Websites

It's important that a community group has a website which can be used to keep everybody informed about their activities and events. We can help you create a user-friendly website and provide training on how to update it yourself. We can also provide other digital solutions, including social media, website maintenance and online presentations.

WHAT GOES INTO BUILDING A WEBSITE?

Structure - someone needs to think about the structure and navigation, making it intuitive and user-friendly

Design - colours, fonts, graphics that reflect your brand (usually in your corporate colours, or whatever suits your organisation)

Layout - your website will (probably) need headers, footers, sidebar, various boxes, icons or buttons. These items need to be thoughtfully laid out on a page, with appropriate hierarchy

Content - your copy needs to be organised, spell-checked and proofread

Photos - even if you provide all the images for your website, they will need to be optimised, cut down to size and even retouched. If you don't provide any, stock images might have to be sourced, bought and edited to fit your website.

Functionality - will you need a contact form? A blog? A calendar or even a booking system?

Compatibilty - there are many different browsers, including mobile and tablet ones, and your website will need to display properly and work in all of them. You should also consider responsive design - a layout that changes depending on where it's viewed, i.e. widescreen desktop computer or small mobile phone.

Launch and testing - you website will need to be set up on a hosting server and we will make sure it works in real life, that your contact form send messages, that you can log in to the content management system, that your users can navigate through the website easily. We can also set up an analytics tool that will tell you how many people visit your website and what theyr'e looking at

WHAT ELSE CAN YOU GET?

Training - we can teach you how to use the content management system, how to edit your text, add or change images, etc.

Maintenance - we can keep your website updated for you; your website can sometimes break so we will keep an eye on it and fix it if necessary.

E-newsletter - would you like to keep your tenants or community members informed about your project? Why not send them an e-newsletter, a newsletter that can be emailed out to your contacts whenever you need without any distribution costs! We can design a customised email template, using your logo and corporate colours, or help you set up an automatic marketing campaign.
