Understanding Your Mission

The first step in our process is to gain a deep understanding of your organization’s mission, values, and goals. We conduct workshops to learn about your target audience, key messages, and the specific outcomes you aim to achieve through your website and through your larger business goals.

Technical Assessment and Project Roadmap

A technical scope is produced to identify the functionalities and recommended features. This includes assessing your current digital presence, evaluating your content requirements and future content governance needs, understanding administrative and audience needs, mapping use-cases and identifying personas.

A project roadmap outlines the scope, timeline, and milestones and serves as a guide so the project stays on track and meets your expectations.

User-Centered Approach to Prototyping and Visual Design

User experience is at the heart of our design philosophy. We ensure that your website is intuitive, easy to navigate, and optimized for engagement while prioritizing accessibility.

Development, Custom Features and Custom Integrations

From fully-featured custom WordPress sites to headless cms frameworks, E11 designs and integrates donor forms and systems, e-commerce solutions, event management systems, volunteer sign-up tools and other custom integrations.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Optimize your website and content to enhance its visibility on search engines. By incorporating technical best practices and strategic keywords, we help your nonprofit attract more organic traffic and reach a wider audience.

Speed and Performance

Website speed and overall performance is a major factor in ranking and usability. By using state-of-the-art WordPress frameworks and hosting, we ensure a premium experience for all site users.

Rigorous Testing

Before launching your website or updates, we conduct functionality testing, compatibility checks across different devices and browsers, and user experience evaluations. We offer ongoing ADA compliance, and other performance related maintenance plans.

Seamless Launch

We manage the entire launch process, ensuring a smooth transition from your old website to the new one. Our team handles all technical details, so you can focus on celebrating your new digital home.

Ongoing Support and Maintenance

Post-launch, we provide ongoing support and maintenance to keep your website running smoothly. From regular updates and backups to troubleshooting and enhancements, we’re here to support your nonprofit’s digital needs.
