besides, I created it in 2 languages: English and French.
I chose to use another CMS: WordPress. This CMS is easier to manipulate, but it can be powerful, and sufficient to create a showcase website.
