Content Management System
A content management system (CMS) is the central administrative system of a nonprofit’s website. With a CMS, you can edit, update, and effectively manage the content of your site. The best content management system should fit the goals and needs of your nonprofit.
Our team works with three open-source systems: WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal. The universality of these 3 options provides a range of design elements that can be adapted to web users anywhere between novice and tech-savvy, and offer functionalities that cater to a variety of nonprofits.
Maintaining a website is a continuous process, and in many cases, a team effort. It’s crucial that you choose a CMS your entire staff can operate. Based on the individual goals and needs of your nonprofit, we’ll help you select a CMS system that best fits your organization, and provide the necessary training and support so you feel confident and adept to manage the site.
Flexibility is key when it comes to designing nonprofit websites. That’s why we offer our clients 3 open-source systems that allow them to update and maintain their websites with customization and ease. Dependent on the goals of your nonprofit, we offer a variety of applications, installations, and tools to compliment your organization.
Freedom of Design
We believe in freedom of design, meaning, we work in a collaborative and innovative environment to provide the best solutions for nonprofits. Our clients receive visually aesthetic designs that are interactive, engaging, responsive, optimized for online marketing, and customized to your organization.
This mentality extends to other online engagement tools beyond web design. Our solutions yield proven results; convert more donors, improve fundraising efforts, and drive a community around a cause.
Is your site communicating well with your target audience? Is it fulfilling its purpose in achieving your goals? Does it look outdated? We recognize that website upkeep isn’t necessarily #1 on your list of things to do, so we can do it for you. We’ll create a restructured design and layout of your website that best communicates your nonprofit and its mission.
Responsive Web Design
This year, Google stated that mobile-optimized websites will appear higher on search results than non mobile-friendly pages. As a result of this, in 2015, approximately 10% of donations to nonprofit organizations were made on a mobile device. As users continue to access the web on their smartphones and tablets, there’s a greater importance on designing websites that transfer functionally and aesthetically on any screen size. We create flexible designs optimized for mobile devices.
- Readable text without zoom
- Content that fits to screen size
- Easy-tap call-to-actions
- Avoid heavy software
