Patheos Launches Patheos 3.0, a Site Redesign Built for Growth
A New Look for the World's Premier Destination for Global Dialogue on Religion
DENVER - April 25, 2012 -- Patheos.com, the world's premier online destination for global dialogue on religion and spirituality, today announced the launch of "Patheos 3.0," a full site redesign built to take Patheos into the upper echelon of web media outlets.
"With nearly 2.5 million monthly unique visitors, Patheos has been growing incredibly fast," said Leo Brunnick, Patheos CEO. "We wanted to build a website that not only helps us continue this growth rate, but also has the polish and functionality to make us at home among the web's largest media sites."
The redesigned features include:
- A home page built to showcase the most timely and fascinating religion stories of the day
- Religion channel pages designed to be the home pages on the web for that faith
- Redesigned blog pages that build a stronger network between bloggers of a faith
Patheos continues to attract the best and most popular writers of faith on the web, from atheism to Catholicism to Evangelical Christianity. In December it launched Patheos Press, a publisher of eBooks on the most pressing and thought-provoking issues of faith in today's world.
Patheos engaged leading Enterprise Web solutions provider Avalon Consulting, LLC to build Patheos 3.0. Avalon provided thought leadership and implementation expertise in advanced cloud-based technologies that will allow Patheos to cost-effectively scale to the next order of magnitude.
"Patheos 3.0 is the platform upon which we will soon be delivering the next phase of exciting content, features and applications," Brunnick said. "Stay tuned for more exciting news in 2012."
