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 an existing website with content that can be transferred, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have the results of previous Catchafire website audit projects, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to keep the organization running while closed due to COVID-19

The Museum needs a website that is flexible and easy to use and integrate with other products it is currently exploring (a CRM, online timed ticketing, etc.). The current site is Drupal-based and requires more knowledge and time to manage than staff has available. The new site will streamline the staff's work and make it easier for visitors to find the content they are looking for.
