Vibrant Nation Content Management System

The Challenge

Develop a new content management platform for that nation’s leading lifestyle community for women 45 to 60. Increase unique visits, visitor and social engagement, views per session, and advertising revenue.

Our Response

Under IMC Partnership’s direction, we completely redeveloped Vibrant Nation’s site, giving their network of over 100 bloggers a modern and user-friendly publishing platform. The new platform presents bloggers with a minimalist, Medium-style editor for quickly publishing new content. Editorial staff are given complete control over all content on the site, including a drag-and-drop editor for the landing page that allows them to choose and position all content. We also created a cusrtom advertising engine that allows marketing staff to create targetted contexual ad and e-book campaigns campaigns on any page within the site.
