TIPSHEET Digital Life Hacks For Arts and Cultural Organizations 1 Know your audiences. It's important for you to consider the unique needs of your your prospective visitors, new and existing members, and donors when they come to your website, so you can create the best web experience for each group. A strategic web experience should incorporate both the goals of your audiences and the goals of your organization. 2 Share how you're different. With so much competition out there, it's critical to show what sets your organization apart from other organizations in your area. Use your website as a platform to share the impact your organization makes on its community and the world.

Simple and intuitive navigation is the cornerstone of a positive web experience. Can your visitors and members find the information they need quickly and easily? Consider conducting user experience testing to determine if the information your site visitors are looking for is just a click away. 4 Use clear, bold calls to action. Every page of your website should have clear calls to action, such as "Buy at ticket," "Become a member," "Donate," and "Stay connected." Encourage your site visitors to take next steps, for example: "Become a member and save on admission!" 5 Keep content fresh. Is everything on your website up to date and accurate?
