BRIEF

Modernizing a web presence that highlights important, hard hitting information for the public

EMPact America has always been dedicated to providing important information to the public, therefore a web presence that is easy to manage, engage with, and share information from was a vital next step in their company’s journey. Before partnering with Newbird, EMPact America struggled with a proprietary hard to update system, content organization that was not user friendly, and lacked the ability for users to easily share the robust information throughout the website.

Newbird collaborated with EMPact America to design and develop a new website built within a WordPress framework. Both design and content focus was aimed and bringing more awareness to the public through educational elements. Newbird also developed an extensive news section which not only integrated the latest updates by EMPact America themselves, but also the latest tweets driven by specific keywords EMPact America set. Users now also have the power to easily share both materials and events to social media directly from the EMPact America website.
