    Strategic Website Solutions

    April 10, 2015 7:30 am to 9:00 am

    John Decker Color Headshotweb“Dear Doctor: We have an ailing website. Would you prescribe something that would make my pain go away when I know a donor has looked at it?”

    If only it was that easy!  Of all the challenges facing local fundraisers, the one we all share is frustration with our own, distinctly unique websites.  At our next meeting, April 10, John Decker of Anchor Wave will give us a checklist of things we should be thinking about and perhaps even a prescription on how we might make our websites more donor-friendly.

    John is a web strategist with Anchor Wave, the local firm that has designed, developed and hosted 800 websites in the last 12 years. His job is to assess the prospective client’s current site, identify areas it might want to improve, and present strategies that would help the client reach its various goals.
    There’s no cookie cutter in John’s work.  El Rio Health Center has needs that are far different than those of Ben’s Bells.

    This challenge is intensified for the development officer. We all work in different environments. Our workplace cultures are all totally different. Our development programs are different, too.  Join us April 10 and learn how you might be able to make your own website more successful for you!
