A great website consists of three things: thought-provoking design, an awesome showcase highlighting an organization’s achievements, & it acts as a communication hub for users. We’re well rooted in web design & make every effort to reflect your branding. Our design practices blend awe-inspiring visuals, modern technologies, and focus on user experience. The first thing we help you with is determining how your website should look with wireframes, mood-boards and then design compositions.
Clean, clear, and powerful graphic design has the potential to springboard even the smallest of startup’s towards legitimacy. It can also play a role as to why a certain organization outperforms its competitors. We’re proud of the work that our clients do and we love to show them off. We design all elements of marketing from annual reports to on-site signage. We also offer a low cost high quality paper with green certified soy ink option to keep the environment and your wallet smiling.
Some call it a black art, we call it fantastically fun! There are several different ways to fundraise online and we’ll help guide you to the ones that make the most sense for you and your target donors: micro-fundraising, auctions, celebrity endorsements, donation systems, mobile donations, planned giving forms, and plenty more. We work with you to determine what your online fundraising needs are, then identify your options, and we can even help you setup the online fundraising campaign and maintain it.
Social media is a huge and ever-growing landscape that can be quite difficult to utilize effectively. We develop social media strategies that focus on building communities, not noise. We evaluate where your organization is, where you want it to go and, exactly how we’re going to get it there. We then zero in on the day-to-day operations by creating monthly, weekly & daily messaging calendars. Most importantly, we measure a campaign's effectiveness monthly to insure success.
The newest addition to marketing tactics, going viral has become a must for many causes looking to gain a lot of exposure around a campaign very quickly. We work with you to define what possible viral ideas would work within your org’s framework and then help you execute these ideas to success.

CMS / CRM
Content Management Systems (CMS) and Constituent Relationship Managers (CRM) are necessary for causes to keep their website content fresh and keep tabs on their list of supporters respectively. We've helped our clients setup CMS' using open-source systems like Wordpress, Drupal, Expression Engine, Tumblr and Wordpress. After long and exhausting research of CRM's specifically catered towards non-profits, we've been most impressed by Nation Builder, Salsa, and CiviCRM.
Keeping track of the progress of a marketing or fundraising campaign is key to establishing its effectiveness and defining its success. With every web project we take on, we always install the free analytics reporting tools by default such as Google Analytics, Wordpress Stats, Drupal Stats and such. We're also very excited about new link tracking methods being used in social media through services like HootSuite and Bit.ly. We even made our own!
