In working with non-profit organizations to help them achieve their web design goals, one of the key issues they’re struggling with is the high cost of relying on web design companies for hosting, updates, and site maintenance.
This past year we helped organizations build their sites with Squarespace, resulting in beautiful, easy-to-manage websites with 24/7/365 customer support that help them pursue their mission while reducing costs, sometimes by as much as 70%
Check out this recent blog post to learn more about how we did just that for Winchester Neighbors Club, a non-profit organization in Winchester, Massachusetts.
When WNC came to me last year, co-president Holly Spring said what so many other website owners say, which is we have this website, it is out of date, we do not know how to make changes, and we need to make it work. WNC also had a special situation in that the organization changes co-presidents every two years, and needed a documented process for managing the organization's web activities.
You can read for yourself what Holly had to say about our experience working together in the review she wrote on Facebook.
"I had the pleasure of working with Ben on a heavy-lift, non-profit organization project. He helped me and the board do a complete overhaul of our core systems and change out all our in-place platforms to ones that are more modern, cost-efficient and simple to use. Ben is a pure expert and fun to work with. His demeanor is kind, informative, patient and professional. I would love to work with him again and would recommend him to anyone in search of a task-oriented and strategic partner who knows how to get stuff done. Thanks Ben”
We built a beautiful website for WNC, reduced overall costs by 70%, and the best part for me is that because Squarespace provides excellent support, WNC will never have the problem that they first came to me with, which was that they could not manage their own website.
