24 © EurActiv.com SOME WEB HINTS - CONTENT Write for the web, no ‘brochure turned into webpages’ Do surveys or user panel or editorial board Define the audience, strcutrue accordingly (eg citizens & egov vs policy & press) You are politicla bodies: support debates, link to NGO’s, industry, media, even political parties? And also EU and other countries Of course at least partly multilingual, ‘from any page’

25 © EurActiv.com SOME WEB HINTS – STRUCTURE Organise by topics, or by user group (citizens vs policy/press), not by dpt of your organisation (main problem of Europa website) No Flash presentation: directly homepage Homepage with fresh content (from you or others) Many horizontal cross-references 2 or maximum 3 clicks to any page

26 © EurActiv.com SOME WEB HINTS – TECHNICAL Compatibility with 4 year old browsers, of course not only MS IE No frames ! Facilitate links from outside / steady URL structure Database driven, no flat html: facilitate updates Fast loading time!

27 © EurActiv.com SOME WEB HINTS – PROMOTION Readers don’t come by themselves… communicate on all your own supports (from letterhead to posters) Update / newsletter (‘opt in’ or legal ‘opt out’: leverage existing BtoB lists) Advertising (online) or co-branding events / publications Work with larger portals (national or specialised, depending on objective) Keep exchanging ideas and learning: moving target!
