STEADYRAIN’s Journey with DNN
SteadyRain is a DNN Certified Partner who has been implementing DNN website solutions for over 15 years. In that time our skills have grown as the platform has grown and we were proud to be a long-time DNN Sponsor and now a formal DNN Certified Partner. This status provides us a unique level of access to the core team and to the executive management within the DNN organization as well as advanced access to updates and upgrades of the framework. SteadyRain can leverage these relationships to more deeply fulfill the needs of our clients to build the most advanced and feature-rich solutions possible.
Areas of Specialization
For success in business, you must have plans: A business plan, a financial plan, an HR plan, a marketing plan, the list goes on and on. At SteadyRain, our award-winning team is more than equipped to help you come up with another important plan: We call it a digital strategy.
SteadyRain provides digital marketing services that complement the DNN platform. Everything from technical site optimization, speed improvements, user experience optimization through development of conversion funnels and content creation/optimization is implemented in order to ensure our clients success. These strategies help increase conversions on websites and enhances key performance indicators. Our digital marketing team is a full service provider that drives traffic to clients’ websites through the use of paid search, display ads, remarketing ads, paid social and video campaign optimizations.
We work with clients to outline online goals and initiatives whether they be specific to a software solution, campaign flight or a broader view of an organization’s entire digital landscape. This planning takes place through our Joint Application Design/Development, or JAD, process. It has proven that approaching complex problems “with clients” instead of “for clients” provides a dramatic increase in our ability to deliver sophisticated solutions on time, on budget and in scope. It also effectively eliminates miscommunication between internal stakeholders within a client organization, bringing all internal requirements into alignment with our marketing and development teams.
At SteadyRain, we focus first on obtaining a panoramic of your company’s current digital landscape, then working with you to determine the most logical path forward. We uncover insights based on business priorities, target audiences and available budgets to build goals that are short, medium and long term by developing a multi-year strategic plan for digital.
Notable DNN Projects
The Archdiocese of St. Louis had a dated website that was confusing to navigate. As a leader of technology in the Catholic community across the United States, the Archdiocese needed to modernize their website to attract new and current Catholics by providing them services & support within the St. Louis community.
As a result of an in-depth discovery & consulting phase, SteadyRain completed a new information architecture for the Archdiocese of St. Louis public website and developed wireframes that detailed the new layout for the marketing website. Based on this new strategy, SteadyRain designed and produced a new look and feel for the catholic community. As part of this solution, SteadyRain produced the necessary skins/styles for use in the DNN Evoq content management system.
SteadyRain created custom Content Types to allow the Archdiocese to manage Announcements, Events & Job Listings unique to each Ministry Office or Parish within the site. It also includes a full publication management tool for all publications delivered by the Archdiocese.
The new website allows customers to view content and information that is related to their audience via Audience Dashboards. The new site also allows for Micro-Sites (site within a site) for each of the offices that live within the Archdiocese itself (e.g. Office of Consecrated Life, Office of Communications).
