Please see the attached jpg. This is the best design I could come up with, but I'm hoping someone out there can come up with something better.
On the jpg, you will find all the elements and information I would like to include on the home page. This is the layout I've come up with, use this or suggest something better.
I like the idea of old woodcut print birds. But if you have a better idea that's great. The birds in my sample are from istock. I like the cute cartoony characters that some site's have but I'm not convinced that style is for us.
We are looking for something big and bright, easy to navigate, and very web 2.0.
As mentioned above our target market is churches and charities. Our focus is on providing basic online marketing training to empower these organizations. To give them control of their online presence, to help them to build community and establish relationships with their congregation/donors.
These services also appeal to solopreneur, small business start-ups with limited resources.
