New Website Launch

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

Hello Five Points Business Owner!

We are excited to announce the launch of our brand new website! Take a look around. You’ll notice new content, better navigation, more photos, a new business directory, and a whole new look and feel. Planning for the new site began around five months ago, gradually taking shape with the input of board members, business owners, and the expertise and guidance of a local web designer and developer. We’re really pleased with the result, and hope you will be as well.

As you may have noticed, the new site now complements our recent Five Points re-branding efforts and aims to showcase the neighborhood better. Our goal was to tell the story of Five Points through experiences in the area, highlighting events, businesses, and telling of a thriving community.

If you were accustomed to the navigation on the old site, you’ll see a significant change – if you’ve bookmarked any pages on the site, they’ll be due for an update. Five Points is a place where people are looking for Things To Do; where friends are trying to decide on What To Eat or Where To Shop; your customers are trying to Find Services to help them – these themes are now how the site is now structured. If you still can’t find what you’re looking for, however, please click and type your search term into the upper magnifying glass icon.

And please, feel free to browse on your desktop, laptop, smartphone, tablet, or other device – our new site is designed to accommodate all screens! Mobile users get a fast experience on their phone with clickable phone numbers, social sharing, one-click directions, and more. Five Points visitors can now easily find out more about your business, see what it looks like, and click to get to you. We think this is a great resource for every business owner and encourage you to review your listing and improve upon what we have started!

As with any new website, there may be a few glitches that need adjustment over the next few weeks, so please bear with us. Lot's of bugs were squashed prior to launching, but we’ll be adding more content in the coming weeks and months, and have exciting plans for the continued growth of the site. We envision this becoming a one-stop destination for residents and visitors alike — the first stop for anyone interested in learning more about and easily connecting with our great community.

We created this new site for our beloved Five Points neighborhood, which is you! We wouldn't have a vibrant community without you, so please, let us know what you think. You can email us your feedback at amybeth@fivepointscolumbia.com.

One more bit of info: we have a new feature called Listography. Our intention here is to promote the human element of Five Points by showcasing the top things to do in Five Points, suggested by the people who live and work here. Don't be surprised if we call on you to give us an interview to learn more about your story and what you love about Five Points. And if you want to suggest an employee for consideration, email us!
