What makes this different from other subscription platforms like Squarespace or Wix?
While these work for very simple websites, StageHand isrobust enough to handle all types of content.
WordPress can handle more plugins and integrations, giving you the most options for customization and added tools.
We’re always keeping the platform up-to-date and adding new features, which isn’t always the case with different themes and web builders.
You have easy and direct access to consistent, real people for support.
With so many users, search engines deprioritize templated sites that reuse the same code over and over (and over and over) again.
What’s the pricing structure?
There’s a one-time setup fee that includes a website strategy and design consultation with our team as well as a one-on-one training session for you and your team.
Our monthly maintenance fee is on par with the fees we charge to keep our launched custom sites in proper working order. We understand this may still be out of range for some organizations, and a flex-pricing model may apply to your organization depending on your annual budget.
There are also various integrations or add-ons (such as content population, copywriting, content strategy) that can be included in your package depending on your needs.
What am I getting for the monthly maintenance subscription?
Access to the StageHand platform and all its features and content modules.
Monthly maintenance on the site includes free bug fixes and new-feature updates. We safely test and update plugins before they go live on your site to prevent anything from breaking or crashing the site.
Secure website hosting and database backups. We cover hosting fees — as well as domain registration fees if you’d like to transfer those.
Ongoing web consulting and support from a dedicated team of experts with a deep understanding of the needs of nonprofits and small businesses.
A gorgeous website that’s easy to navigate on any device and accessible to all types of users.
Annual training to teach new staff, volunteers or board members how to use the site.
Resource center with videosand tutorials if you forget.
