  •  A challenge many non-profits face is that
    1. their site needs to provide resources to multiple types of people with different goals and
    2. the website is difficult to navigate.
  • A solution: start with stories.
    • Think about the types of people who visit your website currently and people you want to visit your site and describe them. Note what your goal is in that relationship. This is called creating "personas."
  • To create your personas, consider your website's visitors and answer the following questions:
    1. What brought them to your website?
