MILWAUKEE (PRWEB) April 26, 2011
Already a vibrant community, rapid growth at the subscription-based SocialMedia.org created a need to move the community to a new platform that could deliver even greater capabilities. Members were looking for new ways to connect with peers, access content and keep up-to-date on this rapidly evolving field.
SocialMedia.org turned to 7Summits for its expertise in creating social sites that are both functional and engaging. “7Summits brought thought leadership, fresh thinking and great execution that have created a resounding effect already,” said Andy Sernovitz, CEO of SocialMedia.org. “We needed it built right, and we needed it built fast, and 7Summits made it happen.”
7Summits’ team of strategists, designers and developers built the SocialMedia.org member center on Jive Social Business Software (SBS) 4.5. Drawing upon their experience creating engaging communities for large companies nationwide, the 7Summits team worked with Social Media.org to design the site’s new experience, develop and test the necessary technology, and ensured the complete migration of the existing community profiles and content.
“Members of SocialMedia.org are working together to shape social media trends with people that they trust,” said Paul Stillmank, President & CEO of 7Summits. “Working with Andy and his team, we’ve structured the new community to provide access to cutting-edge knowledge and enable conversations to occur here that simply don’t happen anywhere else. Members can also make contacts and enhance their standing among peers to better share information about how social media is quickly reshaping how business gets done. Needless to say, we felt a tremendous responsibility to get these improvements right and we are proud of the work.”
Members are responding positively to SocialMedia.org’s continued progression. "Participating in socialmedia.org has proven instrumental in our ability to research ideas, stay up to date on trends, and network with other social media professionals at major brands," said Amit Wadehra, Strategy and Content Manager of Social Networking at Allstate Insurance Company. "The new member center provides useful tools that make it easy to connect with other leaders in the space and share valuable experiences.”
