When a wrongfully convicted person’s case gains enough traction, social media pages start to become inadequate in effectively representing the cause. While Facebook, Twitter, and other outlets can prove invaluable in updating current supporters on new developments, those who are new to the case may not be able to easily find information that will help them gain a comprehensive understanding of the facts. In these circumstances, a website is an invaluable tool towards advancing the message of injustice in you case.
Our team of web developers will work with you to build a site to tailored to your needs and your case. Examples of pages you may want on your site include:
* A Home page featuring visually appealing imagery and thought provoking text that highlights the most important pages on your site.
*An About page that details your bio, family, and a brief summary of your case, and includes pictures you provide to accentuate your story. This page serves to build a personal connection between yourself and your sites visitors, including potential supporters, journalists interested in your story, even those in the legal system who may be involved in your case.
A Learn the Case page that details the facts of your wrongful conviction, explains why you’re innocent, and contains links to backing documents that support and explain your case. This section is important for the same reasons the About page is important.
A Documents Library page allows you to publicly post paperwork, transcripts, and other forms of evidence for site visitors to look through as they learn your case. This section is invaluable to journalists covering your story, supporters who are acting as amateur investigators, and anyone else who wants a more comprehensive understanding of your case.
A Support page that allows you to collect donations, leads calls to action on your behalf, as well as directs supporters on how to spread the word of your wrongful conviction. A Paypal donation button, links to your social media pages, and any online petitions you have should be included on this page.
All of our website packages include the construction of a free T-Shirt Shop Page that allows you to sell personally branded advocacy shirts at little to no effort while helping boost your legal fund. For more information see our Freedom T-Shirts page.
A Contact page that features you information, as well as that of your attorney, advocates, family, and friends should be included on your site. We can also integrate digital forms for those who wish to contact you through these means.
Your website will feature a Blog/News section that allows you, as well as your family, friends, supporters to create articles to attract attention to your site and cause as a whole. These posts can relate to your case and the circumstances that surround your situation, but they don’t have to. Writing about issues not directly related to your case/wrongful conviction can prove to be powerful beacons that draw people to your story.
These articles can cover a wide range of topics including issues the incarcerated and their loved ones cope with, conditions that prisoners face in correctional facilities, as well as opinion pieces about the criminal justice system, politics, world events, religion, philosophy, and pretty much any other subject you could think to write about.
Diversifying your posts can attract people who aren’t specifically looking for stories of the wrongfully convicted. Many times, those faced with unjust prison sentences are forced to compete over a relatively small pool of wrongful conviction advocates. By appealing to those outside of this circle, you increase your chances of attracting a broad range of untapped potential supporters.
Your Input Matters
To boost the value of the website we encourage you, your family, and your supporters to submit content to the site. Content allows visitors to have more information to research and reviews, as well as increases the chance people will discover your site.
During the setup phase we suggest you create a bio of yourself and a write up about your case. The info you provide, the better your site will turn out. We put our full effort into ensuring your site is professionally crafted, visually appealing, and easily navigable. We can do our best to fill in details for your bio and case information sections but no one knows your story and your case like you.
A professional website require a large amount of time and effort to build. Professionally crafting a site that will impress supporters, media, and even critics is no small task. We refuse to cut corners when it come to building an effective site. As a result, our packages start at $1,500. Click Here for website pricing information.
