Website Setup and Design
WMS can get your website set up and running in as little as a few weeks! And it will be one that YOU can update and maintain yourself, easily and quickly.
First, I use WordPress, a powerful yet easy-to-use platform that can expand with the needs of your organization and that requires little to no coding. It’s also easy to link to online donation/payment pages, email signups, and social media.
Second, I recommend a third-party hosting service (our preference is DreamHost) to keep costs down and provide high-level technical support. You own your domain and have control over it, unlike some free sites (blog post coming soon about this critical piece). And you can manage your own email addresses easily and without hassle OR extra cost.
Third, you’ll get basic training on how to add new content (text, photos, even new pages), update email addresses, and perform basic site maintenance as part of every package.
Website Add-Ons and Plugins
I’ve researched and used many low- and no-cost services and plugins for email marketing/outreach, donation/payment processing, and advocacy. All of our recommendations are compatible with WordPress, so it’s easy to set these up on your site. You don’t need to spend $40 — or more — per month on extra services when there are solid, lower-cost alternatives, especially for small organizations.
I also install free backup and security plugins on your WordPress site, so that you can rest easy knowing your site is safe.
Words Words Words
Having a pretty website or a big email list isn’t enough. It’s also important to convey your message accurately and concisely in words.
Clear, concise language on your website and in your emails and social posts — with no grammatical or typographical errors — is critical to presenting your organization’s best face and to conveying the kind of organization you have.
I will help write and edit your copy so that your organization’s mission and programs shine through!
Graphics Tell Your Story
The web is a visual place and having graphics that tell your story are important in communicating properly. We can help you find free visuals that will make your website beautiful and informative.
Wild Moon Services offers an introductory training session as part of every contract so that you or your staff can update your site easily and quickly and not have to pay for every change you want to make. You will learn how to add or change text and photos, make and upload blog posts, and even add pages. This also saves you valuable time, since you won’t have to explain to someone what you want, review it, and then approve it.
