Using Your Website Effectively

Utilising your Charity Edit website effectively, can help you save valuable time and money. 

Here are five simple steps to get your website to work for you.

When holding events such as fundraising evenings make sure to utilise your website effectively and get it to work for you.

  1. Create a booking form to obtain all the booking details you require from your attendees.
     
  2. This form can be submitted directly to the member of staff who is responsible for collating bookings. You can do this easily with Charity Edit.
     
  3. Create an event in your Events Calendar – and include a link to a booking form.
     
  4. Enter the events’ promotional news and details into your Latest News section which should be shown on your Charity Edit home page.   Within this Latest News article – again put a link to the booking form specifically designed in relation to this event.
     
  5. If you use Twitter or Facebook – broadcast the event through these medias and include a link to the booking forms.
     
  6. If you email to supporters  of your charity then you can include a link to the news article which will already include a link to the booking form.

Once you have entered the details into an Events Calendar, Latest News and created a booking form, you will no longer have to locate information or details again and again as you simply direct everyone to your Charity website for details.

Using your charity website as a sales and marketing tool to promote events and raise funds as well  as an administration tool to collate booking information will help save you valuable time and money.  

Getting quicker responses and also saving money on print.  Promoting your events in the latest news section on your charity website home page will give more publicity and better attendance.

Don’t forget – link your booking form to your event to gain sign ups.
