Does your club, organization or association need a hosted website designed and developed with it’s very own forums for discussion? With CompuGeaux, we can get your organization or club on the web in no time with the CompuGeaux Community Building Package. Build your group into a Community with a blogging website and forums, plus optional add-ons to complete your Community website!
The Community Building Package from CompuGeaux comes with a WordPress web site designed and hosted by CompuGeaux. We use WordPress because it is the most popular Content Management System (CMS), used by approximately 75 million websites. Organizations, companies and even individuals use WordPress due to its ease of use and its powerful, flexible and simple interface. With its responsive design and easy blogging platform, WordPress holds the largest CMS market share by far, and currently accounts for over a quarter of all websites.
Internet Forums are online discussion sites where people can hold conversations in the form of posted messages. They differ from chat rooms in that messages are often longer than one line of text, and are at least temporarily archived. Also, depending on the access level of a user or the forum set-up, a posted message might need to be approved by a moderator before it becomes visible. It is hierarchical or tree-like in structure: a forum can contain a number of sub-forums, each of which may have several topics. Within a forum’s topic, each new discussion started is called a thread, and can be replied to by as many people as so wish. Depending on the forum’s settings, users can have to register with the forum and then subsequently log in in order to post messages.
In addition to the WordPress website and blogging platform, the CompuGeaux Community Building Package comes with the installations of a forum. In these online discussion boards, members of your club, organization, or association can ask questions, share their experiences, and discuss topics of mutual interest. They are an excellent way to create social connections and a sense of community. Use the Forums application to start discussions about a specific topic or to debate solutions to shared problems. By participating in a forum, you can exchange ideas and use the expertise of people in your organization.
Best of all, CompuGeaux offers you a selection of six different forum applications (in case you have a preference in what forums application you prefer to use).
In addition to the base package, CompuGeaux offers numerous add-ons to make your CompuGeaux Community Building Package more complete. These include software options such as Contacts Relationship Management (CRM) platforms that can be used as a way to keep all your members information. The key features of a CRM system typically include contact management functionality, dashboard-style presentation of information, and reports that analyse member activity, along with communication tools such as integrated email and internal instant messaging.
Additional optional add-ons include “Craigslist-style” classified advertisement applications in order to offer your association’s members a place to buy, sell and trade items like the demo page you can see here. Ask for a complete list of optional add-ons to complete your new community website and forums. We are sure we can put together a customized CompuGeaux Community Building Package that fit all of the needs of your club, organization or association.
