As a team of editors, designers, writers, communicators and marketers, we spend a lot of time developing and sharing utility stories. We like to say our cooperative was built to share those stories. This month, Pioneer’s website has been rebuilt to better share our story, too. We’re excited at how the new design helps us better serve members like you.
As we worked on building this new site, our team kept three website design strategies in mind to make Pioneer.coop a trusted resource for utility communicators.
1. Focus on Inspiration
Ideas and content are the heart of our co-op. Our website redesign showcases these ideas, using them to build a community of storytellers.
Voices from our members, dubbed #UtilityPioneers, and staff will inspire communicators through case studies, podcasts, blog posts, webinars and eBooks. Hunting for inspiration? Use our search tool to get ideas in one place from all of our types of content. Have an idea you’d like to share? We’d love to hear from you.Find Inspiration
2. Make Solutions Easy
Utility communicators often come to us with a challenge. Pioneer.coop makes finding solutions easy. Our navigation language shifted from a list of product names to a focus on ways we serve members.
Once you find a solution, you’ll notice we have built opportunities onto each page to help you make ideas a reality. Staff experts are listed for every idea, and online chat offers an instant connection to experts at our co-op. This deepens the sense of community and partnership that drives Pioneer.Get Solutions
3. Unite our Brands
Finally and perhaps most importantly, the website unifies Pioneer’s family of brands. Instead of linking to a webinar on WordSouth.com or sharing product info from ReachtheARC.com, all of our content, solutions and staff (except for the NewsData team, which operates as an independent journalistic entity) are listed together.
It’s the first time we’ve brought together staff from across our family of companies. Take a look at the ‘Your team’ section. Pioneer’s staff are an impressive bunch. Together, our shared skills and passion for storytelling shine.Meet Your Team
