The integrated online quick-win plan

Within six weeks you receive a comprehensive quick-win action plan that leaves no stone left unturned and that will allow you to leverage the full value of your current and future online fundraising capability.

Usability testing & analysis

hjc recognizes the importance of usability testing and analysis to fully appreciate why a visitor to a charity or non-profit’s website has landed there and how they spent their time. In this case, usability is the relationship between the website and the people who use it. Visitors to a charity or non-profit website must always be viewed as potential or existing donors; if a visitor has a bad experience the likelihood of them returning will no doubt be reduced substantially. For it to be effective, the website should allow visitors to accomplish their tasks in the simplest and easiest way possible.

Our in depth user behaviour and motivation testing backed up by over 15 years experience of building charity and non-profit websites ensures that our philosophy of putting the user first is fully implemented. Whether you are redesigning your current site or searching for quick-wins to reduce the barriers that get in the way of your visitors doing what they set out to do, our full usability testing and analysis provides you with the data-driven recommendations to make the right choices for change.

Website development project management

hjc takes a holistic approach to its fundraising and technology work and when it comes to building websites there’s no exception to the rule. We are committed to advancing charities and non-profits through offline and online fundraising initiatives and, for over ten years, a cornerstone of this commitment has been to help the non-profit community build websites. We are unique in that we offer online and integrated fundraising expertise with design and development experience when building charity and non-profit websites. Our work can begin at the discovery stage and take you all the way through to post-launch training with everything in between. All website builds are different and, through our experience, we provide you with the components based on your specific requirements.
