Introduction
The C-3 Group is pleased to provide the following proposal for MGCLERC. The C-3 Group was
founded in 2008 with the vision to build an advertising and marketing firm based on results--
driven in part by the integration of traditional marketing and new technologies. From initial
strategy to graphic design to project completion tailored approach is taken to every project. Each
of our clients is unique and therefore we approach each project as needing a custom solution.

The C-3 team brings a wealth of experience in marketing research and strategy, web
development and marketing, graphic design, audio/video production, social media marketing,
public relations and other marketing disciplines. We combine proven core marketing strategies
with the newest technology delivery systems to maximize their impact. This synergy provides a
key advantage to our clients and helps accelerate their success.

Project Team Portfolio
Examples of our work are briefly described in attachment A of the proposal document. They are
also outlined in further detail in the client references attachments B-D.

C-3 Group has prepared a sample creative design for MGCLERC based solely on the information
provided in the initial RFP and gathered from the current MGCLERC website, which can be
viewed online at www.c-3group.com/MGCLERC. This creative is meant to show our capabilities
and not a final completed design. If awarded the contract, designs will be submitted based on
additional information and goals determined in the strategy session.




There are a number of other examples of work on The C-3 Group website, with links to live sites,
print examples, branding, multimedia and PR. To view our portfolio, you can access it directly
from http://c-3group.com/web.php.



                                                                                          Page 2 of 24
Project Overview
MGCLERC is seeking a firm to provide professional web design services to re-design and re-
structure their website to better serve board members, regulated facilities and the general public.
The current site appearance gives the user the impression of being outdated, and needs to be
updated with new design and new technology. A comprehensive content-management system
will be incorporated to keep content fresh and will have the ability to be expanded on as future
needs arise.

We believe that The C-3 Group can offer MGCLERC a high level of quality and value in the
execution of this scope of service. The C-3 Group has the experience, expertise, and project
management skills to ensure successful and timely completion of the web design project while
creating a strong working foundation to serve MGCLERC going forward.

Project Work Plan
The scope of work includes Website Marketing Strategy/Analysis, Navigation Strategy, Creative
Design, Content Development, Website Development and Programming, Implementation of
CMS, and Deployment/Training. Further definition for each phase is outlined in reference
attachment E.

              Website Marketing Strategy/Analysis
                     o Strategy session to determine and clarify goals of the website,
                        branding, core messaging, calls to action, etc.
                     o Define site architecture and navigation

              Creative Design
                      o Development of 2-3 home and inner page concept designs
                      o Feedback phase followed by revisions, review and approval of
                         website design
                      o Any design changes to be made

              Content Development
                     o Copywriting of content
                     o Feedback phase followed by revisions and review
                     o Any minor copy changes to be made

              Web Development & Programming
                    o Implementation of open source CMS
                    o Design and Programming of all static webpages
                    o Any minor copy and image changes to be made
                    o Feedback Phase followed by review and approval of programmed site

              Website Implementation
                     o Deployment to live server
                     o User Training for CMS




                                                                                          Page 3 of 24
Execution and Methodology
The C-3 Group will work with the MGCLERC team to determine a website strategy to deliver
accurate and transparent information to the public, regulated facilities and board members. The
website will adhere to Section 508 ADA guidelines and W3C standards, and will include search
functionality to make all content easy for the user to find. Many websites The C-3 Group has
created utilize one-click navigation, a best practice for enhancing the user experience and
making information easy to find. Additional features included in the project are search engine
optimization for keywords and phrases, a site map and installation of Google Analytics, a
reporting tool to measure website performance.

The C-3 Group would recommend utilizing Drupal, an open source content management system
to create a fully dynamic, database driven site that will be scalable and extensible for future
MGCLERC projects. Drupal is multi-browser compatible and allows for different security levels to
be assigned to specific users.

Drupal has recently been implemented as the CMS of choice for several prominent government
and non-profit organizations. The White House (www.whitehouse.gov) switched to Drupal in
2009 because of the addition of video, text captions, making slideshows search engine optimized
and reusing slideshow content effectively across the site. Similarly, www.recovery.gov was
launched using the Drupal framework. Oxfam International (www.oxfam.org/) switched their site
to the Drupal system in late 2008. The United Nations (www.un.org) and World Food Programme
(www.wfp.org) sites are also programmed on the Drupal platform.

If MGCLERC would decide to go with another content management solution other than the
Drupal recommendation, C-3 Group would then determine the time and cost difference.

At the time of deployment, MGCLERC will be fully trained on how to use the open source content
management system and be provided with written training documentation. We have outlined in
the Scope of Work much of the process and methodology used during the web design,
development, testing and implementation phases, but there are several other critical areas to
mention:

Communication
With the number of board members involved, timeliness of communication is critical to the
success of the project. It is recommended to hold weekly briefings regarding the status of the
project but meetings could be held based on MGCLERC’s schedule and with shorter notice if
necessary.

Testing
The project will not be completed until thorough testing is completed to ensure all aspects of the
site are functioning as designed. We also will make certain that sufficient training is provided to
MGCLERC during the hand-off process.




                                                                                           Page 4 of 24
Project Team Experience
The C-3 Group team has worked together professionally for a number of years and have proven
processes in place for project work flow. No subcontractors or outside consultants will be used on
the project if awarded, and all of the work will be completed in-house at The C-3 Group office.

In addition to web design and programming experience, C-3 Group is a full service marketing
agency. We can not only design a professional, easy to use website for your organization but can
make sure that the messaging is compelling and directed toward your target audiences.

SCOPE OF WORK:
The Dayton Convention Center utilized the team at C-3 Group for branding and complete redesign of the
site. In conjunction with the client, The C-3 Group developed a logo, branding elements and a strategic
plan to most effectively create a design and navigation that aligned with the visitors to their site. Dayton
Convention Center also wanted to make certain that key information was available immediately from the
home page. This was designed in a content management system that allowed them to change information
quickly as events and dates changed. The Dayton Convention Center continues as a client of C-3 Group
today in making any significant changes to the site as well as designing aspects of the site for special
events/pages.

SCOPE OF WORK:
Wright State Residence Services began their relationship with The C-3 Group with a comprehensive
marketing plan. Based on the results from the marketing plan, it was determined that the department was
in need of a brand makeover and an updated marketing strategy. Initially, a new logo was designed to
invoke a fresh, modern appearance that would appeal to both parents and students. The website was
created to have an updated look and feel and most importantly to allow the end user ease of navigation.
The website was also created in an open source Content Management System. After the initial website
redesign, several other web projects were completed including a microsite for Move In weekend, a landing

SCOPE OF WORK:
Allied Shipping and Packaging, Inc. (ASAP) is an industrial supplies distributor with nearly three decades in the
packaging industry. When Shelly Robinson-Heller took over the company from her father as President in 2008, she
initiated the process to become a Certified Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) Woman
Owned business. Our challenge was to successfully re-brand the company’s image as a WBENC in order to help
grow the business and capitalize on the new opportunities available to ASAP that accompanied this certification.

The C-3 Group achieved these goals through a redesign of their website to highlight the WBENC and EDGE
(Encouraging Diversity Growth & Equity) certifications. The website redesign included ensuring the site met today’s
best practice standards for a website as well as a strategy to optimize the site for Search Engine results. An online
Capability Statement was developed at both the State and Federal level to further support the WBENC initiative.

A social media presence was created with the goal of being an educator in the industry. ASAP now has a strong
social media presence to promote company updates and product offerings, association announcements and industry
education. Other marketing efforts for ASAP include: Catalog Covers, Print Ads, Customer Online Ordering System
(Web Development), Sales Flyers, and Online Systems Integration with 3rd Party Vendors. Today, Allied Shipping
and Packaging has achieved a new level of national and local recognition and continues to polish their image with
ongoing marketing efforts with The C-3 Group.
