Social Entrepreneurs

This plan is often best for social entrepreneurs, though it is quite flexible if your budget is not.

We only work for social impact organizations, building WordPress websites which leverage a starting template with a well defined process. With this approach we can hone in on three sizes of projects, this helps us to promote transparency, efficiency, user-focused results, and a tight 8-week production cycle.
This portfolio piece is a good illustration of the quality of work to expect at the $4k level. Please contact us with any questions you may have!
When you sign a deal with us, we give you the gift of donating a basic WordPress website to a client of your choice, learn more here.

Pro Bono

For Nonprofits

When a new client signs a web deal, we donate a basic website to a nonprofit of their choice!

We only work for social impact organizations, building WordPress websites which leverage a starting template with well defined process. With this approach we can hone in on three sizes of projects, this helps us to promote transparency, efficiency, user-focused results, and a tight 8-week production cycle.
For probono work, we set you up with everything needed to get your content and site structure prepared. Once completed, we then sprint through the web work and launch within a few days. The amount of labor donated comes out to about 30% of our profits, or 1/5 the labor on a full site. We can get quite a bit done with this budget!

Our Process

An 8-Week Production Cycle

Your project will be completed eight weeks from kickoff, which will be scheduled after project acceptance. Projects can start within days or up to two weeks out, depending on our current workload. Please review our project management template for a more visual and detailed example of our process.

Discover

Duration: 2 weeks
Completion: 15%

In this phase, we meet to discuss the project, clarify any open questions, and begin to gather data needed for a successful website. In many ways this is the most important step in the process. To get the right traction, trajectory, and timelines established it is crucial to understand the scope, style, and services you would like to have in place. We separate your most important features from the bells-and-whistles, allowing us to provide our low-pricing model to you — while still delivering a high-value site.

At every step of the way, working with us is an open collaboration. We share with you a login to our online project management platform to let you be (to whatever degree you would like) a part of the dialogue and give you visibility into our work, internal communications, and timelines. Our process is about delivering value, building trust, and empowering your organization to take the reins of your tech!

Requests: Please allow 10-40 hours to prepare content and photography. We will have a pre-kickoff meeting to ask you a series of questions and prepare a content guide for your team. This will help you draft content and help us understand project specifics, your key audience(s), vision, and mission.

Design

Duration: 4 weeks
Completion: 75%

The goal is to find the right aesthetic for your organization in a way that speaks to your visitors. This process is the longest phase, with multiple iterations, concepts, and considerations. Priorities are determined and systematically checked off the list.

We begin by developing a style guide, creating wire-frames for each page, designing custom sliders, then move to implement our design concept. After 1-2 revisions we import and stylize your content, then set up templates for you to easily manage your design, content, and create new pages.

Requests: During this phase, we would ask you set aside 1-4 hours each week to provide feedback on design iterations, submit any photography, approve / submit stock photography choices, and create content for sliders (if they are in your plan). We recommend professional head shots or a minimum of iPhone7S portrait-mode quality photos.

Develop

Duration: 2 weeks
Completion: 95%

We will configure and implement all plugins and develop custom features as outlined. We complete the pre-launch checklist, followed by quality assurance checks to ensure consistency across devices and browsers.

Requests: We recommend setting aside 4-6 hours, in 2-hour blocks, for WordPress training, in person or w/ video and screen-sharing. This covers content management, event management, donation drives, using special tools such as sliders, using site notifications, and anything else that you may need.

Deliver

Duration: 1 day!
Completion: 100%

We will either migrate the site to a new server or point your DNS to the staging server and deploy. Search engine declarations are submitted, Google Webmaster Console is updated, Google Analytics permissions are set, and your SSL security token is activated. Your site is now ready to share with the world! You have a safety net too — with free emergency support for life.
