CHALLENGES & OPPORTUNITIES
When it came time to upgrade and dramatically expand the content and improve the functionality of its website, the organization turned to Serendipit Consulting.
The challenge was to make the new website informative and user-friendly for their largely older resident demographic while painting an SEO-friendly picture of the Gainey Ranch and Scottsdale lifestyle, area events, and other local attractions.
The addition of events and attractions was designed to be a regularly updated resource to help residents stay on top of things to see and do, which could also entice potential visitors thinking of visiting the area.
The ultimate goal was to create an information-rich online resource for improving the lives of Gainey Ranch residents while boosting the Gainey Ranch search results.
- Conducted a brainstorm session with key decision-makers from Gainey Ranch Community Association to fully understand their goals and objectives
- Researched other community association websites in and out of state
