MasonrySystems.org is now LIVE!
New site user-friendly, aesthetically pleasant, and informative
By Imani Brodie
After months of hard work performed by our in-house web designer, the MasonrySystems.org website is LIVE and ready for use again! This time however, you will notice a few changes from what was previously seen on the site.
Our overall goal for the MSO website was to create a user-friendly, aesthetically pleasant, and informational website that is used as an industry standard not only for masonry contractors but also for architects, owners, masonry suppliers, and other interested parties. With this new design, I do believe we have achieved all of these goals.
The redesigned website has all of the things that were not evident in the original design. We have highlighted our Wall Systems section along with an updated and easily visible Benefits, Gallery, Knowledge, Communication, and Resources section. Each section includes updated graphics, hyperlinks to other resources, and cross references to other sections on the site.
One way in which you can support the website is to become a sponsor or advertiser on the site. As of now, a company can purchase either a $500.00 (per year) banner advertisement or for $250.00 (per year) be listed as an online sponsor. However, the most cost effective and influential thing you can do as an individual to help our website would be to simply use it! By visiting our site regularly and encouraging others to do so, you will aid in increasing website traffic which will encourage participation from advertisers and sponsors.
So on behalf of the entire MasonrySystems.org committee, I encourage and all but demand that you go check out the new site for yourself! My hope is that you are both pleasantly surprised and inspired to return to the site in the future.
