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!)
Additional Details

We need a complete overhaul of our website. It contains a lot of information, but over the last decade, it has gotten extremely scattered and madly outdated. We want to split the site into two parts: the front end, which is friendly, humanizing the organization, and has basic answers. Then a "deep dive" section, where people who want to scour regulations can find more answers. I only have basic WordPress knowledge, and am out of my depth reinventing this site, but very willing to help.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a website and people working on copy, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have an existing site to use as reference (good or bad), and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to focus on marketing to expand knowledge of who we are and how we can help people in manufactured home communities.

Our current website is very outdated and impersonal. Updating this will help our overall appearance and show the 200,000 people living in manufactured housing in Minnesota that we're a member-driven organization that they would want to join to help protect their rights as homeowners.

Project Plan

Prep: Share Information
  • Volunteer Manager provides Professional with an outline of the Organization’s needs and goals for the new website, which should include any specific features that are required (e.g., contact forms, mobile responsive design, member sign in, etc.)
  • Volunteer Manager provides approved content and images to be used for the new website (e.g., About Us copy, Mission Statement, staff bios and images, etc.)
  • Volunteer Manager provides Professional with links to any existing online presence that the Organization has (e.g., social media, blog, existing website, etc.)
  • Volunteer Manager registers Organization's domain name with a web host, if necessary
Milestone 1: Kick-off Discussion
  • Volunteer Manager and Professional connect to discuss the timeline and scope of the website project, including: the number of pages or sections for the new website, specific features and plugins requires, look and feel for the website (themes), target date for initial review, target date for website launch
  • Professional reviews information provided and makes recommendations for which CMS application to use
  • Volunteer Manager signs up for the selected CMS application, and provides Professional with credentials to create the website
Milestone 2: Build & Review
  • Professional uses the materials provided and agreed upon timeline to build the website
  • Volunteer Manager reviews the in-progress website and provides feedback
  • Professional completes any required functional QA
Milestone 3: Website Launch
  • Professional provides final website for approval to launch
  • Volunteer Manager approves the website for launch, or requests approval from any stakeholders
  • Professional launches the site on Organization's domain name
  • Professional troubleshoots any issues that may arise immediately after launch
  • Professional instructs the Volunteer Manager on how to update content and maintain the website going forward
