The World Community for Christian Meditation

The School of Meditation

A Community Management Platform for a Global Non-Profit

The Challenge

The World Community for Christian Meditation (WCCM) is a global non-profit with presence and 150+ countries, and roughly 200,000 members worldwide. Given the breadth complexity of their membership and content needs, the wanted to develop a digital platform that could serve as both an internal social network, and also a channel for distributing content across languages and disciplines.

The Process

Over the course of 2 years, we lead the WCCM through a series of engagements, the lead to the multi-phase build out of a world class community platform. We started with visioning,  before moving on to strategy, then branding, all the while incorporating stakeholder feedback from national communities around the globe.

The RESULT

After just 6 months, we launched an MVP consisting of an MLS and member portal. Six months later, we launched resources for national communities, and better eCommerce capabilities. Finally, we built out a full resource library, developed new sales channels, improved usability and SEO throughout the site.

The STRATEGY

Discovery, Planning, and Prioritization

Fortunately the WCCM was patient and wise enough to embark on an open-ended strategy engagement with us before committing to a single deliverable. Over the course of three short weeks, we co-developed a comprehensive and clearly prioritized action plan for how to achieve the project goals over the next 12 months and beyond.

The Brand

A brand that honors its history

Based on the findings from our strategy engagement, the client agreed that it was necessary to create an independent sub brand, distinct from the parent organization, that would honor the history and legacy of the WCCM, but that would also appeal to younger audiences. This brand would also have to clearly communicate the platform’s value proposition and core values.

Resource Library

Compiling decades of content into a centralized resource library.

The client has been generating multimedia content–audios, videos, books, presentations–for decades. Unfortunately, most of the content was spread disparately over several platforms, languages, media types, and national community websites. Over the course of 12 months, we managed to compile, organize, curate, and reformat years of content into a robust library suitable for teachers, students, lifelong meditators, and newcomers alike.
