Website Construction (CMS-Based)

Project Details

What We Need
  • Development of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS)
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: This project is for a website built with a Content Management System (CMS), such as Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, Drupal, or Weebly . A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a web designer, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a requirements document, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to expand our readership 500000 and better inform the public.

We are expanding our content and now need a new look and feel that better grabs the attention of our growing reader base. Our goals are to increase site exploration, increase return visitors, and improve engagement.
