Join Dalya Massachi -- veteran nonprofit writer, editor, and writing coach -- and learn to develop the website content your nonprofit needs to better engage your readers!

Whether you are responsible for strategizing about your nonprofit website, writing the content, or both, you can create or upgrade your online presence to inspire more of your readers to get engaged with your nonprofit.  


We will show you, step-by-step, how to ensure that your content is web reader-friendly, while stressing your unique and timely community impact.


As you know, your website forms an essential part of your organization's marketing. It needs to deliver compelling content that your readers eagerly engage with. The words and pictures have to jump off the screen and meet your readers where they are. But actually planning, developing, and promoting that copy for maximum effect can be a challenge.

If you have been putting off making needed changes to your website, are not sure what will make the most impact, or just need some detailed feedback…this webinar is for you!

During this interactive, hands-on webinar we will walk you through:

Step 1: How to Gather the Info You Need for a Successful Website

  • How to identify the top 3 questions on your reader’s mind

  • How to make sure your website addresses what your readers REALLY want to know

  • How to use a Swipe File

Step 2: How to Ensure You’re Using Today’s Best Practices

  • How to write for website visitors’ reading style

  • How to listen for the ideal “sound” online

  • How to reframe from “we” (the organization) to “you” (the reader)

  • How to use links strategically

  • How to incorporate effective nonprofit storytelling

  • How to issue effective Calls to Action

  • How to get started with Search Engine Optimization

Step 3: How to Wear Your Editor’s Cap

  • How to be concise and accessible

  • How to proofread like a pro

  • How to use the Editing Checklist

  • How to enhance your copy with images

** In this webinar, we will do a couple live mini-reviews of websites that show several of the content-related issues we’ll cover. After you register, we will send you an email asking if you'd like us to consider reviewing your organization's website during the live webinar. **
