The State Bar of Georgia recently awarded the Houston County Bar Association with the 2014 Website Award, which was designed and developed by Macon-based M&R Marketing Group. The award recognizes websites that exemplify excellence in usefulness, ease of use, content, and design.
The objective was to create a user-friendly, mobile-friendly website that properly displays bar member profiles via a searchable member directory, allowing the website to serve the general public who may be seeking an attorney and to better serve bar members who want to offer a referral or need to locate assistance for cases outside of their general expertise.
This objective was met by creating a full member directory that is searchable by city, name, and practice area, allowing each of the criteria to populate a unique result. For example, if you are seeking a bankruptcy attorney in Warner Robins, the website currently populates 3 results and provides contact information for each attorney.
There are several other features on the new Houston County Bar Association website:
- Mobile website design – the new website utilizes Responsive Website Design (RWD), which allows the website to operate as a mobile and desktop website within one, automatically resizing to fit the size of the platform on which the website is being viewed. This provides a great resource, allowing a large financial savings and also the ability to update and manage one website as opposed to two.
- Calendar – the integrated calendar feature displays upcoming events to better inform the community of public service events and attorneys of upcoming bar association meetings.
- Blog – the blog is available to all bar members to announce news from their firm.
- Updated design – the website includes new branding, which consists of a new color palette and logo for the Houston County Bar Association.
We hope you will utilize this new resource for our local bar association.
