Welcome to the Accrisoft Blog. The purpose of this collection is to share our team's domain expertise with you to help you make the best website, digital marketing, and software decisions for your organization. We have decades of experience working with Associations, Chambers of Commerce, Economic Development Organizations, JCCs, Real Estate Associations, and Nonprofits.

Because let's face it: The internet is the fastest growing industry ever known to mankind. It has completely changed the way that we all run our businesses and organizations, and there's no going back. With that being said, it is essential to adapt to this rapidly changing environment. While the internet has made our operations processes easier, the web is still a complex being that requires guidance, knowledge, and expertise. That is where we at Accrisoft come in to help guide the way.
The overall website design is the first thing visitors notice when they land on your website, and this can easily influence their opinion of your organization. Obviously, it’s very important to have a up-to-date website built for users in order to make a good first impression. This blog covers both the basics and some in-depth tips on how to do best design or update your website this year.
It’s a new year, and you know what that means...a new lineup of the top design trends! We hunkered down and put in hours of research, and we found ten design trends for nonprofits to try out in 2017. Based on our research, it looks like this might be the year we start to see a significant move away from minimalism. Expect to see more purely decorative elements, more asymmetry, more color, and more animation. Gradients will continue to make their comeback, and so will serif fonts!
At this point, you have sent out a request for proposal (RFP) to various web agencies. Now comes the moment of truth – choosing a web development company to build the perfect website for your nonprofit.
If you sent out a well-prepared RFP, then you should have a few quality web development companies on your list of contenders to choose from.
But it can be tough to distinguish what makes one company stand out from the others.
A website RFP is sent out by your organization to dozens of web design agencies in order to determine the best agency suited to meet your website needs. It also gives the website company a chance to understand your project better.
In this blog, we strip away all of the fluff of writing a grant proposal, and the simple guideline outlined below will help you craft persuasive and compelling grant proposals.

To make your grant search for a website easier, we have included a quick and simple way to find potential grant funders and lengthen your list of options when the time comes to start applying.
One of the most common questions we get is, “How much does it cost to build a new website?
It depends. A website can cost anywhere from $8,000 to $80,000 depending on your requirements.
A better question would be, “How much does it cost to build YOUR new website?”
So, you’ve decided that your nonprofit website is due for a redesign. Get ready for an exciting, action-packed few months! Redesigning your website is a big undertaking, but when you take it step by step, it’s totally manageable. For many nonprofits, one crucial first step must happen before you can even get the project off the ground: You must convince your board of directors (or leadership team) that redesigning your website is a good idea.
It is my strong belief that the Internet is the fastest moving industry humankind has ever experienced. That's why it's so important to regularly update your website. This blog post is the introduction to our new series on the 5 steps of redesigning your nonprofit website.
