Saying that something is "the best" is such a subjective statement. Everyone has their own idea of what it means to be the best. But when it comes to websites, there are always going to be current trends that will dictate which websites are up-to-date and which aren't. In this post, we've used these latest trends to make our picks for 10 Of The Best Association Website Designs of 2016. So if you are in the beginning stages of redesigning your association website, we encourage you to use these 10 websites as your inspiration!
Finally, after hours of carefully planning your sitemap and gathering content from each department in your JCC, it’s time to write your content and place it on your website. Whether you’re starting from scratch or revamping existing content, it’s certainly an intimidating task. But not to worry—after more than 15 years of experience working with JCCs, we’ve seen it all, and we have tons of tips to help you develop and publish great content. Let's get started!
When you’re writing content for your new JCC website, it doesn’t matter if you’re starting from scratch or revamping existing content—you’re going to need to enlist the help of other JCC staff. After all, no one knows the individual departments within your JCC better than the department heads themselves. Don’t rely on existing content, either; there’s no guarantee that it is still accurate. Instead, create a detailed questionnaire that can be sent at once to every single department head in your JCC. Read on to learn what questions to include, and don't miss our free questionnaire download!
So, it's time for a new website for your JCC? That's great! You're probably feeling excited...and a little overwhelmed. After all, a website company is taking care of the design and development, but the content is all on you. That's a lot of work to be responsible for, but don't worry—we've put together a series of posts that will walk you through each step of the web content creation process! The first step in creating your JCC website content is organizing everything into a sitemap.
The time has finally arrived for Accrisoft's annual roundup of the best JCC websites of the year! We had the pleasure of looking through hundreds of JCC websites to make our final selections.
