Fundraising & Communications: Creating a Content Strategy for your Nonprofit Website @ Online
Oct 19 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

A website content strategy will serve as a guide for many of the decisions you’ll make. You’ll know what content you need to develop, what you can reuse or repurpose, and what content is most important. Because it creates clarity about your sites purpose, audience and the outcomes you’re seeking, a content strategy will also guide specific decisions about website design and development.

During this webinar, presenters will explore the benefits (which go far beyond content planning) of creating a clearly defined and documented website content strategy. Presenters will look at:

  • Why you need to develop your content strategy before you start any website design or development work.
  • The elements to include in a website content strategy along with the steps involved in building one.
  • Examples of nonprofits who have benefitted from this content-first approach.

This webinar is for you if you are new to content strategy and are wondering where – and how – to start your nonprofit’s upcoming website build or redesign.

This webinar is hosted by Charity Village.
