Socialbrite before our redesign.

Redesigned site has a renewed focus on serving nonprofits’ needs

JD LasicaFor the past several months we’ve been working behind the scenes on several design changes for Socialbrite that we’ve just unveiled.

We’ve been successful since our founding in May 2009 with becoming perhaps the Web’s leading knowledge hub about how to use social media for social causes and to advance nonprofits’ missions. Beyond our hundreds of tutorials and content-rich Sharing Center, check out our rankings in Google for these search terms:

#1 fundraising tools
#1 free reports
#1 best survey
#1 best online survey
#1 or #2 open source tools
#1 or #2 media dashboard
#1 media strategy example

And several other keywords relevant to the nonprofit community.

New look and a more focused approach

The new site offers more — and a bit less:

• We’ve trimmed down, losing some of the widgets and gadgets from the sidebar and footer, which were nice eye candy but which were slowing down the site, while retaining some old favorites. (We’re still working on upgrading the Category pages over there in the right sidebar.)

• To make things even zippier, we moved from HostGator (so long, we won’t miss you) toWPEngine as our hosting platform.

• We purchased a TypeKit license to make the typography pop.

• We’re still on WordPress, of course, but moved to a versatile new theme, twentyeleven.

• We have a new Clients pageTeam page and Services page.

• Most important, we’re eager to hear from you about how we might help with your strategy, online presence or campaign.
