Websites are an integral way to communicate with your audience and engage them to take action, from signing petitions to donating money to spreading the word about your organization. But most people don’t know how to lay out their website to get more supporters to sign those petitions, donate that money and spread the word. We’ll walk you through best practices in website design, including how best to lay out a form, how to get someone to click a button, how to best orient your audience around a campaign and why it’s important for your website to be responsive.
This training is suited for anyone who wants to learn more about how they can leverage a website to be a tool for increasing engagement, fundraising and outcomes. This session is open to any position, not just designers and developers.
