Introducing our new website When it came to developing a website that represented the goals and objectives of the East Texas Woods & Waters Foundation, organization members agreed that the new site needed to be attractive, informative, and easy to update. Sure, we could have elected to use one of many internet sites that offer free web design, but the group needed more. We needed a site that would be easily read from a multitude of available portable devices. In addition, we wanted a site whose maintenance was easily transferred from one member to another without much training.“We realized we needed a specialist team of experts that could not only deliver an industry leading way for us to manage our website now and as it grows, but also that were highly responsive and actively able to make fundamental development modifications to our platform to suit our own needs. “To achieve everything it desired, ETWWF turned to Clever Mutt, LLC, a web applications and design company that specializes in providing custom we software solutions.Clever Mutt’s Tiffani Hill recalls that after learning the “must haves” of the ETWWF committee members during their initial meeting, she was able to determine that the organization could best utilize one of the many professional, responsive Clever Mutt templates for its aesthetics, while still utilizing the user-friendly Clever Mutt Portal Content Management System to make all necessary updates. In their agreement of this assessment, ETWWF was also able to save on the overall expenses of a completely custom designed website.ETWWF members selected a clean, concise design from the library of templates that would feature gallery photographs of the many projects they support in East Texas, while still providing a wealth of information about the organization, its conservation efforts, and its upcoming events. With the selection in place, all that was left was to gather information and photos that best represented the organization and its goals. “Information about current conservation topics is certainly important, but how that information is spread socially is just as important” said Darlene Forshage, committee member. “Every single page can be shared on Facebook individually and our blog serves as a news feed for visitors.”Forshage continues “Giving visitors the tools to share our information was really important to our ongoing mission. Also important is the ability to provide like-minded guests the opportunity to become more actively involved with our organization.”Complete turn-around time for the website project was much quicker since the fundamentals of the site were already in place.
