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 content from a previous site, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have graphic designers and writers, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to provide free resources to the community 6500 social media followers.

Our website has always been an educational tool for us to provide our community with valuable information and tools. This consists of an array of personal blog posts, professional articles, and premade tools to help people promote IBD awareness. Our site got corrupted a while back, and we figured it was a good time to incorporate an update. We have a good base and also a good knowledge of Wordpress to start with.
