    Digital marketing, branding & website strategy for nonprofits

    Website Design

    An outdated, messy website stands between you and your mission. We’ll build and implement a new web design based on your audience and strategic goals.

    Brand Strategy

    Branding is all about being memorable. We’ll help you stand out in the minds of donors, volunteers, and beneficiaries with strategic brand identity and expression.

    Online Marketing

    Make sure all of your nonprofit’s online marketing channels are working together to raise awareness, funding, and impact—from donation pages to newsletters.

    Make sure your nonprofit website is answering donors’ questions, guiding them to take action, and paving the way for your impact to grow. (And preventing some staff headaches, too!)

      Is your nonprofit website making life harder, not easier?

      Many impact organizations grow faster than their websites can keep up. And that’s a good thing because it means you’re bringing impact to your mission.

      At the same time, though, outdated websites become clunky, messy, confusing, and tangled. Your message is both overextended and diluted—trying to reach everyone but in reality reaching no one.

      Your programs evolve, but your website doesn’t.

      Take a minute and ask yourself:

      • Is your purpose, mission, and impact crystal clear?
      • Can people find what they’re looking for?
      • Does the visual design scream “early internet”?
      • Are there tons of words, but too few real messages getting across?
      • Can your staff keep your programs, images, and reports up to date?
      • Do funders know what you do and how you do it?
      • Does your website create more frustration than it solves?
      • Are there so many problems you don’t even know where to start?

      If these sound familiar, you aren’t alone!

      Most nonprofits don’t need a “new website.”

      If you update your nonprofit website with just another nonprofit website, then you’ll get something that falls into the same trap. Soon it’s outdated, things get confusing, the problems start stacking up…

      Before long, you could go back through the bullet list above and find yourself answering the same questions in the exact same way.
      So what’s the answer?

      Most nonprofits need a better website strategy.

      Upfront planning and thorough strategy is what prevents your nonprofit website redesign from immediately running into the exact same problems.

      You don’t need a website, you need a revamped strategy. One that’s based on:

      • Your core values
      • Your mission and vision
      • Your specific audience’s needs, expectations, and desires
      • Your fundraising strategy—current and future!
      • Your programs and operations
      • Your vision for the future

      This kind of strategy takes time to build. It’s not something you can create from a template, and it’s not the type of website redesign that’s done in a week.

      But when strategy is done right, you’ll get a website that makes life easier, not harder.
