Our Best Resources for UX Design & Content

The main purpose of great UX (user experience design) is to provide a meaningful and valuable experience to your users. Who wouldn’t want that? If your website’s UX isn’t optimized and complete with messaging that ties back to your organization’s goals, you run the risk of creating confusion and frustration for your users. That disconnect can ultimately have a negative impact on your organizational goals such as decreased membership, donations, volunteers, enrollment, etc.

Ensuring a satisfying user experience involves effective user research, website technology, structure, and content that caters to your audience’s needs. That can be a big lift.

Not sure where to start? Here are our top resources for UX design & content to help you get there:

Website Evaluation Kit

Your website’s job—its only job, really—is to blend the organization’s goals with the needs, wants, and tasks of your users. But how do you ensure that your website is performing well with your audiences? Ask yourself these questions: What is your page load time? Are you populating the right content? Can users easily accomplish tasks on every page? That’s the value of our Website Evaluation Kit.

After 20 years of aiding mission-driven organizations with their websites, we’ve identified six dynamics that define your website’s overall effectiveness—and you can evaluate how successfully your organization is reaching each one. Get started:

Web Accessibility: What It Is, Why You Need It, How to Get It

According to the U.S Census, 61 million Americans have some form of disability, meaning that accessibility cannot be an afterthought when constructing your website. The design of your website needs to meet the needs of all of your users the second they land on your front page.

Our accessibility expert and VP of Technology, Stephen Tidmore, has put together this simple how-to guide explaining the ins and outs of web accessibility and how to ensure your organization takes steps to include every user in your website design process.

The first step to effectively managing your content is through a website content audit. It’s a good thing we have a template just for that—right?

After downloading this spreadsheet template and completing an inventory evaluation of your website, you’ll have everything organized and tracked—clearing the way for you to improve your organization’s content.
