When Squarespace isn't enough anymore
When you’re running a small business or nonprofit, you have fewer resources than a big company, but you need be just as visible in the marketplace. To be competetive, you need a good website.
But actually, you don't just need a website; you need a digital platform.
A digital platform includes a variety of technologies that connect together to provide a seamless user experience. It might include an online store, a blog, or other features. It might integrate with third party services such as a payment processor, accounting platform, or order fulfillment system. There are a lot of moving parts, and it can be overwhelming to figure out how they all fit together. We’re here to help.
Building your digital platform
Your digital platform is the foundation of your business. It includes, at a minimum:
A strong brand that is well-suited to both the company and its target audience is essential to building trust and loyalty. We can help you develop a brand that communicates your values and resonates with your customers.
A design system is a collection of reusable components that can be combined to create a consistent user experience across your products, both digital and physical. We can help you develop a design system that will allow you to work quickly and efficiently without sacrificing quality.
A fully-featured and carefully crafted website is the foundation of your digital platform. We can help you build a website that is tailored to your specific needs and provides your customers with a best-in-class experience that is highly performant (snappy to use) and accessible (functional for all users).
Your digital platform needs to be fully integrated to provide the best user experience. We can help you integrate your website with third party services such as CRM, helpdesk, order fulfillment, email marketing and more.
Documentation and Training
It's not enough to just set up a digital platform; you need to be able to run it, too. We'll help you develop repeatable processes that will allow you to keep your platform running smoothly and make changes as your needs evolve.
Experience in the field
Sometimes, knowing where to start is the hardest part. We understand the landscape of current technologies, and we can guide you through the myriad choices that confront every small business and nonprofit.
