Internet Advocacy Roundtable: Upgrading Your Organization's Website: Wholesale Redesign, Adding Apps, or Something In-Between?
Thursday, July 24, 2014 at 12:00 pm ET
The role of your website has evolved in recent years. So much of what we do now includes social media and applications. At some point your organization has to upgrade its website. But there are choices to be made. You could opt for a complete overhaul--new design, new content management system, intgerated constitutent relations management, video streaming, events, etc.--or you could spruce up the design and add functionality ala carte, relying on plug-ins and apps (custom or off the shelf) to make your website more useful to your mission. Navigating these decisions is not always simple. Deciding on whether to use a turnkey solution or a best in breed hybrid approach needs the input of an experienced expert.
So this month's Internet Advocacy Roundtable brings together a panel of experts with a lot of experience addressing all of these concerns. Join Anne Dougherty of RadCampaign, Ryan Ozimek of PicNet and Alan Rosenblatt of turner4D for another useful discussion at the July 24th Internet Advocacy Roundtable.
