So you’ve decided to run a charity site (or sites) through WordPress. That’s a completely reasonable decision you’re unlikely to regret. It’s free to use (great for operations working on limited budgets), extremely popular (meaning there’s a vast community to help you), and mixes solid templates with great customizability (so you can put as much work into it as you like).
It does, however, consign you to spend quite a lot of time getting to grips with how this hyper-successful platform works. Though it’s far from being the most complicated or hard-to-learn CMS out there, it isn’t something you can master right away — and since it wasn’t designed for charity sites in particular (originally being a blogging platform), there are steps you’ll need to take to make it your ideal online foundation.
In this post, we’re going to look at some actions you can take to make the most of the opportunities presented to you by WordPress. In the end, you should be able to cut your costs, improve your fundraising, and see various general improvements. Let’s get started.
