Calgary.FoundLocally.com covers Calgary & Southern Alberta from Medicine Hat west to Bragg Creek, from the US border north to Red Deer. This is an extensive community information site, with information about politics, entertainment, shopping, business and sports…. with a business directory that combines their events, news announcements, coupons, ales & flyers, and jobs posting. The various communities in the FoundLocally network encompasses 30 communities from Victoria to St John’s and includes a total about 100,000 pages of original content, and a business directory with over 250,0000 businesses. See the full network at http://FoundLocally.com
We conceived the site, programmed, researched, wrote, and photographed the content, and created and managed all the updates and all the various Social Media platforms and pages.
We revisit and even re-build the websites about EVERY TWO YEARS, based on one simple principle: “what might our competitors do, if they started from scratch today?” Then WE DO IT! Ourselves. and, In-house. Our methodologies are so efficient a small team can tackle that, and we continue to manage all the day-to-day stuff.
Over the years, we added many new communities, and new features and functionality. In 2010, we added a mobile version to our website(s) and in 2015 we switched to responsive design. In 2016 we switched to a more graphic “pinterest wall” layout. In 2017, our content management tools died (after 18 years of using this hyper-efficient tool) and we had to completely re-build our website’s underlying technology. We completed that in 4 months.
