Jumpstart makes heavy use of social videos throughout their website. With that in mind, Paragon wanted to make sure that the process of adding a video to the site was streamlined and easy for the content editors to do with little or no assistance from their IT team. Today, JumpStart content editors can easily insert a YouTube video into the body of any web page simply by copying and pasting the YouTube URL into the rich text editor, highlighting the link, and then selecting and applying a CSS Class from a drop down menu. This quick process ensures each YouTube video shows up consistently and correctly within the body of the web page. Launch a video on Jumpstart’s site by clicking the YouTube Icon.

In addition to the YouTube video CSS, Paragon implemented an EviBlog module for JumpStart, which allows many blog authors to easily add their blog post to the website. It also allows website viewers to Share or Like the post on many different social media outlets.

The project also included SalesForce integration, content sharing features, multi-site integration, Sitecore’s Web Forms for Marketers implementation, social media integration and many other important dynamics that support and meet Jumpstart’s needs.
