Nashville Pride launched a new Website today, www.nashvillepride.org, just in time to kick off the 2007 Pride Festival season (the 2007 Nashville Pride Festival – “Free to be ME” – is set for June 2 at Centennial Park).
The site, designed by SBResults of Hermitage, features a top header with random photos from the 2006 pride festival (by Richard Harman, courtesy of Out & About Newspaper and InsideOut Nashville), as well as a community calendar, photo gallery, a ‘donate now button’, as well as all the necessary forms – marketplace, sponsorship, food vendor, scholarship, and media kit.
There are also sections for visitor information, the board of directors, and current sponsors.
“We are ecstatic that SBResults has designed such a fabulous Website for us,” said Todd Grantham, Nashville Pride, Inc., president. “It is a tool that we’ll be able to use to help market Nashville Pride to potential sponsors. It’s also a great information site for the community, and will serve to increase our fundraising efforts.”
More than 100 programming hours have gone into designing the new site, said Lane Scoggin with SBResults.
Scoggin said the site has been exclusively designed as a “content management” site so that the pride committee can manage their site from any computer with no special software. The site will allow them to upload photos to the photo gallery, manage the events calendar, forms, sponsors, and board of directors.
“All of that is now something they can manage themselves to keep the site current,” Scoggin said. “Previous sites were beautiful and well designed, but the committee was not able to maintain the large amount of evolving information, so the site quickly became outdated.”
Grantham said the site “really showcases what Nashville Pride is all about”.
“It’s about our community involvement, our volunteers and our sponsors who support us,” he said. “Our new Website totally reflects who we are.”
“Lane and Shane with SBResults have been incredible to work with,” Granthan said. They have done a fantastic job and have been so creative in coming up with a site that represents who this organization is.”
