What is the “Cause and Affect Program”?

After decades in the business of building Small Business and eCommerce Websites, BPetersonDesign saw the need Nonprofits had – not just for affordable website design, but a website that would actually perform for their cause. That’s when we created our “Cause and Affect Program.” This would allow our company to “Give Back” in ways where our talent can make a serious impact.

Yes, the name of this program is no typo! We chose this name as fun wordplay. You have a cause, and we will put that into action. The word “affect” is a verb, and means to make a difference and cause a change in something. And through this program, we intend to do just that! We are taking action and building websites with the intention to help make a difference for nonprofit organizations. A great website will help expand your reach, boost your efforts, and cause more conversions, and we want nonprofits who give back every day to have an even better chance of getting their name and cause out there.   

BPetersonDesign covers half of the development fee, making all of our website packages 50% Off. Scroll down to see our Nonprofit Website Prices.

How To Qualify for the “Cause and Affect Program”

To qualify, your organization must be a 501(c)(3). Upon proof that your nonprofit is a 501(c)(3), we will move forward with the website design process.

About Our Websites for Nonprofits

BPetersonDesign takes pride in developing fully responsive and functional websites in WordPress. We work closely with Nonprofit Organizations to figure out what kind of design will represent your cause best and meet your goals. Your nonprofit website is most likely the first impression your customers have of your company. WordPress is the most common platform that most websites are being built on today. We bring a fully responsive design to your site, allowing your users and contributors to view and easily donate from their desktops, tablets, and phones.

Web Hosting & Maintenance Packages

Along with our nonprofit web development and design, this program offers our internal web hosting and maintenance packages. Any changes you send over to us will attentively get updated. No more waiting on your IT guy to get the changes done in a timely manner. Hosting your website with us allows you to bypass having to call a corporate office in who-knows-what country and having to try and talk “tech” with them when you need something. Your website will be hosted on our custom hand-built servers that we host in-house. This means we have full control of our firewalls and security.

Responsive Website Designs

Responsive Designs

Our responsive website design is the name of the game. Your site will look great and it will function perfectly on all devices, which include phones, tablets, and desktops. This will make your nonprofit website Google-friendly… and contributor friendly, too! How your website responds to different screen sizes is crucial for your web design. If users are frustrated with your design because it doesn’t respond to the device they are using, they will leave your website. This affects your bounce rate and leads to bad Google ranking.

SEO - Search Engine Optimization Company

Search Engine Optimization

We’ll help make sure your target audience will find your website once it’s launched. Choosing the correct target phrases and having the best content write-ups to reach your target audience is crucial for your website. That is why working with our Content Creators will have maximum results when building your new web design.

Content Creation for Websites

Content Creation

Your assigned point-of-contact will work with you to make sure your website has all the content it needs. You will be responsible for what pages you want on your website and the content to go on those pages. No one knows your organization and cause better than you. Our staff will be responsible for Search Engine Optimization (SEO) – that’s our job!

Keep Your Website Up To Date

Monthly Updates

Our Monthly Maintenance Package gives you the opportunity to improve your web design after it’s launched, without having a negative impact. Making small and effective updates to your website once it’s live keeps it from looking stagnant, which is a negative to search engines. Keeping your website updated keeps your following coming back and your content evolving. Our team will inform you if any updates you send our way will have a negative impact to your website’s performance so you can make an educated decision moving forward.

Website Analytics for your website

Website Analytics

Your nonprofit’s website will have Google Analytics, which will allow you to see who’s interested in your cause and will allow you to discover who is visiting your site and how they’re engaging with it. The statistics don’t lie! This will allow us to continue tweaking your website after it is launched to receive the results you want to see.

Frequently Asked Questions

Content

Your website content comes from you! Our Content Creators will take the write-ups you give us and help make it sound professional, while implementing SEO (Search Engine Optimization) within the content. You will be working with a point-of-contact to streamline the system so you’re only working with 1 person from our team. We can also grab the content that’s already up on your existing website. You can edit, add, or remove anything once your new website is launched.

The pages you receive depends on which package you choose. Once you consult with our team and decide on what content will be displayed on your new website, we can then narrow down the total pages that will be displayed on your professional business website.

Domain and Hosting

Yes! BPetersonDesign prefers that you use your existing domain (this is best practice for SEO as well). We will need your credentials to your provider in order to transfer your site from your old hosting to our hosting.

Yes! It will be up to you to determine how many emails you want with your new website.

We recommend replacing your existing site with your new nonprofit website so your content and placement doesn’t conflict with each other. By keeping your old site up and running and launching a new website, the sites may have duplicate content which will be ignored by Google. Having duplicate content and multiple websites will diminish any efforts towards SEO and great ranking on search engines.

Maintenance

You get a set amount of hours for monthly updates with each website package. If the change request exceeds the allotted time in your monthly plan, we will let you know. Our hourly web development rate outside of your chosen package is $75/hour.

Each website comes with reliable hosting, security, update maintenance, and an SSL Certificate which has a monthly cost to us associated with it. All packages beyond the Starter also include a monthly Digital Marketing package.

Yes, our hourly rate is $75/hour.

No, monthly website updates do not rollover to the next month if you do not use them.

Miscellaneous

We will launch your completed website in a matter of weeks, not months, as long as you do your part in sending us all your content. If you’re not able to send us all your content within two weeks, no worries, we will launch the website with what we have and then will make your requested monthly updates.

You will own the site once you fulfill the term agreement. After the contract term is completed, BPetersonDesign can transfer the site to your requested provider if you wish to host with someone else.

Yes! All websites provided by BPetersonDesign come with SEO functionality built in.

Websites do not come with graphic design work included. We do have Graphic Designers on staff that you can talk to for logos, re-branding, or any other design projects. These will be priced separately through our Graphic Design team.

Additional Information

What We Need to Start Your Website:

Content: To efficiently launch your website, BPetersonDesign will need a list of pages you want on your website with all the text content for your new website within two weeks.

Sitemap: A clear outline of which pages will be included on your new site.
