With 51% of Facebook’s referral traffic now coming from mobile and more than two-third’s of Twitter users being mobile, many nonprofits are finally starting to come to the realization that their social media campaigns are doomed unless they embrace a mobile-first approach to online communications and fundraising. Your nonprofit must now assume that the majority of website and blog content you share on social networks is being read on a mobile device and if that content is not mobile compatible, then any attempt to inspire a followerer or fan to donate or get more involved will fail.
The easiest way to ensure that your website and blog are mobile compatible is to embrace responsive design. As a follow-up list from last year’s 7 Responsively Designed Nonprofit Websites to Study and Learn From, below is a new selection of 11 exceptional, responsively designed nonprofit websites. Pay particular attention Heifer International. Their new site is gorgeous. Hopefully, your nonprofit has a new website on your To Do List for 2014-15 and you can study and learn from the websites listed below. Be sure to experience each of them on a desktop, tablet, and smartphone – and if possible, on two new screens we’ll be paying more attention to and designing for in the coming years – a smartwatch and smart TV.
