Why would a website creation be important for an association/NGO?
What should an NGO website look like? How could an NGO benefit from a website creation ? Having a website has become essential in the life of an NGO. Any association or NGO can communicate its message via a website to a much wider public than before. It is extremely important to reach out to its supporting, as well as its supported people at the same time. A fundraising or an online petition signing campaign cannot be successful without this essential communication tool.
Nicely presented information on the NGO website
Inform its members, partners, funders and environment about its activities: the site is then a communication brochure coupled with an internal newspaper updated in real time, accessible from anywhere.
It can be used to quickly mobilize a large number of people on a topical issue:
- calling for a demonstration
- signing a petition
- participating in a substantive debate, etc.
An added value for your communication
Make yourself known or recognized by developing an essential site in a particular sector. It is then necessary to be able to provide value-added information for the public, that is to say interesting information to which the public does not have access otherwise, at least as easily.
You can, for example: list all innovative associative projects in the environmental field on your NGO website, with their contact details; inform about news in this sector; give answers corresponding to the questions you are asked the most. The advantage of providing this information, which sometimes pays off in normal times, is to attract Internet users to your association and to demonstrate to them the value of your site and therefore of your association. Your NGO website creation project needs a partner in this. Swiss Tomato Digital Agency has all its assets to help you find the best solutions!
Interactive website creation for NGO
Surely the most interesting aspect, the NGO website can be “interactive”. That is to say, offering the opportunity to discuss, to create a link between visitors and the association, or between different visitors. For this, the Internet user can leave a message, participate in a discussion forum or sign up on a mailing list. It corresponds to the idea of debate strongly linked to the associative movement. But the website creation for NGO can be even more beneficial in some further cases. – Develop new activities or new tools for the association:
- registration for activities via the Internet
- dissemination of information listings
- thematic information watch on the network for other associations,
