Planning: Nonprofit Website Best Practices
What are some of the best practices for a nonprofit website? Well, that depends on several factors.
By using our nonprofit website best practices framework, Dot Org Web Works will get you noticed with a web presence that will truly reflect the essence (the brand) of your organization’s services, programs and mission. But before we’re ready to showcase you to the world, we have important branding questions to ask you: Who is your audience? What is the website’s primary purpose? Which functions should it have? What content should be on the new website? How responsive should your site be to mobile devices? Are you planning to develop a website that raises awareness for a cause or to fulfill your organization’s mission?
We understand that planning the development of a non profit website can be a little intimidating. But do not despair! We will shepherd you through it with our planning know-how: detailed questionnaires, a little hand-holding, and more than two decades of working with the nonprofit sector in the web development and social marketing arena.
