Living Out Our Mission

One core tenet of the Engenius mission is to “Provide Benefit to Our Community”. While the work we do every day for small businesses fulfills part of this, we also want to help advance the missions of nonprofit organizations in our community through the gifts of our time and talent.

In addition to a commitment to individual and group volunteering, we are excited to announce the 2024 [INSERT NAME OF PROJECT HERE], in which we partner with a local nonprofit to create a website to showcase their mission and needs as an organization.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is our organization eligible to receive a free website?

Does your organization meet all of the requirements listed above? If so, apply today!

What is the application timeline?

  • July 31: Applications close;
  • August 1-31: Engenius team will review applications and make a selection, communicating to all organizations who applied by the end of the month;
  • Mid-September: Project will kickoff

When will the website be complete?

We plan on kicking off the website project mid September. Our service projects typically take 10-16 weeks to complete, depending on the involvement of the organization and concurrent paid website projects.

Are there any costs associated?

It’s important that once a website is launched it’s maintained. Because of this, we request that your team invests in 12 months of the Engenius Service Plan, which ensures that your hosted website is kept up to date with the latest security updates. This also gives you the option to purchase support hours, allowing our team of experts to make updates on your behalf. This can be a monthly range of $XX-YY or paid annually.

What would be expected of me during the website project?

It’s important to our team to get to know the organizations we work with, allowing us to craft a strategically sound website. Though we’d love to be experts in all industries, it’s important to not only get information about the organization during informational meetings but for the organization to provide supporting documentation, per the request of the Project Manager and Content Strategist.

Typically this will look like the following:

  • Kickoff Meeting (1 hr – month 1)
  • Review Creative Brief (.5 hr – month 1)
  • Gather Content (2.5 hrs – month 1)
  • Review Website Design & Copy and Provide Feedback (1 hr – month 2-3)
  • Launch Approval & Training (1 hr – month 3)

Do we need to have somebody to maintain the website after it launches?

Yes, it’s important for an online presence to be maintained and not have details go out of date. Our team will train somebody from the organization at the time of launch, so they know how to do basic changes to the website. In addition to the training workbook and recording they will receive, they will also gain access to the Engenius support team while on the Engenius Service Plan.

What happens after the website is launched?

It’s important that once a website is launched it’s maintained. Because of this, we request that your team invests in 12 months on the Engenius Service Plan, which ensures that your hosted website is kept up to date with the latest security updates. This also gives you the option to purchase support hours, allowing our team of experts to make updates on your behalf.

Do you have other digital marketing services we could use?

While additional services are not included in this project (nor are you required or expected to utilize any additional services) we do have a long list of other options we help our clients with, including ads, search engine optimization, and content marketing. Check out our Services for more information and our Client Success team can talk with you about ongoing opportunities.
