nonprofits / associations

TBG’s work since the beginning has heavily favored nonprofits and professional associations, including the development of award-winning, larger sites for many well-known organizations. For these groups, their websites are increasingly at the center of their overall operations, and must be highly transactional and self-service, often requiring multiple integrations with other systems, and sometimes complex, multi-site strategies. Working on tight deadlines and often tight budgets, there is no room for failure. 

TBG has the deep strategic, UX and technology experience and reputation to ensure these projects are done right. We are a dependable vendor that will not only build an inspired site or multi-channel strategy, but also deliver rock solid technical results that keep your site humming through your annual conference and beyond. Fully versed in popular AMS (association management system) software integrations, and developing these sites in a fully Responsive Web Design, we take on these complex sites with the intention of raising the competitive bar, and meeting and exceeding current best practices for nonprofits and associations on the web.

Sitecore Site of the Year

The NAIOP site makes leading-edge use of Sitecore as a CMS platform­—including content personalization (DMS), structured content reuse, automations based on site structure, numerous integrations, and many other best practices. TBG was honored with a Sitecore Site of the Year (Best Association) for this site.

Complex Site Build

Complex Site Build

Portions of the NAIOP website make use of targeted content personalized based on user behavior—taking advantage of Sitecore’s nimble system for managing personalization rules in an ad hoc, nontechnical way. Based on user behavior, extremely narrowly defined niche interests (for instance in publications) can be ascertained for the anonymous use, and then used to drive decisions about content presentation.

NAIOP (the Commercial Real Estate Development Association) is a membership and advocacy organization at the core of real estate development nationally. Having previously developed relatively sophisticated eCommerce tools, the organization aimed to recreate those tools and develop a state of the art website that would dramatically leverage each interaction with its members.

TBG created a complete brand theory for the American Montessori Society (AMS), weighting a variety of desirable characteristics, working around the limitations of what can be expressed in the narrow attention-space that a brand must confront. The remainder of site development followed our structured design processes, including Web strategy, information architecture, graphic design, and development of functional requirements, prototyping, content migration and training.
