In November of 2010 I launched a new website for the New Hampshire Association of Residential Care Homes (NHARCH) for FirstTracks Marketing Group. As Interactive Media Director at FirstTracks Marketing Group my role in this project was extensive. I helped write and produce the proposal that got us the project. Then I worked with the board of Directors and the Management company for NHARCH to develop what the feature set and functionality as well as what the new design of the website was going to be.
Working with NHARCH we developed an integrated database plan and system using the Joomla CMS as the backbone of the new site. The new site features a lot of dynamic JQuery integration that runs TabPanels, Image Sliders, Accordion Panels and even the main residence search component for the site. We packed a lot of information and data into this new site, but we designed it in a way that makes it easy for the user to quickly get in and get what they need.
Plus for the NHARCH organization and it’s members they now have a way to involve all of their active members in the website with their new members only login portal where members can manage their facility profile details, submit new job openings and even upcoming events. All of this new information and activity has resulted in a massive search engine boost for the organization and they are now appearing on the first page of Google search results for key terms such as NH Assisted Living. Needless to say the first month of operation of the new site has been a great success.
