Back in April of 2013, we shared the story of a New Orleans credit union whose site underwent a complete 180°, emerging from Bizzuka production as a useful and community-friendly credit union website. The credit union web design was easy to use and provided value to credit union customers. The Greater New Orleans Federal Credit Union’s members weren’t the only ones who took notice. In April of 2013, GNOFCU’s site was named Best Website at the Louisiana Credit Union League’s Excellence in Marketing Awards.
Now, a year later, Christian Community Credit Union has become the second award-winning credit union in Bizzuka’s portfolio. The San Dimas, CA credit union was named a Gold Award winner by the Marketing Association of Credit Unions, a national group of credit union marketers and business partners.
“We’re extremely pleased with Bizzuka’s partnership in hosting our award-winning [credit union] website redesign,” offered Hope Smith, AVP Director of Marketing and Communications at CCCU. Like GNOFCU, CCCU’s site was a challenging, yet ultimately very rewarding project for both parties involved.
“The Content Management System (CMS) is top notch! With over a hundred pages, our website is complex. Yet, Bizzuka has been able to deliver technical solutions for our unique needs,” added Ms. Smith. “Their customer service is outstanding – always friendly and timely. Working with Bizzuka is a blessing and an answered prayer.”
MyCCCU.com is indeed a massive site—filled to the brim with useful content for both members and the general public. The credit union web is designed to share the tips and guides on the site with its active social media following, thus providing additional value and service to its membership.
Back in New Orleans, GNOFCU is taking advantage of their site’s easy CMS to routinely publish news and other content, keeping the site fresh and well-ranked for competitive search terms.
“Our clients like GNOFCU and Jefferson Financial have expressed that third party providers simply didn’t give them the flexibility or control to compete with larger, national financial institutions,” offered Bizzuka Business Development Executive Jamie Foster, originally quoted in our 2013 press release. “GNOFCU needed an attractive, navigable website that allowed members easy access to all of the services they provide.”
Janet L. Sanders, CEO of GNOFCU, agreed with Jamie that the best websites are unflinchingly user-focused.
“Websites are ongoing marketing ventures that we consider a primary tool for informing members, as well as potential members, of our services and providing them with the advantages of credit union membership,” said Sanders. “Our partnership with Louisiana-owned Bizzuka provides us with the foundation to successfully use this avenue as an effective marketing tool.”
