The Nonprofit Association of Oregon (NAO) will offer the Complete Nonprofit Website Toolkit series beginning on Tuesdays beginning Jan. 13 and concluding Feb. 10. All 90-minute sessions will begin at 10 a.m.

The five-week series will review best practices for accessibility, mobile-optimized sites, and reinforcing your organization’s online brand. The series will also take a look at the content management systems (CMS) that can give even your least tech-savvy staff members the tools to update website content themselves. Finally, presenter Eric Leland will talk about how your website content works alongside your email, direct mail, and social media efforts to create your organization’s communications mix.

Webinar attendees will learn to define goals for how a website will serve an audience; best practices for designing an accessible, usable, and polished website; compare content management system (CMS) options; how to make sure a website shows up well on search engines; and create an organization’s website action plan with next steps and action items for an improvement process.
