Get your charity online and make the most of the web
Charities and the internet go hand-in-hand. The ability to reach a wider audience than ever before - with relevant, up-to-date and interactive communications about your charitable organisation - makes a web site an invaluable tool for any charity.
We know how important donations and fundraising are to your charity, and how much they depend on being able to convey your message effectively to as large a market as possible. Give your charity the best chance with a custom built web site, designed and developed specifically to meet the needs of your organisation.
- A content management system (CMS) will allow you to manage every page on your web site. Add photos and videos and almost any other content you can think of to keep your users informed and keep them interested!
- Add news and events quickly and easily. Maintain your charity's presence on the internet with press releases, up-to-the-minute news articles and details of upcoming fundraising events. Then, after the event, let everyone know how it went by updating your events section with picture galleries and more.
- Maximise your exposure with social network integration and RSS. Tap in to the power and sheer volume of users of social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. Publish links and important announcements to a multitude of sites with a single click. Promote users to subscribe or 'follow' your charity on social networks, or via RSS, to ensure they are made aware of new publications in an instant.
- Take donations online securely. Integrate your site with secure online payment providers like PayPal and WorldPay. Use all the tools a bespoke web site can provide to inform and appeal to your audience and provide a means for them to make a donation there and then. In addition, use your CMS to create all the pages you need to explain Gift Aid, standing order, Payroll giving, share donations and any other methods of donation.
With years of experience in web development and software programming, we can advise on best practices and assure you that your site will reach your audience on any computer or mobile device - from desktop machines to the latest smart phones and tablets. Of course, this also means that we will develop your charity's web site to conform to any required accessibility standards.
We also have years of experience with search engine optimisation (SEO), so we can build your web application and work alongside you to ensure your charity has the best chance of being found the way you want it to.
