Website Development

fusionSpan brings websites to life through an iterative process that aligns organizational goals to functional demands for your online presence. Our user experience team creates components that surface your content effectively while our creative team elevates your brand. Our technical developers make it all possible with flexible, easily managed sites that will grow with your organization.

Marketing Automation

Email communication is still the glue that holds the user experience together for many organizations. Membership-based groups largely depend on email for distribution of information and calls to action, and data shows that the single biggest and most consistent driver of website traffic is, indeed, email. fusionSpan’s digital marketing strategist can help you select, configure, and optimize a variety of platforms including Pardot, Marketing Cloud, HubSpot, Mailchimp, Campaign Monitor, and more. 

Single Sign On

Single-Sign-On (SSO) can feel a bit like a mystery to many organizations, but it is really just as straightforward as it sounds. Website users login to the website and they are then dynamically identified through a connection to customer data. This identification allows organizations to provide access and experiences that are tailored to the unique relationship that the user has with the organization.

Digital Strategy Consulting

Charting the course of digital spaces and larger transformations is daunting. Organizations often struggle to understand the options as well as the implications. fusionSpan has a seasoned team of digital strategists who can help create a roadmap for the future and recommend foundational changes that will ensure success.

Creative Design

fusionSpan engages in story-based creative design practices to build a unique visual direction that honors your organization’s brand while inspiring users to engage with you online. We use common work products like style guides and prototypes to create a direction that elevates your content while satisfying user needs.

Information Architecture

Our user experience team will create information structure that follows both best practices as well as the mental model used by your users to prioritize content. Deliverables like sitemaps and wireframes will help your team validate our recommendations iteratively throughout our process so that the final product is a direct reflection of agreed-upon and sustainable site structure.

Content Strategy

Nonprofit organizations are driven by content, whether it be educational, scientific, promotional, or purely informational. fusionSpan creates content-forward digital spaces that provide a framework for site or system launches while paving a path for growth in the future. We create a content audit, content plan, and content model that gives your team all the tools you need to launch and maintain a relevant, superior digital space.

Search Engine Optimization

Content truly is king. We work with your team to leverage the Search Engine Optimization tools that are part of every fusionSpan implementation. We focus on the foundational disciplines around SEO including keyword density, accessibility, mobile responsiveness, and overall optimization.

We use SEO Yoast as our optimization plugin and train your team on how to use Yoast to test and tweak your content for its best performance.

fusionSpan will also work with your team to be sure you are using the elements of your site to drive traffic to your content priorities.

Site Maintenance

One of the persistent problem with association websites is that they become outdated over time. The CMS and other software infrastructure running the website becomes obsolete and then is very difficult to upgrade. To alleviate this problem, we perform monthly updates to all the websites we maintain. This is followed by a full round of testing to make sure everything works as intended. Recurring testing ensures that elements that are broken on the website are quickly discovered and fixed.

A monthly status report is emailed to you, which has
  • Current site performance evaluation
  • Details on what software was updated
  • Snapshot of the site traffic over the last month
  • Broken link report
