Websites for Non-Profit Organizations
Why does your Non-Profit Organization need a website?
A non-profit business needs a well-planned and website to help communicate the mission and services provided to your potential audience. Your target audience is spending an increasingly longer period of their day online and this presents an outstanding opportunity for you to clearly convey the benefits and services provided by your organization.
If someone is searching for information about your organization, the first place that they will look is the Internet. Will they find your organization on the Internet? What will they find out about your organization? If your non-profit organization does not have a website, you are missing an opportunity to control the communication with those who can best benefit from what you’re offering.
Online Opportunities for Non-Profit Organizations
- Control Your Message:
A personalized website properly engineered with your own domain name will provide your own message best communicate the mission of your organization.
- Mobile Friendly:
Your website should be responsive. This means that the pages of your website will look great on any size screen (adapting to phones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers). Internet access is increasingly becoming mobile, so your site needs to adapt to this trend. Websites developed more than a year or two ago are likely not responsive.
