Patrick Ferraro, marketing coordinator at Guidestar, summarizes what Internet users expect to find when they visit a Website: “An effective Website needs to be more than just an on-line brochure with contact information, a mission statement, and some bullet points. Visitors go on-line looking for more than just reading material-the want opportunities to act.”
