Website goes live with integrated social media and updated features
Washington, D.C. - Updated graphics, integrated social media and an improved Action Center are all part of Idaho Senator Mike Crapo's newly-redesigned website that launched today.
"My goal is to stay in constant contact with Idahoans and provide them with up-to-date information in an efficient way," Crapo said. "The previous website served Idahoans well, but with changing technology, we recognized the need for an improved site. The new website is graphically appealing, functional and helpful to the people of Idaho. I encourage Idahoans to explore the new site and continue to provide comments and suggestions on how my website can better serve them."
Social media continues to shift the way Members of Congress stay connected with their constituents. This update offers visitors a way to quickly scroll through Crapo's videos, photos, Facebook updates and Twitter feed. Over the last year, Crapo's office has implemented an innovative digital strategy. Along with launching a Twitter account that now has over 3,000 followers; the Senator has doubled the number of "likes" on his Facebook page with the use of photos, videos and infographics. This updated website places these various platforms prominently on the homepage.
Visitors will notice an Action Center on the right side of the page. This center offers Idahoans a quick route to email the Senator, sign up for tele-townhalls, subscribe to the e-newsletter, view his voting record, request flags, place tour requests and solicit help with federal agencies. Directly under the "Action Center," visitors will find a scrolling Hot Topics section highlighting the Senator's work on various issues, as well as, answers to the most frequently asked questions by Idahoans over the last week. Seeking a meeting with the Senator has been made easier by the use of e-mail instead of faxed requests. Throughout the site, a person will find updated content and photos that highlight Crapo's work in the Senate and the Gem State's beautiful landscape.
