Wired Impact Values

How We’re Different

Wired Impact exists because we believe that nonprofit organizations of all types and sizes can use the web to drive their missions forward. Over the years we’ve honed an approach we think produces the best results for the nonprofits we partner with, starting with powerful websites and helpful advice.

Our Values & Commitments

Wired Impact Values Relationships

Relationships make good happen.

We believe forming relationships helps us build websites that make good happen. We aim to pair our knowledge of how the web works with an organization’s insights and understandings to make a website that matters.

Wired Impact Values Empowering Nonprofits

Knowledge empowers nonprofits.

We believe it’s our job to empower the organizations we work with to use their website to bring more good into the world. We also think we can empower nonprofits we don’t work with by providing helpful content and resources.

Wired Impact Values Internet Tool

The Internet is a tool.

We believe the internet is a tool that can be used to create a lot of good. And we understand that we need to do our part to ensure it’s being used in this way.

Wired Impact Values Data

Decisions are driven by data.

We believe tangible, measurable results should drive all that we do. By focusing on results, we can identify why we’re doing what we’re doing and how well we’re doing it.

 

These principles guide our team and the work we do with nonprofit clients every day. In practice, we think they make us pretty different from other companies out there:

Wired Impact PlatformWe Built a New Approach to Nonprofit Websites

We want to help as many organizations as possible harness the power of effective web design. To do that, we created a WordPress-based website platform that’s geared toward the specific needs of nonprofits—from features and monthly pricing to hands-on support.

We Focus on Nonprofits IconWe Focus on Nonprofits

We spend all our time thinking and talking about nonprofits. In addition to the website platform, we write about how nonprofits can use the web on our nonprofit marketing blog and help some clients with ongoing marketing needs. Our team debates nonprofit technology all the time (sounds like a lot of fun, right?). We’ve written for a bunch of places, including:

Your Site Should Be a ToolWe Believe Your Site Should Do Something

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 InWe 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 Listen to Your Goals

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 mission.

We Work Within Your Budgetary Constraints IconWe Care About Your Budget

We know your operations 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.

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 marketing. 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, 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 Think Data is Empowering

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 proper Google Analytics setup when building your website. We love to work with organizations 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.
