5 REASONS WHY YOUR TRADE UNION NEEDS A NEW WEBSITE DESIGN
1) Is the look of your website likely to attract members and encourage them to join up? If not then it is time for an upgrade. Union members are still browsing on the internet and if they do not like what they see and find it difficult to join, then the chances of them exiting your web site are far greater.
2) Are you fed up with a clunky, out dated, un manageable content management system (CMS)? Have you been putting up with your CMS for years and have never bothered to ask your web developers to change it? Is your trade union CMS built on a customised platform that you are tied into? If all this sounds far too familiar then we can design and build you a completely new website on an open source WordPress CMS platform – they are so easy to use and will make web updates and site changes a breeze!
3) Does your website work on a mobile phone? That is, are members ale to easily navigate your site using their iPhone or tablets? If not, again it’s time to ditch the old site and get a new one built specifically for all devices. Known as responsive web design, your web interface can now automatic resize to the screen size.
4) Has your website got all the social media plug ins? Are you blogging and publishing content on a regular basis? Do the words Pinterest, Instagram or Google+ seem foreign ? If so, then your trade union movement is missing out on some very effective marketing platforms that can be integrated into your website. All trade unions should be reaching out to their members and updating them with information on these very handy and accessible platforms. Blogging and posting news to your trade union members has never been easier on one of our WordPress websites.
5) Lastly, are you just fed, bored and fed up with the look of the current site? If nothing has been done to spruce it up in years then it’s really time for a website overhaul, especially with the design elements, user interface & content.
