I Think This Is Broken

Have you ever been frustrated by something you see that needs fixing, and you know how to do it, but -- doggone it! -- it's not your job?

That was me last year, trying to find something on the Hope website, and getting frustrated. (I've been a web designer for a few decades, so it especially bugged me!) Then God started putting some things together, and well, now it IS my job!

Hi, I'm Jana Snyder, now the Communications Director at Hope. But this note isn't about me: it's about all of us. The website is for all of us.
  • A good website helps guests feel welcome, and helps them know what to expect when they get here for their first visit.
  • It helps people find out about upcoming events or classes, and how to register.
  • And it can help connect a struggling person with the staff member or group they need.

Now I have some ideas about how to improve the website, but I know that you probably have ideas that I haven't thought of. That's where Hope needs your help. It's your chance to help make something better!

I've created a short survey to gather those ideas. And please hear this: EVEN IF YOU NEVER USE THE WEBSITE, I still want to hear from you!

A couple things you might want to know:

How long will it take? If you just answer questions with a click or a few words, It'll take less than two minutes. A couple optional questions ask for a written response, so total time depends on how much you want to say. But it most likely won't be more than five minutes.

How will you use my info? Your personal info won't be used for anything but this survey. A couple questions give you the option of sharing your name or email, but you don't have to, and even if you do, we won't connect your name or email with your other responses.

Also, if you complete the survey, you can also throw your hat (er, email address) in the ring for a drawing to receive a $50 gift card to Bakesale Treat Parlor!

The last thing I want to ask you for: please fill out the survey right now! Because we all know how easy it is to think "I'll do that later," then never think of it again. We really do want to hear from you!


Thanks for doing your bit to help the Body.
