Website Design for the Wounded Warriors Family Support
By Troy Kadavy | Feb 26, 2012
92 West has proudly been working with the Wounded Warriors Family Support for the past 2 years and we were fortunate enough to take part in the redesign of their new website utilizing ExpressionEngine!
The primary function of the site is to produce awareness of their cause, encourage donations to support wounded warriors and their families and also create an easy to use website so soldiers and their families can apply for the Wounded Warriors Family Support services. We also incorporated key SEO strategies that automatically create search engine friendly pages which leaves their staff open to create content without the worry on how this effects their page rank.
The internal posting structure of the CMS was developed to allow their staff, and 92 West if needed, to efficiently post an article or point of interest once and allow it to automatically populate in each area needed. We then had their news / events connected to Facebook and Twitter so each post will actually feed their social media without having to duplicate those efforts as well.
The results… well they were awesome and the site continues to get accolades from their donors and people who are new to the organization.
