Websites: Design+Develop+Deploy

Your website is an easily accessible connection directly to your credit union—a digital front door, if you will. And just like a building, the more doorways your credit union has, the easier it is for folks to find an entrance, come on in and find out more about your products, services, culture and benefits.

But enough with the talk. Let’s check out a real-world example. Meet Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union and take a look at all of the doorways we’ve built leading into their credit union.

As you’ve probably gathered, we’re a soup-to-nuts web shop for credit unions. Anything you want, we make it happen with in-house designers and developers and a proven process that ensures quality, best practices and compliance regulations are held to the highest standards. Our website process is effectively simple: design, develop, deploy.

Design

Our philosophy is that we take nothing for granted and assume nothing. Visually, we design from your brand out. Navigationally, we start from the way a user thinks and searches. And cognitively, we design from the standpoint of how best to inform and sell your products.

It’s time for a moment of truth. Credit unions, as a rule, are a pretty conservative group. There’s nothing we can’t design and develop, provided you’re okay with not looking like every other credit union out there.

Our cutting edge website solutions are always a co-creation with our clients. We start by inviting the client team to join us as we work through a holistic exercise to make certain we achieve every website launch objective you have.

And, trust me. We ask some difficult questions. It can be uncomfortable. But it’s better to be honest now than sorry later.

Then you’ll show us websites you love and share what makes them so appealing to you. We’re not talking your competitors’ websites. We’re talking companies with design as one of their core principles (one of the best sites we’ve developed was inspired by Patagonia, for example). From there, we build the foundation for your website, keeping in mind your brand’s unique personality and voice.

Develop

After 22+ years of credit union experience, we talk the talk. Literally. When we develop content, we:

  • Understand what verbiage triggers disclosures
  • Recognize how to present ALA rates and the difference between fixed and variable rates
  • Distinguish the contrast between savings products
  • Utilize our expertise on how a credit union typically positions their different products and services

As part of our development process, we conduct full-blown ADA, Compliance and SEO audits to ensure your site is going to work as hard as it can for as many folks as it can; that auditors will stay off your back; and that your credit union will show strongly in organic search results for the key products you’re most heavily promoting.

The credit union world is always evolving. To keep you ahead of the curve, we develop within a flexible, easily customizable Content Management System (CMS). Your team can go in anytime and effortlessly make updates without breaking a sweat.

Deploy

If advanced encryption is a cat, then we’re a full-blown lion. We offer Hosting/Proactive Management Services in a fully secure, fully redundant server environment, inclusive of SOC I SSAE 16 technology to provide the most secure user experience for your members and visitors.

We can also assemble first-rate, ethical SEO strategies prepped for your site’s launch. From day one, we’ll be putting a robust program in place to facilitate high organic results rankings across multiple search engines for products and services that are most critical to your credit union’s strategic plan.

Once your site is live, we use advanced analytics to review visitor habits, gauge effectiveness of calls to action and optimize for user engagement.
