A Note from Collective Good
Collective Good selects Partners who can ease your technical, administrative, or logistical load and free you up to focus on what you were made to do. Our Partners are trusted people we know, many of whom we already work with. For example, our web development Partner, Journey Websites, is the web developer who created this site!
Keep reading below to learn about their service approach and their incredible offerings for Collective Good Members.
Please Note: Member dealings with any Partner are between you and that Partner and do not involve Collective Good. Complete any research and vetting you deem necessary or appropriate before hiring or engaging any Partners.
A lot of website development companies provide different packages for purchase. But what if you don’t know what the future has in store for how your business or ministry will grow?
With most web design companies, websites are seen as stand-alone projects. New project, new fee. Or if you’re DIYing it and self-hosting your WordPress, you’d go buy a new theme each time you update, and then figure out how to customize it yourself.
At Journey Websites, your website packages can grow with you.
You are able to buy a lower option that fits your needs now with having the peace of mind that your website can truly grow with you! We build your website to grow with you as you do, so at any time, if you want to scale up to the next level, what you’ve already paid applies to your package at the next level. Whether it’s been a few weeks or a few years, you pay the difference, not start over.
Scalable design & service packages lay a foundation that can grow with you. We’re here for the journey. So let’s chat about the most common paths taken, and the new roads paved for you by Journey Websites here in partnership with Collective Good.
So you need a website?
We know starting out with your first (or brand new) website is a daunting experience. What domain URL do you buy? How do you pick a hosting provider? WordPress or Wix or …? Themes? Color palettes? SEO? Security? The list never ends.
The challenge thrills some of us. Others reconsider if it’s even worth all the effort. Either way, we all want cost-effective, high-quality, easy-to-implement solutions.
If you’re just getting started with your first website, or a brand new website for a new endeavor, most people aren’t typically quoting out web designers. If you are, that’s great. We’re here for you and have that covered, too! But most people in this season are dreaming of a simple website with a handful of pages, and maybe a blog roll or article library. The biggest needs here are simplicity, user friendly, how quickly it can be ready, and a design that looks professional at a low price point. You’re also looking for something that can link to email marketing or send out latest articles, etc.
Sound about right?
Many leaders in this season start by exploring DIY options like Wix, Squarespace, and WordPress.com. These can be super affordable and streamlined, but often carry steep limitations and additional costs, especially as you grow.
Here are some key differentiators we suggest you investigate:
What happens if you move away to a different hosting company or outgrow the site? Most likely, you’ll need to start your website design over again from scratch. For example, Wix requires that they host your site and we’ve heard they make it difficult to migrate your data. With most of these companies, you can only export specific data, but you cannot migrate your entire website because the design requires their unique platform.
With Journey Websites, we don’t use proprietary content management systems. We build your site to grow with you, and go with you whenever you like.
Journey Websites builds and maintains the website you need for whatever stage you’re in, and we’ve partnered together to provide incredible rates and customized services for Collective Good Members.
