Upgrading your website?

Many of our clients have come to us looking to upgrade the look of their site, or want the ability to have more control over content updates and maintain it themselves. Others have lost their webmaster or are unhappy with their current service provider. In most cases, the client is too small for the service provider, or the service provider is too small for the client. Either way, they are not receiving the support they expect or deserve.

Here are a few examples of some of the updates we’ve done recently.

South March Highlands

South March Highlands needed a new solution that would allow multiple contributors to update content. However, since most are volunteers, it had to be easy to use by people with limited experience.

We developed the site using our Content Management System (CMS) and divided the home page down into separate content areas. This provided the ability to highlight various aspects of the coalation, ie. News, Events, Campaigns, etc. These content areas cycle through the most recent items, but also allows users to view archives of previous postings.

Social media was also a requirement, so we enabled a live Twitter and Facebook feed as well as hosting their Flickr images from various contributors and members of the community.

Before

  • difficult to maintain and update
  • limited photo gallery
  • no social media integration
  • dated content – needed to be reorganized to better represent the new focus of the coalition

After

  • content management system with easy to use interface for multiple contributors
  • photo/video gallery
  • calendar of events
  • social media integration
