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, or Drupal. A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
Additional Details

We currently have a website with Weebly, but it's outdated and clunky, not user friendly and confusing. We would like to change over the CMS to something like Squarespace where we have the option to create a blog and possibly a newsletter.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a website, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a dedicated staff member to this project, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to present high quality programming and educational opportunities in the fields of visual arts, performing arts, history, and other humanities to enrich the lives of our community and the broader region

Our website isn't working for us. It's so clunky and it has custom code in parts of it that I do not understand and Weebly will not offer support because of the customization. We need a fresh, clean, fun on brand look and feel to the website. We want visitors and members to have a pleasant experience when they visit our website, and not one in which they are faced with confusion and errors.
