In case you missed our latest round of Speed Consulting for Nonprofit Websites, here's a summary of expert Mark Rovner's opening comments about what really makes a website a good experience.
What makes a good website a good website:
Don’t leave your common sense at the door
Don’t make them have to think (Recommended resource: Steve Krug's book "Don’t Make Me Think")
Don’t post anything just to make your colleague happy
Don’t post a photo a 10 year old can’t explain to you without reading the caption
Don’t be boring: Fundraising is fundamentally emotional
In your experience, what makes a website great? Do you have any examples to share? If you're having trouble with any of the above points, or need some guidance, just let us know by posting a message and we're happy to help!
For more insight on what can make or break a website be sure to review the selected Sites that Rock and the summary of the websites we critiqued during the event. Missed the webinar or just want to review? Access the recording and slides here!
