Website Design for Charities
The web is a huge opportunity for charities to talk to an audience not limited by location, readership trends or mailing costs! Your potential audience is massive and making the most of your website and online activities can help you to take full advantage of this opportunity. Another benefit of web is its ability to lend itself to a wide variety of charity promotional activities including fundraising, supporter communications, building awareness, gathering following via social media and much more. Your charity website should work to support your offline efforts. What does your website do for your charity?

Message and journey
Delivering information in a way that captures attention and communicates your cause is of course essential, but how you deliver it, where it is positioned and where it leads you two next are all part of your visitors’ journey. How your visitors moves through your website and where they end up shouldn’t be left to chance, by planning how your visitors will use and navigate your site you can ensure that the messaging they receive is effective and generates the required response.
The required response may vary between charities, but mostly this will be to donate or support in some way, to follow the charity’s activities or to take part in an event. Whatever the response, our website must make the decision to respond easy for your visitor to make by providing clear ‘calls to action’ and triggers throughout the site.
