To be successful in the 21st Century, most businesses and non-profits need a presence on the Web. That’s a given. Because of that, most organizations will get a Website of some kind. For most of them, the experience will be expensive, painful, and will end with them having more of a nuisance than a business asset.
How often do you visit a Website, only to find outdated information? Or dead links? Or pictures of employees long since moved on? Or a calendar with events for three years ago?
This is a common problem. A company or non-profit contracts a design firm to build a Website. The organization pays the money, the design firm builds the site. The site goes live, and people start to visit. But then the fun starts. Usually, no one in the company or non-profit knows how to keep the site updated with fresh content. Things change, new business opportunities arise.Times Change, your Website needs to keep up...
But the Website stays the same. Because to get updates to it means forking over $80.00 an hour to some developer, and hoping that it all gets done right. Which, frankly, often doesn’t happen.
The whole thing is a hassle - an expensive hassle. Which means most companies just don’t bother to try and keep their sites updated. That's a shame, because their Websites never fully achieve the desired results.
Corfun has a completely different approach. Our mission is to make your Web presence a vital, integral part of your business strategy. We pursue this mission in the following ways:
We work with you to design a system that can meet your needs as you identify them today. After in-depth consultation and discussion, we combine your knowledge of your core business with our online expertise to produce a Web solution that takes your business to the next level.
Corfun uses Content Management System architecture which allows non-technical resources to learn how to publish content to their own Websites as easily as typing an email. Each of our Websites includes training which will enable your staff to keep your site updated. You can now use the Web as an immediate marketing and sales channel, without the need of external consultants!
The Content Management System can be easily expanded in the future to do more things. Say you start out with a simple eCommerce site that sells a line of products. A year later, you decide to add a Discussion Forum to allow customers to discuss and rate the various products you sell. In a Content Management System, you keep the basic structure of the site and just add-in a new Discussion Forum component which fits right into the site you already have!
But, you may ask, if it is so easy why do we offer Website management services? Simple – not every business or non-profit has an internal resource(s) with the time to be a Webmaster. For that reason, Corfun offers the option of allowing us to either take over, or assist in, the management of client Websites. And because of the Content Management System architecture we use, our management services can be offered at a very reasonable price.
