How We're Different

How We’re Different

Over the years we’ve developed an approach we think produces the best results for the nonprofits we partner with. It may not be perfect for every organization, but take a look. If it sounds like a good fit for your organization, we’d love to talk with you.

Here are some of the things that our clients like about us:

We Focus on Nonprofits IconWe Focus on Nonprofits

We spend all our time thinking and talking about nonprofits. We write about how nonprofits can use the web and built a website platform specifically for nonprofits, too. Our team debates nonprofit technology all the time (sounds like a lot of fun, right?). We’ve written for a bunch of places, including:

If you’re looking for a web company accustomed to building websites for nonprofits, we may be a good fit.

Your Site Should Be a ToolWe Believe Your Site Should Be a Tool

It’s true your website should look good. But it also should allow your nonprofit to actually do more good. It should have a meaningful impact on your organization, such as:

  • Boosting fundraising by inspiring website visitors to become donors and helping you maintain relationships with past donors
  • Increasing volunteerism by connecting you with new volunteers and easing the process of managing volunteer events
  • Raising awareness of your organization by publishing content that resonates with potential supporters and making information easy for them to find
  • Serving your community by sharing educational content or offering tools your community members rely on

We believe your site should deliver measurable outcomes tied to your goals as an organization.

We Won't Lock You In IconWe Won’t Lock You In

We promise we won’t lock you in with proprietary software or long-term contracts. We’re interested in building relationships with nonprofits that want to work with us, not locking folks into doing so. We build our websites on WordPress, an open source content management system. That means you’ll be able to manage your site and make updates to content yourself if you’d like to.

We Give Out Our Cell NumbersWe’re Reachable

We want you to feel like we’re a partner. That’s why we respond to all emails and phone calls, including support questions, within one business day. We’ve dealt with companies that are hard to reach or disappear when you need them most. We have no interest in being one of those companies.

We Offer Expert Support IconWe Offer Support from Nonprofit Marketing Experts

When you have a problem, the last thing you need is to talk to a “support rep” whose goal is to get you off the phone. Our team includes specialists in nonprofit marketing, content strategy, web design, project management and programming. We’ll get you in touch with someone who can actually answer your questions.

We Create a Project that Fits Your Needs IconWe Create a Project to Fit Your Needs

No two nonprofits need the exact same things. Before getting started with your website, we’ll discuss your goals and needs to make sure our platform is a good fit. We’ll also help you decide on a website structure and pages as well as provide tips on your website’s content given your organization’s unique goals.

Interested in a tailor-made approach to your online presence? We also build highly-customized nonprofit websites and offer ongoing marketing engagements.

We Work Within Your Budgetary Constraints IconWe Care About Your Budget

We know your funding is limited. You need to get the most bang for your buck and keep as much money dedicated to serving your community as you can. By offering nonprofit websites at an affordable monthly rate, you don’t have to juggle high upfront costs or wonder how to budget for website expenditures.

For custom nonprofit websites, we generally start by discussing your budget for a project. We then work with you to determine what aspects of your project will produce the greatest return. You may not be able to do everything you’ve dreamed of given certain budgetary constraints. But we’ll help you figure out what’ll be most beneficial to do right now and what can be done down the road.

We Tell You What We Think IconWe Tell You What We Think

We believe our role in every project is to not only bring technical know-how, but also knowledge of what works when it comes to nonprofits and the web. We’ll tell you what we think is best given your situation. And we’ll discuss how to tailor specific best practices to work well for you. If ultimately you decide to go a different direction than what we recommend, well that’s alright. But we’ll always tell you when we think a different approach will produce better results for your organization and the community you serve.

We Build Apps for Nonprofits

In addition to making websites, we also build apps for nonprofits. Check them out to see if any seem helpful to your nonprofit. Many of them are free to use regardless of whether or not you’re building a site with us.

We Use Data to Make Improvements IconWe Use Data to Make Improvements

Without measurement, it’s impossible to know if your website is actually helping your nonprofit do more good. That’s why we share analytics and measurement tips on our blog and include regular analytics reviews for the nonprofits we work with on their ongoing marketing. We love to work with organizations on an ongoing basis, using website data to figure out what’s working well and what can be adjusted. We’re data geeks. And we’re not ashamed to admit it.
