When it comes to nonprofit web design there are two main factors that lead to success. No. 1 is powerful, clean and easy to navigate design and No. 2 is an easy-to-use and understand content management system or CMS.
Since our founding in 2009 Idea Marketing Group has designed and developed dozens of websites for nonprofit organizations around the world, and without a doubt we can only recommend nonprofit websites be built on the WordPress platform. Let’s dive a little bit further into the why.
Powerful, clean and simple web design
Marketing any organization, its mission and objectives, is an element essential of success. However, in nonprofit web design more importance is placed on user resources, accessibility and sponsor-supporter information.
A nonprofit website also needs to prominently feature the organization’s fundraising efforts and draw attention to upcoming events, eCommerce capabilities and call for donations or other support. Other not to be overlooked components of nonprofit web design include:
- Single and Recurring Donations
- CRM Integrations
- Interactive Event Calendars
- Fundraising Event Registration
- Walk/5K Registration & Ticket Sales
- Searchable Resource Library
- Mass Email Integration
At Idea we custom build all of our websites on the powerful WordPress platform, which seamlessly integrates and supports all the important above features needed in nonprofit websites. We do not attempt to fit your organizational structure into a pre-made template. Our staff of of senior level designers and developers approach each nonprofit design individually and with great attention to your particular needs.
Easy to Learn and Use CMS
Speaking of your needs, because most nonprofit organizations rely on the work of volunteers and part-time employees, it’s essential for their websites to have a content management system that is easy to understand and is quickly learned.
The WordPress CMS is the most user-friendly backend system available, and many of our nonprofit clients have told us how happy they are to have such an easy system to operate. Anyone with even a minimum amount of computer knowledge can quickly add blogs, page content, photos, events, fundraisers and much more. If you can operate your email or social media, you can easily operate the WordPress CMS.
As your new nonprofit website is launched, our team will work with your team to train them on updating the site. Because of its ease of use, our WordPress training usually takes less than an hour.
Working with nonprofit organizations on their websites is one of our favorite parts of our work here at Idea Marketing Group. We have developed a culture of commitment to the communities we serve, so helping nonprofits deliver their message is even more gratifying to our team.
Nonprofit web design must deliver a clear and concise message to the world for the organization to function at its best. Contact Idea today to find out how we can help you deliver your message!
