Example Site Wednesday: Eco-Paws

As another Wednesday rolls around, so does another example site! This week we are showcasing an awesome site with a great mission. Eco-Paws is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping pets everywhere. Their site is simple, consistent, and great looking. Take a look for yourself:

Helping those who do not have the voice to help themselves

Here at Webs, we are suckers for simple, organized, and effective websites, and Eco-Paws definitely fits the bill. Check out some of the Webs features they implement to make their site awesome:

  • Facebook Connect is the easy way to let visitors sign up to be members of your site. Getting your site involved with social media is a great way to raise awareness for your site and drive traffic.
  • Videos are a great source of content that keep visitors engaged on your site. People are more likely to share videos with their friends, making it a useful resource to raise awareness about your site.
  •  FAQs are a great way to answer some common questions about your site or just let visitors learn more about you and what you do.

As a new organization with a new website, it’s really important for Eco-Paws to let people know just who they are, what they stand for, and what their mission is. An “About” page is perfect for this, and Eco-Paws has a great “Who We Are” page that does all of this.

Here are some tips for when you are writing out your own “About” page:

  • Tell a story about your organization that captures its essence. This is a great way to introduce yourself as well as keeping people engaged and wanting to learn more.
  • Let people know your credentials. Let them know why you are doing what you are doing and why they should listen to you.
  • Share with your visitors what they can expect from you as an organization. Let them know your mission and what your values are.
  • Include ways for them to get to know you better whether it be a link to your contact page, or ways to stay in contact through social media.

It’s also a great idea to use pictures to help tell the story of your organization. People want to know who you are, so use real pictures of yourself, members, or office. If you liked this week’s example site, or if you know of a site that deserves to be showcased, leave a comment below telling us!

Until next time,
Happy Site Building!

    (i used to use that template and it’s a shame the tape-bullet-points are unchangeable…)

    Nice website there! I like the cute images of the pets on the “Project Rescue” page! 🙂 and “Helping those who do not have the voice to help themselves.” is a really good slogon too! The “Who We Are” and “FAQ” pages are also useful.

    Please could I suggest my website http://thecybernettvsite.webs.com Thanks Webs! 🙂

    Hello Webs, I really like this example site you have posted. They really show how you can fully customize any template, in this case, the Hip hop theme. I also really like the idea of the site. The purpose for it is very serious and shows how Webs can really help save and change lives.

    Please consider my website as one of your future example sites. I really think that my site could be a big site. I have spent months and months working on it and I really utilize the applications that Webs provides. Thanks a lot Webs for your service and your dedication and time to create your fabulous website, http://webs.com/
