Summit Leadership Capital Campaign

Summit Leadership’s 40,000-square-foot facility offers a space for leaders to gather and work. But the organization saw greater potential that could double or triple their impact. They envisioned spaces that could host everything from small meetings to large galas. To bring their vision into reality, they initiated a capital campaign. And that meant they needed flexible marketing materials to help spread the word.

Trinity Grace Farm Website

When a generous family donated land to Summit Leadership, the goal was to turn these rolling hills and woods into an accessible outdoor venue for people with differing abilities. Summit needed a website to share their vision with the community and to help raise funds for the project, which was named Trinity Grace Farm after the donors’ granddaughter.

People Incorporated Website Redesign

When People Incorporated’s website was ready for an update, we worked closely with them to conduct a content audit, then created a new, more user-friendly site with a fresh look and easier navigation. Our client saw a notable increase in visitor engagement and session duration within the first few months of the relaunch.

Boys & Girls Club of the Mountain Empire Website

Like many nonprofits, the staff and board of directors of the Boys & Girls Club of the Mountain Empire found themselves wearing many hats. They reached out to Hillhouse Creative for assistance with their website. We created a one-page WordPress website, giving the organization the foundation they needed to establish a trusted online presence.

Websites FAQs

Timelines vary depending on the size and complexity of your project, but we have the same approach to all our website projects:

Brand Benchmark (new clients) – We meet with organizational stakeholders to complete a questionnaire and come together for a 2-hour workshop to gather insights, establish goals, and ensure alignment before work starts.

Project Kickoff  – We come together again to discuss website-specific goals, gain access to necessary platforms, and discuss keywords.

Content Review – For website redesign projects, stakeholders meet to review website content and structure.

Design – Broken into two phases, we’ll meet with stakeholders to review a static design concept and review the site structure. We gather feedback and move on to developing a staging site where we add functionality and refine for viewing on various devices.

Review/Testing – After the website design and development are finished, we allocate time for our team and stakeholders to conduct a thorough examination of the website’s content and functionality.

Launch and Support – Following review and any final tweaks, the website is transitioned to the hosting site. We provide post-launch training, support, and maintenance.

We use and recommend WordPress. It’s secure, SEO-friendly, backed by a large community, and highly adaptable to various needs. We prefer not to work with other content management systems, but that’s not a hard no. If you’re interested in working in another CMS, let’s talk.

First, we’ll never guarantee Google’s #1 rank due to changing algorithms, and we caution you to beware of service providers that make this promise. Our approach to SEO involves:

  • Keyword analysis: Identifying relevant keywords for your nonprofit organization.
  • On-page SEO: Optimizing content, titles, headings, and more to align with your keywords.
  • WordPress plugins: We currently use RankMath to enhance SEO performance.
  • Regular content updates: We advise you on ways your organization can add fresh content to alert search engines your site is active and relevant.
Yes. All our website projects receive post-launch support via phone, email, or Zoom as well as video trainings for future reference. After our post-launch support, we provide options for additional support services, updates, and monthly maintenance and reporting.
Absolutely! We provide video tutorials following the launch of all our website builds so you and your team members are set up for success and have something to easily reference whenever needed. If you have specific needs or want more in-depth training, we can customize a training solution in person or via Zoom that fits your needs.
