Members of any community group or small nonprofit organization can tell you that the related costs for website hosting and website design can be out of reach for them. Add to that the fact that it can be difficult to find somebody from within the group who has the required skills to make it happen, and it's no wonder that many groups don't have a web presence.
BilltownPride.com seeks to change that. Our local communities need this service, and that's the goal of this website. While social media sites such as Facebook can be a powerful tool, they do not reach those who do not use them. Some people only use phones, email, and web browsers to stay connected and attain information. Considering the growing number of people who are "unplugging" from social media, if you don't have a website, you're missing out on a sizeable number of folks.
If you only need a website that's hosted and designed, that can be provided at no charge. If you need more services than that (dedicated organizational email, office apps, business phone line that rings your existing cell phone, etc), we can work out that cost together.
For an example of how this works, click on the West Branch Pride Fest at the top of the page (in the side menu on mobile devices). Each group will have its own subdomain. Website traffic for one group will raise awareness of, and increase traffic for, the other groups that are hosted on BilltownPride.com.
By having your own subdomain, your site can be built according to your desires. This allows for extra creativity and more options regarding features. If you already have a person(s) who have some experience and can take care of your content additions, you can do that as well. The bottom line: Having a web presence in this day and age is crucial.
Community and teamwork...that's the only way that anything gets accomplished. Join us! Let's do something special...Together!
