Websites for charity freelancers and micro-agencies

Isn’t it time to let people know what you do, why, and how it can help them do more good?

Is your website the thing holding your freelance business back?

So many micro agencies and freelancers in the third sector struggle with DIY websites that are not fit for purpose. If you are just starting out or frustrated with your DIY efforts then we’d love to help.

Our intensive website design packages guide you through content creation, UX strategy, design, and development. Then we give you the tools you need to manage the site yourself and we’re here for you if you need extra support afterwards.

Hi, I'm Mellissa

FOUNDER

A personal approach - and a team to back it up

I'm passionate about making the world a better place, and I do this by creating high-converting websites for charities and purpose-driven businesses.

With over ten years of experience in marketing, SEO, and web design, I learned that there is nothing more disappointing than a beautiful website that doesn't get results. That is why I teamed up with other talented freelancers who each have their own technical expertise, creative flair, and/or hands-on marketing experience.

Together, we create websites that have it all - and can do it all.
