Client: Foster Chamber of Commerce
Information Finalist at the ANZIA internet awards 2011!
Instead of using a Council grant for printing old fashioned brochures to promote the town, the Foster Chamber decided instead to commission Loud Mountain to create and maintain a website which would be an ongoing form of promotion, a community asset and of course much more environmentally friendly.
The most important aspect of the development of the not-for-profit website was to create a business directory which funds the ongoing maintenance. Businesses can submit their listings online or via paper form.
A noticeboard was required for important information to locals as well as day visitors (recently used for flood and fire information).
Business listings, events calendar, classified ads, users can upload content/business listing info etc, community noticeboard, latest posts, featured posts/listings are highlighted, Google Adsense ads management, blog facility for organisations, full CMS administration documentation.
Technical: HTML5, CSS2, Loud Mountain web hosting, @fontface fonts, 2 x custom post types, search engine optimised

Terrific ‘beta’ presentation and we’ll all need to promote it whenever possible.

Well, I think you and your team should be congratulated on a job well done! This website covers a lot of content and looks fabulous…and it will certainly help us keep up to date on things when we move to NZ!
