Center for Interfaith Action on Global Poverty Grows Web Presence
CIFA worked with Blue Water Media to update its website and substantially increase its presence online
Washington, DC (June 10, 2010) – The Center For Interfaith Action on Global Poverty enthusiastically announces an improved website and expanded web presence as a result of its partnership with web design firm, Blue Water Media. The upgrade includes new online donation and member login features, an interactive blog, a document exchange system, a message board, search engine optimization, and the award-winning Joomla content management system. These improvements help CIFA more effectively achieve its mission to strengthen the capacity and effectiveness of the faith community in the collective effort to reduce global poverty and disease.
The upgraded website is more visually pleasing and user friendly. Thanks to the streamlined homepage, CIFA’s target audience of inter-religious faith leaders, governments, and members of the community both domestically and abroad, are better able to find what they are looking for easily. The catchy high-quality images throughout the site endow it with a bright, energetic, and professional feel. These elements solidify CIFA’s trusted reputation and compel visitors to learn more about the organization, its projects, and partners as well as feel inspired to talk and write about its work.
Various new features of the website are specifically aimed to further encourage user interaction. The online donor feature makes it easier than ever to support the foundation. The interactive blog, message board, document exchange system, and member login capacity encourage visitors to engage with the site on a regular basis thus building loyalty, personal involvement, and a sense of connection to the organization and its mission.
Blue Water Media’s implementation of the award-winning content management system, Joomla, enables CIFA staff to continuously update the site independently, as new projects take off and relevant news and promotional events occur. Additionally, the search engine optimization will help drive site traffic and maximize brand recognition. As a result of the improvements implemented by Blue Water Media, CIFA will better attract potential donors, partners, media, and governments to its worthy cause and progress toward becoming a household name among development and faith-based institutions worldwide.
