The Alliance for Women in Media (AWM) just launched its new website, http://www.allwomeninmedia.org/, reaffirming its commitment to promoting women in all forms of media. The redesigned site, developed by Maryland web design firm, Blue Water Media, highlights the organization’s emphasis and focus on all forms of media including social, print and broadcast. The upgraded website boasts a creative, dynamic and interactive theme that ensures a high engagement rate between the website and its audience. The homepage showcases a variety of information for its audience ranging from the latest news, upcoming events, the Reflections blog, and a spotlight section.
The new website layout is neatly organized under different sections and invites visitors to explore the resources on the website in-depth. The toolbar on the top of the website structures information in an easy-to-navigate manner both for familiar and new visitors. The web design team at Blue Water Media has emphasized dynamic content and interactivity on the website through features such as a video gallery which displays inspiring videos and clips from across the media industry, and the organization’s presence on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube. Website visitors have the option of subscribing to the organization’s e-newsletter to stay abreast of the latest news about the organization and key industry updates. In addition, the website also highlights the Gracie Awards, which recognize the realistic and faceted portrayal of women in entertainment, commercials, news, features and other programs.
The vast depth of content, resources and information offered by the organization which helps women in media succeed and lead is structured in an organized and easy-to-access manner. Constituents have access to AWM’s e-newsletter, FastForward, quarterly magazine, Making Waves, and Reflections blog. In addition, the section on useful industry links is organized alphabetically to provide users with easy access to relevant information. Ultimately, the layout and content presentation on the redesigned website advances AWM’s mission by engaging its diverse audience of media and entertainment industry professionals with the dynamic content on the website.
