Web Development

With over a decade of experience serving nonprofit clients, we’ve perfected our process to ensure a close and productive working relationship. Our project managers use the latest tools and methodologies, including Basecamp and a blend of Agile and Waterfall, to deliver a dynamic, efficient, and effective experience. This approach combines purpose, design, and functionality to deliver results tailored to your unique needs and goals.

Our websites are built on responsive and mobile-optimized templates. We create all our projects in WordPress, giving our clients full ownership and the ability to make future edits easily. WordPress is the world’s most popular CMS, known for its security, flexibility, and affordability. As an Open Source software, it has no licensing costs, making it a cost-effective option for nonprofits to create a fully customizable and robust website.

The Process

Step 1

Your journey begins with a comprehensive discovery and strategy phase where we take the time to understand your organization’s history, stakeholders, and offerings. Your website is often the first point of contact for potential supporters and donors, and it’s crucial that it makes a lasting impression and establishes trust. That’s why we employ user experience (UX) methodology to understand and analyze user motivations and behaviors to ensure that your website effectively achieves both their goals and yours. By focusing on good UX, we increase the number of website visitors that convert into engaged supporters and donors.

Step 2

We’ll help you communicate your story effectively so you can advance your mission. Work with our content strategist to align goals and organizational outcomes, analyze your audience’s needs, and define editorial guidelines; then, receive a plan for allocating resources realistically and assigning staff responsibilities. If you need help writing website copy, blogs, or reports, our Senior and Junior writers can craft compelling content that spurs your audience to action.

Step 3

In the design phase, we bring your wireframes to life with stunning, full-color mock-ups that prioritize a mobile-first approach. We’ll work with you to create or gather your logo and branding assets, and use them to create a design that aligns with your organization’s unique style and vision. Even if you don’t have a background in graphic design or experience in visual style, our comprehensive design questionnaire makes it easy for us to understand and deliver a design that truly represents your nonprofit. Let us create a website that not only meets but exceeds your expectations.

Step 4

Our secure and private beta-version development process brings your new website to life. Your new site will be built on a private server, ensuring that it won’t impact the performance of your current website or be visible to the public before it’s ready. When the beta-version is complete, we’ll share it with you for review and work together to ensure that it functions seamlessly before it goes live. Get a sneak peek of your new website before anyone else and ensure it’s perfect before launch.

Step 5

Ensure that your new website is flawless before it goes live with our rigorous Quality Assurance (QA) testing process. We’ll put your new site through its paces, testing it on standard browsers, mobile devices, webform, and payment integrations. Only when you give us your approval we’ll upload it to your server and make it available to the public. Trust us to ensure your new website is fully functional and ready to engage your audience.

Step 6

Before your website even launches, we begin training your team on the specific modules and plugins used for your site. You can confidently move forward so that you can make basic updates no matter your previous experience. Our team is available to help with any troubleshooting for 30 days post-launch. If you do not have a web developer on your staff to handle regular maintenance, we offer sustainability plans that are flexible and affordable.
