5 Best Web Design Practices For Nonprofits


Passing the Two-Minute Test

Not many people hand out money to strangers. A potential donor will want to get to know your organization first. Sixty percent of donors hop online to visit your website prior to parting with their money. You have roughly two short minutes of their time to convince them that you are a worthwhile cause. Can your site pass the Two-Minute-Test?


Succinctly state your mission and how you accomplish it. For example, "Saving horses from slaughter with rehabilitation, training, fostering and placement." Also, if you can easily quantify your efforts, include that in a prominent location (i.e. "468 Horses Saved").


It's Good To Provoke People?


When it comes to greatness, absolutely provoke!

Death to Dead Ends


Don't lose your site traffic prematurely.

Great incoming traffic? Check.

Compelling content? Check.

Are your visitors still bailing out on your site after a page or two?

Each page builds a step in your visitor's journey, and as such, needs to have a clearly-defined purpose. Many pages have great content, but don't walk people through the journey. Visitors meet the dreaded Dead End when they are on a page that doesn't hold their hand through to the next step.
