Developing High-Impact Websites for Nonprofits

As competition for attention increases and attention span decreases, nonprofits find themselves competing against large marketing machines and digital distractions for engagement and support. Websites that were adequate just a few years ago seem woefully outdated today. How do you develop a website that's part of your overarching strategic plan, engages your visitors, expands your mission, responds to new developments, and activates more heroes for your cause? And how can you do that all within the limits of a resource-constrained nonprofit? Explore research and concepts from Hollywood storytelling, behavioral science, marketing, Lean methodology, and web design. Learn how to leverage time-tested best practices using the latest tools, techniques, and technology to develop websites that catalyze change.
