Community Portal

When a website needs to engage a whole community:

1. Know the audience. Surprising discoveries come from existing analytics— in this case, smartphone penetration in a remote rural community was much higher than expected, resulting in a whole different approach to the site.
2. Speak the language. While English may be dominant in business, it's not the primary language in every community. The web can reach non-English speakers and help to preserve native languages.
3. Actively engage. By budgeting for routine updates, a website can remain relevant and keep the community engaged with fresh content, stories, resources.

At the same time, we launched our first site on Webflow's fantastic high-speed hosting. The result has been an accessible editing interface for the client, and reliable hosting for all.
