This website illustrates a powerful, feature-rich, attractive, and easy-to-use "website template" that can be customized for use by your service agency, association or organization.

To experiment with color options for your website, please click "Admin" at the bottom of this page.

Examples

For examples of agencies that are using this template, please see the Related Agencies [pulldown] in the banner of this website (see above).

Features

This agency template incorporates many features that are desirable in service agency websites -- and these have been tested by years of use in live sites. These features include:

  • a website structure that will support as much content as you want to load -- in convenient and logical "global" categories
  • a website structure that is optimized for indexing by Google and other search engines (see the following examples)
  • a local-site search engine for searching just your website (see upper-right corner)
  • a sitemap, which is updated automatically (and immediately) when a content change is made to any section of your website
  • a "print-friendly" feature (see: Using This Site)
  • integrated linkages to other agency websites that use this template
  • the choice of static or dynamic (changing) logo-images (see upper-left corner of this website for an example of a static image; see site with dynamic images (click "Refresh" to see changes)
  • customized content managers that make it easy for you to add, edit, and delete content on your own website
  • a power-edit option that extends features and control beyond the use of content managers

Benefits

Eye examination.

While the colors, images, and text of your website will become uniquely your own, the "look and feel" of your website will be familiar to anyone who has used another website based on this template. Persons who visit your website -- perhpas being led there by the Related Agencies [pulldown] at the top of a neighboring agency website -- do not have to spend time trying to "learn" to use your website -- and immediately can begin benefitting from your site.

Agency webmasters who use this template and its related tools will be able to help webmasters of other local agencies that use the same template and tools. Webmasters can exchange questions and suggestions among themselves. Even "standardized" content can be shared among websites. (See, for example: Using This Site.)

Costs

All this comes at a very affordable price:

  • a one-time fee of $299 to set up your website with Pierian Press Web Services; and
  • $10.00 per month thereafter for hosting the site.
    Hosting consists of serving your site, providing high-speed Web access to it; backing up your site periodically; and adding new website features and functionality as they are developed. See also "Support", below.

    The features in this website template have cost tens of thousands of dollars and many years to develop and test. You get that functionality in an attractive, feature-rich, and easy-to-use environment for a small fraction of this development cost.

    Support

    Your society webmaster will have access to specialized training materials on the development, use, and maintenance of your site.

    Also, if your webmaster causes a significant problem with your website -- e.g., he/she accidentally deletes or overwrites setup files -- your webmaster will have access to a live person who is trained and dedicated to helping resolve such problems.

    Objective

    As local agencies adapt this website template, the websites of all those agencies will be integrated, resulting in an immensely rich and easy-to-use "hyper"-resource on community services. That is the ultimate objective for developing and making this website template available to you.
