Monadnock Family Services Website: The Challenge
Monadnock Family Services needed a website that was easy to work with, optimized well with search engines, connect to social media outlets, accept donations online, and allow them to dynamically relate and manage all their organizational content. Working as the Interactive Media Director for FirstTracks Marketing Group it was my job to plan, manage, design, and implement a solution that would meet the needs of MFS.
The MFS Website Solution:
Using the Joomla open source CMS, FirstTracks built a brand new website for MFS that features the following integrated components:
- Services Database
- Success Stories Database
- Events Calendar Database
- Sponsorship Management Database
- Online Donations
- Homepage Slider Editing Component
- Social Media Sharing Tools using “ShareThis”
The new MFS website features an integrated database design that allows MFS staff to cross-reference their services, events, success stories and sponsorships dynamically. Need to relate a group of specific sponsors with a particular event on the calendar? No problem, simply create the event, load up the logo, and then check off the events where you would like the logo to appear. Success stories work the same way. By themselves these are great pieces of content that share the great work that MFS does. FTMG took these to the next level and provided simple admin controls that let MFS simply check to which services they want the success stories to relate so they show up in the proper sidebar positions throughout the site.
In addition to all the custom database design work FTMG did for MFS we also developed a secure online donation form using Authorize.net and a management component that makes it easy for MFS to track all their online donations. Add to that the full integration with the Joomla CMS website platform and MFS now has a quick, simple and efficient way to manage and publish all of their content online.
