Every month in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Cause Communications Community meets to talk shop, share knowledge, and enjoy the company of other nonprofit communications professionals (and those who support them professionally).
April's topic was "Website Redesign Dos and Absolute Don'ts." We heard from the Greenbelt Alliance, a nonprofit advocating for conscious urban growth in the Bay Area. The organization just underwent a massive overhaul of its website, moving from an all-HTML site to a content management system.
Here are the ten lessons learned that its communications manager Sara Barz shared with us.
We also touched on the importance of shaping the RFP and ongoing contracts to have the best relationship possible with developers and designers. (To that end, I shared these TechSoup resources about contractor RFPs and contract management.)
Is your organization considering a website redesign? Have you gone through one? What do you think of these tips?
